Summary: Control Panel died after 2 years, repair cost is more than initial cost. Apparently steam vents into control panel causing short circuits, so it will be a recurring problem. This thing is going straight to landfill. American manufacturing does not make up for garbage design. DO NOT BUY MAYTAG!
Summary: Our Maytag Dishwasher lasted 1 year 3.5 months then died. We only used it about once a week. Maytag/Whirlpool would do nothing on the warranty. The Kenmore this dishwasher replaced ran in this house for 20 years. My advice is to stay away from this brand altogether.
Summary: Unit is much quieter than I thought, compared to our old Whirlpool that only lasted 7 years. Has no insulation blanket around it. Installed it myself in 1 hour. We bought the white unit on sale for $299. Cleans very well. What sold me was the 'Built in USA' sticker on the front. Thank you Maytag.
Summary: I purchased this machine a year and 10 months ago in January 2010. A few months ago the control panel started to only light up partially but the washing machine continued to run. A few days ago when i tried to turn on the machine it would not work - the control panel was no longer lighting up.
Summary: Maytag used to be the BEST name in appliances, but it is now just another ho-hum appliance. Our dishwasher just out of warranty, first had a recall, don't use as it could catch on fire" so we had them install a new heating element (no charge).
