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 and 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.

Great looking

Submitted by Sandi - I bought this dryer less than 2 weeks ago. Twice now it has just stopped working in the middle of drying a load. The first time, I called an electrician out to be sure it wasn't something with the connection. Everything checked out fine and then the dryer started working again. The electrician was as baffled as my husband and I were but I was just happy it was working. Now, less than a week later it's not working again. Very frustrating to say the least.

Love it!

Submitted by Becca - Bought this (with the matching washer) when building my new house. I moved in 4 mos. ago and have used them both a lot washing things that had been in storage for 9 months. I love that I can now wash blankets & coverlets at home. The feature I was unsure I needed was the steam, but it saved me a lot of $ by using it to get creases out of cashmere sweaters that had been folded for so long. Also wonderful for handling dog hair on clothes!

Didn't operate when we got it home

Submitted by Rin - The machine wouldn't start. Called dealer. Was told to call service. They said Maytag sent their techs. Called Maytag and they gave me another service company. He tested and ordered two parts. The problem was door connections were not connected. Bottom line we had the dryer nearly two weeks before we could use it. We expect it to be a good machine now.

Submitted by Andie - This dryer is everything I hoped it would be.

Submitted by Minthill - I like the solid feel of the machine. Once the drier is on, you have to pull up the lint tray or it won't start. A few times it went thru the cycle and didn't dry the clothes. It was probably something I did wrong! It has many features that I need to learn about.

Plenty of space; plenty of options

Submitted by Alice - This dryer tumbles my bedding with plenty of space to spare. I also love the multitude of options. I think taking time to decide which option is right for certain clothes makes the clothes come out better and will keep them looking new for much longer. I use the customized settings for all of my dry clean only items (except suits). It really reduces my dry cleaning expenses! I haven't used the steam setting yet, but I am glad I bought the technology while I was making such a big change. The settings are clearly explained; I suggest everyone take the time to read the instructions and appreciate a great machine.

Great Features

Submitted by Freetime from laundry - I previously had a Maytag, it was probably 30 years old I guess. It has never quit. I got tired of going to the laundry mat to do bedding. I wanted a more advanced model that would hold more, save water and had more features. I love my new machine. Although I am still learning to operate, it has so many functions. I actually do less loads of laundry per week. We like on a farm so everyday we have very dirty laundry. I still have not quite figured out the oxy cycle. I still have to pretreat our laundry because it can be very dirty and sometimes has to do an extra rinse. But the large capacity has saved me a lot of time and water wasted from my old maytag with the center wringer and no place for fabric softerner or bleach or oxi detergent.

Great Dryer!

Submitted by Head above Water - Bought this to replace the one lost in the flood of August 2016. Loved the variations of cycles before, and still do, especially the steam cycles. Dries large comforters and washable rugs with room to spare. I like having the window showing how long the cycle will be. I also love the tennis shoe drying rack, it's very useful. I used the previous BRAVOS model for 8 years with no issues at all. Would buy again in a heartbeat!

Submitted by Marybeth - great washer. Tons of room / capacity although if you fill it more than 1/2 way up - it has problems spinning out and balancing in the removal of the water - which sometimes requires you to pause the cycle, open and shift the clothes around yourself.
