The Maytag Neptune front loader holds a lot of dirty clothes. I like that I can do one big load instead of breaking it down into lots of smaller loads. It does a great job of cleaning the clothes. It's great for washing large items such as comforters or sleeping bags. Another plus of this washer is that it does not need a large amount of laundry detergent. I use a liquid which I like. The soap dispenser is located on the top which is really convenient. The one thing that I do not really like is the rubber around the opening in the front gets moldy if you don't leave the door open after you are done. You need to leave the door open until it is dry. I wish I had known that at the beginning when I first got it. Another thing is you need to make sure of is if you need to put something in after you have started the wash, make sure you hit the pause button. Then when the unlock button shows, then you can open the door. Durability I've had mine for years.
