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.

Love this dryer!

Phiari 7/30/2019

We used to have a very old dryer that came with our home. It banged loudly and was ineffective, even after having it repaired. Now, our dryer is so quiet we have to check that it is on! Plus, it dries quickly and reduces our electrical usage. We couldn't be happier!

LOADED WITH NEW FEATURES

Liberty5601 7/22/2019

We bought this along with the matching washer in the Oklahoma City area and love the features. The dryer is loaded with new features over the previous model and so far its been a god send. The best feature is the fact that you can start a load to dry, but if you do not get home until well after it has ended, the dryer starts itself and spins the cloths to keep the wrinkles out and help prevent odor build-ups. Super quiet..too

First three weeks

Jenngg 6/10/2019

Uncharacteristically, I purchased this dryer without doing much research. I had had my previous washer/dryer for 15 years, and it had been on the downswing for about 5 years. I got lucky with this set, and my feeling is that it's a workhorse. The capacity is outstanding, and all the special features such as the steam refresh have put my iron essentially out of business. Large loads get dried without wrinkles or multiple cycles, and it easily manages even a king-sized comforter. My only issue is that I can't get the machine to pair with my bluetooth so I can control it via the Maytag app.

Works as advertised with no problems at all.

Tom A. 5/6/2019

I bought this set (MED8630 Dryer/MHW8630 Washer) about a month ago. They were delivered in perfect condition with everything promised in the box. We connected the hoses, vents, and electrical then added some detergent and fired up our first load. The washer is very quiet and offers a multitude of pre-programmed cycles and optional settings. The Normal cycle that we use most frequently is fast and does a very good job getting the clothing clean. The Dryer is equally as quiet and dries clothing quickly and thoroughly with plenty of options to choose from. Both appliances are huge compared to the compact Euro appliances we had prior to these. They both are energy efficient. Our first load of laundry came out clean, dry, and remarkably fresh smelling. Time will tell regarding durability and reliability but we feel confident the machines will perform well for the long haul. We're glad to have purchased these machines.

Option everything

Good BC 5/2/2019

We have had this machine for a month and it is operating wonderfully. We are still working out the best option combinations for our purposes, but having all of the different options is very nice. We had our previous Maytag washer/dryer for about 35 years with only minor maintenance. This new one may not last that long, but I don't forsee any reasom that it shouldn't if we follow proper regular maintenance.

Very nice dryer.

John S. 5/1/2019

The dryer has great features. It has everything you need to dry any type of material. I originally bought another brand and had nothing but problems with it including having it break down twice. The Maytag is a great buy for the money. I would recommend it to anyone looking for a high quality machine.

Great Dryer........Poor customer service

Dar61 4/19/2019

I had an addition added to my house with an area constructed to house this washer/dryer set that was described as "stackable". They are not stackable due to the slant of the control panel (unless you are well over 6' tall). I called customer service and spoke with someone in dispute resolution. Was informed that she would "send a complaint up". I asked that she send me a confirmation email........well, I not only did not receive an email, I never got a call back. I ended up having to pay my contractor to reconfigure the laundry area. With that said......love the dryer but customer service is definitely lacking!
