If so many customer complained about the "door not close right and leaking" why the company not do some quality control on these part? It should be an easy fix, why?
Asked by: Wisconsinmom
We are having the exact same problem with the upper rack not aligning properly on one side. We cannot get the door to shut properly to run a load of dishes. We have owned this dishwasher about a month. We are very disappointed in the quality.

Will this dishwasher dry my dishes?

The Dishwasher looks and cleans great but the unit would pop open during mid cycle and release large amount of steam. If i resume the cycle, it would pop open the door again after some time. It also leaks through the door through many times. Maytag has a Rag Tag collection of Service company's who really want to prolong the problem rather than Fix it. I should have read all the reviews before purchasing it. I would stay away from MAYTAG. I never had issues like this with my previous dishwasher. STAY away from Maytag. Based upon their reviews, I would never purchase a Maytag appliance again.

This dishwasher leaks, no , it pours water down both sides on my new floors. I have to keep towels under it at all times. The door comes open in the middle of the cycle, and the alarm starts beeping and the green light flashes and water is everywhere! DO NOT PURCHASE THIS DISHWASHER. This company knows about this problem and continues to sell it to unsuspecting customers. SHAME ON YOU WHIRLPOOL, MAYTAG, OR WHOEVER YOU ARE.

The same week after installation, this dishwasher began leaking water. The problem has occurred intermittently since then and our kitchen floor is now ruined. We have had to schedule 5 separate repair appointments and the problem STILL is not resolved. At the first appointment, the repair man tried to insist the problem was occurring because of the type of dishwashing detergent we were using. We explained that we had tried both powder and pods with the same result. He reluctantly agreed to order a new gasket. At the second appointment, he installed the new gasket which did not correct the problem. At the third appointment, a different repair man indicated we needed a new latch. He ordered the latch, set an appointment with us for installation but never showed. We have called repeatedly and our calls are not returned. We now have a 5th appointment scheduled with another repair man. This has taken hours of lost time and we still have a leaky dishwasher that has now ruined our hard wood floors. I would NEVER, EVER recommend this dishwasher to anyone. We chose to purchase a Maytag because we have always had good reliable products in the past. We were also led to believe their service was reliable as well but that has not been our experience at all. After this experience we will choose another brand. I believe the rating on this product is due to a bunch of fake positive reviews. If you really read the poor reviews, you will find this is apparently a common issue with this issue, but it would appear as though Maytag does not care to correct the issue.

As I spent countless hours reading the 2000+ 5 star reviews about KitchenAid dishwashers, my main question was: If Maytag and Kitchenaid are made from the same parts in the same factory, are they the same in quality? So instead of buying a gold standard Kitchenaid, I had to try the Maytag. 1) It matched my Maytag refrigerator stainless nicely, boasts the same 47db sound level, and has a nice, almost food disposal blade that chops up left over food scrapes (Kitchenaid uses a filter but nobody got time to reach in their dishwasher). Purchasing / delivery was a breeze, thank you home depot. Installation with the optional purchase kits makes life easy, and one should not be afraid to install by themselves. Its not that hard people... First time using it; machine was louder than expected; is this the reason why I should have bought the kitchenaid instead?! BUT, some info for the reader: the more dishes you put in the machine, the quieter the machine gets. Second round where I filled the machine, very quiet! The machine washes dishes with ease. Will note: even with soft water, I find I am using rinse aid on the lowest setting. No foaming found as some will note: soft water + rinse aid = foam. Overall: save yourself a few bucks, buy the magtag over the Kitchenaid if you are looking for a more standard options dishwasher. If you want every bell and whistle; then go with the Kitchenaid.

I would NEVER leave food on the dishes, put them in the dish washer and leave them until I had a full load. Certainly would never put glass dishes with baked on food still stuck on them!! My dishes were pretty much clean when I put them in the dish washer, because I had rinsed and scrapped everything off of them! When if finally got a full load of dishes covered in dried on food, I used the Cascade Platinum Actionpacs that came with it and crossed my fingers!!!! I would never spend that much on dishwasher packs, because I didn't think they were worth the money, but I figured if ALL the food came off after having sat there a couple of days, they would be worth the money. So when the wash cycle was complete, I held my breath and opened the door!!! Praise the Lord, they were spotless!!!! LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this dishwasher!!!!!! I would highly recommended it! It is very quite and easy to use. It can be delayed up to 24 hours and the top racks design is awesome!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from I'd give this a zero if I could! After 8 service calls, this dishwasher continues to leak as it did from the first time we used it. Maytag, now owned by Whirlpool, refuses to replace the dishwasher. Thank goodness for our local Home Depot; they are going to take the dishwasher back and either give us a refund or replace it with another one, even a different brand. DO NOT BUY THIS DISHWASHER!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome dishwasher! Love the modern design - Super quiet Got this one installed and the guys did an excellent job with the installation. The dishwasher is very quiet. It cleans very well on the quick mode which lasts about an hour. The display has a count down that tells you how much longer it has. Depending on how high it's installed, you might not be able to see it. Mine wasn't installed very high, so I can see the display with the door closed. It has adjustable feet for high control, so this is what I mean by installing it too high. Everything fits, the racks are nicely designed. I can even fit tall glasses on the top rack. It also has a nice sound to tell you the dishes are done! You will not be disappointed with this one.

Functions as advertised and it is very quiet! I was even able to install it myself using their install directions. This is only the second dishwasher I've ever owned but better even than any I can remember growing up with as well. Love it!
