SteamClean Option Get glassware clean with the power of steam Uses high-heat steam and a high-temperature rinse to reduce spots on glassware.

ENERGY STAR® qualified ENERGY STAR® qualified dishwashers use less water and energy than standard models helping to save money on utility bills.

2X Life tested motor The motor has been tested to twice the average dishwasher life expectancy* to deliver years of dependable cleaning.

Stainless Steel Interior The 100% stainless steel tub not only looks great and resists corrosion, it also delivers premium drying performance by providing higher heat retention.

Tiered Upper Rack With an improved design, this upper rack holds tall items like 9" plates and glasses while providing easy access. It also creates enough room in the lower rack to vertically place two 9" x 13" pans.

JetClean® Plus Wash System Uses high-pressure spray jets to remove tough food particles. A stainless steel chopper blade pulverizes food, preventing particles from plugging the wash system and spray jets. The filtration system captures tiny food particles to prevent redistribution during the cycle for optimal cleaning without the need to prerinse.

Premium Dark Duraguard® Nylon Racks These heavy-duty racks protect dishes from scratches and damage while also resisting rust.

NSF Certified Sanitize Option Clean dishes with confidence Ensures the wash cycle meets the criteria set forth by NSF International for eliminating 99.999% of food soil bacteria.

Auto Clean Plus Cycle Eliminate guesswork. Sensors determine the soil level of the load as well as usage factors, such as door openings, time between cycles, soil level history and foam detection. Then the sensors automatically adjust water temperature, wash time and the number of fills for optimal cleaning.

Split & Fit Silverware Basket Fits your needs. The silverware basket can be divided into two halves to fit almost any loading situation.

Oversize Capacity Plus Tall Tub The oversized tub provides enough capacity to clean tall and large items like cookie sheets, pitchers and mixing bowls.

QuietSeries 400 Sound Package Clean without disrupting your home. Extra-thick, specially designed sound absorbers on the top, back, sides and door of the dishwasher create a Seal of Silence. Additional dampers, seals and dampening pads provide extra absorption of sound.

14 Place Setting Capacity Fit it all Offers enough room to wash your plates, bowls, cups and silverware, even after a dinner party or large family gathering.

Heavy Wash Cycle Wash heavily soiled items The ideal cycle for pots and pans and heavily soiled dishes, like casseroles and baking sheets.

Normal Wash Cycle Wash moderately soiled items Provides just the right level of cleaning for your lightly-soiled or moderately-soiled dishes.

Light Wash Cycle Wash lightly soiled items Provides optimum cleaning for dishes that are typically lightly soiled, like cups and bowls.

2-4-6 Hour Delay Start Option Wash when you want Automatically starts the dishwasher up to 6 hours later to accommodate your schedule.

Heated Dry Option Choose your heat setting Allows you to select a drying cycle that includes heat so that dishes are dry when you put them away.

High Temperature Wash Option Adds an extra rinse and elevates the temperature to 145°F by the end of the rinse cycle to help reduce water spots and remove any remaining particles.

Control Lockout Prevent unwanted operation This option will lock the dishwasher controls so that a cycle cannot be selected and the machine cannot be started by accidentally pressing the buttons.

Easy Latch Prevent water leakage This durable door latch will help prevent the door from popping open while a washing cycle is in progress.

Precision Clean Turbidity Sensor Clean more effectively The sensor monitor food soil, detergent, rinse aid and temperature, to deliver optimum washing and rinsing action for superb cleaning results.

Ball Tip Rack Tines with Cradle Cushion Grip Protect your dishes Rounded tips are gentle on dishes and hold them in place so dishes are less likely to be scratched.

Microprocessor Controls with Touch Pads Simplify cycle selection These touch pad controls offer seamless cycle selection with just a light press of the button.

Automatic Temperature Control Eliminate guesswork Provides the ideal temperature for each wash cycle offered, so you don't have to adjust water temperature according to the soil level of the load.

Removable Upper Rack Customize each load The upper rack can be completely removed to fit oversized items in the lower rack.

Rinse-Aid Dispenser Worry less about dispensing rinse aid Allows you to add rinse aid to the dishwasher, so it will automatically dispense it into the wash, providing improved drying action.

Stack-Rack Shelves Increase loading flexibility Items like casserole dishes stay stable while the folding shelf allows you to load smaller items on top.

10-year limited warranty on racks, stainless steel tub, and chopper The nylon racks, stainless steel tub and chopper blade are all backed by a 10-year limited parts warranty* to ensure long-lasting performance.

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.

VERY hard to open

BeReal 3/9/2018

This unit does NOT have a latch release and it takes a very strong hand to open. My wife needs to use both hands. Why did they not include a latch release????

Frustrating!

5/31/2016

Less than three years old--quit working. Same issue as many other I've found online. I can't seem to remove the right parts or find a video of this exact model to take it apart and clean the strip. I guess I'll be hand washing my dishes this summer. Boo Maytag.

Find a different unit (AND brand as well)!

12/1/2015

Here's yet another testimony to add to the countless others on multiple websites that Maytag MDB7749 is a defective model. I purchased this dishwasher in June 2014. Just after the one-year warranty expired in August 2015, the control panel began to act up. I'd press the "Normal" cycle button and three others would light up. Then in November it stopped working completely.I called Maytag and the first rep (rather rudely) told me that I would have to pay $99 for a diagnostic service call, and if the diagnosis was a faulty control panel, there was a possibility that it would be replaced at no charge. After getting off the phone and giving this some thought, I was convinced that the idea of paying someone $99 to tell me what I already know didn't make any sense at all. I called back and calmly explained that I'd seen review after review online describing the exact same problem and that it wasn't reasonable to pay someone to diagnose a known problem.Long story short, I persisted and was able to speak to a manager, and they finally agreed to send a local repairman and pay for the diagnostic.The repairman came this past week. After removing the control panel (VERY easily I might add if you're thinking about replacing it yourself- only a few screws and a quick wire harness disconnect) we looked at the ribbon on the control panel and the same rust that so many other reviewers have noted was present. Before he installed the new one, I asked to take a look at it. Good news is that the ribbon on the new panel appears to have been upgraded with a glossier finish than the old one. I'm hoping that means it will be more moisture-resistant.In his notes he had been instructed by Maytag not to charge me for the diagnosis or the part but to charge me for the labor. Although I felt it was wrong to pay anything for this repair, I was tired of haggling over it and agreed to pay the $130 labor charge.To sum up, don't buy this unit. In fact, it would be wise to consider brands other than Maytag/Whirlpool as reviews on many other recent models highlight similar defects as well.

I bought this unit about 3 years ago. Have already had to replace the control board two times. I bought a Maytag because of their advertised reliability...not too pleased!!!

So Quiet

sabres99 11/5/2013

What a difference from our old dishwasher. You can actually watch tv and have this running in the background. It is very quiet. We have tested its performance with some really dirty baked on dishes and it performed flawlessly. All the dishes came out like new and there was no left over food in the bottom of the machine. Amazing

I love my new dishwasher. It is very quiet, stylish and made

Victoria51 11/4/2013

This is a great dishwasher. My dishes come out very clean every time! It has lots of room for big, tall pans. The price was very good for a stainless steel interior. Features that I have had on dishwashers in other houses that I would like to have are a visible timer to monitor washing cycle progress and fold down tines on the racks. This dishwasher is heavy duty and made with Quality products. The independent professional installer also commented on the Quality construction.

In 40 years of marriage, this is the best dishwasher I've ow

Maryann53 10/31/2013

Quiet doesn't begin to describe the nearly silent operation of this dishwasher for most loads. However, if you have a load of dried-on, food-coated dishes, pots and pans, this is a workhorse. With the steam clean cycle, caked-on grime disappears. The dishwasher can operate on a load of dishes from as little as 15 minutes (rinse only) to a msrathon cycle of one and three-quarter hourss. Ihave been using this unit for a year now, and it needed only one small repair to the door lovk switch. I had it repaired by a Maytag authorized repairman, and I was back in operation in minutes. I love, love, love thiz dishwasher!

This product was great for the first 6 months

Mark01 10/13/2013

bought the product from Home Depot, sold on the sale person raves about how this was a great design, features. installation was easy. some of the stuff the sale person told me was not true. After 6 month had to replace the front mother board. Then it stopped cleaning the food off the dishes. Contact Home depot and told them I was not happy with the product They would replace it with a much higher cost unit. I had the original unit for a year and had to replace the mother board again call Home Depot again and talked to the same person and said she would replace it with a higher cost unit. At this point I??m tired of the whole thing. Learned a valuable lesson.
