We totally remodeled our kitchen. White Oak, black & white and clean lines. Functionality, quiet, durability and energy efficiency are our demands of every appliance. As a teen I repaired appliances for a living before moving on. Maytag always impressed me with operation, features and ease of repair, especially units that had no service, that were older than I was. This model is very clean, inside and out. A single handle to hang tea towels, we do, and hidden controls on top. Smart wash cycles that use less water than hand washing, a steam sanitize cycle, and an adjustable upper rack. The dishes always come out clean and it is difficult to tell if it is running at all. The smooth glide racks work too well, so make sure it is level or they might slide out by itself all the time, trust me. The rinse agent is adjustable, so if you have a water softener or hard water, it can be set for both. The soap dispenser and rinse agent and are easy access. And the lower rack has a special design so you can not block the soap/rinse area with dishes. The racks have wine glass stem holders that fold away when not in use, and a bunch of other stuff I have not figured out yet. Clips, fold away parts on the upper & lower racks. We have had zero problems, except if we overload the utensil rack and a spatula gets caught in the door gasket, a little water gets on the tile floor. Our fault, not the dishwashers! We have loaded it so full, that we had to rearrange several times so the wash arm spins freely, and the dishes always come out clean. Thanks Maytag!

I rated the quality poor because of the stainless steel finish. I had the dishwasher for less than 3 months when rust started to show up on the front door. I called Maytag and was disappointed that rust is not covered under their warranty. I was able to clean it up some but it continues to come back every couple months. I spent a lot of money and got what i feel is a sub-standard finish, which is extremely frustrating. As for the performance...its great. The dishwasher cleans very well and is pretty quiet. I would recommend the black or white but would warn people against the poor quality stainless finish.

Control panel is not Good

By 

from Kalamazoo Michigan

Comments about Maytag Jetclean Plus Stainless Dishwasher:

Unit cleans nice when you can get it to run. The control panel is not very responsive and sometimes becomes completely unresponsive and then there are times when it only give you a few select options to wash your dishes. This is not representative of the Price that is being charged for this machine. Very un happy because controls do not last very long. Maytag has had many complaintes but still insists on charging customer to repair a known problem.

Functionally Adequate - Easy to Use -Slight leakage

By 

from Geneva, Ohio

Verified Buyer

Comments about Maytag Jetclean Plus Stainless Dishwasher:

Good unit! Low noise, attractive and easy to use. One downside that we have been unable to solve is the period seepage of water onto the insulating material at the bottom of the door. We have tried all the recommendations and the issue still persists. We have always use the Cascade soap packets, all filter and drains are clear, float switch seems to work and unit is level. Getting the bottom of the door insulation material damp at times is not a deal breaker as it dries out fast and has only a couple times actually dripped on floor.

Problems with control panel

By 

from Sheboygan, WI

Comments about Maytag Jetclean Plus Stainless Dishwasher:

The control panel has had intermittent problems since it was under warrantee. We had a call in for service (under warrantee), but the service trip did not happen. The control panel buttons do not work sometimes and we never know what mode of operation it is in. Online discussion shows that this model has a lot of problems with this issue. Now we are ordering a new control panel out of our pocket to try to fix it. I will be doing the work myself.

Best dishwasher

By 

from Dunedin Florida

Verified Buyer

Comments about Maytag Jetclean Plus Stainless Dishwasher:

I bought this dishwasher 2 months ago and absolutely love it. Cleans and dries the dishes beautifully so quiet that I have to check and see if it is running. The racks hold everything in place and glide in and out so effortlessly. Best appliance choice you could make.
