Maytag or LG- which dishwasher to buy?

The time has come to buy a new dishwasher, and I'm debating between Maytag and LG brands. I prefer a quieter one, longer-lasting one that can clean well. I've done a little research and saw that LG is more expensive. Is it really worth the extra money?

    Avoid Maytag - almost any other brand would be better. Store brands might be better. They have ruined their reputation by substituting shoddy parts for good ones.

    Maytag went through tough times a few years back. The new owners sacrificed quality, hoping that the company's good name would keep people buying. But the company continued to lose money, and last year was bought by Whirlpool. It's going to take two or three years before Whirlpool has the brand back on its feet, but until that happens I'd avoid Maytag completely.

    Whirlpool's other brands - its namesake brand, Kitchenaid, and Kenmore - are much better quality than Maytag. LG is good quality (but the clothes washers are not terribly sturdy), but they aren't that much better.
