    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.

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

        This product is so quiet, it's hard to tell if it's running. Dishes come out squeaky clean. Love the steam sanitize feature - use it whenever someone in the house is sick. I chose this dishwasher based on its look - clean front, all stainless, nice handle, no controls on front - but it has served me well in every area a dishwasher can serve.

            I like the stainless steel tub and the features of this dishwasher. My only minor complaint, I don't like the bottom rack in this model as I did in my old Maytag. Unless you are loading plates, it is harder to load bigger items like glass bowls, etc.

                Fantastic dishwasher! It looks fantastic. It cleans extremely well. We cant hear it even from across the kitchen. We used to have to turn up the TV in the living room when the old one came on. This is fantastically quiet.

                          I have had a lot of luck with Maytag products in the past, and this one so far has not disappointed me. It cleans the dishes excellent and is very quiet. The stainless steel tub and food grinder at the bottom is a pleasant addition from my last dihwasher. I highly recommend this dishwasher to others.

                              I've had this dishwasher for a few months so far and I love it! The only thing (which I knew from the reviews prior to buying it) was that you can't tell that its running or finished etc.... I usually run it at night so its not a big issue ... If I run it during the day I put up a sign for my kids saying "Dont open" and then they just feel it.....if its warm they know not to open it!!

                                      Our upgrade to this unit was night-and-day to our older Frigidaire. With a living area and kitchen in such close proximity, a reduction in sound was a must. The interior of the unit looks and feels 100% quality, the rack adjustments and space give some flexibility. And best of all, was able to install myself without any issues. Only con, when we move in a month we don't get to take it with us...and we just installed it a few months ago.
