At the deepest point it is only about 6-7 inches deep. I have one and did Maytag Red Carpet as well as Priority One service, never saw one fill more than that.
If you're not having washability problems then you shouldn't be concerned with the water level.
If it were any other company than Maytag I would say go for it. But since it is a Maytag the engineers were better than most. When they sold these machines they were NOT energy rated water savers for the rebates and the others were. Could it be because you are looking at a larger tub and at a slope? All the others were horizontal, Maytag had a slope.
