Summary: I would not recommend this dishwasher to anyone, I have had mine for 2 years and have had to replace the console twice now and it is working on having to be replaced yet again and the last time was 9 months ago. Guess what not going to replace part going to replace the entire dishwasher and it will nt be a Maytag!
Summary: Worth mentioning: When I called the customer service line and left a message of requesting a specific time for delivery, I got reply almost immediately that confirmed the delivery time. The timely reply really made me feel relaxed, especially an internet order and delivery from New York to California.
Summary: 11/01/08 update:
twice in the past month this unit has been serviced. Small particals of food were clogging the unti so it wasn't recycling the water back to the jets. the service man (not certified by Maytag) said that many dishwashers have this problem, so now I do a better job of scraping plates, I still don't rinse.
We chose our Maytag Quiet Series for practical reasons, the color and size that we needed was in-stock.
Summary: I love the way it looks and it has performed really well so far, with one exception. We have only had this product for a few weeks, and the electronic panel has already gone out. The only button that works is the "Select Cycle" button, all the rest are out. We have to have a Maytag repairman come out and fix it now. Kind of annoying for a brand new dishwasher.
Summary: This dishwasher does a good job of cleaning but it's not worth the money. It is slightly noisy but that's not my concern. I had 2 flaws on my Quiet Series 200 after 4 years which together would cost more to fix than to buy a new dishwasher. First, the handle broke so the dishwasher could no longer be started. This cost $200 plus an $80 evaluation to have fixed by Sears because the entire front control panel had to be replaced.
Summary: I heard dishwashers don't last that long. I have had this one for 3 years. It was bought about a year before we bought the house. So I'd guess it is about 4 yrs. old. Seems like motor burnt out on this one. I did use it every day. I am doing more research on dishwashers. I am not sure how long they really should last but, this was good for 3 years. The last year it got pretty loud before it finally died. My suggestion: do more research before you invest in this one.
