A few shortcomings

I've had this washer for 4 months. There is a learning curve, for sure, like washing smaller loads. Since I wash more often, I don't see how it's that energy or financially efficient. But the electronic door lock has already failed with damp clothes still in it, requiring a call for service. It's still under warranty, but the service man couldn't come for three days and in the meantime the wet clothes sat there. Second issue is that there's no quick wash cycle with this machine. If you just need to rinse a few really dirty things out before adding them to a regular load, there's no way to do it. An option called "overnight wash and dry" is a quick cycle, but then it goes on for up to 12 more hours, drying the clothes too. You have to be right there to turn the machine off after the wash cycle, so there's no leaving the house unless you don't care if it dries those few items. The buttons are really sensitive. My washer is located near a door to the outside, and if I even brush up against it, It turns on. I find the cycle labels rather small and hard to read. Larger labeling would really be nice. I'll continue to use the machine until it fails, hopefully after a long time, but I'm not sure I'd recommend it to someone else.

Love the Maytag washer dryer combo I recently purchased. Cleans well, reduces required water needed to clean clothes and is very quiet. Beautiful design!

Very good but not as good as my old Neptune

My 17 year old Neptune washer finally had bearing issues that couldn't be readily fixed so Feb 2017 I bought this washer (and new dryer). It has some lovely features (delicate setting, cold setting etc) but it has one HUGE problem: it can't handle anything remotely heavy. For example, bathroom floor rugs the old Neptune handled with ease are beyond the capability of this machine, it won't spin them dry. Ditto any regular load of wash. So while I really like this new washer and it cleans really well I have to divide up my laundry into much smaller and lighter loads. I now have to schlep my bathroom rugs to a laundromat, sigh. Really miss my old Neptune but this is a good washer.
