Rated 5 out of 5 by from So far so good! I've only had the washer for about a month, so I can't speak to it's durability, but so far it's worked as well as I could have hoped. It's quiet, cleans clothes well, and leaves clothes extremely dry due to its incredibly fast spin cycle.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Washer so far We moved our laundry room to the 2nd floor next to the bedrooms. This is a very quit machine but is a performer. It accelerates to wring out almost every drop out of the clothes. We only have to put the clothes thru one dryer cycle to get dry including jeans and heavy towels. Have yet to use all the features but am very satisfied. The technology is so much more advanced now. I especially like the auto detergent loader. We only have to add detergent every 10 loads. This models was expensive but thru Costco was affordable. Our previous washer was a Sears top of the line front loader that had lasted 10 years. We expected it to last much longer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This Machine was a pleasant surprise! I love my new Washer! Not only is it quiet, gorgeous and has more features than any one home needs, it performs beautifully. My very favorite feature is the pre-loading soap container. Not only do I not have to worry about loading soap, but for the first time I am using the appropriate amount of soap and my clothes are just as clean but so much fresher! Towels no longer have that dingy smell. Also, I washed my comforter at home for the first time ever! It fit! The capacity is impressive. Thank you for making such a superior product! My husband built a platform above my machines in the same shade of grey and honestly they look super classy!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great cleaning; occassionally frustrating controls This washer cleans exceptionally well. Capacity is decent. The spin cycle is so strong and drains so much water that it takes much less time to dry clothes than I am used to. Some of the controls are a little frustrating. In some cycles (like delicate) the machine limits the extent to which you can change other options like temperature. You are also supposed to leave the door of the washer open when you are not using it to help prevent mold growth. With a toddler in the house, I would love to see Maytag include a device that could be used to prevent the door from closing to prevent accidents until I want to use the washer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Happy to have this washer I've had this machine for a little over two months. The one I replaced was 14 years old, so washers had changed in that time! The features I like best are that it senses the correct amount of water and detergent for each load (and it is great to not have to drag out the detergent for every load with the automatic dispenser). I know this has already saved quite a bit of detergent and water. It is also quieter than my old machine by a magnitude. It is a great improvement to be able to choose the strength of the spin cycle. The only flaw I have so far found is that it occasionally neglects to dispense the liquid softener.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Machine, American Made With 3 hockey players in the house, and non-stop laundry, it was a bad joke when our Kenmore washer died in October 2013. After researching and even calling Maytag to find out more about the Maytag Maxima XL, I was sold. I wanted something made in America, and Maytag was one of the only manufacturers that fits this requirement. Since we had it delivered and installed, the Maxima XL has lived up to its name. We always have load running, and the Maxima keeps up. The hockey gear comes out clean, thanks to the steam feature. My sheets and towels dry in half the time, thanks to the amazingly quiet spin speed. This machine really is a work horse and keeps up with a family of 6.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good choice I am happy with our choice of this washer. I love the automated detergent dispenser. Overall it is great. I have two complaints. First, is that the cold water cycle takes a long time. When you add an extra rinse the time is 1:49. A long time for a wash. So, I am learning to adapt. The washer (and dryer) both come on automatically when you open the door and it makes a loud beep. I put my work out clothes in the washer and then wait for more so I have a full load. So, when I open the door to put them in, I have to turn off the washer until I get a full load. I don't know if there is a way to disable this feature.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent but needs a service call I love everything about this washer - it cleans well, it's gentle on my clothes, and it's quiet, except for the spinning at the end to extract water - but that's still less noisy than my old top-loader. It uses less water than the old one; the water extraction at the end means my drying time is a lot less. The only complaint is the the specialty cycles don't work. I've only tried "bedding' and "overnight wash and dry", but on both of these I get an error code after the first couple of minutes, so I give up and just use the "normal" setting. Probably a service call would fix it, I just haven't done that yet.
