(More customer reviews)Maytag MVWB300WQ Bravos Series 4.7 cu. ft. Capacity Front Load Washer (White)We purchased the 4.7 unit, and also read a number of negative reports on its performance. These negative reviews basically report that clothes were ragged out, torn up or wrinkled beyond use with detergent remaining on the garments.
Yet, the Maytag Bravos is engineered to meet today's energy demands and environmental challanges. And, this innovative washer has quickly become the showroom standard of comparison, especially when compared with front loaders. We read the Maytag Bravos directions and followed them accurately, and wow, the clothes are now cleaner and brighter than before. Let's accept these negative complaints as actual happenings and see if there could have been unresolved operator errors that contributed to the owners' dissatisifactions and conclusions.
First, comments that clothes are ragged out and/or "it tore up my clothes" issues are easily corrected; just zip up the zippers and button the button clasps on top of zipper pants to prevent zippers from going on a Texas "chain-saw" massacre on your panties and bra. Everyone knows that these clothes groups are always at odds with one another, awaiting revenge. Don't think for a minute that in this "arena-sized" basket, an attack will not be awaiting the gentle crowd, when your zippers are free-roaming. (It's clearly written in the operations manual, too.)
Next, to get the wrinkles out that develop from the high speed water extraction, just shake the garments briefly before putting them into the tumble drier and the wrinkles will come out flat and fine.
Mostly, no ironing is needed if folded while still warm.
To avoid soap deposits, use only special HE detergents to avoid deposits on your clothes. It's all in the instructions you will need to review. Just pile the wash along the sides and let the unit do the work. It's 5 stars.
