By far, the best dishwasher I have ever owned...

The "Auto Clean" cycle worked flawlessly every time...

Thanks Peter for all the scans...

MAYTAG JET-CLEAN DISHWASHERS

combo52's profile picture

I love thier survey results MAYTAG IS THE # ! PREFERRED DISHWASHER BRAND and yet KM DWs built by WP, KA DWs built by WP and GE DWs were all handily out selling MT at the time and through the end of the MT brand. These were very good machines and this was one of MTs many stupid decisions in the last 10 years of thier existence when they came out with the tall tub machines they dropped this design like a rock in favor of the new much poorer performing machine. WP is at least still building thier standard tub design machine, MT should have kept theirs longer while they worked the many kinks out of the new tall tubs.

This TOL Maytag was the best dishwasher I ever owned, I purchased mine in the summer of 2001, when we remodled our kitchen. It cleaned the best of any dishwasher I ever owned, and I miss it. I loved the sleek design, the loading capabilites, and the auto clean cycle. They could have made this dishwasher with just the autoclean cycle, and it would have been just fine. Too bad Maytag stopped making beautiful products like this.

MDB7100

ughh.. You made me "home sick" for this dishwasher...

My parents had the MDB7100, and it was the best dishwasher I've ever used.. EVERYTHING came out clean!

I wish I would of taken it out of the house when they sold it, and have it in mine.

I agree, too bad Maytag dropped this design and went with the tall tub. :-(

I do like my Maytag Tall tub, but this Jetclean tower model is far better!!

I so regret not switching that machine out when I sold that house.

It would clean anything you put in it and could get the door shut, and it was quiet.

I found this video, that shows you how powerful that center tower was.

Impressive.

Our house came with this dishwasher and it was still working when we got rid of it at the age of 14 years. Seriously the best dishwasher ever designed, everything would always come out clean and dry.

Sometimes I really wish I still had it, but the closest I have to it is a used Whirlpool durawash in the basement.

I had a 9100 for 12 years. Ran great and everything came out flawlessly. Only had issues with it when they came out to do the repair for the rinse aid dispenser recall. Control panel fried about a month after that.

The tower jets look more powerful than the jets from the lower spray arm.

The jets from the top spray arms are barely noticeable. I often wonder how useful the top spray arm was, once the Maytags were no longer the reverse rack style.

A small spray arm would have been enough.

I have one of these too.  I saw that video a couple of years ago and lost it.  I'm glad someone else found it and posted it!  Mine will out wash my Kitchenaid KUDI23 hands down!

Jenn-air

brucelucenta's profile picture
I had one of this vintage rebadged as Jenn-air. It was hands down the very BEST dishwasher I EVER owned. I could not only fit the most massive loads of pots, pans and dishes in it with not room for another spoon, it cleaned everything spotlessly! It was not as quiet as the dishwashers of today, but who cares? It would out perform ANYTHING I have ever used. I had replaced my rapid advance timer reverse rack Maytag that had been the best one I had up to that point with this machine. The reverse rack Maytag had replaced a new Kitchenaid dishwasher I foolishly bought in 1980 and kept only a year. It was the worst dishwasher I ever had, left little particles all over the upper rack dishes and took forever to do a load of dishes. Goes to show that not everyone thinks Kitchenaid is all that and a bag of chips.........

KA

volvoguy87's profile picture
It sounds like your KA was the dreaded 19 series that heated the final rinse water and tried to flash dry the dishes without the heated dry. It didn't work.

My mother has the MOL version of this dishwasher. It has the touchpad controls, but no digital readout, just LEDs. It has the most convenient, and flexible, racks I've ever used. It's capacity is huge and everything comes out sparkling all the time. I think you could almost fill it with cement, run the cycle, and all would be gone.

KA 19 Series DWs

combo52's profile picture
Actually dried much better than the KD-18s and KDS-20s and the better 21 series. The 19s had a MUCH larger fan and moved much air than the models with the separate air heater.

Of course I am assuming that you are using the Energy Saver dry setting on the 18, 20 and 21 machines.

I had my KDSS-20 for almost ten years and it did a miserable job drying, but I only ever used it on ESD just as I do on my 28 YO WP DW which does a beautiful job drying the dishes.

RE: post 25

 

Thank you for the video. I think a far better demo of the wash action from the tower under the upper rack would be achieved by blocking the lower rack with pots, pans and bowls, then see how well the water distribution from the tower works.

 

I have a Maytag DWC4910AAW, the series before this one. It has the pop-up tower and was the first series after the reverse rack machines. It cleans very well what I can load into it. In the operating instructions, there is not one picture of a pot, pan or bowl in the loading instructions. They show cookie sheets racked along the sides of the lower rack and mention "pans" once in the loading instructions for the upper rack. They show the upper rack filled with plates and cereal bowls and one picture of it filled with glasses, but the whole thing looks like they had not quite thought out the switch from the reverse rack loading. The WP-made Power Clean model with the full width wash arm under the upper rack is a far better solution for loading what I wash, just like the full width wash arm under the upper rack in my modified KDS 18s.

Thank you

For this thread. Lots of memories. I think those DW were seriously under sold, they were great machines in my experience.

Maytag Standard tub Jet-Clean DWs

combo52's profile picture
Hi Sparky, I actually think they were over sold, we saw thousands of them in this area, MTs DW sales nearly doubled after they got rid of the Hated RR rack design [ hated by the general public that is ] But the interesting thing I found about the JC models is nearly every customer I encountered with then was not that pleased. I was always talking them up to the customer, telling them they should not replace them etc.

Just last week I was working for one of our customers with a mint 1997 MT JC DW and she couldn't wait to get rid of it, she complained that it did not hold much and that the dishes never really got that clean especially compared to her sisters newer KD DW.

That's so strange Combo....I've heard quite the opposite over the years; MT JCs were some of the best performing dishwashers.

I wonder if it's geography based, in your sphere, with water conditions/culture, etc.
