About - Maytag Centennial MVWC200X[W]

The Maytag Centennial MVWC200X[W] is part of the washing machine test program at Consumer Reports. In our lab tests, top-loading washing machine models like the Centennial MVWC200X[W] are rated on multiple criteria, such as those listed below.


Washing performance:
This reflects the degree of color change to swatches of fabric that were included in an 8-pound and maximum capacity test load of mixed cotton items using the machines' most aggressive normal cycle. (We do not use special cycle or option buttons.)

Energy efficiency:
This score is based on the energy needed to heat the water for 8-pound and maximum loads using a warm wash and cold rinse. We consider both gas and electric water heaters, and include electricity needed to run the washer and energy needed for drying. Washers that extract more water are scored higher.

Water efficiency:
This score denotes how much water it took to wash our 8-pound load and each machine's maximum load. On models that didn't set the fill level automatically, we used the lowest fill setting that sufficed for the 8-pound load. We then calculated water used per pound of clothing.

Comment:
This washer washes/rinses/spins the clothes over and over again until you intercede and catch it at the end of the cycle. The repairman recalibrated the machine but it's still doing the same thing. We'll have to call him to come back and we'll waste another day waiting. All for a machine that is less than 3 months old!
How long have you owned it:
One-to-three months
Bottom Line
No, I would not recommend this to a friend.

Comment:
I bought the top-loading Centennial in Feb 2014. I'm a typical family user: 3-4 loads a week. I hate the locking mechanism, the incessant click-click-click as it senses what it wants to do. And I hate needing to put the detergent in the bottom of a dry drum and then placing my clothes on top. No-no-no. I'm totally not comfortable with seeing half of a load sitting outside of the water during the wash cycle. (You can check what's going on by 'pausing' the machine so you can lift the lid and peek inside.) The complete cycle is WAY too long. There is not one thing I like about this machine. Not a single thing.
How long have you owned it:
A month or less
Bottom Line
No, I would not recommend this to a friend.
