Maytag Built-In Black Dishwasher - MDB6949SDE

This reliable dishwasher features the strength of the most powerful motor on the market, so you can count on it to handle whatever you're cleaning up after dinner. Its food disposer with a 4-blade stainless steel chopper disintegrates food particles so there's no need to prerinse. Plus, this powerful dishwasher is packed with stainless steel to handle high heat and resist stains, and the industry-exclusive stainless steel silverware basket will stand up to the toughest cleaning. All that—and the fact that it's assembled in Findlay, Ohio at the largest dishwasher manufacturing plant in the world—make this reliable dishwasher vintage Maytag.

Key Features:

  • Most Powerful Motor on the Market - Maytag® dishwashers feature the most powerful motor on the market, so you can be sure what you put in comes out clean.
  • 4-Blade Stainless Steel Chopper - No more scraping plates. The 4-blade stainless steel chopper disintegrates the food particles that come off your dishes so they don't end up recirculating and sticking to your dishes and glassware.
  • Built for the Long Haul - We wanted to build you the toughest dishwashers possible, so we packed them with sturdy stainless steel that'll stand up to years of the toughest cleaning and the worst wear. Made to handle high heat and less likely to crack than plastic, the stainless steel materials also resist stains and cracking to help keep your dishwasher looking good for years to come.


PowerBlast™ Cycle

The PowerBlast™ cycle removes stuck-on food with high pressure spray jets, increased temperature and hot steam to finish the job.

10-Year Limited Warranty on Racks, Stainless Steel Tub, and Chopper

Maytag® dishwashers are covered by a 10-year limited parts warranty1 on the racks, chopper blade and stainless steel tub, so when we say you can count on Maytag® dishwashers for years of cleaning performance, we mean it.

Designed, Engineered and Assembled in the USA

From Ohio to you, every Maytag® dishwasher is designed, engineered and assembled in the U.S.A.

Industry-Exclusive Stainless Steel Silverware Basket

Our industry-exclusive stainless steel silverware basket is built tough to handle whatever you throw at it.

Our Quietest Dishwashers Ever at 47 dBA

They said it couldn't be done, but we built our quietest dishwashers ever with the strength to handle your toughest loads. They're made to perform at only 47 dBA, so you can enjoy the cleaning power of a mighty Maytag® dishwasher without the ruckus. Per IEC standards.

30-Day Quiet Guarantee

If you're not completely satisfied that your new Maytag® dishwasher is quieter than your previous model, it may be returned within 30 days of the date of purchase for a full refund. 30-Day Quiet Guarantee valid through 12/31/14; visit maytag.com for details.

2X Life2 Tested Motor

Our 2X Life2 tested motor* is built to last and tested to prove it. Twice life testing based on accelerated 20-year life testing, normal cycle, average use.

Full Stainless Steel Tub

The full stainless steel tub is built of stainless steel from top to bottom, so it’s tough enough to handle high heat and resist cracking and staining for years.

Premium Rack Adjusters

Premium rack adjusters on the upper rack allow you to move the rack up or down, giving you the flexibility to fit your glassware, cookware and more.

Tiered Upper Rack

When cleaning up after a big meal, you always need room to fit just one more glass or plate. The tiered upper rack is designed like stadium seating to hold large plates and taller items. In the lower rack, this creates enough space to place two 9" x 13" pans vertically.

Premium DuraGuard® Nylon Racks

Premium DuraGuard® nylon racks have a heavy-duty coating that resists rust.

Energy Star® Qualified

ENERGY STAR® qualified dishwashers use less water and energy than standard models helping to save money on utility bills.

Steam Sanitize Option

The Steam Sanitize option lets you confidently wash important items with a high-temperature rinse that reduces 99.999% of food soil bacteria.

End-Of-Cycle Countdown

The end-of-cycle countdown tracks the time remaining in your wash cycle with a three digit display on the console, so you'll know right when your dishes will be done.

    Good so far. I have had a 2 month usage. I need to read the instructions on the best approach to load the dishwasher. The top rack is some what
    awkward in loading items.

    Comments about Maytag Built-In Black Dishwasher:

    I am generally pleased with this item. The cons of a VERY long cycle unless you "pre-wipe", stems not from the product itself, but rather the regulations put in place to reduce water use and phosphates being released into our sewer systems. It might get some taking used to if your old dishwasher was a dynamo and had a quick cycle... I do love the all stainless throughout including untensil holders.
