Top Features

Maytag® Commercial Technology

Our dryers are built to last thanks to the Maytag® Commercial Technology we put under the hood. They come standard with a durable motor and a 5-rib belt that keeps them humming along year after year.

Advanced Moisture Sensing

These high-efficiency dryers use Advanced Moisture Sensing to save money and evenly dry loads without overdrying to help reduce the risk shrinking. Incoming and outgoing air temperatures and moisture levels are monitored using three advanced drying sensors.


Exceeding federal energy standards by 30%, these extra-efficient washers and dryers are rated Tier 3 by the Consortium for Energy Efficiency (ECC) and help to save even more money on utility bills.

Additional Features

7.4 Cu. Ft. SuperSize Capacity Plus

Auto Refresh Steam Cycle

Smooth out wrinkles and remove odors in as little as 15 minutes. Steam is introduced into the dryer drum after several minutes of tumbling at a medium temperature. The cycle ends with a brief cool down period.

Direct Y-Connector water hook-up

A solid brass 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.

Quad baffles

Four unique baffles improve movement of clothes around the drum for better drying results. They also improve the tumbling of smaller loads.

Commercial-grade glass window

Wrinkle Control Option

Designed to dry clothes such as knits and permanent press fabrics, this cycle minimizes wrinkles by providing a longer unheated tumbling period at the end of the cycle.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My dryer died after a week and a half and still isn't fixed My dryer was delivered and installed October 31, 2012. It worked great for a week and a half, about four loads, and then died...Codes E01 and F03. I called and was referred to A&E Factory Service and made an appointment for Saturday, November 23rd. I left town and my daughter told me that the appointment was cancelled and rescheduled for December 1, 2012. The technicial came and wrote a parts list, including a circuit board. My dryer still isn't fixed. A&E has no knowledge of a parts order. Another appoiintment is scheduled for December 18. I hope the technician comes and fixes my dryer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This product has great features My husband and I purchased our new gas dryer when we moved into our new home. We sought the Maytag Maxima High Efficiency Gas Steam Dryer because of its high ratings and our past experience with Maytag products. Its capacity is very large which is convenient for extra large items such linen for a king size bed and heavy loads of towels. It also allows me to set cycles to accommodate small loads, timed dry and steam cycle. What I like most about our new dryer is the flexibility to adjust settings to suit all garment types. This product has exceeded our expectations and I would recommend it to everyone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from totally satisified Maytag has been in my family for as long as I can remember. My mom and grandma both had maytag wringer washing machines and then my grandma upgraded back in the day to an automatic washer and dryer which I inherited and used for many years and have purchased others over the years. I have never had a gas dryer until now because I was told that the gas would yellow the clothes. Not true. I love this thing, its fast, no yellowing, less wrinkles and lets me know when its done and even when it is damp dry incase I want to take something out that is more delicate. Once again I am totally satisified with my new Maytag. Being a Maytag I know it will last me for a very long time, may even out last me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent capacity and drying ability We have had our new Maytag gas dryer for a month now and are totally satisfied with it at this time. It takes on a large load of clothes with ease. Clothes not only come out totally dry but also tend to be softer in feel even without the use of a fabric softener sheet. The use of the sheets tend to provide the dry clothes with a nice scent. Drying times are shorter than what I had grown accustomed to. In all I have no complaints and would highly recommend the purchase of a Maytag dryer to most anyone. An added plus is Maytag manufactures their products right here in America.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 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
