Product Overview

Say goodbye to towel-drying for good with the help of this Maytag built-in dishwasher. Using innovative PowerDry technology, this dishwasher is capable of getting everything in the racks completely dry, so you can unload more quickly. The stainless steel chopper speeds up loading by grinding up food particles that you'd otherwise have to scrape off yourself. Plus, its fingerprint-resistant finish is easy to clean and maintain.

Key Features:

  • PowerDry option
  • PowerBlast cycle
  • Powerful Motor
  • Four-Blade Stainless Steel Chopper
  • Fingerprint-Resistant Stainless Steel exterior

PowerDry option
When your family's always on the go, running out of cereal spoons or drinking glasses can bring things to a complete stop. The PowerDry option dries your dishes better without using rinse aid, so dishes are ready to go when the cycle ends. By reducing humidity inside the dishwasher and increasing drying power, the PowerDry option makes this Maytag's best drying dishwasher ever.

PowerBlast cycle
The PowerBlast cycle is game for whatever you throw at it, from your messiest pans to your favourite glassware. It uses high-pressure spray jets and increased temperatures to remove tough, stuck-on food. And to make sure your dishes come out sparkling, the cycle uses hot steam to finish the job.

Powerful Motor
From cookware to flatware, you can be sure a Maytag dishwasher will get it clean. Maytag dishwashers feature the most powerful motor on the market.* Powerful enough to handle dried-on egg yolk on plates and peanut butter on knives without pre-rinsing, this powerful motor can handle your dirtiest dishes. (*Among leading brands.)

Four-Blade Stainless Steel Chopper
Skip the scraping and go straight to the dishwasher. The four-blade stainless steel chopper has the steely resolve to get rid of stuck-on food the first time around. The chopper disintegrates food particles that come off your plates so they don't end up recirculating and sticking to your dishes. And since the system doesn't rely on a filter, there's nothing to clean up afterwards.

Fingerprint-Resistant Stainless Steel exterior
Easy-to-clean, fingerprint-resistant stainless steel finish keeps your dishwasher looking as good on the outside as it works on the inside.
