ok, this is something that i was just asking in another thread about maytag dryers. one dryer had no buttons, just the center timer control knob.

there was another dryer with 4 buttons which brian explained to me were:

so, what would the 2 buttons on this maytag dryer be???
and i'm guessing the 2 buttons make this dryer a lower end model compared to the 4-button model??

i never knew washing & drying clothes could be so confusing???

Probably Regular and Delicate heat.

i'm trying to figure out the differences in the model numbers of the maytag center dials. even though i don't use a dryer that much myself, i usually hang my clothes outside on the clothesline. but for the times that i wash blankets or sheets, i'm sure a dryer would come in handy. not to mention when washing on rainy days. when a dryer is definitely needed. i would probably want the option of "low/delicate" heat for my polyester blend blouses that i use.

i want to figure out which maytag center dial dryer would be the best fit for me & my needs. so if & when i decide to buy me a matching maytag center dial dryer for my GA208, i will know which model to look for. and since it would be blankets & sheets that i would be using a dryer for, i am guessing that my best bet would be an "S.O.H." dryer compared to an "H.O.H.".

i can wash my sheets in the standard sized tub of the A208 but i'm pretty sure i can't wash a blanket in the A208 but i can take it to the laundromat and bring it home to dry. not to mention, i don't think i would like having to reach all the way to the back of the drum, to clean out the lint filter.

so, i'm trying to figure out what the buttons are & how many buttons there are total. so far, i'm seeing 2 buttons & 4 buttons. with 4 having the extra options of "normal dryness" and "extra dryness".

To the best of my memory

4 buttons on a SOH would be regular-delicate and regular dry/extra dry.
