Maytag recently released some new washers and dryers, which are the creme of the crop when it comes to energy efficiency and overall good looks. The only hitch is that they cost a grand each, otherwise we'd have them in our homes already.
What sets these washers and dryers apart is that they use commercial grade technology from Maytag, meaning that they can probably clean any stains that your family can create. This is assured thanks to an extra wash cycle named Powerwash. The Maxima line of washers and dryers are the front loading models, while the Bravos are the top loading ones.
That's not all. Apparently they've got some new technology, which is boringly named Fresh Hold and Dynamic Venting Technology, which leaves you up to 16 hours before you have to put a load through the dryer. Now that is a definite benefit for busy people, because you can just start a load in the morning and put it in the dryer in the evening without worrying about the funky smells.
Naturally, these top-of-the-line machines are all about energy efficiency. The Maxima washers use up to 82% less water and 84% less energy. The Maxima MHW7000X models use even less energy. The overall capacity of these washers is 5 cu. ft., which is enough for 29 towels! The Bravos washers use 70% less water and 66% less energy.
The Maxima dryers have a 7.4 cu. ft. capacity and includes sensors to detect when your load is dry. It comes with steam cycles, that allow you to almost eliminate the need for dry cleaning, except for specific fabrics. The Bravos dryers have almost identical technical features. The Maytag Maxima and Bravos washers and dryers models are listed at an MSRP of $1,299 each, but you can find them for around $1,000 online.
