Rated 5 out of 5 by Love it! Excited about the warranty Maytag has to offer. I love this washer/dryer combo so far. I can fit a LOT of clothes in there. I thought the overnight wash and dry option would be for more clothing (it's really just for one or two items) but this is really helpful if you are in a pinch and need something washed and dried to wear the next day - especially us busy moms! Lots of options on this washer. Really like that you can add the soap once and it's good for 12 loads. Lots of automatic options that take care of the laundry for you. Took me a little time to get accustomed to all the options. It is very easy to accidentally brush against the machine though and change settings. I have mine stacked so my options sometimes get changed when moving my wet clothes up to the dryer. Love the look and feel of the dial and the buttons though. I like the "music" the buttons make too. Although sometimes they are a little loud and I need to turn it off if the kids are sleeping. This washer even tells you when to run the clean cycle, which I like. 6/14/13
Rated 5 out of 5 by I've named my washer Fred. I originally wanted an LG washer, but also wanted to purchase from Costco, so the Maytag was my 2nd choice. What a mistake I would have made buying an LG. I love this machine so much I named this baby Fred. Fred is so quiet when he works, does an amazing job on stains, and I love the auto fill soap dispenser!!! I have to mention the easy to use control panel. Very clear and easy to use! I would highly recommend this washer! 7/29/13
Rated 5 out of 5 by This product is quiet and efficient Looks great, many setting options, appears to have longer cycle times than previous washer. Love the auto soap dispenser and easy access bleach and fabric softener dispenser. Very quiet!! 8/2/13
