Maytag MDB4949SKB Black Dishwasher Price in United States


  • Skip the soaking and scrubbing with Dual Power filtration, a dishwasher filtration system that disintegrates any food in its path. Maytag® dishwashers with Heated Dry reduce excess moisture so dishes come out dry, while a full stainless steel tub is tough enough to resist cracking and staining for years. Plus, ENERGY STAR® certified dishwashers help save money on utility bills.


  • Dual Power Filtration
    Skip soaking, scrubbing, and pre-rinsing with Maytag engineering that puts an end to pre-work. Industry-exclusive Dual Power Filtration combines 100% microfiltration and a 4-blade stainless steel chopper to filter out then disintegrate any food in its path.
  • PowerBlast® cycle
    The PowerBlast® cycle scours away stubborn foods like egg yolk, peanut butter and even dried-on oatmeal. High-pressure jets, increased water temperatures, and hot steam work together to clear food off dishes—so all you have to do is load them in.
  • Heated Dry
    Up the temperature to reduce excess moisture inside your dishwasher and get dishes nice and dry.
  • Touch controls
    You’re in control with a simple tap of your finger. Smooth, tap-to-activate settings give you quick and seamless access to powerful cleaning.
  • Increased upper rack height
    Put bulky pots and pans in their place with increased upper rack height that fits big dishes usually left for the bottom—so there’s no need for a second load.
  • Leak Detect
    The Leak Detect system is a combination of multiple features that measure and monitor the flow of water at various points. If a problem is sensed, the unit can take action by draining the tub and alerting you when necessary.
  • Quiet at only 50 dBA
  • An American company for over 100 years
    Whirlpool Corporation started in 1911 as a small company in Benton Harbor, Michigan. Today we are a global home appliance business selling products around the world. We are proud of our American heritage and ingenuity that have driven innovation for over 100 years.
  • 10-year limited parts warranty on the racks, chopper blade and stainless steel tub
    Maytag® dishwashers are covered by a 10-year limited parts warranty on the racks, chopper blade, and stainless steel tub. So when we say you can count on your dishwasher for years, we mean it.
  • Built for the long haul
    We packed in sturdy stainless steel that’s ready for cycle after cycle of tough cleaning. Stainless steel materials are built for high heat and resist stains to help keep your dishwasher looking good for years to come.
  • Full stainless steel tub
    The full stainless steel tub is built of stainless steel from top to bottom, so it’s tough enough to handle high heat for years.
  • End-of-cycle indicator
    The end-of-cycle indicator lets you know exactly where the dishwasher is in the wash cycle: when it’s in process, when it’s finished and when the Steam Sanitize option is in use.
