- Maytag Bravos X MVWX700XW
- This Bravos is at its best on the normal cycle, able to lift stains with a minimum of water use. Otherwise, it's highly inefficient.
Maytag Bravos X Washing Machine ReviewWasher $749.00
In a year's worth of a variety of washes, we calculated that the Maytag Bravos X MVWX700XW will use about 51.53 kWh of electricity.
Seventy three gallons. That's how much hot and cold water the Maytag Bravos X MVWX700XW uses on an allergen wash. Other specialty cycles are similarly thirsty: 49 gallons for a bulky wash, 40 gallons for a delicates wash.
The normal wash is, thankfully, the exception to this rule, using only about 12 gallons of water per cycle.
Cost Per Wash
If you're running specialty cycles, it'll cost you: 57 cents for an allergen wash, 34 cents for a bulky wash. The normal cycle only costs 7 cents per cycle, however.
Yearly Running Cost
Running a variety of cycles for a year will cost about $58. Top-loaders tend to be expensive, but that's extremely high for any washer we've ever tested -- more that twice the cost of some front-loaders. If you're debating between this and a similarly priced front-loader, keep in mind that the more efficient washer could save you $100 in four years of ownership.
