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.

Clean your Vents before instalation!! **Fire**

Mike J 11/14/2016

Not sure how I will rate this yet. My second load throught the dryer I had a fire! Two days after moving into my new to me home the house caught on fire. The cause ended up being the the dryer vent and lots of buildup of lint in the line. I cant stress enough on cleaning your vents before you hook up your new dryer. If you think your safe do it anyways!

Fragil... Don't look use me too much.

EQ3 9/11/2016

I bought this dryer in April. It worked well for the first month but then it started to make a clanking noise. The repairman came out and fixed it for us but told me the only explanation for the broken rod the drum had was that we used it too much. When I told him we had only had it 5 months he was shocked. Anyways, he fixedbit lado week and ir ese working fine intimate two days ago. So it worked well 5 days!

Small Capacity

Busy working grandma 6/21/2016

I thought I would love this as much as I do my Maxima washer, but I don't. Clothes don't dry very well and I have to split the washer's load in half or it turns into a wrinkled mess. In other words, it has half the capacity of its washer twin. What a pain. I've finally figured out how to compel it to dry a half load completely. Not that happy with it.

Great Dryer - Quiet

crysma 5/20/2016

Had the dryer for 4 months now and love it. Have 3 young kids so always am running a load of clothes or towels. No issues with the dryer. Have used the Refresh setting and it does "freshen" a "good" shirt or pants in a a relatively quick manner. Have had sheets and a half dozen towels in the dryer at once and all dried properly. Love it so far.

Reliability, Performance, High Value Retention - Hallmarks

Faith 5/9/2016

Reliability, Performance, High Value Retention - Hallmarks of the Maytag brand. I became a Maytag customer over 30 years ago when I purchased a second-hand 22 year old Maytag washer. Now I have just bought my second brand new set having left my first set to sell with my home. No regrets, only complete satisfaction. Over 30 years of Maytag ownership and only 2 service calls ever needed!

Getting better everyday

Scurtisc 10/31/2015

I purchased the set with pedastals and the look really nice. Learning to use this type of washer was not to difficult, we have always had top load styles so this was foreignat first. I can't believe how much time I save with my 7.3 cubic foot capacity. No more splitting darks into three loads, pants all in one shot. The wash cycle does take longer then our top load did but this cleans way more efficient. Going through way less soap is saving us money as well. Only positives here for us.

Huge Dryer

Larry 10/16/2015

I bought the matching 8100 model washer and dryer. The dryer has a huge capacity and has done a great job so far. I love that it has steam and have used it to get wrinkles out of shirts and it seemed to work well. I love that the machines are made in the USA. There is an energy savings button that presumably saves energy but increases drying time. Seems counter intuitive that adding a bunch of drying time saves energy. So far the washer dryer set has done a great job.
