    Dry already!

    I picked this out on the website and scheduled a delivery date through the website. I had some questions about the dryer and was able to find my answer on the manual. I received a call and a text to keep me aware of the arrival time. The installers were here on time and very pleasant. The handle is positioned on the top of the door and opens and closes easily. My last dryer started every time I brushed up against it to get something off the shelf or hang clothes above it so I do appreciate the hold 3 seconds before it starts. It also has a door lock button which is a great safety feature as well. My clothes are dry before the next load has finished washing. This is something very new for me. I’m amazed at how much time I save with clothes being dry the first time. The dryer has an "Extra Power" button but I never get to use it because clothes are dry so soon. I've had this for 3 months now and have never had to turn the dryer back on to get a load dry. The buttons and digital display are easy to see. There is no light on the inside when the door is opened. I opted not to get the steam dryer because I didn’t want to hook a water hose to the dryer. I have had no problems with wrinkles even with the wrinkle prevent turned off.

    Some design flaws; installation drama

    I am actually giving the product 4 stars but the delivery experience dropped my rating. The Product: to install the power cord, you have to unscrew three screws then attach hoop connectors so the screws must come all the way out. There is nothing guarding the screws or preventing them from falling, and I dealt with a screw that fell down into the body of the dryer. I had to steal a screw off the rear panel of the dryer (luckily the same type) so I could connect the power. There should be clips or non-screw connectors that make this more consumer friendly and simple so this doesn't happen. When attaching the stacking kit brackets, the threaded holes on the right bracket were poorly done so I could only screw those halfway in. The left hand side worked fine. The threading on the holes for the screw-on-feet are also poorly done so the feet don't easily screw in. For a plastic part you shouldn't have to use a wrench to screw them in. The drain hose was not long enough for me to insert it into the drain in the rear of the cubby where my w/d go. Maytag should include a longer hose instead of designing for a typical side by side install in a laundry room; not everyone has those. Otherwise I am happy with the machine's performance, how quiet it is, its looks, and what a nice job it does. The installation: BB delivery refused to install because my old, conventional uni-body stacker would not pull all the way out because its hoses were too short. Instead they fell back on the lawyer's preventing them from doing anything but the bare minimum (a la installing a w/d in a conventional set up where everything is easily accessible -- that doesn't always happen in towers because developers aren't the smartest) so I had them leave it behind and installed it myself. Disappointing I had to do that but at least installation was free.

    Fell short

    The first disappointment was that when I was in the store purchasing, the tag hanging on it stated the dryer had STEAM option. Upon delivery, that was not the case, but the serial and model numbers matched. When I went to the store days later, the tag hanging on it had been corrected on no longer stated it had the steam option. Additionally, per the sales rep, this machine had a rack of sorts that one could sit shoes on while drying in the the washer without tumbling them about. That was not present upon delivery. I am attaching the in store tag that states 'YES' to steam on this model. Other than those sales errors, I have enjoyed the machine itself. Merely disappointed with the sales portion of what I though I was purchasing. All of these concerns were noted in the installers notes that he said were always reviewed by higher leadership. NONE of whom followed up the me on the mis-sale.

    Last Maytag I Buy

    Bought this Maytag dryer along with a Maytag washer and had delivered. Washer worked fine, dryer ran 2 minutes and gave error codes F3 and E3. Called Best Buy, they handed me off to Maytag. Maytag said the soonest repairman could be there was 11 days from today. I said no thanks. I remembered back about a year when I bought a Maytag Dishwasher. On the very first load the drain pump would not run to empty the dishwasher and it threw an error code. I took the panel off to discover the pump had not been plugged in from the factory. I plugged it in and all is well. The F3 E3 error code on the dryer is an error indicating a bad intake air thermistor. After a week already without laundry I decided to take the back panel off. Sure enough, the plug to the thermistor is just dangling by the wires. I plugged it in and reassembled the dryer. It now works as it should. Maytag seems to have a serious quality control issue. This may very well be the last Maytag (or Whirlpool) appliance I ever buy. I think customer service was lacking from both Maytag and Best Buy.

    Great Dryer

    This Maytag steam dryer is great. It works well and dries clothes quick. We bought both the washer and the dryer as a stacking unit. It fits well in the space. I will say though, that if your plan is stack this unit the control panel is slanted up which makes it difficult to read the controls. I was also surprised to find that this dryer does NOT have a light in. I dont know that I've owned a dryer without a light. I didn't know that was something I needed to look for when buying. The dryer is very quiet when running. You wont even know it's on. This model has a power boost button on the dial. Just press it for a little extra drying power. There are several drying options including bulky items, towels, wrinkle reducer, steam, normal, permanent press, and several others. Overall I'm impressed with this unit and would buy it again.

    This dryer is very efficient. I like that it senses the dryness of the load and will turn off when dry rather than continue to run. Lots of options available and I like the extra power boost it offers. But like the washer, I’m not a fan of having to hold the start button to the count of 3 before it turns on. It literally counts down 3-2-1 and the starts. But other than that. I love it.

    So LOUD

    Posted

    • My Best Buy® Member

    So, this dryer does dry clothes, kudos, but it is SO LOUD. My laundry room is on the first floor and we have to close the door when the dryer is running and go to a non-adjacent room because this thing is just way too loud. Would have returned if BB gave you more than 15 days to return appliances.

    The selection of cycles are just right and so easy to adjust to suit my needs. I got the pedestal and am so glad I did. It's even a cinch to get stuff out! Only design flaw (or perhaps a sales flaw) is that I would have preferred the door to open the other way.

    Don't buy this dryer

    Chilly
    • My Best Buy® Member

    No no no a dryer should not ball up sheets, large towels, or bedspreads into a cigar shaped ball that will not dry. You are going to have to stop the cycle and un ball the laundry several times to get it dry. Worst dryer I have ever owned and I'm old.

    This dryer simply put is AWESOME! This is the best dryer I have had, hands down. I have had several and none of them compare to the quality of this Maytag. I would most definitely recommend this to anyone looking for a new dryer.

    Just moved and washed everything that was in storage. If we were going to have problems... they would have appeared in the 2 weeks of nonstop use. Not a single issue- worth the money!

    I bought the set and the are twins, exactly what I'm used to, lol. But it runs great, there are several options to ensure that your clothes are dried as you desire.

    The unit is louder than anticipated and takes longer to dry. The lint trap seems fragile and I anticipate my teenager breaking the little track piece.
