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.

Customer Reviews

Maxima XL 7.4 cu. ft. Gas Dryer with Steam in White-DISCONTINUED is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 13.
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 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Eergy Efficient - Fast My 2nd Maytag gas dryer - only replaced old one (Bravo Which I LOVED) Because I redid my laundry room and went with stackable units for more space. This model dry's quickly and refresh works even better than the Bravo I had. It dry's quickly and has many settings to work with any type of clothing you put in. Dry's fast - Love the gas - what a HUGE difference from electric!! Full size washer and dryer in Maxima - I'm very pleased with my new pair.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from wraps blankets and sheets into a ball i bought this a few months ago and as the title suggests it will not dry sheets blankets or comforters as they all roll into a ball
Date published: 2014-07-26
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Confusing selections on panel for dryness choices When I choose a drying mode, the selection does not necessarily dry the clothes as selected. Example: I choose "wrinkle control", it automatically gives me "low temperature" and "more dryness", but then the dryer stops and the waistbands or any thicker area on the item are still damp. I don't understand why the dryer doesn't sense the dampness. My 20 year old Maytag dryer that is still working, never ended the load without sensing the dryness of the clothes. (and my 20 year old Maytag dryer still works fine, but I thought the new dryer would be's not)

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Awesome machine! I bought the Maxima laundry pair in November of 2013. And, I would do it all over again. The dryer is very quiet even when fully loaded. My favorite feature is the steam feature. When I forget to check and see at what point in the drying cycle the dryer is or I run an errand and, upon returning home, find that the dryer has stopped, I just turn on the Refresh with Steam cycle and 23 minutes later the clothes are wrinkle free. All of the cycles come "pre-programmed" as far as heat temperature, type of material being dried, and length of time the cycle will run, however, you can "tweek" some cycles to your preferences. Here in Michigan, during the winter months, static electricity can be a real problem..The reduce static option keep moisture in the dryer and I have never had to pull clothes apart and endure shocks and sparks. If the Jetsons had a dryer of the future, this would have been it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Dryer My wife loves all functions of this dryer, it drys clothes quickly and efficiently. As our washer / dryer is above my downstairs office, I personally love the fact that the combination of both Maxima XL Washer / Dryers that we purchased are whisper quiet. No more house rattling!
