Product Overview

Battle stubborn stains with this Maytag front-load washer and its PowerWash® system. The heavy-duty cycle uses an internal heater to lift away stubborn stains, and its cleaning power can be boosted with steam. Thanks to Fresh Hold®, you can load the laundry and then forget it until you're ready to unload, as the washing machine will keep clothing fresh inside for up to 12 hours after cleaning.

Key Features:

  • PowerWash System
  • Fresh Hold Option
  • Steam for Stains Option

PowerWash System
The PowerWash system features the extra cleaning action of the PowerWash cycle and an internal heater.

Fresh Hold Option
The Fresh Hold option keeps clean clothes smelling fresh in the washer with an internal fan and intermittent tumbling that circulate air through clothes for up to 12 hours after the wash cycle ends.

Steam for Stains Options
This option uses a combination of water temperature and steam to provide the optimal environment for detergent enzymes to work on removing organic stains.
