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.

Back to hand washing dishes

prunefingers 3/21/2018

We purchased this dishwasher in the fall of 2012. Exactly 18 months after purchase the soap dispenser began malfunctioning. It would release all of the soap during the prewash cycle leaving none for the wash cycle. Now, the clean light blinks continuosly and the dishwasher does nothing else. Tried removing power, tried a reset function I found on the internet with no effect. The dishwasher is now simply taking up space. I am at the point where I have had it with paying hundreds and hundreds of dollars on major appliances just to have them quit after a few years. I have told my family we will be hand washing our dishes from now on because I refuse to shell out hundreds more to have it repaired or replaced. Give me a dishwasher with an "unlimited" 5 year warranty and I may consider purchasing one again, but not until then. Maytag has lost this customer forever.

Very quiet. Almost too quiet (see below)

Marc1130 9/7/2014

Almost too many options for washing, drying, etc... Confusing. However, rack is pratical for efficienl stacking, and water spraying during cycles is gentle enough not turn over any container, which then fill up with water and spill all over the place when I slide out the rack, contrairy to my old appliance. Wish also there were more visual/audio indicators on the progress of wash cycles

Love my dishwasher!

farmerswife38 11/26/2013

Have many comments from others about how quiet my dishwasher is. I really like the stainless steel inside. We have hard water and it doesn't seem to stain the inside like my old one did that was white on the inside.

Was great in the beginning......

Handwashing 11/12/2013

Purchased this dishwasher to replace one that wasn't cleaning well. First few months were great; however, same issue has materialized as the one we replaced. There have been NO changes to ours dishwashing soap, water, water pressure. Am now hand washing dishes as I have to re-wash what doesn't get clean in the dishwasher.

This dishwasher has a great sound feature!

Granny67 11/5/2013

In the 46 years I have been married, I have probably had one of each of the top brands. None of them compare with my newest Maytag dishwasher. I have always had to wait until we were through watching tv to do a load of dishes. But with my new Maytag, I can do them at my convenience, and without the noise! It is so quiet, I have to touch the appliance to tell if it is running! Love it!

Everything advertised and more!

TampaScott 10/30/2013

This Maytag replaced our Whirlpool Quietsystem IV dishwasher after the motor / pump died for the second time. I did a great deal of research on the various types and brands and could not be happier with our purchase. The system is VERY quiet, controls are easy to access and understand, and the dishes come better than any other dishwasher I have had. We have had this dishwasher for about six months now and it still looks and works as new. Happy with our choice and you will be too!!
