- The very large 7.3 cubic feet capacity allows you to dry a huge amount of laundry in just one go, saving you time and energy. - Seven automatic cycles with five temperature settings, this dryer can handle many types of fabric, while giving you the option to adjust temperatures as needed. This machine can care for delicates while still being capable of handling heavier garments. - Using the GentleBreeze Drying System with IntelliDry Sensor, this dryer automatically senses moisture levels, allowing it to determine when clothes are already dry. This prevents fabric damage and overdrying, while saving energy at the same time. Thanks to this technology, the dryer can adjust the temperature and drying times for the most efficient, optimum performance. - With the 90-minute Wrinkle Prevent option, delay unloading your laundry for up to 90 minutes, without worrying about any unpleasant odors or wrinkles that may set in. This option allows the dryer to continue tumbling clothes even after the end of a cycle, keeping them fresh until you have the time to unload. - The Quiet Series 300 Sound Package minimizes the noise your dryer makes during operation. - With the DuraCushion dryer drum, the machine’s smooth interior also reduces friction and prevents wear and tear on garments. - With the adjustable end of cycle signal, you’ll automatically be alerted when your laundry is done.
One of the biggest advantages this dryer has is its very large capacity. It makes it ideal for large families and busy households. With an average retail cost of US$700 to $800, this dryer is affordable. Like other Maytag dryers, this machine is very simple and easy to use. It’s also able to handle most kinds of fabric.
The reduced cost of this dryer also means reduced features. Unlike the other higher-end models Maytag offers, this particular dryer does not have steam-enhanced cycles.
Customers have complained about the laundry coming out very wrinkled. Some customers have also complained about the dryer’s performance. After one cycle, some loads are still damp. Customers have reported needing two cycles to have their laundry completely dry.
The machine’s noise is also an issue. Although it is reduced compared to other dryers, it is still significant enough to bother some purchasers. Even with a low cost, some customers feel that they have not received full value for their money. A few purchasers recommend getting a slightly more expensive model with better features instead.
