Comment:
We use this Maytag at least five times a week. The loads vary from light to heavy. Thus far, washing performance has been stellar. Wine glasses have never been more crystal clear. And ours has a stainless steel front, so Consumer Reports needs to catch up with its rating information. Cycle times have been what we expected. We had gotten this dishwasher at Home Depot for a great price, and the service through them has also been exemplary. Overall, we love this dishwasher and are very optimistic it will continue to serve us well in the future.
