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.

This Maxima 8000 dryer is replacing my 3 year old Kenmore I sold with my last house. I researched all brands of washer/dryer sets before settling on the Maytag Maxima 8000. My final decision was between Maytag and LG. I had an LG HE front loader washer in my last house and I LOVED it. Finally, when it came to price and features, Maytag slightly beat out the comparable LG (because I purchased from Costco- at Lowes the prices were comparable between the 2.) I have the Maxima washer and dryer set with pedestals. First, the Pro's: The dryer has an excellent capacity. It is extremely quiet. And I like that the steam feature is a direct connect to the water line, so you do not need to fill a dispenser each time you need to utilize this feature. The settings are average, and easy to read. As other reviewers noted, the time indicator is approximate. For example, it may read you have 40 minutes left. If you are drying a mixed load, and pull out the dry items with a few damp items left the dryer will not readjust the time setting. My verdict is still out on how energy efficient this machine is- and also how effective the moisture sensor is. Some loads seem overly dry. Some finish still damp. This does not vary when I use the normal dry or the extra dry setting. So, I'm not sure how it is working. A big negative, my dryer was delivered with a black oily dust coating the interior of the drum. I wiped it out with a dry cloth, yet it still remained. I used a mild soap detergent and it appeared it had gone away, but after I dried my first load of laundry I see that it is still there. I have no idea what this is all about-- but you certainly do not expect to have to clean out a $1200 dryer before first use. Also, the drum has a long dent on the interior. Something that could not have happened during delivery, but only during manufacture. The above issues were not expected with an appliance proudly manufactured in the USA. Other than that, the dryer appears to work fine. I purchased the coordinating dryer pedestal which is nice. When the drawer pulls out it has a shelf on it to rest the laundry basket. I agree with the other reviewers that it would be nice to be able to save one or two custom settings as I was able to do with my LG washer. The steam feature is nice, and it does release wrinkles. Other than the large capacity and steam feature, there is nothing that is truly amazing about this dryer. It is simply average and run of the mill. I only purchased it to coordinate with my new Maxima 8000 washer.

Awsome DRYER!!!

By 

from Orlando, FL, United States

Comments about Maytag Maxima White Electric Steam Dryer:

I bought my dryer a couple of months ago and LOVE IT!!! It's extremely quiet and I absolutely LOVE the "REFRESH" cycle!! If I want to wear my jeans "Again" or a favorite shirt, they always come out looking like they were just cleaned!! My teenager used to run the dryer for 30 mins to refresh a shirt or favorite pants if they were a little wrinkled from his drawer, now I know I'm saving on my energy bill! The allergy cycle is a HUGE plus for me too!!

This is your machine!

By 

from Newkirk, OK

Comments about Maytag Maxima White Electric Steam Dryer:

I have four children, they are in multiple sports, my laundry room is forever buried in practice gear, work out gear, school clothes, play clothes and mine and my husbands business clothes, and this machine handles it all! From the sweaty socks, to my delicate blouses. It holds large loads, its quiet and easy to use. This is the machine for an active family!

By 

from Nashville, TN, United States

Comments about Maytag Maxima White Electric Steam Dryer:

The dryer is a very good unit. it does the thankless job of getting my clothes dry, it does it fast, and it does it well. This is hardly a knock on Maytag, because all manufactures are poor at user interface / human factors, but the controls on this thing are not intuitive, not simple, and require too much fiddling to change.
