Ratings & Reviews
Overall Customer Rating:
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 market, a 4-blade stainless steel chopper and third level rack. Plus, we back what we've built with a 10-year limited parts warranty.Show all Features
Most powerful motor on the market
Maytag dishwashers feature the most powerful motor on the market. Powerful enough to handle dried-on egg yolk and peanut butter without prerinsing, this motor can handle your dirtiest dishes.
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.
The PowerBlast cycle removes stuck-on food with high pressure spray jets, increased temperature and hot steam to finish the job.
Long PowerDry option
Run the Long PowerDry option for decreased humidity and 60% better drying without using rinse aid. (Normal cycle; model MDB8989SH versus best drying performance on Maytag 2018 models MDB4949SH, MDB7959SH and MDB7979SH.)
Short PowerDry option
Amp up the drying power in less time. Get decreased humidity and 40% better drying without using rinse aid. (Normal cycle; model MDB8989SH versus best drying performance on Maytag 2018 models MDB4949SH, MDB7959SH and MDB7979SH.)
You're in control with a simple tap of your finger. Smooth, tap-to-activate settings give you quick and seamless access to powerful cleaning.
3rd level rack with adjustable tray
Get 30% more loading space with the 3rd level rack. Remove and rotate the integrated lift & set adjustable tray for increased third-level space for small bowls or lids. (Compared to Maytag dishwashers without a third level rack.)
Fingerprint resistant stainless steel
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.
Industry-exclusive stainless steel silverware basket
With roomy spaces on the ends for oddly shaped items like large spatulas and serving spoons, our industry-exclusive stainless steel silverware basket is built tough to handle whatever you throw at it.
Quiet at only 48 dBA
This dishwasher is made to perform at only 48 dBA, so you can enjoy the cleaning power of a mighty Maytag at a low noise level. (Per IEC standards.)
10-year limited parts warranty
Maytag dishwashers are covered by a 10-year limited parts warranty on the racks, chopper blade and stainless steel tub. So when we say you can count on your dishwasher for years, we mean it. (See warranty for complete details.)
Premium ball-bearing rack glides
Our premium ball-bearing rack glides give the upper rack a glide so smooth you can pull it out even when you're hauling an armload of bowls, or when the rack's lugging your heaviest dishes and baking pans.
Built for the long haul
We packed in sturdy stainless steel that's ready for cycle after cycle of tough cleaning. Built for high heat and less likely to crack than plastic, stainless steel materials also resist stains to help keep your dishwasher looking good for years to come.
Steam sanitize option
The Steam sanitize option lets you confidently wash important items with a high-temperature rinse that removes 99.999% of food soil bacteria.
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.
2x life tested motor
Our 2x life tested motor is built to last and tested to prove it. (Twice life testing based on accelerated 20-year life testing, normal cycle, average use.)
Premium DuraGuard nylon racks
Premium DuraGuard nylon racks have a heavy-duty coating that resists rust.
The end-of-cycle indicator lets you know exactly where the dishwasher is in the wash cycle: when it's in process, when it's finished and when the Steam Sanitize option is in use.
ENERGY STAR certified
ENERGY STAR certified dishwashers use less water and energy than standard models, helping you save money on utility bills.
