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:
Bought approximately 1 month ago and very happy with the gas model. Amazed I didn't notice when purchased, but when installed realized it had a steam cycle which I absolutely love since it appears I may never need to iron shirts again!!!Maybe it's because it's new, but it can be a bit complicated to use, but I'm getting there on that issue. I just have to leave the instruction manual on top of it for reference. Also, given that it's located in my laundry room, it would be nice if there was a volume control on the buzzer so I could turn it up louder.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

love this dryer
from Toledo, Ohio
had my dryer for over a month and just love it . has a large drum and I love the steam cycle to refresh the clothes if I didn't get to them right away, the door opening is large and up high so its easy to get the clothes into it....so far so good!
Easy to use and now even my 13 year old is starting to do her own laundry. Does a great job drying clothes.
from Bethesda, MD
I bought this about a month ago to replace my 20 year old GE dryer that finally bit the dust. I love that there are options for the type of drying I want, and it adjusts the time automatically.
Love the Refresh cycle feature!

We have had this dryer for a few months and so far we are very happy with it. We love the Refresh cycle feature. We never have time to iron and we used to have to rewash clothes because we didn't hag them up right away a they got really wrinkly. Now we just hang then up and if I want to wear something that is wrinkly I just throw it in the dryer and put on the Refresh cycle feature. bye bye wrinkles
from Arcade NY
This is by far the best dryer we have ever owned. We made our purchase at Logels appliances in Strykersville NY this was highly recommended by sales woman Jenny. It dries the clothes the first time without over drying. The steam feature is excellent to freshen up clothes that were stored over the summer or winter. The dial turns smoothly, quietly. It is just excellent! Best part...Made in U.S.A. NOT China!!!
clothes still damp after cycle complete
The load is often damp after cycle is complete
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Review Maytag Bravos XL HE Dryer
from Logan Square, Chicago, IL 60647
I bought this because Consumer Reports rated it well and it had the features I wanted. I'm very happy I did because it performs very well.
Exactly what I was looking for

I've used every cycle including steam.Great job
This dryer is reasonably priced and also includes a steam fe
from Tehachapi, CA, United States
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.
