Maytag® Commercial Technology

ENERGY STAR® Qualified
These electric dryers are ENERGY STAR® qualified so when they are paired with a matching washer they help you save $4,200 on lifetime utility bills.
Wrinkle Prevent Option
The Wrinkle Prevent option helps prevent wrinkles by tumbling clothes up to 120 minutes after the cycle has ended.
Rapid Dry Cycle
Waiting for the dryer is no fun. Get small loads like that must-have outfit dry in a jiffy with the Rapid Dry cycle on Maytag® dryers.
Wrinkle Control Cycle
A special Wrinkle Control cycle relaxes fabrics and helps keep all your outfits looking fresh and virtually wrinkle-free.
With Advanced Moisture Sensing, high-efficiency dryers save energy by stopping clothes when they're dry and not prolonging the cycle. Our high-efficiency dryers deliver over $1,200 in energy savings over the course of their lifetime.
Durable Glass Window
A durable, angled glass window keeps your laundry in line. It pushes tumbling clothes back into the center of the dryer, which aids drying performance. Plus, it's scratch and shatter resistant so you can get a peek at your clothes without worrying about the window.
Wrinkle Control Cycle and Wrinkle Prevent Option
Help keep wrinkles from forming on your favorite outfits during drying with the Wrinkle Control cycle and Wrinkle Prevent option. For seriously wrinkle-prone fabrics, set the Wrinkle Control cycle during drying and the Wrinkle Prevent option after to help keep your clothes crisp right out of the dryer.
The control panel is a cinch to use. And because it's on the front of the machine, we've included a control lock feature so you'll never change cycles by accident. It also helps stop curious kids from changing the cycle.

Is Your Dryer Connection Gas or Electric?

- Electric: needs a three-prong outlet with 30 amp circuit
High-Efficiency: save water, energy and the environment with High-Efficiency washers.
Water Level & Balance Sensors: innovative features for less maintenance and worry.
Wrinkle Reduction Options: convenient options that help keep wrinkles out of clothes.
Moisture-sensing Cycles: moisture-sensing technology monitors dryness levels for efficient drying.

Washer Maintenance Guide
Because all clothes washers have the potential to accumulate some amount of mildew, bacteria and odor after a period of use, we recommend that you perform the following simple routine maintenance:
- Always follow the instructions in the use and care guide for your washing machine.
- Always leave the washer door or lid open between uses to help dry out the washer and prevent the buildup of odor-causing residue.
- Promptly remove laundry after the wash cycle has completed to avoid odor and rusting of metal objects on garments. Wet fabric left in a closed space is particularly conducive to the development of odor.
- Use only the amount of detergent recommended on the detergent container. If your washer is a high-efficiency machine, use only HE detergent, not regular detergent.
- Choose the warmest wash water temperature that is safe for the fabrics you are washing. Use of warm or hot water washers sometimes (not exclusively cold water washes) does a better job of controlling the rate at which soils and detergent accumulate.
- Regularly clean your washing machine. If specific cleaning instructions are not included in your use and care guide, it is a good practice to run an empty cycle (without laundry) once a month using hot water and liquid chlorine bleach or a commercially available washing machine cleaner, such as Affresh™ Washer Cleaner.
There are a number of factors that can contribute to the development of mildew, bacteria and odors in washing machines, including the following:
- Not all of the water immediately evaporates after a load is complete.
- Washing machines generally are kept in somewhat closed and damp environments, such as laundry rooms and basements.
- The laundry that is put into washing machines has a wide variety of organic materials.
- Modern high-efficiency washing machines use less water and are more tightly sealed when the door or lid is closed.
- Modern high-efficiency washing machines are designed for use with specially formulated, low-sudsing high-efficiency ("HE") detergent. Regular detergent may cause excessive suds in high-efficiency machines, and excessive suds can leave a soap film that is conducive to the development of mildew, bacteria and odor.
- Over time, laundry habits have changed, including the use of less bleach, more fabric softener and more frequent cold water washes. These habits may increase the rate at which detergent and soil residue builds up inside the washer, which in turn may result in undesirable odor.
