Top Features

Evenly Dries Your Largest Loads3*

Advanced Moisture Sensing provides even drying for your large loads.* *Based on testing of an 18-lb load.

Maytag® Commercial Technology

Every Maytag® Bravos XL® or Maytag® Bravos X™ dryer features long-lasting, commercial-grade components for your home. MCT components found in all Bravos XL® or Maytag® Bravos X™ dryers include a durable high-performance motor and a 5-rib dryer belt.

Advanced Moisture Sensing

Our high-efficiency dryers use Advanced Moisture Sensing to keep your largest loads evenly dried4. Sensors keep a keen eye on air temperatures and moisture levels to deliver exceptionally even drying every time.

Additional Features

Enhanced Airflow Monitor

These dryers are capable of venting up to 100 feet. The Enhanced Airflow Monitor automatically checks venting performance to maximize results at the start of every cycle, then provides a convenient visual display. See the installation instructions for additional details.

100-foot Vent Length for Flexible Venting

The extended length and 4 exhaust connection options provide increased installation flexibility.

Auto Refresh Steam Cycle

Smooth out wrinkles and reduce odors in as little as 15 minutes. A fine mist is sprayed into the heated dryer drum as it tumbles to create steam. The cycle ends with a brief cool down period.

High-Efficiency Dryer

With Advanced Moisture Sensing technology, this high-efficiency dryer saves nearly 40% of the energy* by stopping clothes when they're dry and not prolonging the cycle, delivering optimal efficiency. That equates to over $1,000 in energy savings over the course of its lifetime**. *Compared to pre-2004 traditional electric dryers. **Compared to traditional dryers, electric models only, based on average use, 12-year average life, when paired with a Bravos® XL washer.

7.3 Cu. Ft. Capacity

7.3 cu. ft. capacity provides enough space to evenly dry your large loads.

Wrinkle Prevent With Steam Option

Don't let wrinkles cramp your style. With the Wrinkle Prevent option, the dryer continues to tumble your clothes after the cycle has ended. It's a no-heat way to help prevent wrinkles from setting in.

Direct Y-Connector Water Hook-Up

A Y-connector delivers water from the cold water inlet directly to the dryer. It eliminates the need to fill a reservoir in dryers that feature steam-enhanced cycles.

Bravos XL® High-Efficiency Electric Steam Dryer 4.8 5 779 779
Top Performer Features are endless with top notch performance! Large capacity turns 7 kid's Laundry into a walk in the park! December 24, 2013
The Washer has excellent capacity, but I was disappointed in the noise level. I have always had Maytag washers and dryers. I am pleased with my purchase, but I would have expected the washer to be quieter due to new technology. December 20, 2013
Nice capacity Love the capacity of clothes this holds. BUT, you can't wash shoes, bookbags etc etc in these. You can, but they won't be clean. The dryer is nice if you don't mind wrinkles. Our pants, no matter what material they are, come out wrinkled! I have tried everything that has been suggested. I do like that i can get all of my laundry done in half the time, and with half the water usage. So....aside from the ironing i now have to do and having to take certain things to my mothers to be washed.....the set is GREAT! November 26, 2013
Excellent Dryer!! We purchased this dryer with the washer, it has great capacity and sensor level works great. I have been drying all my laundry under "normal" and it has been getting everything dry. The dryer does adjust the timing, it normally starts at 38 minutes and have seen it adjust all the way down to 20 min for lighter loads. It is a very quiet dryer, close the laundry room door and it doesn't sound like you are doing laundry at all!! April 8, 2012
Easy laundry I was hesitant to buy this set at first but after speaking with some knowledgeable people decided to go for it. The features are great and the addition of steam helps a lot when I don't want to iron my pants in the morning. The only thing that's not great about the steam function is that it works best when there is only one item to de-wrinkle. Overall it's a great dryer with great capacity, you just need to pay attention and make sure you select the correct drying mode or your laundry won't dry correctly, such as not using "normal" to dry your towels. The music at the end of the cycle is also pretty cool and not annoying like the typical dryer alarm. October 29, 2013
dislike the modifiers I bought this dryer to replace a Maytag Neptune that had similar features. I didn't realize until it was too late that you cannot change any of the preset modifiers which I could do with the Neptune. For instance - on delicate the preset dries on extra low but the load is never dry and barely damp dry. On my old machine I could have changed it f rom extra low to low. I end up having to dry most of my loads on time dry which defeats the purpose of paying all that money for a "smart machine" Another example is towels - it automaticaly goes to high - however with new quick dry towels it is recommended that they be dries on medium. October 29, 2013
Best dryer I've ever had! This is the best dryer I've ever had. I love the features which allow you to cut back on drying time by sensored drying cycles. This saves not only time but also money. I also love the steam features which cut back on ironing and also the wrinkle prevent cycles that keep tumbeling at intervals until you can get to the dryer to remove your items. This features doesn't allow stuff to sit and wrinkle before you can remove them. I am so happy I went the extra dollar and got this dryer. It is worth every penny!!! November 18, 2013
Meets all my needs. I have never had such a nice dryer and love all the features it has to offer. Dries the clothes in such a short time compared to my last dryer. December 11, 2013
Laundry is no longer a chore! Well it was time to get a new washer and dryer. We didn't want to. But we had to. We looked at a bunch of different models and the Maytag Bravos had the most features for the price. Having owned my previous units for quite some time, I never realized on what I was missing out on. Laundry is no longer a chore! It's a very high tech unit that gets the job done quickly and easily. Did I mention the steam dry option. For someone who hates to iron, its the bomb!!!! I highly recommend this machine. BTW...I NEVER right product reviews! November 12, 2013
The Product has great features I love this washing machine. My only complaint is that alot of the cycles take over an hour. I love that it measures the load itself. I wish the dryer was little more quiet, but it is tons better than our old one. Overall, this is a great product and I love the allergen/ sanitizing features on the pair! It is also super easy to clean the washer. The light comes on that you need to clean it and it even has a cycle for it. You just throw in an affresh tab and that's it. It smells really good as well. November 12, 2013
THIS PRODUCT HAS AVERAGE FEATURES I have always used Maytag appliances and NEVER had any problems with their performances. Very seldom had to call a repairman----maybe after using them for 10 plus years. After 6 months the control panel needed repair; then 6 more months same thing needed repaired again. It is clear that better quality control is need for MAYTAG APPLIANCES. November 26, 2013
Large capacity and is a terrific dryer! Dries fast and is large capacity! The only rhing i can say that i was unhappy about is the steam option. Unless it is a small item the steam does not penetrate enough for smell to be removed but i know its killing germs and thats whats important. I pulled an item out half way theouh and it was too hot to touch during the cycle. The wrinkle out feature has never worked on any dryer ao that did not surpise me. November 20, 2013
Best dryer I have ever owned I love both washer and dryer. Thank you for making a quality product. December 8, 2013
Love the steam feature! Replaced a 13 year old dryer. I did not know what I was missing. I was especially pleased with the large capacity. Handles comforter as easily as sheets. The steam feature removes wrinkles quickly. I am very pleased. November 30, 2013
Not real happy with performance I find the fact that you cannot select a water level poor. Additionally the lights that stay on wen the machine stops can only hasten the failure of the electronics. The length of each wash cycle is far too long and the noise level is non-descript. With regard to your dryer I find it odd you haven't provided the capability to set ones own time for drying a product . We have been Maytag users for years and are truly disappointed to find that units costing over $1,200/ea don't perform as well as older models. November 6, 2013
The Maytag Dryer is the most ergonomic Dryer my wife and I have ever seen. Excellent Design!! My wife and I have always liked Maytag Washerss and Dryers, however this Bravos XL has all the fine Drying features + Steam. It's height is perfect for ease of loading and removal of Clothing items. The complete set of drying and steam features at its price makes sense. And no need to purchase additional stand piece saves money, as the Dryer's height and width is perfect for application position and use. Smart, Excellent Design work by Maytag!! November 12, 2013
I love my drying features, delicates to bedding. This dryer dries so much faster.. I love the time it has saved me. December 5, 2013
Lots to love I have literally had a Maytag all my life. My parents had a Maytag throughout my childhood, and once I got married, my grandmother bought us a set for our wedding. We have been married 25 years now and I have just now had to replace them! The only reason I gave the features and performance 4 instead of 5 stars is becasue the steam dry doesn't work very well. One of the reasons I went with this higher end was becasue of the steam feature - clothes are still wrinkled when they're finished. Otherwise it is fabulous! November 2, 2013
steam feature not up to par the steam feature does not perform as well as other dryers with the same feature. That was the one thing that was important to me. December 1, 2013
Large capacity, very quiet, dry's quickly This electric dryer is an excellent product. The capacity is large enough to do several towels (12 or more) without any over loading. The dryer runs extremely quiet. It cleans very quickly. It has an excellent moisture sensor allowing the dryer to run less time. It is energy efficient because our electric bill is lower. The steam feature has a water hose hookup so you do not have to add water when using this feature. November 13, 2013
Great dryer Dryer is easy to use and clean. The actual drying takes less time than I expected from reading the ratings. I love the selection dial for sheets, towels, etc. My clothes are even less wrinkled! November 27, 2013
Love the capacity! Being able to dry a king size down comforter in my own home is wonderful! December 1, 2013
nice machine works great works good would recommend to others and quiet and effient December 1, 2013
I absolutely LOVE my new Maytag Bravos This is the first time that it is enjoyable to do wash. I love the musical tunes that it plays and even though this machine has many "Bells and Whistles" it is very easy to understand and use. November 25, 2013
Best dryer I have had I like this dryer so much I am buying one for my brother's family. The sensors make drying easier than ever. My clothes come out soft and in great condition. It doesn't overheat clothes. I really like the different programs and temperatures for different types of clothes, towels, sheets, eco-cycle, etc. Things have a slight tendency to get balled up in this machine. Love the large drum capacity. The lint screen seems a little skimpy. I clean it once or twice during a drying cycle to encourage proper airflow. October 29, 2013
The best dryer I've owned The Maytag Bravo XL is an outstanding dryer with some really great features. Maytag has taken doing laundry to another level. Maytag appliances have the best features I've seen on a dryer. Maytag makes a super quality product, and I'm very pleased. Thank You, John Gardner, Indiana November 20, 2013
This product dries quickly I have had this dryer for over six months and I love it! It dries my clothes very quickly and the wrinkle control feature helps when I can't unload it right away. With all the settings, I can easily adjust it to exactly what I need for the clothes I am drying. Big, bulky loads dry in just one cycle. The only negative is that there is no way to adjust the settings for a new/different cycle without shutting off the machine and turning it back on, or at least I haven't figured how yet. October 31, 2013
I'm obsessed with my dryer! This dryer goes above and beyond the normal dryer duties! Not only does it dry cloths, but it steams, freshens, and is almost silent! On top of that it is huge but not bulky. I can fit so much in this thing!!! But it's stylish and looks great in my country home and you can even put the dryer door on the side that is convenient for you. The steam feature is probably my favorite. I rarely have to iron or go to the dry cleaners anymore! It's my first dryer purchase and I won't ever buy another brand! October 29, 2013
The dryer that thinks for you! I have had this dryer for only about a month now, and I just love it! This dryer does the thinking for you, and as you get older that is a good thing! You just set the dial to the appropriate setting and the drier does the rest. It senses the level of dryness and adjusts itself accordingly. If the initial time it chooses doesn't quite dry the garments enough, it readjusts the time to continue until the proper dryness has been achieved. I didn't think that I would ever use the steam feature, but I have already used it once for a load of clothes that I didn't get to as soon as the dryer shut off. My grandchildren like the "tune" that it plays. This was definitely a great choice when we needed a new dryer - we have always had Whirlpool laundry appliances and have been more than happy with them, so it was a bit difficult to change brands - you know what they say about teaching an old dog new tricks?! But after reading many reviews about the Maytag Bravos washers and dryers, my husband and I decided to make the change. We also purchased the matching washer (I am a fanatic about things matching), and I will also be giving that a 5 star rating! February 23, 2013
Couldn't ask more from a dryer Having the matching large capacity washer, I needed a dryer that could handle the large loads from the washer. So far it has preformed wonderfully with the exception of a few melted spots. It seems the dryer gets very hot on the "more dry" option and can melt small circles into plastic/spandex/rayon type fabrics. Other than that it dries even a full load of towels. November 11, 2013
