The Maytag Epicz MHWZ600TW Washer
This has additional features as well as those listed above. It boasts four wash options, including an exclusive Maytag feature called MaxExtract Extended Spin.
This special option allows for maximum removal of excess water from the rinse cycle, which means your clothing spends a lot less time in the dryer. As a result, they'll last longer.
A 10-Hour Delay Start Option is a great feature for those who like to schedule their laundry around life, not the other way around.
This model also has a 1,000-Watt Built-in Water Heater, 5 Temperature Settings, and 10 Automatic Wash Cycles. This particular Epicz model has an NSF Certified Sanitary Cycle and comes with the QuietSeries 400 Sound Package.
This washing machine can handle larger loads such as bedding, comforters, and several towels. However, it seems to shake quite a bit until it gets to the final spin and then it seems completely balanced.
The Maytag Epicz MHWZ400TQ Washer
This comes with 2 Wash Options, including the MaxExtract Extended Spin cycle, an 8-Hour Delay Option, 4 Temperature Settings, 8 Automatic Wash Cycles, and the QuietSeries 300 Sound Package. The sound package is especially appreciated by those whose laundry area is located near the kitchen or on the other side of the bedroom wall.
The price of either washing machine is reasonable and likely to fit into most people's budget. The value of a Maytag appliance is worth the investment over time.
One disadvantage of these high-efficiency washing machines is that they require specific, brand name, concentrated detergent, especially for front-loading washers.
It tends to be a bit more expensive than regular detergent, so that could be a deterrent for some consumers when considering this style and brand of washing machine.
Both of these Epicz model washing machines come with a manufacturers full one year warranty.
These models can be conveniently located either at your local department store, or you can order one online if you prefer (shipping and handling will be an additional cost).
