About - Maytag Maxima XL MGD7000AG

The Maytag Maxima XL MGD7000AG is part of the clothes dryer test program at Consumer Reports. In our lab tests, gas dryer models like the Maxima XL MGD7000AG 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.

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

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.

It's a very good dryer but is a little too complicated. It requires a cold water hose and the kit was not included. The kit had to be purchased for $35.oo at a home improvement store. The options are not clear and concise either.
How long have you owned it:
One-to-three months
Bottom Line
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.

We've had the MGD6000AG for about a month and I'm really happy with it. IT's quiet and efficient. It sometimes leaves the clothes a little damp, but I know there's a setting to adjust that. We replaced a dryer from the 80s and this one is WAYYYYY better!
How long have you owned it:
