I have owned this stainless steel Maytag Jetclean Plus Built-in Dishwasher (model #MDB6709AWB) for almost seven years now, and over that time, I have learned that I do not even need to keep the glass sparkling solution replenished, because it cleans so well, that I have seldom experienced any spotting. This may or may not be due to the fact that I have only used one clear liquid dishwashing soap (Kirkland from Costco), which apparently does a superior cleaning job every time. As for the final cleanliness of a full load, this dishwasher has consistently tackled every type of dish soil, including dried on cream cheese, sour cream, egg yolk, thick grease, milk rings, and more. The only thing I have had to re-scrub by hand was a frying pan with a heavily charred burnt, textured heating surface. Now, I simply pre-soak very heavily soiled items with dish soap and hot water in the sink before I send them to the dishwasher. As far as some wear and tear on this appliance after several years, there are some melt marks on the racking and the open/close handle is shot (but it still opens, closes and seals tightly). Noise Level Was quieter when newer, but still good. Cleaning Time Average of a couple of hours. Durability Open/close handle is worn out after almost 7 years.
