Customer Questions & Answers

If you are just buying the dryer to use with an existing washer, how does the steam feature work?

Asked by: Anonymous
shelly, The steam feature on this Maytag Maxima XL Dryer is independent of the washer. It is feature that is on the dryer. We do have a steam feature on our washers as well, but you do not need both products to make the steam work on one product. In order for the steam option to work, you would need to hook a water line up to the dryer. Typically, part is supplied, you use the cold water line from the water. There is a Y Adapter supplied so that you can run one line to the washer and the other to the dryer. The advantage to this is that you don't have to use a water reservoir or have to ensure water is there, with a water line, the steam function is always available. The steam feature on the dryer is great for relaxing wrinkles, pulling odors out of clothing, and assisting in keeping wrinkles from setting in on clothing that is left in the dryer. Thank you for viewing this Maytag home appliance and the opportunity to answer your question.

Can this dryer be used as a stackable with the Model # MHW7000XW washer?

Asked by: Anonymous
milla, You would be able to stack this dryer with the MHW700XW, it would fit. However, aesthetically they would not match, but functionally they would stack together with the appropriate stacking kit. The stacking kit needed is part number: W10298318RP. Thank you for viewing this Maytag Maxima XL Gas Dryer.

Maxima XL 7.4 cu. ft. Gas Dryer with Steam in Granite-DISCONTINUED is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 72.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from This dryer does it all! My stained work clothes or my spouses dress clothes our Maxima XL dryer coupled with the matching washer keep us both looking great. Our kid clothes stay fresh and bright and the steam option keeps our sons allergies in check. You'll be amazed at the ease of using all the options and speed and gentleness of this dryer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outstanding Dryer I can not say enough good things about this dryer. I purchased it with the matching washer and pedestals to replace a 18 year old Maytag pair. I think the washer is terrific, too. Clothes dry surprisingly fast in the dryer. I appreciate, however, that they are not over dried - meaning unnecessarily over heated and possibly damaging the fabric of my clothes. The machine runs very quietly and I'm frequently surprised when I hear the signal that the load is dry as I forget the machine is running. The dryer has a number of setting options that make it easy to customize dying cycles. The steam feature is great for freshening up clothing without running them through a wash or to just get out the wrinkles. The thing I like best is the way my clothes smell when the laundry is done. I use the same cleaning materials as with my old machine, but they smell so much better with these new machines. I only hope these machines last as long as my previous Maytag appliances!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! Love the large capacity of this dryer. You do have to be careful though, I washed and dried the covers on my sofa which is a microfiber and got a waffle pattern where the top part of the dryer melted the fabric a little. User error though, I should have set it to low heat. So far so good though. Very efficient dries most loads on the normal cycle which is set to 38 min. Lint screen seems flimsy but time will tell if it's going to hold up. Like all front loaders you do have to remove large comforters/bedding to reposition and make sure the middle dries better. I think this dryer gives you a chime to remind you do to that though which is nice. Love the look of the washer dryer combo. I do have mine stacked and I don't like the transition from washer to dryer. I thought they would sit flush when stacked but they do not due to the tapered bottom edge of the dryer and the flaired top edge of the washer it's sitting on. When stacked it is difficult to read the dial, I am 5' 4" tall - average height. Overall, I'm very pleased with my purchase and the capacity of this set! Set is a little pricy but for me worth it. I can get more laundry done in one load and it doesn't take me all day to wash clothes with my growing family = growing messiness. Very "pretty" machine though - I have the graphite color I think. I like the easy touch buttons. Just need to be careful if you brush against the machine while walking by or moving laundry in or out. love that you can stack them to make better use of space in the laundry room. The washer/dryer doors open opposite right now but I think I can switch the dryer door to open to the other side, which I plan on doing when I have time. Need to check the book on that one though!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy as a Sunday morning My wife and I are opposites (hence, the attraction). I embrace new technology, she prefers old, predictable, and reliable. So, she resisted the idea of a new washer/dryer until 'old reliable' was in hospice care. Thus commenced the search and Goldilocks-like assessment of every washer and dryer on the market. (Too big, too small, too hard, too homely?.JUUUUSSST right!) What do we love about our new Maytags? Pretty much everything. First of all, if your sister in law (like mine) has cautioned you against front loaders?.ignore the noise. The new washers are dramatically different from those of a decade ago. (Hey, the Europeans are right about this?.and a lot of other things.) Just be sure to run the "Affresh cycle"?of which the machine will remind you - and no worries about 'smells'. Plus, these washers are smart and efficient. People: water is a precious resource! You can cram (and we do) a HUGE amount of clothes in these washers - and the machine will determine how much detergent and water is needed. They use less than one-fourth as much water as a top loader. PLUS?.and this is really great?.the high spin speeds leave the clothes almost dry?.meaning clothes spend less time in the dryer. Also, these machines are SUPER easy to operate. The panel interfaces are simple and intuitive. (OK, I read the manual?.but my wife did not?and she understood it intuitively.) They're also QUIET. And, did I mention good looking? "Trust me"?.we looked at them all. There is a reason this is rated #1 by Consumers. All in all, we're delighted with the purchase. We're just hoping they last 16 years like our last set.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So Far So Good I bought this to match my one year old Maytag Maxima Washer, after my old Whirlpool dryer kicked the bucket. It's only been a month or so of use so far, but it has worked really well. Seems very well built, like a tank. Looking forward to many years of service from this dryer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great maytag washer and dryer Love this washer and dryer set. Love that I don't have to fill it with detergent every time. It gets my clothes dry quickly and efficiently.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovin to do the laundry with my new Maytag washer and dryer ! We bought our Maytag dryer a week after we had the new washer installed. It just didn't seem right to have one without the other! I love the large capacity tubs and the many options for drying. I have yet to use the steam as I've only had it less than a month, but have plans to try it soon. I'm a quilter so wanted a tub large enough to accommodate those. I've washed a couple and they came out beautifully and drying time has been decreased.
