This is the quietest dishwasher I have never heard. I could not believe just how quiet it is. Rated at I think 46DB, but I think its more quiet then that. Even on the shortest cycle, it cleans with no problems. Thanks Maytag.

This item was purchased in May 2017. It worked great for the first 3 weeks. Since then we have had a repair person has been over 8 times. They have replaced gaskets, readjusted the height of the machine and we are still having leaks. I have seen similar complaints on store sites, sighting an issure with the upper rack. Hoping we dont have water damage like I have seen others experiencing.

I like it now. After we Had to have the railings on the top shelf replaced. They did not fit correctly and the door wouldn't latch all the time.

The door soes not latch when ithe dishwasher is running. There are only 2 points to secure the washer to the cabinets. Our plumber said he has never seen auch a poorly designed way to secure a dishwasher. If any bumps the dishwasher or opens the door too hard it will shift. Then the door will not stay closed and it opens during washing. Water leaks down the sides. We have had to literally sit against the washer for the entire wash cycle to get it to run a full cycle.
