    Beyond expectations!

    I've had much better luck going by the reviews of products by actual purchasers of the products rather than going by the consumer magazines. To be fair this dishwasher only received middling recommendations in the consumer mags which were in deep contrast to the reviews by actual users who were by and large immensely pleased with this model. So, we've only had it installed for a week and I can tell you I never expected it to perform this well. After seeing how good the initial results were in cleaning everything we intentionally put in dishes and bowls with baked on and dried up food which we didn't think there was any way the dishwasher could clean them. They had stuff on them that you'd really have to scrub at if you wanted to clean them manually. Nonetheless they came out perfectly clean! We were stunned to say the least. As far as sound is concerned, I have to say you can barely tell this thing is running, it's that quiet. Our old dishwasher you could hear all over the house. We could tell if it was running from our bedroom which is pretty far away from the kitchen. With this one there is no way we could here it running from our bedroom. As far as the time it takes to wash dishes is concerned, it's very much in line with what we've seen from other models, even the more expensive one. For us the time is not an issue. There is a 1 hour quick cycle which we could use if we wanted to. However we generally start the dishwasher before we go to bed and then unload it in the morning. So, the difference between it taking 1, 2 or even three hours is irrelevant. I was going to install it myself however Bestbuy offered free delivery and installation with this manufacturer at the time I purchased it. I was very impressed and happy with the installation. First of all I was only expecting one guy to show up. There were three. Second, they showed up exactly on time. Third, they installed it with great care, taking their time to fit it into the cabinet as best as possible and very carefully, making sure not to damage any part of the cabinet it fit into. Fourth, they were very fast and efficient. They were at my house for less that a half hour. Couldn't ask for more. More on the dishwasher itself, I'm very impressed with how much we can fit into it. I am also impressed by how well it dries. I don't see where anyone would be disappointed in this model. Perhaps others are looking for things we were not looking for. For example I find the notion of hidden controls to be rather irritating. Others may be looking for that feature and find it beneficial. Then there's the matter of it's price. This model is close to half the price of the dishwashers recommended by the consumer magazines. I've checked them out and don't see for our purposes what the advantage would be of spending close to twice the price for the consumer magazine recommended models. I highly recommend considering this model.

    Ok Affordable Dishwasher

    I purchased this dishwasher as a replacement for an older dishwasher that stopped working. I choose this one mainly because of the price and promotion for free installation. Also it looked to have good reviews. I got the stainless steel model since it was on sale for the same price as the white and black. Overall appearance of the dishwasher is ok. I took off the stickers and even the Maytag emblem on the front which I thought looked a little out of place. The emblem came off pretty easy and did not leave any mark behind which was nice. I noticed the door panel on mine kind of pops in and out depending on the position. Not a big deal, but it is probably not supposed to do that. The door is kind of hard to open, but it is adjustable. Note, if you are going to adjust it, make sure to do it before it is installed. Space inside is ok but somehow it seems to have less space compared to my old dishwasher even though they are the same size. The top rack looks like it might be adjustable but this feature is only available on select models. The racks are a little difficult to move in and out and feel a bit wobbly. I tried the quick wash first which goes for about 1 hour. The noise level is quieter than my last dishwasher which is nice. You can still hear it from the next room, but it is not too bothersome. Dishes will take some time to dry after the quick wash. Overall the cleaning job was ok. The normal wash takes about 2 1/2 hours. It is supposed to use less water even though it runs longer. On this cycle, it does the heat dry option which helps dry the dishes but they were still a little wet after the wash. Some glasses on the top rack were still dirty and needed to be washed manually even after the normal wash. Overall I probably would not recommend this dishwasher unless you are on a budget and cannot find a better option in this price range. I also recommend seeing the dishwashers in store if possible to get a better understanding of them in person rather than just going by reviews online.

    We needed to replace a 2005 Kenmore that was already in the house. It was fine for its time but not performing as well recently. Also noise standards are now way better. Our household uses pots and pans heavily and the cooking is Asian Indian so utensils are spice-laden. Not easy to get clean kitchenware out, needless to say. And it needs to run once a day certainly and once in a week perhaps twice... Shopped for black unit for matching with others appliances. Our other appliances are also Maytag, btw. We have had this for less than a week, used it about 5 times so far. Each time, the output was flawless. Clean clean utensils, plates and silverware etc. (about 70% stainless steel, and 20% coffee mugs by volume). This was not even the powerwash cycle, just the normal one. This unit is quiet and looks classy. Overall outstanding unit. Proud of Maytag's performance (I know it is really a Whirlpool, but still made in the USA. Also standards have been kept high and is marketed between the Whirlpool and KitchenAid. And it is QUIET. The one neative is it fits slightly less stuff than the older Kenmore we replaced, but that OK, It is 5-10% loss in volume I think due to the silverware basket extending to the full length of the lower tray. In the Kenmore until it was perhaps about 3/4 length. Note to the Manufacturer. Please consider designing units for Asian kitchens if markets allow it. The technology is perhaps already there as is evident, it is mostly redesign of the interior trays to accommodate the utensils. The design of tines need to be re-looked at. I know it is out of place, but interestingly I was looking at the GEs as well, and came to know they are really the Chinese Haier now (starting 2016) and are allowed to use the GE logo until 2040. Avoid like the plague! Bad on GE. Finally, a note on Best Buys service. Overall they were fantastic on price (with "My Offer" I had an addl discount, NICE!). Second their service has really good, the Geek Squad guy that installed the unit was super. (Would have installed it myself, but I got enough discount that I could pay for the installation and stay within budget. Only gripe was I had to be on hold nearly 95 minutes to adjust my order. Will forgive it!!! Great job from BB overall - sales, availability and service. Plus on time too. Excellent!

    Meets every single expectation. I echo every 5 star review. This thing is a beast and for the value...look no further. The inside is huge, you can't even tell it's running and it would probably blow the paint off of your car. Again, it's a beast. A good lookin' one at that! I did a self install, the only PITA is that you must remove the hardware box to connect your wires. It's mounted upside down and backwards. I'm assuming they do this to force you to splice and terminate your wires correctly. You definitely cannot shortcut tgat part. Otherwise, barring any home plumbing malfunctions...find your breaker and it's 3 wires. After that it's simply 1 wrench point at the water supply and 1 screwdriver point to the sink drain. Done. If you are even somewhat handy, don't pay the $150 install fee. Seriously. You can do it. If you have a disposal and are apprehensive and/or not so handy, don't even try it because the electric panel is confusing if you've never unmounted (the only part that isn't really R&R) FYI, it is totally normal for your new dishwasher to have a slight amount of moisture. This is standard across the industry. This is due to actual live testing. Mine was built a week prior to delivery. Hope that helps with a few of the negative reviewers whom think they got a used unit. This is a GREAT dishwasher.

    Looks Nice & Quiet but it ends there

    I have owned many Maytag appliances in the past prior to them being absorbed by Whirlpool. I knew this but was hoping that the quality would still be maintained. I was sadly mistaken. I waited to write this review 6 months after purchase to try every iteration to try and be happy with this dishwasher. First, I must say it is very quiet and looks nice. Beyond that :( I spent about $600 and another $250 for installation and parts needed. I know there are dishwashers for much more money but this was a lot for me and the most I have ever spent on a dishwasher. Previously I purchased budget models in the $300 range. In order to try and get this dishwasher to do it's job I have used every setting. Currently I use the highest setting and select the extra heat, the sanitize option as well. This makes the run time over 4 hours! I should note that I don't have a lot of hard cleaning with baked on residue. I mostly cook on the stove and don't burn things and rinse out the pots and dishes well before placing them in the dishwasher. This dishwasher cant even get the most basic residue off the pans. We have come to virtually washing the dishes ahead of time and there is still residue. I am using name brand detergent, and name brand rinse agent but I still have spots. After using heated dry, there is still water on items... I don't know what to say but so far this has been the most disappointing appliance purchase ever. I will be glad to change my review if Maytag wants to look at it and tell me there is something wrong with it or I am doing something wrong. I really don't think this dishwasher was tested by engineers... If someone out there has good reviews, please let me know what I'm doing wrong.... Thanks, I hope this helps!

    My old dishwasher was a cheap basic model that was not really installed correctly and so the sink tended to train into the dishwasher... ugh! When that unit started making weird clicking noises I decided it was time to upgrade. This unit was on sale and had excellent reviews, plus at the time had a special offer of free installation through Best Buy, so I decided to splurge. After about a month I am very happy with the unit! It seems to clean well and is not super-complicated to understand; I just load it, add detergent, and then push "normal wash," "sanitize," and "heated dry off," then "start," and then a few hours later the dishes are done. Also, the front door panel does not seem to show finger prints or splash marks. I was super happy with the delivery and installation provided by Best Buy; not only was it free, but the guy called ahead, was polite, and was super-competent: he installed and tested the unit -- and fixed the drainage problem without tearing up my kitchen cabinets -- in less than an hour and a half. He even left a phone number in case there was a problem that showed up later, but I have not needed to call. I am very happy with the purchase so far, and especially with the ease and quality of the delivery and installation service.

    Seals constantly degrading

    Posted
    duxinco

    We ultimately had this dishwasher for four years, even though problems started immediately but reached unacceptable closer to three years. That is just not long enough for a dishwasher this price. The problems we faced were: -the plastics would never dry. Never. Regardless the wash setting, regardless how long they sat (like if we ran the dishwasher before going up to bed so to unload in the morning) still d-r-i-p-p-i-n-g wet. -never as quiet as we would have liked. -the seals started degrading after about three years, leaving black gunge on the entire interior of the dishwasher and on some items. We replaced (more than once) all the seals, cleaned like crazy the interior of the dishwasher (to remove all the black gunge), and it didn't matter. We decided it was just the age of the dishwasher, not the seals: even with brand-new seals, there was still black gunge everywhere. -the lights on some of the control buttons stopped working pretty early on, so we just had to know which cycle we'd selected. At the end of the day we were pretty disappointed to have spent any money, let alone this amount, on a dishwasher which was really only effective for three years. ("Effective" is being generous.) We will never purchase another Maytag product. Never.

    Beautiful dishwasher but leaked

    This dishwasher looks beautiful and washed my dishes great. The problem is it would leak about once every fifth load. It would leak near bottom right side of the door. I thought maybe I was blocking the water spray by loading too much dishes or something. Nope, no matter what I tried about every fifth load it would drop again. Since I only had the dishwasher for a month I debated whether to have best buy exchange it or call Maytag. Decided to call Maytag and I have to say their service is awesome. Not only did I get a hold of an actual person immediately, she put an order in to have someone come out within a day or two. Now the repairman (third party, not an actual Maytag repair man) ran some tests and after about thirty minutes he started taking the rubber (liners?) off the inside of the dishwasher. Then he changed the way the bottom part of the rubber was facing. Tells me that he's seen a few dishwashers like this (defect) in the way they put the rubber. Instead of sealing the dishwasher it was also preventing the water from draining and causing the the water to overflow and cause the drip. Haven't had any problems since but he told me only time will tell if this fixes it. So far no problems, keeping my fingers crossed. Other than the leak issue the dishwasher is great and Maytag has awesome service.

    excellent cleaning but far too short inside

    Posted
    stranded

    After a few weeks of using this dishwasher, I have to say I am overall happy with it. The installation was smooth, it runs so quietly you can barely hear it, everything has come out clean. The controls are easy to use and it has just the right amount of options for whatever you would need. There are a few things about this that make me take off a star on the rating. First is that the soap cup already doesn't want to close; it takes a few tries, and I'm fully expecting to have to replace it soon even though the unit is just under a month old. Second and more vexing is that the shelving on both top and bottom is lower/shorter than I need for a lot of my dishes, and it's causing problems. Several spatulas and other cooking utensils need to be placed in the holder sideways or else they'll block the top sprayer when it spins. I can't get the taller tumblers or pot lids to fit on the top rack at all. In fact, the varying width of the top racks makes the narrow far left rack almost useless, as nothing fits in it. Meanwhile, the placement of the prongs on the right side of the rack make it difficult to place cups properly. One coffee mug got chipped because it moved around, thanks to being too short to fit over the prongs, yet too wide to fit on the left side shelving where it would have been safer. The biggest issue is that having to lay things down or use extra space to fit everything means the loads are smaller, and I have to run dishes more often. When a load takes over 3 hours (normal cycle, hot wash, no heated dry) it's really inconvenient to have to run it twice in one day. As much as I like this unit, for the price point I would have expected just a little bit more as far as interior space management goes.

    Ok, so I don't do reviews usually. I often go ignore them when the product is good but not great. I will review only if the item is amazing or horrible. Well this time is amazing! Our last dishwasher was outdated but only about 5 years old. Couldn't clean anything and was just loud. This one is quiet, very sleek looking and yes the finger prints don't show up. Great for our little ones who like to touch everything. Installing was a breeze and now for the best part. I don't care how caked on or crusted your pan is, it will clean. Within reason!! Don't throw a lasagna pan in there that has been sitting in the sink 3 weeks I mean be reasonable. However, I'd you just made brownies or a cake and the pan had been sitting a day crusted on, it will be spotless when remove. In the few months I have had this thing now, not a single dish has come out dirty. The auto cycle feature is great and the ways times are almost double my old unit but uses about the same amount of water maybe a little more but not much. I'll take longer cycle for never having to rewash another dish again.. No more scrubbing pans before loading. Use comon sense; rinse food off because its bad to have large food particles in there, don't pack the dishes so tight nothing can move and always read the owners manual for recommendations. Follow that and this will be the best dish washer under 500 you have ever seen. I promise!

    Doesn't work upon installation

    Posted

    • My Best Buy® MemberMember

    To start with, Best Buy promises to keep me informed, letting me know when my installation date would be through email and phone calls. Well, I never received an email (logging in to my account this morning finds that the dishwasher that was installed yesterday still needs to have the installation scheduled) and I got a voice mail last night with the details of my installation for yesterday morning. So what happens when Best Buy doesn't keep their promise to keep me informed? The installer was a nice guy, but he was having trouble getting the dishwasher to fit in the space due to a raised floor that made the opening troublesome. I kept asking him if we needed to take it out and just find a different dishwasher, but he promised it would fit and that all would be ok. The gasket around the outside of the opening is pretty mangled, but he assured me that this wouldn't be a problem. The biggest problem, however, is that the dishwasher doesn't work. It doesn't drain, and I can't run it since it won't even drain the inch of water sitting in the bottom. The installer told me it was working, so I signed off on it, since I obviously wasn't going to ask him to wait around while it ran for 90 minutes. So now I have a brand new dishwasher that I can't use sitting in place of the old, broken dishwasher that I couldn't use (no complaints about the haul-away service).

    I really like this dishwasher. This is the only model I could find with an all stainless tub at this price point. After comparing many models and price ranges, I did notice that the price on this one frequently goes up and down between $499 and $649 so if you decide on this model grab it when its $499! The dishes come out spotless and squeaky clean. If you use a drying agent with the heated dry, than yes, the drying is good, just a little water on the top rack on the mugs but this is to be expected. Many reviewers disliked the length of the cycles. If you select power blast, sanitize and heated dry- yes, the cycle is 4 hours and 37 minutes. BUT- wait! don't change your mind yet!- that is the longest option- you can choose a quick wash and heated dry and that is only 1 hour and 37 minutes- and there are many other options in between. I've used the quick wash with heated dry and the dishes were very clean and dry. I only use the longer options if the dishes are really greasy and the dishwasher is packed. If I turn it on right before going to bed the time isn't an issue.The interior tub is huge and making me super lazy! I've already put my greasy pots and pans in along with all the other dishes and everything came out squeaky clean:) ..oh, and they recommend the cascade drying agent but I used a cheapo brand from the dollar store and it worked great

    After purchasing our very first home, I was so excited to finally purchase a brand new dishwasher. I've never been more disappointed. I read all the reviews and it seems most were very happy with this dishwasher. That's not the case with me. I wish I had done more research (I've since read some articles that specifically review this product and they also say it doesn't clean well.)or spent some more money for a Bosch or Kitchen Aid. My 10+ year old Bosch dishwasher works better than this one. 75% of my dishes come out dirty and I have to hand wash anyway. I've tried all the troubleshooting tips I could read...even went as far as pulling it out and unhooking everything, checking all the hoses and drainage, cleaning any spray hole with a toothbrush. I don't have hard water, but played around with soap and rinse aid levels. Checked the water temp, it's hot. Played around with different cycles. Got out a level to make sure the machine was perfectly level. Nothing makes a difference, they still come out dirty.

    The Maytag dishwasher has proven to be a good choice in replacing my previous dishwasher which was a Kenmore. The Kenmore was a higher priced model than this one but I went with it based on reviews, the stainless steel interior, the cleaning ability, and the simple control panel operation. I have had the product for a few months now (June timeframe). Cleans as advertised and has a food grinder so a good washing is not really needed although I do rinse off big items. But it is just a quick rinse. Still quite dirty when put in. No issues with the cleaning. This may turn some people off. It does not have all the whiz bang control features as my previous Kenmore model had but I prefer this. Less to potentially break. I had the free installation as part of the holiday sale for my purchase. I recommend this as there is an additional part that needs put in with this model that you have to purchase. Ensure you have this part. Install was quick and easy and they hauled away the old one. For this price and the included installation and more importantly the performance so far...I recommend this product to others. It is also quiet. I did see someone else had problems with an odor. I had this same issue after the first few uses. It is gone now.

    I bought this to replace my current dishwasher from last century who decided to stop doing its one job...clean dishes. I installed this one according to directions and found it straightforward and easy. (My first time installing a dishwasher) Things to note: -Inside cavity holds alot of dishes and allows for pots and cookie sheets without getting stuck on top tray. -I find that it is very quiet when running and adore the easy button display. -It has sanitation that we need for newborn bottles. -The silverware basket holds alot and has slots for each individual piece for optimum cleaning -It cleans well and glasses come clean and clear as long as you use rinse aid. -Do not overfill otherwise it will not clean well. -Beautiful looking and no fingerprints. Overall, I love this dishwasher so far! Based on its current performance, I would definitely purchase a Maytag again.

    The title may be a little confusing. I love this dishwasher. It was leaking every fifth wash after one week. I even tried putting less dishes in. Nope. Finally had to call Maytag and told them the issue. There was a water leak on the bottom right of the dishwasher. They setup an appointment for a technician to come and check it out. The guy was great. He told me he's seen this in newer dishwashers. There's a rubber stopper (not sure of the exact word) that was causing the dishwasher to gather the water where the door is and caused the leak. After he changed the direction of those rubber stoppers had no issues since. We run the dishwasher almost every day and has been exactly what I was expecting when we got it. It's quiet and washed the dishes well. Definitely recommend this but make sure you check for a water leak and if you see it make sure you contact Maytag, they are excellent.

    So I did a lot of shopping around before I chose this dishwasher. I wanted a fully stainless model with a food chopper. This one was the best price with the best reviews. I’ve had it a few weeks and love it. I gave it the ultimate test, I made a plate of nachos and then left the plate sit out overnight with an inch of cheese glued to it. I put it in the dishwasher on normal setting and it came out spotless. It’s literally so quiet that I don’t even hear it running. My old model sounded like a truck driving through my kitchen. I also like the digital display that tells you how much time is left. My only complaint would be that the dishes don’t come out completely dry. That seems to be an issue with a lot of the new model dishwashers. I’m thinking it’s because of the energy efficiency guidelines. It’s not a huge deal, it’s not like they are sopping wet. I usually just run a load before I go to bed and then I pop the door open a bit before I leave for work in the morning and then by the time I get home, it’s all completely dry.

    I read many reviews and narrowed down my selection needs to be a stainless steel tub and {insert front color that matches other appliances}. I carefully went through every review of every other dishwasher and sorted out the usual 1s and 2s from people who got lemons or didn't understand life. This dishwasher won hands down. Then I looked on competitor's websites for other reviews and the same conclusion out there. It washes nice and quickly and is barely audible. I've had a few random dishes that are still dirty, but its more like because there were large amounts of sauce left on a plate or it was already crusty when I put it in. I really do like the fact that you can put two rows of normal plates in the bottom tray. I've used it with and without the heated dry and am very pleased in both cases. I normally just open the doors when it's done and let them air dry. I cannot think of any other negatives, it's just a great dishwasher! Plenty of space for plates and flatware. The delay feature is great as I can schedule it for when I'm sleeping and it won't wake you up, as it is way quieter than the water softener and the ice cube maker.

    Quite Dishwasher, but long cycles

    We have been using our Maytag dishwasher for about a month. We replaced a 11 year old Whirlpool because the wire drawers were disintegrating. The Maytag dishwasher is very quiet and we really enjoy this aspect. Our old dishwasher was not nearly as quiet. In addition, the majority of the dishes come out clean. However, I would say that there are two things about this dishwasher with which we are less happy. First, the silverware compartment for the Maytag is inside of the bottom drawer rather than the door. This reduces the number of items we can wash each time. There really is a noticeable difference in the way we can load dishes due to the placement of the silverware compartment. Second, the cycles for the Maytag (new) dishwasher are much longer than our old dishwasher. If we use high temperature water for a load, the "normal" cycle is just over 3 hours. If you use the sterilize mode, the "normal" cycle is just over 4 hours. Lastly, I'm not sure how energy efficient this dishwasher can be with such long washing cycles.

    Bad dishwasher

    We bought this dishwasher to replace a Kenmore we had. I have several complaints with this one. 1. It stinks. Literally, it smells bad all the time. It has a garbage disposal built in, so maybe that's why. When we open the door the smell pretty much knocks you down. 2. The heated dry function does not work! We use the heated dry every time we use it, yet the dishes come out completely wet. This may also be why it stinks so bad 3. The racks in this dishwasher are small and do not work well for washing bowls. We have 3 small children and have to mostly hand wash our bowls because they won't fit. Overall, I would pass on this dishwasher and by something else if you are looking. I am beyond disappointed in the performance of this dishwasher. It has some good reviews online and came highly recommended by several retailers. Perhaps we got a faulty model.
