Maytag Introduces New Top Load Washer and Dryer to Handle Large, Tough Loads

A recent survey conducted by Omnibus Research on behalf of Maytag* found that American households spend more time on laundry than other household tasks: 

  • American households report that laundry is the most time consuming household task (41%), followed by tidying up (39%) and dishes (16%).
  • Though the amount of laundry that households do on average every week can vary widely, 67% are doing at least three loads every week.
  • Generation X does the most laundry, with one-third (32%) saying they do five or more loads of laundry every week.

Especially as holiday guests and entertaining add to the laundry pile, saving time by consolidating laundry loads is more important than ever.

"We know that many Maytag families are busy, especially when holiday guests come and housework increases," said Maytag Senior Brand Manager Brendan Bosch. "That's why we're excited to introduce this durable new Top Load Washer that can save time by handling large loads – even up to 22 towels at once."
