Summary: Just remodeled our kitchen & made the mistake thinking this was going to be a good investment. The old dishwasher we took out was easier to load, got the dishes a whole lot cleaner, didn't have to run as long to do it & didn't make near the constant annoying noise this one does.
We tried to take it back after the first week of being installed, but they wouldn't take it back because we took it out of the box (duh).
Summary: We are very disappointed that the bottom rack does not stay on the track. We called Sears complaining that they need to take it back. They agreed. However, we would be stuck with installing a new one. We do not see ourselves buying another Maytag or dealing with Sears unless this is resolved. We refuse to pay for installation since they sold us a defective product. It is unfortunate that today's major appliances are not made with quality as was years ago.
Summary: The unit cleans well, although the cycle is a lot longer. It is smaller inside. Not too loud, but not the quietest either. My main complaint is that when the unit is running it give off the worst smell like plastic is melting. It comes from the vent at the top of the door. We literally have to leave the room because it makes everyone feel ill.
Summary: I purchased this dishwasher because my old one broke down. This dishwasher has a nice design inside and out. I installed it myself replacing the old dishwasher so the physical space was ready. The directions were easy to follow. It looks great. It runs quiet and gets everything super clean. I've actually washed pots in here because I was lazy and didn't want to wash them by hand. Everything came out clean.
Summary: After 6 months it is still quiet and cleans beautifully. Our taller dishes didn't fit in the old washer but they're not a problem with this one. If I had a complaint it would be that it takes a long time to complete a cycle. Since we're never waiting on dishes, it's a non-issue. We're moving soon and plan to buy the exact model for our new house. I guess that means I would recommend it!
Summary: We have had this dishwasher for a week now and installed it myself to replace an old GE unit. Installation was straight forward it, just took a while. This dish washer is very quite and does a fantastic cleaning job. I read one, ah , person, say he cold not watch tv and I suspect he installed it incorrectly...or maybe he is leaning against it as he watches the tv, but ours makes less noise than our Kitchenaid refigerator to compare it to something.
Summary: Seriously- the first three times we used it, the soap 'door' never opened and then on the fifth wash; water started spraying out of the left side seal- ALL OVER MY FLOOR! Thank goodness, I happened to be standing there and started to feel water spray all over my feet. Bought it from Home Depot and as I type this I have been on hold for over 12 minutes. TOTAL CRAP, plus this was NOT an inexpensive model.
Summary: This dishwasher is VERY quiet. I am not sure what the others are complaining about. The dishes come out perfect and the style is sleek and contemporary and sturdy as mentioned by another review. The installation was flawless, very happy with the customer service offered by Lowes.
Summary: I am so disappointed with Maytag. Our dishwasher caught on fire and they would not have a person check it out. I had to get my own tech so I just replaced it for I know their control boards on their oven has caught on fire and I do not want to take a chance again with their products. As for the washer the soap drips down the inside of the machine, it is load and the racks are not user friendly. Avoid it like the plague!!
