Guide Review - Maytag Top Load Washer Model Performa PAVT2448WW Review
The rating was downgraded slightly due to the bleach dispenser, which seems to leave a small trace of bleach, which is released into the following load. To combat this, she has had to ensure that the next load can handle this small discharge, without any harm to the wash items.
Regardless, she is still pleased with this product and the retail price.
Update May 2010
This washer is still performing well months later; there have been no problems with it.
