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.

MDB8979SFZ 24" Energy Star Built In Dishwasher with PowerDry Option, PowerBlast Cycle, 4 Blade Stainless Steel Chopper and Stainless Steel Tub, in Fingerprint Resistant Stainless Steel is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 9.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Looks Good - Works Better Than Good Bought this model to replace my MDB7600 which I purchased in December of 2004. Never a problem with the old machine, until my top rack required replacement. Made sense to just replace given the price of a new top rack! I was a bit unhappy until I used the new machine. It is easy to use, and does a great job -everything comes out sparkling! All of my home appliances are Maytag - and they have all served me well. I would also add that I have bought all my appliances directly from the local Maytag store - where I always receive outstanding service from purchase to replacement. My Maytag team is the best! My new dishwasher has only been in my home for a week - but I expect this one to be as reliable as my last one! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Leaking all over my floor after just six months I bought my dishwasher six months ago, and it worked wonderfully. Then 3 weeks ago, it started leaking all over my floor. Maytag's repair contractor took 4 days to come look at it the first time, then 7 days the second time. It's still not working, so I'm stuck walking all my baby's bottles by hand while I wait for Maytag to care enough to fix or replace it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Stylish, Good Performer I acquired this model to replace a Maytag dishwasher, model MDB8969, that was less than a year old. Unfortunately I had experienced a number of issues with my former Maytag. I had warranty service personnel visit my home on numerous (6) occasions and they repeatedly made unsuccessful efforts to repair the unit. I then decided it was time to replace the unit. I removed the former unit and installed the new dishwasher myself, the process went smoothly. However upon starting the new unit, model MDB8979, I noted that the cycle indicator light was malfunctioning. The light remained green throughout the entire cycle, rather than glow blue for wash, red for dry, and green for complete. This required me to contact Maytag Customer Service, "Once Again" for service! A service appointment has been scheduled and hopefully it can be resolved with in a single visit. I also noted one other minor defect, the Maytag nameplate on the bottom of the dishwasher was crooked as it had not been applied correctly at the assembly plant. Customer Service ordered a replacement and had it mailed to me. The unit is quiet and does a good job both cleaning and drying. I like the units new handle, the fingerprint resistance finish is a plus and the upper rack, with the ball bearings, operates very smoothly. If it had not been for the indicator light and name plate issues I would have given the unit Five Stars. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Dishwasher I've had this Dishwasher for about a week now and the first thing I noticed is how quiet it is when it's running, cleans the dishes very well. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best dishwasher out there! We had this dishwasher in our first house. When we moved the first thing we did is replace the dishwasher with the exact same one we had in the first house. It is so quit, we don't even realise it is running. Best one out there.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Washing Moved into our new house about 3 weeks ago. Love the dishwasher but especially love the cutlery holder as you can pull it out and set it on the counter to empty it. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
