Answer

LongWaterLine, detergent manufacturers require a minimum incoming water temp of 120 degrees. Without this, you will have issues with your water not dissolving detergent as well as drying performance. We recommend following the user guide that is provided with the dishwasher and you are able to run hot water at your sink before starting your dishwasher to ensure you meet the temperature requirements.

TRACZEE, we understand how concerning it can be when you read customer comments on the Internet, and how it may lead you to believe there may be an issue with your appliance model. But please remember that we sell thousands and thousands of appliances. As concerning as it is that several consumers have had the same or similar issues with an appliance, it does not mean there is a manufacturing defect with that entire model line.

I would say it's about as quiet as a ceiling fan. If your house isn't completely silent, you may need to get very close to hear it.

Top rack fell off after 2 years of use
Customer review from maytag.com logo
Top rack left side rail welds rusted and broke. Rack hanging loose. I have to assume soon this will happen to the left side rail. Only 2 years old. Use 2-3 times a week. Many others have reported the exact same problem. Very disappointed with this basic quality flaw. Previously I had a Maytag dishwasher for 18 years with minor problems. See pictures.

New house, new dishwasher!
Customer review from maytag.com logo
We bought and installed this dishwasher last Tuesday and my husband had no trouble installing it. It rinses quickly between washes and the wash cycle is so quiet! Dishes come out clean and sparkling! It’s like a little blue Maytag man sitting under my counter scrubbing away! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rusty and Weak Top Tray
Customer review from maytag.com logo
We had this installed in May 2017. A family of 3 we get weekly or 2 times a week usage out of our unit. While we enjoyed the features of adjustable upper tray perhaps 2 times the rack has fallen on one side!!!! It appears as though the saudering has come apart. On further inspection, the track is rusting. Given that this is a dishwasher, constantly exposed to water, this type of failure should not be expected. This is not something that YouTube can fix! Maytag- help!

Great value for the dollar
Customer review from maytag.com logo
I was about to order a new dishwasher from another manufacturer when I saw this Maytag model online. The reviews convinced me to give it a try, even though I've never owned a Maytag dishwasher before. Build quality appears to be very good, and after the first few cycles I can tell you it's MUCH quieter than the expensive "premium" brand dishwasher it replaced. I also like the clean lines...it compliments my kitchen very nicely. Now let's see how well it holds up over time. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Quiet Maytag
Customer review from maytag.com logo
This replaces a Maytag over 20 years old--it did not fit into our space, but we plan on new countertop next year and will raise the height. The dishwasher is very quiet, and takes about 2 1/2 hours to run a cycle. I have had to hand wash or rerun a few items that did not clean during wash. The finish has not shown fingerprints and looks nice. I don't care for the lower basket configuration--rather difficult to work with. I don't love this one like I did the old one, but it was very reasonably priced and I am trying to work with it. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
