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.

Lights blinking

Lou7302 2/14/2015

I bought this 2 yrs ago and have had problems with it cleaning the dishes, we have to basically clean everything off all dishes and silverware. This morning (Sat), the lights started blinking. We did everything in the manual to correct the problem. The final solution was to call the serviceman. I tried to call the serviceman 3 times, no answer, the phone just rang. model#MDB8949SAW. I also own a Maytag Refrigerator, Stove, and Microwave. I have had the repairman out on the Refrigerator and stove. These were purchased on 1/29/13.

18 Months Owned

Golding 8/13/2014

Pros: I like the features, top rack moves up to accommodate larger dishes below.Cons: The lower rack does not track well when pulling it to access dishes. Just after 12 month warranty was up it started leaking around door washer. 18 months Control Panel had to be replaced.

This is our second Maytag dishwasher and we have always had good luck with them. Our most recent one is a little different but seems to be just as good if not better than the first one we had.

This dishwasher is very solid.

Valorie05 3/28/2014

This dishwasher is made very solid and is extremely quiet. The adjustable top rack is helpful whether you need more room in the bottom or in the top sections. The dishes come out spotless, every time. I am very happy with my purchase of this dishwasher.

We love this dishwasher

Pkunz 3/15/2014

We put this dishwasher to the test. We loaded dishes with dishes that were dried food and didn't rinse anything. We even had dried egg. All the dishes came out beautifully. It runs very quiet. A friend came over and was surprised at how quiet it was. I like that I can put large items on the top rack and lower the rack to accommodate them. We would buy this dishwasher again. We love Maytag dishwasher. This is our 4th one.

Too hard to load. Dark inside. Racks are spaced too far apar

packratgranny 11/13/2013

I find I don't like the stainless because it's too dark. I miss the white and the white racks. Just white racks would help but the dark grey is too dark. There is too much space wasted for us old ladies with our old Correllware. It won't stand up in the wide rack spacing. Makes me crazy. I love the way I can move the height of the racks and the cleaning power is wonderful. It cleans like crazy. I've never had to re-wash anything.

Minnie222 11/7/2013

Product is very satisfactory. Does a great job on tough stains and stuck-on food. Love the quietness. Don't even realize it is operating. I might change the design of the racks for my use, but I do not find them much of a problem. I do need more room for small bowls

Runs QUIET!!!

daj33 11/7/2013

We bought this dishwasher site unseen from Duerden's in Bountiful. I trust their judgement, and had just come home from the hospital with a new baby when our old dishwasher died. So we didn't have a lot of time or energy to look around.I have to say I am very pleased with its performance, it's cleaning options, and how quiet it is.

Jeanene 11/5/2013

runs very quiet

ruffus 11/4/2013

This dishwasher runs extremely quiet. You don't even know that it's running. Our other one sounded like a freight train going through our kitchen. There's plenty of room in it and I love the way our dishes turn out. There's alot of features on it and they are easy to use.

Quiet machine but poor design

CeCe2010 10/31/2013

I replaced an old maytag with this newer model. The pros: very quiet and as long as rinse aid is used dishes come out very clean and dry. The height of the top shelf is adjustable, a nice feature to accommodate larger items on the bottom.Cons: will not dry without the use of rinse aid which is different from my previous model. The layout does not allow for large pots so now I have to do my pots by hand. There are no foldable prongs on either the top or bottom shelf. The area for cups on the top shelf is narrow and only smaller cups will fit. The prongs on the lower shelf are uneven which causes larger plates to fall over. Overall I prefer my older model. I wouldn't buy this machine again.

Katie57 10/30/2013

I love the adjustable shelves. The stainless steel interior looks nice and continues to look brand new. The touch controls make it easy to run. There is alot of choices when it comes to the different cycles that I can choose. I chose white exterior and it is so easy to keep clean. I have always had Maytag and would have nothing else. It truely is the best on the market. I shopped and this is a great product for the price.

This is a great dishwasher.

10/29/2013

I've had Maytag dishwashers previously and cannot say enough about the Quality of the product. The only issue that I have with the dishwasher is that it smells once you put dishes in it (!) What that means is that my family is no longer large enough to require the dishwasher to run every day. After dishes sit in the washer for several hours, opening the door lets out an awful sour smell.
