Extended warranties are usually very inexpensive and can save you thousands in the future. Some can even cover extra costs that result, such as cost of food that spoils when your fridge dies. It's simple and inexpensive to purchase extended warranties and one of the smartest ways to protect your investment.

Appliances can be large, heavy, and expensive and you probably don't have the special tools or expertise needed to fix them in a crisis. If you can spare a few thousand dollars without batting an eyelash for new appliances should they break tomorrow, don't buy a warranty. But if you're like most of us, protect yourself by purchasing inexpensive extended warranties when you buy a new product and save yourself big money in the long run.

Professional delivery and installation is available for every product we sell. We would be happy to coordinate delivery and installation for you.

Awesome Dishwasher!!!

Submitted by Bigbull12 - 8/1/2017

This is the quietest dishwasher I have never heard. I could not believe just how quiet it is. Rated at I think 46DB, but I think its more quiet then that. Even on the shortest cycle, it cleans with no problems. Thanks Maytag.

Major leakage issues

Submitted by Jake - 7/17/2017

This item was purchased in May 2017. It worked great for the first 3 weeks. Since then we have had a repair person has been over 8 times. They have replaced gaskets, readjusted the height of the machine and we are still having leaks. I have seen similar complaints on store sites, sighting an issure with the upper rack. Hoping we dont have water damage like I have seen others experiencing.

Poor design

Submitted by Terri - 7/14/2017

The door soes not latch when ithe dishwasher is running. There are only 2 points to secure the washer to the cabinets. Our plumber said he has never seen auch a poorly designed way to secure a dishwasher. If any bumps the dishwasher or opens the door too hard it will shift. Then the door will not stay closed and it opens during washing. Water leaks down the sides. We have had to literally sit against the washer for the entire wash cycle to get it to run a full cycle.

This dishwasher is beautiful inside and out! It's the same size as Bosch I had before it but is able to hold many more dishes AND gets them clean! It's so quiet, even more so than the Bosch, that we hardly know it's running. BEST appliance purchase I've ever made!

Great features

Submitted by Dazed - 5/26/2017

We purchased our dishwasher a month ago and are very pleased with the great, thorough job on spotlessly wash and dry cycles. Love the adjustable racks and utensil holder allowing individual "holes" separating utensils. It is quiet and we like the lean lines of design. One design flaw, the plastic cover to the controls has a very sharp edge which scrapes my knuckles closing the door. Have learned to use only handle.

Very Bad Product and Poor Service

Submitted by Chuck Lamdin - 5/25/2017

I purchased this dishwasher 2 months ago and I started having trouble 3 days after purchase with stopping several times during the wash cycle and water leaking out the bottom of the door. You finally replaced the dishwasher with the same model and had the same problem after 2 weeks. Now waiting for a repairman to show up. This is the worst purchase I have ever made and Maytag has not lived up to its reputation and is not facing up to the fact that there is something wrong with the model I purchased. I want this dishwasher replaced with a different model.

TERRIBLE

Submitted by Tori - 5/14/2017

Originally purchased in Feb 2017. Started leaking and we called for service. They fixed something with the top rack, figuring that to be the issue (wasn't allowing door to seal completely?). Shortly after that it started leaking again. Early May our retailer graciously exchanged it for the same one (perhaps we got a "lemon"). Within a week, the same thing started happening AGAIN! We went with Maytag because of its reported reliability HOWEVER, there is now permanent water damage to our cabinets and we may be stuck with this product that clearly has issues. I have now read several reviews of people experiencing the same thing. WHAT IS MAYTAG GOING TO DO TO FIX THIS??

Highly Recommended

Submitted by FranOK - 4/26/2017

We purchased another brand and during installation realized we made a big mistake. The assembly was terrible, door rattled, dishes did not dry and had to be replaced. I had never purchased a Maytag and did not know what to expect but for sure the door was solid and that's one of the reasons I bought it. Well to our great surprise it has been the best experience we have had with a dishwasher and we have owned a KitchenAid, Bosch and Whirlpool. No comparison hands down Maytag wins. It's quiet (we have to put our ear next to the door sometimes if we forget we turned it on), the dishes come out clean and DRY. No more wiping! And while it was more expensive than some models I would highly recommend spending more to get more and the best and I'm telling my daughter when it's time to replace hers - get a Maytag. Oh and I forgot it doesn't confuse me with 20 different ways to use the dishwasher.

Small capacity

Submitted by Ginger - 4/5/2017

Okay, I know I should judge this dishwasher by the job it does, and hopefully I'll be able to write a glowing review after I have actually washed a couple of loads. But I just had this dishwasher installed today, and the first things I have had to deal with have been negative. First, the slotted covers on the cutlery basked -- the slots are no large enough to accommodate my knives and forks. So t had to simply remove them. Then after a Norma's dinner, I found it very difficult to fit all the dishes, glass wear and pots in the two racks. I had a maytag I purchased in 1997, and it held way more than this one. The large dinner plates do not stand upright, tilting forward over one another. Not sure how well they will get cleaned. In fact, the dishwasher looks over-packed, so we'll see how good a job it does. But the small sides and missing features my old Maytag had is so far disappointing.

This is the quietest dishwasher I have ever seen. If the green light wasn't on, you wouldn't know it was working. Dishes come out very clean and spotless.

I bought a Maytag dishwasher last year and was very disappointed. I had 7 service calls. It would leak water out of one side. They tried everything to fix it but had no luck. We talked with customer service and they agreed it was a lost cause and agreed to replace it at no charge. I am very happy with the new machine and with the service we received from Maytag. Sometimes you just get a lemon.

So Far So Good

Submitted by BCRanger - 12/10/2016

This dishwasher replaced the Maytag dishwasher that we installed when we bought the house 22 years ago, so it wasn't hard to hear and see the difference. Very quiet and love the fingerprint resistant finish, mostly for the dog's nose prints. As with all new appliances the first month is usually great, ask me in 1-5-10 years, that is the test of a good appliance. I'm not sure this one will last 22 years. The unit came missing the toe panel but the supplier is getting another ordered for us.

Submitted by Skip - 10/9/2016

I acquired this model to replace a Maytag dishwasher, model MDB8969, that was less than a year old. Unfortunately I had experienced a number of issues with my former Maytag. I had warranty service personnel visit my home on numerous (6) occasions and they repeatedly made unsuccessful efforts to repair the unit. I then decided it was time to replace the unit. I removed the former unit and installed the new dishwasher myself, the process went smoothly. However upon starting the new unit, model MDB8979, I noted that the cycle indicator light was malfunctioning. The light remained green throughout the entire cycle, rather than glow blue for wash, red for dry, and green for complete. This required me to contact Maytag Customer Service, "Once Again" for service! A service appointment has been scheduled and hopefully it can be resolved with in a single visit. I also noted one other minor defect, the Maytag nameplate on the bottom of the dishwasher was crooked as it had not been applied correctly at the assembly plant. Customer Service ordered a replacement and had it mailed to me. The unit is quiet and does a good job both cleaning and drying. I like the units new handle, the fingerprint resistance finish is a plus and the upper rack, with the ball bearings, operates very smoothly. If it had not been for the indicator light and name plate issues I would have given the unit Five Stars.

Yes, I recommend this product
