Maytag brings you the MDB8959SB fully integrated dishwasher. This dishwasher comes with 15-place settings for you to wash many dishes in one load. It has 6 cycles, including JetClean plus steam cycle and 7 options with a ToughScrub plus option. This way you will be able to wash any dish no matter the type or how tough it is. It also has a 4-Blade hard food disposer and a 50 dBA sound level. This means that you won’t have to worry about those leftovers in the dish or the noise of the dishwasher when operating.


Jetclean® Plus Steam cycle
Cleans everything from your messiest pans to your finest stemware. High pressure spray jets and increased temperatures power off tough, stuck-on food while finishing steam helps clean and reduce spots on glassware.

4-Blade Stainless Steel Chopper
The 4-blade stainless steel chopper pulverizes food, preventing particles from plugging the wash system and spray jets. It provides optimal cleaning without the need to prerinse.

Industry's Most Powerful Motor Available
Strengthened by the industry's most powerful motor available, each cycle blasts away tough soils for clean dishes the first time.

Our quietest dishwashers ever at 50 dBA
Peace of mind meets peace and quiet with dependable dishwashers that are Maytag brand's quietest ever at 50 dBA.

Premium Rack Glides
A sturdier design uses ball bearings to glide in and out effortlessly—even when fully loaded.

Stainless Steel Interior
The 100% stainless steel tub not only looks great and resists corrosion, it also delivers premium drying performance by providing higher heat retention, drawing moisture away from dishes to help prevent spots on glassware and water drops on plastic containers.

10-year limited warranty on racks, stainless steel tub, and chopper
The nylon racks, stainless steel tub and chopper blade are all backed by a 10-year limited parts warranty* to ensure long-lasting performance.

Steam Sanitize option
This option sanitizes dishes with a high-temperature rinse that reduces 99.999% of food soil bacteria, then adds the finishing touch of steam.

Most spray jets in the Industry
To provide maximum cleaning coverage, these Maytag® dishwashers are equipped with the most spray jets in the industry.

Auto Clean Cycle
Gauges the soil level of the load, then automatically adjusts temperature, wash time and the number of fills accordingly. This helps achieve optimal cleaning without overusing resources.

Extra Dry
The Extra Dry option extends drying time 20 minutes for 20% better drying performance versus normal cycle with heated dry.

JetClean® Plus Wash System
Uses high-pressure spray jets to remove tough food particles. A stainless steel chopper blade pulverizes food, preventing particles from plugging the wash system and spray jets. The filtration system captures tiny food particles to prevent redistribution during the cycle for optimal cleaning without the need to prerinse.

Maytag MDB8959SBW Reviews & Ratings

Jetclean Plus MDB8959SBW 24" Built-In Dishwasher with Steam Sanitize Option, 50 dBA, Auto Clean Cycle, Extra Dry, JetClean Plus Wash System, and a ToughScrub Plus Option in White is rated 4.6581 out of 5 by 895.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Superb dishwasher at a modest cost I purchased this dishwasher to replace one inherited from the previous owners of my house. It cleans the dishes and glasses well, and does so in a relatively quiet and timely manner. The racks are great. They hold plates, glasses and bowls very securely. Moreover, they slide in and out very smoothly. The controls are easy to understand and use. One of the really neat features is the special bins that allow you to place silverware in narrow slots to hold the items upright and hence avoid the clutter that usually accompanies silverware in dishwashers. The dishwasher's appearance is also a big plus - beautiful stainless steel outside and in.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It's only missing a "put away" button We have had this dishwasher for 8 months, and it has been a great purchase. My husband, a medical professional, was able to install it himself in about an hour and it has worked perfectly ever since. It's so quiet that the kids often open it during a wash cycle thinking that it's not running, and our dishes always come out sparkling clean. It has many different options for washing and drying, but we only use regular and quick wash, and heated dry. One feature I really appreciate is the clips on the top rack for plastic lids - brilliant! We are a family of 7 and run 2-3 loads of dishes per day, and this machine handles it all with ease.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great buy I purchased this Maytag to replace a Bosch that leaked. I was afraid that next to my Bosch i'd be disappointed but this dishwasher has met or exceeded all my expectations so far. It is super quiet, and cleans very well even when i fill to capacity. I love the wine glass holder feature. It has a ton of space and i can finally put a spatula standing up in the utensil holder and it doesn't interrupt the spray arms with its adjustable upper rack. I haven't used all the cleaning levels but the couple i have clean perfectly. Negatives: It doesn't have a sound indicator when the cycle ends and it does seem to take a while to complete a cycle.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So quiet you wonder if it's on. When you start the dishwasher you would swear it's not running! I opened it the first time I started to see what was wrong and to my surise nothing it's that quiet. For cleaning ability best that I have ever used. no need to pre rinse, I once challenged it with breakfast plates with egg yolk on them and let them sit for three dat in the dishwasher before I started it and the came out clean. We put all of our wine glasses that hang and get dusty in their and they come out sparkly clean. It use very little water and cascade. The cycles do take a few hours but I always run it at night. There is a quick cycle if you need something faster. Two thumbs up.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super quiet and powerful cleaning We got this to replace an aging GE model. We chose this model based on Home Depot online reviews, and are very happy with it after 2 months. Pros: - clean, minimalist stainless steel face with controls hidden on top - very quiet - plenty of very effective cleaning cycle options - lots of useful pieces for securing various utensils and dishes inside Cons: - Having the controls completely hidden on top combined with the quiet cycle means sometimes you aren't entirely sure if the load is finished yet. - Stainless steel face looks gorgeous but is a fingerprint magnet - simply installing it resulted in smeared fingerprints everywhere.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It has great features. Other than how quiet it is, the first thing I noticed after using it the very first time was that my old flatwear looked new. I looked at the designs on the back & front & even compared to things still in the drawer thinking it couldn't be that obvious. I knew then that my dishes would be as clean as possible. The lay out of the baskets lets you make several different set ups depending upon what you need washed at any given time. The top rack being adjustable is a nice feature for oversized serving dishes & cookware. I am still spellbound at the sound level with every wash. I just love it. I couldn't wish for more in a dishwasher.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Dishwasher Leaks Dishwasher leaks. I have had 6 service calls to repair this machine and it still leaks and not 6 mo old. Machine was only 3 months old when I first noticed the leaking. After multiple service calls I had no dishwasher for Thanksgiving and now for Christmas. Repair tech was here today, made the repair, and the machine is leaking again. I had wanted to buy an American made product and I am so disappointed in Maytag. I thought the quality would be so much better. Based on the value of the warranty repairs, the cost of the repairs exceeds the cost of the machine. The machine needs to be replaced but they keep sending the techs back .

Rated 5 out of 5 by from EXCELLENT.. Blows away my 6 year old other brand dishwasher I am a HEAVY scrutinizer for appliances. The only con w/ this unit is that it comes with too many accessories to arrange cleaning utensils in the racks (which can be removed/ arranged according to your likings). This UNIT CLEANS DISHES; it has tons of room inside. Some have said that it is not the quietest... but, it IS absolutely VERY QUIET. It is WELL MADE from looking at all the parts before installation, and a delight to operate. Where my 6 year old dishwasher from another company acted more like a 'pre-rinsing machine,' this model/ manufacturer actually TOTALLY CLEANS my dishes even w/ out pre-rinsing in my sink. I'm glad I went w/ this company, and model.
