Overall, feels well-built and performs well. It's very quiet for much of the cycle, unless it's draining or spinning. Even when spinning it's farily stable, even with large loads. The clothes spin out well, and the cycles aren't excessively long relative to comparable reviews I've read for others.

I bought this after several unsuccessful attempts to repair my HE top loader which was only 4 years old, and I will update the review of that machine separately. This Maytag front loader is noticeably quieter and much more efficient in water and electricity usage.

Rated by Consumer Reports as "Recommended". I was not in a hurry for it to arrive, so I chose to buy it through Goedekers. The washer price was great. The setup was easy. The washer is cleaning well, using less water, is incredibly quiet and living up to the hype.

At first the controls seemed complex, but in practice operation is very simple. I mostly use normal wash, but occasionally change a setting for a special load. No leaks, very quiet and little vibration. I have done quite large loads with no problems. The detergent dispenser is very convenient.

I am very pleased with my new Maytag HE washer! Some previous reviews mentioned it was noisy during the spin cycle but mine is quiet. Loads take longer but I like the end result. Haven't used all the features yet and have no idea whether it will be reliable but my first impression is good!

Not as happy with Maytag right now. the washer is fine, louder than i would like. I expected a better quality product from Maytag. Since the dryer i purchased at the same time only lasted for 1 load of laundry i am hesitant about the washer as well. seems to be okay

Consumer Report top pick and they were correct. Very quiet, appears to be extremely efficient and our first front loader. We are very pleased with this purchase and the installation team was knowledgeable and very professional. The wife loves it and that says it all.

We've had this washing machine for almost 2 months. Love how it cleans, efficient, lots of cleaning options, quiet. American-made quality supporting American workers. Based on other buyers comments, we wipe down the rubber seal, leave the door open after washing to let it dry out, and so far all is...
