What's Inside Matters
For over 100 years, you've heard a lot about their drum rollers and drawer gaskets, their belts and hinges - the commercial grade parts they put inside their appliances. Those parts matter. They make their machines among the most dependable washers, ranges and refrigerators around. Available at AJ Madison.

But they realize you don't serve gaskets at your dinner parties. And that you've probably never fluffed and folded a roller. They know that dependability means something a little more to you than just parts and pieces.

It means having cold champagne to pop when the clock strikes midnight. Having virtually spotless glasses when your friends drop in. And cutting into a perfectly baked cake on your daughter's 10th birthday. It means having all the stuff you depend on clean, cold and cooked - on time, every time.

The way they put their machines together is never going to change. But they understand that the reason you depend on them is not only because of what they put inside them, but also because of what you put inside them.

They get it. What's Inside Matters.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Value This is my second Maytag of this model. The first Maytag I purchased last year, used for 6 months and then it went with my house when I sold my house to move to Utah. I was so impressed with the unit that I bought another once I found a new place in Utah. I've had no issues with these two purchases. I wanted an HE machine but I didn't want to spend more than $600. With the rebate, this machine came in under $'s a no brainer. My family's clothes are clean with every wash. The bulky cycle is great when you want to immerse bulky items in water...the entire drum fills with water. It's a great way clean really dirty clothes the old fashioned way. 5/13/13
Rated 1 out of 5 by I hate this washer! I wish I had done more research; I never would have bought this washer if I had known how poorly it performs. Clothes do not come out clean, even with an extra rinse as standard. Bulky items like dog beds end up with the top filthy and bottom cleaned, so I have to wash them multiple times and they still aren't clean. I'll wish for the day it wears out and I can replace it with a regular agitator washer, but with my luck this one will last forever! The energy efficiency isn't there if I routinely have to wash everything multiple times. I also dislike the very wrinkled way things come out after the spin cycle. No-iron shirts are no longer no-iron. 9/15/12
Rated 1 out of 5 by Disappointed with MVWC450XW This is the first new washing machine I've ever purchased, I've always had second-hand top loaders. Unlike my previous machines which ran fine, this machine has been a series of disappointments: 1) clothes become extremely wrinkled, I've always hung my clothes to dry to conserve energy, now I'll have to spend a lot more time ironing, 2) I've always used a cold water wash to conserve energy, with no problems with my old machines using liquid detergent. Now I use HE liquid detergent in cold water and the clothes come out covered in white blotches. Dissolving the detergent in hot water solved this (I use the recommended amount or less) 3) sometimes the machine just doesn't go into it's cycling after sensing. I have to watch and make sure it starts. This takes several minutes of standing around. If it fails to start, I turn off and on again to solve the problem. This happens with any size load. Very inconvenient because I can't just walk away after starting a load. I'm seriously thinking of asking the seller if I can return it. I liked the fact that it had a simple interface and that probably made it less costly. 2/6/13
