Product Reviews
Rated 2.3 out of 5 by 11 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by A Good Washer I shopped for energy/water efficiency and price. Delivery took a while, so don't get rid of your old washer until the new one arrives. This is a heavy duty machine. I use it on delicate for most of my wash loads, but for the first time, I can wash rugs and bulky laundry with no worries. The machine can handle it. 7/10/11
Rated 5 out of 5 by Happy with this machine I am happy with the performance and the price. I was told before purchasing that the machine was loud while starting and changing cycles but that doesn't bother me as my laundry room is away from the other rooms. The clothes are clean and spun well. The on/off rubber button doesn't feel too durable but I have gotten accustomed to it. I think this Maytag is well worth the price. The rebate is a plus. 7/15/11
Rated 1 out of 5 by Poor Quality This water saving machine leaves residue on clothes forcing you to re-wash 2 & 3 times so in the end, you are using more water and wasting more time on laundry. Using 1 or 2 spoons of detergent, like recommended, gets you the same results. I spoke with the manufacturer at least 8 times and have had service a half a dozen times and they find nothing wrong with the machine. On each occasion, they recommended something different and I have tried them all. Use less detergent; try less clothes; wipe out the inside with a damp cloth; try running hot water first; put detergent in-let machine fill-then add clothes; place clothes around center as if there were an agitator; use affresh tablets after every few loads and they even had me run an empty load with white vinegar. Nothing works!! I also notice dry streaks and patches on the finished load where the clothes are not even wet! If I could, I wouldn't even give it 1 star. I DO NOT RECOMMEND THIS WASHER!! 12/3/11
Rated 1 out of 5 Won't Re commend This washing machine maybe efficient but takes more than 1 hour to wash a batch of clothes no matter the size or setting. I would not reccomend this to anyone. 1/2/12
