Our Ultimate Warranty

We confidently back this dryer for a decade of dependability with our ultimate warranty: a 5-year parts and labor warranty followed by an additional 5-year limited parts warranty on the drive motor and dryer drum.

Image Feature

Steam Refresh Cycle

The Steam Refresh cycle uses a fine mist in the heated dryer drum to relax wrinkles and revive clothes without washing.

Image Feature

Sanitize Cycle

The Sanitize cycle removes up to 99.9% of three common household bacteria in the dryer.

Advanced Moisture Sensing Advanced Moisture Sensing uses sensor strips to monitor moisture levels and temperatures, helping to get your largest loads evenly dried every time.

Extra-Large Capacity This 7.0 cu. ft. capacity dryer has plenty of space to dry 18 towels in a single load.

Maytag® Commercial Technology Maytag® Commercial Technology features high-performance, commercial-grade parts built to last, including a high-torque motor, 5-rib dryer belt and premium rollers.

High-Torque Motor A high-torque motor powers fast spin speeds, which work with optimized airflow and an extra interior fin for exceptional drying.

Steam-Enhanced Cycles This Maytag® dryer uses steam on select cycles to help prevent wrinkles, refresh clothes and reduce static.

Static Reduce Option With the Static Reduce option, a fine mist of water is sprayed onto clothes as they tumble at the end of the cycle to cut down on static.

American Pride We take pride in building strong, reliable appliances for your home. From Marion, Ohio to you, this dryer is designed, engineered and assembled in the U.S.A.

IntelliDry® Sensor The IntelliDry® sensor monitors inside moisture and air temperatures to help ensure exceptional drying and consistent results.

Wrinkle Prevent Option with Steam This option continues to tumble your clothes after the cycle has ended and combines a fine mist of water with heat to create bursts of steam that help reduce wrinkles.

Rapid Dry Cycle Dry a small load fast with the Rapid Dry cycle, which pairs nicely with the Rapid Wash cycle on select Maytag® washers to get clothes ready in no time.

Wrinkle Control Cycle Drying temperatures adjust from medium to low to help minimize wrinkles.

Audio Level Option Set the audio level on your dryer so no matter what you're up to or where you are in the house, you can hear the end-of-cycle signal.

Lint Screen This lint screen lets you capture lint in a single swipe, so it only takes you a second to keep the dryer's airflow optimal.

Direct Y-Connector Water Hook-Up A Y-connector eliminates the need to fill a reservoir in dryers with steam enhanced cycles.

Airflow Monitor The airflow monitor provides a visual display to help aid in drying performance and energy efficiency.

Professional delivery and installation is available for every product we sell. We would be happy to coordinate delivery and installation for you.

Extended warranties are usually very inexpensive and can save you thousands in the future. Some can even cover extra costs that result, such as cost of food that spoils when your fridge dies. It's simple and inexpensive to purchase extended warranties and one of the smartest ways to protect your investment.

Appliances can be large, heavy and expensive. You probably don't have the special tools or expertise needed to fix them in a crisis. If you can spare a few thousand dollars without batting an eyelash for new appliances should they break tomorrow, don't buy a warranty. But if you're like most of us, protect yourself by purchasing inexpensive extended warranties when you buy a new product and save yourself big money in the long run.

So many options!

JuJu 7/18/2017

We've had our dryer almost two months. I love the many options but the book doesn't give very detailed descriptions of how to use them all. For example, the wrinkle free cycle and the same cycle with steam has never made my clothes as wrinkle free as my old dryer AND it leaves them damp. I'm sure it is me but the instructions don't help.

Large Capacity Electric Dryer with Steam-Enhanced Cycles - 7

Judy F. 7/12/2017

I like the dryer, but I feel it is extremely noisy. I previously owned a Whirlpool dryer that I thought was noisy, but this one is more so. It seems that it quiets down after it warms up, but still is noisy even compared to the old one. The other thing is I wish there were more temperature settings to choose from when in the Normal setting. I think that setting should have more temperatures than Low and High. The last thing is the dryer screen. My old Whirlpool had it in the front of the drum and it was so much better than on top of the dryer since I used that to fold clothes, etc. Same with the door, I would prefer it open down and not to the right/left depending on how you set it. Even with all of these things mentioned, I do like the dryer.

Terrible

Frustrated 5/12/2017

We purchased a Maytag washer and dryer had them delivered in January 2017' while the weather has been great, the dryer has been a nightmare It has not dried clothes properly for the past two months A repair tech that Maytag sent out about 2 weeks ago after waiting over two weeks for an appt came to service the dryer after 21/2 hrs he could not repair it and said it failed the diagnostic tests, he had to report to his supervisor and someone would call within 2 days, no call from anyone so I called and finally talked to someone 3 days later They said they thought it was the control panel and had to order one but was having a difficult time locating the item, it is now over 10 days and I still do not have the problem resolved and no idea when they will receive the panel and if that will take care of the problem, how is it Maytag does not have the proper part? You have no idea how frustrating this is for us, when will this problem be resolved

No, I do not recommend this product

Great dryer

Talan's wife 4/26/2017

We have had this unit for a couple months now, and I have no complaints. It is large capacity, even larger than our previous large capacity, which is great. The less loads we have to do, the better. We tried the steam wrinkle prevention feature last week on a load of jeans that had sat in there overnight and they came out looking great. I thought the steam feature was a little over the top when we bought it, but I'm so happy now that we have utilized it and had good results. I would recommend this unit for sure.

Quiet and Large Capacity

Stormin' Norman 3/28/2017

This dryer actually deserves 4.5 stars, but that is not one of the choices. It replaced an ancient Maytag (20+ years old) dryer. Going from an old, simple unit to this new, sophisticated electronic model has been a challenge in experimenting with all the different "customized" settings to see what combination works the best for each load. So far, the dryer has worked very well and does a nice job of handling a wide variety of wash loads. It does not dry clothes as quickly as my old unit, but it is much quieter and holds a much larger load of clothes than of the old unit.
