Cleans well BUT.....
by: Maytag Owner

This dishwasher cleans dishes excellent. I have model MDB 7749AWW2. We have owned this dishwasher for 6 years. The control board has just failed for the second time. Part runs $150. This was after replacing the door latch for $30. Factor this in when looking at the cost. It does clean the dishes exceptionally well.

Buy Anything Else
by: Anonymous

Just remodeled our kitchen & made the mistake thinking this was going to be a good investment. The old dishwasher we took out was easier to load, got the dishes a whole lot cleaner, didn't have to run as long to do it & didn't make near the constant annoying noise this one does.

We tried to take it back after the first week of being installed, but they wouldn't take it back because we took it out of the box (duh). They couldn't fix the stupid wheels falling off the lower basket either.

Bottom Rack Falls off everytime
by: Very disappointed

We are very disappointed that the bottom rack does not stay on the track. We called Sears complaining that they need to take it back. They agreed. However, we would be stuck with installing a new one. We do not see ourselves buying another Maytag or dealing with Sears unless this is resolved. We refuse to pay for installation since they sold us a defective product. It is unfortunate that today's major appliances are not made with quality as was years ago. In the meantime, Sears will be having Maytag manufacture a custom rack (whatever that means) Good luck if you buy a Maytag and deal with Sears..

My Dishwasher Smells
by: Anonymous

The unit cleans well, although the cycle is a lot longer. It is smaller inside. Not too loud, but not the quietest either. My main complaint is that when the unit is running it give off the worst smell like plastic is melting. It comes from the vent at the top of the door. We literally have to leave the room because it makes everyone feel ill.

Seriously- the first three times we used it, the soap 'door' never opened and then on the fifth wash; water started spraying out of the left side seal- ALL OVER MY FLOOR! Thank goodness, I happened to be standing there and started to feel water spray all over my feet. Bought it from Home Depot and as I type this I have been on hold for over 12 minutes. TOTAL CRAP, plus this was NOT an inexpensive model.

awful products and causes fire
by: disappointed Matag user

I am so disappointed with Maytag. Our dishwasher caught on fire and they would not have a person check it out. I had to get my own tech so I just replaced it for I know their control boards on their oven has caught on fire and I do not want to take a chance again with their products. As for the washer the soap drips down the inside of the machine, it is load and the racks are not user friendly. Avoid it like the plague!!

Unable to Install
by: Anonymous

Rough-in space heighth states 34"in the manual and I have 34 1/2 "clear space, but it doesn't fit the space because of the internal parts. We cannot drop it low enough to be able to access the controls without the internal parts, motor etc. sitting on the floor. There is just no room for it all under the machine while allowing enough room for controls use. I don't know what we are going to do now, I will have to contact where we bought it and see what can be done.
I am very discouraged and disappointed!
