Image Feature

PowerDry System

Even the largest loads won't stand a chance with the optimized heat and even drying of the PowerDry system. The PowerDry cycle gets the job done with powerful heat and airflow to dry faster, while Advanced Moisture Sensing and an extra interior fin help get your largest loads evenly dried.

Image Feature

Sanitize Cycle

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

Image Feature

Extra Interior Fin

An extra interior fin helps clothes tumble freely instead of flattening out against the drum for even drying of both small and large loads.

Largest Loads, Evenly Dried With 7.4 cu. ft. capacity, there's plenty of room to get your largest loads evenly dried.

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

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.

PowerDry Cycle The PowerDry cycle gets your toughest loads completely dried faster. With optimized heat and airflow, this cycle runs hotter and works harder to power out moisture in your clothes.

Advanced Moisture Sensing Advanced Moisture Sensing delivers even drying every time by keeping a keen eye on air temperatures and moisture levels, stopping the cycle right when clothes are dry.

American Pride We take pride in building strong, reliable appliances for your home. Better Built by hard-working employees and delivered straight from Marion, Ohio to you, these dryers are designed, engineered and assembled in the U.S.A.

10-Year Limited Parts Warranty on Drive Motor and Drum 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 warranty on the drive motor and drum.

Maytag® Commercial Technology Maytag® Commercial Technology ensures our dryers are built to last, coming standard with a durable motor backed by a 10-year limited parts warranty and a 5-rib belt that keeps them humming along year after year.

7.4 Cu. Ft. Capacity There's plenty of room to dry large loads with a spacious 7.4 cu. ft. capacity.

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.

Wrinkle Prevent Option with Steam Keep wrinkles at bay when you use the Wrinkle Prevent option with Steam. The dryer tumbles your clothes with bursts of steam for more than two hours after the cycle has ended.

Wrinkle Control Cycle A special Wrinkle Control cycle relaxes fabrics and helps keep all your outfits looking fresh and virtually wrinkle-free.

New House New Appliances

SueyJohn 3/28/2017

I bought this washing machine and dryer about a month ago and they have been great! Quiet and easy enough for my 4 year old daughter to help me use. She loves watching the clothes go around and around in the machines and helping me change loads. Love the cute jingles when the machines are done washing :-) I recommended this Maytag brand to my sister who is recently purchasing a new washer, too!

This is my 3rd set of Maytag laundry appliances. They just keep getting better. I really liked every set I've had. All 3 were front load. I will continue to buy Maytag.
