Maxima XL® HE Steam Dryer with a quiet SoundGuard® drum

Maytag
Model: MGD8000AW

 

American Pride We take pride in building strong, reliable appliances for your home. Better Built by hard-working employees and delivered straight from Marion, Ohio to you, these dryers are designed, engineered and assembled in the U.S.A.

AutoMoisture Sensing with Quad Baffles Four unique baffles improve movement of clothes around the drum for better drying results and improves the tumbling of smaller loads.

Steam-Enhanced Dryer Cycle Effectively relaxes wrinkles and refreshes clothes with steam that penetrates fabric fibers. A guard inside the drum helps to protect fabrics from the spray nozzle.

No-Hassle Water Hook-Up For steam without the hassle, our dryers come with an easy-to-install Y connector. It delivers water directly to the dryer so you don't have to fill a reservoir.

Custom Refresh Steam Cycle Touches up loads that have been left in the dryer too long. A fine mist of water is heated to create steam after several minutes of tumbling at a medium temperature. The cycle ends with a brief cool down period.

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.

Awesome Dryer!

2heat2handle 10/30/2014

This dryer has been great! The static reducer works wonderfully, I hate dryer sheets so this has been a great alternative. I love having the delicate option and the ability to change the heat and dryness level depending on what clothes I'm throwing in.

Excellent Dryer

Prodigal 10/27/2014

My wife loves all functions of this dryer, it drys clothes quickly and efficiently. As our washer / dryer is above my downstairs office, I personally love the fact that the combination of both Maxima XL Washer / Dryers that we purchased are whisper quiet. No more house rattling!

Awesome machine!

pat8234 9/13/2014

I bought the Maxima laundry pair in November of 2013. And, I would do it all over again. The dryer is very quiet even when fully loaded. My favorite feature is the steam feature. When I forget to check and see at what point in the drying cycle the dryer is or I run an errand and, upon returning home, find that the dryer has stopped, I just turn on the Refresh with Steam cycle and 23 minutes later the clothes are wrinkle free.All of the cycles come "pre-programmed" as far as heat temperature, type of material being dried, and length of time the cycle will run, however, you can "tweek" some cycles to your preferences. Here in Michigan, during the winter months, static electricity can be a real problem..The reduce static option keep moisture in the dryer and I have never had to pull clothes apart and endure shocks and sparks. If the Jetsons had a dryer of the future, this would have been it.

Confusing selections on panel for dryness choices

Laureen 8/15/2014

When I choose a drying mode, the selection does not necessarily dry the clothes as selected. Example: I choose "wrinkle control", it automatically gives me "low temperature" and "more dryness", but then the dryer stops and the waistbands or any thicker area on the item are still damp. I don't understand why the dryer doesn't sense the dampness. My 20 year old Maytag dryer that is still working, never ended the load without sensing the dryness of the clothes. (and my 20 year old Maytag dryer still works fine, but I thought the new dryer would be superior...it's not)

Easy as a Sunday morning

Ken64 7/27/2014

My wife and I are opposites (hence, the attraction). I embrace new technology, she prefers old, predictable, and reliable. So, she resisted the idea of a new washer/dryer until 'old reliable' was in hospice care. Thus commenced the search and Goldilocks-like assessment of every washer and dryer on the market. (Too big, too small, too hard, too homely?.JUUUUSSST right!)What do we love about our new Maytags? Pretty much everything. First of all, if your sister in law (like mine) has cautioned you against front loaders?.ignore the noise. The new washers are dramatically different from those of a decade ago. (Hey, the Europeans are right about this?.and a lot of other things.) Just be sure to run the "Affresh cycle"?of which the machine will remind you - and no worries about 'smells'. Plus, these washers are smart and efficient. People: water is a precious resource! You can cram (and we do) a HUGE amount of clothes in these washers - and the machine will determine how much detergent and water is needed. They use less than one-fourth as much water as a top loader. PLUS?.and this is really great?.the high spin speeds leave the clothes almost dry?.meaning clothes spend less time in the dryer.Also, these machines are SUPER easy to operate. The panel interfaces are simple and intuitive. (OK, I read the manual?.but my wife did not?and she understood it intuitively.) They're also QUIET.And, did I mention good looking?"Trust me"?.we looked at them all. There is a reason this is rated #1 by Consumers. All in all, we're delighted with the purchase. We're just hoping they last 16 years like our last set.

Works Great

Zane 7/21/2014

We were very concerned when we bought this as they also make Kitchen Aid. This unit is much better than the KA that it replaced. It is to new to see how reliable it is.
