        Comments about Maytag 4.8 Cu. Ft. Top Loading Washer - White:

        After reading some reviews I wondered if I was making the right choice to go with Bravos. One load finished and I am certain that I did make the right choice. Yes, it is higher than my previous Maytag but, I use it as a stretching session. The larger capacity is wonderful for bulky items like bath mats and pillows. The noise level is so much lower that I had to check to see if it was running. I love all the specific settings to get my wash just right! My clothes are coming out cleaner and softer. My sheets have never felt so good! And now my washer is cleaner too with the special clean cycle! Thank you Maytag for stepping up to the challenge to produce a better product. I am one happy customer.

              After using a front loader for years wanted to go back to the top loader and am very happy with the performance of this top loader. The machine is quiet and no problems with balance. I have not used all the features yet, only having the machine for a few months, but I look forward to trying them all.

                This washer performs well overall. It can get off balance at times with heavy loads. Otherwise it washes clothes clean, my other washer didn't do that as well(samsung) that's why I chose to go with Maytag again. The cycles it goes through can be a little loud at times, or it sounds like a truck coming up the road. Otherwise I would recommend it, if there is a quieter model out there someone let me know.

                    I am happy with the new washing machine. I like the large capacity and the many different choices of settings. The longer washing time takes some getting used to for the settings I use mainly. I have not tried out all of the different cycles but I am especially pleased with the hand wash cycle which is a plus. So far I am very happy with my choice. I would definitely recommend this machine. For someone with many loads of wash in the end it would be a time saver because of the large capacity. It looks very stylish as well.

                        The capacity of this machine is excellent, even the oversized quilts and comforters that would call for a trip to the laundromat fit well and get exceptionally clean. There are many great features to this machine and the control panel is easy to understand and operate. We were a bit skeptical about this model not having an agitator, but have been pleasantly surprised of the cleaning ability. This machine uses much less water than our previous model and yet still gets everything clean.

                                We love everything about this washer-it's big, it's quiet, our clothes, bedding and pet beds come out perfectly. Also, it fits in the same space as our previous front loader.

                                    Was initially scared with people posting about knotted balls of twisted shirts and sheets, but we never had that problem and it's been 30+ loads. The cleaning cycle went fine too. Clothes are clean and not ruined. The machine does run a bit long for some cycles, but since it's energy efficient, I guess I am not wasting anything but time.... Make sure it's level though, it can shake when spinning quickly. Would recommend to anyone.
