Product Overview

  • PowerDry cycle with optimized heat and airflow speeds up drying
  • Extra large 8.8 cu. ft. capacity dries 21 towels in a single load
  • Premium high torque motor adds power for drying large loads
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

Questions & Answers

Hoses and other parts?

We plan to have this delivered and installed by Home Depot. What parts are missing (if any) that we need to purchase on top of the dryer to use it to its fullest potential (including steam function)? Also, is the steam function designed to be used with the rack? Either way, does this dryer come with a rack? If not, but one is available, what is the name and part # we need to order?

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 4.6 out of 5 by 252.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from It's beautiful! Works great looks great . Easy to use [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
Date published: 2017-05-26
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Great looking I bought this dryer less than 2 weeks ago. Twice now it has just stopped working in the middle of drying a load. The first time, I called an electrician out to be sure it wasn't something with the connection. Everything checked out fine and then the dryer started working again. The electrician was as baffled as my husband and I were but I was just happy it was working. Now, less than a week later it's not working again. Very frustrating to say the least.

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 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 3 out of 5 by from Not cleaning well...too derp Cannot get clothes STAIN free as I have been doing with my previous machines. Rewash things several times and still stained. Have to use tongs to reach clothes at bottom of tub and would prefer separate wash/rinse temperature settings. Also was supposed to get a 100.00 rebate....received 50. ALL in all, wish I had my Cabrio back [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Easy To Scratch Finish Loads take longer to dry especially heavy loads. The first day we had it installed the top was scratched just by putting the detergent on it. That was very disappointing as I like things to look nice as long as possible. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Rolls Royce Purchased the matching washer too! This pair replaced Samsung that was having problems with washer lids blowing off machines!! Even the fix was not working! This pair is quality and MADE IN USA! Love the features! You won't be disappointed!! Worth every penny!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It's BIG and does a BIG job. We do less loads now, this dryer is big. The cloths come dried right and with no wrinkles, thanks to it settings. Looks cool too, not just old white . The prof will be in how long it last, other lasted 12 yrs. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
