Product Reviews
Rated 4.6 out of 5 by 54 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by This product has great wash cycles, Rinse only ,Steam option,Sanitizer, Spoon blaster, Food Grinder Was kind of unsure of dishwasher feature when brought. But was very surprised that all the feature work wonderful. Wash cycle cleans on first wash never had to wash dishes twice. I found that if I use the steam cycle with burned on food in pot or pans and put ceramic grill rack off of gas grill and use steam cycle after use looses up burned on foods. Food grinder grinds up all food particle. Left on residual food just comes off very easily with a soapy scotch pad. I then put them back in on the heavy wash cycle they come out very clean. I love the sanitizer cycle and the spoon blaster just melts away the stuck on food on the silverware. I put the disherwasher to my test. I cannot and would not do without this dishwasher. Glad I purschased it and would reccommend it to anyone needing a great dishwasher .Outside cleans very easily. MAYTAG GREAT INVENTION on this one. 10/20/11
Rated 5 out of 5 by Good quality I've had this dishwasher for over a year now. It was the most expensive Maytag offered at the time and I was more than a little hesitant spending so much on a dishwasher. Even the the salesperson at the home improvement store thought it was a bit pricey and suggested I go with a cheaper model. But that model didn't have all of the features that I wanted. At the end of the day I decided to go with what my heart wanted and I'm glad I did. It looks beautiful in my outdated (LOL) kitchen. I can't wait to see how goregous it will look when I get around to remodeling. It performs better than I expected. I've ALWAYS pre washed my dishes but not any more. I have only had one item in the past year that didn't get 100% clean without a prewash and I think that happened because of the way I loaded it, not becase of the machine. It was hard to break the prewash habit at first, but once I did I never looked back. :>) Its only been 1 year 7 months, but no mechancial problems, knock on wood. Also I haven't had any chipped or broken dishes. Take time to read the manual on proper loading and such, that helps alot. I really like that it has a place to lay long utensils on top and on bottom, and that you can move the top basket up and down to accomodate taller objects. The cycles take longer than my older dishwasher, but everything comes out so sparkly clean until I don't care. Its very quiet, my kitchen is partially open to my living room and I can barely hear it, especially if the tv is on, then I don't hear unless its pouring water into the unit. If you can afford the extra dollars its worth the upgrade. 12/23/11
Rated 4 out of 5 by Large capacity and a wide range of options This model has a very clean, modern looking exterior with a stainless interior. It holds a great deal of items in many different configurations. I like that the top rack can be lowered or elevated, based on glasswear height. It has a wide range of settings and special features, such as sanitize mode. Cons: 1) not very quiet...not much quieter than our old washer. 2) Plastic shelves seem a bit flimsy, but have held up so far (have owned the washer for approximately 6 months) 3) It does not do well with hard water. You will need to set the rinse aid settings higher and occasionally run a vinegar load, otherwise your dishes and glasses will be coated with white residue. 4) The buttons are on top of the sure you have proper counter clearance before buying! Ours JUST fits, so we have to press the buttons first and then shut the door. 10/22/11
Rated 5 out of 5 by Good overall and very quiet The dishwasher does a good job cleaning the dishes. Compared to the previous dishwasher we had it is amazingly quiet. It is a little hard to place plates in the bottom without them laying against each other, but if they are put in just right it works, but doesn't maximize the usage of the bottom. The silverware doesn't always get rinsed completely on the bottom side, they are clean, they just don't seem to be completely rinsed. 10/27/11
