Our old Maytag dishwasher stopped working just before we left for vacation. Now that we are back, we need to buy a new dishwasher. The old one was in the house when we bought it. So we have no idea how old it is. My wife never liked the racks in it. It did an okay job of cleaning. I think the pump died in it, as it seemed to stop spraying, at least from the bottom.
I checked out Lowes and they had a nice selection that included Kitchenaid. I like the Kitchenaid name. They seem to make good quality stuff. (Though I think the Kicthenaid dishwasher is actually made by Whirlpool). The Kitchenaid dishwasher I was looking at (KUDI02IRBL) cost $579 had a stainless steel tub, and a plethora of features. Installation was around $130. Then my wife and I went to Home Depot, and found a smaller selection. They had a Maytag unit (MDBH975AWB) with similar features and that also included adjustable racks for $599. Instaltion is only $50, but is free after a mail in rebate. There is a $15 charge for parts. Haul away is free.We also get a $50 gift card when we buy the dishwasher. Then I checked Sears, and they also had the Kicthenaid with similar prices to Lowes.
I found a Consumer Reports review of a slightly older model of Maytag that sounded similar to the one we looked at, and it got a really good review. They named it best value.
I am still researching but I think I may have to go with the Maytag.
