Maytag Maxima XL

Posted by volan (My Page) on

My AEG washer has died and we're looking for a new set. One of my requirements is thermostatic temperature control, 30C (86F) for cold, 40C (104F) for warm and 50C (122F) for hot.

My local appliance shop is selling the new Maytag Maxima XL (6000) at an unbeatable price and I wanted to know people's thoughts on it.

According to the sales guy the machine has thermostatic control but I couldn't find any specific temperature information on Maytags website and thay haven't responded to my email (yet).

I'd appreciate any thoughts or suggestions.

Most manufacturers don't know the value themselves, I think. You'd probably have to walk into the factory yourself and ask an engineer for the programming of the washer...

FWIW, here are two tables from regarding the temperatures archived on the default setting of various cycles using an eight lbs. load.
