    I was a bit put off by all the dings and dings until I realized that you can simply turn them off. I do wish the lock/unlock sound was a bit softer, but that being said these are great machines. I love that you can fill the washer with soap and it runs several loads dispensing what is needed and that you can adjust for different types of detergent. I also love that it allows you to add a garment after you start a wash. In addition to having some nice features, both the washer and dryer do a great job of washing and drying. I am very pleased with these machines and while I wasn't crazy about the square door design, it's growing on me and I would definitely recommend these to a friend.

    I have yet to place any size load in this dryer and have it come out dry the first time. Small load, or large, sheets even, never dry on first time though. I have to set it to the timed drying, then take out some loads such as sheets and shake them out as they just ball up right away and never dry. The sensors don't work, even with a full load. I have set it on normal for lightweight items...still comes out not even half way dry. I replaced 8 year old LG's what a mistake....I have a set of Electrolux at our second home....have minor complaints about them....but this is a disaster...

              Comments about Maytag Maxima XL HE Granite Electric Steam Dryer:

              Nicely design product, but I want clothes to be completely dry when I pull them out. The sensor (like on other dryers I have owned), stops when most clothes are dry, but there are always places on the clothes that are still wet. So I need to re start the dryer. I have started using time dry and hope that I set it for long enough.

                  This is by far the best Dryer I have ever purchased. As we have a large family, we use it for several loads on a daily basis. As of yet I have not pulled out a load that was not completely dry. The capacity is great. I only give it 4 stars for sound not because it is loud, quite to the contrary it is so quiet I don't even hear it running. The alarm that tells you your load is finished is too quiet and does not have a volume control to make it any louder. I can live with that. Thanks Maytag

                      The Maytag dryer is wonderful. We purchased the matching washer/dryer. The dryer has great features allowing you to choose the optimal drying setting and temperature for whatever you are drying. We typically use the normal setting, but can easily change for bedding, delicates, wrinkle control, etc. Items are dried at a good temperature, no shrinkage or over-drying. The lint trap is easy to access and clean. The style of the washer and dryer are terrific - and the front load makes doing laundry very easy. I would recommend the Maytag dryer.

                          This dryer, at this point, is just plain great. Drys well, and as I get to know the features, it works better and better. Nicely balanced with the matching washer.

                                This is a great dryer. It dries the clothes quickly and efficiently, without overdrying them. it is easy to clean the filter. It can handle a lot of clothes, and a variety. Sometimes I mix in jeans with other clothes, and it dries them all perfectly, not too little and not too much.

                                    We love the capacity and drying time which happens to be better than reported by Consumers Report. A clicking noise developed which a call to Maytag confirmed this was not a normal sound. We found a burr in the drum which actually was pronounced enough to snag clothes. The repair facility is waiting on parts to replace the drum and the pulley system. The dryer has been in use just about one month. Let's hope that things get better!
