Summary: the worst machine ever owned. does not clean clothes. even had service out only to find nothing was wrong. so it doesn't clean clothes and maytag says all is fine. I now wash clothes at girlfriends house. She still has the old machine where you set the load size. All comes out clean and smells wonderful. NOT AT MY HOUSE WITH THIS MACHINE. I'ved owned it for 4 unhappy years. Maytag should do the right thing and offer replacement.
Summary: The washer looks good. I do not like the automatic water level. I have to open the washer at least 3 times to fill it up. The washer also has an odor. I have used the washing machine cleaners and it still stinks. If you clean it and then put the lid down for a couple of days, it smells so bad you have to wash something with lots of bleach so the clothes won't smell. I would NOT recomend it. Our old machine was a Maytag and it was really good.
Summary: I bought my Maytag Washing Machine about 2 1/2 years ago and for the first two years it performed just fine. Now for about the past 6 months the machine is dancing across the floor and vibrating so bad it has caused many cracks where the wall meets the ceiling. Also the clothes sometimes are coming out of the spin cycle more wet than they should be and I am finding that some of the clothes are turning inside out and are tearing/shredding!
Summary: It just doesn't clean clothes. It looks nice, is easy to use and a good price, but what good is that if it doesn't clean the clothes? The cloths just sit in the tub, it doesn't use enough water and the agitation is so wimpy the clothes don't cycle around in the wash, what was on the top when you start the load will still be there when it finishes. The auto water level system doesn't work, and the sensor will break within the first 3 years.
Summary: I have had this washer for 2 years, right before my warranty expired I had to have it serviced. They had to replaced basically everything in the washer to make it run again, the motor, the pump, the gear box. Now after another year it will not work. I need to decide if I am going to call the repairman or purchase a new washer. Do not buy this washer!
Summary: Having the Maytag name, I thought that this would be a great washer. Quite the opposite. I've had it a year and a half and already had to replace the timer. Now, it's just started with the same problem. I'll not buy another Maytag appliance.
Summary: Wash machine measures the weight of the clothes. Then it fills the tub accordingly. I always let washer do its "thing" (lol) & then I have to open it as if I am loading more clothes. It re-weighs the load & fills with more water. Usually to the top (max load)! So you either wash clothes with too little water or not enough. I wait & gather clothes for FULL LOADS ONLY now and do the above. That way I'm not wasting water. Its horrible!
Summary: The problem with the machine is that the cold water does not flow all the time and stock. After checking all the hoses as well as the water line, all is working, but he cold water still does not flow continuously thus not allowing the machine to fill to the proper level and wash the clothers. Its a appearance is nice but that is where it stops. Iwouldn't recommend it to my worst enemy. Total unaccepated from a company who used to produce such a top line quality items.
Summary: I do not like the new water saver washers. I purchased this because of Maytag reliability, large capacity, and I felt confident I had purchased a good brand. Probably all water saver washers use basically the same mechanism. It is just the lack of water used to wash the clothes that I do not like. The clothes do not come clean despite the use of expensive proper laundry detergent. Many loads have to be washed twice! Does this save energy or money?
Summary: I have to agree with NotWasherHappy. I was all excited when i purchased this washer. I have thrown in a double size comforter into the machine and when i took it out the center of the comforter never got wet. One other example i throw a pair a dress pants into the washer that had some mud on the knee. I removed the pants and the mud was still there. I had to rewash them.
