About - Maytag Centennial MVWC350A[W]

The Maytag Centennial MVWC350A[W] is part of the washing machine test program at Consumer Reports. In our lab tests, top-loading washing machine models like the Centennial MVWC350A[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:
It's my own fault. I should have read the reviews first. After using a great washer for 24 years, it did not occur to me that another washer that looked the same would not be the same. Cannot rinse with warm and I have a load that requires it, resulting in having to stop the machine and rewash as the rinse cycle and standing over it to stop it again at the right moment. No basket to trap any lint or hairs in the wash water which are deposited back onto the clothing. Slow, slow, slow. Takes twice as long to do any load with much grunting and weird noises. That's after it's taken 3 times longer to fill. I didn't mind washday in the past. Now it's a nightmare!!

Comment:
The model 33452 is new this fall. Bought one at Sears and when it was delivered we discovered the plastic inlet valve was broken. Two days later the second model delivered also had a broken water inlet. Two machines with the same defect indicates a manufacturing problem. We had Sears take it back and will try a Whirlpool model.
