Most Powerful Motor on the Market 2

Maytag® dishwashers feature the most powerful motor on the market 2 . Powerful enough to handle dried-on egg yolk and peanut butter without prerinsing, this motor can handle your dirtiest dishes.

Image Feature

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.

Better Built to handle your dirtiest dishes Maytag builds one tough dishwasher. We packed these models with sturdy stainless steel that'll stand up to years of the toughest cleaning jobs--everywhere from the Fingerprint Resistant Stainless Steel exterior to the stainless steel tub. Then we tossed in the strength of the most powerful motor on the market along with our 4-blade stainless steel chopper, so you can be sure what you put in comes out clean. Plus, we proudly stand behind our promises with a 10-year limited parts warranty 1 that means these dishwashers are built for the long haul.

Fingerprint Resistant Stainless Steel Easy-to-clean, fingerprint resistant stainless steel finish keeps your range looking as good on the outside as it works on the inside. Material Specs: Door: Fingerprint Resistant Stainless Steel, Console: Coated Aluminum

10 Year Limited Parts Warranty 5 Maytag® dishwashers are covered by a 10-year limited parts warranty 3 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. 5 Visit maytag.com for warranty details.

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.

Love this dishwasher!!

Grani 3/28/2017

I had this machine installed a month or so ago. I am so glad I bought it. It is soo so quiet when running. I forget that I start it until I see the "clean" light on. Only one thing I would change is the utensil holder and I would put it in the front. It is rather flimsy. Otherwise, I am very happy with my Maytag dishwasher.

We think it is great and dries the dishes so well. We are very pleased with its performance and the extremely nice appearance of our new dishwasher.

Perfect for us

BB in Franklin 3/20/2017

We like this dishwasher because it doesn't have glitzy features that we never use. It does a great job cleaning and the cutlery basket is on the side instead of attached to the door. It's much quieter than our previous Maytag that this replaced, but that wasn't high on our features list. The only negative thing I have is that I can't pack it with as many items as before. But it still holds a lot.

Frugal Friend 12/2/2015

Our 20 year old previous dishwasher was so loud that you couldn't be in the kitchen when it was running -- this one is a dream -- so quiet that the dog will sleep next to it when running! Excellent quick cycle of under an hour and energy efficient. Large capacity. Definitely recommend.

Poor warranty service.

RC 11/19/2015

Rinse dispenser hasn't worked since new. No local authorized service center. Strong Arm Appliance Service out of Jonesboro only authorized service for our area. They only come to Batesville on Wednesdays, so I had to take off work to meet them. I had to call Maytag 800 number again to find out my service status as Strong Arm Appliance has not kept me informed. Part still on backorder a month after service call. Maytag told me they could only suggest the service company keep the customer informed. Dishwasher may be Ok, but warranty service is lacking.

Update to previous Review.....Works Great

a_b 10/31/2015

I wrote a previous review when I was having problems with the top shelf dishes getting washed. I don't know how to change that review so I am just writing another. As it turns out, one of my kids turned the water valve leading to the dishwasher way down (I don't know why). The lack of pressure in the line was why there was no pressure in the washer. Since we figured it out, this dishwasher has worked as advertised again.

Top Shelf Dishes Do Not Get Clean

Dish Dad 10/21/2015

I've had this for 4 months now and at first, it seemed to work as advertised. Recently, it seems that the top shelf simply doesn't clean any dishes. I don't think the spinning spray arm works half the time. Another weird thing is that the top shelf dishes come out "greasy", even if there was no grease on them to begin with (like drinking glasses). It seems that anything that was on the lower shelf dishes, simply gets blown to the top shelf dishes.

CJ 10/10/2015

I upgraded to this new Stainless version, I really want my old dishwasher back. This smells after 1 day of rinsed dishes in it, it doesn't get dishes clean and I've tried all kinds of dishwasher soap. It melted one of my plastic wares that I've put in the dishwasher for years, so I now don't use heated dry.....cant wait to get rid of it and go back to something else.

Maybe I got a lemon

missonyxk9 9/14/2015

We bought our first home and with it needed a few new appliances. I had previously won a Maytag refrigerator and love it so decided to also get a Maytag dishwasher. The 10 year old generic dishwasher in our rental worked better, sorry to say. After the first few uses, it stinks and it's getting worse. I just today opened the dishwasher to load more dirty dishes and a few of the bowls and mugs that were already in the dishwasher were growing mold on them. It does an ok job cleaning some things, but other things look exactly like when I put them in. I'm back to almost washing the dishes clean before putting them in. I do not like the top rack at all. I don't think the graduated level is needed as my tallest glass still fits on the short side. The clips on the side of the rack mean I can't put some of my glasses in that spot because they're "too wide" for that area with the clip. Where the arm is underneath the top rack, the pipe for the water to reach the spray arm is so wide that anything you put above the pipe isn't going to come clean. The bottom rack is great. The silverware rack is perfect. I love the stainless interior. The exterior look is nice. It's extremely quiet. I would not buy this dishwasher again.

Barb 8/25/2015

I wish i could give a 5 star rating. My old Sears dishwasher was still performing, but I wanted to update to a stainless steel tub. Good things: runs very quietly , looks good. My problem I am having is that it does not seem to remove coffee or tea stains and I see bits of food on fork. I have tried every cycle. It is also hard to read the settings. I am disappointed with my purchase.

Quite and Efficient

MPTJR11 8/5/2015

After 13 years our other Maytag dishwasher finally gave up the ghost. Our newest one is even quieter and more efficient in cleaning than the previous one; it's barely noticeable when running. Every so often one needs just one item that has been cleaned (e.g., a dog dish). My only "complaint" is that the lights go off immediately once the door is opened and do not come back on when I get the one item. It's the same thing with starting up if one has to add a dirty item; it's start over. I've purchased a "clean/dirty" magnet.
