Product Reviews
Rated 3.4 out of 5 by 8 reviewers.
Rated 1 out of 5 by disappointed Have had this washer less than 2 weeks. So far, quick cycle gets stuck part way thru the cycle. Have had to cancel twice and take clothes out, unfinished. Also washed a queen comforter and that barely fit. I was assured repeatedly that it would take a king comforter, no problem :( I have real doubts. 6/16/10
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best Washer Ever I just love this washing machine. My clothes are coming out so clean. The dynamic venting helps with the typical washer smell. It has all the features you will ever need. D 9/28/10
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best washing machine ever! Maytag MHWE450WW washer Jan 18, 2011: This is THE BEST washer I've ever had or used! I LOVE it and can't say enough good about it. I bought it in Nov 2010 so I've had it about 2 months and I do 2 or 3 loads a day with a family of 5. I researched a lot. I subscribed to Consumer Reports to research even more. The bottom line was that the best washers according to user reviews were this Maytag MHWE450WW and the Samsung. I really wanted to support our U.S. economy and buy American...even though this washer is made in Germany. The dryer is made in Ohio. Maytag was not good several years ago but they recognized that and revamped their company and are now making commercial grade appliances built to last, like they used to be in our parents' day. This washer is built to last and truly is commercial grade. I went from a top loader to this front loader, and in my hours and hours and hours of reading reviews on every website I could find, I saw that people going from a top loader to front loader that uses less water, had a very hard time believing that the front loader could really wash their clothes clean because they saw through the window that the clothes were not swimming in water. I can tell you to not let that keep you from going front loader efficient because it gets my clothes cleaner than my old top loader. I also ready lots of people talking about how front loaders get stinky because they get moldy because the door is so airtight. Well I haven't had one bit of a problem with that because I always open the washer door and detergent door after clothes are finished washing and leave them open. Duh. How hard is that? I've left clothes in it overnight and then opened the door in the morning before dashing off to work and when I get home, the clothes are still fresh as a flower and no mold or mildew. The people who have written about that must keep the door closed so it is wet in there all the time and molds. Again, I have no problem with that whatsoever. I love the "sanitary" wash, the "power" wash, and the "whitest whites" wash. I love the way I can wash a king size blanket, king mattress cover, king sheets and pillowcases all in one load and they come out fresh and clean. I wash pillows and quilts and they come out great. I can wash 10 pair of men's jeans easily. Not having the agitator in the way makes you have so much more room for clothes. I love the way it has a heater that keeps the water hot for sanitizing and whitest whites. I love the way it spins clothes so "jet engine" fast that they are pretty much dry when the washer is done. My kids and husband and I like to watch it still because it's amazing. The dryer is great too and has a steam feature. I use way, way less detergent, which is saving money. I haven't checked my water and sewer bill but it's got to be less. And my dryer runs for a much shorter time. I have 2 teenage daughters and it has been their job to do laundry for many years, but now I find myself running in there to do laundry because it's actually fun. I know that sounds like a lie but it's not. Every time I do laundry, I come out saying, "I love my new washer and dryer". And I'm thankful to the Good Lord that I was able to buy them. 1/18/11
Rated 5 out of 5 by Lives Up to Maytag Name We recently purchased the Maytag Front Load Washer MHWE450W and could not be more pleased. It is well-made (in Germany no less), has wonderful controls, and looks attractive in my daughter's home. She has a new baby, so the unit is already seeing regular use. I am amazed at the spin speed, freedom from vibration and quiet operation. It is great that Whirlpool has made sure the reputation of the Maytag name is preserved in the new line. 4/19/11
