About - Maytag MEDE200X[W]

The Maytag MEDE200X[W] is part of the clothes dryer test program at Consumer Reports. In our lab tests, electric dryer models like the MEDE200X[W] are rated on multiple criteria, such as those listed below.


Drying performance:
This score combines performance on three types of laundry loads of different sizes and fabric mixes: A 12-lb. load, predominantly cotton, representing a family's large weekly load; an 8-lb. load of cotton/polyester blend clothing; and a 3-lb. load of synthetic delicates, women's pajamas, nightgowns, bras and underwear.

Capacity:
Among the models we tested, drum volume varied from about 6 to 8.0 cu. ft.

Convenience:
For this measurement, we judged controls and ergonomics, such as ease of loading and unloading, servicing the lint filter, whether the door could clear a tall basket, and whether the machine has a raised edge to contain spills.

Comment:
no need to spend more for a great dryer. I usually don't mix my laundry loads, but when I do, the dryer will get the heavier jeans dry, even if I have other, lighter materials mixed in.
How long have you owned it:
More than six months
Bottom Line
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.
