Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Adam good for about 4 years
I would be curious to know how long all the positive reviewers have owned their Maytag Centennial. Mine worked great for about 4 years...and now the motor is on its way out. It now overheats and shuts down (drum stops spinning) before it can get through a complete dry cycle. Sometimes it will start back up a few minutes later after it has cooled down a bit. Repair cost is about half the price of a new dryer, so am shopping now for replacement. Not even close to an expected 10-year life...very disappointed. As many others have stated, the all-too-common top side lint trap makes for a messy top side and the buzzer is quite loud (would be nice to have a low volume option).

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Hillwoman Good Dryer Overall
The dryer settings give me the options I need. The clothes dry in a timely manner without getting over dryed. The wrinkle free setting is nice. I hate to iron. The price was right too. The one option I am not sure if I like is the lint trap on top though the quality is good. I have to remember to empty it because I don't see it like I did at the bottom of the door. It may be just something I need to get use to. The one thing I would change is the sound it makes at the end of the cycle. My last two appliances have been LG and while I know they probably won't do a tune like their competitors I think they could come up with something better than this sound.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by KennyB Happy and satisfied
We are very pleased with the purchase of our new Maytag Gas Dryer, This dryer replaces our fast dying dryer which also had served us well. We chose Maytag because the washer we purchased a few years ago was also a Maytag and has served us very well. Maytag products have never failed us in their use and the reliability lives up to it's name and reputation. This Dryer was on backorder but we were happy to wait for something this good. The delivery was also very good as the delivery people were very polite and helpful putting the dryer exactly where we wanted it making sure that we were happy and satisfied with our product. From purchase to delivery Home Depot was polite and helpful all the way.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Phyllis worth the money
The dryer is such an improvement over my electric dryer that died after only 7 years. This dryer was priced the same as a quality electric one and my clothes dry faster and the gas is so much more affordable. The only thing I miss is my electric dryer for used to open by pulling down and was convenient to find the clothes as I got them out of the dryer, but I'm already getting used to the new one.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by JohnC Nice purchase with annoying hardship
Only issue with the set up and getting this dryer is the non availability to order it direct set up for Propane rather than natural gas. It is difficult for rural people like myself to find or get someone out to change it over as over the years companies have made it more difficult to get access to the burner and igniter assemblies. Places to take it directly to even in large cities is fewer and fewer. Took over three weeks after receiving the dryer to get someone out to change and get the kit to make it able to use propane.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by MichelangeIo Paid for installation kit and installation but was not installed
The product seems to work fine. The problem was that when ordered, we also paid for an installation kit and installation by a certified plumber, as we were told is required by law. However, when the product arrived, the representatives said they could not install the dryer. We paid someone else to come do it.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Bear79 Priced right with good quality
We had an old dryer that died. I looked up in Consumer Guide for some highly rated dryers at a reasonable cost. I was not interested in fancy features, just more things to break. The installers did a great job, fast and clean. The washer is larger than my older one and has a light so I can see inside. It is very quiet and does a great job. I would recommend it.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by cheryl Dryer Review
I bought this several months ago. I like the dryer and would recommend. The drawback, in my opinion, is the lint screen is on top the machine. You have to clean off the top of the dryer every time you pull it out to clean off the gathered lint. This design just adds extra work and I wish it could be changed.
