If you’ve been around the block a few times, you might remember the loneliest man in town, better known as the Maytag Repair Man. For many years starting in 1967, Maytag ran advertisements with this bored and melancholy-looking fellow who had nothing to do because Maytag appliances never broke down. The brand became synonymous with dependability and many consumers have stood by them for all their appliance needs. While most appliances won’t last as long as they did 50 years ago, Maytag is still committed to delivering reliable products that will stand the test of time. In fact, they put a 10 year limited parts warranty on certain major components of all of their products to demonstrate that commitment.
While Maytag offers a full line of appliances, this article will be dedicated to Maytag dishwasher reviews. We will look at three different models offered by the brand, one front control and two top control. These dishwashers are all designed and assembled in the USA and Maytag boasts that their models have “the most powerful motor on the market” that can even take care of hard-to-clean food stains like dried egg yolk. All Maytag dishwashers come with a 10-year limited parts warranty on the racks, chopper blade, and stainless steel tub - an industry-leading warranty for sure! Some of Maytag's dishwashers also have an innovative upper rack design that is tiered like stadium seating to make it easier to fit large items like mixing bowls as well as smaller ones like coffee mugs.
Let’s dive in, starting with Maytag’s most economical model.
