IT HAS A MIND OF ITS OWN

rrwidow 11/29/2019

we bought this in November and we hate it. It is so touchy and it decides when to stop, not that all the clothes are dry. What a pain in the but, we both wish we hadn't bought it. The repairman will be back again in the next couple of weeks.

Incredible Dyer!

SemperArmy 11/23/2019

I'm a guy and have hated doing laundry. I got this and its a whole different experience. Its real easy to use, lots of customization, and really like the steam dry the most to freshen up shirts that I forgot to Iron. I used to go to cleaners, because old Dryer would make dress shirts wrinkled so bad it would take forever to Iron. With the steam feature, stuff doesn't come out perfect, and dress shirts maybe need a 1 to 2 min touch up ironing, such that i don't use the dry cleaners anymore and save money annually.

Very Disappointed!

April Mc 11/14/2019

Called repair man because the soap dispenser filled up with water every time we used it. Maytag customer service informed the technician that it was normal and we just have to empty every time. I am really disappointed! My previous Maytag I had for more that 25 years with no problems. I would gladly take it back. We also have to wait for the washer to start because often it will show locked, but does NOT start. Very frustrating!!!!

Love the steam refresh feature!

Farmgirl Sandi 11/7/2019

I have had this for several months now. It dries fast. The steam refresh (once I figured out how to use it) is great.

Amazing Machine!

backer1522 10/7/2019

Had no idea technology (and Maytag) had progressed so far! My iron is feeling neglected. The features (once you get comfortable with them) yield excellent results. If you let the sensors do the work - the cycle may take a bit longer - but you save time on the other end of the laundry job. I have the matching washer - what a team! At first I thought I was being ridiculous in my spending - but no longer! Worth every penny! The pedestals are overpriced - but bring the set to a great height for doing laundry, I would not give them back!

Maytag service introduced a fire hazard

Raj Kamat 8/27/2019

3 service calls in 6 months and the fix from maytag was to introduce a fire hazard to resolve issue with loud noisy functioning of the dryer.Terrible product and a terrible brand that does not stand by the quality of its products.

Works, but...

David11 8/25/2019

Brand new dryer seems to work well, but on the second load the dryer started beeping and flashing an error code of "E:rr". Not sure what this means as it is not in the trouble shooting guide and I can't seem to find anything online about it. I guess we'll see what the tech says.

Love this dryer!

Phiari 7/30/2019

We used to have a very old dryer that came with our home. It banged loudly and was ineffective, even after having it repaired. Now, our dryer is so quiet we have to check that it is on! Plus, it dries quickly and reduces our electrical usage. We couldn't be happier!

LOADED WITH NEW FEATURES

Liberty5601 7/22/2019

We bought this along with the matching washer in the Oklahoma City area and love the features. The dryer is loaded with new features over the previous model and so far its been a god send. The best feature is the fact that you can start a load to dry, but if you do not get home until well after it has ended, the dryer starts itself and spins the cloths to keep the wrinkles out and help prevent odor build-ups. Super quiet..too

First three weeks

Jenngg 6/10/2019

Uncharacteristically, I purchased this dryer without doing much research. I had had my previous washer/dryer for 15 years, and it had been on the downswing for about 5 years. I got lucky with this set, and my feeling is that it's a workhorse. The capacity is outstanding, and all the special features such as the steam refresh have put my iron essentially out of business. Large loads get dried without wrinkles or multiple cycles, and it easily manages even a king-sized comforter. My only issue is that I can't get the machine to pair with my bluetooth so I can control it via the Maytag app.

Works as advertised with no problems at all.

Tom A. 5/6/2019

I bought this set (MED8630 Dryer/MHW8630 Washer) about a month ago. They were delivered in perfect condition with everything promised in the box. We connected the hoses, vents, and electrical then added some detergent and fired up our first load. The washer is very quiet and offers a multitude of pre-programmed cycles and optional settings. The Normal cycle that we use most frequently is fast and does a very good job getting the clothing clean. The Dryer is equally as quiet and dries clothing quickly and thoroughly with plenty of options to choose from. Both appliances are huge compared to the compact Euro appliances we had prior to these. They both are energy efficient. Our first load of laundry came out clean, dry, and remarkably fresh smelling. Time will tell regarding durability and reliability but we feel confident the machines will perform well for the long haul. We're glad to have purchased these machines.

Option everything

Good BC 5/2/2019

We have had this machine for a month and it is operating wonderfully. We are still working out the best option combinations for our purposes, but having all of the different options is very nice. We had our previous Maytag washer/dryer for about 35 years with only minor maintenance. This new one may not last that long, but I don't forsee any reasom that it shouldn't if we follow proper regular maintenance.

Very nice dryer.

John S. 5/1/2019

The dryer has great features. It has everything you need to dry any type of material. I originally bought another brand and had nothing but problems with it including having it break down twice. The Maytag is a great buy for the money. I would recommend it to anyone looking for a high quality machine.

Great Dryer........Poor customer service

Dar61 4/19/2019

I had an addition added to my house with an area constructed to house this washer/dryer set that was described as "stackable". They are not stackable due to the slant of the control panel (unless you are well over 6' tall). I called customer service and spoke with someone in dispute resolution. Was informed that she would "send a complaint up". I asked that she send me a confirmation email........well, I not only did not receive an email, I never got a call back. I ended up having to pay my contractor to reconfigure the laundry area. With that said......love the dryer but customer service is definitely lacking!
