Steam Refresh Cycle

The Steam Refresh cycle uses a fine mist in the heated dryer drum to relax wrinkles and revive clothes without washing.

Advanced Moisture Sensing Advanced Moisture Sensing uses sensor strips to monitor moisture levels and temperatures, helping to get your largest loads evenly dried every time.

Extra-Large Capacity This 7.0 cu. ft. capacity dryer has plenty of space to dry 18 towels in a single load.

Maytag® Commercial Technology Maytag® Commercial Technology features high-performance, commercial-grade parts built to last, including a high-torque motor, 5-rib dryer belt and premium rollers.

High-Torque Motor A high-torque motor powers fast spin speeds, which work with optimized airflow and an extra interior fin for exceptional drying.

Steam-Enhanced Cycles Maytag® dryers are steam-enhanced to help prevent wrinkles, refresh clothes and reduce static.

Static Reduce Option With the Static Reduce option, a fine mist of water is sprayed onto clothes as they tumble at the end of the cycle to cut down on static.

American Pride We take pride in building strong, reliable appliances for your home. From Marion, Ohio to you, this dryer is designed, engineered and assembled in the U.S.A.

IntelliDry® Sensor The IntelliDry® sensor monitors inside moisture and air temperatures to help ensure exceptional drying and consistent results.

Wrinkle Prevent Option with Steam This option continues to tumble your clothes after the cycle has ended and combines a fine mist of water with heat to create bursts of steam that help reduce wrinkles

Rapid Dry Cycle Dry a small load fast with the Rapid Dry cycle, which pairs nicely with the Rapid Wash cycle on select Maytag® washers to get clothes ready in no time.

Sanitize Cycle The Sanitize cycle removes up to 99.9% of three common household bacteria in the dryer.

Wrinkle Control Cycle Drying temperatures adjust from medium to low to help minimize wrinkles.

Audio Level Option Set the audio level on your dryer so no matter what you're up to or where you are in the house, you can hear the end-of-cycle signal.

Lint Screen This lint screen lets you capture lint in a single swipe, so it only takes you a second to keep the dryer's airflow optimal.

Direct Y-Connector Water Hook-Up A Y-connector eliminates the need to fill a reservoir in dryers with steam enhanced cycles.

Airflow Monitor The airflow monitor provides a visual display to help aid in drying performance and energy efficiency.

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.

Great dryer

Love the dryer except for the lint trap. It's located on the top of the dryer and when I remove the lint it ends up on top of my dryer.

Great dryer!!!

Skeeter 5/31/2017

Needed a new dryer as my old dryer was not doing the job. When I went into Kelseyville Appliance I was intending to buy a basic gas dryer. I walked out with a steam dryer and just love it. Not only does it dry efficiently, but the steam setting is great for a quick refresh. I would recommend this dryer to anybody - large families or just the two of you - it does a great job.

Only a month old. Still getting used to the dry cycles for certain items. Seem to under dry towels and overdry lighter weight items. Hope to get this down pat soon. Also, would have preferred the dryer door to open up and down like my previous model.

OK Dryer

Phil 3/22/2017

Does a nice job drying. Seems to take to long to start dryer again after pausing. Very large capacity. Have only done a few loads. Will be interesting to see if it holds up as long as my previous Kenmore dryer.

Phil 3/22/2017

I have had the washer for a month and have only done a few loads. I am totally impressed with the capacity of the washer. It does not seem to rinse as well as my old Kenmore washer even when I use an extra rinse cycle. I am new to HE washing but not sure it uses enough water.

Maytag Bravos XL Dryer with steam

Lou 2/23/2017

I purchased one month ago and it began making a loud noise last week. The repairman came out yesterday and wasn't sure what the problem is, but was going to order a new motor. It seems the dryer should be replaced given the fact it is only a month old. I'm not pleased with this solution. The repairman indicated if it wasn't the motor they would replace.

I liked my Neptune Drying Center far more.

Disappointed 2/3/2017

I bought this because the control panel for the Neptune Center is no longer available. This is a disappointing replacement. First, although it is the current model for the Bravo XL it is too short to line up evenly with the Bravo XL washer which we bought less than 18 months ago. Second, the door is so low to the ground that my back hurts when I load and unload it. Third it seems to lack the quality of that I have come to expect for a Maytag. Does it dry my clothes? Yes. Does it offer a setting that I can use when clothes are not to be put in a dryer as my Neptune did? NO!!! If I could have repaired my Neptune I would have done so. Sadly, Maytag wants to sell washers and dryers, so they stop making parts that are needed to repair older models, forcing the consumer to buy a replacement that is no where near as good.
