Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gets the Dishes Clean I may be one of the few people in the world that does not like a machine with tons of buttons and options. My previous machine had more buttons than this one, and I never used them. This machine covers the basics and has more features to spare that I will also probably never use. I like very much that I filled the detergent cups to the lowest line, and my dishes still get very clean. In the first month's use, I have only seen one little speck of food in the tub that did not get dissolved and rinsed away. I also like that I can see the refill line for the rinse-aid. I did not have that in my previous pricier machine. This is a great machine that gets the dishes clean for a reasonable price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It's Doing It's job This dishwasher was priced right and had a simple clean design. No problem with cleaning, everything looks good at the end of the cycle. I have noticed I'm running it more often. I'm not sure if my habits have changed or if it doesn't hold quite as much as my last dishwasher. I used the heated dry once and some of the things weren't dry the next morning. Not a big deal for me but others have complained about that. I usually turn the heated dry selection off. When it finishes I open the door and let everything air dry. Just an energy saving habit of mine.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent product My old (and therefore familiar) dishwasher died, pooling water in the bottom and frying some wires. We do not use a dishwasher daily, as do many, but need it when we need it! As we are in a small town, choices were not great, but Maytag was here, is a known great product, delivery was immediate, and we have been using it ever since, to our complete satisfaction. I am pleased with the features,such as delayed start, and the side for taller items, but most of all I am pleased with the sound level: this is one quiet machine! All is all, I am very satisfied. I'd say "I'd buy another Maytag dishwasher", but I fully expect this one to last me many years!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Solid Maytag quality This dishwasher replaced an older Maytag. It seems to have a larger capacity, is not too noisy, and does a good job of cleaning the dishes. I kept my upper-rack basket from the old machine; since this did not have one. It was also lacking the side trim which covers up the space between the dishwasher and the cabinets. Too bad; since my dishwasher and cabinets are white, and the dark space is very obvious and unattractive. I wish it had a different kind of latch. I feel that "forcing" it open and shut, as opposed to having a moveable latch that can be released by hand, is going to wear it out faster. I do like that it doesn't have a digital display, which was a big problem on the old dishwasher.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Wishing I had my old Maytag back After 13 years, my old Maytag dishwasher developed a leak. Instead of spending the money to figure it out and fix it, we decided to put it toward a new dishwasher. We went with Maytag, because the old one did such a good job. I have 8 children, so we tend to run the dishwasher at least twice a day. In the month we've had it, there is always at least one dish still dirty after a cycle, no matter what cycle we try. I see no difference in the dishes between quick wash and heavy load. The upper rack is just too short to put 9 inch plates in, and the bottom rack has way more upper room than is necessary. Everything feels cheaper than on my old washer, including the racks and the controls, and the dishwasher itself is louder. I was so excited about getting a new Maytag, figuring that in 13 years, things would only improve. Instead, I'm just wishing I could return it and find something better.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Maytag 24" Jet clean dishwasherPlus stainless steel tub This dishwasher is awesome. I have looked a long time for one that will clean well and I finally found one. Cleans ,Drys, and noise is really low. I have to look to see that it is running. I love it. and the cost was great. Found it at sears. I have had many dishwashers in the past . I am finding you don't have to go expensive to find one that does the job. The stainless steel tub is awesome to.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not as good as the old Maytag I purchased this dishwasher (MDB4709PAW) last week. It was to replace my old Maytag which was almost 14 years old. The sound level is about the same as the old one, fairly quiet. The capacity seems smaller, maybe because of the big cutlery holder. I took it out and put in my old one which is half the size, which gives me more room for pans in the lower rack. The upper rack is very close to the top and will not hold a stem glass nor a regular cereal bowl without the top sprayer hitting it. The user manual says the upper rack holds a 9" plate which is totally incorrect. I am not very happy with the machine for this reason, the racks seem to hold less than my old dishwasher and the upper rack will only hold very small items.This so called energy saver takes 1-1/2 hours to do a normal load. My old machine took 45 minutes. If you use the heated dry feature, it takes a lot longer so I do not use it. I found that if I open the door a little, after the clean light comes on, the dishes dry with the heat left in the dishwasher much faster

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Heavy Soiled Dishes A Problem I replaced a 12 year old Matag dishwasher with this new model. A change was made to the water inlet connection that I do not like. It was changed from a one piece connector to a two piece one. The valve housing was changed from brass to plastic. It is very easy to get the brass connector cross-threaded on the plastic inlet housing. Other parts are less robust than my 12 year old model. Overall cleaning ability of heavily soiled, dried on food leaves a lot to be desired. This unit is the quietest of any dishwasher I have owned. Matag did good on this. I would hesitate on recommending this to a friend. Might be better on purchasing a higher end brand that has substantial materials used in it's construction.
