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.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Have a few issues Disappointed in the fact that I bought a floor model and told it was new to find out it was a 2011 model sold to me the end of 2013, do not like that the dryer doesn't completely turn off all the lights when done with a cycle, I feel this is a energy sucker and I try to conserve energy as much as possible. Also I don't like that the door doesn't stay open all the way and wants to keep closing on me when trying to rotate a load. This is the first time I have ever bought a Maytag or a floor model....I'm not sure I made the right decision, but I wanted a machine made in the USA. So that was my main reason for buying.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Cut my washing loads from 6 to 3 how great is that I read all of the reviews before purchasing my washer and for the most part the reviews were very good. The main complaints was that it didn't get everything clean. My response is that these people didn't follow the directions, plain and simple. You cannot overload the washer. The force of water is what cleans the cloths. I have only had my washer for about 6 weeks, and compared to my previous washer, I am thrilled. Maytag/Whirlpool is still the best in my opinion. In this instance, you do get what you pay for. Pay a little, get a little, Pay a lot, You definitely get your money's worth.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love that steamer. We have a Bravos XL gas dryer. The MayTag dryer tells you every thing you need to know on the one dial. No need looking around for more dials. It is all there so easy to find a setting you need. I had the steam hooked up on the MayTag dryer. First I said no I don't need that. Then I have never had that option before on my old MayTag dryer. So I had the steam hooked up. Best thing ever . No more ironing blouses, table clothes and things with a lot of cotton in them. What a great feature. We are enjoying our new Bravos XL MayTag gas dryer with steam. Thank you The Jacksons.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very happy with the product Received this dryer on Saturday 5/19/2012. I tested it out on a couple of loads on Saturday and today, Sunday. All the features are working, and it is very quiet. I did various load type that included bath towels, jeans,bed linens-including the mattress cover, and various types of clothes. The items came out fresh with very little wrinkles. I will keep an update on this product giving it more time in operation.
