Clean dishes start with better parts. And with a motor that's tested to twice the average dishwasher life expectancy, this is an ENERGY STAR qualified dishwasher you can count on.

The Steam Sanitize option feature kills 99.999 percent of food soil bacteria, giving you confidence that your dishes are clean. Loading big dishes is simple because the tiered upper rack makes room in both racks for tall items. Not only does this hard-working dishwasher get dishes clean, the redesigned 2.5-in. flush console offers a sleek look. And because all Maytag dishwashers are designed, engineered and assembled in the U.S.A., you can buy this model with genuine American Pride.

Customer Questions & Answers

do you have to have the dishes dry with high heat?

Asked by: Anonymous
No you can choose to turn off the heated dry cycle. I would recommend a rinse aid if you choose that option.

I already have a 5 year old Maytag dishwasher, ($800 scratch and dent with , love it love it love it, something is wrong with controls as it will only

no visible scars or dents for $270!) love it, love it, love it, it's only problem is the controls and will only consistently run through the Insta -wash cycle for 47 min, I don't think a new dishwasher is needed. Biggest question: do any of your models have 3 sliding racks like this one, love this feature!!! No add'l pictures, video or captions are needed. Thank you.

Control is usually all on 1 board probably costing $300. 8 years old, get a new one.

Dishes are not getting clean; also, a white film on some of them

Using normal wash with rinse aid and heated dry

is installation included with home delivery?

if so, how much is charged for delivery and installation? installation would include removal of existing built-in and plumbing.
Asked by: Anonymous
Shipping, installation, and removal was free with my order. We had already removed our old dishwasher because it had leaked and we needed to have the area dried.

JetClean Plus Front Control Dishwasher in White with Steam Cleaning is rated 3.7 out of 5 by 106.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from It’s not real fancy, but runs well, is reasonably quiet and looks good. We’ve only had the dishwasher for a few weeks so cannot yet judge energy efficiency (beyond what the manufacturer says) nor how the product will hold up. So far, though, it’s fine. The choices of cycles with options cover the bases, the capacity more than meets our needs. (We are a couple and run it every couple of days.) It’s reasonably quiet and runs well. We’d buy it again.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Avoid Maytag Dishwashers - Control Panel Issues We purchased similar model in May of 2011 and the control panel just broke leaving the "Start" button non-functioning and rendering the unit inoperable. I guess we should consider ourselves lucky as others with the same unit had their panels break just a year after purchase. It amazes me that a company with a reputation like Maytag can produce a product that causes 100's of complaints surrounding the same issue and they fail to rectify what is clearly a design deficiency with the product. Maytag offered to send a repairman out at our expense to fix the unit at an estimated cost of upwards of $300. Thanks but no thanks. I will no longer purchase Maytag products and urge others I know to avoid their products as well. Junk.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Disappointed. Should have at least showroomed the item before buying online. Online purchase and home delivery were fine. I replaced a comparable 7 year old Maytag model that the control board had failed. To replace the part was over $300. For an additional $100, I could get a new comparable unit. I typically purchase mid level basic appliances. I don't see a use or value in extra gadgetry or additional features that I won't use. For example in a dishwasher, the costly stainless interior. The life and durability of todays appliances suggest to me that I will be replacing the unit long before it will rust. Essentially, it needs to wash and dry dishes and we may run a load 4 times per week. The issues I have with the unit are the rack configuration and the heated drying capability. The interior racks are somewhat less deep than our previous Maytag. This and the all vertical pegs reduce the load size which requires more frequent operation. The unit also requires the use of a drying agent and still when operated on heated dry leaves the dishes and the machine interior very wet. If I had it to do over, I would go a dealer and physically look at a unit before purchasing online. I suspect I would also spend more money. This unit is not a good value.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Satisfied so far Does the job. Extremely quiet. Clean dishes and flatware. Just be sure you use JetDry or similar agent as called for in the manual. (I would imagine vinegar would work as well, but don't quote me.)

Rated 1 out of 5 by from HORRIBLE! HORRIBLE! HORRIBLE!! Purchased May 2013, control panel went June 2014. I can't believe the poor quality Maytag has come to. So many people with the same problem and I've yet to see ONE person who was accommodated by Maytag. I will have to buy another dishwasher now, since repairing this one will cost almost as much as a new one and there is NO guarantee it will continue to work. Will NEVER purchase Maytag again!!!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Prepare For Maintenance I bought this dishwasher (or the same in the series) and within two years I've paid for maintenance on it more than the cost of the unit. A quick google search will reveal users who have been having issues and the parts and installation to fix cost the same/more than the entire unit. This is a disposable dishwasher. Use it for two years, then buy another.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Maytag dishwasher is worthless. After one month the tub would not drain after the cycles were done. Warrenty repairman said that dishes could not have any food particles or grease on them when put in the dishwsher.
Date published: 2013-02-05
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Dishwasher detergent is the problem! This dishwasher (or any other apparently) won't clean dishes unless you use a product called Lemon Bright with it. I'm told they removed all phosferous from dishwasher detergent so dishwashers leave a film, espcially on glass. I tried Lemon Bright at the suggestion of a neighbor, and now the glassware comes out sparkling! Anybody that sells a dishwasher should mention this!
