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.

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

Great service as always
Powerhouse Cleaner in a small package
By The Chicagoan

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
from Wheatfield, New York
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!
It is compact and easy to move and hook up.

In my experience, Maytag makes good quality appliances. The dishwasher's performance is what I expected. To save energy and water, I generally fill it up and run it every second day. The only draw back is that there isn't enough room for the pots and pans which need to be washed by hand.
Cleans dishes good
from Toledo, OH
Cleans dishes good and its easy to run. The only problem I have is the rack on top is not big enough for all glassware.

So pleased with this
from Western Maryland
I got this because I had a countertop dishwasher that was just slightly larger than a microwave. I couldn't wash larger items & am disabled, so this was a problem. I was looking for some specific features, & this met MOST of them. First, I needed a portable because I rent. Unfortunately, that means almost double the price of a built-in with the same features. Doesn't matter which brand, they're all expensive. Second, I wanted heated dry. Third, a hard food disposer, which it turns out is not available on most portables. Last, a stainless steel interior. Oh well, 3 out of 4 features isn't too bad. Love the capacity, but the layout is kind of quirky. Love the cleaning & sanitizing options. Love the layout of the cleaning arms & jets. Love the heated dry. The noise level isn't bad at all. Now for the cons. The panel doesn't indicate where the dishwasher is in the cycle. The interior, as I previously mentioned, isn't stainless, which would help cleaning & drying by retaining heat better. The layout of the rack tines is kind of odd, so some juggling is necessary to ensure that a full load will get thoroughly cleaned. There is no end-of-cycle chime, so I have to remember to check to see if I can turn off the water. The only other problems/potential problems I noted were that the hose faucet connector can be difficult to attach, leading me to wonder if it's going to break at some point; and, when I attached the casters, I noticed that there is a plastic hose underneath. I don't know if this is used each time the machine is run, or if it would only be used if the washer was permanently installed, but either way I would expect to find a reinforced hose, & it is a bit of a concern. Just like every other dishwasher I've ever used, it doesn't dry plastics well. It would have been wonderful if the casters had been pre-installed, & completely reasonable given the fact that this is advertised as portable. Overall, despite its shortcomings, I am extremely pleased with my purchase.
