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.

The 100% stainless steel tub cools faster and draws moisture to help prevent spots on glassware and water drops on plastic containers.

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.

Answer: 
Hello Kpal and thank you for your question.
There is no channel available to add a custom panel to the Maytag JetClean Plus Top Control Dishwasher (Model # MDB8959SBS). The dishwasher is slid into position and secured to the countertop or side-mounted to the adjacent cabinets. There is an access panel that is installed along the lower edge of the dishwasher. No trim kit is available.

Answer: 
Haven't tried gel, but it recommends that you use the gel packs - and came with one to try out. We've used powder because it's what we had left over from our old machine.

ann66t,
Below are the two different depths for this model. One is a depth with the handle and other depth is without. Your depth of 24.5" is average. With the handle, the dishwasher would stick out only 3". Thank you for viewing this Maytag home appliance.
Depth - Door Shut (with Handle) (in.) 27.5

Answer: 
There is no apparent steam discharge with this dishwasher. The only place that steam could escape is at the bottom front as the top and front panel do not have vents. We've used nearly every cycle and there is no noticeable steam during the dry cycle like some other dishwashers.

Answer: 
Choosyshopper,
The venting on this model is internal. The vents do not open until well after the cycle ends. The newer features doesn't realize the steam out of the dishwasher at the beginning which can damage countertops over time. The valve opens internally later on and little or no steam is there. The performance is the same if not better and you no longer have to worry about potential damage. Thank Read More

Customer Reviews

Rated 4.5 out of 5 by 197 reviewers.
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 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 4.0 out of 5.0 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. October 15, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by This is the best dishwasher we have owned. Deep tub will fit almost any larger pot / pan. The silverware tray is customizable and keeps everything spaced out nicely to ensure a good clean. The top rack adjust up or down, but even our tallest cup fits with the rack all of the way up. Each rack is very sturdy and slides smoothly. The installation was average in difficulty (due primarily because of the deep tub... everything is so close to the floor it gets a little tight getting your arms in there). The stainless steel tub is spotless after every wash. So many features to choose from. This dishwasher is very quiet and doesn't disrupt tv watching like our last one did. 2-4-6 hr delay is a huge bonus. So far we have no complaints. This product has been great! March 18, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 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 4.0 out of 5.0 by The dishwasher works well thus far. I have only had this dishwasher for 1 month but it is very quiet and cleans the dishes well. I can load more dishes into this dishwasher than I could with my old one. The only think I don't really like about this dishwasher is that the silverware has to be put into a basket with slots and it takes more time loading and empyting the silverware. You can remove the slot tray but then it doesn't seem as though the silverware gets as clean. Overall I'd say this is a very good product. April 15, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Great dishwahser I've learned over the years that you can not rely on every model within a brand to be great. This Maytaq model is great. I did a lot of research. Read a lot of reviews and looked at many different brands. For quality, features, price and most important cleaning, this was the one. I got a great sale price. It's very quiet and cleans excellent. The only draw back is, no vent to let steam escape. I use lemi-shine in the wash and lemi-shine in the rinse aid. Have no spots or film. But since it has no vent, the tub still has water in it. Even with the extra dry option turned on. The dishes are dry but not the tub. Only ran it about 4 times so don't know how well it will hold up. Cleaning is most important to me. I gave it the test with lots of food left on the dishes. Cleaned them great. October 10, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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. November 20, 2013
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Good features, but top rack a problem Runs quietly, cleans well, but top rack rolls out automatically, preventing access to the lower rack (requires two hands to load lower--one to hold upper rack and possibly caused by poor installation. April 15, 2014
