    This unit was purchased to replace a eight year old dishwasher that wasn't performing up to par. Noise level: After I installed this dishwasher, which was pretty painless; the first thing I did was run a test wash to check for leaks. I did this without the bottom access panel attached, because...well... I was checking for leaks. Even with this panel off it was easy to notice how much quieter it was compared to my previous model. No leaks found, so I installed the access panel & WOW! you can hardly hear this thing running while standing next to it...very impressive. Performance: Of course no matter how quiet it is, it still needs to perform. We have had it for over a month now & it has never left any item uncleaned. No pre-rinsing required; this thing really works amazingly. No soap scum on glassware, baked-on mess...goodbye, silverware comes out sparkling; it cleans just as you would expect it to. Racks: The racks are well-designed & allow oddly shaped dishes to fit without a hassle, this is assisted by the fold-down tines & adjustable upper rack. The "split & fit" silverware baskets allow you to choose where they fit best for your needs. Style: Insert your own opinion here. We purchased the white unit & I was really impressed by how "clean" uncluttered it looks, my wife thinks it looks a "bit boring"...to each his / her own. Reliability: Only time will tell. Cons: The only complaint that I have is that concave-bottomed items like some glassware & plastic bowls; do not entirely dry. Not sure if you can really blame the dishwasher here or the designer of the glassware / bowls? Even with the extra heat option selected there is still some moisture present on these particular pieces. Don't misunderstand; I'm talking dampness here not a deluge of water. Overall, I would 100% recommend this dishwasher to anyone who will listen.

    When my 98' stainless steel Kenmore Elite dishwasher finally gave out, I did a lot of research to find another comparable unit. Off all the dishwasher brands out there, I found this one to have the highest overall rating and satisfaction. We've had this dishwasher for about a month now. I like the looks of the exterior and interior. But for cleaning purposes, this unit gets a rating below average. Some glassware comes out foggy and the heat settings never dry up all the water. And not talking about just a few drops of water. On plastic items, using the tough scrub setting, doesn't thoroughly clean and leaves a sticky film behind. We've tried all the different setting combinations and get the same results. I sure wish I could have just replaced my old unit. But even that brand now has terrible ratings/reviews. I've noticed that the quality of appliances have really gone down hill over the years. And many of the repair and salesman I have spoken to have said the same thing. I would like to change this unit out, but given the price I paid and the other reviews of the higher priced units, this will have to do.

            Have many comments from others about how quiet my dishwasher is. I really like the stainless steel inside. We have hard water and it doesn't seem to stain the inside like my old one did that was white on the inside.

                Comments about Maytag Monochromatic Stainless Steel Jetclean Plus Built-In Dishwasher:

                Lived up to our need for quiet as is part of integrated family room kitchen. Cleans wonderfully and to date have only used normal cycle. Only concern is that the upper racks feel a little unstable and loose so I am afraid to put anything heavy in top front. Could have to do with the adjustability. Time to review the manual! Also my fiesta bowls have to be put in sideways in bottom instead of with plates and fiesta mugs too wide for parts of top rack so this dishwasher harder to fit everything in compared to Maytag we replaced. first maytag bought was stillll performing well after 10 years. Racks were disintergating but still ran well and cleaned wonderfully. Would probably still be using if we had not remodeled kitchen. So no brainier to chose another maytag!

                    I was very happy to find this particular dishwasher after reading disappointing reviews of well known dishwasher brands and finding that they were eliminating hard food grinders in favor of filters that must be cleaned manually. Who wants to do that? This dishwasher features a hard food grinder, and works great! It loads easily, and cleans very well. The rinse cycle saves me a lot of time cleaning up after meals. If I run the rinse cycle after dinner, I can skip scraping the dishes (and to a large extent pots and pans) and still have a sparkling clean load after running the normal cycle in the morning after adding cereal bowls. This practice did not work nearly as well with my old dishwasher. If you do run the rinse cycle, just make sure that the normal cycle lights up when you press it to run the next morning. Sometimes the setting reverts back to rinse and runs that cycle again instead. Once you know to check for that, it's not a problem. I have been very happy with the performance and like the look of the integrated controls.

                                Difficult to find any faults with this top performing dishwasher. Purchased a Maytag because of 16 years of long, dependable and trouble-free service from clothes washer and dryer. These units are virtually bullet-proof ...never had a single repair.

                                    The machine works well, is stylish and easy to operate. The controls a hidden at the top of the machine and accessible. Dishes are well washed and dried! It is reasonably quiet. It is adjustable to accommodate larger items on the top shelf. Would be great if parts of the racks could fold down to accommodate pots. Does retain odor even with clean dishes hand washed and placed in washer.

                                      I was disappointed at the capacity that this machine has compared to my old one. Never realized on showroom floor' Top mounted controls make it impossible to tell when the load has completed. the bottom shelf continually comes off the track which is annoying, We purchased this machine because we had a Maytag for many years. My wife hates it and given the opportunity we would give this machine back in a heartbeat.

                                      Purchased this dishwasher to replace one that wasn't cleaning well. First few months were great; however, same issue has materialized as the one we replaced. There have been NO changes to ours dishwashing soap, water, water pressure. Am now hand washing dishes as I have to re-wash what doesn't get clean in the dishwasher.
