(Why don't we show the price?)

Retailers have the legal right to set their own prices, but some manufacturers place restrictions on how those prices may be communicated. Because our price on this item is lower than the manufacturer's “minimum advertised price,” the manufacturer does not allow us to show you our price until you place the item in your cart, or in some cases, proceeding to the final checkout stage. Taking these steps allows Appliances Connection to show you our price consistent with our goal of always offering you the lowest possible prices on the widest selection of products. You are not required to purchase the product to see our lowest price, simply just remove it from your cart.

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 market2* 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 warranty31** that means these dishwashers are built for the long haul.

PowerDry Option
The PowerDry option decreases humidity in the tub and dries your dishes 50% better without using rinse aid.

PowerBlast™ Cycle
The PowerBlast™ cycle removes stuck-on food with high pressure spray jets, increased temperature and hot steam to finish the job.

Most Powerful Motor on the Market
Maytag® dishwashers feature the most powerful motor on the market2. Powerful enough to handle dried-on egg yolk and peanut butter without prerinsing, this motor can handle your dirtiest dishes.

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.

Fingerprint Resistant Stainless Steel Exterior
The easy-to-clean, Fingerprint Resistant Stainless Steel exterior keeps your dishwasher looking as good on the outside as it works on the inside.

Industry-Exclusive Stainless Steel Silverware Basket
Our industry-exclusive stainless steel silverware basket is built tough to handle whatever you throw at it.

2X Life Tested Motor
Our 2X Life tested motor is built to last and tested to prove it. Twice life testing based on accelerated 20-year life testing, normal cycle, average use.

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.

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

10-Year Limited Parts Warranty31 on the Racks, Chopper Blade and Stainless Steel Tub
Maytag® dishwashers are covered by a 10-year limited parts warranty31 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.

HAS BEEN A CONSTANT PROBLEM

By  from Timonium, Maryland  Verified Owner
Overall Rating: ☆☆☆☆☆ ★★★★★ 1

Was delivered and installed in early April 2017 and immediately a considerable amount of water was leaking from the door and it stopped several times during the wash cycle. After a month, the dealer replaced the dishwasher with a new one but it started to do the same thing. This is a design problem that is not new, but Maytag doesn't do anything to fix it.

Great design and quiet!

By  from Nashville  Verified Owner
Overall Rating: ☆☆☆☆☆ ★★★★★ 5

Recommended Product:

I've had this unit for about two months. It's quiet and has excellent organization for all your dishes. Lots of ways to move around the racks. The sprayer design is excellent, making the dishes much cleaner than my previous dishwasher! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Great features

By  from Boston  Verified Owner
Overall Rating: ☆☆☆☆☆ ★★★★★ 4

Recommended Product:

We purchased our dishwasher a month ago and are very pleased with the great, thorough job on spotlessly wash and dry cycles. Love the adjustable racks and utensil holder allowing individual "holes" separating utensils. It is quiet and we like the lean lines of design. One design flaw, the plastic cover to the controls has a very sharp edge which scrapes my knuckles closing the door. Have learned to use only handle.

Very Bad Product and Poor Service

By  from Cockeysville, Maryland  Verified Owner
Overall Rating: ☆☆☆☆☆ ★★★★★ 1

I purchased this dishwasher 2 months ago and I started having trouble 3 days after purchase with stopping several times during the wash cycle and water leaking out the bottom of the door. You finally replaced the dishwasher with the same model and had the same problem after 2 weeks. Now waiting for a repairman to show up. This is the worst purchase I have ever made and Maytag has not lived up to its reputation and is not facing up to the fact that there is something wrong with the model I purchased. I want this dishwasher replaced with a different model.

Works well, very quiet. Just wished it worked quicker, even the quick cycle takes about an hour. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

TERRIBLE

By  from Madison, WI  Verified Owner
Overall Rating: ☆☆☆☆☆ ★★★★★ 1

Originally purchased in Feb 2017. Started leaking and we called for service. They fixed something with the top rack, figuring that to be the issue (wasn't allowing door to seal completely?). Shortly after that it started leaking again. Early May our retailer graciously exchanged it for the same one (perhaps we got a "lemon"). Within a week, the same thing started happening AGAIN! We went with Maytag because of its reported reliability HOWEVER, there is now permanent water damage to our cabinets and we may be stuck with this product that clearly has issues. I have now read several reviews of people experiencing the same thing. WHAT IS MAYTAG GOING TO DO TO FIX THIS??

Great dishwasher

By  from San Antonio, Texas, United States  Verified Owner
Overall Rating: ☆☆☆☆☆ ★★★★★ 5

Recommended Product:

Even when our hot water heater died, this dishwasher heated the water to the temperature needed to wash and dry our dishes! Love the flatware basket, and it even dries our plastic containers without melting them. Much better unit than our old Bosch!

Couldn't be happier.

By  from Ohio  Verified Owner
Overall Rating: ☆☆☆☆☆ ★★★★★ 5

Recommended Product:

We have used our new dishwasher for over a month now and we can confidently say that we made a great purchase. It is quiet, efficient, easy to load and unload. And best easy to clean because of fingerprint resistant finish. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Highly Recommended

By  from Beaufort, SC  Verified Owner
Overall Rating: ☆☆☆☆☆ ★★★★★ 5

Recommended Product:

We purchased another brand and during installation realized we made a big mistake. The assembly was terrible, door rattled, dishes did not dry and had to be replaced. I had never purchased a Maytag and did not know what to expect but for sure the door was solid and that's one of the reasons I bought it. Well to our great surprise it has been the best experience we have had with a dishwasher and we have owned a KitchenAid, Bosch and Whirlpool. No comparison hands down Maytag wins. It's quiet (we have to put our ear next to the door sometimes if we forget we turned it on), the dishes come out clean and DRY. No more wiping! And while it was more expensive than some models I would highly recommend spending more to get more and the best and I'm telling my daughter when it's time to replace hers - get a Maytag. Oh and I forgot it doesn't confuse me with 20 different ways to use the dishwasher. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
