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!

Bedding and towels do not dry and you cannot override cycles
Inexplicably poor performance on this top of the line appliance. Dryer sensor does not work properly. Super noisy. Should not be housed indoors.

Fast gas dryer

Comments about Maytag Maxima XL HE Granite Gas Steam Dryer:
Gas dryer drys items very fast. The internal moisture sensor will stop the drying before the displayed remaining time if it senses the load is dry enough. Occasionally, jeans may be slightly damp while other items are thoroughly dry. The lint screen is easy to remove and clean. Internal light allows monitoring the drying process. I have not hooked up the water line to test the steam drying option. This machine is made in America!! These Maytag Maxima washers and dryers are large. I had to remove the byfold doors in order to get the 6" clearance behind the unit for the vent hose.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Great dryer easy-to-use!
This is a great dryer with the right amount of settings which are easy to use.
from Edmond, OK
This dryer out performs my 20 year-old dryer many times over. I had no expectations, as some of our newer appliances do not perform as well as older models; however, I was very pleasantly surprised with the ease of functionality and speed in which things are dried with the unit. Actually, doing laundry is no longer a chore!

Matching dryer to my washer. Full of features. The steam cycles are in several options, and the clothes refresher cycle does take the wrinkles away.
It drys clothes so fast!
from Raleigh, NC
Our previous dryer (26 year old Maytag) needed a couple cycles to dry our clothes. The new clothes washer (also Maytag) spins the clothes so much faster than our old top-loader that the new dryer doesn't have to work as hard!
Looks great. Takes a long time to dry.
I love the look of the dryer. I want to dry clothes on the lowest heat setting needed. The load of clothes is consistently not completely dry at the end of the cycle.
This dryer does an excellent job.
This may tag steam dryer is efficient quiet and cost saving.
Excellent overall dryer
from Punxsutawney, PA
Large capacity easily dries king comforter. Auto sensing features cut down on drying time and saves energy. Great dryer
Glad we got this!
We are pleased with this capable dryer. We like its performance and the many ways to choose just the right settings for one's drying needs. We decided to get a pedestal which is handy for sorting items waiting to be washed. We put colored clothes in the dryer pedestal and whites in the washer's. We would like to have the option to silence the control panel sounds which are too loud, but the end of cycle sound works fine for us. We are very happy with this Maytag dryer!
performance is excellent but a little noisier than expected
from Sioux Falls, SD
Maytag has a quality reputation and so I expect the products to perform well and last a long time.
