Product Details

Maytag MDB8959AWS Jetclean Plus Stainless Steel Undercounter Dishwasher, Model MDB8959SS

The Jetclean® Plus wash system and Silverware Blast™ spray jets make this dishwasher, with fully integrated controls, able to handle any challenge.
Blast your way to clean dishes. This Jetclean® Plus dishwasher uses high-pressure spray jets to remove tough food particles and a stainless steel chopper blade to pulverize food, preventing particles from plugging the wash system. Silverware Blast™ spray jets focus 3 times the water pressure directly onto silverware, helping ensure it comes out clean the first time. The SteamClean option uses high-pressure spray jets and high-heat steam to help get to those hard-to-reach places. The InstaWash™ cycle washes and rinses dishes in 30 minutes when time is short and soil is light. It also features fully integrated controls, a 2X Life tested motor and a 10-year limited parts warranty on the racks, stainless steel tub and chopper blade.

Key Features:

Silverware Blast Spray Jets
Eliminate prerinsing—Exclusive spray jets focus 3 times the water pressure to clean your dirtiest silverware

SteamClean Option
Get glassware clean with the power of steam—Uses high-heat steam and a high-temperature rinse to reduce spots on glassware

Twice the Life Motor
This durable motor delivers years of dependable cleaning and has been tested to last twice as long as the average dishwasher life expectancy

Features:

  • Stainless Steel Interior: Available in select dishwashers. In addition to providing a high-end appearance, it helps retain heat for quicker drying in dishwashers.
  • JetClean Plus Wash System: Uses high-pressure spray jets to remove tough food particles. A stainless steel food chopper 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.
  • Fully Integrated Controls: Keep your kitchen looking streamlined—The durable control panel is tucked away, providing a strong, sleek exterior that lowers the possibility of unintended use
  • Auto Clean Plus Cycle: Eliminate guesswork. Sensors determine the soil level of the load as well as usage factors, such as door openings, time between cycles, soil level history and foam detection. Then the sensors automatically adjust water temperature, wash time and the number of fills for optimal cleaning
  • Split & Fit Silverware Basket: Fits your needs. The silverware basket can be divided into two halves to fit almost any loading situation
  • QuietSeries™ 400 Sound Package: Clean without disrupting your home. Extra-thick, specially designed sound absorbers on the top, back, sides and door of the dishwasher create a Seal of Silence™. Additional dampers, seals and dampening pads provide extra absorption of sound
  • Adjustable Upper Rack: Customize each load—Racks can be adjusted up or down to accommodate the size of dishes in each load
  • Fold-Away Tines: Makes room for large dishes—Securely holds plates and bowls in place or folds flat to make room for large items
  • Normal Wash Cycle: Wash moderately soiled items—Provides just the right level of cleaning for your lightly-soiled or moderately-soiled dishes
  • 2-4-6 Hour Delay Start Option: Wash when you want—Automatically starts the dishwasher up to 6 hours later to accommodate your schedule
  • High Temperature Wash Option: Adds an extra rinse and elevates the temperature to 145°F by the end of the rinse cycle to help reduce water spots and remove any remaining particles
  • Easy Latch: Prevent water leakage—This durable door latch will help prevent the door from popping open while a washing cycle is in progress
  • Ball Tip Rack Tines with Cradle Cushion Grip: Protect your dishes—Rounded tips are gentle on dishes and hold them in place so dishes are less likely to be scratched
  • Automatic Temperature Control: Eliminate guesswork—Provides the ideal temperature for each wash cycle offered, so you don't have to adjust water temperature according to the soil level of the load.
  • Rinse-Aid Dispenser: Worry less about dispensing rinse aid—Allows you to add rinse aid to the dishwasher, so it will automatically dispense it into the wash, providing improved drying action
  • Stack-Rack Shelves: Increase loading flexibility—Items like casserole dishes stay stable while the folding shelf allows you to load smaller items on top
  • Strong Grip Tiered Upper Rack: Improved strength—An updated design provides easy access and a modern look, plus the durability that Maytag brand is known for
  • Premium Dark Duraguard® Nylon Racks: Help protect dishes—These heavy-duty racks protect dishes from scratches and damage while also resisting rust.
  • NSF Certified Sanitize Option: Clean dishes with confidence—Ensures the wash cycle meets the criteria set forth by NSF International for eliminating 99.999% of food soil bacteria
  • ENERGY STAR® Qualified: Save money on utility bills—ENERGY STAR® qualified dishwashers use less water and energy
  • Oversize Capacity Plus Tall Tub: Wash more in each load—Clean items like cookie sheets, pitchers and mixing bowls in this oversized tub
  • InstaWash™ Cycle: Washes and rinses dishes in 30 minutes when your time is short and soil is light. Does not include drying
  • 14 Place Setting Capacity: Fit it all—Offers enough room to wash your plates, bowls, cups and silverware, even after a dinner party or large family gathering.
  • Heavy Wash Cycle: Wash heavily soiled items—The ideal cycle for pots and pans and heavily soiled dishes, like casseroles and baking sheets.
  • Light Wash Cycle: Wash lightly soiled items—Provides optimum cleaning for dishes that are typically lightly soiled, like cups and bowls
  • Heated Dry Option: Choose your heat setting—Allows you to select a drying cycle that includes heat so that dishes are dry when you put them away
  • Control Lockout: Prevent unwanted operation—This option will lock the dishwasher controls so that a cycle cannot be selected and the machine cannot be started by accidentally pressing the buttons.
  • Precision Clean™ Turbidity Sensor: Clean more effectively—The sensor monitor food soil, detergent, rinse aid and temperature, to deliver optimum washing and rinsing action for superb cleaning results
  • Microprocessor Controls with Touch Pads: Simplify cycle selection—These touch pad controls offer seamless cycle selection with just a light press of the button.
  • Removable Upper Rack: Customize each load—The upper rack can be completely removed to fit oversized items in the lower rack
  • High-Side Lower Rack: Easily handles large dishes—Holds two 9 in. x 13 in. pans in an upright position for greater loading flexibility

I bought this dishwasher to replace a Maytag I purchased 5 years ago. This one is SUPER QUIET. The only time I knew it was running was when it fills and drains. Even then it is quieter then previous D/W we had. Everything was clean and shiny. The steam clean feature really does work! If you have problems with your silverware having stuck on food after washing then get this one. It has a silverware blaster that only focuses on your silverware. Our old Maytag D/W was made when they were getting cheap on quality. Maytag has finally come back around and the quality is very good and sturdy.I am very picky when it comes to dishwashers and this one is the best for the price. I always get one that has a food grinder. There are really expensive ones out there and they do not even have a food grinder. I could never figure that out.

I would have most likely given this dishwasher an overall 4 or 5 rating. The unit looks very nice; washes dishes just like you would expect it to. No issue there. The issue is with a part that Maytag fails to supply with the unit.

In order to connect the water supply line to the DW you need to go out and buy a 90 degree elbow, 3/8" compression to 3/4" hose thread. Why on earth would Maytag not supply this fitting when they supply everything else for the installation. I guess if I ever wanted to hook up my dishwasher to a garden hose in my back yard I would be in business. However, if you plan on actually installing the dishwasher in your kitchen and need to connect it to your typical 3/8" water supply line then you'd better make a stop at the hardware store and pick the fitting up for a whopping $3. $3 that I guess Maytag was unwilling to part with.

I won't even get into why Maytag would design their water connection with a 3/4" garden hose thread in the first place. But since they did, they could have at least had the brains to supply the fitting for it. Increase the cost of the DW by $3. It wouldn't have waivered my decision to buy, I promise. Overall I would recommend the product itself and would most likely purchase it again.

    I really like this dishwasher we have had it 4 months now and it really does clean your dishes & utensiles w/o having to clean them prior to putting them in to be cleaned. I love the stainless interior and the sanitize mode you can use when someone is ill at your house. We had a Maytag in our old house that also cleaned well and lasted many years. highly recommend

      This dishwasher looks nice, it's quiet and it cleaned well until it broke, with just over one year of use. So I gave it 2 stars instead of one. Unfortunately it broke soon after the warranty expired. It was purchased and installed in February 2011. The heater broke in Feb 2012 (it was more than 52 weeks so out of warranty). Abt was great they covered a service call and a control board replacement). The heater is expensive. The replacement cost for the part is over $300.

          Comments about Maytag Jetclean Plus Stainless Steel Undercounter Dishwasher:

          This dishwasher was a replacement for a 10yo GE Triton. We were interested in the quick wash, utensil blaster and steam clean features because two of us don't fill the entire washer every day and dishes can sit several days. The clean SS full door looks much better than the white we had before. Two months going and it's run about a dozen times on various cycles - silverware is clean with a couple exceptions (dried on food, could have been really dried on), energy efficient wash cycles are long so we use the delay feature to have dishes clean early in the morning. Our one issue is the noise - it is louder than our previous washer, you really know it's running, which is not what we thought we were getting given the specs and some reviews. We have a GE Monogram at another apartment that is silent - so silent that it runs accidentally when the panel gets bumped and we don't know until we're putting more dishes in.

          This was a good value for the price. The dishes always come out clean. However, after owning a higher-end model prior to this, I find this dishwasher less versatile to load and the racks more flimsy in design. Also, the instruction manual could be more informative.

                Very disappointed with his purchase. Our Kitchenaid went bad and I had a recent surgery so I could not go to ABT to physically look at a new one. I trusted ABT so I went by the pics, information and good reviews on the website to make my choice. Thankfully I kept the utensil tray from the old Kitchenaid and it fits perfect. I pulled all the other inferior, small and flimsy "trays" and put them away for if I ever have to use them. The 2nd issue is the controls. According to the installation directions the unit is to be tucked underneath the cabinet like all the others I have ever owned/used and installed. The issue is that you cannot see where it is in the cycle and you have to set your cycle with the door open, hit start then close the door. It cleans extremely well! I will say that. The unit's dimensions are the same as all the others, 24" wide but even my kids say it is a smaller unit. It does not hold as many dishes. I believe that as well. One more nice option is the upper tray moves up and down. The pics on the site do not appear to be similar in real life viewing. Overall, it is my fault for buying a unit without seeing it in person 1st. I would not have purchased it if I did. Also there are complaints from others about missing fittings for the water supply. I bought the new hose from [@] and it was included in the package. So it was no big deal to us. I spent a great deal of money with ABT, and this machine, through the years so I trusted them. I guess I need to rethink my options next time. I still will compare ABT but they won't have my complete trust again.
