Maytag MDB8949SBW Reviews & Ratings

MDB8949SBW Jetclean Plus 24" Wide Built-In Dishwasher with ToughScrub, Quiet 50 dBA, Steam Sanitize Option, Stainless Steel Interior, 4-Blade Stainless Steel Chopper in White is rated 4.5612 out of 5 by 237.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Quiet but has design flaws We chose this Maytag dishwasher because we like our last one so much. Unfortunately the design of the racks were changed. In the manual it shows that you should be able to fit a row of bowls down the middle and two rows of glasses on the sides. This only works with our kid size bowls our normal size bowls fit but then you can't fit glasses next to them. The design on the bottom rack was improved. We also have a problem with the bottom rack not staying on the tracks. Not sure if this is a problem with ours or a design flaw. We love the stainless steel inside, it is so quiet and with two small boys that is very important to us.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Overall this is a great dishwasher Overall it's a great dishwasher. My only complaint and it's a minor one, is that the bottom basket's tines are spaced in a way that it's not as easy to load as my last dishwasher. I believe that the tines are placed too close together. The top basket adjustment is very nice allowing for larger items on either the bottom or the top depending on what you are washing. The capacity is average but features like the above mentioned top rack and the movable silverware baskets make it easier to accomodate larger items. Glasses come out sparkling clean. Quiet machine. Metal front door allows for attachment of clean/dirty magnet.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Quality made in America This does a good job. The controls allow for adjusting the wash from gentle to "tough scrub". It cleans dishes along with pots and pans, and leaves only the most difficult food - microwaved egg, burnt grease/oil - stuff that truly can only be removed by an actual physical scrubbing with dish cloth or steel wool. The second spray arm for the upper tray makes sure the dishes on top get as clean as those on the bottom. The upper tray is shallow at one side to make room for large items in the lower level, and deeper on the other side to allow tall glasses to be put on top. There are fittings for holding stemware and other delicate items. It's a well-thought out machine.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Saving water still does a great job If you read the manual you will find out which settings save water and energy compared to the others. We choose to use the light setting and it works great, but we, out of habit, continue to rinse our dishes. Although, there are only two of us, so we are not running it every day. Our first dishwasher was not fantastic, but the sound difference is amazing! Basically, unless you have placed something in a bad place because you are trying to get too many things in, you won't even know it is running! I was hesitant about the design of the racks prior to purchase and for the first few washes, but it doesn't take long to figure out how to load it efficiently. Great dishwasher!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best dishwasher I've ever owned!! We purchased our new Maytag dishwasher in February and without a doubt it is the very best dishwasher I've ever owned (even better than the Maytag I had when I lived up North)! I can use the light cycle with dishes that have been scraped, but not rinsed, and they come out sparkling clean. I don't even need to use the heated dry. Gone are the days when I had to use the dishwasher during the night to avoid the noise. Sopmetimes, I need to put my ear to the machine to make sure it is running. On a scale of 1-10, with 10 being the best, my Maytag gets a 15!!! There are not enough superlatives to describe my Maytag.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality Plus feaatures makes this one to notch appliance The initial impression when looking at a dishwasher is a sleek face panel dsign that will blend in with your other kitchen appliances. But look again at Maytag to discover the difference. As our soap detergents have become more environmently friendly Maytag has given us the features to still get the job done.Maytag has built in cycles to combat the dried on dirt and grime to ensure you're going to get a deep cleaning and give you peace of mind that your dirty dishes will come out spotless and dirt free. Maytag products are designed to last and perform at the top of their class. You can trust Maytag.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Sleek and hardworking I am very happy with my dishwasher. I love the adjustable top rack, which allows room for taller items along the lower left rack. Or, in reverse, it will allow for taller glassware or dishes in the top rack. Stainless interior really allows for a speedy and thorough dry time. Interior stays nice and hot for hours after the cycle is done. I like the buttons on the front rather than in the door, but that's a matter of preference. Dishes are very clean, even without doing more than scraping the big chunks off first and this dishwasher is so QUIET my husband is sometimes doubtful that it's running.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This dishwasher cleans better than any we have ever had. We've owned Maytag appliances for years, and this new dishwasher may be the best yet. We're pretty fussy about having sparkling clean dishes and glassware, and that's just what we get every time we use our new Maytag. We use it in combination with the recommended Cascade Platinum packets, and the results are great. It's also very quiet. We often don't realize that it's running. We can load lots and lots of dishes, eating utensils, and cookware because of the flexible set-up for the loading racks. We actually believe that everything we wash is looking better with each washing.
