Bring the hardest working helper home with a Maytag appliance. Maytag recognizes a smooth operating home relies on long-last appliances that work just as hard as you do, from a refrigerator runs longer and a dishwasher that takes the work off your plate, to a washer that gives dirty clothes a kick in the pants. At the heart of every Maytag appliance is the craftsmanship and dependability you expect from American-made products.

Maytag washers and dryers ensure your clothes come out fresh and clean and ready to wear. Need a more concentrated clean? Simply touch the Deep Fill Option button on top load washers, like the Maytag 4.7 Cu. Ft. High-Efficiency Top Load Washer, for a maximum fill in the largest capacity tub on the market. The PowerWash® agitator then adds extra cleaning action along with heated water to remove difficult stains. Maytag front load washers, like the Maytag MAXIMA® 4.5 Cu. Ft. Front Load Steam Washer, features the Fresh Hold® option designed for intermittent tumbling so your clothes stay smelling fresh for up to 12 hours. Advanced Moisture Sensing ensures clothes come out perfectly dry without ever overheating thanks to advanced sensors that detect moisture levels and stop the cycle the moment clothes are dried.

Protect your kitchen appliances from germs and messes with an advanced smudge-proof finish. Even if you don’t have a chance to wipe them down, your appliances stay just as stunning as ever thanks to Maytag’s fingerprint-resistant stainless steel that defends against smudges and makes it super easy to clean up any messes, found on select Maytag appliances. Your dishes will look just as stunning thanks to the high-pressure spray jets of Maytag’s PowerBlast™ Cycle found in models like the Maytag Fully Integrated Dishwasher. The PowerDry option ensures every dish comes out completely dry and ready to use.

New front load washer does not handle bulky bathroom mats. The Machine locks up in the spin cycle. Local dealer was very timely and sent out a repair person to evaluate. Said this is the design of the system BUT also the washer machine water pump is not draining correctly. They have sent for replacement part. We have always had Maytag because they are so reliable...THIS new machine is a problem right out of the box. Not sure if this is a lemon or has Maytag slipped in design and quality...we will see.
