Maytag MHW3505FW

The Maytag MHW3505FW front-load washer balances an affordable price with premium features. The 4.3-cu.-ft. washer features a Sanitize cycle and steam, both of which make it a good fit for families, and super-low sale prices mean you can get both this washer and its matching dryer for under $1,100. Even better: Our tests show this Maytag does a good job cleaning clothes, and it won't run up your utility bills, either.

Maytag MVWB955FW

The Maytag MVWB955 is what happens when washing machine companies get into a size war. The 955 is Maytag's ringer, coming in at 6.2 cu. ft.–easily able to hold an entire family's laundry. But an immense capacity is not the only thing that Maytag is bringing. The 955 also packs a punch, utilizing Maytag's famed PowerWash system, one of the most powerful on the market.

Maytag Bravos MVWX655DW

While other appliances are stuffed with extraneous bells and whistles, the Bravos MVWX655DW provides a straightforward user experience and powerful cleaning capability, all at a very low price. It's not super efficient, but then most top-loaders aren't. If you're okay with minimal frills—like soft-close hinges and a PowerWash cycle—and don't have high utility costs, this machine should capably handle all of your needs.

Maytag Bravos XL Series MVWB855DW

Need to do a lot of laundry? The Maytag MVWB855DW is worth a look. This titan of a washer boasts a massive 5.3-cu.-ft. drum, which can fit bulky sheets and comforters as well as everyday messes. But it's not all about size: In our tests, this Maytag removed stains just as well as similarly priced machines with smaller drums. High-end touches, a Made in USA badge, and a long warranty also set it apart from the pack.
