Summary: I just get a tangled mess of clothes in one giant wad that I spend 5 minutes untying. And, of course, clothes don't get clean. I put items in one by one and don't overload but it doesn't matter. Long sleeves and pant legs cannot be tolerated by this machine.
Summary: I saved for this washer and couldn't be more disappointed. I have gone back to my "old" washer in the basement. If you want your clothes rinsed and smelling good then this is your washer, but everything I want cleaned comes out just as dirty as when I put it in. Am I doing something wrong? My clothes are not heavily soiled.
Summary: It is a front loaded dryer. A reason a person buys a front loader is one should be able to wash oversized items. THis washer when it get a conforter will not go into spin. Th program will try continue to try and balance the load. THis only happened once. Seems that anything larger than a queen will not work. I saw someone else had this issue. They should put this in the descprition. The detergent dispensor is awkward.
Summary: We recently purchased the Maytag Front Load Washer MHWE450W and could not be more pleased. It is well-made (in Germany no less), has wonderful controls, and looks attractive in my daughter's home. She has a new baby, so the unit is already seeing regular use. I am amazed at the spin speed, freedom from vibration and quiet operation. It is great that Whirlpool has made sure the reputation of the Maytag name is preserved in the new line.
Summary: Maytag MHWE450WW washer Jan 18, 2011: This is THE BEST washer I've ever had or used! I LOVE it and can't say enough good about it. I bought it in Nov 2010 so I've had it about 2 months and I do 2 or 3 loads a day with a family of 5. I researched a lot. I subscribed to Consumer Reports to research even more. The bottom line was that the best washers according to user reviews were this Maytag MHWE450WW and the Samsung. I really wanted to support our U.S.
Summary: Have had this washer less than 2 weeks. So far, quick cycle gets stuck part way thru the cycle. Have had to cancel twice and take clothes out, unfinished. Also washed a queen comforter and that barely fit. I was assured repeatedly that it would take a king comforter, no problem :( I have real doubts.
