Retailers have the legal right to set their own prices, but some manufacturers place restrictions on how those prices may be communicated. Because our price on this item is lower than the manufacturer's “minimum advertised price,” the manufacturer does not allow us to show you our price until you place the item in your cart, or in some cases, proceeding to the final checkout stage.

MHW5500FC 27" Energy Star, ADA Compliant Front Load Washer with 4.5 cu. ft. capacity, Power Wash System, Fresh Hold Option, Steam Clean and Sanitize Cycle: Metallic Slate is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 767.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love Fresh Hold There are too many amazing features to list in this review. First off I love the musical sounds that each turn of the dial make, adds to the experience. I love the range of cycles and my favorite feature is the Fresh Hold option that keeps air flowing through the drum when the cycle ends. I have a toddler who does not always allow me to get the clothes to the dryer right when the cycle ends but this feature doesn't let them start to smell. The only disadvantage to the machine is the end cycle sound is pretty soft and I can't hear it at all when it's done because it's in the basement. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super Saver - Time, Energy, and Water We are so impressed with our new Maytag Washer and Dryer. We replaced a year old Samsung that was recalled after many units exploded and injured people. Our new Maytag combo is great. My wife was convinced that there was not enough water in the machine until she saw how clean the clothes came out. And it spins them so well that they're nearly dry. That saves on dryer time. Regarding that, the dryer moves much more air through with less heat. In theory, less heat would take longer, but it is very quick given that the washer spins them so well and because there is so much air moving through the dryer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from What a great washing machine. I owned a Maytag Neptune before purchasing this one which was 20 years old. I was going to go with another brand but decided to stick with Maytag. I read the reviews on this one and decided to go with it. This is amazing. Nice and quiet, comes with many features, washes really well and rinses almost as if the clothes are dry when they come out. I do about 16 loads a week so I need a high quality and good working machine and I found it when I purchased this. It is the next step to a commercial machine. Love it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Brilliant choice by far We bought these about 2 months ago. We had it narrowed down to the Maytag, LG, and Samsung. After the problems Samsung has been having, and thinking we would really like the fresh hold option, we went with the Maytags. Brilliant choice by far! The Fresh Hold option is totally designed for the busy family. Our set is in the basement, and I can't tell you how many times we would start a wash, then forget. No more rewashing loads of laundry. And the cleanliness of the clothes is far superior to anything else we have experienced. Well done Maytag! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 3 out of 5 by from OK, nothing special We bought our washer and dryer over Thanksgiving 2016. We researched consumer reports and sales reps at several stores to see what they thought. Ultimately settled on the Maytag as that is what I had previous and it lasted over 14 yrs. So far it is working well, but to me it seems noisy when it is spinning. One of the reasons I chose this machine is that it was suppose to be ultra quiet. I have been very diligent about only adding a small amount of detergent as suggested in booklet and I feel my clothes are clean but they are not soft despite use of fabric softener. One last item, too easy to brush against and turn on lights on display panel. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So Far...Excellent!! I recently purchased this machine to replace another popular brand that quit after less than 2 years...And I am more than happy! This one is made in the USA and you can even add a garment once the cycle has started! It also has many other great features than all the major front loads have. And the clothes come very clean. There has been an issue with the Tide pods not dissolving if I don't have a full load. For some reason they end up on the rubber out by the door, so if I have a small load I use liquid pods and everything is fine. I think it's safe to say this one will last more than 2 years!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love Maytag I have only had this washer two weeks so my experience with it is limited but I can see a difference in our clothes already. I had a Maytag years ago but when it was time to get a new washer, I went with a different brand, a top loader. Our clothes became so dingy and it just couldn't handle heavy bedding. Even though it was still working fine, I convinced my husband to buy a new washer, and I went back to Maytag front loader. Our clothes are already looking brighter. The only complaint I have is that the door couldn't be reversed to make it easier to load the dryer, but given the choice, I'll take my Maytag! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Very loud I bought the washer about a month ago and appreciate all the features EXCEPT it is very loud when pumping the water. We did contact Maytag and they sent a local technician to look at the washer. The company was Flamingo Factory Service in Florida. I have never met anyone with such a bad attitude and lack of knowledge of how the pump works. He just said that the noise is normal and laughed at my face. This company does harm Maytag's good reputation. Please avoid. I am giving the washer 3 stars as my wife likes all the other features in the washer and she just closes the laundry room door when the washer is on.
