Not enough water to agitate or wash bedding
from El Paso
Comments about Maytag Top Loading 5.3 Cubic Foot Washer:
After being a Maytag user for 30 plus years I recently upgraded my agitator washing machine to the 5.3 Bravos XL. It has great features, a beautiful appearance but it uses so little water it does not wash effectively. At 5.3 capacity it is advertised to wash a large comforter. I washed a twin comforter 2 complete cycles and there were 6 square inch patches of dry material. With inadequate water the clothes or comforter don't get wet, don't agitate and don't clean. With a deep fill option, like on the 4.7 agitator model, it would probably be a great machine. I will be returning this machine. Of the high efficiency non-agitator machines I have only seen Kenmore with a deep fill option. However I think these new high efficiency washers are as effective as the failed 1.3 liter toilets that need 3 cycles to flush. It is not high efficiency to need two rinses to eliminate soap nor two washes to clean a comforter. Definitely not recommended for bedding or large family washes.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Awesome features and easy to use!
By Laundry Man
This is my first Maytag washer and I love this product. Almost can't wait for my dryer to go out because I will be replacing it with a Maytag. Large household of 7 and constantly giving it a workout and it holds up without a doubt.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
Exactly what I wanted! Deep water washing! Though, truth be told I am like a kid in a candy store with all the fun features on this washer! I would recommend to anyone!
I really like the bedding setting.

I bought my washing machine a couple of weeks ago to replace a much smaller machine that came with our house when we bought it. It is awesome to be able to fit my bed spread in the giant tub, and get it clean!

I love my new washer! It has a lot of features and makes laundry so much simpler. With the push of a few buttons it is taken care of and taking the guesswork out for me!
THE BEST I EVER HAD
from RURAL COLORADO
THE LARGE CAPACITY IS GREAT. CAN DO LARGER LOADS, LIKE JEANS AND TOWELS. I LIKE THE EXTRA CHOICES FOR CYCLES ASWELL.
Love the low water cleaning power.
I bought this about 2 weeks ago. I love the way clothes come out clean. The action of the washer seems to cause less wrinkling in the dryer.
I have only been using it for a few weeks, but so far I am pleased with the washer. The delivery men were helpful in explaining how it works. The manual was well done, so I feel comfortable that I am using it properly. Results thus far have been great. I am hopeful that the top loader will not develop the mold and odor problems that our front loader had.
So far so good
from Green Bay, WI
We're still learning how to best use this machine's capabilities, but so far we are pleased with its performance.
I recently purchased this washer and am very impressed with it. It fills itself with the correct amount of water and does an excellent job really cleaning my clothing. Extra large capacity is perfect for blankets and comforters.
