Love the large capacity of this dryer. You do have to be careful though, I washed and dried the covers on my sofa which is a microfiber and got a waffle pattern where the top part of the dryer melted the fabric a little. User error though, I should have set it to low heat. So far so good though. Very efficient dries most loads on the normal cycle which is set to 38 min. Lint screen seems flimsy but time will tell if it's going to hold up. Like all front loaders you do have to remove large comforters/bedding to reposition and make sure the middle dries better. I think this dryer gives you a chime to remind you do to that though which is nice. Love the look of the washer dryer combo. I do have mine stacked and I don't like the transition from washer to dryer. I thought they would sit flush when stacked but they do not due to the tapered bottom edge of the dryer and the flaired top edge of the washer it's sitting on. When stacked it is difficult to read the dial, I am 5' 4" tall - average height. Overall, I'm very pleased with my purchase and the capacity of this set! Set is a little pricy but for me worth it. I can get more laundry done in one load and it doesn't take me all day to wash clothes with my growing family = growing messiness. Very "pretty" machine though - I have the graphite color I think. I like the easy touch buttons. Just need to be careful if you brush against the machine while walking by or moving laundry in or out. love that you can stack them to make better use of space in the laundry room. The washer/dryer doors open opposite right now but I think I can switch the dryer door to open to the other side, which I plan on doing when I have time. Need to check the book on that one though!

When I choose a drying mode, the selection does not necessarily dry the clothes as selected. Example: I choose "wrinkle control", it automatically gives me "low temperature" and "more dryness", but then the dryer stops and the waistbands or any thicker area on the item are still damp. I don't understand why the dryer doesn't sense the dampness. My 20 year old Maytag dryer that is still working, never ended the load without sensing the dryness of the clothes. (and my 20 year old Maytag dryer still works fine, but I thought the new dryer would be superior...it's not)

Bought 2 years ago - now grinding motor noise
from Pensacola, FL
Comments about Maytag Maxima XL HE Granite Gas Steam Dryer:
Dryer was working fine for 2-1/2 years until recently hearing a grinding sound which is coming from the motor ... It happens after running for 15 minutes - then it gets really noisy and have to shut it off until it cools down ... Single person using it approx 3 times a week
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

We had made up our mind we were going to buy a Samsung !
By mike w
from kc mo usa
We looked at another brand and the color of the Maytag caught my eye.Then I saw all the time and energy savings cycles that were available.To my surprise the price was very affordable in comparison to the other brand we we set on. The clincher was the control panel that showed not only the cycles but , the performance of the dryer while in operation. I almost left out the amazing quality. A stainless steel drum ,the lint trap with easy access, easy to use and understand controls and I installed it myself in around 30 minutes including the kit for the steam feature ( which has been a great time saver ) My wife loves it and is amazed at how quite and fast it gets our clothes dry. We bought a natural gae unit and it had to be converted to Propane which was done by the store we bought it from for a small fee. our clothes dry so fast now compared to our last one we will save not only time but more important money. It dries our clothes in at least in half the time.making wash day alot shorter
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
Could be better
from Topanga, CA, United States
I purchased the dryer several months ago to replace the original Maytag Neptune (which bankrupted Maytag. Whirlpool bought the label and resdesigned the washer and dryer). The main downside issue is that when sheet and other large objects are placed in the dryer, they end up bundled into on large roll and the materials on the inside do not dry. This was not an issue with the original Maytag but is a real downside to this one. If you don't dry things multiple times and let it sit, you end up with mold. If this were to be fixed, the unit would be a 4-5 star.
Love this dryer and all the features

propane conversion next to impossible
Buyer beware! Your nice new dryer will take hours of frustration for even the most experienced to disassemble to install a basic conversion kit. Every screw will come out and the entire dryer taken apart. There are no manuals for this. SO poorly designed! Take photos as you go to help with reassembly. Can't believe this is a Maytag product.
Works fine but not commercial grade.
from Kitchener, ON
As far as function and features this drier has no problems. The issue arises in quality control. The drum of the drier was or became out of round within months which caused a racket with spinning. Warranty covered its replacement. Sound level rating below is without the out of round drum.
from California, United States
This dryer has been great! The static reducer works wonderfully, I hate dryer sheets so this has been a great alternative. I love having the delicate option and the ability to change the heat and dryness level depending on what clothes I'm throwing in.
Great product for the investment. Would certainly purchase again
from Ogden, UT, United States
My wife loves all functions of this dryer, it drys clothes quickly and efficiently. As our washer / dryer is above my downstairs office, I personally love the fact that the combination of both Maxima XL Washer / Dryers that we purchased are whisper quiet. No more house rattling!
We Love it..
from Lexington Park, MD, United States
We've had it for about 5 months, we love it. It's so quiet and quick; lot better than our last one..
