But with its large load capacity, dependable quality, and some user-friendly features, it's no surprise that it comes with a big price tag.

Not only does this washer have a huge volume capacity of 4.4 cubic feet, but it is also a side-loading washer, which means that it is designed to conserve water and energy. As a front-loading machine, it helps to conserve resources by using less water and allowing gravity to do some of the work.

Aside from the front-loading washer design, this washer is also highly efficient because of its large load capacity. With 4.4 cubic feet of load capacity, this washer can handle huge laundry loads. Larger laundry loads means that users can run fewer loads at higher capacities, which ultimately helps to decrease water and energy use, lowering the utility bills as well.

Washer Highlights

Interior highlights

  • The Sensi-Care Wash System is designed to give clothes a thorough yet gentle wash. Before the water and detergent is dispersed to the clothes, the washer mixes the water with the laundry products, then gently sprays the water from above. This results in an even distribution of water and laundry products.
  • With the Smooth Balance System, users won't have to worry about this washer causing too much noise, movement, or vibrations. A total of six springs are used to minimize vibration and movement during the washer's operation.
  • steaming unit - The built-in Steam Clean unit helps in removing even the toughest stains from clothes. Also, the high temperatures used in the Steam Clean settings aid in removing allergens and dust mites, which, in effect, acts as a sanitizer for clothes.
  • The auto level water feature is another handy feature for increased efficiency. Sensors are used to gather information on the load composition, load size, and the level of suds. The washer processes this information and adjusts the water level to provide the most effective and efficient wash cycle, no matter what the load size.

    Exterior highlights

  • With the Oxi/Color-Safe Bleach Dispenser, in combination with the Oxi Treat option, users don't need to manually add color-safe bleach or oxygen-based stain remover. All that's needed to do is place the bleach into the container, and the washer will automatically dispense the bleach.
  • Automatic Temperature Control with a Heating Element that uses sensors to evenly heat the water. Depending on the cycle type and the load type, the temperature of the water is adjusted automatically to provide the perfect water conditions for the laundry.

  • Dimension Specifications
  • Height: 38 in.
  • Width: 27 in.
  • Depth 32 in.
  • Volume capacity: 4.5 cu. ft

  • One of the biggest advantages of the Maytag MHWE900VW is its high efficiency rate. Because of its overall design and its many features, this washer needs less water and energy to operate in comparison to other types of washers. Consumers particular like the water level features, electronic sensors, and front-loading design, which are all meant to conserve resources and save them money on their electric and water bills.
  • The electronic controls and display make this washer easy to use, easy to set, and easy to understand.
  • 11 cycles, four options, five temperatures, three soil levels, and a delay start option of up to 16 hours mean consumers can set the perfect wash cycle for any load type.
  • Better drying capabilities because of its extended spin option.
  • The steam feature give users another level of cleaning and sanitation. Not too many washers in the market have a steam feature, which makes the Maytag MHWE900VW a good choice for anyone who wants the cleanest of clothes.

  • Perhaps the only disadvantage of the Maytag MHWE900VW is its big price tag. Selling for over $1,000, some consumers may not be willing to spend so much on a washer. Then again, it's important to take into consideration the huge savings they can make on utility bills, because of this washer's efficiency.
  • Another disadvantage is that the black version of this washer costs $100 more than the white version.

    Just purchased the maytag 9000 series. So far I am very impressed with the Whitest Whites cycle, the quietness of the operation, the cost, and the capacity of course. I believe the steam feature offers an unique option which I will enjoy for many years in the future. Energy and water savings alone render the top loaders obsolete! I always leave the door ajar after each use. This machine also is designed with a self clean cycle (how cool is that) addressing many of the complaints of STINK if have seen here.

    re:STINKY. If you use good quality powdered detergent with enzymes, wipe rubber around inside
    door and keep door ajar slightly after washing,
    there should not be any odor. This applies to all
    front loading machines.

    MY MACHINE STINKS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    by: N. Hastings

    I purchased a front loading washing machine, about 3 years ago.

    I am having major problems, IT STINK! I spray Lysol into the drum every time I am finished washing. I have Ashma, and I will be purchasing a new machine unles you can help with the smell.

    With the odor so strong, which has increased the last 6 months, I will be forced to get rid of the machine.

    Waiting to hear, N. Hastings (hastings1282@aol.com)
