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.

We got this about two months ago. We are happy with it, but in some ways it is too smart for its own good. For instance the self balancing thing take a long time and just be easier if it would easily allow me to adjust it on my own. Also on dark colors it leaves soap residue and you are forced to select the extra rinse option to avoid this. This is with using very little of the HE soap, below what is recommended even. For how much we paid I think a older style one that was cheap do just as good of a job, the "sell" of HE and all it can do is not living up to expectations for the price.

Great features, but a few quirks

        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.

              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!

                    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.

                                            I bought this washer after purchasing a different brand 1 months earlier. It pays to spend a little more for a lot more product. It's quiet,easy to use and holds a lot. I love this dryer.

                                                  So excited to move away from GE appliances!! My Mom owned her Maytag for 37 years before she had to replace it. I'm hoping for the same.

                                                        We had and ARCHAIC washer/dryer duo, so were very excited to check out the HE options on the Bravos dryer. It took a few cycles to figure what worked best, but we really love the steam cycles! It saves a ton of time too. Could not be happier with my purchase!

                                                              Our old Maytags finally gave up after so many years! We decided to stay with Maytag quality. Were we surprised - All new features and new efficient technology. We would not trade our new dryer for anything. My only suggestion to any buyer - read the operating manual. Once you learn about all of the technology and features, you will fall in love with Maytag all over again. We are impressed with the Maytag quality.
