We've had this dryer for one week now; purchased it along with the matching compact washer. The dryer works great, is very easy to use, and has great capacity given its compact size. It has a kind of retro look and feel with knobs and levers rather than complicated digital controls (that can break easily!) My only complaint is that it is noisy. Not the dryer itself, per se, but the exhaust. I hardly noticed the noise going through the dryer vent from our previous model (Maytag Neptune), but this little one really makes a lot of noise in carrying the exhaust outside. Also, it has no audible signal that the cycle is complete. Great value, excellent for a small space!

This dryer certainly does the job when you only have a small space to work with. It stacks on top the washer and has most any setting combination you could want, including sensor dry. I only wish it had a bigger capacity, but in the compact market ones choices are limmited. I question the use of both a power and start button. The power button doesn't automatically turn off at the end of the cycle. I usually forget to push it off. Other than that minor design item, this dryer certainly does the job.

Does the job
from New Paltz, NY
Comments about Maytag White Compact Electric Dryer:
Works great-very quiet. Holds more than I thought. My one dislike-the plugin cord is not that long. I had to move my outlet so I could keep the desired location.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Wish they made a gas model in the same size...
Good quality dryer. Needed a smaller unit to fit down the stairs to my basement and this was it. I wish they made a gas model in the same size.
Broke down in one month
Dryer has a part the measures the heat the sits in the back by the heating element. The parts broke within one month and when it did the appliance repair man open up the heating element door which had burn marks on it. Upon closer look the heating element had discolored the door and burn the paper work + melted the plastic pocket of the information material that is placed on the back of the dryer. No part is available. It will take until February 28 until part is in stock. Its January 18th today. Returning the product. Not recommended.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
So far, so good
from Alexandria, VA
I've had this dryer for about 3 months and it works fine. I'm still trying to figure out what the best setting is for my drying needs but it's done a fine job and has met but not exceeded my expectations. I got 5 new appliances and central HVAC and my energy usage has still gone down 30% from a year ago. don't know if I'm comparing apples to apples but 30% less is good and I'm giving credit to this and the other appliances. The front loader has given me 5 more feet of counter space, which is why I chose the front loading feature
Very noisy, drying cycle
I like the different cycles and that the dryer reverses rotation. Most clothes baskets don't fit underneath the dryer door. I've never heard a dryer that's as noisy as this one is!!!!! Maytag/Whirlpool should work on this downfall.
So Far So Good!
I recently purchased this dryer along with the matching washer and I must say that it's been a pleasant surprise. It has some great features and holds quite a bit of laundry for its petite size! I also like that it's a manual dryer without a computer board so there's less to go wrong, which may require repairs in the future. Of course there is noise when its running, but nothing out of the ordinary and is to be expected I suppose. If it were a bit quieter, I would have given it 5 stars :)
We don't have any complaints about this dryer so far.
from Bokeelia, Fl
This dryer is about the best we have had so far. We can't think of anything that we dislike about it. OH; One thing. The door would be better if it opened a bit further than 45 degree angle. Other than that we love it.
Great for small spaces
Bought this for a second home, with limited space in the mud room. Works fine, though a little noisy. my only complaint--one mentioned elsewhere--is that the sound that tell you the load is dry can't be turned off. It keeps buzzing and then turning (to prevent wrinkles, I guess) until you remove the load.
from San Rafael, CA
We have a tiny closet for the dryer. It fits nicely in there. It doesnt hold a ton but it works for us because we line dry a lot. It dries very quick and i love that it has no back vent, no need for a dryer hole. The only thing i hate is the alarm. It goes off periodically for like an hour and keeps the dryer going instead of just shutting off.
Great bang for the buck!
from Bucks County PA
This dryer is as good as the European models I've owned in the past. After spending twice as much for dryers with this footprint, with a shorter warranty and very short life span, I am thrilled with my Maytag dryer. The lint filter is a bit awkward to empty, and the dryer got much too hot at the end of a full day of heavy use - but otherwise this is very well made. I am waiting for my German-made washer to bite the dust (it's close) so I can buy the complimentary washing machine! Even though the appliance fits under a counter top, it easily accommodates a full laundry basket of clothes/heavy towels.
