What a shame
By Dryer Dilemma Over

Comments about Maytag Bravos 7.6 Cu. Ft. Electric Dryer - White:
We bought this dryer in October of 2012. It worked perfectly until September 2015. The unit would dry for a while then completely turn off. After 3 repair visits, the repairman decided it was the heating element. He replaced it. The dryer worked, not as well as it did when it was new, but it dried clothes. Then it started taking 4 hours to dry a load. Again after 3 visits from the same repair person, it was declared a heating element. He replaced it, and the dryer worked for 45 minutes. It got so hot that the metal on jeans actually burned my fingers. The dryer quit running, and won't turn on at all. There are lights and bells, but won't start. Ordered a new dryer. Different brand! The Maytag people were not helpful, just offered an extended warranty.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Not So Bravo
from New Weston, OH
I bought this a little over a year ago and it has been a downer. The washer leaves a lot of lint on the clothes and if you don't use a dryer to get the lint off you have to rewash the clothes. This is not a washer for those eco friendly consumer who line dry their laundry. I have had to replace a bearing already and I am currently waiting on the repair company to come again as the washer is making a horrible noise when the tub goes around. I definitely did not get what I expected when I spent a sizable amount of money on a high end washer and dryer.
Above my expectations
from Coral Springs, FL
I moved into our new home and much to our delight we found the Bravos XL that came with our purchase in the laundry room. This dryer is amazing. My favorite option is the wrinkle prevent. Ironing has become a thing of the past for most of our wardrobe. Once complaint is that you can't turn off the obnoxious ring tone that happens when you turn the unit on or off. Where's the mute key?? LOL
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
Many compliments on overall, WOW what a nice dryer.

I purchased this unit 2 month's ago after foregoing endless garage sale failures for 100 dollars, scratch and dent for a little more. This is the best dryer we have ever owned. We keep it set at Med. heat and it dries even towels and jeans in 30 minutes.

i bought this and it did not work, so I add to go to a laundry mat until we could find out why it was not working, had to go through a lot of calls and finally we got an appointment. the service person came out and found out that the plug in back under the cover was not plugged in from the factory. once he plugged it in it works great.

Worst ever. We do not plan to ever buy maytag again
We have only owned this dryer for 5 years and it continues to over heat and blow the fuse. We have had the fuses and the element replaced and it has now blown the fuse for a 3rd time in one month. Even the places in town that buy non- working dryers do not want ours even for parts.
from Glasgow, KY, United States
We have had this dryer and the matching washer for several weeks now. The loads dry much faster than our old dryer and the cloths come out perfectly. The steam settings are a God sent.
Great dryer for the price!
from Charleston, SC, United States
We bought this dryer a month ago and really love it. It has great options that are easy to use; very efficient as well. Solid buy.
Best on the market!
from Paden City, WV, United States
I absolutely love my dryer! I have been using Maytag brand for over 15 years and will continue to do so.
Fantastic washer and dryer
from Orlando, FL, United States
I have had my bravos washer and dryer for about a month and really like how nice the clothing looks when coming out of the washer and dryer. The clothes are very clean and almost wrinkle free. Very little touch up is needed. Just hang and wear.
