Pros & Cons
The Maytag Performance Series MHWE201YW is a 3.5.cu.ft. high-efficiency and affordable Front Load Washer. This washing machine is energy efficient and also reduces water bill considerably by using less water to wash large loads of dirty laundry. It cleans the garments well and they always come out fresh and smelling good. It has 12 wash cycles including Quick and Rapid wash. It comes with the PowerWash cycle and also has a welcome feature - the Rinse and Refresh cycle.
This product boasts a large capacity wash drum that can easily wash large loads and bulky items (got a king sized comforter? - bring it on!) with ease. But keep an eagle eye on your clothes for they may get snagged and torn during the cycle sometimes. Socks and smaller items may get stuck in the gasket. Some reviewers recommend keeping the door open or wiping the seal after every wash to prevent mildew and questionable odors!
As per some reviewers, this product is not very durable and reliable since it broke down after few months of usage. A few customers had technical issues with the washer within 5 months (on an average) of use. A warranty on this unit might be a good investment! Some users also complain that this machine doesn't balance itself on the final spin and vibrates a lot thus making it unsuitable for 2nd floor installations.
Overall, the Maytag Performance Series MHWE201YW High-Efficiency Front Load Washer has a great price point and provides good value for the money. It is energy efficient and environment friendly but may not be that reliable in long run.
