Companion Washer - MVWX6STBW Review




Dryer Pros and Cons
Drying Provides standard drying cycles that are effective for most types of fabrics. Does not offer advanced steam or sanitize options that counter wrinkles or bacteria and are available on about 60% of new dryers.  
Cycles Number of available cycles and options is about average for a new clothes dryer. Generally the more cycles and options you have to choose from, the better the chance of meeting your clothing care needs.  
Drum Drum material is comprised of adequate but less desirable materials such as steel, plastic, or porcelain. Stainless steel is more durable and less resistant to damage, odors, discoloring, or static build-up.  
Capacity Internal capacity of the MGDX6STBW dryer is about average for a new dryer. Dryers range in size from a minimum of about 3.5 cu ft to a maximum of about 9.0 cu ft. The average size is about 7.2 cu ft.  
Sensor Uses a moisture sensor to measure the water content of clothing as it tumbles, and automatically shuts-off the cycle when dry. Prevents clothing from being damaged by overheating and saves on energy costs.
Price Price per cubic foot is 15% lower than average and ranks in the top 30% of new clothes dryers for BETTER affordability. Based on the MSRP, each cubic foot costs about $22 less than the average new dryer.

Performance Ratings
Temp
Settings
3 Settings - Less than average number of temperature settings. Most new dryers have five settings, and some even have six. The more settings available, the better the choice and care for your fabrics.  
Steam
Cycle
No Steam Cycles - Does not have the ability to generate steam and refresh lightly worn garments, or remove the wrinkles from clothing. About 60% of new dryers on the market now include a steam cycle.  
Sanitize
Cycle
No Sanitize Cycle - There is no special cycle that uses high-temperature heat or steam to sanitize pillows, stuffed animals, or other non-washable items. Helps remove bacteria and allergens.  
MSRP $899 - Manufacturer's Price (MSRP) is 19% lower than average and ranks in the top 25% of new clothes dryers for BETTER overall price. You should also consider the Maytag MGDX6STBW cost per cubic foot.
Warranty Maytag 1-Year Parts, 1-Year Labor - Industry standard warranty for clothes dryers. A few manufacturers sometimes offer a longer warranty on parts if you register the dryer with them.


Convenience Ratings
Stackable Not Stackable - Cannot be stacked vertically with a companion washing machine to save space in your laundry room. Only an issue if you have a smaller laundry room without space for side-by-side models.  
Reverse
Door
No Reversible Door - The Maytag MGDX6STBW dryer door is fixed and cannot be changed to open from the other side. Over 90% of new clothes dryers are designed with flexible doors that can swing right or left.  
Drum
Light
Drum Light - Includes an internal light that automatically switches on when the dryer door opens. Almost all new dryers come equipped with this nearly essential feature so you can see to unload your clothes.
Filter
Indicator
No Filter Indicator - There is no visual reminder on the MGDX6STBW to change the lint filter. Most of us are remiss in this area and a clogged filter light is very helpful. Available on about 50% of new dryers.  
Dryer
Rack
No Dryer Rack - Does not include a dryer rack that allows tumble-free drying for items such as tennis shoes, ball caps, sweaters, or stuffed animals. Dryer racks can usually be purchased separately.  
Venting Must Be Vented - Over 95% of new dryer models must be vented to the outside of your home with a duct running from your dryer. A few ventless models are available if an outside duct is not practical.  


Control Ratings
Display No Display - One of the small group (20%) of new dryers that do not provide any visual information on wash program status and cycle time. Makes multi-tasking around the home a little more complicated.  
Controls Rotary-Electronic - Designed with a modern digital control system that makes cycle or option selection easy and convenient. About 85% of new dryers are now fitted with highly-functional electronic controls.
Delay
Start
No Delay Start - Can't be programmed to start at a later time. About 25% of new dryers have the convenience of drying the laundry at a time that best fits your schedule. More important for washers than dryers.  
Custom
Cycle
No Custom Cycle - Like most new dryers, you cannot program a custom cycle with temperature settings and options that you use the most. Convenient capability that's only available on about 30% of new dryers.  
Phone
Diagnosis
No Phone Diagnostics - You can't connect to the manufacturer's repair center and have dryer problems directly diagnosed over the phone. About 20% of new dryers have some type of phone connectivity.  
Smart
Grid
Not Smart-Grid Capable - Cannot be hooked into the present or future local utility smart-grid and programmed to operate when utility rates are lower. Most new dryers are still not smart-grid capable.
