Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great washer....Long run times.... New front load washer for us, great job cleaning, cold water can run up to 1:20 minutes. Seems extreme and slow. Let be the fresh cycle. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 1 out of 5 by from If I could give ZERO stars I would! This machine lasted 1.5 years. The front panel board is shot.$765 plus service trip.No way!!! How does Maytag even sell this stuff!
Date published: 2017-08-25
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Washer!! This washer is excellent! The reviews note a problem with the door not having the option for right/left swing. I had the same issue, but changed my washroom utility arrangement (minor cost) and put my washer on the left and dryer on the right and the doors swing in the correct direction. No problem! Don't let the door issue stop you from purchasing this great machine.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Poor design for usability I bought this without realizing that the door only opened to the left. Because my setup requires the washer to be right of the dryer I am always fighting to get the laundry over or around the door to get it in the dryer. My Neptune allowed me to change the door direction to the right side and I assumed this one would be the same. It isn't! I have physical limitations and picking clean damp laundry up from the floor isn't a lot of fun.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Love HATE Relationship I love the functionality of this washer, many cycles/combinations to chose from and treats my clothes with care.The fact that the unit is not available with the door opening in either direction has caused me a significant issue in my laundry room. My laundry room is not small but trying to work with the depth and configuration of this model has me second guessing this purchase. Very disappointed.

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

High-Efficiency: save water, energy and the environment with High-Efficiency washers.

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.
