Jetclean® Plus Steam Cycle Cleans everything from your messiest pans to your finest stemware. High pressure spray jets and increased temperatures power off tough, stuck-on food while finishing steam helps clean and reduce spots on glassware.

4-Blade Stainless Steel Chopper No more scraping plates. The 4-blade stainless steel chopper disintegrates the food particles that come off your dishes so they don't end up recirculating and sticking to your dishes and glassware.

Industry's Most Powerful Motor 1 Available Strengthened by the industry's most powerful motor 1 available, each cycle blasts away tough soils for clean dishes the first time.

Our Quietest Dishwashers Ever at 50 dBA 4 Peace of mind meets peace and quiet with dependable dishwashers that are Maytag brand's quietest ever at 50 dBA.

Premium Rack Glides A sturdier design uses ball bearings to glide in and out effortlessly, even when fully loaded.

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, drawing moisture away from dishes to help prevent spots on glassware and water drops on plastic containers.

10-Year Limited Warranty on Racks, Stainless Steel Tub, and Chopper Maytag® dishwashers are covered by a 10-year limited parts warranty 3 on the racks, chopper blade and stainless steel tub, so when we say you can count on Maytag® dishwashers for years of cleaning performance, we mean it.

Designed, Engineered and Assembled in the USA From Ohio to you, every Maytag® dishwasher is designed, engineered and assembled in the U.S.A.

Steam Sanitize Option The Steam Sanitize option lets you confidently wash important items with a high-temperature rinse that reduces 99.999% of food soil bacteria.

Auto Clean Cycle Gauges the soil level of the load, then automatically adjusts temperature, wash time and the number of fills accordingly. This helps achieve optimal cleaning without overusing resources.

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.

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

Split & Fit Silverware Basket The silverware basket can be divided into two halves and placed in various locations in the lower rack to accommodate almost any loading situation.

ToughScrub Plus Option Maintains or raises the temperature to 156°F, increases wash time and incorporates steam as an added attack against difficult food soils.

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

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.

Problems with control panel

Wally 12/22/2016

The control panel has had intermittent problems since it was under warrantee. We had a call in for service (under warrantee), but the service trip did not happen. The control panel buttons do not work sometimes and we never know what mode of operation it is in. Online discussion shows that this model has a lot of problems with this issue. Now we are ordering a new control panel out of our pocket to try to fix it. I will be doing the work myself.

Best dishwasher

DEBBIE 11/25/2016

I bought this dishwasher 2 months ago and absolutely love it. Cleans and dries the dishes beautifully so quiet that I have to check and see if it is running. The racks hold everything in place and glide in and out so effortlessly. Best appliance choice you could make.

Very attractive

MotherTess 4/8/2015

I've had this dishwasher for about 6 months now and I'm happy with it.Here is what I really like about it:-the hidden controls (especially nice with kids who like to push buttons),-the exterior is very attractive and easy to clean and I like the handle with rounded edges so they don't catch on your clothing-before purchasing, I tested out the interior and found that it holds my bowls and plates more easily than other models (they don't design bowls to fit into dishwashers! and even my plates were too big for some models)-stainless steel interior stays clean-it has a timer so dishwashing can happen at night-it is very quiet so even in the daytime it's not a big deal to do a load of dishes- we got the "self cleaning filter" in hopes that it will last longer and need less servicing - can't really "rate" that after such a short timewhy I didn't give it a perfect rating:-I was disappointed not to have the stainless steel silverware holder (that's the problem with not ordering the exact same model that you see in the store)-Every once in a while everything doesn't get totally clean (usually silverware, perhaps due to overcrowding)-the edges of the door interior are starting to collect gunkI wasn't looking for the most expensive model with lots of extra features, just something kid-friendly that cleans my dishes - I always use the "normal wash" setting.

Tia Susie 3/6/2015

I bought my new Maytag from Sears about a month ago. I am so happy with it. It holds much more than my old one and it runs so quietly that I hardly know when it is running. It is doing a wonderful job on all of my dishes.

LynWalk 2/17/2015

When it's running, it is so very quiet, like the sound of the refrigerator.It is deeper for the tall glasses. Cleans well. Nice feature to hold wine glasses. Was hoping for more space, but I guess that's not possible anyway.

Great after initial repairs

Charky 12/23/2014

Purchased 06/1/14. #MDB8959SBB /Costco. It works excellent NOW, after being repaired twice in July 2014. They replaced the soap dispenser (it had a broken bracket), but it did not solve the early release of soap. On second visit, they replaced the electronic board and that seems to have resolved the issue. It cleans baked on food and the flatware always comes out clean. The adjustable upper rack is great and it also has adjustable tines on lower rack. It works much better than my old Maytag. It runs longer than my old one, but the dishes come out clean without the need for a pre-rinse.

Love it, but worry

Babz 11/10/2014

Very quiet. I love the features but the holders on the inside are a bit cheesey. The brackets that can hold wine glasses stretch out of place after one use....becoming useless. The interior plastic pointy up things that separate plates and glasses bend easy. I love the dishwasher, the cycles, the features and the concepts of the holders and adjustments. I wish they had put a bit more thought into the actual materials used. I don't expect this product to last more that 4 or 5 years. I gave this 4 stars because for the few years it holds up it will make my dishes sparkle! I highly recommend this product if you can get it on sale for really cheap.....because you will have to replace it ...soon.

joe joe 11/6/2014

me and my husband bought this item more than a month ago and we were skeptical about it at first but after we got it home and used it the first time we love it it steams it cleans better than anyone I have ever used before and I love it it may take a long time to wash but it is very very clean when they are done I will never go back to a different company again as well as it is very quiet you could have a baby sleeping in the same room and the baby would sleep right through it

jcrnorf 10/29/2014

We bought this model because it was quiet and had a grinder feature. Wow what a difference! Our GE dishwasher was noisy and did not get the dishes clean unless you prewashed them. This Maytag really gets the job done!

Judith P Davis 10/20/2014

This is the best dishwasher I've ever owned. We have to check it because it is so quiet we are not sure if it is on. Thanks for a great product. I am moving and need another Maytag. Perhaps I will win one for my new condo on the ocean.

Diane D 9/29/2014

Given the features and the price, I don't believe any other dishwasher can top this one. The top rack moves like it's on ice skates. The food chopper allows for little to no pre rinsing. And it's a great look!

Good Cleaning, Poor Drying

Kenw 8/22/2014

We replaced a GE with this Maytag. The Maytag is definitely quieter. It does a good job cleaning dishes. We only use the short cycle - never needed the longer cycles. The dishwasher leaked 2 times and Maytag replaced the gasket. The dishes are always a little wet even after the heated dry cycle. The dishwasher must vent the moisture out the top of the door, because the top of the drawer is always very wet from condensation. The drying cycle and moisture on top of the dishwasher are our two main complaints and wouldn't expect it for this level of a Maytag dishwasher.

Leslie W 8/12/2014

My new Maytag replaced a 20 year old Maytag and I couldn't be happier. I actually find myself going to the kitchen just to make sure it is running. I am still exploring the many features. So far I have only ran full loads, so I haven't used the rinse and hold feature. I am amazed at how clean my dishes are. I am not one to "wash my dishes before they go into the dishwasher", thus my choice for this unit. It has the garbage disposer and not the manual clean filter. Again I am only a month into the new unit, but WOW!!!

Absolutely best dishwasher ever!

Jen3d 8/4/2014

Have been using for 2 months now, and have not had to "rewash" anything. We do not rinse before putting into dishwasher, and they still come out sparkling clean. Love the ball bearings on upper rack for effortless gliding. So very quiet, can not tell if it is running from two feet away. Still trying to retrain family on "new loading patterns" they do not realize that it can hold so much more than old portable dishwasher. Also love sanitize option, used when one member of family had strep throat. Great see through window for rinse agent, no more guessing. Maytag please keep up the great work, and continue to produce right here in the USA! This is my 2nd Maytag product, and spending the addtional small amount upfront will save much more in the long run.

Edard 7/23/2014

Replaced my Frigidaire with this brand and am loving it. Really quiet, can barely here it and only during rinse, spray modes. Love the out of sight control panel (on the top edge of the door). Beautiful inside and out great fit and finish with this product. Only had a few months so not sure of its reliability but have always had good luck with Maytag before.
