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.

Designed, Engineered and Assembled in the USA
From Ohio to you, every Maytag® dishwasher is designed, engineered and assembled in the U.S.A.

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.

Premium Dark Duraguard® Nylon Racks
These heavy-duty racks protect dishes from scratches and damage while also resisting rust.

ENERGY STAR® qualified
ENERGY STAR® qualified dishwashers use less water and energy than standard models helping to save money on utility bills.

Split & Fit™ silverware basket
The silverware basket can be divided into two halves and placed in various locations in the lower rack to accommodate almost any loading situation.

ToughScrub™ Plus option
Maintains or raises the temperature to 156°F, increases wash time and incorporates steam as an added attack against difficult food soils.

Oversize Capacity Plus Tall Tub
The oversized tub provides enough capacity to clean tall and large items like cookie sheets, pitchers and mixing bowls.

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 4.5833 out of 5 by 24.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Still learning... I purchased the Maytag approximately six months ago. I feel like I am still learning the best settings to get the dishes clean. I have to say, I am less than thrilled with this appliance. I don't by any means have huge dish loads, and things like silverware and glasses just don't always come out clean. I have read tips and tricks to placing the silverware and still no luck. Also, the bottom rack drops off it's track if it is not pulled out directly from the front. I am not digg'n it. :(

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Maytag/America (top of the line) Dishwasher We bought our Maytag approximately 4months ago and never looked back! It's so quiet I don't even know it's on; this is especially great because we have an open concept living plan As well from the day my husband installed it; that was the day I stopped loading and operating the dishwasher. He's taken it right over; it's so user friendly it's a delight to handle! If I'd have known then what I know now we would have purchased one years ago!! Kudos to the designing team

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful cleaner! I love this dishwasher. It cleans far better than my sister's, which cost almost three times as much. It is quiet. (My only problem is that the top rack keeps rolling out while I am trying to load the bottom rack, which is very annoying. But that may be my floor. But, in any case I can't figure out how to correct it. I work really hard to load the top rack from the back with heavy items in the back to keep it in place.)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Cleaning Machine! I have never had a dishwasher that did as good a job as this one. It's incredible! I have really put it to the test with extremely dirty dishes that I did not rinse. It even cleaned off dried, fried egg. This has really cut down on the time it takes to do dishes for my family of 7. It is also the quietest dishwasher I have ever owned.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Cleans Well! I do like how it washes. Some washes seem to be a bit long. I thought I would love the handle to hang a towel on. It is ok, but I open it and the towel hits the floor and just gets dirty. The most frustating part is the handle sticks out. I have a drawer next to it that I can not open without opening the dishwasher.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really like I bought this 3 months ago and like it. I had a Maytag for several years prior and really like that one. I would have kept it, but the racks broke. I think my only issue is loading stuff. I think it is so advanced that I don't know how to load it properly - which is my issue. It does fill a lot which is great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from so quiet you don't even know it's running...Only way I know an excellent appliance....We love it. American made is another big plus. In the future we will check w/Maytag first before purchasing any major appliances. We also have a Maytag under the counter microwave oven that we are equally pleased with. Keep producing quality appliances. Thank you Maytag!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super quiet! Had a few dishwashers over the years this is the quietest one ever had. When you run it you have to be next to it to know it is even running. It gets the dishes super clean and have had no problems with it drying them. Lots of room to put things and like the adjustable racks.
