Product Overview

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.

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.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Unreliable Had 2 problems in 2 years of use. The first was solved by Customer Service. The second is the drain pump failed(after 2 yrs.!!??) costing ~ $230 in repairs. Never again Maytag.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from unreliable second problem in 3 years. now know why people buy bosch and haier!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Functionally Adequate - Easy to Use -Slight leakage Good unit! Low noise, attractive and easy to use. One downside that we have been unable to solve is the period seepage of water onto the insulating material at the bottom of the door. We have tried all the recommendations and the issue still persists. We have always use the Cascade soap packets, all filter and drains are clear, float switch seems to work and unit is level. Getting the bottom of the door insulation material damp at times is not a deal breaker as it dries out fast and has only a couple times actually dripped on floor.

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 Great Product This dishwasher is the best we have ever owned. The unit is super quiet and does a great job of cleaning the dirty dishes. The adjustable top rack is a great feature, especially for wine glasses. Yes it is a little pricey, but worth every penny. You can spend less but you will lose a whole lot more. The fact that is made in the USA is a real plus.

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 It has great features. Other than how quiet it is, the first thing I noticed after using it the very first time was that my old flatwear looked new. I looked at the designs on the back & front & even compared to things still in the drawer thinking it couldn't be that obvious. I knew then that my dishes would be as clean as possible. The lay out of the baskets lets you make several different set ups depending upon what you need washed at any given time. The top rack being adjustable is a nice feature for oversized serving dishes & cookware. I am still spellbound at the sound level with every wash. I just love it. I couldn't wish for more in a dishwasher.
