Maxima® High-Efficiency Gas Steam Dryer 4.7 5 99 99
Discontinue model. If you can find a new one now - buy it! I bought this machine becuase it is on clearance due to discontinue model. Home Depot maked down to $809 on Feb 2013. But I end up buying from Lowes becuase they match the price and giving a free next day delivery. Maxima model used to be a top of the line of the Maytag. After using for couple months, here is my review. The small patical like baby sock will stuck in between the ruber sealer. To solve this I will have to put them in the cloth bag. If you use the liquid/powder detergent on the loading basket, you will be fine. But with a new style liquid ball that you have to place them in the tank, it will spin out and stuck in the rubber sealer. To solve this I have to wet them for five minute before puting the cloth in. I do not have any problem with the factory smell. I use the Affresh tablet that came with the machine for the first run. After every load, I always leave to door open to make sure the moisture is out, inside is dry. Over all performance is good. Clothes look clean. Less drying time. April 1, 2013
excellent capacity This is a great drier! It's huge capacity and special features like the auto refresh and timed drying option are particularly appealing. Since my laundry area is on the first floor I really wanted a drier that was quiet, and though this drier is quieter than most, it's still pretty noisy. The biggest downside to this drier is the price. It's expensive, but if it lasts longer than all the driers I've had than the price is definitely worth it! September 28, 2012
We love it! We love our new washer & dryer. We have the gas dryer and it works great, drys clothes much quicker than our old Kenmore. I like the wrinkle prevention option for when I can't get to unloading right away. My only complaint is the dial knob on the front - our washer & dryer sit in the main pathway to our garage, so we have lots of traffic going through. Since the knob protrudes out over an inch, it gets whacked a lot. I'm afraid this may be vulnerable to breaking someday. I wish it were more recessed. Given this is my biggest gripe, you can see that overall this is a nice dryer! Especially considering the sale price and rebate we got with it! February 25, 2013
Love the product. Had a Maytag that was 35 yrs old loved it too. I have always loved Maytag washer and dryers. I had one for thirty five years and it was still working fine. wanted to update my laundry room. November 25, 2012
steam gas drier The capacity of this drier is good. You can dry 10 bath towels in under on hour! I hate ironing - the steam feature on this drier has taken care of that for me September 27, 2012
Not disappointed After too much time researching what to purchase to replace my 14+ year old Maytag Neptune, I decided to stay with the Maytag brand. A little time searching, I purchased the Maxima 6000 series washer and dryer. I have been completely satisfied with my choice. The biggest decision we made was to stay with gas instead of electric. we always loved how fast the old dryer heated up and dried our laundry. This has proven to be as pleasing for us and using the auto sense feature dries a complete load in 20 to 30 minutes. Love the large drum, settings are easy to find and adjust. Once again Maytag has met and exceeded expectation. February 24, 2013
Great for large loads. As a busy mom with five small children I needed something dependable and had a large load capacity. It has many other features that I have not had a chance to use. The only drawback so far is I need a bigger basket to get all the clothes out. November 19, 2013
My Maytag dryer operated without any problems. Been great. Installation of my Maytag dryer was simple and could be done by nearly any Do it yourself individual. It has functioned incredibly well and without any issues. I would recommend this dryer for it's quiet operation and dependability. Clothes come out completely dry as expected and the available drying times are plenty. On top of the above, it seems to use less gas and is more proficient on the side of cost to operate. Would recommend to all my friends. October 31, 2013
