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.

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.

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.

Bravos XL® High-Efficiency Gas Steam Dryer 4.8 5 189 189
Seriously, this dryer is saving energy like no one's business! This was my first gas dryer and I have to say it works like a dream! Easy to use and the sanitize cycle is the best! November 5, 2013
Good overall, happy with purchase The machine works very well and there is little to complain about, but there are a couple of minor items that can be improved. The following comments are for those who design and manufacture the product, but there is not ample space below in the section designated fot this: We would rather that the machine would not power up everytime the door is opened. We sometimes put clothing in, but do not run the machine until some time later. We were at least able to turn off the annoying sound made during power up. The silver painted edge on top of the door scratches easily. We are not rough with the machine and have no children in the house, but there are many scratches over a 6-month period. The auto refesh cycle is the only cycle which uses the steam feature, and it does not work as well as I expected. I hoped I could remove wrinkles from clothing in my closet, but the auto refresh cycle is 22 minutes and if you stop anywhere before the cycle ends, either the wrinkles are still there or the clothing may be wet. It would be nice if this were a 5-10 minute cycle. November 13, 2013
Impressive product! I think that I have finally found a dryer that will keep up with my family! I bought this dryer with the idea that I won't have to work on it every month! With a family of 7 I am very impressed with its durability, capacity, and features! March 11, 2014
Best High Capacity Top Loading Washer on the Market! For months I did extensive research trying to find a washer to replace my 1996 Kenmore direct drive which was one of the best washers on the market in 1996. It is still running at my son's house and the preventative maintenance repairman remarked that it is one of the top models of its kind. Alas, the top loading agitator washer is a thing of the past, so I began my search for a washer to replace it. Besides the top loading, the really nice features of my Kenmore were the many cycles and water levels that I could control. In addition, I really took advantage of its ability to wash a queen and a king comforter. My year long search finally yielded results in the Maytag. I was skeptical, but this washer has indeed replaced my beloved Kenmore and saves me some money to boot. It is fabulous and I do not use that word lightly for a washer. The clothes come out clean and almost dry. I have witnessed how clothes come out of a front loading washer--not up to my standards. So, this top loading Maytag fits the bill. If It lasts as long as my Kenmore--I will probably stick to Maytag from now on. October 30, 2013
I love this dryer! I bought this dryer and matching washing machine as my first specialty laundry machine every. Previously I'd always had the old agitater style, so this is like a Rolls Royce to me. I love the enormous capacity, it dries quickly (I have gas model) and the sweater/shoe rack is awesome! It's fun to have the glass door, too, though I do think that even with the drum light on, it's sort of still too dark to see what's going on inside. It is a VERY large machine, though, and it was nearly impossible to get into our 1975-style laundry room (which is about the size of a small hall closet!). The delivery guys were amazing and literally took the drier apart and reassembled it in the laundry room in order to get it set up. Very much appreciated indeed. I do love this machine ~ it looks great, sounds great, and dries great. December 6, 2012
I would have loved to give this a five-star review BUT I have owned this dryer since March 2012, an have actually been using it since May when I moved into the house. Since then, it has broken down FOUR times. Each time it is the same problem - a heat sensor. The first time it broke I was without a dryer for three weeks as it was such a new model the repair company didn't have the parts and I had to wait a ridiculous amount of time to schedule service calls as it seems that repair companies are extraordinarily busy. You should know I have a five person family and do a normal amount of laundry. I also have the matching washer and have had absolutely no issues with it at all. First time it broke - July. Then - October - a week with no dryer. Then again - two weeks ago. Another week with no dryer. EACH TIME THE TECHS DO NOT HAVE THE PART. SO I have to wait to have them delivered and wait for another service call. Today, dryer not hearing again. It was fixed LAST TUESDAY. Tech replaced ALL THREE sensors this time. Did laundry today, cleaning lint trap every time as is my usual custom, and the flipping thing stopped heating. Again. I am beside myself. I spent over 1000.00 on this dryer, seduced by all the bells and whistles and it has been nothing but a nightmare. I bought Maytag because of the reputation, and although customer service has been very nice, I really could not, in ANY way recommend this dryer. I have a ton of work clothes to wash for everyone and now have to wait til Monday to call for repair and start the whole business all over again. Maytag, if you are listening, I think I got a lemon and would like a new dryer. I will take the lowest end one you make. I just want one that WORKS. November 24, 2012
Very Poor Product This was my 1st dryer purchased 10/14/11. Heat sensor went out and control panel was bad. Had replacment dryer delivered 12/29/11. Today is 1/23/12 and the heat sensor is not working in my replacement dryer. It does not heat or dry the laundry. Both times the sensor went out was drying a queen size comforter. Always was a strong Maytag customer, but I'm starting to re-think that. January 23, 2012
The Gas-Steam Dryer results in reliable, evenly dried loads, not tangled. I had two different sets of Maytag washer dryer over 35 years. But based on brother's advice I purchased another brand "energy efficient." Big mistake! That brand did not dry evenly, tangled wash up. After a service call where the repair people were not knowledgeable, and put in a part recycled from another customer, and returned later stating they would use it on another customer, that was it. I researched and bought Maytag Maxima combo. Found no problems with gas dryer operation. The clothes are evenly dry, unwrinkled, and not balled up. The dryer is relatively quiet. Found the large drum holds and dries large, bulky comforter with ease. This dryer has pre-set features, optional timed drying, and is able to steam away wrinkles. I used to throw wet towel in dryer with something I needed wrinkles removed. I would buy same model again. October 29, 2013
