Looking for better results while using less? The new Maytag Maxima washer (Model MHW9000X) features a PowerWash system designed to take out tough stains and use less detergent. By incorporating Optimal Dispense, which injects detergent intermittently throughout the washer’s fill time, and PowerSpray, which sprays the detergent solution evenly on the washer’s contents, it leaves laundry clean and fresh. Once the Optimal Dispense compartment is loaded with detergent—it can hold enough for 36 loads—an LCD display will prompt the user to choose the detergent concentration level, and the Maxima will determine how much and when to inject detergent into the washer. To help keep clothes wrinkle free, the Fresh Hold option allows laundry to wait for up to 16 hours after the wash cycle is finished to be loaded into the dryer. The washer uses about 11.5 gallons of water per load and can be paired with the 7.4-cu.-ft capacity Maxima EcoConserve dryer (ME/GD9000X).
