Seriously, this dryer is saving energy like no one's busines

This was my first gas dryer and I have to say it works like a dream! Easy to use and the sanitize cycle is the best!

I have owned this dryer since March 2012, an have actually been using it since May when I moved into the house. Since then, it has broken down FOUR times. Each time it is the same problem - a heat sensor. The first time it broke I was without a dryer for three weeks as it was such a new model the repair company didn't have the parts and I had to wait a ridiculous amount of time to schedule service calls as it seems that repair companies are extraordinarily busy.
You should know I have a five person family and do a normal amount of laundry. I also have the matching washer and have had absolutely no issues with it at all.
First time it broke - July.
Then - October - a week with no dryer.
Then again - two weeks ago. Another week with no dryer. EACH TIME THE TECHS DO NOT HAVE THE PART. SO I have to wait to have them delivered and wait for another service call.

Today, dryer not hearing again. It was fixed LAST TUESDAY. Tech replaced ALL THREE sensors this time. Did laundry today, cleaning lint trap every time as is my usual custom, and the flipping thing stopped heating. Again.

I am beside myself. I spent over 1000.00 on this dryer, seduced by all the bells and whistles and it has been nothing but a nightmare. I bought Maytag because of the reputation, and although customer service has been very nice, I really could not, in ANY way recommend this dryer. I have a ton of work clothes to wash for everyone and now have to wait til Monday to call for repair and start the whole business all over again. Maytag, if you are listening, I think I got a lemon and would like a new dryer. I will take the lowest end one you make. I just want one that WORKS.

        Excellent Dryer. Good functionality and very efficient. Only negative is that it is a bit noisy, but being in our basement not really much on an issue.

                    I bought this dryer a few months ago and it is great. I can be sure that my clothes always come out dry due to all the settings that it features. It even reminds me when the lint trap is full as I am very bad at remembering to clean it in between loads due to having to do laundry for 6 people.

                          Works very well only thing I would have liked to see in this machine is a better lent catcher. Sometime to get the lent completely clean you have to disassemble the front part of the machine. Which isn't hard.

                            I think that I have finally found a dryer that will keep up with my family! I bought this dryer with the idea that I won't have to work on it every month! With a family of 7 I am very impressed with its durability, capacity, and features!

                                        We love our new maytag bravos washer and dryer collection. The dryer is quiet and roomy and also plays music like the washer. It's stylish and the features are so cool considering the great bargain you get with purchasing this. The sanitize feature is awesome. I am very happy with my purchase.

                                            Disappointed in the fact that I bought a floor model and told it was new to find out it was a 2011 model sold to me the end of 2013, do not like that the dryer doesn't completely turn off all the lights when done with a cycle, I feel this is a energy sucker and I try to conserve energy as much as possible. Also I don't like that the door doesn't stay open all the way and wants to keep closing on me when trying to rotate a load. This is the first time I have ever bought a Maytag or a floor model....I'm not sure I made the right decision, but I wanted a machine made in the USA. So that was my main reason for buying.

                                                Clothes come out dry, but not over-dried. Sensor feature works great.
