Product Overview

For the best Maytag brand has to offer, our high capacity dryer is packed with features that make light work of heavy loads. This model boasts a stout 8.8 cu. ft. capacity that's made to move mountains of laundry and the PowerDry cycle that gets your toughest loads dried every time. Plus, smart features give this dryer brains to match its brawn. Moisture sensors mean you can count on it to get clothes the right amount of dry, while the extra interior fin keeps clothes moving in more random tumbling patterns. This way, you'll get less balling and tangling and more compliments. And to top it off, this dryer is backed by a 10-year limited parts warranty.

California residents: see  Proposition 65 information

  • The extra-large 8.8 cu. ft. capacity provides enough space to evenly dry your largest loads straight from the washer
  • 11 Dryer Cycles including bedding, delicates, denim, heavy duty, normal, PowerDry, rapid dry, sanitize, steam refresh, timed dry and wrinkle control
  • Dryer drum's powder-coat finish resists chipping and abrasion to protect clothes from damage
  • Rear panel controls provide convenient access to all cycle and option selections
  • Steam Refresh cycle helps relax wrinkles and reduce odors without rewashing to keep your clothes fresh for longer between loads
  • 5 temperature settings: air only, extra low, high, low and medium allow you to choose the best drying temperature for each load
  • Advanced Moisture Sensing saves money and evenly dry loads without overdrying to help reduce the risk shrinking. While the IntelliDry sensor keeps an eye on moisture levels to automatically stop the cycle when clothes are dry
  • With the Wrinkle Prevent option with steam, the dryer continues to tumble your clothes after the cycle has ended. It's a no-heat way to help prevent wrinkles from setting in
  • Set the end-of-cycle signal volume level on your dryer so you're not disturbed
  • An improved lint screen lets you capture lint in a single swipe, so it only takes you a second to keep the dryer's airflow optimal
  • With an extra interior fin, we've given drying a hand. It helps stop clothes from riding the drum for better tumbling and even drying for small loads

The dryer does not require a pedestal to operate. If there is a local code or something in your area for appliances in the garage, then you would want to follow that. Otherwise, one is not required. Thank you.

There is a water line that you can use to hook the water up to. There is a y-connector that is used to connect the cold water line to the washer and dryer. This eliminates the need to need a reservoir and you don't have to worry about keeping it filled up. Thank you.

Rated 4.5 out of 5 by 119 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great features...Easy to use Only had this for about 2 weeks and so far everything is as I expected. All the features are easy to use and works as well or better than I thought. July 6, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great features This dryer is great. Lots of room to do larger loads. July 7, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Large Dryer Did I say large dryer. I haven't done my king comforter in it yet, but I am sure that I will no longer have to go to the laundromat to wash and dryer it. For my regular, delicate and whatever wash it dry's well. We usually use the time dry of 45 minutes, but there are some items we do on delicate. I have used the steam function. I had a couple of shirts in a pile for ironing. I put them in the dryer on steam for 15 minutes and they came out so good, I hung them up and now they didn't need to be ironed. The dryer doesn't need as much attention as the washer, as to what you are doing. By that, please see my review on the washer. May 30, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Great features I bought this dryer a month ago. Love the large capacity, it dries all the beach towels at once. I did have a problem however, after having it for 2 weeks, the water valve for the steam feature stuck open and even when the dryer was off, it sprayed water into the dryer, soaking the clothes in it. I had to shut off the water; because of that I could not use the washer either. The repairman arrived a week after I called and replaced the valve in no time. I also wish the alert tone when the dryer shuts off was louder. I can't hear it in the basement if the TV is on. June 21, 2016
