I love the color Granite Gray! Plan on getting many years of use from this set. My old Maytag washer & dryer were 14 years old, never had a service call on them and gave them away to another family to use.

We purchased this about a year ago along with the matching washer.

This is the noisiest dryer we've ever owned. We can't stand to be in the same side of the house as the dryer when it's running.

The repairman said its because there is no shielding or insulation.

We are replacing because we can't stand the noise.

        Comments about Maytag Bravos XL Granite Gas Steam Dryer:

        This is the 3rd dryer I have purchased since I married in 1978. I have only purchased Maytag washer and dryers since then(replaced my washer last year). Talk about savings! Each has lasted an average of 18 years!
        My favorite feature on this dryer is the steam fresh! So convenient and easy. You don't have the mess and bother of adding water to it, which is nice! I will buy another Maytag in 18 years!

              I find that when I dry off after a shower I find lint on my body. I never found this with our last dryer.

                                The unit's controls could have been improved if several women who do wash would have worked with you. This unit has many options but may be over built. Some times you just want to set the heat level and push start.

                                            I love the steam and refresher functions. Just the fix when your clothes are barely worn yet you want to make sure you have a fresh feeling and minimizing wrinkles.

                                                  I replaced my old washer and dryer with this set. Looks very modern, love the granite color, large capacity, works great, dries much faster than my old one. I have only had this dryer for a month but so far so good.

                                                        We purchased this about a year ago along with the matching washer.

                                                        This is the noisiest dryer we've ever owned. We can't stand to be in the same side of the house as the dryer when it's running.

                                                        The repairman said its because there is no shielding or insulation.

                                                        We are replacing because we can't stand the noise.

                                                              This is a very large dryer. We measured it to make sure it would fit in our laundry room but did not account for the space it needs for the hose. Our laundry room door almost doesn't open now! If it gets pushed back any then we get an alert light that the air flow isn't good and the dryer turns off. Other than that it is great!
