Advanced Moisture Sensing Advanced Moisture Sensing on Maytag® top load dryers makes sure every sock and shirt gets the right amount of dry. Sensor strips inside measure the moisture levels around your fabric, while inlet and outlet sensors determine air temperatures to stop the load at just the right time. It's the formula for exceptionally even results every time, even for the largest loads.

Rapid Dry Cycle Waiting for the dryer is no fun. Get small loads like that must-have outfit dry quickly with the Rapid Dry cycle on Maytag® top load dryers.

Sanitize Cycle When you need a way to get rid of everyday bacteria on items you don't want to put through the washer, the Sanitize cycle has you covered. The cycle removes up to 99.9% of three common household bacteria.

Wrinkle Prevent Option Don't let wrinkles cramp your style. With the Wrinkle Prevent option, the dryer keeps clothes tumbling up to 150 minutes after the cycle has ended.

Maytag® Commercial Technology These dryers are built to last thanks to the Maytag® Commercial Technology we put under the hood. They come standard with a durable, heavy duty motor, premium rollers and a 5-rib belt that keeps them humming along year after year.

10-Year Limited Parts Warranty on the Drive Motor and Dryer Drum These dryers are built to last thanks to the Maytag® Commercial Technology we put under the hood. They come standard with a durable, high-torque motor, 5-rib dryer belt and durable rollers that keep them humming along year after year.

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.

plenty of room!

caitlin 8/4/2017

plenty of room for our loads of laundry so it gets things dry the first time around! and, it may seem silly, but i love the style of the lint filter. it's easy to clean and doesn't get lint everywhere.

Keep Looking

NURSEeg 7/21/2017

This is a beautiful machine and seems to be of good quality, however, I cannot recommend this for ONE REASON. Every single thing you put in there get tangled up!!!!! It drives me NUTS!!!! It is almost impossible to dry sheets because they get so tangled that inevitably parts of the sheets don't get dry. It makes me sad because I love everything else about this machine. My opinion is that the baffles on the inside are too "flat"/don't stick out enough to keep them tumbling away from each other. Thus, everything tends to clump together and is a mess. Every time I open the door, I HOPE to get a different result, but it is not the case. My advice then is that if you are in the market for a new dryer, KEEP LOOKING.

georgelowrealtor 7/19/2017

Have had this dryer for 2 months and I am very satisfied with this dryer. After 17 years, it was time to upgrade. This dryer holds king bedding and comforters with ease. The wrinkle out setting also.works well with everyday clothing. Drying time has been cut by about 20%, more or less. Very quiet.

MJ 7/18/2017

Clothing Wrinkled

Karen 7/16/2017

I am very disappointed in my selection of this brand dryer. Simple cotton t-shirts come out wrinkled every time--immediately after the cycle stops. This is the case even when the wrinkle feature is applied. There have also been several occasions when clothes were damp. If you are in the market for a dryer, please read consumer reviews carefully and ask friends and relatives about their own personal experiences before selecting your make/model.

Twist and shout

Mom 7/15/2017

Many times the clothes are twisted together and need to be separated and dried longer...especially the sheets and towels. Many times the clothes are not completely dry and the cycles take longer than my old machine. The lint trap is very nice; it's easy to clean and catches many of the fuzzies and pieces of dirt or grass left after the washer missed them!

Issue causing concern`

Alda 7/12/2017

Only have this gas dryer since March 3. Two weeks ago the drum looked burned out. I contacted Lowes who contacted a company called "Fields" who came and looked at the dryer and told me it must have been a brown blanket that caused the issue. What a bunch of baloney and feel this dryer has a defect. With Gas we do not want to fool around and may consider another option.
