Summary: This unit is pretty easy to install as far as dishwashers go. With my old LG, I had to prewash everything in the sink, and just use the machine as a sterilizer, or the grim would bake onto the utensils.
Summary: My husband and I purchased this dishwasher 1 1/2 years ago after we had a house fire. After only 6 months the dishwasher option buttons for normal and heavy wash stopped working, and the entire keypad unit (and the entire dishwasher itself) stopped working after 1 1/2 years of use.
Cons: Low quality, Not durable, no customer sup, noisey, expensive
Summary: After 2.5 yrs the control panel went out. The repair man even said it should not have gone out being so new. Now at less than 5 yrs old I turn it on sometimes it washes and sometimes it just shuts off after a few minutes of washing. I just replaced my washer/dryer...
Summary: Like so many other reviews have stated, the electronic control panel lasted less than two years. Repairman quoted the cost of a new panel at $483. Needless to say, I will not replace it, but will buy a different brand of dishwasher and get rid of this one.
Summary: The first time it broke it was still under warranty. Maytag sent a repairman out. He found that the circuit board needed to be replaced. He came back in a week and replaced the part. No cost to us. 2 years later it broke again. seems to be a similar problem. The price to fix it is $130 plus parts.
Summary: I love this product. It is exceptionally quiet. (sometimes have to check to see that it is running). It outperforms any dishwasher we have owned including Kitchen Aid during wash cycle. Dishes and pots are very clean.
Summary: Start button no longer works. We had this problem about 7 months after purchasing the washer, and it was covered under warranty. The repair man commented that was the most expensive part to replace... well, now less than a year later we need a new one again.
Summary: We've had this dishwasher for around 2 years and just today the start button stopped working, as well as the dely and cancel button. While trying to figure out if it would be more cost efficient to repair or replace, we were reading the other reviews and noted that this was a common and expensive...
Summary: The gasket on the door which seals the unit shut when closed is perhaps a 1/4 wide. The Maytag man came out and readjusted the door to make it seal without leaking. Why in the world companies skimp on something as important as a watertight gasket is beyond my comprehension.
Summary: I was trying to buy a less expensive unit for our carriage house and boy what a mistake that was. I normally buy Miele and you don't even know they are running. This unit is so loud you cannot even talk over it.
