Get to know this product.

PowerDry Cycle

  • The industry-exclusive PowerDry cycle optimizes heat and airflow to dry your toughest loads

Maytag® Commercial Technology

  • These dryers come standard with high-performance, commercial-grade parts.

Exclusive Premium High Torque Motor

  • With the enormous dryer drum inside this Maytag® top load dryer, we needed extra torque to get started. That's why we added an exclusive motor that's all power and all premium.

American Pride

  • We take pride in building strong, reliable appliances for your home. From Marion, Ohio to you, these dryers are designed, engineered and assembled in the U.S.A.

Extra Interior Fin

  • With an extra interior fin, we've given drying a hand. It helps stop clothes from riding the drum for better tumbling and even drying for small loads.

Improved Lint Screen

  • An improved lint screen lets you capture lint in a single swipe, so it only takes you a second to keep the dryer's airflow optimal.

Steam Refresh Cycle

  • The Steam Refresh cycle helps relax wrinkles and reduce odors without rewashing.

Wrinkle Prevent Option with Steam

  • Don't let wrinkles cramp your style. With the Wrinkle Prevent option, the dryer continues to tumble your clothes after the cycle has ended. It's a no-heat way to help prevent wrinkles from setting in.

Extra-Large Capacity to Evenly Dry Your Largest Loads

  • The extra-large capacity provides enough space to evenly dry your largest loads straight from the washer.

Built With a Bold Design

  • The bold new look of Maytag® top load dryers features a redesigned door and window, premium console and chrome accents.

IntelliDry® Sensor

  • The IntelliDry® sensor keeps an eye on moisture levels to automatically stop the cycle when clothes are dry.

Sanitize Cycle

  • The Sanitize cycle removes up to 99.9% of three common household bacteria.

Audio Level Option

  • Set the end-of-cycle signal volume level on your dryer so you're not disturbed.

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 all Maxima® dryers.


  • The larger window on Maytag® top load dryers means a dynamic view into a whole lot of impressive drying action.

LED Drum Light

  • Our dryers are so large you might consider looking for that lost sock with a headlamp. But thanks to an energy-efficient LED drum light you won't have to. Simply switch on the LED drum light when you need to track down the last of the laundry.

Airflow Monitor

  • The Airflow Monitor provides a visual display to help ensure optimal drying and energy efficiency.
