Maytag Neptune Clothes Dryer
We've had our Neptune dryer since 2000. Over the years, we've heard a lot of bad comments about how poorly Neptunes work. The local appliance dealer told us that he's had no end of trouble with them, and he quit stocking them. In his opinion, they're nothing but junk.
Apparently we have beaten the odds. We have never had one bit of trouble with ours. It takes huge loads of clothes and dries them like a champ. The lint filter is easy to access and clean. There are many different settings for timed and automatic drying, and it works well for us on every setting. We have moved long-distance twice during the years we’ve owned our Neptunes, and they have weathered moving well and shown no ill-effects.
I know the Neptune models have undergone many changes since we purchased ours to correct problems from poor seals to bad motors. The Maytag company has also gone out of business and sold to Whirlpool.
We do have a bit of the musty smell in the washer that others have complained about, but our dryer has been topnotch in all ways. In fact, we’ve owned it longer than we’ve ever owned a dryer, and my husband hasn’t had to do any repair work on it at all. That’s a great dryer in my book!
