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.

Very dissatisfied with this dryer. I dry everything on the timed setting and adjust the heat and time. Otherwise, I have to dry each load of clothes 3-4 times to get them dry. Ex: I do a lot of 'delicate' clothes. I would have to dry them on the delicate setting at least 3 times to get them dry but I can dry them on the times setting (low heat, 20 min) twice and they are dry. This dryer is supposed to be one of the most energy efficient but 3-4 cycles on the delicate setting (50 min each) did not seem energy efficient to me. Unfortunately for me, I had the washer and dryer delivered prior to actually moving in (older house-having some work done) so I was over my 30 days to return. After being told by the salesperson at Lowes that it didn't sound like it was working properly, all the manager would do is send out a repair man. The repair man said the vent was 50% clogged. I had already had the vent checked and cleaned/blown out prior to the dryer being hooked up but called them back anyway on the repairman's recommendation. Vent checked out fine (they cleaned it out again to satisfy me) and there has been no change in the dryer. It works fine and dries great on the timed setting. If you are fine with paying this much $ for a dryer that is rated the best and has all the bells and whistles, then its a great one! Again, very disappointed! Unfortunately (again), I bought the washer and dryer and the washer is even worse!!

Does not dry towels/jeans
Comments about Maytag Maxima XL HE Granite Gas Steam Dryer:
I was excited when I bought this dryer. It has a steam cycle which I thought I would love. However, this dryer has 2 serious issues. It WILL NOT dry jeans or towels. I clean the filter screen after every drying session. Lint gets into the area around the screen. The screen filter is a very poor design. I have had my dryer for 8 months and have had to clean out the hose twice for lint clogs. Just a bad dryer. It is very expensive. I wish I had bought the basic model.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Best washer and dryer that I've ever owned. So quiet that I check to see if it's on.
Easy to use!

I bought this in August and am happy with this machine. I chose gas and really like it.
In the nick of time
By Boston Terrier Man
from Alexandria, VA, United States
I replaced my 7- year old top loading washer with the Maytag model because of the need to replace my 17 year old dryer. I am so glad that I did as I picked up two 8 week old puppies two weeks ago and I am not doing laundry every time I turn around. The washer gets the clothes clean and if they get soiled with dog waste, I can use the sanitize cycle. I also like the Allergan Cycle for my sheets as I have bad allergies.
user friendly and economical
from Teaneck, NJ, United States
i bought the stackable washer/dryer, and i find it user friendly , no noise andeconomical as well as easy to use.
from Sterling, VA, United States
I bought this dryer last month and am so very happy that I did. My laundry room was very small and stacking the MGD6000AW on top of the matching MHW6000AW was easily the best choice I've made since purchasing the home. The dryer offers many options and it is HUGE. I love the wrinkle prevent with steam, and the ability to adjust the drying time even on the sensor cycles. The sensor cycle seems to leave thicker fabrics a little damp, but I expect that since it is only going to be able to sample the overall dryness of the load. I just take them out and hang them to dry. It is very quiet and the chime when it is done is a very welcome improvement over the harsh buzzer of yesteryear. It easily fits a king size comforter, and has taken my wash loads from 4-5 per week to 2-3. I love it!!
Best dryer ever!
from Bay Area, California
Bought this a few months back and have zero complaints. It's quite, easy to use, efficient and can handle loads of all different sizes.
from Schaumburg, IL, United States
Maytag produces the best products on the market by far. I am very happy we went with a maytag product not only for the reliability of the product but also it is American Made.
Best dryer I've ever owned
from Oregon, United States
I've had this dryer for 3 months now, and am constantly greatful for how effective it is. I have been asked by friends and family to was and dry comforters, and this dryer has done it with no hesitation, despite the bulky load.
