Whirlpool Washer vs Maytag – WFW92HEFW

Written by Appliance Dude | June 30th, 2017

A Maytag washer holds the top position in the 2017 consumer reports ratings, but there is a Whirlpool washer which is right on its coattails.

Whirlpool washer vs Maytag…which direction should you go in?

If you are looking for a washer, or washer and dryer upgrade and you want front loaders, buy the Whirlpool WFW92HEFW washer and its accompanying dryer.

I am going to create a direct comparison between the Maytag mhw8200 and the Whirlpool wfw92hefw

Whirlpool WFW92HEFW

The Whirlpool WFW92HEFW and it’s dryer mate are being sold at extremely low prices this 4th of July

Maytag and Whirlpool Washer Similarities
Both are 4.5 cu ft.
Both are Energy Star Certified
Both spin at 1200 RPMS – this will shorten your dry times and help you save energy
Both have 1 year comprehensive warranties
Both have fan systems which pump fresh air into washer, thus minimizing mildew

Maytag and Whirlpool Washer Differences
Whirlpool has one more cycle, listed below:

Maytag
• Allergen
• Bedding
• Clean Washer With Affresh
• Cold Wash
• Delicates
• Drain & Spin
• Normal
• Overnight Wash & Dry (12hr)
• Powerwash®
• Sanitize
• Wrinkle Control

Whirlpool
• Normal
• Cold Wash
• Delicates
• Heavy Duty
• Clean Washer with affresh
• Drain & Spin
• Quick Wash
• Sanitize
• Whites
• Towels
• Color Last
• Wash & Dry

Whirlpool has 2 more temperature settings
Whirlpool allows for ADA height

The biggest advantage for the Whirlpool washer vs Maytag is that it is built with commercial components and it has a 10 year warranty on the motor. The Maytag also has the overnight wash setting but considering that the Whirlpool has their version of Maytag’s Fresh Hold fan system, the Whirlpool can probably handle an overnight load as well.

So with the products so close in their feature sets, and since they are owned by the same company, which should you choose?
With the current 4th of July promotion, the answer is clearly the Whirlpool WFW92HEFW. You can currently get the Whirlpool washer and dryer for $1499 (a steal!) plus you can also get a rebate if you purchase pedastels as well. The Maytah 8200’s are over $2000 as a pair…so with a price difference of over $500 the answer is clear…jump into the Whirlpool!

What Should You Buy? Top Load Washer (HE) vs. Front Load Washer

Working out the kinks with the vids!

People are really starting to move to the top load washer/dryer pairs.
Prices are right, capacity is growing and no mildew.

For those inquiring, prices can range from the mid $600’s all the way up to $1700 for the new Whirlpool set with USB ports.
