Extended warranties are usually very inexpensive and can save you thousands in the future. Some can even cover extra costs that result, such as cost of food that spoils when your fridge dies. It's simple and inexpensive to purchase extended warranties and one of the smartest ways to protect your investment.

Appliances can be large, heavy and expensive. You probably don't have the special tools or expertise needed to fix them in a crisis. If you can spare a few thousand dollars without batting an eyelash for new appliances should they break tomorrow, don't buy a warranty. But if you're like most of us, protect yourself by purchasing inexpensive extended warranties when you buy a new product and save yourself big money in the long run.

Hardworking Dryer w/ nice features & sleek looks

SavannahBride 11/4/2019

Bought this gas dryer as part of a Maytag set about 6 weeks ago. Thus far, every feature we've tried has worked well. I especially appreciate the steam feature which allows us to fluff clothes that we'd otherwise have to lightly iron. Additionally, I like the entire lint trap set up. The rigid plastic lint screen seems more durable than the wriggly one like our old dryer had. Plus, if you drop something, you probably will not lose it down in the lint trap area because the "gate" closes as the lint screen is removed. No more keys, marbles, and screws falling victim to the "lint abyss". The dryer is very quiet. Plus, from our local gas company, we received a nice $$$ rebate.

Stay away!

Calabasas 9/29/2019

Got this dryer today. Smoky smell when it first started. Ten minutes into the first load it stopped working and I got the F3/E3 error. Turned it off, then tried again. Stopped 20 minutes later with same error. Tried several more times. Same thing. Dryer is way, way too hot. Stay far, far away. I'm calling my credit card company to cancel the charge. (And by the way, the matching washing machine works fine but sounds like a freight train.)

Very Disappointing!!

Leah! 9/21/2019

I purchased this dryer about 2 months ago and have had nothing but problems. I would absolutely not recommend this dryer model to anyone. We actually have a repairman coming tomorrow, this is after already completely replacing the machine. There is clearly a problem with this model. When I put my clothes in, it only runs for a few minutes and it shuts down giving an F3/E3 error code. I constantly have to keep restarting the dryer to get my laundry to dry. This has been a problem with both dryers!! The design is very modern and it has lots of features, though the usability is TERRIBLE!!! I am completely dissatisfied with this purchase. I strongly urge you to buy a different model.

Do not purchase

Lisa A 8/22/2019

Only can dry a small load of laundry on delicate mode or the unit throws error codes. Repair company has been called more than 5 times in 3 months. Motherboard has been replaced and unit still doesn't work on any other modes.

Love our new washer and dryer!

AnCFitz 8/4/2019

The WiFi features of the dryer and washer are incredible! Being athletes the best part is the wire rack that allows us to dry our shoes and visors after a long run! So happy that we got these!

Dryer failed within the first two weeks.

Gag1 7/27/2019

After two weeks the dryer would not start. Very disappointed in Maytag. This is their top of the line home dryer. If you want people to buy your product then you need to make a quality product. Thanks to a great dealer they swapped out the dryer for a new one. New replacement so far is working and we do like the features. This is the second Maytag product that has prematurely failed. I want to buy American but Maytag may not be a good choice.

Best Maytag Dryer yet!

lmhanlon 6/9/2019

This dryer has quite a few really good features! The extra power button is really a nice feature as it gives that extra time I need for my towels! The steam, static, and wrinkle prevent are the extra options that I love! It's a pleasure doing laundry with this Maytag!
