Maytag
This quiet Maytag MDB8979SEZ-SS dishwasher has all the cleaning power of Maytag without the ruckus, including the new PowerDry option that boosts drying power for completely dry dishes every time. It's Better Built with the most powerful motor on the market and a 4-blade stainless steel chopper to chew up food scraps and rinse them away with the PowerBlast™ cycle. Maytag built this large-capacity dishwasher with tough stainless steel in the tub, spray arm and silverware basket, and even added a Fingerprint Resistant Stainless Steel exterior so it stays sparkling. Then they made it their quietest dishwasher ever at only 47 dBa, even quieter than coffee brewing. This large-capacity dishwasher is also backed with a 10-year limited parts warranty, and it's assembled in Findlay, Ohio, with American pride.

HAS BEEN A CONSTANT PROBLEM

By Chuck Lamdin

from Timonium, Maryland

Verified Buyer

Comments about Maytag Built-In Dishwasher:

Was delivered and installed in early April 2017 and immediately a considerable amount of water was leaking from the door and it stopped several times during the wash cycle. After a month, the dealer replaced the dishwasher with a new one but it started to do the same thing. This is a design problem that is not new, but Maytag doesn't do anything to fix it.

Great design and quiet!

Comments about Maytag Built-In Dishwasher:

I've had this unit for about two months. It's quiet and has excellent organization for all your dishes. Lots of ways to move around the racks. The sprayer design is excellent, making the dishes much cleaner than my previous dishwasher!

Great features

By Dazed

from Boston

Verified Buyer

Comments about Maytag Built-In Dishwasher:

We purchased our dishwasher a month ago and are very pleased with the great, thorough job on spotlessly wash and dry cycles. Love the adjustable racks and utensil holder allowing individual "holes" separating utensils. It is quiet and we like the lean lines of design. One design flaw, the plastic cover to the controls has a very sharp edge which scrapes my knuckles closing the door. Have learned to use only handle.

Very Bad Product and Poor Service

By Chuck Lamdin

from Cockeysville, Maryland

Comments about Maytag Built-In Dishwasher:

I purchased this dishwasher 2 months ago and I started having trouble 3 days after purchase with stopping several times during the wash cycle and water leaking out the bottom of the door. You finally replaced the dishwasher with the same model and had the same problem after 2 weeks. Now waiting for a repairman to show up. This is the worst purchase I have ever made and Maytag has not lived up to its reputation and is not facing up to the fact that there is something wrong with the model I purchased. I want this dishwasher replaced with a different model.

Works well, very quiet. Just wished it worked quicker, even the quick cycle takes about an hour.

TERRIBLE

By Tori

from Madison, WI

Comments about Maytag Built-In Dishwasher:

Originally purchased in Feb 2017. Started leaking and we called for service. They fixed something with the top rack, figuring that to be the issue (wasn't allowing door to seal completely?). Shortly after that it started leaking again. Early May our retailer graciously exchanged it for the same one (perhaps we got a "lemon"). Within a week, the same thing started happening AGAIN! We went with Maytag because of its reported reliability HOWEVER, there is now permanent water damage to our cabinets and we may be stuck with this product that clearly has issues. I have now read several reviews of people experiencing the same thing. WHAT IS MAYTAG GOING TO DO TO FIX THIS??

Comments about Maytag Built-In Dishwasher:

We have used our new dishwasher for over a month now and we can confidently say that we made a great purchase. It is quiet, efficient, easy to load and unload. And best easy to clean because of fingerprint resistant finish.

Highly Recommended

By FranOK

from Beaufort, SC

Verified Buyer

Comments about Maytag Built-In Dishwasher:

We purchased another brand and during installation realized we made a big mistake. The assembly was terrible, door rattled, dishes did not dry and had to be replaced. I had never purchased a Maytag and did not know what to expect but for sure the door was solid and that's one of the reasons I bought it. Well to our great surprise it has been the best experience we have had with a dishwasher and we have owned a KitchenAid, Bosch and Whirlpool. No comparison hands down Maytag wins. It's quiet (we have to put our ear next to the door sometimes if we forget we turned it on), the dishes come out clean and DRY. No more wiping! And while it was more expensive than some models I would highly recommend spending more to get more and the best and I'm telling my daughter when it's time to replace hers - get a Maytag. Oh and I forgot it doesn't confuse me with 20 different ways to use the dishwasher.
