    THIS DRYER IS GREAT!!! THE DRY TIME IS SHORTER WHICH GIVES US MORE TIME TO DO THE THINGS WE LIKE TO DO. A DRYER THAT TAKES LONGER IS ACUTALLY EATING UP YOUR TIME. YOU CAN PUT THE CLOTHES IN AND THEY ARE ACTUALLY DRY WHEN THE TIMER IS FINISHED. WITH OUR OLD DRYER IT WOULD SAY THEY WERE GOING TO BE DRY, BUT WERE STILL DAMP AFTER THE CYCLE. THE CLOTHES HAVE NO WRINKLES!! IT IS AMAZING. OUR POWER CONSUMPTION HAS ALSO DROPPED. SO GLAD WE PURCHASED THIS DRYER!!!!

    We bought this washing machine 2.5 years ago and I have been recommending it to everyone. We loved it. Until the drum broke. Disappointing for only having used it 2 years but not as disappointing as the cost to fix it. For parts and labor it cost more to fix it than the actual machine cost us. We were under warranty at the time so didn't have to pay for this fix out of pocket but it was a huge wake up call. Now that we are not under warranty anymore if it breaks we are not paying more than it cost or is worth to fix it and we should have to get an extended warranty it should be a good product in the first place. So unfortunately I am not recommending this anymore. I still love the machine and am thankful it is working now. But if you are looking for a new washing machine get a top loader without an agitator and get one that doesn't have computers in it. This washing machine has 3 and if they break that's it for us and this machine.

                I have been using Maytag for the last 37 years just bought my 3rd set this year, wouldn't buy anything else. It does everything you would expect from a Maytag. Dependable.

                This product works well in a stackable unit.

                Comments about Maytag Performance Series Front Load White Steam Electric Dryer:

                We moved and had to switch to a stackable washer/dryer unit. We bought our Maytag washer in May 2012, so we needed its companion. It has worked great for us! We will most likely stick to Maytag for our washing and drying needs in the future!

                    First front-loading washer for our family and initially was hesitant about capacity and performance given the low water usage. Glad to report that we are very happy with our purchase!

                      Even if I use the bare minimum of HE laundry detergent and an extra rinse clothes come out of dryer stiff as washboards. I am thoroughly convinced you cannot rinse clothes in such a limited amount of water. I am also disappointed in the amount of vibration during the spin cycles, and I never use the max extraction level. I wish I had my old automatic washer back !!!

                          I think part of it is the ability of the washer to yield clothes that are pretty well wrung out, but this dryer is fast! And the lint screen (more on that later) is not clogged up, meaning the clothes are not deteriorating. The felt seal on the lint screen has come detached, which may be typical, but is sort of a pain. Other than that, it is difficult to find fault. As I said with the washer, probably would not go with the pedestals if a do-over, but not a huge deal at this point. When it is so easy to use the liquid softener, the clothes come out of the dryer with a most satisfying smell. Couldn't be more pleased.

                              After comparing many dryers and prices this one came out ahead and has lived up to all it boasts. I love the custom dry feature and it can dry huge items (comforters) allowing those items to be cleaned more often!

                                  This dryer has great features especially the steam refresh option. We have cut down our ironing time because of this feature. The only problem I have is that I don't have a high efficiency washer, so my clothes are wetter than they would be if I had one. That increases the dry time.

                                    I have really enjoyed my new Maytag dryer. It is quiet and does its job quickly and well. I really like the wrinkle free feature that tosses the clothes around often enough to actually work at keeping wrinkles at bay until I can get the load folded.
