I purchased my Maytag Centennial washer/ dryer set in Dec 2010. It has the 'he' technology- an idealistic hoax, I mean, belief that your clothes can still be clean with less water usage. Well, for the last 5 years, I have been wearing dirty, stinky (mildew or hot dryer scented) clothes. I blamed myself. I was just too dirty to get my clothes clean. This stench put me into a downward spiral. My kids started to stink, my husband too (that's nothing new). I began to eat, I stopped working out, I started shopping online. I became a recluse... My kids tried to help- they started showering with their clothes on- using Tide as body soap and shampoo, Downy as Conditioner... They figured if they smelled like clean clothes, I start hugging them again. It worked for a time. But then they stopped showering, altogether. While my husband felt right at home, the rest of us hit bottom. The stench of our clothes put us into a deep depression. Even the dog ran away.

But then I had an epiphany... Maybe it wasn't me? Maybe it was my Maytag set? I did some research and noted I wasn't the only one with this problem!! When the realization hit me that it wasn't my fault that my clothes weren't clean, I 'broke into my happy dance'. I called my shrink and cancelled my daily appointments. All of them!! I started paying attention to my washer and realized that my clothes were half dry when removed, and it was NOT because of that ferocious spin cycle- it just never got enough water to begin with. The soap was never fully absorbed by the clothes- therefore, the dirt remained! I attached the video I titled 'Why I hate my Maytag Centennial Washer'.

The video is a continuous 2 min 27 sec to show proof of why my clothes are never clean. Do NOt buy this washer (or dryer- never dries it on the first round).

As for the future of this set... You know the fax machine moment in Office Space? I relive that moment everytime I toss a load in. I picture it in my mind what it would be like for me, the Husband and the kids to grab a bat and go to town on it. One day, when my husband finally caves, I am going to purchase a new set and move that washer to the backyard.

Have the same problem with Maytag washer. Never buy again.


My clothes come out dirtier than when they went in. Dark clothes come out with white marks, looks like soap/lack of water issue. this is the worst machine i have ever owned.

Same here! I used to use powder detergent and got the same chalky white residue marks.

I switched to liquid Tide- the soap is still there but more invisible.

Hate this washer.
