Features vary between washers, but Maytag washers often have three water level sensors to prevent excessive water usage, reports Maytag. Other features include the DependableClean wash system, four water temperature settings and the QuietSeries noise reduction system.
Upper level Maytag washers can have up to nine different washing settings, including pre treatments and delicates. These washers also have automatic temperature control, but they also have four manual water settings. The spin cycles can be programmed with three spin and wash combinations. The LoadFlex agitator is available in more expensive models, and it rotates 100 degrees to wash and rinse clothing efficiently. The agitator is suspended with the Smooth Balance suspension system, and washer noises are dampened using the QuietSeries sound package. These washers are controlled by a metallic styled panel with rotary knobs. Most models are crafted from steel colored with powdercoat. The interior wash baskets are crafted of porcelain on steel, while the washer's legs are zinc coated. All washers come with standard interior lighting and an end of cycle alarm system.
Some washers feature the PowerWash and PowerSpray system, which uses steam power and extended wash cycles to fight stains and bacteria. Other upscale washing features are the Allergen Cycle and the Optimal Dose Dispenser. All models come standard with bleach and fabric softener dispensers.
