Doesn't get hot enough to dry clothes

Shellly 9/22/2016

A lot of fancy features but even on the hottest setting the clothes take a very long time to dry. I have not called to get someone out to take a look but I hear from others this is a problem.

Installed Feb. 6th. and has been more than satisfactory. Love that it uses so little water. It is also more gentle on everything, from delicates to towels, than my old agitator Maytag. Very pleased.

I love that it has a light inside, that there is a steam setting to eliminate the static electricity, that it's quiet, large, and things don't get tangled up and twisted.It also looks really nice in our laundry room.

I had to replace my 1970's Maytag washer and dryer as the dryer was leaving black marks on the clothes. They still ran great. That is why I chose Maytag again. I went with these models due to the rebates and deal we got. We love them. I hope they last another 40 years. Thanks Maytag!

Super quiet and efficient. Holds EVERYTHING including heavy blankets, towels, spreads. Almost as good as getting a new car. Replaced a very old inefficient dryer. What was I thinking? Not a moment's regret.

Excellent Product

7/20/2015

Didnt really need to replace my 20 year old Maytag dryer, but since my dear old Maytag washer was wore out from washing 10-15 loads a week for 20 years, I decided to switch from electric to gas on this new Maytag dryer. It runs like a charm and is extremely quiet and dries fast. Lots of settings and intuitive to use. Love the steam injection to remove wrinkles and the way the tub can be optioned to tumble ever so often to prevent wrinkles after the dry cycle is done. Excellent maching. Highly recommend.

Overall nice dryer

archikris 7/1/2015

Still getting used to this unit but am overall satisfied with it. I like the timer feature which lets you know how much time is left until complete.Only cons:Would like more control over temperature between settings.Sometimes doesn't seem to dry completely, even on highest dry setting and I have to restart on timed dry a couple of times.Seems to take longer to dry than older model, but this may just be a perception.

Noisy and leaks

Mountain dog mama 5/29/2015

I don't like to write a poor review but here, since you asked, is the truth of the matter. I had a Neptune for 9 years and liked it very much so I was expecting the same with this very expensive Maxima. First the sounds are extremely loud (but our repairman figured out how to turn them off). Secondly, it is loud when spinning (sounds like a plane taking off). And, thirdly, it drips quite a bit when it is finished. So much so that I now put a towel in the gasket so that it doesn't run onto the floor. Like the automatic soap dispenser though as well as the light in the drum.And I like the fresh hold feature

I LOVE MY DRYER

ssr710 3/31/2015

I was heartbroken when my 7 yr old front loader washer died. (I know this is a dryer review but bear with me) I was prepared to buy only a new washer until my repair guy mentioned that almond appliances are no longer available! So I bought a set of lovely black Maytags. The dryer's steam feature was originally a turn off for me, as I'd heard about mold in the water chamber, etc. I was reassured that there was no separate tank but it had it's own water line, I relented (and I needed a working washer/dryer) Fastforward a few months & I've used the steam refresh setting a few times & I love it. I have a gas model & find that I have no regrets replacing a working dryer with this one that matches my washer!

gmart77 1/28/2015

We've now owned this dryer for a little over a month and have been exceedingly happy with the performance. The dryer handles large loads and dries clothes thoroughly. It's simple to use and quiet. The dryer seems to be well made and the Maytag warranty is about as good as it gets in the appliance world. We're expecting and looking forward to many years of happy usage.

Markxs 11/9/2014

I bought this with the matching dryer and simply love them both. This washer does a really good job. Very energy efficient, etc... I would suggest buying the additional pedestal for the appliances. The color I choose was Metallic Slate. If you buy the pedestals, please be aware that the color of the pedestals are a little darker than the Metallic Slate of the washer or dryer, but they look good together.
