Evenly Dries Your Largest Loads* Advanced Moisture Sensing provides even drying for your large loads.* *Based on testing of an 18-lb load.

Maytag® Commercial Technology on Bravos XL® Every Maytag® Bravos XL® dryer features long-lasting, commercial-grade components for your home. MCT components found in all Bravos XL® dryers include a durable high-performance motor and a 5-rib dryer belt.

Advanced Moisture Sensing These high-efficiency dryers use Advanced Moisture Sensing technology to save money, evenly dry loads and virtually eliminate overdrying and shrinking. Incoming and outgoing temperatures and moisture levels are monitored using three sensors and moisture strips.

Enhanced Airflow Monitor These dryers are capable of venting straight for up to 100 feet. The enhanced Airflow Monitor checks for any restrictions of airflow at the start of every cycle, then provides a convenient visual display of the dryer's venting performance.

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 This option provides intermittent tumbling at the end of the cycle and is further enhanced with a fine mist of water that combines with heat to create steam and help reduce wrinkles.

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.

Professional delivery and installation is available for every product we sell. We would be happy to coordinate delivery and installation for you.

Extended warranties are usually very inexpensive and can save you thousands in the future. Some can even cover extra costs that result, such as cost of food that spoils when your fridge dies. It's simple and inexpensive to purchase extended warranties and one of the smartest ways to protect your investment.

Appliances can be large, heavy and expensive. You probably don't have the special tools or expertise needed to fix them in a crisis. If you can spare a few thousand dollars without batting an eyelash for new appliances should they break tomorrow, don't buy a warranty. But if you're like most of us, protect yourself by purchasing inexpensive extended warranties when you buy a new product and save yourself big money in the long run.

whydo 10/28/2014

I am NOT happy with the companion washer I bought. It's a high efficiency top loader which I assumed meant electricity. In this case it also means WATER. There is not enough water in the tub to move through the clothes resulting in the clothes being scoured against each other causing fabric damage.

This sucker dries so fast! I can dry a huge load of laundry in under 30 minutes! Which means the washer gets a bit backed up, but man oh man this baby rocks! Some nifty settings that I rarely use. But wonderful to have the steam feature to get some extra wrinkles out.Just one con, is a touch noisy, but laundry room is at other end of the house, so it doesn't bother us.

PJHK 4/30/2014

This dryer was purchased to replace a previous one. Both dryers were quite similar but I like this one so much better. I like that it automatically turns the power button on when you open the dryer door for the first time before starting to use it. I have been using the dryer for about 6 months and I have not yet experienced any problems with it.

Jennifer1123 3/23/2014

We are extremely satisfied with our new dryer! We love the steam feature, and I am especially happy with the fact that it senses when our clothes are dry and will shut off automatically. We know we're not wasting electricity running a dryer when the clothes are dry, and I know that when the dryer shuts off, my clothes really are dry- I won't be opening the door to a load full of damp clothes. We have already recommended this dryer to anyone and everyone who will listen to us!

I love all the features and especially love the steam feature. I would recommend this dryer to everyone.

nancyrosebud 2/10/2014

I was so worried about purchasing a high efficiency that when this one came up on sale I almost didn't buy it... It has been the best washer I have ever purchased and I have owned at least 8 washing machines. I no longer need 2 washers in my house.

Pretty good, not perfect

Lutebro 1/28/2014

Bought this machine for a pretty penny and was hoping for the best. Upon getting it home it made weird noises on rotation. It was a sort of thumping and scraping. Had the repair guy out 3 times and he finally decided we needed a new drum. Got that in and it makes a quieter but different noise that we are putting up with. Otherwise it dries well.

This dryer works and does the job... For the price it could do more. The matching washer is a mess... My towels smell like mildew from the first wash. The water level is so low I can understand why this happens. I always leave the lid open and use the cleaner but nothing works.

I love my new maytag dryer! Ive had it for about 6 months now and I have no complaints. I got the "xl" bc I have a king size comfortor. There is so much room! And the best thing.....I no longer have to dry things, including my king size comforter, more than once! Everything dries the first cycle!!! Very effecient!!! And the steam cycle is nice if you just need to freshen upthings. I would highly recommend this product! And the matching washer too! I have that also and love it! The "xl" is a great size for a big family. You can wash and dry so much in one load! A friend of mine with a family of six recommended this product to me and im so glad she did!

I have a huge king size comforter and although I need to dry it a couple times, it is much better than the alternative (not washing it or hanging it to dry)

Chris100 12/24/2013

Love, love, love my new Maytag washer and dryer. We recently added a new bathroom/laundry room to our home, and I wanted the best unit to put in my state of the art laundry room. I did a lot of research on line, and decided these were the machines I wanted. The capacity of the washer is just amazing. I no longer have to take my large king and queen size quilts to the laundry mat. It is amazing how "dry" my clothing comes out of the washer. The dryer automatically sets the drying time at 38 minutes on the normal cycle, but I find I have started using the "timed dry" more often, because the load is dry before the 38 minutes is up. Some of the reviews I read about other brands stated that the settings were hard to understand and use. No so with these machines. You may want to read the users manual, but I did not find it necessary, is it that easy. Would highly recommend these amazing machines.

mturpin82 12/22/2013

I like all the options on washing different cycles. The dryer works well and pretty quite. The washer is very poor in performance. I don't like washing clothes numerous times to get them clean. I have a 2 year old and he gets messy. I washed his clothes 2 and 3 times to get the simplest food particles off. I'm not talking stains just dryed on food. When I was big loads some clothes don't even get soaked with water. All in all I wasted a thousand dollars!!!!
