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.

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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVE IT! This dryer is efficient, has a great capacity and has innovative solutions to problems I didn't even know I had. There is a little shelf by the lint trap that catches loose coins, rocks, pens, etc. and keeps them there so they don't get dried into the clothes. The steamer function is useful not only for wrinkled clothes but to relax cotton fitted sheets so they actually go on easily.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolute best product ever! Absolutely love it. Will never have to dry clean ever again! I love the fact that the washer and dryer have delicate cycles with steam options. I work in a corporate office and my clothing is a reflection of me. I love the wrinkle free cycle option for my laundry for my family is a reflection of me. I also have to say that both the washer and dryer have made my life simple with the rapid wash n short time to efficiently dry. I will never buy another brand.....and probably won't being buying a new washer and dryer for I know that this set will last at least 10-20 years,s but I know that I will probably have to have the next newest model.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My clothes come out perfect If I had to dream up a dryer this is the one I would dream of. No more wrinkled clothes, towels are fluffier, everything gets done in record time and it even tell you how long it will take and you can tell it to make sure that things don't wrinkle. you can even use no heat and fluff, so nice. It's easy to access just take em out of the washer and throw em into the large dryer, set the temp and drynesss you want ,close it push one button come back when it's done , no worries, no problem, its at your service. Easy to clean lint catcher, door swings like a real door, easy to use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from High capacity, dries great! While I adjusted to the high efficiency washer without much issue, I found the dryer to take a little longer. I would now say that after a month of using it that I've pretty much figured out how to get it to do what I need it to do -- dry my clothes! With that said, I was used to the turn-the-dial to get the dryer to do what I needed it to do. This is much more sophisticated. Now that I've figured out the features and can get it to do what it's supposed to do, it really is a great machine! With the large drum, I can dry large loads of clothes in a short amount of time. The sensor dry will add additional time to the cycle if need be. Love this machine!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Dries Twice As Much In Half The Time This dryer is pretty awesome. It dries twice as many clothes as my old dryer in half the amount of time. I also live the capacity. We have 3 boys and go through a lot of laundry. It's nice to just do a huge load than two medium loads. The first time I used this set, I was like "wow, that's a lot of clothes!". Now I love that! The steam refresh is awesome. Many times I can't get to the laundry right away, and that allows me to steam it in 22 minutes, and no matter how long the clothes have been in there, they won't be wrinkled. I just wish there was an actual steam cycle. But even without that, I am very happy with the dryer. It blows my old one away.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Performance is excellent! Not only are there wonderful new features on the washer like the rapid wash and the power wash, there are more controls for the spin cycle; and the option of an extra rinse cycle. The drum is huge, and the clear top is unique. The display board has lights for everything, including a reminder light for the monthly cleaning. The dryer is so fast! It takes only 38 minutes to dry a normal size load of clothes. I love the door because it starts at the front of the top so I don't need to 'pretzel myself ' to load and unload the machine. I've had Maytag products before and they served me well. Once again I'm happy to be a Maytag owner.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from 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.
