It is a shame that Maytag built a dishwasher that is the best dishwasher I've had as far as a spotless end result because there is a serious problem with the touchpad. My dishwasher is not yet 3 years old and I have had 2 touchpad panels replaced because they breakdown easily. If you buy the product, you must buy an extended warranty. Right now I've gone one week without a dishwasher because I've had to wait for a new touchpad panel to ship from the Maytag factory. Once the panel is received another appointment has to be made for the panel installation. Since the repair company comes to my area only 1 day a week, I had waited 2 weeks without a dishwasher. Additionally, I will have to buy another extended warranty once my 4 year warranty expires, because this touchpad panel seems extremely delicate. It has broken down twice in 2 1/2 years and without e warranty, the part and the repair are costly. So the washing is great, the product has real deficiency in the touchpad panel. Loading Flexibility I have the Tall washer. Performance Great washing, but a good del of trouble maintaining the machine because of a seemingly wiring problem in the touchpad. Design Well designed product. It fit well under the kitchen counter and looks attractive. The inside is well designed for flexible loading. Durability As mentioned, there s a deficiency in the touchpad panel.
