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.

I had to replace my 1970's Maytag washer and dryer as the dryer was leaving black marks on the clothes. They still ran great. That is why I chose Maytag again. I went with these models due to the rebates and deal we got. We love them. I hope they last another 40 years. Thanks Maytag!

Gets Clothes Clean, But Needs MAJOR Improvements!

CLP 10/7/2015

I have a love/hate relationship with this washer. While it does get our clothes clean, no matter how much detergent I add to the load (I always adjust it to 6, the highest allowance for the automatic dispenser), our clothes never smell clean...I can actually still smell my husband's deodorant on his shirts when I take them out. I miss having laundry that actually smells like it's clean! I also really HATE that you have to buy separate accessories for the detergent dispenser - even if I don't want to do the automatic dispenser, I still have to buy a $50 part from Maytag. When I ordered a separate automatic detergent dispenser from Maytag, it took 6 months for it to get delivered (I was furious because we were getting ready to have our first baby, and needed to wash all of his clothes with a different detergent than what we use, and instead had to improvise since the dispenser took so long to ship out). There is also mold growing in the detergent dispenser drawer, even when I leave it open to air out and dry - I clean out mold from the drawer once a week to make sure our clothes don't come out smelling musty (I called Maytag about the issue, they sent a technician out to come take a look at it, and upon inspection of our washer, he took one glance at it, said, "I need to call the manufacturer on this," and then proceeded to tell me that Maytag told him this is a common occurrence and there is nothing they can or will do to fix the problem - even though THEY sent him out in the first place). Now we are no longer under warranty, and I am stuck with a washer that cost us a TON of money, because it is supposed to be one of the best on the market, and instead it leaves me longing for my Samsung front loaders that we owned previously.

Excellent Product

Joe 7/20/2015

Didnt really need to replace my 20 year old Maytag dryer, but since my dear old Maytag washer was wore out from washing 10-15 loads a week for 20 years, I decided to switch from electric to gas on this new Maytag dryer. It runs like a charm and is extremely quiet and dries fast. Lots of settings and intuitive to use. Love the steam injection to remove wrinkles and the way the tub can be optioned to tumble ever so often to prevent wrinkles after the dry cycle is done. Excellent maching. Highly recommend.

Overall nice dryer

archikris 7/1/2015

Still getting used to this unit but am overall satisfied with it. I like the timer feature which lets you know how much time is left until complete. Only cons: Would like more control over temperature between settings. Sometimes doesn't seem to dry completely, even on highest dry setting and I have to restart on timed dry a couple of times. Seems to take longer to dry than older model, but this may just be a perception.

Noisy and leaks

Mountain dog mama 5/29/2015

I don't like to write a poor review but here, since you asked, is the truth of the matter. I had a Neptune for 9 years and liked it very much so I was expecting the same with this very expensive Maxima. First the sounds are extremely loud (but our repairman figured out how to turn them off). Secondly, it is loud when spinning (sounds like a plane taking off). And, thirdly, it drips quite a bit when it is finished. So much so that I now put a towel in the gasket so that it doesn't run onto the floor. Like the automatic soap dispenser though as well as the light in the drum.And I like the fresh hold feature

I LOVE MY DRYER

ssr710 3/31/2015

I was heartbroken when my 7 yr old front loader washer died. (I know this is a dryer review but bear with me) I was prepared to buy only a new washer until my repair guy mentioned that almond appliances are no longer available! So I bought a set of lovely black Maytags. The dryer's steam feature was originally a turn off for me, as I'd heard about mold in the water chamber, etc. I was reassured that there was no separate tank but it had it's own water line, I relented (and I needed a working washer/dryer) Fastforward a few months & I've used the steam refresh setting a few times & I love it. I have a gas model & find that I have no regrets replacing a working dryer with this one that matches my washer!

I bought this with the matching dryer and simply love them both. This washer does a really good job. Very energy efficient, etc... I would suggest buying the additional pedestal for the appliances. The color I choose was Metallic Slate. If you buy the pedestals, please be aware that the color of the pedestals are a little darker than the Metallic Slate of the washer or dryer, but they look good together.
