Maytag 24" Stainless Steel Built-In Dishwasher - MDB4949SHZ

If your dishwasher leaves food particles clinging to your dishware, then it is about time you upgraded to a more effective appliance. The MDB4949SHZ dishwasher from Maytag offers the most powerful motor on the market, letting you skip the rinse before loading your dishes. This forceful motor makes light work of even dried-on foods, drastically reducing the time you have to spend on dishes. Despite its beastly motor, the Maytag MDB4949SHZ runs at a subdued 50 dBA, about the noise level of a quiet office. The muffled operational noise allows you to hang around the kitchen while the machine is running without sacrificing your conversation to the din of a noisy appliance. Quiet and energy efficient, the powerful motor in the MDB4949SHZ dishwasher from Maytag actually uses less power than many of its competitors. This efficiency earned the appliance ENERGY STAR® certification, with an estimated yearly energy bill of just $35.

Bringing the Maytag MDB4949SHZ into your life cuts back on the time you'll spend cleaning up, and it will continue to do so for years to come. Maytag tests the motor on this incredible machine extensively, boasting twice the endurance of other machines, based on accelerated 20-year life testing. And with a 10-Year Limited Parts warranty backing the stainless steel tub, racks, and chopper blade on the dishwasher, Maytag guarantees the quality of their craftsmanship. The stainless steel tub resists cracks and stains more effectively than their plastic counterparts, ensuring a long life free from rust. Similarly, premium DuraGuard® nylon racks inside the Maytag MDB4949SHZ resist rust with a heavy-duty coating sure outlast their competition. The 4-blade stainless steel chopper breaks down food particles to prevent them from getting stuck to your dishware. This durable chopper extends the life of both the MDB4949SHZ dishwasher from Maytag and your dishware, by preventing large particles from slowly corroding either. Upgrade your kitchen with the Maytag MDB4949SHZ today and it should lighten your load well into the next decade.
