Pros: Quiet, energy efficient, large capacity, digital controls, easy to use
Cons: Not a single one
I had a Maytag for 20 years, then got a Whirlpool and had tons of problems...went back to this Maytag Bravo 4 months ago and I love this washer more than any I have ever had. I love the digital controls and it's so quiet and does a great job. Don't have to mess with setting the load size (it's automatic) and no wringer to work around. It is definitely easy to use and you don't have to deal with the clothes becoming unbalanced. Even the alarm letting you know when it is finished is not annoying like my past washers and one of my favorite features about the Maytag Bravo is being able to read the digital readout letting me know how much time before it is finished. I bought all the warranties offered, but suspect I won't need them. Just had so many problems with the Whirlpool washer, I was gun shy when I bought the Maytag Bravo. Not a single problem as of yet. My son and daughter-in-law stayed with me for 3 months while house hunting and she says she is spoiled by using my washer and hates going back to her old washer. She is already in the process of buying one as they just moved into their new house yesterday. I know it is a little pricey, but well worth it to me.
