Maytag Bravos XL MEDB850Y(W/G) Electric Dryer with Steam brings a premium laundry experience that keeps your household's clothes, fabrics and special items ready for daily life. This high-efficiency dryer uses “Advanced Moisture Sensing” technology to save money, evenly dry loads and virtually eliminate overdrying and shrinking. Incoming and outgoing temperatures and moisture levels are monitored using three sensors and moisture strips and it stops the cycle when clothes are dry and does not prolong the cycle, delivering optimal efficiency. The swing glass door and drum lighting are functional and add to the style of the machine.

Huge 7.3 cu. ft. capacity provides enough space to evenly dry your large loads including king size comforters and pile of towels. It is equipped with “Wrinkle Prevent with Steam” option which 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. A much liked “Auto Refresh Steam Cycle” smoothes out wrinkles and reduces 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.

A few users find this dryer to be little louder as compared to other models. There is no option to turn off the sound that indicates open and shut door

Overall, Maytag Bravos XL Electric Dryer with steam is a premium and durable machine which features long-lasting, commercial-grade components for your home use.  Users find it easy to program, use and clean. The price is a bit high on this machine but users find it worth the money.
