Product Overview

  • Most powerful motor on the market among leading brands
  • Heated Dry ups temperatures to get dishes nice and dry
  • Touch controls provide seamless access to powerful cleaning
Maytag builds a strong, yet quiet dishwasher with a Fingerprint Resistant Stainless-Steel exterior and stainless-steel tub for years of tough cleaning. With the most powerful dishwasher motor on the market and a 4-blade stainless steel chopper, enjoy mighty cleaning power that’s quiet at only 47 dBA. Plus, we stand behind it 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 pre rinsing, 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
  • 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)
  • Maytag dishwashers are covered by a 10-year limited parts warranty on the racks, chopper blade and stainless steel tub. So when we say you can count on your dishwasher for years, we mean it. (See warranty for complete details)
  • 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
  • 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

Is iron black a true black or more of a black stainless finish? I prefer top controls, but I am afraid this shade is not a true black to match the rest of the appliances in my kitchen.
Asked by: Bayoubebe
Hello Bayoubebe, the MDB7959SHK will have a different look if you already have black appliances in your Kitchen. The MDB8989SHB might be a better match https://www.homedepot.com/p/Maytag-Front-Control-Built-In-Tall-Tub-Dishwasher-in-Black-50-dBA-MDB4949SHB/306056770?keyword=MDB8989SHB&semanticToken=203t0000011_20190625500236_f005+203t0000011+%3E++st%3A%7Bmdb8989shb%7D%3Ast+cnn%3A%7B9%3A1%7D+cnr%3A%7B7%3A1%7D+f%3A%7Bb%7D+cnv%3A%7B0%3A0%7D+vc%3A%7B1%7D+oos%3A%7B0%3A1%7D+dln%3A%7B564607%7D+tgr%3A%7BEnriched+Product+Info%7D+qu%3A%7Bmdb8989shb%7D%3Aqu

Tap the Sanitize Cycle button on the control panel before starting the dishwasher, it's just a press of a button :)
