Maytag Jetclean EQ Plus
(Annville, PA USA)
My dishwasher is a Maytag Jetclean EQ Plus. It is quite a few years old, and is the second dishwasher that I have owned. When I bought my house I had a “contractor” type GE dishwasher with no special bells and whistles, but it did a good job.
I decided to get new appliances after living in the home for 15 years. So, I researched brands, and after reading tons of material about dishwashers, I decided on this Maytag. After all, the Maytag repair man is always bored.
The dishwasher had tons of settings, a delay wash, a touch panel rather than dials, and everything that seemed would keep me dishwasher happy for years to come. Well…..was I wrong. This dishwasher does not clean. It does do “rinse and hold” well, but in order to get mildy dirty dishes clean, you have to use the “Power Scrub” function which is the setting that uses the most water, electric and soap.
Forget being able to put un-scrapped dishes in the washer, as the ad said could be done, since the washer had a soft food chopper or some such thing. I have been disappointed with this washer since the day I got it.
I would never recommend this machine, or even any other Maytag product. I think they spend a lot on marketing and nothing on product improvement. I have friends who have a GE dishwasher just like the one I used to have, and 22 years later it is still operating with no problem. I got caught up in the bells and whistles of the Maytag and have regretted it ever since.
