THE MOST POWERFUL CLEANING JUST GOT STRONGER
1
POWERWASH ™ CYCLE
Extra cleaning action and a thorough rinse power
out tough stains like wine and ground-in dirt.
The built-in water heater delivers increased wash
temperatures to ensure better soil and stain
removal. Learn more on the opposite page.
2
POWERSPRAY TECHNOLOGY
EXCLUSIVE
This exclusive technology ensures even detergent
distribution for enhanced cleaning performance.
Detergent solution is sprayed directly onto clothes
to instantly start cleaning soils and stains. The
spray penetrates deep into fabric fibers to pull out
dirt without foaming. See page 4 for details.
3
OPTIMAL DOSE DISPENSER
The Optimal Dose dispenser injects detergent in the correct
amounts intermittently throughout the fill time. This provides
significantly better cleaning performance while using
less detergent. In fact, this smart dispensing system uses
nearly 10% less HE detergent, and holds up to 36 loads
of detergent.** See how this dispenser works on page 5.
2
NOTE: Not all features are available on all models.
*Among leading competitive brand front load washers; comparable cycles and settings. **Based on 6X concentration of HE detergent.
The PowerWash™ cycle alone wipes out messes from ground-in dirt to set-in soils. This mighty
cycle uses a triple-threat method to tackle the dirtiest loads. It’s just another way Maytag brand
is delivering the dependable cleaning performance your customers can count on.
THE INDUSTRY
**
HOW POWERWASH CYCLE WORKS
™
EXTRA CLEANING ACTION
An extended wash sequence continuously moves the detergent
solution through clothes to loosen stains and ground-in dirt.
ENHANCED STAIN REMOVAL
Using the built-in water heater, higher temperatures
are reached to fight difficult stains. Detergent is more
effective and stubborn soils are penetrated when
warmer temperatures are used. On select models steam
provides an enhanced level of cleaning performance.
BEFORE
THOROUGH RINSE
After the wash part of the cycle, a thorough
rinse of clean water flushes out any remaining
detergent or lingering soils.
AFTER
ASK
TELL
SELL
• How often do you wish you had advanced
cleaning that powers away stains and
removes the need to pretreat?
• How frequently do you think you’ve
added too much detergent?
• What pre-treating products are
you longing to get rid of?
The PowerWash ™ system gives the cleaning
performance of the PowerWash ™ cycle
combined with PowerSpray technology and
the Optimal Dose dispenser. A three-fold
system like this helps remove the need to
pretreat. Plus, the Optimal Dose dispenser
lets customers pour several doses of
detergent in so they aren’t constantly refilling
every time they wash a load.
Available on model:
MHW9000Y
3
Just when you thought the PowerWash™ cycle couldn’t get any stronger, we added PowerSpray
technology in our Maxima™ 9000 series washer to impact difficult-to-remove stains. Detergent is
sprayed directly onto clothes to instantly start cleaning soils and stains at the beginning of the cycle.
BLAST
DIRT
AWAY
with PowerSpray technology
POWERSPRAY TECHNOLOGY IN ACTION
EXCLUSIVE
DETERGENT MIXES
PowerSpray technology is connected to Optimal Dose
dispensing to ensure optimal cleaning benefits every
time. Large and heavily soiled loads use more detergent
while small and lightly soiled loads use less detergent.
CONCENTRATION IS SPRAYED
Spray application provides significantly better coverage
in comparison to traditional Direct Inject systems. The
slower application of detergent in the initial fill provides a
better distribution of the soap and water solution onto
the load, resulting in better and more uniform cleaning.
WASH ACTION INCREASES CLEANING
The concentration sprays above the load at 8 liters per
minute with a 25 PSI inlet pressure to power away stains.
The cone-shaped spray pattern covers over 50% of the
drum area. This pressurized cleaning goes into action
with every cycle to enhance the cleaning process.
THINK OF IT THIS WAY
When you turn on a hose, water flows without much force.
This is a lot like Direct Inject cleaning. But when you place
your thumb on the end and partially block the water, you create
more pressure that can help remove soils and stains more
thoroughly. Our new PowerSpray technology packs the kind
of power that can remove even the most difficult stains.
4
Thanks to the Optimal Dose dispenser, each load gets just the right amount of cleaning.
A removable cartridge holds multiple detergent doses and depending on load size and fabric,
the dispenser will inject detergent multiple times while the washer fills for peak performance.
IDEAL
TREATMENT
with the Optimal Dose dispenser
DISPENSING THE SMART WAY
SELECT DETERGENT CONCENTRATION
At first use, customers must select detergent
concentration and water hardness using the interactive
LCD screen. If another detergent concentration
is used for different loads, repeat this step.
Customers must use liquid HE detergent to activate
Optimal Dose dispensing. To use granulated HE detergent,
remove the Optimal Dose dispenser to default to Direct
Inject technology instead of PowerSpray technology.
FILL CARTRIDGE
The dispensing compartment holds up to 36 loads of
detergent.* Customers must pour detergent into a removable
detergent cartridge. This cartridge ensures that the correct
dosing is dispensed on each load. When the cartridge is
removed, cleaning automatically defaults to Direct Inject.
DETERGENT MIXES
Detergent and water mix and are dispensed at the
right time to penetrate fabrics and virtually eliminate
pretreating. Detergent is held and is not automatically
released into the basket like other systems in the market.
When detergent is low, the LCD screen displays an alert.
Press start again on the cycle to override, or refill the
dispenser and then proceed with the wash selection.

STAIN SOLUTIONS
Stubborn stains are a challenge to your customers. The Stain
Assist feature is here to offer useful suggestions that will
help keep their clothes looking bright and new by providing
information on a number of common stains and soils.
OPTIMAL DOSE DISPENSER
The LCD display allows customers to input the proper
detergent concentration and water hardness needed for the
Optimal Dose dispenser to deliver the best fabric care possible.
SPECIALTY CYCLES
This pair offers 19 specialty care cycles in both the washer and
the dryer that help your customers wash and dry those items that
they might not think of cleaning with a traditional laundry pair.

INTELLIGENCE IN THE DRYER, TOO!
CYCLE STARTUP
The display featured on this Maxima™ laundry pair
allows customers to select cycles more intelligently.
They can begin a cycle with just the touch of a button
or customize a cycle exactly to their liking.
REDUCE STATIC OPTION
Customers can choose this option from the
LCD screen. A fine mist is sprayed into the
heated dryer drum at the end of the cycle to
create steam and help reduce static in the load.
SELL THEM AS A PAIR!
Make sure customers don’t leave without purchasing
the matching dryer. Specialty cycles on the dryer
were designed to perfectly complement wash cycles,
helping your clothes get optimal cleaning.
Plus, when customers step-up to a bigger washer
capacity, they’ll need to upgrade their dryer, too! A larger
capacity dryer can help decrease dry times, more evenly
dry clothes and prevent wrinkles from setting in.

ADVANCED VIBRATION CONTROL™ PLUS
Now customers can own a washer that recalibrates to any environment, including
upper floor installation, and be assured of optimal spinning performance and vibration
control. Wash loads of nearly any size without worrying about vibration thanks to a
six-point suspension system, two ball-bearing balance rings and advanced software.
Maytag® Maxima™ washers have the best vibration control when cleaning large loads.‡
HOW IT WORKS
2
1
Two balancing rings, one in the front and the other in the back of the
wash basket include a total of 52 ball bearings. They take loads to
maximum speeds of up to 1,400 RPM while maintaining control.
Other brands use only a single ring with just 9 ball bearings!
2 The accelerometer located on the cabinet uses a microprocessor to measure
1
3
the washer’s movement. It recalibrates for every load size and monitors
continuously throughout the cycle for optimal spin speeds. If out of balance
motion is detected, the washer automatically redistributes the load.
3 An improved 6-point suspension system with MCT components is
tuned to handle even the largest loads and fastest spin speeds
BENEFIT
This dependable system guards against vibration and noise, making installation
possible nearly anywhere. Even on soft floors, Advanced Vibration Control™ Plus
maintains control and adjusts to accommodate its location. If the washer is
moved, the system learns its new surroundings for consistent performance.
DIRECT DRIVE WITH A PURPOSE
This premium, copper-wire direct drive motor is more durable and
dependable. Plus, it operates with fewer parts that create less
noise. The direct drive motor uses enough power to move even
the largest loads cleaned by a 4.3 cu. ft. capacity washer.
Other brands use an aluminum wire with a copper coating
which isn’t nearly as durable.

PERFORMANCE
SUPERIOR DRYING TECHNOLOGY
HIGH-EFFICIENCY ADVANCED
MOISTURE SENSING SYSTEM
QUAD BAFFLES
Four unique interior baffles keep clothes moving
in the drum for superior drying. This innovative
design promotes active tumbling and prevents
clothes from riding the baffle. Point out the
difference in number of baffles to customers.
Three active built-in sensors read incoming air temperature,
exhaust air temperature and moisture levels so that
the drying cycle can end when everything is perfectly
dry, saving time and energy. Loads are protected
from overdrying to reduce the risk of shrinking.
HOW IT WORKS
1 An inlet thermistor on the heater box
checks temperature of incoming hot air.
2 Moisture sensing strips give a signal
4
when there’s moisture and calculate
the number of damp hits.
3 An outlet thermistor measures
heat coming out of the duct.
2
4 The four baffles keep clothes actively tumbling.
When both temperatures of the inlet and outlet
thermistors reach the desired dry temperature
and there are no more damp hits, the load is dry.

SOUNDGUARD™ STAINLESS STEEL DRYER DRUM
Galvanized steel
Sound-dampening laminate
Three-layers of protection dramatically minimize noise and maintain durability.
This top-of-the line dryer drum uses two layers of steel with a middle

tumbling noise generated by hard objects like coins, buckles and buttons.
(Available on models ME/GD7000X & ME/GD9000Y only.)
THINK OF IT THIS WAY
430-Grade stainless steel
It’s like ringing a bell! When you ring a bell with your hand around it, it
dampens the sound. Show customers the difference in sound-dampening
by tapping on the drum and comparing it to other models.
