I am a single parent that just purchased an older home, and while I love original hardwood floors and moldings, the small kitchen counter length and lack of dishwasher was just one of the things I thought I'd have to "deal with" until I could afford a kitchen redo. However..this portable is SO EASY to move, SO EASY to hook up, is not too loud and most importantly, IT CLEANS the dishes. I use the Cascade packets that have the liquid on one side and granules on the other along with JetDri and think that this helps. My dishes are always clean, I don't feel like I have to scrub them completely, the heat cycle dries them well, I feel they are sanitary and they don't have lots of spots...not sure what else to say. It won't ever be as quiet as a built-in or have the same features, but for the price it is an excellent portable and I don't feel like it's a portable because it has incredible capacity and I can fit larger pans in there. It is built well, sturdy, not rickety and the local Lowe's delivered it on time. Oh..and the cutting board on top really is great because I need extra space and it just works really really well.

After having my sturdy old Maytag portable dishwasher for 35 years with only some minor cosmetic and gasket damage and one service call which was handled in a brief 2 minute over the phone instruction on how to simply unclog the drain, I would have been remiss not to choose another Maytag as a replacement. However, this new Maytag has NO fiberglass insulation to dampen the sound and echoes, has a door that rocks left to right as it is wheeled into place (not sturdy and early gasket wear expected) and a very curious panel of push buttons which never indicate what you have selected or at what stage in the cycle the washer is doing its thing. The plastic upper spray arm requires a maximum 10" center clearance instead to the 14" high lower tray capacity. If my engineering vision of this "re-designed Maytag' bears out, I think that its replacement in a few more years may not be tagged a "Maytag". Sears own urgency in recommending a 2-year Protection Plan may compound my anticipatory fears. We may all be soon reminiscing "Remember the ads when a Maytag repairman had a job in name only, but never a service call?"

Comments about Maytag 24" Jetclean Plus MDC4809AWB Black Portable Tall Tub Dishwwasher:
This is my third portable dishwasher & it is incomparably superior to any other brand. Portables are hard to come by & have limited function. This one has the best spray arms, spacing, and cleaning power. I run 7-10 loads a week & everything goes in there. It only uses 7 gallons per load & I don't have to pre-rinse, so my septic system is very happy, too. I am sorry to see it has been discontinued & very grateful to have found the last one. I sure hope Maytag is going to put out a new version.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I did not purchase it myself,my oldest daughter did. I was excited when she told me it was a Maytag,because when I had my first washer it was an old wringer type.I t sounded like an old lawnmower,but cleaned clothes like a dream.

The top section doesn't hold much as the sections are a weird design.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Runs very quietly.

I really like it and it does a very good job of getting the dishes clean. It does take a lot longer to do a load of dishes but I have heard that is true with the newer models. I'm not sure why though.
