        Great features, but a few quirks

              Comments about Maytag 7.3 CuFt Bravos XL Gas Dryer:

              We really liked this model from a feature standpoint. Excellent selection of modes, great controls and feel, high quality appearance. However, once installed we are having a few issues - an incessant buzzing noise coming from the plastic sheath on the bottom (we have tried adjusting the legs to no avail, the only thing that stops it is pressing on the sheath with a book). Additionally, I love the in-tub lint screen (vs. the messy top-of-machine type), but I have a feeling some of the lint gets scraped off on removing it, and that it falls into the machine duct (not good - I try to vacuum out what I can, but what a hassle). Otherwise performance is great - quick cycles, best drying (not over-dry, but at the same time the clothes aren't coming out damp), and outstanding selection of cycles.

                    I really didn't think I wanted a dryer with the extras, however, I also wanted it to match my Bravos washer. So glad we paid the extra money and bought this dryer. The steamer is great to clean the stuff animals my grandchildren play with and freshen up quilts. Great dryer

                    Wonderful Dryer!

                          The replacement dryer that replaced the original damaged deliver arrived in 1 week. Installation was installed with no problems and basic training was included. However, that's where the good points stop. The water hose for the steam option was not installed.

                          We were told at signing, that all required parts were included after purchase. I had to call 3 times to find out when our new dryer would be delivered. We still did not receive an answer, until my wife and daughter drove to the store and refused to leave until they received a confirmed installation.

                          With that being said, using the dryer for about 2 weeks does require to clean the filter screen at the start of each load. Otherwise, the dryer has the potential to stop prior to the actual normal set point ending.

                          The dryer is a little louder than our previous Kitchen aid model, but not overly so. The ending jingle is pretty much the same in loudness and length as well. Our laundry room us upstairs, so once the door is closed, it is not heard in any of the bedrooms unless you are in the hallway. All in all, it runs beautifully and does what it says it will. Operation is a snap with the positive door closure. The girls love the wrinkle function. They use it incessantly. A very good quality machine well worth the price. I bought it on sale and took advantage of the military discount.

                                      After looking seriously at another brand I chose the reliable Maytag brand and we are very happy we did. My dryer has the steam feature which is great for those of us that do not like to iron!

                                                  I bought this washer after purchasing a different brand 1 months earlier. It pays to spend a little more for a lot more product. It's quiet,easy to use and holds a lot. I love this dryer.

                                                        So excited to move away from GE appliances!! My Mom owned her Maytag for 37 years before she had to replace it. I'm hoping for the same.

                                                              We had and ARCHAIC washer/dryer duo, so were very excited to check out the HE options on the Bravos dryer. It took a few cycles to figure what worked best, but we really love the steam cycles! It saves a ton of time too. Could not be happier with my purchase!
