Questions & Answers

Is it quiet when it's running?

Asked by: Sam
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: Rk
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: vharbin
Mine has a button on each side to raise and lower the whole rack. Easy to use.

JetClean Plus Top Control Dishwasher in Stainless Steel with Stainless Steel Tub and Steam Cleaning-DISCONTINUED is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 1081.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Worst dishwasher ever I've had this dishwasher for 4 years. Called service company because it was leaking water. They replaced door gasket. Called back next day because it was still leaking. Was told the drain was clogged and to clean it with white vinegar. 4 years and over $400 later I'm still cleaning every other use with vinegar and it's still leaking.

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 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 Pricey but oh so worth it! I had purchased a high end dishwasher (kitchenaide) 3 years ago and hated it - you had to wash the dishes before putting them in the dishwasher, it was awful. I purchased this being skeptical and hoping for the best and it did not disappoint. The dishwasher works great (it does take a long time but if you run it at night, who cares!) I have had a few times where there is still a bit of water on the dishes after the cycle is done but it's no big deal. I haven't tried all the different cycles but have used the light load and the "sense when clean" cycle. Very quiet and sleek looking.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from HANDSDOWN ONE OF THE BEST DISHWASHER AROUND. I was skeptical about this model, because I saw few repeated reviews (maytag sponsored) in all 3 sites , home depot , lowes and sears. But I took a leap of faith based on few genuine buyers reviews. So far they are spot on ,its quite ,well built looks great. And the main WOW factor is how clean dishes comes out. Things we have tried so far 1) Dishes with hard food particles 2) Greasy dishes 3) Drinkwares and Silverwares we loaded all of 'em without any pre-rinse. Dishwasher blew us away with the performance. Definitely this a good buy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love our new dishwasher!!! We really have no complaints about this product but we only have been using it for about a month now. I love the smooth slide of the top drawer. I now understand what other posters meant. This unit is really very quiet that you have to check the lights before opening it. The lights are at the top so you may not want the unit flushed into the cabinets. My husband did the install and to no fault of his, there was a leak coming from the middle section of the unit. Called Home Depot and they gave me Maytag number. Maytag had the unit service and the guy fixed it in less than 15 minutes. He pulled a tube out, applied some seal and reconnected the tube and its like no leak happened. Maytag also asked if our floor was damaged and it was not because we have tiles. Love, love this dishwasher - we hope that it will lasts long.
