Awesome washer....Love it!!!
I've had this washer since early December 2011 when it first became available in the United States. It has all the features I need: narrow width, low height, controls in the front, not in the back (for a shorter reach), hot and cold water standard washer hook-ups, stainless steel tub, a bi-fold lid (because I have it right under my stacked clothes dryer and have limited vertical clearance) and most importantly an agitator.
A nice, standard washer
First off, some people have complained about J.B. Hunts delivery service, but I have to say I had zero issues with them. They called a few days ahead to actually schedule a date and time. Then they called the day of to give me a 2 hour window and were pretty spot on with that time frame. When they arrived, they were fully prepared to not only install the new washer, but to remove my old one. As I was in the middle of construction at that time, I told them we would take care of all that.
Appropriate for small spaces
The Amana 3.4 cu. ft. Top-Load Washer with Sprekle Porcelain wash basket, NTW4600YQ, White is a must have appliance because of its ability to make your job easier without any stress. It cleans well and easy to operate.
Very easily goes out of balance during spin cycle
I bought this washing machine from Home Depot 3 months ago. At first, the washing machine was very quiet and operated without any problems and just in the last 3 weeks I have been having trouble with it going out of balance during the rapid spin cycle. Sometimes I have to re-arrange the laundry several times before it can finish spinning. I would not recommend leaving this washing machine unattended because of it going out of balance.
15 different wash settings and 5 water levels
Wash your way with this GE topload washer. Its dual-action agitator makes for easy loading and a gentle yet efficient wash. And you can choose from 15 different wash settings and 5 water levels that is the perfect combination for each load. It even offers a Power Rinse option that removes the dirty water so you can be confident that your clothes are truly clean.
Basic, straightforward washer
The GE GTWN2800DWW is one of the last old-style top-load washing machines that has a center agitator and lets users select the exact water level, temperature and length for each cycle (instead of setting everything automatically). This is a basic, straightforward washer with none of the fancy settings of the modern, high-efficiency machines. It has simple dial controls; automatic bleach and fabric softener dispensers; and a spin speed of up to 630 rpm.
Least expensive front-loading washer
Analysis of our test results show that the Frigidaire Affinity FAFW3801LW is a very efficient machine. Using national averages, we calculated this washer's annual operating cost at just $28.58. The Frigidaire is also a team player. On the Normal cycle, our test loads only retained 47 percent of their weight in water, meaning that your dryer will have to expend less energy to get your clothes to wearable state.
Noisy, tinny and leaves clothes surprisingly wet
We probably wouldn't have picked this model but it came included with our new Centex home. We have been using it for a month now. It replaced our 10yr old Whirpool HE Calypso model which was much quieter. We are amazed at how noisy this machine is. It seems to do an acceptable job cleaning, but it takes a long time to do a load of wash and the locking lid is a REAL pain in the you-know-what.
Spectacularly Bad Washing Machine, Laughably Bad Customer Support
Whirlpool has created a monster with the WFC7500VW but refuses to acknowledge its shortcomings. The washer is glitchy and temperamental. It requires an extremely detailed series of steps performed in a specific order (as well as a hope and a prayer) before it will do a load of washing. It constantly throws error codes and then seems to fix itself with no intervention, leaving me with a half-washed load of soaking wet clothes. My machine died when it was three years old.
Breakdowns of various types frequently reported
The Whirlpool WFC7500VW is the most compact, and affordable front load washing machine offered by Whirlpool. The overall size of this machine is 23.5" x 33.5" x 24" (W x H x D) making this a great space saver, taking up as little floor space as possible.
However, it's internal 2.3 cu. ft. I.E.C. capacity provides plenty of room for your laundry. It can be installed under a countertop, freestanding or stacked with the matching dryer.
Good Riddance to Front Loader
This is a great washing machine! I've owned this washing machine for several months now, and I can't believe how clean it gets my laundry! It's not necessary to pretreat stains anymore, which is a real time saver; even old stains are now gone. With my front loader I pretreated everything and the stain was usually still there when the load was done.
I like the fact that it is manufactured in Wisconsin, USA!!
Unreliable electronic JUNK and horrible service
After having an ancient Maytag work-horse finally die after more than 30 years of loyal trouble-free service, I assumed that a new eco-friendly Maytag would be fantastic. How wrong I was! This is the worst washing machine I have ever experienced. It is a piece of junk! I can't imagine that Maytag is not ashamed to put its name on a machine that is so bad.
Noise reduction technology
Maytag MVWC400XW is an excellent model to serve the needs of those looking for a top-loading washer that still carries the feel of models gone by. For the most part, customers looking for a top-loader feel compelled towards them either because of space, or simply because they have grown up with and enjoyed the style their whole lives. For the latter, they will find the Maytag MVWC400XW an updated version of the classic, while still maintaining an old-fashioned feel.
Regular settings use much less water
I'm happy to see modern microprocessor technology applied to the very old problem of washing clothes. The Maytag MVWC400XW does a good job of washing, and at the same time, costs very little money to run.
I suspect that the poor product reviews are due to people not selecting the right cycle type or not pre-washing stains by hand. I'm satisfied with my purchase of the Maytag MVWC400XW.
Typical 21st Century Junk
've owned my Maytag Bravos 600x washer and dryer for four months now. I read instructions closely since this is the first time I've used a fancy HE washing machine. We chose a top loader because of all the bad reviews on front loaders. Oh how I long for my old time traditional agitator-style machine! I'm not impressed with this washer. There is no way I'm saving energy on my laundry because I have re-wash my exercise clothes because they still smell after one wash.
Worst Washing Machine Ever...If you can even call it a "washing"
This washing machine was the biggest waste of money. It does not provide enough water to even completely cover the clothes. My nice black slacks come out of this washer covered in white soap spots...I use the HE detergent as directed. Those same black slacks came out with the hem ripped twice. The Cabrio wraps clothes around and twists them very tightly. I supposed if you bought a brand new pair of jeans and wanted the "destroyed" look then this washer is for you.
