GEts clothes clean

This washer cleans clothes well although the steam stain removal works best when the stain if pretreated. The washer does have a design flaw. The detergent starts running into the washer door as soon as it is in the dispenser. If you remove the dispenser compartments from the pull out drawer, you can see the opening that causes this. The fix is to turn the washer on and select the settings. Add fabric softener, if using, then add the detergent. Start the washer and then push the detergent dispenser in. This will keep most of the detergent in the wash and only requires a dispenser that is about 2/3 full.

I own this model nothing but problems and no service wow

After extensive research and the inability to obtain the MHW8200FW, which was our first choice, we decided to go with the MHW5500FW. Turns out all our trepidation was really much ado about nothing. We were most concerned about noise and vibrations, since our laundry room is on the 2nd floor above our living room and our prior machine, a Kenmore Elite would shake and be heard while downstairs. I finally decided to take the chance with this model and forget about the naysayers, a very small minority, who did write reviews citing their unhappiness with noise. Bottom line, the machine is quiet, no vibrations felt downstairs and a normal load takes 47 minutes (another concern where people would speak of very long cycle time). The settings I have used - normal, cold, delicate and bedding, all have worked as described. It is lovely to have a light in the tub, and just know that the light goes off after a few minutes when leaving the door ajar to dry the machine. We also decided on Maytag due to 2 conversations with appliance repair people about their issues with repairing LG and Samsung. Overall, we are very happy with this purchase, and I strongly advise to shop loca. That allowed us to have very qualified professionals install our machine, upgrade the hoses to stainless braided, match the price of big box stores, take away the old for free and just be accessible and knowledgeable with their years of expertise.

Great improvement

I have this washer for over a month now and it is a great improvement from the 10 yr old front loader I replaced. It is quiet, vibration is minimal, cleans clothes well. The interior light is a nice feature and the fresh hold option I use to dry out the machine when I am done washing for the day ( I leave door open also when I turn the fresh hold off.) Overall, I am very happy with the machine and I hope it continues to perform as it has so far.
