Product Overview

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

Quiet and sanitized!
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I’ve been using my new Maytag dishwasher every night for the last month. I love the features!
by Mommyjk
Very pretty
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I’m finishing up renovating my kitchen and haven’t used this gorgeous dishwasher yet. Will review again after a few months
by PattiA
Great features!
[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)
by Lunaeclipsed85
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!
by Auntie Lano
Excellent performance
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] We installed the dishwasher by ourselves, with my wife. It was very easy, took us only 2 hours. The dishwasher is very quiet and cleans our dishes quite well.

Happy Maytag Birthday!

Quiet in the kitchen!
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Couldn't have made it trough the Holidays without this Gem. I replaced a my 10 year old Frigidaire, that came with the house with this Maytag. It has performed flawlessly so far. I have been pleasantly surprised by the cleaning power and how quiet it is. I would put some baked on dishes in my other washer to take off some of the stuff, and would need to leave the dish in for 1 or 2 more cycles. This bad boy never sees the same pot twice. I truthfully have not had to rewash anything! The stainless steel interior is just as shiny as it was new. It was an easy install and fit perfect.

I wanted a dishwasher that I could put dishes into without extensive pre-washing and a dishwasher...
I wanted a dishwasher that I could put dishes into without extensive pre-washing and a dishwasher that didn't sound like a freight train. This fulfilled both requests. I put pots with dried milk and plates that contain dried food in this dishwasher and they are cleaned spotless. Sometimes I have to walk into the kitchen to ensure I turned the dishwasher is on as it is very quiet. Every once in a while the dishes will clink. The only issue I have noticed in the year since installation is a slight odor coming from the dishwasher which could be due to the fact that I do not use it as extensively as larger families. I only use the recommended soap which is Cascade Platinum as well as the recommended cleaners. Note, once I used the cleaner the smell went away. Highly recommend this dishwasher.

Great Dishwasher
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I have had this dishwasher for a little more than a month, and so far I'm really liking it. It is a nice upgrade for us. We personally love how the buttons are exposed on the front, and the handle is sleek. It does a nice job cleaning the dishes and I haven't had any problems with it not being able to effectively clean most items (much different from my last dishwasher). For the price, I really think it is a great buy!
by MarilynCF
Happy with purchase
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I love that this holds a LOT of dishes, is quiet when running and does an excellent job cleaning. Love the quality inside and outside. One recommendation is to lock the controls by holding down lock for 3 full seconds and to remove the control, hold down FIRMLY for a full 3 seconds.
