Maytag Dishwasher MDB7749SBM

The dishwasher does it's job.   Nothing fancy about it.  The plastic stops on the top rack would not stay on.  I called and got a delightful woman who sent me two different types and one stayed on.   The plastic stops keep the top rack rails from scraping on the door and scratching it.   The top rack on some models can be lowered.  This model the racks do not appear to be moveable.   This is unfortunate as the top rack does not allow enough space to put tall wine glasses.   Looking at the rail supports for the rack, it appears that the only reason this rack doesn't adjust is to give the next model up something to differentiate it.   The roller assembly which holds the rack is very similar on both the adjustable and single position racks.  Looks as if an expenditure of mere cents would have allowed the rack to be repositioned.
This is the part
that kept falling off.

Overall the dishwasher is fine.  It cleans the dishes and it is much, much quieter than our previous Maytag dishwasher.  It is not as quiet as my son's Miele dishwasher but it was also about half the cost of his dishwasher so their are always going to be trade offs.

 If reviewing a product, it may have been received free of charge. That will NEVER have a bearing on my recommendations.
