I bought this dryer because my 23-year old one stopped tumbling. I bought the washer as well and that review will be posted separately. I've had the dryer for about 2 months now and it works very well. I still use the instruction booklet a bit so that I can get used to how the machine operates. I like that the lint filter is in front and easy to clean. And I like having so many options to address the different fabrics I need to dry. My clothes come out dry and in good condition.

Bought mine in April of 2015. Overall this was a "must-have" unit for my wife and I. The capacity, design and features were unmatched for us. And in dryer performance this one really shines - it definitely has prevented shrinking our clothes (like a prior unit did habitually)
However... Some real quality issues:
1) The bottom tray makes an awful noise while the drier is running unless I press on it. It's not a foot leveling issue as it's been adjusted every which way. I will have to call service on this one.
2) The lint on the lint screen gets scraped off as you pull the screen out to clean it! I've never owned a drier that was this bad about this. I don't let the lint accumulate on it either, I always take it out after every load. This issue is very concerning because there's a high likelihood that lint then falls down the exhaust chute making it likely that it will clog the flue. I will likely bring this up in a service call as well.

Love this Bravos pair

By

Comments about Maytag Bravos XL High Efficiency White Electric Dryer:

Bought the Bravos washer and dryer when we moved to our new house. They are easy to operate, work very well, have plenty of options to meet our needs, and have a large capacity. Only had a slight problem with the dryer making a rattling noise, but the rollers were replaced and a few screws tightened and it seems to be fine now. Wish we would have upgraded sooner!

Great features, but a few quirks

By 

from Oklahoma City, OK

Verified Buyer

Comments about Maytag Bravos XL High Efficiency White Electric Dryer:

We really liked this model from a feature standpoint. Excellent selection of modes, great controls and feel, high quality appearance. However, once installed we are having a few issues - an incessant buzzing noise coming from the plastic sheath on the bottom (we have tried adjusting the legs to no avail, the only thing that stops it is pressing on the sheath with a book). Additionally, I love the in-tub lint screen (vs. the messy top-of-machine type), but I have a feeling some of the lint gets scraped off on removing it, and that it falls into the machine duct (not good - I try to vacuum out what I can, but what a hassle). Otherwise performance is great - quick cycles, best drying (not over-dry, but at the same time the clothes aren't coming out damp), and outstanding selection of cycles.

Comments about Maytag Bravos XL High Efficiency White Electric Dryer:

I really didn't think I wanted a dryer with the extras, however, I also wanted it to match my Bravos washer. So glad we paid the extra money and bought this dryer. The steamer is great to clean the stuff animals my grandchildren play with and freshen up quilts. Great dryer

Wonderful Dryer!

By 

from Mesa, AZ, United States

Comments about Maytag Bravos XL High Efficiency White Electric Dryer:

The replacement dryer that replaced the original damaged deliver arrived in 1 week. Installation was installed with no problems and basic training was included. However, that's where the good points stop. The water hose for the steam option was not installed.

We were told at signing, that all required parts were included after purchase. I had to call 3 times to find out when our new dryer would be delivered. We still did not receive an answer, until my wife and daughter drove to the store and refused to leave until they received a confirmed installation.

With that being said, using the dryer for about 2 weeks does require to clean the filter screen at the start of each load. Otherwise, the dryer has the potential to stop prior to the actual normal set point ending.

The dryer is a little louder than our previous Kitchen aid model, but not overly so. The ending jingle is pretty much the same in loudness and length as well. Our laundry room us upstairs, so once the door is closed, it is not heard in any of the bedrooms unless you are in the hallway. All in all, it runs beautifully and does what it says it will. Operation is a snap with the positive door closure. The girls love the wrinkle function. They use it incessantly. A very good quality machine well worth the price. I bought it on sale and took advantage of the military discount.
