I acquired this model to replace a Maytag dishwasher, model MDB8969, that was less than a year old. Unfortunately I had experienced a number of issues with my former Maytag. I had warranty service personnel visit my home on numerous (6) occasions and they repeatedly made unsuccessful efforts to repair the unit. I then decided it was time to replace the unit. I removed the former unit and installed the new dishwasher myself, the process went smoothly. However upon starting the new unit, model MDB8979, I noted that the cycle indicator light was malfunctioning. The light remained green throughout the entire cycle, rather than glow blue for wash, red for dry, and green for complete. This required me to contact Maytag Customer Service, "Once Again" for service! A service appointment has been scheduled and hopefully it can be resolved with in a single visit. I also noted one other minor defect, the Maytag nameplate on the bottom of the dishwasher was crooked as it had not been applied correctly at the assembly plant. Customer Service ordered a replacement and had it mailed to me. The unit is quiet and does a good job both cleaning and drying. I like the units new handle, the fingerprint resistance finish is a plus and the upper rack, with the ball bearings, operates very smoothly. If it had not been for the indicator light and name plate issues I would have given the unit Five Stars.

I bought my dishwasher six months ago, and it worked wonderfully. Then 3 weeks ago, it started leaking all over my floor. Maytag's repair contractor took 4 days to come look at it the first time, then 7 days the second time. It's still not working, so I'm stuck walking all my baby's bottles by hand while I wait for Maytag to care enough to fix or replace it.

Great dishwasher!

By

Verified Buyer

Comments about Maytag 24" Wide Top Stainless Steel Built-In Dishwasher:

We upgraded our 13 year old dishwasher and the features on this dishwasher make us wonder why we didn't sooner. The cycle settings and drying features are top notch and easy to follow. The tray arrangement and silver ware holder give a lot of options. Definitely a great fit for our kitchen and family!

Comments about Maytag 24" Wide Top Stainless Steel Built-In Dishwasher:

I recently purchased this dishwasher and I am very pleased with its performance. I had a kitchen aide before and the dishes were always dirty even with me prewashing them. I am so happy to have clean dishes! Very quiet when operating. Very clean design! Love that the stainless does not show fingerprints. Cannot go wrong with this buy!

      Cleans well. Don't like the covered utensil caddy. The holes make it harder to fit forks, etc in. Boy it's quiet!

      Service and delivery were top notch. Felt like we also got a great deal.! Thanks
