This dryer is efficient, has a great capacity and has innovative solutions to problems I didn't even know I had. There is a little shelf by the lint trap that catches loose coins, rocks, pens, etc. and keeps them there so they don't get dried into the clothes. The steamer function is useful not only for wrinkled clothes but to relax cotton fitted sheets so they actually go on easily.

We bought this dryer after reading reviews and wanting to try the Maytag brand, since it is made in the USA, after being VERY disappointed with out Samsung Washer and Dryer. Both of them shot craps at 6 years of age.
The problem I have with the Maytag Bravos XL is this, it does not come with the dryer rack. After I installed it, I was reading the use instructions and I find that this is not included. I am thinking, we just spent over $900 for a dryer with that has a steam dry option and I have to order the dryer rack for an additional $45 and that did not include shipping!!
Maytag, are you kidding me!!!!
Our Samsung, even though it did not last long, at least it came with everything we needed in order to use all of its features.
Not happy about that at all.

Bravos Dryer Reliabilty

By 

from Foster City, CA

Comments about Maytag Bravos XL High-Efficiency White Electric Steam Dryer:

I bought this dryer three years ago.
After 14 months of use it failed for heating issues (not being able to provide hot air). Since then I had 5 repairs done at a cost of $533. The last technician visit he reccommend yet replacement of a different part (recycling switch) for another $98. I have contacted Maytag customer service and they did not offer any good solution. I am very frastrated and disappointed from their response.

              We've had this dryer one month and it works very well. It has a lot of features that our old one did not. The steam feature works very good to freshen something up that has been hanging in the closet and has wrinkles.

                                I have purchased this dryer three years ago (May 2012) for $950. I was very excited about the purchase because of its size and the nice features. However, I am very disappointed with its reliability. Within three years it failed twice for heating problems. It works for a long time without hot air so the clothes come out damp. Each repair cost me $185. I am hoping that after the second repair it will last more than a year.

                                            I bought the washer and dryerl about 3 weeks ago. This dryer is such an improvement over my old maytag. things dry beautifully with few wrinkles. This new technology almost eliminates ironing. I don't use fabric softener so the dryer does the whole thing. Excellent!

                                                  We bought this dryer based on the performance of the comparable washer we purchased a year ago and have not been disappointed. It's an excellent dryer.
