Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Washer Love our washer. The first washer that was delivered made a nocking noise so a technician came over to checked it out and could not fix the problem so they replaced it. The new one did the same so they said we could pick out another set., After they left I leveled the washer myself front to back and left to right it was off at least an inch. WOW imagine that no more noise. The first washer they installed was probably just fine! You would think there installers would know better. Every thing is great now!! So we decided to keep them. Always level your washer [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not Satisfied We bought this model on 12/12/15. It was delivered on 12/19/15. Shortly after use, we found it would slowly spin dry a "small" 2'x4' quilted baby's bed blanket. It was literally "dripping wet" when the cycle was complete. Later we found the same situation on bedding, and washing a pillow. We called service. They came out, diagnosed it stating "something" read "not right". After ordering the part and returning to replace it, the next load experienced the same condition - "dripping wet" after the cycle was completed. We've contacted the original place of purchase who is beginning the process to talk with Maytag. Whether it is "by design" or a "product" defect, we do not want occasional "dripping wet" loads for the next 20 years. We're planning on giving the "next model up (7100)" Maytag washer a chance. I'm keeping my fingers crossed for a better experience.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Large Capacity washer Very good washer, knobs are sentive as if you bump washer sings to you. Does an excellent jobof washing, only thing if you need to run an extra spin cycle cannot do without having to run through a whole cycle. Otherwise great job.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Couldn't ask for more. Love this washer. Easy enough for my teenagers to use. Good to have a fresh washed load when I get home from work so it doesn't sit all day and I don't have to wait for it to wash when I get home. Cleans delicates nicely and even my mechanic's greasy "don't mix with other laundry" clothes nicely.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great washing machine! Purchased this model to replace an older Maytag washing machine. I'm very impressed with the spin cycle on this machine. The clothes come out very dry, and spend much less time in the dryer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing, simply amazing! Purchased this unit 3 weeks ago and wouldn't change a thing! Quiet, efficent, and my clothes smell amazing. I had no idea that laundry could be exciting...yes I said exciting! Sheets, blankets, curtains, I am literally creating things to wash and dry because everything comes out looking and smelling like new. And I love that it's made in the USA! Thanks Maytag

Measure Your Space

Width (side-to-side):

Add 1" to each side for air circulation.

Height (top-to-bottom):

For top-loading units, add at least 20" for door clearance.

Depth (back-to-front):

Add at least 6" to depth for door clearance, dryer vents and hookups.

Installation Space:

Requirements for new washer and dryer install: level floor with no more than 1" slope, location supporting a dryer exhaust system and hot and cold water lines within 3' of washer hookups.

Entrance & Doorways:

Measure doorways, hallways and entry points that new laundry pair must pass through.

Choose Front-Load or Top-Load

Front-Load
  • Great washer performance
  • Uses less water than traditional top loaders
  • Safe for delicate fabrics or bulky items
  • Greater capacity than most top-load models
  • Units can be arranged side-by-side or stacked atop each other
Top-Load
  • Offer good value, range of sizes, feature and prices
  • Units come in a range of capacities
  • Can only be arranged side-by-side

Additional Considerations

Important Considerations
Electrical

Confirm that electrical output is sufficient for the location of your new washer and dryer. You will need:

  • A grounded electrical outlet within 4' of the rear of both machines (no extension cord or adapter).
  • A separately designated 30 amp circuit

Set water heater to 120°F for washer.

Gas

Your home should have:

  • A CST internationally approved gas supply line
  • A shut-off valve
Disposal

Haul away is available for replacement product purchases. Unhook and move the unit you wish to be hauled away to an area from which it can be easily removed. Haul Away Details >

Installation

We offer installation options for major appliances that do not require a gas or water hookup, and are not a built-in unit. Eligible products will display the installation service during checkout. Installation Details >

Is Your Dryer Connection Gas or Electric?

There are two dryer types — gas and electric. Similar models look and perform the same, but differ in how they’re set up. Your decision between the two depends on where you will connect your new dryer:

  • Gas: needs an approved gas line with shut-off valve
  • Electric: needs a three-prong outlet with 30 amp circuit
Evaluate Features
Washer

High-Efficiency: save water, energy and the environment with High-Efficiency washers.
Water Level & Balance Sensors: innovative features for less maintenance and worry.

Dryer

Wrinkle Reduction Options: convenient options that help keep wrinkles out of clothes.
Moisture-sensing Cycles: moisture-sensing technology monitors dryness levels for efficient drying.

Choose Your Accessories

Pedestals: Create an area for storage and raise the front-load washer and dryer for more convenient loading and unloading.
Cleaners: Keep your new washer fresh by removing residue and odor left behind by water and detergent using Affresh™ Washer Cleaner.

Pick a Color and Finish

Most models available in: black, white and stainless steel.

Washer Maintenance Guide

Because all clothes washers have the potential to accumulate some amount of mildew, bacteria and odor after a period of use, we recommend that you perform the following simple routine maintenance:

  • Always follow the instructions in the use and care guide for your washing machine.
  • Always leave the washer door or lid open between uses to help dry out the washer and prevent the buildup of odor-causing residue.
  • Promptly remove laundry after the wash cycle has completed to avoid odor and rusting of metal objects on garments. Wet fabric left in a closed space is particularly conducive to the development of odor.
  • Use only the amount of detergent recommended on the detergent container. If your washer is a high-efficiency machine, use only HE detergent, not regular detergent.
  • Choose the warmest wash water temperature that is safe for the fabrics you are washing. Use of warm or hot water washers sometimes (not exclusively cold water washes) does a better job of controlling the rate at which soils and detergent accumulate.
  • Regularly clean your washing machine. If specific cleaning instructions are not included in your use and care guide, it is a good practice to run an empty cycle (without laundry) once a month using hot water and liquid chlorine bleach or a commercially available washing machine cleaner, such as Affresh™ Washer Cleaner.

There are a number of factors that can contribute to the development of mildew, bacteria and odors in washing machines, including the following:

  • Not all of the water immediately evaporates after a load is complete.
  • Washing machines generally are kept in somewhat closed and damp environments, such as laundry rooms and basements.
  • The laundry that is put into washing machines has a wide variety of organic materials.
  • Modern high-efficiency washing machines use less water and are more tightly sealed when the door or lid is closed.
  • Modern high-efficiency washing machines are designed for use with specially formulated, low-sudsing high-efficiency ("HE") detergent. Regular detergent may cause excessive suds in high-efficiency machines, and excessive suds can leave a soap film that is conducive to the development of mildew, bacteria and odor.
  • Over time, laundry habits have changed, including the use of less bleach, more fabric softener and more frequent cold water washes. These habits may increase the rate at which detergent and soil residue builds up inside the washer, which in turn may result in undesirable odor.
