Top Control Dishwasher with PowerDry Options and Third Level Rack
Maytag builds a strong dishwasher with Fingerprint Resistant Stainless Steel. The Long PowerDry option decreases humidity in the tub for 60% better drying without using rinse aid. We've also thrown in the most powerful dishwasher motor on the market1, a 4-blade stainless steel chopper and third level rack. Plus, we back what we've built with a 10-year limited parts warranty2.
Maytag® dishwashers feature the most powerful motor on the market3. Powerful enough to handle dried-on egg yolk and peanut butter without prerinsing, this motor can handle your dirtiest dishes.
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.
The PowerBlast™ cycle removes stuck-on food with high pressure spray jets, increased temperature and hot steam to finish the job.
Easy-to-clean, fingerprint resistant stainless steel helps prevent smudges and keeps your dishwasher looking as good on the outside as it works on the inside.
