Pros & Cons
The Maytag Centennial 7 cu ft Electric Dryer (MEDC300XW) is a budget friendly, dependable machine that can spin dry huge loads of clothes every time. It is a simple and straightforward equipment that even an elementary school kid can operate! It comes with useful features like the wrinkle release function that removes most wrinkles even after you forget your clothes in the dryer overnight.
This Maytag product is a quiet and efficient worker, drying clothes without overheating them. But sometimes, the clothes don't dry completely, as the Dry Sensor senses only the dry garments in the mix and ignores the wet ones. Many reviewers have had to redo the drying a couple more times to get desired results in the end.
The door opens sideways only and this might be a deal breaker for people with slippery hands as few fabrics can fall to the ground (imagine if the dryer was in the basement!). But placing the dryer in the basement might be a good choice as the buzzer emits a really loud noise that affects daily routine (like sleeping in the night) if the dryer lives inside your house!
The placement of the lint filter on top of the dryer is not intuitive, as lint floats all around the top of the machine during the removal process. In addition, some lint continues to remain in the clothes after every cycle.
Overall, the Maytag MEDC300XW Centennial Electric Dryer in White may not come with all the bells and whistles, but is a solid performer with basic features at an affordable price.
