My old dishwasher went out very suddenly and I needed a new dishwasher. I did not plan on the purchase so I was wanting a reasonable priced dishwasher but did not want a cheap one where it is not worth the money you put out for. I have always trusted Maytag and found this one on sale. I purchased this Maytag and I have been pleasantly surprised. It is a quiet machine, but really cleans the dishes. I love the steam clean because it is just my husband and I and there are days when the dishes are in for a couple of days before I turn on. Also I have put in casserole dishes that I do not expect to get all the way clean and this dishwasher has cleaned it spotless. I cannot think of any cons because I have been impressed with this dishwasher. I just hope Maytag keeps up there tradition and this dishwasher lasts for a long time.

NOTE: I had intended this as a review, but inadvertently posted it as a comment to another review of this product. If you are seeing this a second time, that is why.This is a nice dishwasher - very, very quiet, which is a real plus in our tiny 1000 square foot ranch-style home. We only installed it a week ago, so I cannot comment on all the features, but I hope the following comments help anyone considering this model:1. Very, very quiet. We live in 1000 square foot ranch with an open concept living room/kitchen/dining area. This model is so quiet that we could run it while entertaining in the living room if we wanted to and not have a problem with conversation (probably wouldn't, but we could)!2. Top controls: A bit difficult to read when the dishwasher is closed, but we are able to see the position of the lights and have been able to "guesstimate" the cycle status based on that. Not a big deal.3. Adjustable top rack: Maytag could improve on this feature (or at least on it's marketing). One of the primary reasons we purchased this particular model was the advertised adjustable top rack. The User Guide that came as part of the packaging showed easy to use Rack Adjusters for lifting and lowering the top rack. We could not locate these on our dishwasher. After talking with a customer service rep, it appears that our model, while it does in fact have an adjustable top-rack, does not work that way. We were disappointed to learn that we have to remove two small hard-plastic tabs from the rack tracks, remove the rack and place it in the desired track and then replace the plastic tabs (so that the rack doesn't fall out). I have not been able to remove the plastic tabs myself - my husband has had to remove them each time. I can only imagine how difficult this would be for someone with arthritis or joint weakness. Another concern is that the tabs will break - or drop and wind up under a cabinet or the refrigerator. If that were to happen, we would not be able to use the top rack until we found or replaced the tabs since the top rack will most definitely fall out. We encourage Maytag to consider installing the Rack Adjusters on all units that advertise the adjustable top rack. If this is not an option, then we encourage Maytag to revise the advertising to reflect the difference between models.Drying: The inside of the unit does remain quite wet even after the heated cycle, but Maytag does recommend a rinse aid to facilitate better drying, so we will try that and see if it helps. We would rather not have to purchase and use yet another product since it impacts our budget, but this is more of an inconvenience - not a complaint.Other features: This unit does offer many cycle options, and while we have not yet tried them all, we are confident that the actual dish-washing features will reflect Maytag's history of high quality performance.

Don't buy it
from Keene NH
We bought this three years ago. The control buttons are hard to read and difficult to activate. The system failed after three years and cost us $400 to repair, almost the cost of the new machine.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Sleek and Functional
from Columbus, OH
I love this new dishwasher! Our old one (from the 1980s...no joke) finally gave out, so we bought this one. I know stainless steel is the popular choice, but honestly the white blends in so much better with our white cabinets and our kitchen looks sleek and seamless with the white dishwasher and hidden controls. I love all the controls and settings and that they are hidden on the top of the door. All of our dishes and pots and pans fit well into the dishwasher and I also love how clean it gets everything.
So very sorry.....
By Shez Miss Clean
from Chesapeake, VA
My daughter gave this to me as a Birthday gift. To my horror, I couldn't be more disappointed. Taking 180 minutes for a normal cycle is rediculous. Really??? Two & a half hours & they don't even dry them. I want to get another dishwasher that actually works. (Like my Whirlpool that I had for 15 years). I honestly would have given it Zero stars. Sorry Maytag. I truly am.
Effective and quiet
from Houston, TX
I bought this a few weeks ago and have been very happy with its performance so far. Top rack is great even for large glasses and the silverware baskets are very handy. My only gripe is that it is hard for plates to stay upright on the bottom rack if they have a curved/raised lip.
Works really well.
from Parsippany, NJ
I bought this dishwasher about 2 months ago. It's really quiet and the dishes come out nice and clean. Also the cycle is not too long.
DW has a horrible smell at first. However after several washings seems to be getting better. Still trying to figure out how to use it. We are using the Normal/Heat Dry setting for now. Only thing is, the dishes are getting clean, but the drying part is not doing it's job, every load the dishes are still wet. Other than that, DW ok. Quiet!
It meets my needs
from Carson, CA
finally getting what works for me is a very relaxing feeling. The unit is quiet and the dishes are clean. Mission accomplished!
Fantastic for 3 young boy families!
from Riverside, CA
It has the controls on the top so that our 14 month old can not change the setting as well as our 5 and 7 year olds. Using it twice a day we are not concerned with the motor wearing out. All the advantages inside with being able to put in all kinds and shapes of material (like dishes, pans detc.)is an advantage. Having them all come out clean and sparkling is wonderful! Our deepest thanks go to those who put this dishwasher together. It has made our hectic life easier. With our three active, intelligent boys we need all the help we can get!! Yes, for Maytag!!!!I am the active 88 year old great grandmother who, with my husband is living in my home with our grandchildren, Jessica and Andrew and three great grand children, Landen, Kendry and Mc Cormick. They are living in my home to take care of my husband and me the remainder of our lives. We have a very loving and extremely active home and we would not change it for the world. You can see what a real blessing the Maytag has been for us all. Sorry I don't know how to put pictures and don't have any internet stuff.
Nice looking and solid unit
from Yulee, FL, United States
I had this installed a couple weeks ago and so far so good. I will be able to give you a more in-depth review after a few months of use.
