Summary: No matter what I wash, (sheets, towels, etc.) the machine goes off balance...I make a special point of sorting out the load before starting and machine still goes off balance making very loud disturbing banging sounds until I run downstairs and sort out the wet, heavy clothes...my old machine never gave me this problem...1st time using a machine with no center agitator...cleans nicely though.
Very satisfactory replacement for previous Maytag Neptune

Summary: We purchased this washer in August, 2011, to replace a 13 year old Maytag Neptune dryer. It has worked excellently and we have had no problems or complaints. I have seen the other Amazon comments regarding clothes being tangled, and to be honest we have not had this problem. In fact I decided to write this review in order to provide a contrasting point of view, because I feel that the rating of this product should be higher than those other reviews would suggest.
Summary: Everything comes out with wrinkles that I never experienced before. I have to put my clothes in the Dryer on Air Dryer for fifteen minutes to get the wrinkles out........I do not like the control cycles that this machine has. Large items do not wash well in this washer and my clothes always have a feel of not being rinsed when I take them out of the washer......So what I safe on water I spend on the Dryer in "Air Dry" Not one thing I like about this washer.........
now i understand why people say do not buy this set...

Summary: I didnt quite understand why people complained about the washer tangling clothing and leaving them a wrinkled mess, until i bought a pair, and the dryer 'stopped heating' THREE TIMES. every time we had to call service, i was forced to hang all my clothes- that's when i learned about the wrinkled, tangled mess they become. if you are just whisking the clothing straight in to the dryer, you would hardly notice, but if you hang anything? watch out!
Summary: We purchased the 5.0 cu ft Maytag Bravos washer January 2, 2011. The unit was delivered and installed three weeks later. This in not the steam washer. The machine tangles clothing into such a mess everything has to be put in the dryer prior to hanging up to dry. Even with the use of pre-treatment many stains remain on our clothing and there are pin holes in cotton garments. I am extremely careful to zip zippers and still there are holes that occur.
Summary: Was so dissappointed. Have not been able to do a load that doesn't come out with CRAZY wrinkles. I like to line-dry as many of my clothes as possible, but this washer makes them sooo wrinkley that I cannot hang them. Even putting them in the dryer does not remove the wrinkles that the washer puts into them. This machine may save water, but I will lose money and time running the dryer and iron instead of line-drying. (I did very little ironing with my old washer.
Summary: This washer works really well. My wife and I use only cold water now, and it cleans better than our old washer using hot. We got this one because the store did not have the smaller capacity one in stock and gave us a heck of a deal on the larger capacity. I did not think it would be a big advantage since it is just us two at home now, but what we did in three loads before now takes us one.
Summary: Seems to wash the cloths nicely. Has a huge stainless steel tub. Was able to put in four sheets and six pillow case and still had plenty of room left. The cycles seems a little long and it has three spin cycles. The last one really goes super fast. Sheets come out fairly dry damp dry and took about 56 min. to dry them, (including the cool down cycle). The matching dryer said it should take 90 min, but it dried in 57 min.
