no use for over a month!
by: Anonymous

Loved it when I first got it in 6/2010 but it quickly had it's problems. I've only owned this for almost 7 months but with two repairs i haven't had use of it for over a combined of 1 month time while still making payments on my home depot credit card. a belt came off after about two months. then the day before Chrismas it smelled like it was on fire. a large amount of lint was building up inside and caught on fire. we clean out the trap every time, i mean every time. Not sure why the trap is not working? anyway, the belt came off again and the drum know needs to be replaced as well. It's now 1/18, 27 days without a dryer, while waiting on the part and service. I'm most concerned on why so much lint is not getting caught by the trap and catching on fire. Maytag at this time refuses to replace it even though they have spent more money in repairs.

I just got my dryer to match my the bravos washer i bought in Dec. This dryer is awesome. Clothes come out dry and fluffy without wrinkles. I told my sister in law about these machines and she went out and bought the washer and now my brother enjoys it so much he does the laundry for her!

Very happy with the performance. the door swings wide open so you don't have to bend and turn into all sorts of postions to get your clothes out of the dryer. Absolute best purchase I have made in a long long time!

Thank you!
