Guide Review - Maytag Performa Dryer Model PYET344A2W - Auto Dry Wrinkle-Free

This heavy duty Maytag dryer has several dryness levels to choose from, including an on/off extended tumble for those fine delicates. It has a great design, with an extra large door for ease of clothes removal, a large drum with a light feature, and push button knob operation.

The best feature overall, is Press Care for wrinkle-free drying which really delivers.

The rating was downgraded slightly due to the inconvenience of the lint filter which is situated in the door opening, and has a protruding lip handle, which is often 'tripped' when removing a load, causing lint to escape and adhere to the clean, dry clothes.

The consumer is still very pleased with this Maytag dryer.
