Image Feature

PowerDry System

Even the largest loads won't stand a chance with the optimized heat and even drying of the PowerDry system. The PowerDry cycle gets the job done with powerful heat and airflow to dry faster, while Advanced Moisture Sensing and an extra interior fin help get your largest loads evenly dried 1 .

Image Feature

Sanitize Cycle

The Sanitize cycle uses extra-hot drying temperatures to remove up to 99.9% 2 of three common household bacteria from items you don't want to put through the washer.

Image Feature

Extra Interior Fin

An extra interior fin helps clothes tumble freely instead of flattening out against the drum for even drying of both small and large loads.

Largest Loads, Evenly Dried With 7.4 cu. ft. capacity, there's plenty of room to get your largest loads evenly dried.

Capacidad de 21kg Con suficiente espacio para lavar 29 toallas en una sola carga.

Steam Refresh Cycle The Steam Refresh cycle revives clothes without having to wash them, reducing wrinkles and removing odors.

Rapid Dry Cycle Waiting for the dryer is no fun. Get small loads like that must-have outfit dry in a jiffy with the Rapid Dry cycle on Maytag® dryers.

PowerDry Cycle The PowerDry cycle gets your toughest loads completely dried faster. With optimized heat and airflow, this cycle runs hotter and works harder to power out moisture in your clothes.

Advanced Moisture Sensing Advanced Moisture Sensing delivers even drying every time by keeping a keen eye on air temperatures and moisture levels, stopping the cycle right when clothes are dry.

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 product

Ex Samsung owner 123 3/30/2019

By far exceeds the Samsung unit it replaced. Maytag May be slightly more expensive but well worth it!

Awesome front loader gas dryer

rdavis 1/4/2019

Amazing how quiet and fast it drys the clothes. Plus able to stack on top of the matching front loader washer. Due to limited space in our kitchen.

Well-built and good value for money

rjoy29 12/19/2018

I bought this with the companion front-load washer, and chose this dryer primarily because it matched the washer I had decided on. While this drier dries clothes more consistently than some other driers I have used and accurately adjusts the cycle time as needed (likely thanks to its advanced moisture sensor), I still find a few damp spots on my clothes when I unload them. I generally choose the "normal" dryness level-choosing "more" dryness might solve this problem but I am also concerned about wearing my clothes out faster from over-drying.

Great features but very noisy when running.

ckay18 11/19/2018

I like everything except I think it is exceptionally loud when running and I even had Appliance store come back to check it. They said there was nothing wrong with it, it was the rollers and when they heat up it would be quieter., but that does not happen. It is very loud and annoying when running. Sounds like something is loose.

Good dryer so far

Clay22 11/3/2018

I've had this dryer for a month and so far so good. It's a large capacity so smaller loads need to set the extra dry setting or they are damp. It has all the bells and whistles if that's what you are willing to pay for. Hoping it holds up, time will tell.

Misterdap 10/11/2018

I got this dryer after my GE washer of 10 yrs. finally died. I had to get the Maytag dryer to match the new Maytag washer since I have to stack them. Unfortunately, the brand new dryer arrived defective from the manufacturer However, after contacting Whirlpool service, they sent a technician who repaired the washer to its factory specs and it has been wonderful. Driers my clothes a lot faster than my old GE dryer.

I love the new dryer, it does a good job but the only thing I see is that it has longer drying time on the menu than I am used to. I have not figured out yet if you can decide on a preferred time.

What I Expected

Dwynn2 5/26/2018

Bought this dryer with matching washer to replace a 10-15 year old washer and dryer. The cycle times on the dryer are shorter than our old dryer, but I suspect that is because the clothes come out of the washer less damp due to the faster spin cycles. I like the wrinkle prevent option which will turn the dryer on periodically after a cycle to prevent wrinkling. The Steam option is also very nice since it will allow you to put a wrinkled garment in and use the steam to get the wrinkles out. My only complaint is the dryer did not come with the y-adapter for the steam function and I had to purchase it separately. The store did not let me know about this and i had to go back to the store to get it after the appliances were delivered. I would have given it 5 Stars if the Y-adapter had been included. Why would you sell a dryer with steam and not include the equipment needed to make the steam work. The washer we purchased came with the washer hoses, so I would expect the dryer should come with the steam hose. Overall very happy with the purchase.

Maytag steam dryer

Ccolfe 1/24/2018

I contacted capital appliance on the missing steam package that includes the y joint and 2 foot hose and they advised it is not supposed to be included? The instructions with the dryer says it is suppose to be there. I need Maytag to clarify and send the package to me as soon as possible. Very satisfied with performance otherwise.

Poor Quality

FredS 11/30/2017

I bought the washer and dryer over 5 months ago. The dryer drum was defective and banged against the side of the dryer. They replaced it and to a lessor degree still made other noises. They come back and had to replace another part. After 4 repairs trips and not having use of the dryer for 4 months they want Me to buy an extended warranty. So I need to pay additional $$$ because of their poor quality product. They should have voluntary extended the warranty to 5 years for me to feel comfortable with this purchase. Wish I never bought the Maytag washer and dryer.
