"We are thrilled to receive this honor from such a trusted authority in home cleaning like Good Housekeeping," said Lauren Bigger, Maytag Senior Brand Manager. "Even though 59% of pet owners agree shedding pet hair is a problem1, there was a void in the market for easy laundry remedies for pet hair. We changed that when we introduced our Maytag Pet Pro system in 2022, and know our Pet Pro Top Load Washer provides a purposeful and powerful solution. We're so happy the experts at Good Housekeeping agree!"

The Maytag® Pet Pro Top Load Washer is designed to visibly remove pet hair. The Pet Pro option in the washer unleashes additional water and a deep rinse to activate the Pet Pro Filter, the industry's first pet hair filter in a washer, removing 5x more pet hair2 from clothes.
