We like the style of the machine (control knobs, ease of use, and the end product, clean dishes) The machine is quiet and thorough in producing a clean end product, and it would be easy to recommend this dishwasher. We are completely satisfied with our purchase and hope for many years of service.

Although this cleans ok, I had an older model from about 13 years ago (same brand and style) that recently died; I am extremely disappointed in the way they cheaped out on this one. The top is not nice butcher block like my original, which I could overlook; however when I started loading dishes I noticed the real difference. ALL of the prongs in the upper and lower racks are straight up and down (ALL of them). If you use a dishwasher at all you know some should be bent (or however you say it) to accomodate bowls so that they can be nested without clanking or touching. Also the top rows are too close together. Most of my glassware seems to be too wide to fit nicely and I have to juggle them around a lot until they fit without pushing them in too tight. This means I cannot put as many dishes in for a load as I used too either. This goes for the bottom rack too. Although my old one had the sprayer going up the middle it seems I was still able to get more dishes and pans in to wash at the same time. My only saving grace is that I have two kids that have moved out so now I run smaller loads, but I have to run it more often.

No more dishes by hand!!! :-D

Comments about Maytag White Jetclean Plus Portable Dishwasher:
This dishwasher is great!!!! I made some stuffed chicken thing for dinner recently and a bunch of the cheese and sauce leaked out of the chicken and got burned onto the NONSTICK pan.. So, it was reeeally burned on. I assumed the dishwasher certainly wouldn't be able to get it off so I tried a scrub it by hand and had little if any luck. I thought "oh well, pan is a goner".. So I threw it in the dishwasher on the normal+high temp rinse+ heated dry.. Basically a "normal cycle" in my eyes. I put it on normal because I assumed that the pan certainly wouldn't get clean on any cycle, so why select the heavy duty cycle. Anyway... Sooo run in through on a normal cycle with good ol' powder cascade and the recommended finish jet dry... SPOTLESS! The pan came out as if it was new! So that's my lengthy review about my pan and how this dishwasher got it clean. You will be please. Just load it properly making sure both wash arms are free, and nothing's blockin the soap dispenser door thing and your dishes will come out literally spotless :)That's my story! Hope you enjoyed it!
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Powerhouse Cleaner in a small package
By The Chicagoan
from Chicago, IL
I had the previous model of this dishwasher and it lasted 8 years until the shelves started to decay and it was not cost effective to replace the shelves - even though the machine still functioned in every other way.Some of the improvements in this model are the large silverware basket that has been moved from the center to the side.The control panel has been simplified.The washer seems to be more powerful - my pots come out cleaner than they used to in the previous model.
ABT Nicely Done!
By T. Teebs

Maytag is owned by Whirlpool you can't go wrong.My Whirlpool portable lasted for 16 years and still works! The racks are worn down to metal and was making the dishes rusty&chipped. I went with Maytag because of the free shipping & no sales tax (Sorry Governor Mario).The door feels a little flimsy, I just need to get use to it but it has not been a real problem. The poor Maytag guy just stands outside with nothing to do, No regrets! Only time will tell!
This is the first time I used ABT, They did a great job and they did all that was promised. The delivery was on time, and very professional. The delivery guys even took out the old dishwasher for me! ABT, Good Price, Great service and a good quality product, what more can you ask for! .....Maybe the delivery guys could load the dirty dishes for the first use? ...NOT!
Nice machine. Quiet and efficient. Would suggest this model to others.
Fast, professional and courteous.
from Rochester, NY
I moved in to a new house with a small kitchen, and no where to put a built in dishwasher. This works perfectly for my needs. The light setting was great for the move in, cleaning all the dishes that had been packed to be moved. I also had no problem tackling Thanksgiving dinner for 15. I haven't used too many of the features, however had no need to yet. I would like somewhere to load bowls in the machine, but this is nowhere near a deal braker for me. All in all this is a great product

I've had a built in dish washer for years. When it died I bought The Maytag. I never Knew how awful My old machine worked until I used the Maytag. This machine gets my dishes sparkling clean every load where my old machine always left some dishes that had to be rewashed by hand. I love this dishwasher!!!
Fits our purposes
from Pierce, NE
Works great and fits the needs of our family. My only complaint is that all dishes (bowls especially) have to be loaded the same direction, or otherwise they need a second wash. Our house was built in 1923, so we needed a dishwasher that could stand alone, and this one fits the bill.
We purchased another Maytag dishwasher primarily because our previous portable dishwasher was a Maytag and it lasted over 28 years! It actually still worked but the wheels were wearing out due to daily use. It's hard to beat that kind of life from any appliance.
This dishwasher does exactly what we wanted it to.
No room in our old house kitchen for a dishwasher but it fits in the laundry room/mudroom off the kitchen. It's quiet compared to dishwashers we've had in the past. Does an good job of cleaning. We use it every other day. If you have a large family you may want something a little bigger. We've been using this for about two months.
