Review Summary

This is the summary of consumer reviews for Maytag Bravos 3.6 cu ft High-Efficiency Top-Load Washer (White) ENERGY STAR (Model: MVWX500XW). The BoolPool rating for this product is Good, with 3.90 stars, and the price range is $585-$625.

Maytag MVWX500XW Bravos X is a 3.6 cu ft High-Efficiency Top-Load Washer with a low water wash system. This large capacity washer features low water wash with EcoConserve, which uses 70 percent less water and energy. It also boasts plenty of cleaning power, with 8 automatic cycles and 3 temperature settings to give lot of options. The QuietSeries Sound Package advanced vibration control keeps the washer quiet.

Maytag's IntelliClean Impeller wash system comes with a wash plate that continuously moves clothes through the water to clean more gently than a traditional agitator, and takes up less space to maximize capacity. This ENERGY STAR qualified model is liked by many users because it cleans clothes very well. A spin speed of up to 800 RPM at the end of the wash cycle removes more moisture from the load, resulting in faster drying.

Some users do not like long wash cycles on this washer because they put a lot of stress on clothes and can damage them. Also, the fast spin cycles leave the clothes wrinkled. There were some cases where spin cycle stopped working or the machine became unbalanced during spin cycles. Like some other washers, this Maytag washer also leaves residues on clothes when powder detergent is used for laundry.

Overall, Maytag Bravos 3.6 cu ft High-Efficiency Top-Load Washer (White) ENERGY STAR (Model: MVWX500XW), is an energy efficient machine which washes and rinses clothes very well. It gets good ratings from the users and provides a good value for its price.
