Will never buy Maytag again!
Comments about Maytag Bravos 4.6 Cu. Ft. Top Loading Washer - White:
I purchased a top of the line, very expensive Maytag washet and dryer. After only having 3 years I'm having to replace it. The parts to have it repaired cost over $400. plus labor. Then no guarantee it won't do it again in 3 years. It will not spin water out of my cloths 90% of the time and when it does work it sounds like a jet plane. Very disappointed !!!
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

It does wash, but always out of balance - does not matter how light or heavy the load. if you want to wake the house this is it.

Sounds like a jet engine
from Clarksville, MD
We bought this washer a little over 3 years ago. From the beginning we had difficulty with detergent residue left on dark clothing. We tried using even miniscule amts. of detergent...still didn't help. The only solution seems to be using the Bulky load setting, but doesn't this defeat the purpose of the HE concept?About 6 months ago we started noticing a grinding noise during the agitation cycle and an extremely loud, jet engine like noise during the spin cycle. There's obviously some sort of manufacturer's defect going on with these washers...I've heard WAY too many similar stories. Maytag says this isn't covered by their 2-10 year warranty. Maytag needs to start putting quality assurance and customer satisfaction above profit margins and make this right!
Worse Washer and Dryer I ever purchased
from Helnetta NJ
I bought the Maytag Bravo XL 7cu ft series about 4 months ago and have had nothing but problems with it! For example: There is not enough water to clean our clothes in addition to rinsing the detergent and residue left on my partially wet garments. Most of the time I am detangling the garments after a wash in which the arms of my shirts are strangled around my jeans. Our pants come out of the wash with one leg partially wet the other dry! Comforters are another problem, (I bought the larger drum just for this purpose) however, the comforter does not rinse, so I have to rerun the SPIN cycle several times so it is NOT sopping wet! It takes hours to wash one comforter, and then to dry it "senses" that its dry, when it clearly is not! My items come out of the wash wrinkled, dust residued, and often times smells of my perfume. I've been doing laundry for almost 30 years, so this is NOT my first wash/dryer. I have two boys who grew up playing football, baseball, soccer, ground in dirt was a constant with their uniforms. I never had a problem with my prior washer or dryer. I deeply regret my purchase!!

Poor Reliability and Customer Service
By Craig M
from New Boston Michigan
Purchased A Bravos thinking I would do a good thing for the ecology (conserve Energy/Water) and just before the end of the warranty period it started making bad noises. Called their tech service and was advised I probably was not balancing the load properly. Tried their suggestions and the noise kept getting louder. Again called tech service and then was advised it probably was the transmission and cost to repair was more than new purchase. Was offered a 20% rebate on a new machine. Enough from Maytag, a Speed Queen is being delivered today. On a similar note, a out of warranty LG TV experienced a problem and was covered 100% by warranty. So much for trying to buy American built.

Out with the Old/Bad Machine
do not buy!
from claremont nh
This machine does not clean clothes! Clothes come out dirty. I have cleaned my machine and tried the different cycles, water temp, load size. Some of the clothes come out dry in spots. I am constantly rewashing clothes.
Bravos XL® HE Top Load Washer
from Harrington, DE
I purchased this washer 3 years ago. Glad I took the extended warranty. However, the control board went bad on Thanksgiving Day and it is taking 6 weeks to get the part from the manufacturer. I would not buy a Maytag again. Costs $20.00 every time I go to the Laundromat. No compensation for that or my time. No loaner to use either. I liked the washer until now. Service is not acceptable. They need to keep parts available.
Worst washer I have ever seen
By Wasted my money
from Pearland, TX
Doesn't get clothes clean. Wash sheets and they have dry spots on them that never saw water. Have to wash 2-3 times to get mild dirt from clothes. Tried every setting.
from Chino Hills, Ca
This was a great machine for 3 years. Now I am getting F-51 errors which keep the machine from completing the wash cycle. Repairs are estimated around $200+. I believe a good washer in a household should last over 3 years.
Doesn't wash cloths, crumples them up into balls and wears them out. When washing on on Deep Water Wash cycle it fills to about 3-4 inches and doesn't even turn the cloths over.Machine really looks good!
