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.

Custom Refresh Steam Cycle

After selecting the number of garments to steam and pressing start, a fine mist is sprayed into the heated dryer drum as it tumbles, creating steam to help touch up loads that have been left in the dryer too long. The cycle ends with a brief cool down period.

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.

Reduce Static Option

With the Reduce Static option you can get some breathing room from static cling. Hot steam is sprayed as clothes tumble at the end of the cycle to cut down on static and send you out the door looking your best.

Steam Boost Option

The Steam Boost option adds a fine mist that is sprayed into the dryer during the cycle to create steam that helps smooth wrinkles. It may be added to most sensor cycles.

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.

Best Dryer Love everything about this dryer especially the steam option. Just got it in March could not be happier. April 1, 2014
Has great feathers Really like our new dryer but the lint holder could be better. March 25, 2014
LOVE MY DRYER!!! This has made doing laundry sooooo much fun! I love all the features this dryer has to offer! The steamer has been a life saver for when I don't have time to press something. I can just toss it in the dryer and use the steam setting and pull it out and wear it. GREAT DESIGN!!! June 2, 2012
Not steam dryer I'm pleased with it so far. I hope it holds for the time that I need it. March 14, 2014
Works very efficiently Dries the laundry load quickly and efficiently lowering energy cost February 26, 2014
Great Dryer Love this dryer. I love the look of it and the features. The only thing that is not great about it is the cycles that are supposed to sense if the clothes are dry. Occasionally I have taken the clothes out of the dryer, they are not completely dry. Instead I put them back in the dryer on the timed setting and select the temperature I want for the clothes instead. This usually solves the problem. I usually only have this problem on my husband's polo shirts. The collars are very thick and they take longer to dry. I love the refresh cycles and use them often. I like the steam options too. It is a little pricey, but it is a Maytag. It is priced in line with other dryers with the same type of features. I would buy it again! September 28, 2012
