When it comes to dependability, this ENERGY STAR qualified dishwasher doesn't mess around. It features premium rack glides, a 10-year limited parts warranty and the industry's most powerful motor that's tested to 2X Life. And because of the ((50 dBA)) QuietSeries sound package, it's our quietest model ever. The 100% stainless steel tub cools faster and draws moisture to help prevent spots on glassware and water drops on plastic containers. There's no need to rinse off dried-on food thanks to the ToughScrub Plus option and a powerful 4-blade stainless steel chopper. For even more cleaning power, the Jetclean Plus Steam cycle cleans everything from your messiest pans to your finest stemware with high pressure spray jets and steam. And because all Maytag dishwashers are designed, engineered and assembled in the U.S.A., you can buy this model with genuine American Pride.

Rated 4.5 out of 5 by 277 reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Would be FIVE Stars if not for... We had our DW professionally installed through HD (which I HIGHLY recommend)- but we soon realized that it never finished a cycle and was defective. The electronics were all messed-up so we had it replaced (under warranty) after some extensive troubleshooting with Maytag and HD. A royal pain especially when it took 11 days from the 1st install to have a new unit delivered and installed. (this does NOT reflect in my rating) Despite that- we LOVE this new washer with two exceptions that only after install did we realize we don't like but can live with: (1) The status and cycle lights are on TOP of the door- no indicators are on the front of the door. So unless you install the unit so the DW is protruding from your counter-top, you won't know the cycle status without opening the door. This annoyance was exacerbated during the problems with our first unit that never completed a cycle. Per the Installation Guide the DW is designed to be installed flush to your counter-top to keep the 'clean' look- but its just not truly user friendly that way. At the beginning, you may have to open the door to see the status. We now know when its truly finished and know where to look for the glowing 'complete' light under the counter top... (2) The bottom dish carriage derails (full or empty) if it isn't pulled straight-out. This happened with the first unit as well, so its a design flaw and we can live with it. If not for these two items, its a 5 out of 5 stars because I never knew that dishes could be so clean from a washer- its just spectacular! June 4, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by I love this Dishwasher I spent several weeks comparing dishwashers and had it narrowed down to 2- either the Maytag or a Whirlpool. I went with the Maytag and am so happy I did. This machine cleans excellent...Gave it the ultimate test with my sons dishes which sat in his room for a least a week. Did NOT wash them at all. Used the steam option and assumed I would have some dirty dishes after.....But no! everything was spotless and sparkling... I did invest in some rinse aid and have been using the Cascade platinum soap pellets(2 came with the dishwasher). The dishwasher is so quiet...we can hardly tell its on and running. My last one required the TV to be turned up when it was on. I would hightly recommend this product... September 4, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by Best dishwasher we have had for years but...... We love this Dishwasher. Stainless tub, quiet, cleans really well. And it has a disposal which so many no longer have. But there are a couple of problems. The lower rack can come out really easy, there are no real tracks so be careful. I had read that many complained the front control panel failed.....well it just did, less than a year old. Fortunately it is still under warranty, and I am buying an extended warranty right now. The repair tech said they did away with push buttons and the new electronic controls are affected by heat and moisture Summary, we love this unit, best we have had in years but bite the bullet and add the warranty, you will need it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by This puppy cleans After the Samsung died again, we decided not to put the cost of another service call into it. Looked very hard at the Whirlpool machines in the same price range, but noticed that the reviewers of the Maytag were highly enthusiastic. Reviewing the models in the store, the Maytag just seemed better (I know, they are the same company): the utensil cage moves around more, there is a steam clean function, the top rack looked like you could park a truck in it. So the Maytag is is and we are sooooooo happy with this dishwasher. The basket in the top is super convenient for lids and such. Both racks are very easy to load. The flatware baskets can be moved pretty much wherever you want and the corner basket for large utensils works very nicely for cooking spoons, spatulas and the like. This machine gets the dishes clean. We may have forgotten what clean dishes look like (I'll simply say, never buy a Samsung anything), but glasses, bowls, forks, knives, everything come out sparkling. Super quiet, never hear it running. And loads of options - steam clean, power clean, heat dry, delay start, and so on. And finally, the boss is very happy with the black front. It is sleek and blends very well with the rest of the kitchen; we have black granite countertops and it is an awesome match. We are super happy with our choice. Go Maytag! November 10, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by It works great an is really quiet. I shopped around for several weeks for a dishwasher. According to CR this is a middle of the road quality machine. However, the only negative thing they said was that it was noisy. I disagree. I have a very open floorplan, and we can barely hear it running. If there is a negative, it would be that the normal cycle takes a long time to finish. It cleans well, is quiet, and other than some puddling on the deep bottom rims of some of our glasses, it dries thoroughly. May 7, 2013
