  • A dryer of a different shape that does an excellent job!

    Mar 26, 2003 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Very quiet and efficient
    Cons: The price is higher than most

    Summary: We were recently forced to replace our dryer. Well, forced isn't exactly correct... Our current dryer was 18+ years old, and getting parts was difficult. In all it's years, it had only failed once when the belt broke. I fixed that and put it back into ... read more

    Rated Show
    Pros: It dries.
    Cons: Lint problem.

    Summary: We replaced our old maytag washer and dryer (and vent hose) with the neptune and noticed an enormous increase in the amount of dryer lint deposited on everything within 5 feet of the vent on the patio, chairs, etc. I clean the filter before each load. I ... read more

    Pros: Good performance for first year; better purchase service warranty.
    Cons: Repair cost excessive.

    Summary: No vent problems found; takes too long to dry and moister collects at filter and door. This started after 4 years of use.  Tyring to diagnose myself because repair services cost too much.  Have printed parts list from Point & Click ... read more

    Rated Show
    Pros: Large capacity
    Cons: Very unreliable, always needs repair. Slow dry.

    Summary: We purchased our Maytag in August 2002 when we moved into our new home. We bought Maytag because supposedly the Maytag repairman never has anything to do because they are so reliable. That's a riot!!! We have both the Neptune washer and dryer and are ... read more

    Pros: quiet, nice style
    Cons: price tag!

    Summary: Paid the price for the reputation of a Maytag. Well now I am sending it back for a replacement! At one month old, the belt that turns the drum was in shreds. The Sears repairman came and didn't have a belt with him. Had to order one. So that was 2 ... read more

  • Neptune Dryer keeps up but has serious lint filter problems.

    May 16, 2005 by
    Rated Show
    Pros: This dryer works quickly and efficiently. Multiple settings provide a wide range of drying options.
    Cons: The lint trap allows dangerous levels of lint to collect in the machine and vent.

    Summary: The delightful aspect of our Neptune electric dryer is its ability to dry loads as quickly as its companion washer can clean laundry. The downside is the potentially dangerous lint buildup due to a highly inefficient lint filter. Very little of the ... read more

    Cons: Unreliable, Terrible Service from Maytag, Loud

    Summary: I deeply regret the day I purchased my Maytag Neptune (Model MDE5500AYW) dryer. My dryer (which is still under warranty from Maytag) has been totally nonfunctional for over a week, and the Maytag repairman just left the house. They're ordering parts ... read more
