Basics: This Vented Tumble Dryer is capable of handling a 3 kg load and comes in the dimensions of 850 x 595 x 575 mm that perfectly suits its load capacity. The controls of this dryer are both rotary type and push buttons that makes its robustness and durability fairly evident. The indications and the markings are user friendly and clearly legible. Again, the rectangular door opens fairly wide, is absolutely comfortable to load/unload and comes in very handy with bulkier items like towels and duvets etc.
Type: Being designed as a vented model it requires an outlet for the hose to be let out and hence requires to be installed close to some kind of outlet. This proves to be a perfect match for the space-conscious users. Again, when it comes to performance and energy efficiency, this dryer almost supersedes rest of the dryers in this category.
Programmes: With a handful of preset programmes looks like the dryer manages to satisfy most of the requirements of the fabrics and a family. Essentially this Vented Tumble Dryer has taken care of almost all basic programmes like Delicate Care, Pillow Dry, Iron Dry, Easy Iron Option, Extra Dry and Cupboard Dry. Additionally, it also has the Gentle and Anti-Crease features too onboard.
Following is a short description of the various pogrammes and functions on offer in this Maytag MDE2441AGW Vented Tumble Dryer:
- The delicate programme takes care of new and party wear clothing with less tumble action avoiding any formation of crease in he fabrics.
- With the pillow dry programme fabrics get dried nice and crispy almost instantaneously making them good to be used immediately.
- The iron and easy iron programme is yet another special programme that keeps formation of creases at bay thus making the task of ironing easy.
- Again the extra dry programme suits best all multi-layered fabrics with the kind of intensive pressure that it puts on drying.
Anti-Crease Function: This is an important feature of modern day dryers that works intermittently in both directions to avoid knotting of fabrics. This feature is highly welcome in such households where there is constant worry of permanent creasing.

Temperature Selector: Found in this model is a temperature selector that offers a choice between gentle and normal. This can be chosen based on the load and type of programme selected.
Verdict: Despite the dryer boasting of the best possible features, it still is a disappointment to see that it lacks the final cool function. Then again, the neat design and legible instructions sure does prove it to be competitive and helps users to operate the dryer confidently.
