Rated 4 out of 5 by 94 reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Decent Washer Work fine from the start. Own this washer for maybe three months now so durability is not yet available for mention. Just dont forget to turn the water on when you hook it up. 10/20/11
Rated 1 out of 5 by Worst Purchase Ever Dear Maytag..What are you thinking? This machine will not clean, and when i put it on the heavy cycle it wont finish the washing. It will stay on wash and the lid will unlock. I had the Tech out and he replaced a little gear box. Well that is not the problem! I have to call again. I am not a picky person..But i would like to take this machine to the dump! People please buy another will never get your sheets, bedding, or anything you wash CLEAN. I miss my old Maytag...It lasted 12 years with lots of laundry every week. 10/1/12
Rated 2 out of 5 by Takes WAY too long to wash a load of clothes. I bought this washing machine on November 10, 2011. I must say first of, that the machine washes clothes as well as the next washing machine - but the washing time is WAY too long. On average, i took almost 2HOURS to wash an average size batch of all whites. I believe most of the time its due to the automatic leveling/weight sensors that the machine uses in order to calculate and fully understand the size of the load. The stop/start button is sometimes of an annoyance to deal with due to the fact that holding the button does not always cancel the washing cycle and allow access the washing compartment to add a shirt that you might have forgot to add last minute to the batch. Nonetheless, it washes clothes - no doubt about that. But, the whole washing cycle takes WAY too long(and thats without the extra rinse cycle on) 10/11/14
Rated 1 out of 5 by Unreliable I've had this machine for 3 years. Just as it hit the 3rd year the spin cycle broke. I'm left w/ wet clothes and the need for a new washer. Repair costs are too expensive and don't make sense. Now I know why the maytag repair man is never busy. 12/14/14
