Better Built to handle your dirtiest dishes

Maytag builds one tough dishwasher. We packed these models with sturdy stainless steel that'll stand up to years of the toughest cleaning jobs——everywhere from the Fingerprint Resistant Stainless Steel exterior to the stainless steel tub. Then we tossed in the strength of the most powerful motor on the market1 along with our 4-blade stainless steel chopper, so you can be sure what you put in comes out clean. Plus, we proudly stand behind our promises with a 10-year limited parts warranty2 that means these dishwashers are built for the long haul.

4-Blade Stainless Steel Chopper

No more scraping plates. The 4-blade stainless steel chopper disintegrates the food particles that come off your dishes so they don't end up recirculating and sticking to your dishes and glassware.

Fingerprint Resistant Stainless Steel Exterior

The easy-to-clean, Fingerprint Resistant Stainless Steel exterior keeps your dishwasher looking as good on the outside as it works on the inside.

10-Year Limited Parts Warranty2 on the Racks, Chopper Blade and Stainless Steel Tub

Maytag® dishwashers are covered by a 10-year limited parts warranty2 on the racks, chopper blade and stainless steel tub, so when we say you can count on Maytag® dishwashers for years of cleaning performance, we mean it.

Designed, Engineered and Assembled in the USA

From Ohio to you, every Maytag® dishwasher is designed, engineered and assembled in the U.S.A.

Industry-Exclusive Stainless Steel Silverware Basket

Our industry-exclusive stainless steel silverware basket is built tough to handle whatever you throw at it.

2X Life Tested Motor3

Our 2X Life tested motor3 is built to last and tested to prove it. Twice life testing based on accelerated 20-year life testing, normal cycle, average use.

Full Stainless Steel Tub

The full stainless steel tub is built of stainless steel from top to bottom, so it’s tough enough to handle high heat and resist cracking and staining for years.
