Maytag Corporation Complaint - Horrible Dishwasher and Company
ST LOUIS, MISSOURI -- I purchased the MDB8600 back in 2004 and have had problems since day 1. I had a new motor replaced 6 months after purchase. The biggest problem was that it was "cavitating", and I had every part replaced and it still makes the noise. I finally got Maytag to replace the dishwasher with model MDB8601 and you would think they would be similar--NOT. It is missing at least 6 features that I had on my old one. The biggest problem is the door on the new one pops up about 8-10 inches from the flat 90 degrees that it should be. Of course, Maytag claims that is normal. How can it be normal when you open the door and the middle and bottom rack hit the door and you cannot reach the back of the rack. Also, the bottom rack gets slid back in to the tub because the door will not stay down. Sounds like normal to me. Ever since Maytag was purchased by Whirlpool, the quality has gone way downhill. I have 3 products from Maytag within the last 3 years and they all have had multiple problems, and I hear the same with friends that have purchased Mayag products. Check out all brands before you purchase.
Remember, Maytag, Amana, Jenn-Air and all Whirlpool products (Estate, Kitchen-Aide, and Roper-along with some Sears products) are the same manufacturer.
