Maytag Bravos XL Features – A Better Clean #MaytagMom

Maytag Bravos XL


I’ve been using my Maytag Bravos XL Washer and Dryer for a few months now.  When I first got them, I actually got excited about doing laundry. There were so many cool features and settings, the washer tub was enormous, the dryer actually dried my clothes, etc. I knew that the excitement would soon wear off and then I’d make the final decision about how well the Bravos XL worked.

But I still really like it!  I still love walking though the kids’ rooms and getting ALL of the dirty clothes to put in one load. And even after all of the loads I’ve done over the last few months, I still underestimate how much the Bravos XL can hold.  I always end up going back for a few more items because there’s still more room in the tub.

Look at this massive tub:

The Maytag Bravos XL Washer also has some great features that I really love.  There are so many cycles and features to choose from. With settings like Bulky, Sheets, Heavy Duty and Delicate, I can always make sure I’m getting my clothes the absolute cleanest possible.


Maytag Bravos XL Features


One feature that I really love is the PowerSpray.  With the Maytag Bravos XL PowerSpray Technology, the detergent is pre-mixed with water before being sprayed over and throughout the clothes. That means it immediately starts soaking into and working on stains and is evenly distributed through all of the clothes.  

With my old washer, I had to fill the tub to the “small load” setting, then add detergent and let the washer run for a little while to mix the detergent into the water. Once it was mixed in, I could add my laundry and actually start the load.  It’s so nice to have PowerSpray Technology doing all of that work for me now!

I’m finding that not only am I saving time because I can wash so much more in one load, but that I’m also saving time on drying. My old dryer seemed to either leave everything slightly damp or would over-dry my clothes and shrink them. The Bravos XL dryer has an Advanced Moisture Sensing system that makes sure that never happens. It continually checks the level of moisture in the clothes to ensure that they are completely dry without ever over-drying. And because the dryer stops when clothes are perfectly dry, it’s not running for nearly as long as my old one. I’m saving time on the dryer cycle, saving energy by not wasting it and saving clothes instead of shrinking them.

Another cool feature is the The Bravos XL’s “Clean Washer” reminder. Before this washer, I never once in my life washed my washer.  It never even occurred to me! But the Bravos XL has a great reminder right on the front that tells me when it’s time to wash it. I just run that cycle with Affresh and it helps keep my washer working with optimal performance. Just like other appliances and machines, washers and dryers need proper care and maintenance to run well. By using the Affresh Clean Wash cycle, cleaning the lint filter with every load and making sure the dryer vent is cleaned every couple of months, I’ll be keeping my awesome new Bravos XL appliances in tip-top shape.

So tell the truth…do you love doing laundry?  What do you wish your washer and dryer would do?

I wrote this post participating in an Maytag Moms Dependable Laundry Ambassador program by Mom Central Consulting on behalf of Maytag. I was provided with the Maytag washer and dryer set to facilitate my post.



  1. Wow lots of great features and cycles! Thanks for sharing.

  2. That washing machine is great. I so need a new one. Mine keeps jamming up.

  3. I actually do love doing laundry, but that’s mainly because I have everything set up exactly how I want it, and it gives me a break from the kids…even if it’s only for 5 to 10 minutes at a time. I’ve been thinking about looking into getting a new washer and dryer, I’ll keep this one in mind when I’m shopping around!
