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.

Edit of previous review

Submitted by mko - I wrote a review on 8/19/17 praising this dryer. I still feel it is a good machine. It dries well, good features, good capacity. However, it makes a clicking noise from what I understand is the gas valve operating. This clicking noise happens quite frequently and can be very loud at times (can hear from another room). Maytag sent a service tech out and I was told this is normal. It would seem normal for the gas valve to open occasionally, but several times within several minutes seems excessive. I will have to monitor it and see if it gets worse. By the way, my daughter has had the same dryer for two years and I don't think I have ever heard hers click.

DO NOT BUY

Submitted by KenMD - We bought this steam model and planned to stack it. There is no stack kit for this model (MGD) only model (MED). The MED model series does not fit the MGD series. The dryer was supposed to come with a Y connector and a short hose for the steam connection - none were provided. When I looked for parts for this model, MGD5500FC, Maytag says this model number is invalid. AVOID THIS DRYER MODEL.

No, I do not recommend this product

Does the Job Well

Submitted by BurkeCableGuy - Moved into a new home and wanted a dryer to match the highly rated washer we recently purchased.

Submitted by jackie - we did a lot of research and by far this dryer had the most positive reviews. I didn't need a dryer only bought because my husband insisted we get this to match my new washer.

Not all that I wanted it to be

Submitted by Aaron - This is a sturdy good looking drier that does it's job quietly. I bought it to match the washing machine model MHW7100DC. The washing machine is amazing which is possibly why I might be underwhelmed with the drier. The 2 biggest downfalls I have noticed after owning this model for 2 months is that my dress clothes are still coming out fairly wrinkled even with steam and permanent press settings. Secondly when drying bedding and large articles they still become twisted and knotted up and do not dry evenly. I don't think it lives up the sales description. There are a too may settings and options that basically don't provide a difference in the cycle performance.

No, I do not recommend this product

I Love This Dryer!

Submitted by Stay-at-Home Stacey - I bought this dryer to replace my Samsung. The Samsung was cheaper but you get what you pay for. I had to have it repaired three times within the first two years. I'm so glad I went with Maytag. I especially love the steam refresh. Also with other dryers my sheets and comforter ended up in a tightly wrapped burrito. Not with my Maytag! Everything was dried evenly and had a fluffed look when I pulled it out.

Quiet Dryer

Submitted by Steve - This dryer is to set up and operate. I like all the features and its easy to modify settings. I know this is a little odd but the lint trap is one of its selling points, most other brands have a flimsy trap that looks to be a problem as time wears on. I haven't used the steam setting yet but is a good option, plan on using it later and is one reason of purchase. Good quality.

Couldn't be happier with this dryer

Submitted by Steffen Urban - Our old dryer lasted 15 years. When it was time to buy a new one, we decided for Maytag. So far the dryer performs very well. Very quiet, bigger drum and I like the drum light so that you can see how things are going inside. I also measured the energy efficiency, and that is a dramatic difference compared to the old one. Plus, in California we received rebates from the gas and water companies.
