Excerpt: I replaced a top loader that was over 15 years old. I was skeptical of getting a front loader because of the things I heard about odors in the machine and on clothes. I've had my machine since 7/4/13 and while it may be too early to tell, I've not encountered any problem with odors. I follow the recommendations to wipe the door and rubber seals after I'm done with washing. I also run the washer once per month with a tablet made to clean the machine.
Pros: Adjustable Settings, Clean Clothes Well, Energy Efficient, Large Capacity, Quiet, Spins Clothes Dry
Summary: This washer replaced a 6 yr. old Cabrio top-loader. Our clothes are clean and shed a lot less lint than our old unit. While doing the very first load, I thought the machine was not working. Then I realized it was just so QUIET! Our Cabrio sounded like a helicopter landing. Now when this washer is at top spin speed, my family can't believe it. Great features, and very easy to use. This model is now discontinued. Get it while you can!
Summary: I've been using this washer for the past two months and I absolutely love it. My clothes come out smelling so clean and fresh and the machine does a great job on whites. I leave the door open for the washer and dryer to avoid issues with mold and smell that I've read on others' comments. So far I've not had any issues with that.
Summary: This was the 2nd Maytag Dryer we have purchased. Installation went fine with good directions so no problems there but unfortunately the unit has something turning with the drum that is banging on the outside cabinet. I expect its the drum temperature sensor as the unit got way to hot during intitial use. Service will need to come in to fix the problem.
Summary: I'v been enjoying the washer for about two months but started noticing a peculiar problem. The liquid detergent trickles in to the drum even when it's not starting up. The liquid gets in direct contact with clothes as it drips on the inside of the door. For most clothes like jeans this isn't an issue but delicate fabrics there's a noticeable darkened stains appearing. I have some nice white shirts and sheets that are ruined now.
