                                            I had to replace a front loader (not Maytag) that failed after about 7 years. I liked the idea of a HE machine that uses less water so when I found out that Maytag made a top loader that is HE, I investigated. It is very well made, quiet in operation and very efficient. It has numerous settings to customize the type of load you want to do. My appliance repair guy recommended Maytag when my other washer failed, I'm glad I listened to that advice!

                                                  We have had this washer for 2 years. We love the water savings and efficiency. BUT This is NOT Commercial technology, as we just paid $200 for repair on the washer. Reported a Loose Nut caused it. Has Maytag not heard of Locktight or even a nylon insert Locknut? If the washer was actually in a Commercial setting, It would have broke down in 60 days! There are only 2 people using this machine, I would hate to think how often a family with children would need repairs!

                                                        I love the features, does excellent job, I never had a problem with my husband's clothes, shirts are always white and every load is always extra-clean!! of course the use of a good brand laundry soap is always necessary (I use tide)... very important: read the use and care guide!!

                                                              I keep looking for stuff to wash, because it's fun to use this washer!
                                                              All the new features are very cool.
                                                              Using less water and less detergent is a definite PLUS!
                                                              I am looking forward to eventually using all the cycles. I have only had it a short time, but I am loving it already, it's a big improvement over the "old style" washer.
