        Comments about Maytag 4.5 Cu. Ft. Front Loading Washer - Slate:

        We purchased the Maytag Maxima to replace a 10 year old front loader. The old unit was unreliable and costly to repair, and went with the Maytag because it had a good reputation for reliability. The Maytag Maxima also had good ratings on Consumer Reports.

        We like that the Maytag Maxima is quiet, handles large loads, and efficiently deals with small loads too.

        It would be nice if the "chimes" could be disabled and if the door stayed open 180 degrees. We try to keep the door open as much as possible for fear of mold (lesson learned from our previous front loader).

        Overall, we are happy with the Maytag Maxima after a month of ownership.

                    I bought this two months ago and love it. It is so much more effective at cleaning with less water than my agitator machine and is gentler on clothes even when not on the delicate cycle. Definitely the best machine I've ever had.

                                I was going to give up on the Maytag brand after a horrible experience with an HE top loader that did not clean clothes effectively. Consumer Reports gave the Maxima very high marks all around, soooo I bought one to replace the 3 yr old top loader.
                                So happy with this machine. Cleans effectively, quiet, fast, and eco-friendly.

                                      It's been a month and so far this machine is excellent, it out washes my old machine a 100 times over... it spins the water out of the clothes to where they are almost dry, it has cut the drying time in half.. saving me a lot on my gas bill. It is VERY VERY quit.

                                            I'm very happy with my new Maytag washer. It spins out way more water then my old washer which cuts dryer time.
                                            I wish I could turn off the sound. My laundry room is quite small and every time I brush against the control panel it turns the power on and plays loud tones. A distraction but a bothersome one.

                                                  My mother had a wringer Maytag washer when I was a child in the 40s and 50s. It was a real workhorse with 5 or 6 out of 8 at home on the farm at one time. That old Maytag got lots of hard use and I don't ever remember it breaking down. So when it came time to upgrade to an automatic washer my mom got a Maytag. I've owned three sets of Maytags in the last 25 years. Every new home we moved into got a new set of Maytags. In 27 years I've never had to have a service call or do any self repair on any of those machines. Recently it became necessary to replace a set of Whirlpools that came with our current home. I naturally purchased a Maytag front loader machine with matching dryer. We immediately, on the first load, noticed an improved difference in the laundry. The clothing came out much cleaner and we really love the power cycle. We have a lot of white linnens and white kitchen towels that really get stained and grimmy. The power cycle returns this wash product to it's prestine white condition. Maytag machines, for us, are the standard.

                                                        Had this for ~ 2 weeks. Very shocked at how much drier my clothes are at end of cycle compared to my Neptune from 12 years ago. Hope this one will last at least another 12. Love the delay wash.

                                                              My husband and I bought this washer just about two weeks ago. Our other washer was practically new and it never cleaned the clothes very well and was always going off balance. I had to go in the laundry room several times with the LG and rearrange the laundry inside.It did not matter how small or large the load was the machine always went out of balance. This Maytag not only cleans the clothes but it NEVER goes out of balance. The best part is I can put large quilts in it and it comes out fabulously clean. I cannot say enough good things about this washer. I wish I had bought this before I even considered the other one we had. It is well-made and I expect to have this for years.
