why you'll love it...

Maytag® Commercial Technology

These dryers are built to last thanks to the Maytag® Commercial Technology we put under the hood. They come standard with a durable, high-torque motor, 5-rib dryer belt and durable rollers that keep them humming along year after year.

Extra-Large Capacity

These 7.0 cu. ft. capacity dryers have plenty of space to take on large loads from your washer, including up to 18 towels in a single load. With this much room, you're gonna need a bigger laundry basket.

Heavy-Duty Motor

The heavy-duty motor produces a whole lot of high-torque action to handle whatever you throw in the dryer. A larger pulley provides fast spin speeds, which works together with optimized airflow for exceptional drying.

Wrinkle Control Option

Don't let wrinkles cramp your style. The Wrinkle Control option uses 90 minutes of extra tumbling after the cycle has ended to keep clothes ready to wear.

We take pride in building strong, reliable appliances for your home. From Marion, Ohio to you, these dryers are designed, engineered and assembled in the U.S.A.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Relatively easy to use. I bought this dryer approximately a couple of months ago. The dryer works reasonably well, and it has a very good capacity to it. Unfortunately, the gauge/thickness of the steel on the dryer is thin/light in nature. Due to this the entire front wall of steel bends a bit as you open or close the door or in leaning on or against it. Unfortunately, the drying cycle does not dry the clothes completely even on the 70 minute setting with the heat temperature set to high. Oftentimes, we have to put regular loads in for an additional 30 minutes of drying time to get the clothes completely dry. Also, when we removed the manufacturers' tape that had been applied by the manufacturer we noticed a number of small scratches in the paint of the machine that the tape had just covered over. Also, there was no enamel touch-up paint to correct paint issues or scratches. (This review was collected as part of a promotion.)

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not as good as they said I was lead to believe this was a great dryer I've been deceived. One it takes forever to dry a load, second it tangles up and I have to unknot the clothes, third it doesn't hold as much as they say and lastly it squeaks constantly!!! Had the repair guy out to fix this issue, was good for 2 days and it's squeaking again!!! They told me not to put as much stuff in the dryer (which I have put as much in my old set) and it's like but this is bigger I should be able to still put this much!! Not impressed at all!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Huge Drying Capacity I purchased a Maytag washer and dryer last August and I am so pleased with their performances. Years ago I had a Maytag washer and a Maytag dryer that lasted forever. I ended up giving them to a woman who was in need. For whatever reason I switched to a different company (mistake big time). I sold those for very little just to get rid of them. I got a great deal on my Maytag washer and dryer and I am very happy now. (This review was collected as part of a promotion.)

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
Evaluate Features
Washer

High-Efficiency: save water, energy and the environment with High-Efficiency washers.
Water Level & Balance Sensors: innovative features for less maintenance and worry.

Dryer

Wrinkle Reduction Options: convenient options that help keep wrinkles out of clothes.
Moisture-sensing Cycles: moisture-sensing technology monitors dryness levels for efficient drying.

Choose Your Accessories

Pedestals: Create an area for storage and raise the front-load washer and dryer for more convenient loading and unloading.
Cleaners: Keep your new washer fresh by removing residue and odor left behind by water and detergent using Affresh™ Washer Cleaner.

Pick a Color and Finish

Most models available in: black, white and stainless steel.

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.
