Image Feature

PowerDry System

Even the largest loads won't stand a chance with the optimized heat and even drying of the PowerDry system. The PowerDry cycle gets the job done with powerful heat and airflow to dry faster, while Advanced Moisture Sensing and an extra interior fin help get your largest loads evenly dried.

Image Feature

Sanitize Cycle

The Sanitize cycle uses extra-hot drying temperatures to remove up to 99.9% of three common household bacteria from items you don't want to put through the washer.

Image Feature

Extra Interior Fin

An extra interior fin helps clothes tumble freely instead of flattening out against the drum for even drying of both small and large loads.

Largest Loads, Evenly Dried With 7.4 cu. ft. capacity, there's plenty of room to get your largest loads evenly dried.

Steam Refresh Cycle The Steam Refresh cycle revives clothes without having to wash them, reducing wrinkles and removing odors.

Rapid Dry Cycle Waiting for the dryer is no fun. Get small loads like that must-have outfit dry in a jiffy with the Rapid Dry cycle on Maytag® dryers.

PowerDry Cycle The PowerDry cycle gets your toughest loads completely dried faster. With optimized heat and airflow, this cycle runs hotter and works harder to power out moisture in your clothes.

Advanced Moisture Sensing Advanced Moisture Sensing delivers even drying every time by keeping a keen eye on air temperatures and moisture levels, stopping the cycle right when clothes are dry.

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.

10-Year Limited Parts Warranty on Drive Motor and Drum We don't just tell you a Maytag® dryer will provide excellent drying for years: we confidently back our dryers with a 10-year limited parts warranty on the drive motor and drum.

Maytag® Commercial Technology Maytag® Commercial Technology ensures our dryers are built to last, coming standard with a durable motor backed by a 10-year limited parts warranty and a 5-rib belt that keeps them humming along year after year.

7.4 Cu. Ft. Capacity There's plenty of room to dry large loads with a spacious 7.4 cu. ft. capacity.

Steam-Enhanced Dryer These dryers use steam to relax stubborn wrinkles so your clothes come out looking their best. Look for steam-enhanced cycles and options to help prevent wrinkles, refresh clothes and reduce static.

Wrinkle Prevent Option with Steam Keep wrinkles at bay when you use the Wrinkle Prevent option with Steam. The dryer tumbles your clothes with bursts of steam for more than two hours after the cycle has ended.

Wrinkle Control Cycle A special Wrinkle Control cycle relaxes fabrics and helps keep all your outfits looking fresh and virtually wrinkle-free.

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.

Edit of previous review

mko 9/26/2017

I wrote a review on 8/19/17 praising this dryer. I still feel it is a good machine. It dries well, good features, good capacity. However, it makes a clicking noise from what I understand is the gas valve operating. This clicking noise happens quite frequently and can be very loud at times (can hear from another room). Maytag sent a service tech out and I was told this is normal. It would seem normal for the gas valve to open occasionally, but several times within several minutes seems excessive. I will have to monitor it and see if it gets worse. By the way, my daughter has had the same dryer for two years and I don't think I have ever heard hers click.

Yes, I recommend this product

DO NOT BUY

KenMD 9/22/2017

We bought this steam model and planned to stack it. There is no stack kit for this model (MGD) only model (MED). The MED model series does not fit the MGD series. The dryer was supposed to come with a Y connector and a short hose for the steam connection - none were provided. When I looked for parts for this model, MGD5500FC, Maytag says this model number is invalid. AVOID THIS DRYER MODEL.

Not all that I wanted it to be

Aaron 3/6/2017

This is a sturdy good looking drier that does it's job quietly. I bought it to match the washing machine model MHW7100DC. The washing machine is amazing which is possibly why I might be underwhelmed with the drier. The 2 biggest downfalls I have noticed after owning this model for 2 months is that my dress clothes are still coming out fairly wrinkled even with steam and permanent press settings. Secondly when drying bedding and large articles they still become twisted and knotted up and do not dry evenly. I don't think it lives up the sales description. There are a too may settings and options that basically don't provide a difference in the cycle performance.

Stay-at-Home Stacey 2/25/2017

I bought this dryer to replace my Samsung. The Samsung was cheaper but you get what you pay for. I had to have it repaired three times within the first two years. I'm so glad I went with Maytag. I especially love the steam refresh. Also with other dryers my sheets and comforter ended up in a tightly wrapped burrito. Not with my Maytag! Everything was dried evenly and had a fluffed look when I pulled it out.

Steve 2/24/2017

This dryer is to set up and operate. I like all the features and its easy to modify settings. I know this is a little odd but the lint trap is one of its selling points, most other brands have a flimsy trap that looks to be a problem as time wears on. I haven't used the steam setting yet but is a good option, plan on using it later and is one reason of purchase. Good quality.

Couldn't be happier with this dryer

Steffen Urban 2/17/2017

Our old dryer lasted 15 years. When it was time to buy a new one, we decided for Maytag. So far the dryer performs very well. Very quiet, bigger drum and I like the drum light so that you can see how things are going inside. I also measured the energy efficiency, and that is a dramatic difference compared to the old one. Plus, in California we received rebates from the gas and water companies.
