Summary: Purchased this in 2006 as part of our new house build. 6 years later, it's dead....miserable washing performance. We're 2 people and don't run it everyday! Thought we'd get more than 6 years from it. I looked at the features to use for comparison to buy a new unit and I'm shocked at all the features that didn't work well....clean sensor? Hardly. As others said, you need to wash your dishes before you load them.
Summary: I bought this in 2006. So far, the control panel has been replaced twice, along with the control board and numerous other parts. After 2 replacement panels it has worked intermittently. Now for the 3rd time the panel has gone out again. I understand why it has been discontinued.
Summary: With in a year the control panel started acting up, We paid $ 150 for diagnosis, got new panel under warranty, and with in 10 months the replaced control panel acted up again. Not worth diagnosing again at $ 150.00, and no longer under warranty so labor and parts are at our expense. Might as well purchase a new dishwasher for that cost, obviously not Maytag or any Whirlpool product. Go with BOSCH, I've heard they have a better lifespan.
Summary: this washer was problamtic less thena yr after we purchased it. we had the operation board changed. now after 6 months, this dishwasher ceased all operation. we have it under warranty, but we are tired of calling for service. i would not recommend this to any of my friends. considering the brand name, we had high hopes for this machine, and we are greatly dissapointed. we would have liked this machine to be replaced we do not believe in fixing it.
Summary: I received this product due to a product recall of a previous Maytag dishwasher. Overall I am happy with the unit. The racks are flexible and allow for a variety of stacking options. I do not wash pots and pans in the washer but everything else comes out fine. It is quieter than the previous unit but the controls don't allow for quite as much flexibility but it does the job.
Summary: This dishwasher is the worst appliance I have ever had. I have to prewas everything I put in. Even prerinsing does not help. Silverware has to be scoured, either before or after going into the dishwasher. I load it ccording to the manual, and used the required detergent. I set it on heavy wash and tough scrub. no improvement. Heated dry is also poor. Unless I leave the clean dishes in the washer all night, I have to dry everything.
