Most Powerful Motor on the Market 1 Maytag® dishwashers feature the most powerful motor on the market 1 , so you can be sure what you put in comes out clean.

4-Blade Stainless Steel Chopper 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.

Built for the Long Haul We wanted to build you the toughest dishwashers possible, so we packed them with sturdy stainless steel that'll stand up to years of the toughest cleaning and the worst wear. Made to handle high heat and less likely to crack than plastic, the stainless steel materials also resist stains and cracking to help keep your dishwasher looking good for years to come.

PowerBlast Cycle The PowerBlast cycle removes stuck-on food with high pressure spray jets, increased temperature and hot steam to finish the job.

10-Year Limited Warranty 2 on Racks, Stainless Steel Tub, and Chopper Maytag® dishwashers are covered by a 10-year limited parts warranty 2 on the racks, chopper blade and stainless steel tub, so when we say you can count on Maytag® dishwashers for years of cleaning performance, we mean it.

Premium Rack Adjusters Premium rack adjusters on the upper rack allow you to move the rack up or down, giving you the flexibility to fit your glassware, cookware and more.

Tiered Upper Rack When cleaning up after a big meal, you always need room to fit just one more glass or plate. The tiered upper rack is designed like stadium seating to hold large plates and taller items. In the lower rack, this creates enough space to place two 9" x 13" pans vertically.

Premium DuraGuard® Nylon Racks Premium DuraGuard® nylon racks have a heavy-duty coating that resists rust.

Professional delivery and installation is available for every product we sell. We would be happy to coordinate delivery and installation for you.

Extended warranties are usually very inexpensive and can save you thousands in the future. Some can even cover extra costs that result, such as cost of food that spoils when your fridge dies. It's simple and inexpensive to purchase extended warranties and one of the smartest ways to protect your investment.

Appliances can be large, heavy and expensive. You probably don't have the special tools or expertise needed to fix them in a crisis. If you can spare a few thousand dollars without batting an eyelash for new appliances should they break tomorrow, don't buy a warranty. But if you're like most of us, protect yourself by purchasing inexpensive extended warranties when you buy a new product and save yourself big money in the long run.

buppy 7/21/2015

Does a great job of washing the dishes. However, I do not like the side basket for silverware. Also, the bottom basket does not roll out evenly unless you pull from the middle.

hate the racks

gammydancer 7/20/2015

I bought this about 2 months ago. The racks are a nightmare to load. I had a Maytag dishwasher that was about 15 years old loved the racks in that one. I could get about 12 full place settings of dinnerware in to that one. Along with miscellaneous other dishes. Even though this dishwasher is physically bigger the racks are not at all condusive to large loads. The prongs are not bent like in the old one. So unless your bowls are flat there is little you can do to make them fit and I can't get the same number of dishes into this one as the last one. The cleaning performance is fair I still have to rinse the dishes well if I want every dish to come out clean. I tried loading with out rinsing but many dishes did not get clean because of the set up of the racks. Unfortunately it seems that the style of racks that I had is not available in any brand of dishwasher. I looked. I guess they are cheaper to make. I also get a residue in the section that would be just under the door when it is closed that I have to wipe out about once a week. On the pro side. It is very quiet you really have to listen very close to hear it. But it does take over 3 hrs to wash a load of dishes they tell me it's because of high efficiency low water usage that this is necessary. unfortunately I don't think there is another dishwasher out there that would have been any better. Maytag i'm very disappointed in this dishwasher. I am a loyal Maytag customer. I have been using your products for 40 years. This time you struck out. Although there are only 2 of us living in our home I regularly cook for and feed 6-8 people almost daily.

Not cleaning

5/29/2015

Had this about one month, it repeatly does not get the dishes clean, it constantly leaves food particals on the cups and glasses. The only way to prevent this is wash the load on the highest setting.

Adjustable top basket

rock88 4/24/2015

I bought this a month ago to replace my previous "Kitchen aid. The cycles are to long. I was very disappointed with that. If you use any cycle other than power blast dishes don't come out the best.

Exceptional Dishwasher !!

Jaynie59 4/17/2015

This dishwasher is so quiet I can't believe it. Also, it does a great job cleaning my dishes, and gives me lots of choices of cycles. Of course, being a Maytag, I expect to get many years of service from it.

Dry and sparkling clean dishes!

jodespard 4/11/2015

Last month my husband purchased this dishwasher. I didn't get to review it prior to his purchase but when he told me it was a Maytag I was pretty confident it would be of good Value. I love it! The dishwasher cleans thoroughly and has an excellent dry cycle. Of course it helps to use the rinse aid. I couldn't be happier with my husband's choice!

So far, so good

Clean Freak10 3/27/2015

I have owned this for one month. The cycles run long, but I find that using the quick wash without heated dry cleans very well in one hour. If you add the heated dry to the quick wash cycle, it takes another 30 minutes. This model has very nice features. I like the adjustable top rack and the slotted utensil holder. The reason I didn't give it 5 stars is because the bottom plate on the front of this dishwasher was not designed to look good and there is no way to cover it. If you can live with that, it appears to be an excellent product.
