Maytag MDB7959SKZ Dishwasher Review

Design and Quality

The Maytag MDB7959SKZ dishwasher comes with a stainless interior and exterior, the stainless material provides better sound-proofing, heat retention, and hygiene than plastic.

The top-mounted controls are invisible when the dishwasher is closed and improves the overall look of the dishwasher.

Design and Quality Rating 8/10


This top control MDB7959SKZ dishwasher can hold up to 14 place settings capacity with 2 racks. Increased upper rack height fits pots and pans easily, and big dishes in the bottom.

The lack of fold-down tines makes it harder to fit odd-size items like chunky mugs. This Maytag dishwasher doesn’t have 3rd rack for silverware, it has a silverware basket that allows you to place just one spoon, knife in each slot.

Capacity Rating 7/10

Maytag MDB7959SKZ Cleaning Performance

The Maytag MDB7959SKZ offers 5 wash cycles, this dishwasher does not disappoint you at this price range but scores lower than its competitors.

  • The Normal cycle scored an average in our test and it takes nearly 3 hours to finish. 
  • The PowerBlast® cycle cleans well but it takes more time to complete the cycle.
  • 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 MDB7959SKZ 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.
