  • Best Drying Performance
  • Quad baffles and advanced moisture sensing combine for quick and even drying to provide the best drying performance available for any size load.
  • Maytag Commercial Technology
  • Maxima XL dryers bring long-lasting, commercial-grade components that you can depend on into your home. The durable motor and 5-rib belt are all built to easily handle load after load, week after week.
  • Extra-Large Capacity
  • The extra-large 7.4 cu. ft. capacity provides enough space to evenly dry your largest loads straight from the washer.
  • SoundGuard Stainless Steel Dryer Drum
  • Layered with sound-dampering material to offer quieter tumbling even when noise is generated by hard objects like coins, buckles and buttons.
  • American Pride
  • From Ohio to you, these laundry pairs are designed, engineered and assembled in the U.S.A. Buy with confidence knowing Maxima XL laundry pairs are dependably manufactured right at home.
  • AutoMoisture Sensing with Quad Baffles
  • Four unique baffles improve movement of clothes around the drum for better drying results and improves the tumbling of smaller loads.
  • Steam-Enhanced Dryer Cycle
  • Effectively relaxes wrinkles and refreshes clothes with steam that penetrates fabric fibers. A guard inside the drum helps to protect fabrics from the spray nozzle.
  • No Hassle Water Hook-Up
  • An easy-to-install connector delivers water directly to the dryer for steam without the hassle. It eliminates the need to fill a reservoir like most dryers that feature steam-enhanced cycles.
  • High Efficiency Sensor Drying
  • Custom Refresh Sensor Drying
  • Touches up loads that have been left in the dryer too long. A fine mist of water is heated to create steam after several minutes of tumbling at a medium temperature. The cycle ends with a brief cool down period.
  • Reduce Static Option
  • A fine mist is sprayed into the heated dryer drum at the end of the cycle to create steam and help reduce static in the load.
  • Durable Glass Window
  • A durable, formed glass window deflects the load back into the drum cavity helping with tumble pattern. Plus, it is resistant to scratching and shattering.
  • Wrinkle Prevent with Steam Option
  • This option provides intermittent tumbling at the end of the cycle and is further enhanced with a fine mist of water that combines with heat to create steam and help reduce wrinkles.

Rated 4.9 out of 5 by 13 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by So Far So Good I bought this to match my one year old Maytag Maxima Washer, after my old Whirlpool dryer kicked the bucket. It's only been a month or so of use so far, but it has worked really well. Seems very well built, like a tank. Looking forward to many years of service from this dryer. 4/30/13
Rated 5 out of 5 by This dryer does it all! My stained work clothes or my spouses dress clothes our Maxima XL dryer coupled with the matching washer keep us both looking great. Our kid clothes stay fresh and bright and the steam option keeps our sons allergies in check. You'll be amazed at the ease of using all the options and speed and gentleness of this dryer. 6/8/13
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love it! Love the large capacity of this dryer. You do have to be careful though, I washed and dried the covers on my sofa which is a microfiber and got a waffle pattern where the top part of the dryer melted the fabric a little. User error though, I should have set it to low heat. So far so good though. Very efficient dries most loads on the normal cycle which is set to 38 min. Lint screen seems flimsy but time will tell if it's going to hold up. Like all front loaders you do have to remove large comforters/bedding to reposition and make sure the middle dries better. I think this dryer gives you a chime to remind you do to that though which is nice. Love the look of the washer dryer combo. I do have mine stacked and I don't like the transition from washer to dryer. I thought they would sit flush when stacked but they do not due to the tapered bottom edge of the dryer and the flaired top edge of the washer it's sitting on. When stacked it is difficult to read the dial, I am 5' 4" tall - average height. Overall, I'm very pleased with my purchase and the capacity of this set! Set is a little pricy but for me worth it. I can get more laundry done in one load and it doesn't take me all day to wash clothes with my growing family = growing messiness. Very "pretty" machine though - I have the graphite color I think. I like the easy touch buttons. Just need to be careful if you brush against the machine while walking by or moving laundry in or out. love that you can stack them to make better use of space in the laundry room. The washer/dryer doors open opposite right now but I think I can switch the dryer door to open to the other side, which I plan on doing when I have time. Need to check the book on that one though! 6/14/13
Rated 4 out of 5 by Quiet and looks like a piece of art. Love this washer and dryer. Can hardly hear them run, very efficient in stain removal and operating times. 6/26/13
