Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Maytag dryer and well worth the price. I have had my Maytag Centennial dryer for about 4 months and it works great and is quiet and is an energy saver. This dryer has various settings to dry all types of clothing from auto dry to air fluff. One simple push to start button along with a loud audible sound at the end of a drying cycle is a nice feature which you dont have to use if you dont want to. All things that have been dryed come out perfect from jeans to queen/king sized comforters. The lint screen is located on top of the dryer for easy access. This dryer also seems to be well built and should last along time. My Maytag Centennial Electric Dryer works great at a great price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quiet Dryer That Does the Job This dryer was a replacement for my old dryer which was 10 years old. I had purchased the Centennial Washer a year ago, so when I needed a new dryer I naturally bought the matching Centennial model. I dry everything except towels on the energy saver low-heat setting. Towels and heavier items are dried on the higher heat setting. The dryer also has a reminder alarm to tell you to get the clothes out before the end of the cycle, to prevent wrinkles. This is a good feature - I did not have this in my old dryer. This is an efficient appliance with just enough settings to get the job done. the energy saver low setting is the one I use the most.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Dryer is very adequately meeting my needs I've had my new dryer about six weeks and so far I like it. I didn't want a lot of "bells and whistles" and this dryer's settings are almost identical to my old one. Even though there are only two in my household, I like the large capacity - especially good for towels and sheets. The only problem I've encountered is that on two occasions I've had one piece in a load that was at the back of the dryer and didn't get dry. I ran the dryer about 10 more minutes and the item dried. Other than that, it seems to dry faster that my former 15-year old dryer, and runs fairly quietly. I would recommend this dryer to someone looking for a new one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This entry-level product dries clothes quickly and quietly! We didn't need a lot of features when were looking for a new dryer, so this was an excellent option. It runs quietly, has a large capacity, and dries clothes very quickly even on the lowest setting. Plus we loved that it was made in the USA!!! My only complaint is that the door is difficult to shut and open again. Many times, I have to slam the door 2-3 times to get it to close completely. But, I guess I'd rather have it be difficult to open and close than too simple to pop open and it interfere with the drying process. Also. I love how the door opens a complete 180 degrees so you can easily load clothes from either the left or right side of the dryer.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great starter model This model doesn't have all the bells and whistles, and it's doesn't have a digital dashboard but the machine performs very well for the features it does has. It dries quickly and efficiently, and the energy saver sensor stops the cycle once the clothes are dry which saves me time and electricity. The placement of and design of the lint catch is a bit primitive considering how far they have come with fancy models but it functionally works very well. The unit is quiet and doesn't ever interrupt the sound quality of our day/night. The cost and quality of this unit are fantastic. I would buy this model again if I were shopping today.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I like it so far... Does the job most of the time. Sometimes I have to run the clothes on 2 cycles but I think it might be because I have larger capacity washer. Also bought the Maytag washer. It works well. I don't like that the lid locks and that the thing seems too smart for a washer. Sometimes it doesn't spin out the load of laundry well enough and I have to fight with it a little to get it to drain and spin again. Also if you do a load of laundry and forget to move it to the dryer soon enough before it mildews and then rewash the damp clothes it might not spin all the water out well since it senses the load weight before washing, so I usually have to do a drain and spin.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid Performer, Excellent Value and Quality I am so pleased with my choice of this dryer. I looked at a lot of alternatives but found nothing that beat it for value. It does everything I need it for. It is very reasonably priced for its capacity and has plenty of features. I hate a small tub, and this one is roomy enough for a full load from my extra-large washer, also a Maytag but now about 10 years old. It is well built and sooo much quieter than the (non-Maytag) dryer it replaced. I mostly use the low heat setting, and I find that with my typical mixed load the more-dry option gets even my husband's heavy cotton overshirts dry without damaging my delicate undies. Occasionally I will have to give thick towels a little extra time, which doesn't bother me.Before I decided to buy this model I saw that at least one reviewer complained of wrinkles setting in. If I have not removed clothes promptly I give them a brief touch-up. Have never had a problem.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Maytag Dryer I bought this for my mom her old dryer was over 25 years old and my parents kept buying parts and fixing it because they couldn't afford to replace theres. This is a good standard model dryer it isn't fancy but it does the job. It has energy settings that my mom uses all the time and clothes come out nice and fluffy. My mom has never had a dryer that gets done before the washer and this one does and there are no wet spots even when drying comforters. Drum is really big and fits everything we have asked it to. It is quiet and efficient. I would recommend this dryer highly it isn't fancy but does everything we need and does it really well.
