Description
Together, Whirlpool and Maytag emerge a more compelling company positioned to deliver the most innovative portfolio of products and services to consumers throughout the world. Together, they will continue to find new ways to delight consumers while striving to fulfill their vision of "Every Home . . . Everywhere with Pride, Passion and Performance."

Every Bravos X laundry pair features long-lasting commercial-grade components, including a unique impeller that has higher tensile strength, stainless steel springs that are more resistant to corrosion and a drive system that is tested to twice its life.

American ingenuity and commitment. Maytag performance and dependability. This is what happens when an industry leader sets out to prove that what can be conceived can be achieved. Maytag started with a clean slate. They finished with a radical new design, fewer moving parts and a platform that delivers an affordable combination of powerful cleaning and energy efficiency.

Talk about capacity. At 3.6 cu. ft., the Bravos X washer is large enough to handle big loads, and the wide-opening lid makes it easy to get clothes in and out. Paired with a 7.4 cu. ft. dryer, bulky items like comforters or heavy coats are easily handled.

Rated 5 out of 5 by This product is superior Excellent quality. very efficient and quiet. Excellent energy saver. 9/26/12
Rated 5 out of 5 by This is a great washer. I love how it saves water and is easy to use. I LOVE my new washer! 10/30/12
Rated 4 out of 5 by First HE Washer The Bravo X is my first HE washer. I chose the top loader because of the smell of the front loaders I heard about from my sister. I think they fixed that by leaving the door open to dry and stop the molding smell. For the most part the cleaning is good. Whites don't get really white unless you change the Soil Level to Heavy which gets you a little better wash. Safe to get the front loaders now that they fixed the dampning smell. The other thing people complain about is how you have to load the washer around the middle, and how wrinkle clothes can get. Loading you get used to quickly so don't worry. Heavy wrinkling happens depending on the amount of clothes you put in and settings. This can be alleviated by setting Spin Speed to Low (which is also indicated in the manual). Lastly, if you want capacity get the XL which will cost a little more. However, I can wash my king sized summer bedding with no problem in the X. 10/23/12
Rated 5 out of 5 by Wish I had this 10 years ago I love everything about this washer This is by far the best washing machine I have ever owned. Large capacity, super quiet, uses less water, so less expensive on the water bill, and electric bill, and really gets my clothes clean. 9/28/12
