Product Reviews
Rated 4.5 out of 5 by 83 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by A great dishwasher at a very reasonable price. This dishwasher meets all my needs and more! It loads easily and does an excellent job washing, cleaning, and sanitizing. It is almost too quiet when running. It is simple to operate and functions flawlessly. I am very satisfied with this machine and hope it runs forever! I could not have gotten a better machine for twice the price! I would not hesitate to buy it again. 9/18/12

Rated 4 out of 5 by Seems like a good choice Installed yesterday, Previous few modles got a good review, Thought choice was right. So far it washes good, seems quiet enough.Like the style, Hope it continues to bring many years of happiness.Maytag, Supposidly has great durability.... 4/14/12
Rated 5 out of 5 by The best cleaning dishwasher we have ever owned This new unit is far beteter than our older dishwasher, which was a mMaytag, also. Dishes & glassware come out really sparkling. However, the cycle selection bar on the door is SO SMALL that it is almost impossible to know what cycle you are trying to select. WE chose a blace unit, and the different cycles cannot be easily indentified. They do not light up so the operator can read what he/she is trying to select. Only a "jewel" will light up to note the cycle item selection. 10/6/12
