Relieved and Delighted

Pros: super cleaning results, easy to use, fun to use, terrific options for each specific load type, the steam option is awesome!, drying time cut in half, attractive
Cons: very large & high with pedestals, pull one thing out small things fall on floor, long wash cycle depending on options chosen
Model Number: MHW8000AW
"As a die-hard old fashioned top-loader user, with agitator, this was a huge leap for me. Never have owned my own new W/D, as they were always hand-me-downs or leave-behinds in the houses I've bought. Have always used top loaders, and have always been an avid "soaker," meaning I like to soak my whites in hot water and clorox, and my brights in Oxiclean and water....so leaping to a front loader was a big change for me. Have researched for probably the last 2 years, and really wanted one for the capacity. With 5 animals in the house, I need to be able to wash king size bedding weekly! The top loader was not cutting it, and was frustrating as all get out when comforters came out with dirt in the creases! But the reviews and downsides of the front loaders had me really worried, especially considering the cost! Well, decided to take the plunge on this one! Love Costco, and their extended warranties, and their customer service, so I felt "safe" that I could return this if it ended up being a nightmare. Well, one month out, many loads later, I LOVE this machine!!!! Believe it or not, whites are whiter, clothes are noticeably cleaner, everything smells better, including the laundry room itself, I can fit almost double the clothes in over what I did in the top loader, the king comforter is no problem and is the cleanest I've every smelled/seen it....it's a JOY to do laundry! I don't miss the soaking at all....don't need it! This thing gets stains out with the steam option beautifully. Drying time is half what it used to be. My washing time tends to be significantly more, but that's because I choose a lot of the extras, like super hot water, steam, so that adds to the cleaning time. But I don't mind at all....I'll try and post again months from now, to report on the longevity and consistency, but so far, I would not hesitate to buy this. And compared to some of the competitor's brands offered on Costco and elsewhere, I think this is a better set in terms of quality and reliability."

Water valve flap broke

Pros: uses little water doesn't get imbalanced loads
Cons: water valve electronics broke after 8 weeks
"We live in the mountains on our own water tank and septic system so getting this washer meant using less water resources. It did an excellent job of washing (and gentle with the clothes), used very little water compared to our old agitator style, excellent at spinning the load dry which equated to less drying time in the dryer. Washing blankets and heavy loads of towels were great as it did not get imbalanced loads as the agitator style would. I ordered the set based on a consumer review magazine as this is a major purchase.
After using for 8 weeks, when I opened the washing machine door in the morning after I ran it the previous night, the floodgates of Indiana Jones opened up into my garage (thank goodness the garage and not the house) and at least 10 gallons spilled out in the couple seconds I had it open. The washing machine was filled more than the halfway mark on the door which was not normal. After trouble shooting, it was determined that the entire cycle ran just fine (wash, rinse, spin) but after it finished, the water valve must have been slightly ajar which would let it fill slowly back into the washing tub.
Costco customer service was great - they sent both a technician out (which gave us the diagnosis of the water valve electronics) but we decided to have them send us a new machine which arrived a couple days after the technician. Keeping our fingers crossed that the new washing machine doesn't break down - I did love the machine when it worked.

A Great Value!

Pros: great design and technology, large capacity, everything you need included
Model Number: MHW8000AW
"First of all…. Thank You Costco!
After reading the reviews on other front load laundry suites, I was skeptical to say the least. We shopped around and Maytag name kept coming up when we asked which brand is the best. All of the retailers charged extra for the pedestals, washer hoses, dryer hose and dryer plug… adding another $500 to $600 to the price. So we decided to purchase from Costco, since everything that was needed for hookup was included, as well as the pedestals.
The laundry suite was delivered quickly and by professional and courteous employees.
Now for the Washer and Dryer:
This set has everything! A little intimating in the beginning since there are so many options. But once we were comfortable with the “controls”, we found the set to be outstanding. The washer is great; it makes less noise than a top load. Love the drum lights.
I really can say anything negative about the set. They both outperform our expectations.
I would recommend this set to anyone looking for a front loader. Great quality! Very competitive price!

Awesome Appliances

Pros: great height with pedestals, sanitize function on washer, large soap loader, steam function on dryer
Cons: occasional soap leak at base of washer door
"Delivery, installation and haul-away are what I would have expected from any major, in-town company. Washer - I like that you can fill the washer with enough soap for multiple loads. The Sanitize function will eliminate the stink from kitchen wash cloths and I use it for pet bedding. Occasionally there is a soap leak at the bottom of the opening when I open the tub. Not sure if I have a leak, but it's under warranty if I ultimately decide I have a problem. Dryer - the steam function is AWESOME. Sometimes in the morning I'll realize something I want to wear is wrinkly and I'll throw it in on the Steam setting. A few minutes later I'm ready to go to work wrinkle free.
The pedestals make it much easier to load and unload laundry.

Made EXTREMELY WELL in America!

Pros: uses just the right amount of detergent, quickest full cycle time on the market, built as solid as a rock, built in ohio (go bucks)
Cons: cheesy sounding "i'm done!" tones
Model Number: MHW8000AG and MED8000AG
"Maytag Maxima, the pride of Clyde, Ohio! We bought the pair in the granite color without the pedestals. We are so-o-o-o glad we pulled the trigger on this washer and dryer! The feature set, cycle speed and efficiency are to die for. Quiet and efficient are the two hallmarks of this set. The detergent dose dispenser is a time AND money saver, too. We moved into a new house and didn't have an old set but the price includes delivery, hook-up AND haul away of your old appliances. That is a tremendous deal. Also, these are the top of the line 8000 series, not the 6000 or 7000 series that we saw in big box and local appliance stores. Thank you Costco for delivering value AND quality!"

Cleans Very Well

Pros: cleans well, quiet, large capacity, user friendly interface
Model Number: MHW8000AW
"I needed a new washer so after reading online reviews I decided go for the top of the line and order the Maytag Maxima Xl suite. The washer cleans really well. My whites came out white even without using bleach. The spin cycle is very good at extracting water so the drying time is reduced. It is also very gentle on delicates. If you need a new washer I highly recommend this set."

Great Set

Pros: cleans great, easy to use, lots of options for cleaning each load, clothes don't ball up, dryer has lots of great options
Cons: long cycles
Model Number: 8000AW
"Love the washer. I do recommend you read the manual before you use. Clothes are clean and don't ball up. Love having the auto detergent. Only use what you need and you don't have to pour the detergent for every load.
Dryer is great as well. I don't use the dryer very often, but this one is great with the steam options to refresh clothes. Clothes dry quickly

Love doing my laundry now!

Pros: the soap dispenser lasts for several loads
Cons: the fabric softener dispenser is only 1 load
"I love them so far after a month. The drawers underneath are very useful are make it so I don't have to bend over YAY. I am concerned the washer may begin to have the odor people keep telling me about, but so far nothing. Does anyone know the solution for that? I just make sure I dry the inside of the door before I shut it for the week."

Good Machine

Pros: quite machine
Cons: i did not like the soap dispensing method
Model Number: MHAW8000
"Delivered as promised, set up and installation was good. Wash cycles seem to be somewhat long but manageable. A single detergent dispenser does not come with the equipment, that is considered an accessory. What it does come with, is you fill up the dispenser for soap and it measures how much soap to use during the wash."
