Summary: I bought this unit to replace a 7 year old Maytag (One model down) that had a broken handle lock. I wish I had just paid to have the handle fixed. This machine does not have the same rack features as my other one, very difficult to load, plus the inside is loaded with water after the drying cycle, especially the silverware holder. I ran this unit the first time with the high temp wash and sanitizing cycles and it ran for almost 4 hours! Not very energy efficient.
Pros: Attractive Design, Cleans Well
Cons: Awkward Loading, Doesn't Dry Well, Long Cycle, Loud
Summary: "I`m not sure if Maytag actually makes this machine or not. We had a Maytag for 25+ years and it finally was time for a new one. I am very pleased with this new machine. The dishes and silverware come out really clean. The cycles are longer than before because they recycle the water longer for conservation.
Pros: Nice loading trays and cleans the dishes really well.
Summary: The dishwasher looks and works fine. But when you buy it for x amount of hundereds of dollars, they then hit you for a $10 piece that by the way you need but doesn't come with the dishwasher. I thought that was very lame, and i wish i would have argued to get it for free durring the purchase. But thats what you get for shopping hung over.
