Welcome to our website! As we have the ability to list several hundred items on our website (our selection changes all of the time), it is not feasible for a company our size to record and playback the descriptions on every item on our website. However, if you have a disability we are here to help you. Please call our disability services phone line at 812-752-4424 during regular business hours and one of our kind and friendly personal shoppers will help you navigate through our website, help conduct advanced searches, help you choose the item you are looking for with the specifications you are seeking, read you the specifications of any item and consult with you about the products themselves. There is no charge for the help of this personal shopper for anyone with a disability. Finally, your personal shopper will explain our Privacy Policy and Terms of Service, and help you place an order if you so desire.

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 50% 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 our best drying dishwasher ever. *Normal cycle; Maytag model MDB8979SEZ versus Maytag 2014 models

PowerBlast™ cycle The PowerBlast™ cycle is game for whatever you throw at it, from your messiest pans to your favorite 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 PowerBlast™ cycle uses hot steam to finish the job.

Most powerful motor on the market* *Among leading brands. 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 2 .* Powerful enough to handle dried-on egg yolk on plates and peanut butter on knives without prerinsing, this powerful motor can handle your dirtiest dishes. *Among leading brands.

4-Blade Stainless Steel Chopper Skip the scraping and go straight to the dishwasher. Our 4-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 our system doesn't rely on afilter, there's nothing to clean up afterwards.

Fingerprint Resistant Stainless Steel Exterior The easy-to-clean, Fingerprint Resistant Stainless Steel exterior keeps your dishwasher looking as good on the outside as it works on the inside.

Better Built to handle your dirtiest dishes Maytag builds one tough dishwasher. We packed this model inside and out with sturdy stainless steel that'll stand up to years of the toughest cleaning jobs-everywhere from the Fingerprint Resistant Stainless Steel exterior to the stainless steel tub. Then we tossed in the strength of the most powerful motor on the market 2 * along with our 4-blade stainless steel chopper and the PowerDry option, so you can be sure what you put in comes out clean and dry. Plus, we proudly stand behind our promises with a 10-year limited parts warranty 3 ** that means this dishwasher is built for the long haul. *Among leading brands. **Visit maytag.com for warranty 3 details.

10 Year Limited Parts Warranty 3 Maytag® dishwashers are covered by a 10-year limited parts warranty 3 (square)(cube) on the racks, chopper blade and stainless steel tub, so when we say you can count on Maytag® dishwashers for years of cleaning performance, we mean it.

Designed, engineered and assembled in the U.S.A. We take pride in putting Americans to work building strong, reliable appliances for your home. From our Findlay, Ohio facility-where nearly half of its current employees have been working for over 20 years and counting-every Maytag® dishwasher is designed, engineered and assembled in the U.S.A.

Industry-exclusive stainless steel silverware basket Our industry-exclusive stainless steel silverware basket is built tough to handle whatever you throw at it. With roomy spaces on the ends for oddly shaped items like large spatulas and serving spoons, you can rely on this premium upgrade to take the trouble out of cleaning up after dinner.

2X Life tested motor 5 4 Our 2X Life tested motor 5 4 * is built to last and tested to prove it. It's endured testing to twice the average dishwasher life expectancy, so you can rely on it to power off your worst messes for years to come. *Twice life testing based on accelerated 20-year life testing, normal cycle, average use.

Full Stainless Steel Tub The full stainless steel tub is built of stainless steel from top to bottom, so it's tough enough to handle high heat and resist cracking and staining for years.

Professional delivery and installation is available for every product we sell. We would be happy to coordinate delivery and installation for you.

Extended warranties are usually very inexpensive and can save you thousands in the future. Some can even cover extra costs that result, such as cost of food that spoils when your fridge dies. It's simple and inexpensive to purchase extended warranties and one of the smartest ways to protect your investment.

Appliances can be large, heavy and expensive. You probably don't have the special tools or expertise needed to fix them in a crisis. If you can spare a few thousand dollars without batting an eyelash for new appliances should they break tomorrow, don't buy a warranty. But if you're like most of us, protect yourself by purchasing inexpensive extended warranties when you buy a new product and save yourself big money in the long run.
