Evenly Dries Your Largest Loads 3 * Advanced Moisture Sensing provides even drying for your large loads.* *Based on testing of an 18-lb load.

Maytag® Commercial Technology Every Maytag® Bravos XL® or Maytag® Bravos X dryer features long-lasting, commercial-grade components for your home. MCT components found in all Bravos XL® or Maytag® Bravos X dryers include a durable high-performance motor and a 5-rib dryer belt.

Advanced Moisture Sensing This high-efficiency dryer with Advanced Moisture Sensing use three sensors to monitor temperatures and moisture levels. Such precision gives you even drying that virtually eliminates overdrying-and it still helps you save money.

Enhanced Airflow Monitor These dryers are capable of venting up to 100 feet. The Enhanced Airflow Monitor automatically checks venting performance to maximize results at the start of every cycle, then provides a convenient visual display. See the installation instructions for additional details.

100-foot Vent Length for Flexible Venting The extended length and 4 exhaust connection options provide increased installation flexibility.

Custom Refresh Steam Cycle After selecting the number of garments to steam and pressing start, a fine mist is sprayed into the heated dryer drum as it tumbles, creating steam to help touch up loads that have been left in the dryer too long. The cycle ends with a brief cool down period.

Auto Refresh Steam Cycle Smooth out wrinkles and reduce odors in as little as 15 minutes. A fine mist is sprayed into the heated dryer drum as it tumbles to create steam. The cycle ends with a brief cool down period.

High-Efficiency Dryer With Advanced Moisture Sensing technology, this high-efficiency dryer saves nearly 40% of the energy* by stopping clothes when they're dry and not prolonging the cycle, delivering optimal efficiency. That equates to over $1,000 in energy savings over the course of its lifetime**. *Compared to pre-2004 traditional electric dryers. **Compared to traditional dryers, electric models only, based on average use, 12-year average life, when paired with a Bravos® XL washer.

7.3 Cu. Ft. Capacity 7.3 cu. ft. capacity provides enough space to evenly dry your large loads.

Reduce Static Option A fine mist is sprayed into the heated dryer drum at the end of the cycle to create steam and help reduce static in the load.

Steam Boost Option The Steam Boost option adds a fine mist that is sprayed into the dryer during the cycle to create steam that helps smooth wrinkles. It may be added to most sensor cycles.

Wrinkle Prevent With Steam Option This option provides intermittent tumbling at the end of the cycle and is further enhanced with a fine mist of water that combines with heat to create steam and help reduce wrinkles.

Direct Y-Connector Water Hook-Up A Y-connector delivers water from the cold water inlet directly to the dryer. It eliminates the need to fill a reservoir in dryers that feature steam-enhanced cycles.

Professional delivery and installation is available for every product we sell. We would be happy to coordinate delivery and installation for you.

Extended warranties are usually very inexpensive and can save you thousands in the future. Some can even cover extra costs that result, such as cost of food that spoils when your fridge dies. It's simple and inexpensive to purchase extended warranties and one of the smartest ways to protect your investment.

Appliances can be large, heavy and expensive. You probably don't have the special tools or expertise needed to fix them in a crisis. If you can spare a few thousand dollars without batting an eyelash for new appliances should they break tomorrow, don't buy a warranty. But if you're like most of us, protect yourself by purchasing inexpensive extended warranties when you buy a new product and save yourself big money in the long run.

Bravos XL High-Efficiency Electric Steam Dryer by Maytag

msdeck 9/16/2015

DaisyKay 4/18/2015

I've had my new Maytag High-Efficiency Electric Steam dryer about 1 month now. I love the large capacity which is nice for towels and rugs, yet with the extra power those loads don't take very long. The steam is a great feature for perking up clothing that is wrinkled from sitting in the dryer too long waiting to be folded. Loads seem to get done really quickly compared to my old dryer without using high heat.

So disappointed in this Large capacity dryer. All the clothes come out wrinkled no matter what setting you use. And the "steam" setting? All it does is spray your dry clothes with water and then re dries them. What a waste of electricity!

Jim646 11/6/2013

Hard to believe I'd feel I'd want to review a dryer, but this Bravos is superb. My old one did the trick but it was time to match up a new pair as the washing machine was going. Couldn't be happier. Clothes really smell fresh and clean emerging from the dryer, and I am not kidding. I appreciate also all the options to freshen up clothes or to use the steam--not something I need to use a lot but boy am I glad it's there when I do. The huge capacity of this baby makes washing pillows and bedding very easy.

Great but no dryer rack

Greg58 8/21/2013

We love the dryer however if you need a dryer rack look elsewhere!The manual states one is available for about $50. I ordered it and it would not fit. I bought the dryer from lowes and they tried to make it fit and it would not so they ordered one with a different part number for me. Just received it and it is the same thing that did not work. I think the engineering dept is a little behind the production dept. Shame because we love everything else about the dryer.

Drys So Much So Fast!

ysvierraallen 4/28/2013

I am amazed at how quickly the BravoXL dries a large amount of clothes. We have three little girls who can go through three outfits a day = a lot of laundry. It can easily fit a weeks worth of laundry for all of them in one load. They are all dry in 30 minutes! This is the first new dryer we have ever purchased and our first Maytag -- we are so impressed. The steam unit was missing and we have yet to receive it, which is why I had to grade it down on features. We have only had it a month, but so far -- We Love this Dryer!
