Bravos Washer & Dryer - Complaint
ISLAND LAKE, ILLINOIS -- I recently purchased the Maytag Bravos Washer & Dryer pair for our new house, after owning a Kenmore set for 16 years & leaving it behind, still in perfect working condition after only 1 repair between them both. The Maytag washer has a very large tub with no agitator but because the clothes just sit in there, the tend to get extremely tangled, especially jeans and long pants. Every item has to be shaken out before putting it in the dryer, otherwise they end up all twisted, wrinkled and only partially dry. The washer definitely uses a lot less water than a conventional top load, but the clothes are a mess when they come out. The dryer has several "level of dryness" settings, but when "normal" is selected, clothes & especially towels are still damp when the cycle ends. The only higher setting is "more dry" which seems to be over drying & fading the clothes, but if it's not chosen then everything is still damp when it's done. Lastly, the lint filter is poorly located on the top of the dryer itself, which causes major amounts of dust/fuzz to spill out onto the dryer top every time it's cleaned (each load).
We chose the black color, which was not a great choice due to the lint filter location, as the top of the dryer is always dusty.
