This product replaces a 40 yr old Kenmore electric dryer. Most of the features on the old dryer are the same on this new Maytag (dryers really haven't changed much in 40 yrs). I liked the old dryer and so far I like the new. I installed it (which was very straight forward and easy) and have used it for about 1.5 months I wanted to switch to gas and got the HE version so I could get a rebate from the gas company. It dries in about half the time as the old dryer. This newer product is lighter in weight than the old Kenmore, which was built like a tank, but should do the job. In the installation, I used a 4' flex tube install kit and 6' flex tube (4") venting install kit that has 2 - 90 deg swivel connectors.

Large capacity - heats up nicely. Doesn't seem to be anything special. Energy Saver settings seem to force the machine to take longer to dry. The real issue - really loud. Our laundry room is next to our kitchen -- and when this thing is on... it is LOUD. And it is supposed to have a noise package on it to quiet it a bit. To ABTs credit... they came out and checked it.. and said it was normal. Because of ever increasing thin and cheaper materials - the new normal. UGH. And, repairman said he recommends using... the basic old settings. So you might not need the upgrade to this model for the energy saving options.

ABT is great, we originally ordered a "high efficiency model that was like watching paint dry we got this because it was more normal, good decision. Delivery was prompt and efficient and the machine in good shape.

Sturdy replacement for our old dryer

I would have preferred a door that is hinged on the bottom, instead of the side.Drying times are fast, even on low temps

This is a wonderful dryer. It has amazing options, that I admit, I am still exploring. It is energy efficient and so far, everything comes out perfectly.
Wonderful Clothes Dryer
from Berwyn, IL
This dryer works more efficiently than the Whirlpool dryer it replaced. The 60-minute timed drying cycle is greater than the 50 minutes possible on the old unit. The drum is spacious enough to dry large loads such as blankets. Works great!
The delivery/installation team was courteous, efficient, and careful to avoid any damage to the item and walls.
Perfect basic dryer

About Me Heavy Duty User
I wanted a dryer that dries my clothes--I didn't want unnecessary bells and whistles that I know I won't use. This dryer is perfect. It's simple and straightforward. It doesn't do cartwheels; it dries clothes. My old dryer was a Maytag that was in our house when we moved in 24 years ago; it was old and used when we got it, but it was indestructible. It was so great, I wanted another Maytag. Abt installed the new one in minutes and took the old one away. So easy!

The installer discovered that the dryer was 2" wider than we had expected - but was able to re-work our vent to make it fit. My previous Maytag lint filter was in the door and did not get lint all over when it was cleaned; this one does manage to leave lint when pulling the filter out of the dryer to clean it (but we are getting used to the new filter). I love the huge capacity and the efficient setting on the dryer works great!

Only use on basic clothes. Not with sweaters or any other delicates. Example, my daughters tutu dresses keep getting caught and rip by this bizzare metal peice inside. Engery effficency leaves clothes damp.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Lint trap on top of dryer is a hassle - every time it is cleaned, the whole room is filled with lint / dust!
Great service and delivery as always - one of the many reasons we always go to Abt!
