Rated 4.3 out of 5 by 20 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by great features It's quiet and great features. I have never been a dryer that helps reduce wrinkles and static. This feature is great. It has already come in handy for us. March 12, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Happy with dryer. I am so happy with this dryer. The capacity is great and the options are plentiful. October 25, 2015
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Buyer Beware Electronic board goes out very easy on this model. We have had to replace the electronic board four times within four years. You have to go VERY slow when switching selections or it goes out. Each time a technician needs to come out to fix the board it takes two trips; one to see what happened and order the part, and the second trip to install. September 6, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Amazing I did a lot of research as we were replacing all our appliances. Selected this model and from the time we plugged it in until now it has exceeded our expectations. Very quiet... October 7, 2015
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by This dryer sucks! Nothing but problems and repairmen!!! It sucks! September 12, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by I love this brand of Maytag dryer. The various features and functions make doing laundry effortless. August 14, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Great features. I'va had this dryer for about three months. I'm quite happy with it. Sometimes the clothes seem wrinkled when finished drying compared to my old dryer. I think I probably just need to get used to which settings to use. June 6, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by What a super dryer! My old 15 year old Maytag dryer simple dried the clothes. It had not many choices for setting and linens, cotton came out quite wrinkled. Not so with the new one! It has a steam option if they get a little too dry for ironing or if you want to refresh an article of clothing. What a great option! You set the dryer for the type of clothes you put in it and it does the rest perfectly! I do love this new updated dryer from Maytag! May 28, 2015
