When we built our house, we got all GE appliances. When the GE Dishwasher water pump went OUT, the pump cost as much as a new GE dishwasher. So, we purchased the Maytag Jet Clean Dishwasher-EQ Plus and have never had any problem with it. We bought this weekend, a new Whirlpool/Maytag Front Loader Washer and Dryer and a new Whirlpool/Maytag Refrigerator-Stainless Steal, Side by Side with freezer below. This dishwasher is as old as the old Maytag Neptune Washer and it is STILL working and going srong. In fact, it is running as I am typing. We have found no problems ever with Maytag-Whirlpool appliances. Covington, LA.
