Dishwasher that DOESN'T wash dishes


I purchased the Maytag MDB8600AW "Quiet Series 300" dishwasher in 9/02 after doing my comparison shopping and found what I thought would be a real gem. I bought it for the adjustable 2nd rack and the additional 3rd rack for cutting boards. I ...

The three racks, adjustable second rack and fold down tines.

The racks rust, the arms don't rotate properly and clean the dishes.

Very happy - even though I had doubts


When I bought this dishwasher, I was not convinced that it would be a good thing, but it positively surprised me quite a bit. As a background: I am a German living in the US and I always try to be open to American brands and ideas to avoid the ...

Excellent cleaning Asymmetric and third racks very practicalDecent noise level

Get used to the racks to use the added spaceEnergy efficiency mediocre

Lemon Lemon Lemon


I bought this unit approx 2 years ago against my better judgment but my wife convinced me to go for it. Within one month we new it was a piece of junk. The pump stopped pumping water and as a result the arm literally burnt up. Repairman came after 2...

Absolutely none. Even the handle broke!

If you are considering this washer, don't if you have one sell it!

was the design of this outsourced to a third world country whose engineers have never used a dishwasher. My god man, they took a great idea and screwed it up. Let's start with the bottom rack- if anything thicker than a half inch is placed on the rack ...

I now know my service companies receptionist on a first name basis

racks were designed by someone who has never owned a dishwasher. it's not that quiet.

All those bells and whistles are off key!


This is a "tall-tub" dishwasher, meaning that the interior goes from a few inches above the floor up to the underside of the counter. Maytag makes two main variations of this dishwasher: one with two racks, allowing for tall items, and one with ...

It's quieter than our last one, but that's not saying much.

Third rack useless. Can't fit many dishes, can't clean them well either.

Utterly dysfunctional rack design


I bought an MDB8600A 2 weeks ago when they were on sale at Best Buy for $500. Thank god I didn't spend more. I wish I'd bought a different one. Let's start with the lower rack. OK, it's nice to have somewhere to put big, flat things like pizza pans. ...

Nice external appearance. Soft food disposer. Lots of spray arms.

Positively DYSFUNCTIONAL rack design negates anything good you could possibly say about the dishwasher.

Everything it's Crocked up to be


I must have a later revision of this machine because my experience is 180 degrees in the opposite direction of the other reviewers.

Fairly generous capacity, excellent washing action, Tough Scrub cycle performs as promised

Must be loaded carefully. Long cycle time not good for large households.

Disappointing decision


I was attracted to this model because of the 4 cleaning arms (must really clean well), extra features (movable silverware basket, stemware holder, adjustable rack, lid holder, etc.), LCD multifunction control panel (with tough scrub option) and the...

Attractive design

Difficult to load, long cycle

All washed out??


We purchased the Maytag MDB8600A in Stainless (exterior). This new model features Maytag's JetClean II and 3 racks. Maytag touts it to hold 10 place settings, and it has special clips to hold sippy cups and lids. There tines that flip and fold,...

Attractive, 3 racks

Difficult to load

Maytag Jetclean II dishwasher


We were in the process of upgrading our appliances and the first thing to go was our dishwasher. We had the bottom line hotpoint model which left dishes with a nasty residue if they werent cleaned very well before being placed in the dishwasher. This...

Gets dishes very clean, quiet, lots of features.

Usual cycle takes two hours.
