Dishes clean and dry and love the look!
5 Star Review   By Loroula on Home Depot - Jun 11, 2013   

I have all Maytag appliances and continue to love the product and the look. Service installation from Home Depot was top notch as well. Definitely recommend dishwasher made in America and Home Depot's excellent service.

5 Star Review   By wolfjack on Home Depot - May 31, 2013   

Love this dishwasher so far. Silent operation was not high on my list because I wanted a dishwasher that ground up the food particles (didn't want to manually clean a filter). That said, this machine is quiet. I sit 5 feet from the machine while it runs, and I can hear my TV that is about 10 feet away from me, with no problem at all. Some things I love: Love the smooth operation of the door and that it stops/stays open at any angle I want. Love the smooth glide of the shelves. Love the utensil baskets (top and bottom shelf). Love that dishes come very clean, with minimal rinsing beforehand. Love that everything is basically fully dry at the end of cycle (except deep crevices that wouldn't be dry in any machine). Love the shiny glasses (the rinse-aid may help with that). Love that it looks stylish from the outside. Basically there is nothing I don't love. I strongly considered the Bosch but didn't like the way the tines were close together and the tub size seemed skimpy. This Maytag is large capacity and the tines are spaced well and adjustable enough for my needs. If I have to think of one complaint it would be that my usual stainless steel cleaner isn't working well; the stainless looks streaky. Hope I can figure out how to fix that. Otherwise, A+.

HANDSDOWN ONE OF THE BEST DISHWASHER AROUND.
5 Star Review   By Hari on Home Depot - May 30, 2013   

I was skeptical about this model, because I saw few repeated reviews (maytag sponsored) in all 3 sites , home depot , lowes and sears. But I took a leap of faith based on few genuine buyers reviews. So far they are spot on ,its quite ,well built looks great. And the main WOW factor is how clean dishes comes out. Things we have tried so far 1) Dishes with hard food particles 2) Greasy dishes 3) Drinkwares and Silverwares we loaded all of 'em without any pre-rinse. Dishwasher blew us away with the performance. Definitely this a good buy.

Takes everything you can throw into it, and quietly laughs the stuff clean!!
5 Star Review   By SteveB on Home Depot - May 25, 2013   

This dishwasher is truly just that, a washer of dishes...quietly and powerfully hums its way through baked on, caked on...anything and everything!!! Glassware sparkles like new!! Everything gets dry, just put it on auto clean, and it does the rest!! And the stainless steel tub gets as clean and stays as new looking as the dishes you put into it!! What a great choice, worth every penny!!

Very quiet
5 Star Review   By Daltonmo on Home Depot - May 17, 2013   

In addition to being nice looking and doing a good job cleaning, this is the quietest dishwasher I have ever heard. From 5 feet away you can barely tell that it is working.

Beware if you live in Maryland and order a dishwasher
3 Star Review   By alsz on Home Depot - May 14, 2013   

We haven't had the product installed long enough to tell, but so far, no major complaints on the machine itself. The installation process was another story.

Best decision
5 Star Review   By QueenOfLaVerne on Home Depot - May 13, 2013   

After reading the positive reviews on this dishwasher, we purchased one at our local Home Depot. I could not be happier! This is by far the best peforming performing we've ever owned. I always had to practically wash the dishes before putting them in our previous dishwasher (also a Maytag), and they still would not come out clean. Now I can fill it with dishes with food still on them and not worry - they all come out clean and shiny. One of the many things that I love about this dishwsher is that all the plastic cups and glasses come out DRY. Now I can empty the dishwasher without a dish towel in hand to dry the insides of the plastic glasses. The other reviews detail all the specifics of the features of this Maytag, and it has many features that make it worth the slightly higher price. If you are considering a lower-priced dishwasher, (as I was), please go ahead and spend a few more dollars - you will be glad you did. (Did I mention how shiny the glassware is? While I was in Home Depot and completing the paperwok to buy this Maytag, the salesman walked me through the store to the cashier to compete the purchase. As we passed through the cleaning products aisle, he introduced me to a product called Lemi Shine and suggested I add that to my usual dishwashing detergent. He said he had been using it for years and it it made his glassware shine. Well, I took his advice and now, between the great dishwasher and Lemi Shine, I actually enjoy emptying the dishwasher just to check out my shiny glasses!!!)

Excellent Dishwasher with the all the top features
5 Star Review   By Nick on Home Depot - May 5, 2013   

This dishwasher was a great buy. We've been through 4 dishwashwers and this is hands down the best so far. After reading the reviews from others and then knowing this machine was made in the USA, it was the one we chose. We've had the Maytag now for 1 month and there are absolutely no regrets. The cleaning is superior to the others we've owned and the machine is so quiet that most of the time you can't tell its running. You never know what's down the road with the electronics part but to date I can highly reccomend this model and brand.

Excellent Unit

Pricey but oh so worth it!
5 Star Review   By McQuilter on Home Depot - Apr 17, 2013   

I had purchased a high end dishwasher (kitchenaide) 3 years ago and hated it - you had to wash the dishes before putting them in the dishwasher, it was awful. I purchased this being skeptical and hoping for the best and it did not disappoint. The dishwasher works great (it does take a long time but if you run it at night, who cares!) I have had a few times where there is still a bit of water on the dishes after the cycle is done but it's no big deal. I haven't tried all the different cycles but have used the light load and the "sense when clean" cycle. Very quiet and sleek looking.

Good washer for the price
5 Star Review   By JCJC on Home Depot - Apr 17, 2013   

The steam cycle seems to work really well. Compared to my previous Dish Washer it is super quiet and for a much cheaper price. Our kitchen is next to the living room and there have been a few times that I heard what I thought was the faint sound of dripping water and went in to investigate only to find it was the washer whispering away. Happy with the purchase.

Love our new dishwasher!!!
5 Star Review   By Tata on Home Depot - Apr 16, 2013   

We really have no complaints about this product but we only have been using it for about a month now. I love the smooth slide of the top drawer. I now understand what other posters meant. This unit is really very quiet that you have to check the lights before opening it. The lights are at the top so you may not want the unit flushed into the cabinets. My husband did the install and to no fault of his, there was a leak coming from the middle section of the unit. Called Home Depot and they gave me Maytag number. Maytag had the unit service and the guy fixed it in less than 15 minutes. He pulled a tube out, applied some seal and reconnected the tube and its like no leak happened. Maytag also asked if our floor was damaged and it was not because we have tiles. Love, love this dishwasher - we hope that it will lasts long.

How come I waited so long to get a dishwasher that cleans the dishes??
5 Star Review   By Jennifer on Home Depot - Apr 16, 2013   

The dishes are so clean!!! The machine is very quiet and I am so happy with this dishwasher so far. I've had it about 3 weeks and it is lots bigger than my old Thermador (which was a horrible product despite the fancy name brand!) I would definitely recommend this unit.

Great unit so far.
5 Star Review   By jmt359 on Home Depot - Mar 19, 2013   

Lets just start that we are very pleased with this unit. It deliveres great clean results and dry dishes. We recently replaced higher end LG unit ($900.) with this one and couldnt be more happier. The LG altough it had more features it did not deliver clean and dry dishes from day one not to mention the bad odor we could not get rid of regardles of what solution we used to clean it. Finally after just 4 years of service it failled and and the repair bill would have been $535. and stil still have a smelly dishwasher. This Maytag does the job very well. Its quiet, cleans very well, offers a heated dry option and my wife is happier than ever. ( that makes me happy lol).

Good Value - Fine Dishwasher!
5 Star Review   By BaltoHome on Home Depot - Mar 12, 2013   

This is, by far, the best dishwasher we have ever owned! Like many others, we considered a higher priced American designed and made dishwasher and the German designed competitor before making up our minds. We feel we made the right decision! Our favorite features include: -very smooth-gliding and sturdy top rack (ball bearings) -quick and easy thumb control to raise/lower top rack -all stainless tub (quieter and better drying) -movable silverware holders, cut-outs for separating pieces -bottom rear tines fold down for large items on lower rack -top rack has stemware holders and holding clips -extra removable small basket at back of top rack -plenty of settings (auto clean, steam, tough scrub, jet clean) -light (china/crystal) and quick wash (in a hurry) settings -no steam vent on top to cause condensation under counter -simple, uncluttered front design -quiet running (50dBA) -2/4/8 hour delay settings -excellent drying (no wet dishes) using extra dry setting -large capacity (15 place settings) I am so glad we decided to go with this particular dishwasher, for several reasons: 1) Cost--at least 1/3 less than the German competitor 2) Heated drying vs. air dry. Our neighbors love their German designed dishwasher, but we use more plastic containers, and we want them dry, not damp. Their air dry system doesn't dry plastic (top shelf) as well as this model does with its heating element. 3) SS chopper pulverizes food particles and doesn't require additional cleaning. It makes for a slightly noisier dishwasher, but this thing is by far the quietest we have ever had. 4) Uses just a bit more water than some, but really gets dishes completely clean, every time. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend this exact model dishwasher. It has most of the features of the highest priced American made dishwasher brand, and in fact, shares many of the same parts, for a lower cost. For us it is the best product available at this price point. We have no complaints.
