  • Extra Large Capacity
  • 7.3 cu. ft. capacity provides enough space to evenly dry your large loads.
  • Evenly Dries Your Largest Loads
  • Advanced Moisture Sensing provides even drying for your large loads.
  • Maytag Commercial Technology on Bravos XL
  • Every Maytag Bravos XL dryer features long-lasting, commercial-grade components for your home, including a durable high-performance motor and a 5-rib dryer belt.
  • Advanced Moisture Sensing
  • Uses three sensors to monitor temperatures and moisture levels. Such precision gives you even drying that virtually eliminates overdrying-and it still helps you save money.
  • Enhanced Airflow Monitor
  • Capable of venting straight for up to 100 feet. Checks for any restrictions of airflow at the start of every cycle, then provides a convenient visual display of the dryer's venting performance.
  • Custom Refresh Steam Cycle
  • After selecting the number of garments to steam and pressing start, a fine mist is sprayed into the heated dryer drum as it tumbles, creating steam to help touch up loads that have been left in the dryer too long.
  • EcoNormal Cycle
  • EcoNormal saves energy when drying by removing a little less moisture before ending the cycle.
  • Sanitize Cycle
  • The Sanitize cycle removes 99.9% of common bacteria from clothing and fabrics.
  • Auto Refresh Steam Cycle
  • Smooth out wrinkles and reduce odors in as little as 15 minutes. A fine mist is sprayed into the heated dryer drum as it tumbles to create steam.
  • High-Efficiency Dryer
  • This high-efficiency dryer saves energy by stopping clothes when they're dry and not prolonging the cycle, delivering optimal efficiency.
  • 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.
  • Steam Boost Option
  • The Steam Boost option adds a fine mist that is sprayed into the dryer during the cycle to create steam that helps smooth wrinkles. It may be added to most sensor cycles.
  • Wrinkle Shield 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.
  • Direct Y-Connector Water Hook-Up
  • A Y-connector delivers water from the cold water inlet directly to the dryer. It eliminates the need to fill a reservoir in dryers that feature steam-enhanced cycles.
  • Enhanced Airflow Monitor
  • Capable of venting straight for up to 100 feet. Checks for any restrictions of airflow at the start of every cycle, then provides a convenient visual display of the dryer's venting performance.
  • American Pride
  • Designed, engineered and assembled in the U.S.A. Maytag believes in investing in American workers.

Product Reviews
Rated 4.6 out of 5 by 51 reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Big Dryer This is a very large dryer. We measured it to make sure it would fit in our laundry room but did not account for the space it needs for the hose. Our laundry room door almost doesn't open now! If it gets pushed back any then we get an alert light that the air flow isn't good and the dryer turns off. Other than that it is great! 5/12/15
Rated 4 out of 5 by Hot stuff I replaced my old washer and dryer with this set. Looks very modern, love the granite color, large capacity, works great, dries much faster than my old one. I have only had this dryer for a month but so far so good. 5/28/15
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great drying options I did my research before I purchased my dryer. I am happy with my dryer. Still learning all the options. 5/30/15
Rated 3 out of 5 by Lint trap could be improved The unit's controls could have been improved if several women who do wash would have worked with you. This unit has many options but may be over built. Some times you just want to set the heat level and push start. 6/5/15
