damages clothes
by: Anonymous

I bought this set of Maytag washer and dryer when we moved into our new house. All I can say its lucky that we have a clothes line. Out of the first 3/4 of the year it was broken and waiting to be fixed numerous times. After many unpleasent(and unfriendly) calles to the Maytag company and the store I purchased it from. They finally replaced it. And still this dryer does not perform well,I called to say that a regular size load was taking 1 1/2 hrs to dry they said it should take up to 2 or more hours??? (hows that for energy efficient??)

You cannot put both sheets from our queen size bed in at one time, and even when put one at atime the sheet within only a few minutes rolls up into a very tight ball. So now I go back and check it many time during the drying cycle to pull apart. Most times I wait until the weather is good before doing the sheets. And there is an area at the front top of where round door fits in, that sometimes things like zippers and underware buttons get caught on that pulls or hangs thing up on. This has damaged some of the clothes.

I use to enjoy when it was laundry day, because it was nice to get everything fresh and nice clean sheets for that night. Now I have to push myself to get this frustrating job done, because the problems with this dryer just gets me very upset.

works for me
by: Anonymous

- fits beautifully in small spaces
- wonderfully efficient
- easy to use.

- lint trap is embedded in the door and occassionally falls out. (Maybe I slammed the door too hard!)
- not large enough for a family of more than 3 or 4.

Remember the old Maytag commercials where the repairman is so bored all the time because the machines work so well that he never has any work to do?

Well, for once the advetisers were dead on! I love my Maytag dryer! It is dependable, efficient, quiet and has not needed a repair or maintenence in the 4 years I have owned it.

I live in a condo and have a small closet for my washer and dryer. This dryer model fits perfectly and is stackable with the matching white washing machine.

I have owned other brands and models in the 20 years that I have been in my condo, and none of them stack up to this dryer. I had several problems with the washer/dryer combo before so I went with the stackable Maytags and haven't had to call the repairman yet. Poor, lonely Maytag repairman!

The dryer is very easy to opperate and has a sufficient number of control choices, without being overwhelming like some brands. Dryness and temperature choices consist of High, Medium and Normal.

There is a control dial to select from 6 drying cycles. The cycles are: Air Fluff, Damp Dry, Wrinkle Release, Normal/Auto Dry, Wrinkle Control and Delicates.

Each cycle has a specified drying time (indicated on an easy to read digital count-down timer) which can be adjusted with a push of the Adjust Time buttons (More Time or Less Time). The timed cycles are energy efficient.
