Maytag Under Counter, MDB6701AWW

I've had this model since October 2008. It exhausts the steam from the top left corner of the door. The vapor gets into the circuit board just an inch or so away. Obviously the seal is not good enough. The board has been replaced once already because it gets stuck at 99 minutes and the heat element is all that runs.


It cooks the dishwasher detergent onto the items on the bottom rack if I don't catch it right away. I don't dare start it and leave. And now, the vapor is destroying the underside of my formica counter top. You know, not everybody has granite counter tops.

So now I need a service call on the machine and a new counter top! Not happy! Oh, and it had a recall also on the heating element connectors/brackets.

Maytag MDB6701AWQ3

I bought my Maytag dishwasher just over a year ago. I was having some problems with it and placed a service call to a local contractor. The control board was in need of replacement - at a cost of $400 for the part alone. In other words, the machine was toast unless Maytag agreed to provide, minimally, a new part.

A call to Maytag revealed that they would not stand behind this obviously defective machine. I wasn't surprised by this response - I was stunned. The service representative seemed symapthetic but was forbidden by "higher ups" to do anything.

Long and short of it - Maytag does not stand behind their products. Avoid Maytag at all costs, as I am told this problem is common.

Maytag JetClean II MDB6701AW Dishwasher

Maytag JetClean II series model number MDB6701AW Pros: The dishwasher is surprisingly quite. The drying cycle is incredibly effective, leaving the dishes completely dry. Cons: The dryer is surprisingly energy inefficient, and my energy bill strongly suffers. The utensil rack is flimsy and cheap looking. Rating on a scale of 1 to 5: 3 out of 5 The Maytag JetClean II series is a sturdy and dependable dishwasher.

I have owned the appliance for 18 months and have not had a single problem with it's operation. The washing cycle is quick and effective, and the drying cycle works remarkably well. Conversely, the dishwasher's utensil rack is of lackluster construction, resembling more of a flimsy conglomeration of plastic than useful accessory. The machine itself performs well, and I commend it's superior noise reduction capabilities, but it's energy consumption is extraordinary.

The energy bill for my residence increased by nearly 20% after the purchase of the machine, and has remained at this elevated level, even without frequent use. I find this dishwasher to be of great quality for it's price point, but with it's lackluster accessories package and exorbitant energy consumption, I would urge the savvy shopper to look for a more economical solution to dish care.
