This is the dishwasher that came with the house when we bought it, and since it's still in working condition, we don't plan on replacing it. So far, it's been doing the job. Maybe it's not always the best job, but it's certainly better than the 20 year old model that was in the townhouse we lived in before we moved. Compared to that incredibly noisy machine, this one is fairly quiet and cleans better. I think it helps that there's a water softener on our water supply - we have very hard water where we live. But I do notice the occasional cloudy residue, especially on glasses, whenever my husband adds more salt to the softener. It's not the dishwaher's fault, but it is annoying. The diswasher gets the job done and it's far better than washing things by hand. There's plenty of room for dishes, serving pieces, glasses, etc. I can wash large mixing bowls and small tupperware cups. I never use the heated dry function, so occasionally glasses and such will have some water on them when the cycle is finished, and tupperware is NEVER dry, but it's not a big deal to let it air dry on the counter. I like the push button controls - the dishwasher itself is super easy to use and has a decent functionality to go from rinse only to a tough scrub heavy wash. The racks themselves are fairly sturdy, but the plastic connector parts that hold moveable racks in place are not and end up being more of a hassle than a help. Also, the racks rusted in some spots underneath, leaving rust spots on my dishes. A little handwashing took the rust off the plates, and I was able to get some dishwasher paint in grey to cover over the rust spots. (Yes, there is touchup paint specially fomulated for dishwasher racks. You can't just use any old paint). It doesn't look brand new, but it covers the rust and keeps it off my plates. I don't know if I'd buy a Maytag dishwasher again, but this one certainly gets the job done.
