We have had the Maytag dishwasher about one month. There were no problems installing the washer in my kitchen. It is quiet and cleans as expected.

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

We had this dishwasher in our first house. When we moved the first thing we did is replace the dishwasher with the exact same one we had in the first house. It is so quit, we don't even realise it is running. Best one out there.

Stylish, Good Performer

By 

from Fremont, N.H.

Verified Buyer

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

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've had this Dishwasher for about a week now and the first thing I noticed is how quiet it is when it's running, cleans the dishes very well.

Looks Good - Works Better Than Good

By 

from Granite City, IL

Verified Buyer

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

Bought this model to replace my MDB7600 which I purchased in December of 2004. Never a problem with the old machine, until my top rack required replacement. Made sense to just replace given the price of a new top rack! I was a bit unhappy until I used the new machine. It is easy to use, and does a great job -everything comes out sparkling! All of my home appliances are Maytag - and they have all served me well. I would also add that I have bought all my appliances directly from the local Maytag store - where I always receive outstanding service from purchase to replacement. My Maytag team is the best! My new dishwasher has only been in my home for a week - but I expect this one to be as reliable as my last one!

Moved into our new house about 3 weeks ago.
Love the dishwasher but especially love the cutlery holder as you can pull it out and set it on the counter to empty it.

Leaking all over my floor after just six months

By 

from Minneapolis

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

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.
