I've only had this dryer for a little over a month, so I really haven't played around with all the features yet. It holds a lot of clothes, it's very quiet, and it looks really cool in my laundry room. I stacked the dryer on top of the washing machine. I don't think I would do that again. Actually thinking about un-stacking them. I also do not know if it has saved me any money, since I am on a budget plan for my utilities. All in all, I really like the dryer. Wrinkle prevent is a must. For some reason, my pants were getting very tangled in the washer and I needed the extra wrinkle release. Can't wait to try some of the other features, especially the steam ones.

I've had this dryer for about 6 months - I was impressed with Maytag's quality ratings, but . . . I cannot dry a set of sheets all at once. I have to do the pillowcases, then the flat, then the fitted - and they're still horribly wrinkled - even with the wrinkle prevent cycle. I've been doing laundry for more than 40 years, and this is the 1st time I've ever had this problem. If it hadn't been so expensive, I would sell it in a garage sale.

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

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 Brighton, MI, United States
I love the new dryer with all the options to dry and steam articles. It works fantastic
Amazing style and a work horse
from Newport Beach, CA, United States
I read all the reviews and looked at all highly recommended machines. This was the best and out preformed expectations.
Steam Feature is Awesome!
from Douglas, MI, United States
When I purchased this dryer last month, I wasn't sure how much I would use the steam feature. Since then, I use the steam feature several times a week. It's a great way to refresh clothes without re-ironing. The huge drum means that clothes dry quickly, with few wrinkles. You have to be careful not to lean against the front when reaching into overhead cabinets, otherwise it turns itself on. A small annoyance compared to the many great aspects.

I really like this product. It dries quickly and offers a lot of settings. Love the steam feature
Fast gas dryer
from Mission Viejo, CA
About Me Frequent User
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.
