Professional delivery and installation is available for every product we sell. We would be happy to coordinate delivery and installation for you.

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.

Poor user manual and temperature control.

Sparkie48 7/29/2019

The features that are indicated for temperature and time control in the user manual don't all work. There are 5 temperature settings the air dry works good and the high temperature works good. The middle settings seem to be all the same as the hot.

It's the Best!

Nana14053 7/5/2019

I Love to do laundry again ♥️ I bought my new Maytag Dryer a week ago and it's fabulous. My old Maytag was 15 years old and even though it looked brand new because I take very good care of my appliances it was just worn out. I was actually sad to see the old girl go. This new dryer is amazing and I was thrilled about all the new features. I would highly suggest if your in need of a new dryer or washer give Maytag a look see. I promise you won't be disappointed.

Has more features and a 10 year warranty.

largoo 6/3/2019

Bought our new Maytag dryer exactly a week ago. Love the steam option for taking wrinkles out of clothes. Also, when I need something dried quickly, I can use the quick dry with extra power. Haven't felt the urge to connect it with my phone through wifi, but not ruling it out.

Love my new dryer

Nomm 4/26/2019

I'm still learning all the features. Love the control panel up front easy to reach. Many useful choices offered. Love the side opening door rather than a folding down opening door. Makes reaching into the back of the drum easier. Love the style of the square door very much; wish is that the interior lights would stay on longer with the door open while I pull out one item at a time to be folded.
