Clean dishes begin with better parts. And with a motor that's tested to twice the average dishwasher life expectancy, the Maytag MDB4409PAS is an Energy Star qualified dishwasher you can count on. But it's more than just dependable because it gets up to 10 place settings sparkling clean. There's a durable 4-blade stainless steel chopper that pulverizes food to prevent specks on dishes. The JetClean Plus wash system uses high-pressure jets to remove tough food particles. Plus, the High Temperature Wash option brings the heat to deliver even greater cleaning performance.
