10-Year Limited Parts Warranty3 on the Drive Motor and Dryer Drum2

We don't just tell you a Maytag® dryer will provide excellent drying for years: we confidently back our dryers with a 10-year limited parts warranty3 on the drive motor and drum.

Maytag® Commercial Technology

Our dryers are built to last thanks to the Maytag® Commercial Technology we put under the hood. They come standard with a durable motor and a 5-rib belt that keeps them humming along year after year.

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.

SoundGuard® Stainless Steel Dryer Drum

With the SoundGuard® stainless steel dryer drum, we put a damper on the racket that buckles and buttons make as they bounce around the dryer. The drum is layered with sound-dampening material for quieter tumbling and fewer disturbances.

Steam-Enhanced Dryer

These dryers use steam to relax stubborn wrinkles so your clothes come out looking their best. Look for steam-enhanced cycles and options to help prevent wrinkles, refresh clothes and reduce static.

Refresh Cycle with Steam

The Refresh cycle with Steam revives clothes without having to wash them, reducing wrinkles and removing odors.

Static Reduce Option

With the Static Reduce option, a fine mist of water is sprayed onto clothes as they tumble at the end of the cycle to cut down on static.

Wrinkle Prevent Option with Steam

This option continues to tumble your clothes after the cycle has ended and combines a fine mist of water with heat to create bursts of steam that help reduce wrinkles

Sanitize Cycle

The Sanitize cycle uses extra-hot drying temperatures to remove up to 99.9%5 of three common household bacteria from items you don't want to put through the washer.

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.

No-Hassle Water Hook-Up

For steam without the hassle, our dryers come with an easy-to-install Y connector. It delivers water directly to the dryer so you don't have to fill a reservoir.

High-Efficiency Drying

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.

LED Drum Light

The LED drum light brightens up the inside of the dryer, for a nice shine when you need to track down the last of the laundry.

Control Lock

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.

Measure Your Space

Width (side-to-side):

Add 1" to each side for air circulation.

Height (top-to-bottom):

For top-loading units, add at least 20" for door clearance.

Depth (back-to-front):

Add at least 6" to depth for door clearance, dryer vents and hookups.

Installation Space:

Requirements for new washer and dryer install: level floor with no more than 1" slope, location supporting a dryer exhaust system and hot and cold water lines within 3' of washer hookups.

Entrance & Doorways:

Measure doorways, hallways and entry points that new laundry pair must pass through.

Choose Front-Load or Top-Load

Front-Load
  • Great washer performance
  • Uses less water than traditional top loaders
  • Safe for delicate fabrics or bulky items
  • Greater capacity than most top-load models
  • Units can be arranged side-by-side or stacked atop each other
Top-Load
  • Offer good value, range of sizes, feature and prices
  • Units come in a range of capacities
  • Can only be arranged side-by-side

Additional Considerations

Important Considerations
Electrical

Confirm that electrical output is sufficient for the location of your new washer and dryer. You will need:

  • A grounded electrical outlet within 4' of the rear of both machines (no extension cord or adapter).
  • A separately designated 30 amp circuit

Set water heater to 120°F for washer.

Gas

Your home should have:

  • A CST internationally approved gas supply line
  • A shut-off valve
Disposal

Haul away is available for replacement product purchases. Unhook and move the unit you wish to be hauled away to an area from which it can be easily removed. Haul Away Details >

Installation

We offer installation options for major appliances that do not require a gas or water hookup, and are not a built-in unit. Eligible products will display the installation service during checkout. Installation Details >

Is Your Dryer Connection Gas or Electric?

There are two dryer types — gas and electric. Similar models look and perform the same, but differ in how they’re set up. Your decision between the two depends on where you will connect your new dryer:

  • Gas: needs an approved gas line with shut-off valve
  • Electric: needs a three-prong outlet with 30 amp circuit

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.
