Luv this large drum steam dryer! The sensor drying is great and clothes come out dry every time. (Just make sure that your dryer vent hose, internal hose and discharge vents are professionally cleaned prior to installing this machine. The "check vent" sensor is SUPER sensitive and the dryer shut off after only operating for one week. Was very upset at the time about the product's performance; however, I followed all the steps per the user's manual to rectify the situation was included hiring a professional dryer vent cleaning service and that was IT! WOW! Must have been over 20 years of lint and Lord only knows what else. YUCK!!!) Dryer works great and the green light next to the "good airflow" sensor is on for every load.) Please keep in mind that the machine is large--height and depth so you MUST measure your area and make sure that YOU will be comfortable in your laundry area with such a large piece of equipment. Otherwise very simple to use and the steam option is great for those of use who are ironing-impaired. ;) LUV LUV LUV the lock control buttons option. Female body parts are the same height (if you are a tall woman--my machines are on the pedestals) and when reaching into the upper cabinets those body parts tend to bump into the control buttons or turn dial; with the panel locked no worries! The door locks with a deadbolt or at least that is what it sounds like when the door locks during the cycle. Perfect if you have a tenacious and curious toddler! The bedding cycle is my fave for sheets and comforters. YES! Even the middle of the sheets and comforters are dried after the cycle chimes. I have king size bedding and there is plenty of room in the drum for proper tumbling. The lint trap is easy to clean and replace. The quiet drum is just that. I am washing tons of zippered clothing due to the weather and time of year and I really don't hear them unless I am in the laundry room and even then it is muffled.

We bought this dryer (and companion washer for the new laundry room that we built on the second floor. From the first time we used it, there was a loud banging noise when the dryer spun. Abt sent a technician out, who confirmed what we expected - that due to a manufacturing error, the drum was banging against the dryer's metal case with every spin. Abt, without hesitation, offered to replace the dryer with a new one, which they did (though, due to scheduling problems took a few weeks). When I researched the issue online, it seems this is not an isolated problem, but does occur with some frequency with this (and similar make) Maytags. Thank goodness we bought our lemon from Abt. I would be afraid to have purchased this dryer from anyone else. Finally, all that said, our replacement dryer does seem to work just fine. I am just not sure I would take the chance with this dryer again.

Clean your Vents before instalation!! **Fire**

By 

from Chico Ca

Comments about Maytag Maxima Metallic Slate Electric Steam Dryer:

Not sure how I will rate this yet. My second load throught the dryer I had a fire! Two days after moving into my new to me home the house caught on fire. The cause ended up being the the dryer vent and lots of buildup of lint in the line. I cant stress enough on cleaning your vents before you hook up your new dryer. If you think your safe do it anyways!

I just redid my laundry room and I am very happy with my new appliances. They look great and work wonderfully. I love the soap dispensing cartridge so I don't have to add detergent every load. I am very happy with them.

Comments about Maytag Maxima Metallic Slate Electric Steam Dryer:

I bought this dryer in April. It worked well for the first month but then it started to make a clanking noise. The repairman came out and fixed it for us but told me the only explanation for the broken rod the drum had was that we used it too much. When I told him we had only had it 5 months he was shocked. Anyways, he fixedbit lado week and ir ese working fine intimate two days ago. So it worked well 5 days!

This is a great dryer, especially for large loads. One thing I really like is that it gets clothes dry, not damp-dry the first time. No having to keep adding time.

On my 3rd Maytag washer and dryer. The first 2 lasted a total of 42 years for me that I know of. Maybe longer since, I left them in the house I moved from both times and they were still working when I left. Has this dryer 2 months and love it.

Small Capacity

By 

from Baltimore

Verified Buyer

Comments about Maytag Maxima Metallic Slate Electric Steam Dryer:

I thought I would love this as much as I do my Maxima washer, but I don't. Clothes don't dry very well and I have to split the washer's load in half or it turns into a wrinkled mess. In other words, it has half the capacity of its washer twin. What a pain. I've finally figured out how to compel it to dry a half load completely. Not that happy with it.

Have used all the different settings on the dryer. The steam features are new to me, and I really like them! The load size is larger than I have previously used, and it still dries efficiently.
