My advise is "Don't get a Maytag". Ours needed 4 repairs in three years. The serviceman told me that Maytag had gone to plastic parts and he had to repair them more often than any other brand. His advice was to spend as little as you can, as many of the manufacturers use the same parts.

Oops, I'm about to derail this thread.

Next week I'm going to buy a new dishwasher. I'm thinking about a Kitchen Aid from Lowes that costs $700 + $120 for delivery, install,and cart off the old one, but they drop the $80 something state sales tax when you pay for delivery/etc.

Does this sound like a good idea, or should I just buy a cheap one instead? I'm thinking pay more and get better, although this is not always the case.

Two, almost three, years ago a lot of research into appliances in general led me to believe that at that time, GE had the best bang & reliability for your buck. Of course, a lot could have changed since then. No issues with our GE fridge, dual fuel stove, or dishwasher yet.

We have a Kitchenaid dishwasher. We really like the stainless interior. It is quiet. Very reliable so far. It cleans MUCH better than the builder-grade unit it replaced.

Wow, Murph. I wouldn't be surprised if people didn't start reporting missile sitings out your way.

Cesar, Consumer Reports doesn't rely on "customer reviews" for its ratings of appliances. The ratings are based primarily on the results of tests in its lab. One area in which customer feedback is a factor is whether repairs were necessary.


Yes, you are correct. I just meant that the customer reviews are sometimes sketchy.

Mike, since Consumer Reports has been brought up, I'll mention their recent ratings. I suppose the question of top freezer vs bottom freezer depends on what you want to bend over for. A highly rated top freezer meeting your size, stainless and ice dispenser requirements was the GE Profile PTS22LHR. The top-rated bottom freezer(French-door)was the Kenmore Elite 7759.
