About - Maytag Centennial MVWC360A[W]

The Maytag Centennial MVWC360A[W] is part of the washing machine test program at Consumer Reports. In our lab tests, top-loading washing machine models like the Centennial MVWC360A[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:
THE MOST FRUSTRATING THING ABOUT THIS MACHINE IS HOW CLOTHES COME OUT DIRTY AND WITH STAINS.I'VE HAD TO WASH CLOTHES SEVERAL TIMES BEFORE THEY COME OUT CLEAN, WHICH DECEIVES THE PURPOSE OF ENERGY AND WATER EFFICIENCY.I'VE TAKEN PICTURES OF MY DIRTY STAINED CLOTHES AFTER A WASH.ALSO THE CLOTHES GET TANGLED UP BADLY.I DONT THINK MY CLOTHES WILL LAST VERY LONG WITH THIS MACHINE.I DISLIKE THIS MACHINE,BUT I CANT AFFORD ANOTHER ONE.THE THOUGHT OF SPENDING MY HARD EARN MONEY ON A PIECE OF GARBAGE MAKES ME MAD. I CANT STAND WASHING CLOTHES NOW.THIS MACHINE IS A HUGE DISSAPOINTMENT.

A more detailed user's manuel would be nice. It's a new way of washing but if you follow directions and use correct detergent, it does the job as advertised.

Three-to-six months

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.

Comment:
I had 3 weeks of dirty clothes waiting when the washer was delivered. I followed the directions and everything came out beautifully! Since then I've washed chair pads and throw rugs with great results. I had hoped to get the top rated LG model washer but the limited space in my laundry room and my limits (I'm barely 5') precluded that. Thought I would have to get another conventional machine so was delighted to find this HE washer that would fit me and my space. I would advise anyone to read the manual before using and follow the directions. Some settings and the items being washed may affect any vibrating during the spin cycle. My laundry room is on the main floor so any vibration is not noticeable. I miss not having a fabric softener dispenser but am using a Downey Ball which seems to work just fine.

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.
