Comments about Maytag Jetclean White Built-In Dishwasher:

The delivery was great; on time; absolutely knew what they were doing.
I had an older model Maytag dishwasher....was very happy with its performance, sound, shortness of cycles, and finished light. This one does not dry very well; still drippy wet after days of no attention (I sometimes go away for a few days; and I wash dishes just before I leave and leave the dishwasher on when I leave. Very quiet; cleans very well....I do not like the length of time it takes to do a load, even on quick cycle, nor am I happy that it does not dry. The inside of the door is drippy wet.

Service and delivery comments:

Yes. Yes. Did not use Abt's, but did call Maytag.

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

    This dishwasher is just fine. I haven't quite figured out how to lower the top rack for stemmed glasses and wash dinner plates at the same time. The rinse bar is obstructed by the dinner plates (they are not oversized). I don't normally use the dry function but have been since I got this machine and find that it doesn't work much better that letting them dry naturally. I haven't tried the extra dry function as it doesn't matter that much to me. I don't think this machine is that loud. The cycles are long but that's true with most energy efficient products I think. It doesn't bother me because I'm used to it from my last dishwasher and my current front load washing machine. I have not tried any of the additional options, so I can't review them. I would definitely recommend it especially for the price over the very similar KitchenAid models. As always ABT was the best.

    With heavier debris left on the plates, sometimes I'll notice a food particle or two remaining. But, when I scrape and lightly rinse before loading, it always comes out clean. I would buy this product again.

      Great machine. It has all of my criteria on it. Heated wash and dry, food disposer, and non-corrosive baskets. The only thing I miss is the 3rd rack my previous Maytag had. It does everything except put the clean dishes away.

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

      Have had the dishwasher about a month. So far so good. It's very quiet, so much so that we often don't realize when it has finished the cycle. First run did not clean the dishes very well, but all subsequent runs have cleaned the dishes very well. Occasionally get that one dish or piece of silverware that doesn't get clean, but that happens with any dishwasher I've owned. We run the dishwasher probably every other day. We do not use it for pots and pans so I cant comment on effectiveness there. Lots of space and special rack featured. Top rack is height adjustable and has special grips for wine glasses to hold the stems. Also two flip down guards to hold smaller items in place and a small basket for lids (very handy). Bottom rack has well spaced tines and holds all of our plates and bowls with no problem. There are two removable silverware baskets. Each piece of silverware gets its own slot. I thought that would be a pain, but turns out its pretty handy. There is also a corner basket for your odd sized spoons and other items. There is a flip up rack in the back that adds extra tines for dishes or can be flipped back for bowls. Also another guard to hold smaller items down.

      We use liquid dishwasher detergent and liquid jet dry. Dishes always come out dry, but you have to let the heated drying cycle finish first.
      Installation was a breeze, just don't forget to buy a new water line attachment, the one from our old dishwasher was not compatible.

      The loading process is slightly annoying. The blade that shoots out water makes it tough to use large dinner plates with this dishwasher.

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

        It was easy to install. However, we had to buy the plug separately, because we have an outlet in an access panel behind the dishwasher. The dishwasher seems to work well, it's quiet, and the dishes come out clean. The only issue is that it doesn't dry as well as the "dated" Maytag that it replaced. I do use the rinse aid. I don't know why it doesn't dry as well, but it is something that I can easily live with, and the dishwasher itself looks great!

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

          This unit replaced a top of the line, very expensive KitchenAid. It runs circles around that KitchenAid! It cleans beautifully and there is never a need to rewash anything. Can't say that about it predecessor, however, the predecessor was much quieter. I'm not listing that as a con, though, because it is quiet. It does not disturb, but you can hear it running. I only mention that because I have read in other reviews that people say they have to put their head next to the door to hear it run. I think they need their hearing checked. I love this Maytag, and it washes dishes better than ANY dishwasher I have ever had! If that's what you want in a dishwasher - clean, dry, sanitized dishes - then get this Maytag.
