I've been very content with this dryer. It dries clothes fast, and mostly effectively. I only have two complaints - the moisture sensor does not seem to operate well with small loads. Those will consistently come out still damp at the end of the cycle. So I run those through on a timed cycle instead and have no issues. Normal sized loads of clothes come out just fine with the sensors. And the buzzer is fairly quiet. It sounds like a video game chirping, and that's nowhere near enough volume for me to hear it upstairs since the dryer is in the basement. So I need to keep an eye on the clock. But otherwise? Seems to be money well spent. Definitely efficient, and the large capacity is great. Definitely recommend it.

There are plenty of good features on this machine. The add a garment is one perk that not many other upright machines can boast. My biggest issue is with stain removal. It doesn't remove stains. I intended this to be my washer/dryer set for the next several years. I also intend for my family to grow during that time. The capacity is great but I don't want to waste time treating stains over and over again. I've followed directions per the machine, stain removal sprays and the items tag directions and I've NEVER had a more frustrating time trying to remove stains over and over.

The dryer is very big and quiet. Not all clothes dry evenly it seems because of the window.
from pittsburgh, pa
Very solid product, if a little pricey. I have had it about three months, have not yet used every setting. Clothes are less wrinkled than other dryers I have used. Steam settings take a little getting used to but I like it. My only complaint is that I wish the cycles were a little more customizable - for example on the 'Normal' cycle, I cannot change the setting to 'low heat'. In the scheme of things this is pretty minor, however, and I can just use a different setting.
This product has been a little disappointing.
from Branchburg, NJ
The sensor does not seem to work as well as I would have thought. Large items get balled up and something in the middle usually ends up still being damp when the dryer is done. Loads with small items are all dry before the dryer is done. I thought with a sensor there would be more accuracy. I do not like that the dryer turns on if you just stand in front of it when not going to use it. I have to keep turning it off...too sensitive I guess.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

This is our third Maytag washer/dryer over the last forty years and we love them. I would have liked to have a gentle cycle on this one. We chose for low energy, high performance and sound levels. we have been happy in the three areas.

The dryer is no longer my laundry day hold up. This dryer is fast.
My third set of Maytag washers and dryers
from Westlake Village, CA
Great machines. Bought the second set of front loaders this fall. Still no problems with the first set of front loaders still in service at my home in AZ. Bed sheets get a bit rolled up in a ball during drying. Other than that, great value for the money.
I couldn't be happier
This is a great machine! We have been pleased with our purchase
Great Dryer, All the features you would ever need.
We bought this dryer about 3 months ago and could not be happier. The steam feature is great and the choice of drying cycles fits all our needs. It is well designed and sleek looking. Noise level is very good.
Excellent quality dryer. Dial Design issues.
from BR, Florida
Dial is too loose and should have arrows on it Bc it does not work as efficiently as it should when you're setting the feature. Also I have my dryer stacked making it harder to set the features, especially Normal at the top and the bottom spot, which both require more than one turn to pass, making it difficult to count To the other settings and difficult to see if the light is lit on the settings you are seeking.
