Review Summary

This is the summary of consumer reviews for Maytag Performance 3.9 cu ft High-Efficiency Front-Load Washers (White) ENERGY STAR (Model #: MHWE950WW). The BoolPool rating for this product is Good, with 3.30 stars, and the price range is $900-$1050.

The Maytag Performance MHWE950WW 3.9 cu ft High-Efficiency Front-Load Washer hits all the right notes from the word go. The huge drum capacity can hold and wash even a king sized mattress pad with ease! This also helps cut down the number of loads of clothes...giving you more time to play 'match your socks' game with your toddler!

This energy efficient washer reduces your detergent and water usage, so maybe those saved pennies can go toward a well-earned back massage! This product has an Oxi-Treat stain-fighting option and removes allergens with a steam sanitize cycle. Clothes (even with grease and other dirty stains) come out smelling fresh and good looking. They retain the fresh scent even after 10 hours in the washer, because it comes with a Fresh Hold option that has Dynamic Venting Technology.

This product has myriad features including steam, sanitize and 'handwash' options. The 'handwash' feature washes delicate clothes well, so you don't have to sport sore hands anymore! But customers are divided over the vibrations of the much needed spin cycle - some feel that the cycle reverberates violently and others feel it hardly makes a sound!

The biggest drawback of this front loader is that it's neither durable nor dependable as many reviewers have encountered breakdown of the tub bearing and spindle within 6 months of purchase. Users recommend using the right amount of liquid detergent (and not powder detergent) to prevent damage to the bearing or spindle.

The Maytag Performance High-Efficiency Front-Load Washer works its magic on even the grimiest garments, washes big loads of clothes effortlessly, and comes with a variety of great features. At an affordable price point, this washer is almost worth its weight in clean clothes! But, buying this Maytag product maybe a gamble due to a non-reliable product design and poor customer service.
