Awesome! I ordered a washer/dryer pair $400 less than best price I could find at retail store. PLUS, the color we wanted and newer model washer. They both work GREAT! Thanks again Appliances Connection.

Terrible Disappointment

By  from Troy, MI  Verified Owner
Overall Rating: ☆☆☆☆☆ ★★★★★ 1

I bought this for my new home and moved in August of 2016. So far, we have never been able to get our clothes as clean as our old LG washer did. The cycle completes with the clothes still soaking wet. The matching dryer is mediocre at best when compared to our old LG dryer. I bought the LG pair as the middle of the line models with the knowledge that I would be moving within 5 years, and did not want to move the pair to the new home. The Maytag's soap dispenser is probably the most epic failure we have seen. If you put in a full load of clothes, it uses maybe 3ml. of detergent and the water is never hot even when selecting hot water and or the Steam feature. Had complained to the store, and they called Maytag for a service call. All the service man was able to tell me is that he ran the diagnostics, and it indicates that the machine is operating to the design specifications. That tells me the design specifications were obviously the problem, and some engineer who designed it managed to get it passed their bosses at Maytag/Whirlpool. If I tried to pass this type of work to my superiors, I would be shown the door out! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

I just redid my laundry room and am very pleased with my new appliances. I love the soap dispensing cartridge so I don't have to add detergent with every load. I am very happy with my purchase. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Great Washer

By  from Montreal  Verified Owner
Overall Rating: ☆☆☆☆☆ ★★★★★ 4

I bought this a year ago because of it's size. I love the fact that it fits so many clothes at once. However, I did notice that it does clean my white table cloths as much as it should. I've had to throw 2 of them away because the stains don't come off, which is odd because I've had these table cloths for 18 years. I'm not sure what's up with that. Everything else is great.
