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.

  • 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

Require water line?

If I do not have a water line accessible to the Dryer (even via Y-line), can the steam function still be used via fillable tank/reservoir? If there is a fillable option, does that come with the dryer, or must a separate part be ordered?
Asked by: klc
klc, in order to use the steam function for the dryer, a water line must be connected to the dryer. There is no fillable option for the dryer.

8.8 cu. ft. Electric Dryer with Steam in White is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 218.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not worth the money I bought this dryer a couple of years ago to replace my 40-year old GE electric dryer which was fantastic until it finally died of old age, and wish I hadn't wasted my money. It works fine - yeah - but if all you want is a dryer that dries your clothes, bedding, and similar items, just get a plain ole dryer with a large capacity. I've used the steamer function and found that the clothes get too wet. I've used nearly every setting on an experimental level and found that the ONLY way I can get anything fully dry without having to reset it over and over and over again is to just leave it on the normal setting, with the highest heat and the driest level. Default settings don't do the job; I have to manually adjust it to the highest and driest levels or my clothes, towels, and bedding are still damp at the end of the cycle. Re the electronic stuff - big deal - I could have gotten that with a plain vanilla dryer for about half of what I paid for this thing with all its fancy-schmancy bells and whistles. If I had it to do over again, I'd opt for the cheap-o, large capacity model that just gets everything dry the first time.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice and quiet Bought this as a replacement for previous similar Maytag model [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Plenty of space; plenty of options This dryer tumbles my bedding with plenty of space to spare. I also love the multitude of options. I think taking time to decide which option is right for certain clothes makes the clothes come out better and will keep them looking new for much longer. I use the customized settings for all of my dry clean only items (except suits). It really reduces my dry cleaning expenses! I haven't used the steam setting yet, but I am glad I bought the technology while I was making such a big change. The settings are clearly explained; I suggest everyone take the time to read the instructions and appreciate a great machine. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Features I previously had a Maytag, it was probably 30 years old I guess. It has never quit. I got tired of going to the laundry mat to do bedding. I wanted a more advanced model that would hold more, save water and had more features. I love my new machine. Although I am still learning to operate, it has so many functions. I actually do less loads of laundry per week. We like on a farm so everyday we have very dirty laundry. I still have not quite figured out the oxy cycle. I still have to pretreat our laundry because it can be very dirty and sometimes has to do an extra rinse. But the large capacity has saved me a lot of time and water wasted from my old maytag with the center wringer and no place for fabric softerner or bleach or oxi detergent.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! Bought this (with the matching washer) when building my new house. I moved in 4 mos. ago and have used them both a lot washing things that had been in storage for 9 months. I love that I can now wash blankets & coverlets at home. The feature I was unsure I needed was the steam, but it saved me a lot of $ by using it to get creases out of cashmere sweaters that had been folded for so long. Also wonderful for handling dog hair on clothes! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Dryer! Bought this to replace the one lost in the flood of August 2016. Loved the variations of cycles before, and still do, especially the steam cycles. Dries large comforters and washable rugs with room to spare. I like having the window showing how long the cycle will be. I also love the tennis shoe drying rack, it's very useful. I used the previous BRAVOS model for 8 years with no issues at all. Would buy again in a heartbeat! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Purchased this dryer in November and within the first six months of owning it, it now takes 2.5+ ... Purchased this dryer in November and within the first six months of owning it, it now takes 2.5+ hours to dry any load! We only put it on the timed dry feature now for the longest time (2 hours 30 min) because the loads do not dry any other way. I'm extremely frustrated with this dryer as it is brand new and it makes it difficult to do more than a couple loads in one day. It references doing 21 towels - there is no way! It takes over 2.5 hours to dry a load of six towels!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I LOVE MY MATCHING DRYER I bought this matching dryer for my monstrous (capacity) 6.2 Maytag washer! I love it! It has the steam option to freshen up my work clothes and the dryer is absolutely incredible! I am no a dedicated Maytag customer! My next purchase from them will be a dishwasher, but I am absolutely THRILLED with my new washer and dryer. It's about time someone made a quality washer and dryer that will handle large loads. Thank you so much, Maytag! AWESOME product!
