About - Maytag 2000 Series MGDE200X[W]

The Maytag 2000 Series MGDE200X[W] is part of the clothes dryer test program at Consumer Reports. In our lab tests, gas dryer models like the 2000 Series MGDE200X[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:
I never know when the load is going to be done. The beeper at end of cycle is too low.I have to dry each load twice. I also have to rewash sometimes because of wrinkles being so bad. It is not good for small loads either. Wish I had my [$] dryer back!
