Maytag MDB4949SHZ Cleaning Performance

The Maytag MDB4949SHZ offers 6 wash cycles, this dishwasher does not disappoint you at the sale price range ($500) but scores lower than its competitors.

The PowerBlast® cycle cleans well but it takes more time to complete the cycle. The Normal cycle scored an average in our test and it takes nearly 3 hours to finish. The Quick cycle takes an hour to clean the dishes but well-suited only for lightly soiled plates and glasses.

Cleaning Performance Rating 7/10

This Maytag dishwasher isn’t the best at drying but does a decent job with the heated dry feature. This feature up the temperature to reduce excess moisture inside the dishwasher and get dishes dry.

Drying Performance 8/10
