We have had several dryers over the years, usually buying the low end non-name brand appliance. This time when our dryer went out, my husband came home with this Maytag. I was a bit concerned about the price, but boy do you get what you pay for!! I had never seen a dryer with steam before, but it works and I love it! I absolutely hate to iron, frankly, I just don't iron. With the refresh steam setting I can throw my blouse in there and in 20 minutes its perfect!!! I also like that the lint screen is easy to access. My grandson loves that the door is glass and has a light and he can watch the clothes tumble. I would definitely recommend this dryer to anyone who can afford it.

Dryer is somewhat of a disappointment, mostly because it bunches clothesâ€"more so than other dryers I have owned. Maybe it is the extra-large capacity? Either way, the bunching or â€˜balling upâ€™ makes linens, blankets, and towels take 2-3 times as long to dry. I have to open the unit every 5 minutes to unravel the bunch or else it takes forever to dry. The bunching issue could easily be solved if the stainless steel drum switched directions every 1-5 minutes from clockwise to counter-clockwise. This would allow the bunches to unravel allowing the clothes to dry more evenly, completely, and quickly. Pros are the look, wrinkle prevent options, capacity, array of drying features, quietness, and the LED light in the drum.

Comments about Maytag Maxima Electric Steam Dryer:
The steam does not work as well as described in the booklet the close come out moist and not dry and wrinkle free. The drying time is also alot longer than other dryers we have had like the Kenmore elite. The electric bill also went up after purchasing this model.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Love this product
from Bedford, IN
I got this dryer because of the size and the steam feature. And I love it for so much more. My little boy says it looks like a space ship with the light on. I love all the settings and the user freindly gages.
This dryer works very well. The drum spins fast so if you mix sheets and clothes together you get a damp ball of garments surrounded by sheets. Just don't mix the two items and the dryer does a nice job.
from Winston-Salem, NC
This dryer dries clothes quickly and with minimal wrinkling. Everything comes out soft. It does a great job on all types of fabric, too.
Your clothes will dry in no time. Highly recommend this dryer.
Does excellent quick job of drying, mostly wrinkle free & dry but not "over dryed". Controls are user friendly & easy to select right choice load.
from Parma, Idaho
I really like how quickly the dryer completes drying without extra high temp and seems to know exactly when clothes are dry, leaving them wrinkle free if you remove immediately. Even with mixed loads there is only occasional trace of dampness where seams are extra heavy or fabric is thick. The cycle end signal is not very loud and if I'm not in the part of the house closest to the dryer I often don't hear it (have learned to "listen"). I would like it to continue heat free for a few minutes when drying is complete & give reminder signal so I can stop what I'm doing & get to dryer before it "sits" with clothes. Turning it to unheated cycle allows for removal & folding while keep rest of load wrinkle free. I'm pleased with performance overall.
Product works well but promised adjustments not delivered
from Northern Michigan
I purchased new stack-able units. I was told that I could have the doors open the same way making it easier for me to load and unload laundry. With this along with capacity being one of the selling points, I was very disappointed when told they could not do this. If I were to purchase a unit again, it probably would not be this one due to my dissatisfaction with my work space and not having doors hinged in the manner agreed upon at purchase.
Easy to use, nice looking, efficient
I like the light on the inside and the steel drum. It's quiet and has a large capacity.
Dries large loads quickly. Plenty of drying options
from Dallas, TX
Dries large loads quickly, such as, bedding and towels. I like the options for wrinkle control and being able to adjust temp level. I have yet to use the steam feature. Overall, a great dryer.
