Customer Questions & Answers

Is it quiet when it's running?

Asked by: Anonymous
Yes. It is very quiet when it is running. It is even quieter when it is broken which has happened twice in the last two and a half years.

On the bottom rack, left front corner, what is the purpose of the awkward stemware design that seems to waste that space?

Asked by: Anonymous
You can fold it away or remove it. If you have costly stemware, you will appreciate that it stabilizes each stem, so they do not move, thus they cannot get damaged.

does it last longer than 2 years?

Asked by: renate
Well, we bought our dishwasher on 11/13 and the circuit panel needs replaced now, 3 years and 4 months later. So, yes, it does last longer than 2 years but now we have to buy a new dishwasher or spend $500 to fix this one, which is no longer covered by warranty. Not very happy. Wish I could change my review but it's a moot point as this model has been discontinued.

Does the top rack have a button on each side you can push to raise and lower it or do you actually have to take the rack out of the track?

I've seen two different ways that Whirlpool top racks adjust. One option requires you to take the rack off the track to move it up/down. The other option only requires you to push a button on each side of the rack to raise/lower it.
Asked by: Anonymous
Mine has a button on each side to raise and lower the whole rack. Easy to use.

I think the Maytag repairman is no longer just sitting around with machines that are designed this poorly. This has broken twice and it was due to poor design of the touch panel and front sheet of stainless steel. The first time it broke was right at one year and the warranty covered the repair which was the replacement of the touch panel. About a year and a half after that it broke again and it was out of warranty so I fixed it myself. The front of this washer is not sealed from occasional water running off the counter and connections get corroded and cease to function inside of the front panel. I suppose it isn't a surprise that this has been discontinued and my review doesn't matter anyway. They keep sending me stuff to extend the warranty which it not a very good sign of quality. When it works, it works great!

We purchased this dishwasher in August of 2012, by September of 2013 it was leaking water all over the floor and they wouldn't warranty it (2 weeks over). It was a seal issue, it would come loose at the top and fall off, causing it to leak. It is now 4 years and 5 months old and unplugged. Today it smelled like it had caught on fire during the dry cycle, no sign of anything falling near the heating element or anything wrong, just smells burnt. Had our last maytag dishwasher 14 years and it was fantastic, left it at the last house, big mistake. Will never purchase another Maytag, which is now owned by Whirlpool.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Problems with control panel The control panel has had intermittent problems since it was under warrantee. We had a call in for service (under warrantee), but the service trip did not happen. The control panel buttons do not work sometimes and we never know what mode of operation it is in. Online discussion shows that this model has a lot of problems with this issue. Now we are ordering a new control panel out of our pocket to try to fix it. I will be doing the work myself.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best dishwasher I bought this dishwasher 2 months ago and absolutely love it. Cleans and dries the dishes beautifully so quiet that I have to check and see if it is running. The racks hold everything in place and glide in and out so effortlessly. Best appliance choice you could make. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent dishwasher with incredible cleaning performance I recently moved and the new house is beautiful and well appointed with high end appliances except for the dishwasher. We came from a house with a Kenmore Elite and were pretty spoiled. The first thing we needed to do was find a new dishwasher! This model offers incredible style and value for your money. The model is extremely quiet. When I first installed it and ran a load I thought it was loud but I hadn't yet put the insulated base plate back one, after doing that the dishwasher went nearly silent. The wash quality is better than what we had with our Kenmore Elite, is cheaper and is made in the USA. Highly recommended. Be careful when purchasing the required installation kit if you have PEX water lines, it did not include what I needed. I've attached a photo of the items I used to connect to my 3/8" PEX, I hope this helps someone else.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great unit so far. Lets just start that we are very pleased with this unit. It deliveres great clean results and dry dishes. We recently replaced higher end LG unit ($900.) with this one and couldnt be more happier. The LG altough it had more features it did not deliver clean and dry dishes from day one not to mention the bad odor we could not get rid of regardles of what solution we used to clean it. Finally after just 4 years of service it failled and and the repair bill would have been $535. and stil still have a smelly dishwasher. This Maytag does the job very well. Its quiet, cleans very well, offers a heated dry option and my wife is happier than ever. ( that makes me happy lol).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pricey but oh so worth it! I had purchased a high end dishwasher (kitchenaide) 3 years ago and hated it - you had to wash the dishes before putting them in the dishwasher, it was awful. I purchased this being skeptical and hoping for the best and it did not disappoint. The dishwasher works great (it does take a long time but if you run it at night, who cares!) I have had a few times where there is still a bit of water on the dishes after the cycle is done but it's no big deal. I haven't tried all the different cycles but have used the light load and the "sense when clean" cycle. Very quiet and sleek looking.
