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.

Poor Dishwasher Review

9/28/2015

After less than two years my keypad just went on the dishwasher. It is $275 to fix it so after less than two years I am faced with fixing for 1/2 the cost of the dishwasher or buying a new one. I wouldn't buy this again for this reason.

Mslamama 12/2/2014

I didn't realize that purchasing my new Maytag dishwasher would make such a big difference in how shiney and clean my dishes are. We can also have a conversation in the same room as the dishwasher while it is cleaning. We love our new dishwasher from Maytag!

Christie83 11/18/2014

We bought this machine a couple of months ago as we had a Maytag washer in our previous home. This one leaves a film on all our dishes no matter what cycle, level of rinse or dish washing detergent we use. We are very disappointed and regret the decision to spend the money on this machine

Very Quiet

Ramona4343 9/21/2014

I went from a very basic dishwasher (about the cheapest one we could afford) to this dishwasher. Difference was like night and day. The old dishwasher never got the dishes clean and was so loud that you had to turn the volume up on the TV 2 rooms away. This dishwasher is so quiet I have to look to see if the lights are on to know if it is running. All the dishes get spotlessly clean without scraping.

Exceeded Expectations

Bclaus 9/13/2014

I followed the advice of my appliance repairman and avoided Home Depot and Lowes. I went to a small locally owned appliance store and saved hundreds. The washer itself is a dream! It makes no noise! We absolutely love it. I will continue to buy Maytag products.

It is very quiet. The racks have a lot of functionality. I'm a little disappointed that it doesn't clean the dishes better.

OK for upgrade over 10 year old basic dishwasher

7/31/2014

This dishwasher does a good job at getting dishes, silverware, glasses and pots and pans clean. It is SLOW....seems to run forever on the Smart cycle which should be the most effecient cycle. The adjustable top rack usually has to be kept at the lowest position if you have anything that is remotely tall in the top rack. Larger plates and deep larger dinnerware bowls to not stand well on the bottom rack and they fall against each other. Tub seems large...but really is not as big as our old basic dishwasher.

Quiet, efficient Value for $, quite rickety top rack

7/23/2014

Already had repair man come out and he even brought the older model new side attachments with the thought that mine had broken. Apparently they have been changed but they are still not solid. Top rack is very loose unless in the lowest position, which is way too low for even my dinner plates. Hope that the model top rack is changed again, think this would break very quickly in the normal child home. I am careful to place heavier items (mugs) in the back of top rack; so hope to obtain many years of use.. Thank you!

So quiet and flexible space is gr8!

Debbiepig 7/22/2014

I had a dishwasher for 15 years, so I didn't know what I was missing! This new one is quiet. It has adjustable racks which give you space on top if you have vases or tall glasses or on bottom if you have large things. You can remove one or all of the silverware baskets, and it is magnetic on the outside so I can finally put my Clean/Not Clean magnet on it!
