  • Most powerful motor on the market among leading brands
  • Heated Dry ups temperatures to get dishes nice and dry
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

Front Control Built-In Tall Tub Dishwasher in Fingerprint Resistant Stainless Steel, 50 dBA is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 626.

The 'Quick' cycle is good for most loads and actually gets things clean in an hour and a half with the heated dry. The "Auto' cycle is good for large or packed loads. The 'Normal' cycle is not good because it is the Energy Star cycle. I love that there is a food grinder/disposer and I don't have to clean a filter. However, large pieces of food will stay in the bottom and will need to be removed by hand. Overall cleans very good. The door drips a whole lot of water if you open it during a cycle. I've tried a couple of different ways to open the door, but nothing helps this problem and a lot of water drips out every single time. There is a fair amount of moisture on the inside of the unit after the dry cycle, although the dishes are almost completely dry. Opening the door right after it finishes cures that, but we're not always right there to do it. The only option for a delay is 4 hours. The controls are too sensitive and a casual brush will start/stop the unit. We have to use the control lock constantly. These negatives make it a 4 start rating rather than a 5. Overall a very good unit that looks nice and cleans very good.

The best I can remember, I believe this is my fourth dishwasher and every replacement dishwasher had it's good features and some features that your old dishwasher had that you liked better. This Maytag is really quiet, and it cleaned the load of dirty dishes we had after a spaghetti dinner to where they shined. The stainless steel tub is also a great feature not only for looks, but one of my other dishwashers started leaking because the tub had deteriorated and I feel confident that will not be an issue with this one. One thing I do not like as well on this dishwasher compared to my dishwasher that was replaced by this one is the limited ability to adjust the racks and the top rack is a few inches smaller as well. This will not be as big as an issue for us now as it would have been when there were six of us here at home. If your family dirties a lot of dishes, you might need to look at a different model. If I could have done so, I would have rated it a 4 1/2 stars.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good Value We got a great price from Lowes on this model. It does stick out further than the one we replaced even though the dimensions are the same. One issue we are having is the Lock button to keep it from starting up a wash cycle because a person stands with their belly or bottom touching the buttons. If you stand in front of the lock button and you are touching it you may not realize you touched long enough to remove the lock and the washer starts up. As the woman of the house I keep an eye on it, but the men in the house don't and being so quiet they don't know they turned it on. Also the top rack has multiple slants to the cup and glass racks so it is hard to get larger mugs and cups to fit on 2 of the rows leaving really only one full size row. It is so quiet you would not know it was on, however I think that insulation may have taken some of the interior space as I can't fit the same amount we use to inside after a family get togethers. Over all it meets our needs. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

You know how this story goes... The dishwasher leaked 4 uses later on Thanksgiving day. This cannot be returned as it’s a major appliance. Repairman does not know what happened. Can’t comment much on features as this is quite expensive box.

The previous one failed at several plastic parts, in a short time - however, it was still the dishwasher I wanted to buy again. This is simply because the "Quick" cycle is good enough for general use, and takes only one hour. It's like having a dishwasher from the good old days. That said, this new version has two annoying features that its predecessor did not: (1) there is no count-down timer anymore, and (2) there is a loud end-of-cycle beep that is not silenceable. This is also the only/cheapest model on the market that has a stainless steel tub, its own hard-food disposer that you don't have to clean, and good capacity including for light plastics on the top rack.

Absolutely positively THE worst appliance I've ever purchased in my adult life (56). Purchased this dishwasher in 2015, and within 6 months we had to "baby" it to get decent performance. I can debate EVERY feature in the specification and product description list, but I'll provide some info to be certain that others know what to expect. Pots and pans cycle is 3+ hours Racks sag under the weight of a normal load, knocking water arms off kilter Water arms clog CONSTANTLY Machine does NOT perform without Rinse Aid... buy the large bottle Food chopper cannot handle so much as a kernel of corn Every water orifice becomes gummed if your serveware hasn't been completely rinsed Had FOUR service calls including Maytag during three year period Customer cannot access filter or parts Machine and racks are small/family of four two loads per day If ANYTHING gets caught under heating elements, it will bake it and smell will last for days THE SMELL OF THE BAKED FOOD LITERALLY LASTS FOR DAYS If door is opened to add item, you get a flood of water, no matter what ABSOLUTELY POSITIVELY DO NOT BUY

Just a couple of things I do not love....the first thing: when you close the door, you can very easily turn on the dishwasher depending on where you touch it. Many times I am just leaning against the counter and I can turn it on by just leaning on it. It does have a lock out setting, which is another step to use, but that does limit the number of times I turn it on by accident. Secondly, the inside of the stainless steel tub stays wet almost all of the time. I don't use my dishwasher but twice a week and the old water droplets on the door and sides starts to have an odor. I use the heated dry option, but it is still always wet inside. As far as the cleaning goes, I think it does an amazing job. I really do love this dishwasher, just a couple of minor issues that I can live with.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from It seems to work fairly well but there are some major design flaws: Starting with the upper rack:... It seems to work fairly well but there are some major design flaws: Starting with the upper rack: The outer (left and right) sections of the upper rack are too narrow. My standard 10 oz. glass tumblers barely fit in the front half and are too wide for the rear. To make matters worse, the sides of the rack are completely vertical. This causes lots of water to be trapped in recessed cup bottoms. The water either dries and leaves a big water spot (even with soft water) or doesn't dry. Also, the middle spray arm, affixed to the bottom of the upper rack, is fairly short so tall skinny glasses on the outer corners don't come clean. The rack design is compromised in the name of standardization. This dishwasher's sister machines have an upper rack that can be raised or lowered. To make room for the drawer slides and the mechanism that allows the rack to be moved (on those dishwashers) it was narrowed. This machine uses the same rack and slides but uses a tall bulky bracket in place of the tall bulky adjustment mechanism. The bottom rack is better but also flawed. Upper rack slides and bracket are mostly at fault, again. They should have attached the upper rack slides at the bottom of the upper rack and leaned the right and left sides of the rack over the slides, circa every dishwasher 20 years ago. Instead they're attached well below the upper rack right where the upper few inches of sheet pans or pizza pans could rest against the side of the tub and still easily clear a longer spray arm. Really it's not the slides as much as the wide brackets that extend from them to the upper rack. My final issue with the lower section is the huge silverware rack and it's placement. I'm considering ordering a smaller Whirlpool silverware rack and moving it from the side to the front of the lower rack. Incidentally, Whirlpool uses the exact same tub but their longer middle spray arm makes it more difficult to work those sheet pans in. My final issue is with the heated dry options. Heated dry defaults to On for most cycles. If air dry is preferred you must deselect heated dry prior to running every load. This is just weird, they tout high-efficiency but default to heated dry? Why not write a few lines of code and allow the user to select the default? Or, just retain the settings from the last run. Smaller motors, and resulting longer cycles, for efficiency ... or something else?$?
