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.

Junk

Merydy 3/19/2015

We bought this dishwasher within the last year and a half and the front control panel has already stopped working, rendering the dishwasher completely useless. We had our previous dishwasher for over 10 years and four moves before it finally gave out. This one lasted less than two years and from what my research has found this is a very common problem with this dishwasher. I wish I had done research before we purchased it. It is now a $500 dish drying rack. Will never buy Maytag again.

Super quiet with nice extras

2/8/2015

We bought this three weeks ago went on a 20-year-old GE died. I liked that it had hey food grinder instead of a filter that needs to be cleaned. I was also very impressed with the 10 year warranty, although I hope that I never have to use it. Once started, you can hardly tell it is on. It has a very easy to use height adjuster for the top rack, as well as split silverware baskets which allow you to position them wherever it is most convenient. The dishes are coming out very clean and dry.

Not as good as my old maytag

ontheball 1/26/2015

I bought another maytag when my older one stopped working. It did not have a lot of extra features, even at the time when we purchased it new, but I was always impressed with one thing: it got the dishes clean. The new one doesn't. We are careful about loading it, but regularly one or more dishes comes out of the d/w and goes straight into the sink to soak. The older d/w also had a very large capacity, something I hadn't appreciated until the new one came home and was clearly smaller, probably due to more insulation. I also do not like the design of the control panel, it is "finnicky" to start the cycle and not easy to change the options. And a challenge to start the cycle without a light on if the room is dark ... It is noticeably quieter, as advertised.

regina777 12/1/2014

My last dishwasher was like a train coming through my kitchen! With the Maytag...I have to actually walk over several times to make sure it is running. Even when it is filled to the max...cleans all of our dishes, etc. great!

Still Does a Great Job

Lauracol 9/13/2014

We replaced our previous Maytag dishwasher with this newer model. Still does a great job, just takes a little longer than my old machine. It's much quieter than my old machine so it doesn't matter the duration really doesn't matter.

Quiet

JaniceG 7/22/2014

I am pleased with the performance and quiet operation. My previous dishwasher gave us 22 years of service, but it was very noisy. My only complaint is the space for bowls is not adequate. The total capacity is less. Otherwise, a sleek new addition to my kitchen.
