This dryer was purchased as a set with the matching top load washer. This replaced a Maytag dryer we had purchased from Abt and used, with only a few minor service calls, for more than 18 years. Many folks said any appliance you buy today will not be as good as what you had. So far we are absolutely delighted with this new pair. They work flawlessly, even better than our old units, and are high efficiency. I hope that we and these machines will be around in another 18 years. If so I will provide a follow-up report. Abt's super delivery/installation team did a careful and conscientious job. Abt delivers and installs with its own fleet of trucks and its own trained employees--not a-paid-per-unit independent contractor. The installers know they are ambassadors for the company, and that makes a difference.

My wife and I bought the washer/dryer pair of Bravos XL machines a couple of weeks ago. While we absolutely love the washer, the dryer leaves much to be desired. We bought the dryer for its "HE" rating to dry our clothes with less energy. We have yet to find a smart (HE) setting that actually drys our clothes--no matter what cycle we choose the clothes always come out very damp. Additionally, the smart cycles do not allow you to adjust any settings; if you want to run the "Bulky" cycle to dry a comforter you'd better be ok with "tumble dry warm" because you cannot change it to low. What this all means is that we have reverted to using the "timed dry" setting which is nothing more than setting the temperature and the time of the dry--just like our old non-HE dryer. The Bravos XL washer is highly recommended, but if you are looking for energy savings from your dryer I would stay clear of the Bravos XL dryer.

Comments about Maytag Bravos XL HE White Gas Dryer:
This is the first new dryer I have bought---ever! I love how the cycle automatically adjusts to how wet the clothes are and dries them accordingly. I have also used the steam feature and my coat came out wrinkle free, an added bonus. The only drawback that I've found was that a shoe got stuck and then the dryer stopped working within the first month...but we just located the reset button and all was well, no problems since then---runs strong.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Only had it a couple weeks, and so far I love it!!

Bought the dryer April 2015 and glad I did! All dryers need good airflow (vent) to dry clothes effectively. This dryer checks and displays the airflow status. Reminds you to clean the lint trap. Turns on when you open the door, set to your last setting. But most important, it dries clothes! My neighbors raved about their Maytag. When my washer goes I will be buying a Maytag. A lot of other great features. Only downside is the adjustable legs are plastic and can be damaged easily.
Fast dry !

I bought this Maytag dryer to replace my old Maytag dryer.It dries but sometimes leaves clothes just a little damp causing them to wrinkle a lot unless I take them out immediately and lie them flat. :(
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

I didn't really need to replace my old Maytag dryer but recently bought a high efficiency washer and chose to upgrade my dryer. I love the features and tend to use more of them than I did with the old one. I really like the wrinkle free feature.

Machine turns on with lots of bell noise. Hate that the machine defaults to the on setting. The default should be to off. I will turn it on when I want, not every time the door opens. Hate the bell tune, very annoying every time the door opens. Wrinkle free really means still damp. Using time dry cycle 98% of the time. Doesn't turn off when cycle is complete, always some light blinking. Wish it were a nice old timed dryer, don't want or like most of the doo daads. Also takes at least 30 minutes more drying time to get the towels dry. The machine is very good looking, unfortunately I"m the only one who sees it, so it really doesn't matter. I think this machine was designed by people who seldom do their own laundry.

This unit paired with the washer is an energy sipper and dries amazingly. I really enjoy the steam fresh feature.
