About This Product

Maytag builds a strong, yet quiet dishwasher with a Fingerprint Resistant Stainless Steel exterior and stainless steel tub to stand up to years of the toughest cleaning jobs. We've thrown in the most powerful dishwasher motor on the market and a 4-blade stainless steel chopper. Plus, we stand behind what we've built with a 10-year limited parts warranty.

  • Maytag dishwashers feature the most powerful motor on the market. Powerful enough to handle dried-on egg yolk and peanut butter without prerinsing, this motor can handle your dirtiest dishes
  • No more scraping plates. The 4-blade stainless steel chopper disintegrates the food particles that come off your dishes so they don't end up recirculating and sticking to your dishes and glassware
  • The POWERBLAST cycle removes stuck-on food with high pressure spray jets, increased temperature and hot steam to finish the job
  • Up the temperature to reduce excess moisture inside your dishwasher and get dishes nice and dry
  • You're in control with a simple tap of your finger. Smooth, tap-to-activate settings give you quick and seamless access to powerful cleaning
  • Easy-to-clean, fingerprint resistant stainless steel helps prevent smudges and keeps your dishwasher looking as good on the outside as it works on the inside
  • This dishwasher is made to perform at only 50 dBA, so you can enjoy the cleaning power of a mighty Maytag at a low noise level. (Per IEC standards.)
  • We packed in sturdy stainless steel that's ready for cycle after cycle of tough cleaning. Built for high heat and less likely to crack than plastic, stainless steel materials also resist stains to help keep your dishwasher looking good for years to come
  • The Steam Sanitize option lets you confidently wash important items with a high-temperature rinse that removes 99.999% of food soil bacteria
  • The full stainless steel tub is built of stainless steel from top to bottom, so its tough enough to handle high heat and resist cracking and staining for years
  • Our 2X Life tested motor is built to last and tested to prove it. (Twice life testing based on accelerated 20-year life testing, normal cycle, average use.)
  • After a big meal, you'll need room to fit all your glasses or plates. The tiered upper rack is designed like stadium seating to hold everything from small saucers to large plates and taller glasses
  • Premium DURAGUARD nylon racks have a heavy-duty coating that resists rust
  • The end-of-cycle indicator lets you know exactly where the dishwasher is in the wash cycle: when it's in process, when it's finished and when the Steam Sanitize option is in use
  • ENERGY STAR certified dishwashers use less water and energy than standard models, helping you save money on utility bills
  • Whirlpool Corporation started in 1911 as a small company in Benton Harbor, Michigan. Today we are a global home appliance business selling products around the world. We are proud of our American heritage and ingenuity that have driven innovation for over 100 years

            Our Maytag dishwasher has been nothing but junk. Mostly cheap plastic parts. I just love the fancy little “10 year warranty” plaque on the front that is for the tub, racks, and blade. So when the control board melts, you’re out of luck! No warranty for that. Done with Maytag garbage! Maytag used to stand for quality, but no more! Maytag has lost me as a customer. Buying a Bosch next.

              I have been loading dishwashers for 40 years. Our last one was 20 years old and worked wonderfully. I use the highest quality dishwashing detergent. I rinse dishes thoroughly and load properly. even if I use high heat and power blast dishes are dirty.

                  [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I like the Fingerprint Resistant Stainless Steel exterior and stainless steel tub; the Sanitize option (with Covid) and the 4 Hour delay. It is very quiet.

                      Good but .....
                      [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] This dishwasher is heavy duty in almost every way. That is important. I like the stainless steel inside and out. Having a spray arm on top is wonderful too. The racks are also heavy duty. The one thing that doesn't make sense is the grinder. You can't simply put dishes with debris into the dishwasher and expect the debris to disappear. You still have to ensure that the debris is small enough to go through the grinder. So, you might as well rinse them before placing them in the dishwasher.

                            [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Got this a couple months ago and it’s a great dishwasher! First one that’s ever actually dried my dishes ( I’ve never had a new one before)

                              Excellent choice for dishwasher!!!
                              [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I’ve never had a dishwasher. I’m 68 yrs old and my hands have been my dishwasher my whole life. I was happy with that. Then we did a kitchen remodel and a dishwasher was part of the plan. Not only is it excellent at washing the dishes, but it looks nice and is easy to use. It was a lucky choice that the dishwasher we chose is a Maytag! It fit into our budget and had the energy features we wanted. And it was a Maytag! Also, our contractor was so pleased with it as well because it’s exactly the same one as he has. He couldn’t praise it enough which made us feel good about having it. It runs quiet and dishes are squeaky clean!!! I wholeheartedly recommend this Maytag if you are looking for a fine and reliable & smart looking dishwasher!
