Questions & Answers

Do I need any aditional parts to vent out right side? Where does the vent come out?

Asked by: JC
Vent comes out the back on the bottom right. Don't buy this drier. We purchased a Maytag 7.4 Cubic Foot Metallic Slate Stackable Electric Dryer in 8/16. Today we woke up to a flooded basement, collapsed ceiling and ruined wood floors because an internal part on the steam unit broke. Pure junk.

Does this dryer require water hookup to use the steam boost option? How does it work if not?

Steaming option
Asked by: Rinney
Yes, hookup is required using supplied hose and Y-adapter.

Do you need to buy a special 4 way dryer vent kit to use side venting. ( kit like the Maytag Model #: W10323246 vent kit) Or is the side vent option already built in to the dryer. Is it as simple of blocking the back port and using a side Knock out?
Asked by: RR
Hi RR, you will need the accessory 4 way venting kit if you prefer to set the dryer to vent out one of the sides, the MED5500FW comes from the factory set to vent to the rear.

This dryer "balls" up the clothing which makes them wrinkled and prevents them from drying during the first cycle.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Initial review We bought this set to replace our ge set. We love the color, they arrxstackable which is a plus and they run quiet. Other thoughts, the cycles for both the washer and dryer are simple with no confusing menues to run through. The steam feature is also a plus though I have not figured it out fully. That said the dryer gets the job done first tine with minimal wrinkling of the clothes which I turn reduces the time I iron my work shirts. The lights in the drums are a nice feature, even if they were not there we would have still bought this set. In all and this is an initial review ( we have used the set for a month now ), I would recommend this set based on initial satisfaction, the ease of use on simplified settings.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from No one LIKES laundry, but this is a good machine I bought this model because it was on clearance at Lowe's and I'm in love with the Maytag guy from the commercials so it was and easy choice. I've had it about 3 weeks and so far so good. There were some complaints about noise, but as a mother, I am able to tune out just about anything so I really don't hear it. It seems to dry very quickly, it has multiple cycles to choose from and I'm eager to try the steam cycle (but I haven't yet). I bought the stacking kit and love, love, love the new found space in my laundry room! The only complaint I have is the noisy buttons when you are starting your cycle and when it ends. I'm sure there is a way to turn down the volume....I'll keep reading my manual. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works fine, except motor tends to get clogged I've had this dryer for about 6 months. It is generally quiet and effective. However, a few months in, the motor started to vibrate loudly. Technician came in and said that it wasn't my fault; the motor had a bunch of lint on it that caused it to get out of balance. He cleared out the lint and now it's working quietly like before. Tips to keep this issue from occurring: First, brush out the interior of the vent every week or so. Second don't use the energy saver mode; that causes more wet lint to get into the fan (not to mention makes your drying cycles take longer). We'll see how the dryer lasts with me doing these things... [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

The is my first experience with a Maytag product and I must say I bought it because of the reviews and the features it offered. I would have given it a 5 star review if it were not for the noise level of the dryer. I have never had a dryer that made as much noise as this one does. It sounds terrible when I first turn it on making metal vibration noises and then continues to do it on and off during the entire cycle. I called Maytag and they sent a repair man out only to tell me that it was "normal" noise level especially for the newer energy efficient models. Well, this is not my first energy efficient washer or dryer.

I'm regretting the purchase of this machine and I haven't even had it for a month yet. Looking past the fact that this dryer was backordered and took approximately a month and a half to be delivered, it seemed to have everything I was looking for in a dryer. It worked fine at first, but after one week there was a loud metal-on-metal scraping sound whenever it ran. I checked the Maytag/Whirlpool website to troubleshoot the issue, and I found that I should check to see if there was a coin or another small metal object stuck in the felt liner. I did that and could not find anything. So I scheduled a service appointment through the Maytag/Whirlpool website. The service repair guy took the machine apart expecting to find a small metal object wedged in the felt liner. What he instead found was that the dryer's drum was bent and had a point where it quickly wore through the felt liner during operation and started rubbing against the body of the machine. The service repair guy believed that the drum was either dropped or compressed at the factory, installed with the bend and sharp edge, and shipped out to me. The service guy said the machine needs a new (round) drum, which will take a week to be ordered and delivered, at which time I'll have to set aside another 4 hour window to be home so the machine can be repaired. My prior Whirlpool dryer worked without an issue for eight years. Really disappointed with the entire buying experience.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Our Second Maytag Dryer We bought this when our 24 year old Neptune washer died, we didn't need to as the Neptune dryer was still going strong after 24 years. We gave that to a local ministry that assists provides the less fortunate with furniture and appliances. We bought this to match the new Maytag washer, and fully expect it will last as long as the other one has. It has all the features of the Neptune, and more. We have not yet hooked up the steam, but everything else is great. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
