NSF Certified Sanitary Dryer Cycle Found on Performance Series dryers, this sanitizes items like pillows and stuffed animals.

GentleBreeze Drying System with IntelliDry® Sensor Quickly and efficiently dries clothing for more consistent results with a high-performance motor, large rib belt, premium rollers and better air flow.

Maytag® Commercial Technology Maxima XL dryers bring long-lasting, commercial-grade components that you can depend on into your home. The durable motor and 5-rib belt are all built to easily handle load after load, week after week.

Smooth Balance Suspension System Thanks to Maytag® Commercial Technology, this feature reduces vibration and noise in washers to help keep loads balanced while spinning at top speed. In dryers, drum rollers work with drum glides to reduce vibration.

DuraCushion Dryer Drum Finish This white powder coated drum provides a smooth, scratch-resistant surface for less friction and wear on clothes. Clothes gently glide off its surface without snagging or pilling.

120 Minute Wrinkle Prevent Option With the Wrinkle Prevent Option, clothes continue to tumble every five minutes without heat for 120 minutes after the drying cycle is complete to help prevent wrinkles from setting into clean, dry clothing.

4-Way Venting Increases the number of installation options in the home.

Control Lockout Disables the control pad to prevent little hands from running the dryer.

End-of-Cycle Signal You'll hear the end of it. A signal lets you know when the load is complete.

Professional delivery and installation is available for every product we sell. We would be happy to coordinate delivery and installation for you.

Extended warranties are usually very inexpensive and can save you thousands in the future. Some can even cover extra costs that result, such as cost of food that spoils when your fridge dies. It's simple and inexpensive to purchase extended warranties and one of the smartest ways to protect your investment.

Appliances can be large, heavy and expensive. You probably don't have the special tools or expertise needed to fix them in a crisis. If you can spare a few thousand dollars without batting an eyelash for new appliances should they break tomorrow, don't buy a warranty. But if you're like most of us, protect yourself by purchasing inexpensive extended warranties when you buy a new product and save yourself big money in the long run.

Maytag SUCKS!!

Tom 10/7/2015

Glad Maytag has funny commericals because their products are junk. They don't care about customers since Whirlpool bought them out. I have Performance 5000 series washer and dryer and they are broken more than working. Try getting ahold of Maytag customer Service before you buy then make your choice. They are out to lunch with the repair man making commercials

Brad 7/29/2015

We bought this about two years ago and have already had to replace the heating element once and it has quit working again. Our old dryer was 20 years old and we had little issues with it. It looks like this one is going to cost us a couple hundred dollars a year. It's a joke.

We've been very satisfied with the dryer. Honestly, I haven't used many of the additional features. We're constantly on the run, so I just set it and go. But items are perfect when I return. My older dryer would take multiple cycles to get through a load of towels. This seems to perfectly sense light-weight clothes and heavy items. I've loved the dryer in particular.

Bought this to replace our LG ,because after only a couple years the moisture sensor stopped working on LG and clothes would come out still damp. So we were forced to used timed dry and /or run it multiple times. So far so good with the Maytag,but only time will tell. Have not tried the steam cycle yet, not too concerned about wrinkles ,since I try and take laundry out as soon as the cycle ends.

Quick and easy on the clothes

BrokerBob45 12/23/2013

I think part of it is the ability of the washer to yield clothes that are pretty well wrung out, but this dryer is fast! And the lint screen (more on that later) is not clogged up, meaning the clothes are not deteriorating. The felt seal on the lint screen has come detached, which may be typical, but is sort of a pain. Other than that, it is difficult to find fault. As I said with the washer, probably would not go with the pedestals if a do-over, but not a huge deal at this point. When it is so easy to use the liquid softener, the clothes come out of the dryer with a most satisfying smell. Couldn't be more pleased.

I do NOT like it !!!

Author 12/23/2013

Even if I use the bare minimum of HE laundry detergent and an extra rinse clothes come out of dryer stiff as washboards. I am thoroughly convinced you cannot rinse clothes in such a limited amount of water. I am also disappointed in the amount of vibration during the spin cycles, and I never use the max extraction level. I wish I had my old automatic washer back !!!

This dryer has great features especially the steam refresh option. We have cut down our ironing time because of this feature. The only problem I have is that I don't have a high efficiency washer, so my clothes are wetter than they would be if I had one. That increases the dry time.

We have the dryer stacked over its matching washer. They are located in our dressing room against the wall separating that area from our master bedroom. Both units operate quietly enough to sleep in the next room. The steam feature helps to get out wrinkles quickly after a finished load has sat for a while.

Chazzzo 11/3/2013

Bought the washer-dryer pair through Costco about 2 years ago at a great price and the delivery/installation was perfect....and I normally do these things myself, so I'm not an easy customer. Both washer and dryer have worked well since. The only thing that could have been better for us is the flexibility to reverse the doors both ways. Our dryer is on the left side so the washer door blocks the path to the dryer.

HAPPY11 10/29/2013

I have the gas dryer & when I first got it it wouldn't work (No Heat). After calling repair man out it turned out something in dryer shifted when it was being shipped & it was a quick fix. Since then this gas dryer works very well. It drys a full load of towel in 45 minutes or less. Smaller loads are even faster. Lots of options to choose when drying clothes. Display showing who much time is left is nice. I like how you can choose different settings based on what you are drying. Dryer is nice & quiet. I like the beeper plays music when done instead of that annoying buzzer noise. I am very happy with this dryer.
