Top-Freezer Refrigerator with FreshLock™ Crispers
Good Refrigerator at a great price
We prefer a bottom freezer fridge but this was for our Florida home which we are at for 5 months or less and this one was on sale at Home Depot for about half the cost of a bottom freezer.
A little noisy but works perfect and keeps constant even temperatures...no frozen lettuce etc.

This product needs design improvement.
Because of the construction of the refrigerator interior, I can no longer put a gallon of milk on the top shelf; also, I feel the center of the top shelf is very limited in storage capability because of the construction of the "roof" of the fridge interior. I would not buy this fridge again; my only regret is that I didn't wait until the LG I really wanted could be delivered. I took the Maytag only because of the next-day delivery - because we were going out of town, and I couldn't leave the non-working fridge this one replaced. I'm sorry... That's just how I feel.
Also, when the ice maker fills, it sounds as if the sink is running.

Concerns with freezer
We bought this refrigerator as our main one for now but plan to make it a secondary refrigerator when we remodel our kitchen in a couple of years. Overall I like it but we've had trouble with items in the freezer such as bread not freezing all the way and sometimes the ice cubes will be melted together. The manual says to keep freezer items away from the back fan compartment, but this is hard to do if the freezer is full. I am very happy with the refrigerator compartment, ample room for our needs and the drawers roll in and out smoothly. For the money I feel it was a good purchase.

Holds more than I expected
This refrigerator holds more than I expected, keeps things cold without freezing the food in the back, makes plenty of ice, and is easy to clean. I like to store my condiments on the door shelves, and these are roomy. Bought this model because it was one of the few that would fit in my refrigerator cabinet cutout. But I have to say, I am very pleased with it. The only thing I would change is the color of the door handle I wish it was the door front color (stainless steel) rather than black.

I purchased this unit for my parents. They are elderly and are very happy with the features and the size of the refridgerator. It is much quieter than the 20 something year old one they had.

Fits my space!
I was extremely limited in my refrigerator choices by the space I had available. I have had the fridge for almost 2 months. I am happy with it except for the temperature adjustment. In order to have the freezer cold enough, I have to adjust to coldest setting which causes partial freezing of some things in refrigerator. My ice cream is still quite soft and ice cubes are hollow and sometimes freeze together. I will keep adjusting temp control. I wish there was separate control for freezer!

Good refrigerator for the money
We replaced an 18 cu ft Amana that we had for close to 30 years. We chose the Maytag because of their reputation and because it had the features and the color we wanted (Bisque). It's very quiet when it runs which we really like, except when the ice maker dumps but that's not a big deal. We turn it off overnight. The freezer is bigger than the Amana which is nice but it means the refrigeration compartment is lower making it necessary to stoop to access the back of the top shelf. For us the door movable "pocket shelves" took some getting used to. The Amana had full width permanent shelves. All in all we are pleased with this refrigerator and would recommend it.

Nice capacity, door bins hold gallons, quiet. Textured finish is easy to keep looking clean.
But door bins don't adjust and there's no light in the freezer.

Overall Rating is Excellent!
Satisfied in everyway with our Maytag refrigerator! Its 21 cu. ft. capacity offers the extra inches which makes all the difference in storage to avoid over crowding. I'm big on salads and the larger crisper drawer holds all those sort of things conveniently together in one place so that all I have to do is take out drawer, make my salad, and then put the drawer back in the frig. So easy! We chose storage over the use of the ice maker, so that is personal preference. Compared to my last refrigerator, my new Maytag runs very quietly. Good, solid construction. Great buy for the money!

Falls Short of Excellent Due to Mechanical Design
This is a good refrigerator with respect to dimensional size, storage capacity, and internal shelf / bin configuration. What prevents me from rating this unit as excellent are:
1) Design - the drip pan under the unit is not removable and can only be cleaned by removing the back cover and wiping out the disgusting stinking water / mold / mildew build-up from the pan. The unit is only four months old!
2) Performance / Design - the temperature is controlled from one thermostat that does not allow independent control of the freezer / refrigerator areas. Either the ice cream is too soft or the milk is too cold.
3) Sound Levels - this unit is noisier than comparable models.

Shelfs don't have enough adjustment height
For the money, so far this fridge performs well. The storage shelves don't have enough adjustment so, if you'd like to put a gallon jug for iced tea in the fridge, it will barely fit or you can eliminate a shelf which is not practical. Taller items are a challenge with this fridge.
The fridge is a bit "wobbly". the delivery man said that the front adjustment legs for leveling were set appropriately but it's still " wobbly". Not a lot of room in this fridge but like I mentioned above, if money is an issue then this is your work horse. Doing a fine job of keeping food cold and performing as it should. I just expected a bit more of the basics from Maytag.

Good Refrigerator. We are pleased so far.
We bought this refregerator for our rental house, we are pleased with it so far.

Perfect size for my kitchen
The refrigerator is just the right size. It has plenty of room and the shelves are spaced evenly.
I believe in Maytag products.
My washer dryer seem to be giving problems and I may have to break my budget for these. I am a Senior Citizen on a fixed income so maybe these will last awhile longer.

The alcove for our refrigerator determined the size and style of refrigerator we could purchase, but we are extremely happy with the space in both the freezer and refrigerator. The clear glass trays and drawers are helpful. Fruits and vegetables retain their freshness longer.
I was concerned about sound based on other reviews, but this model is quiet. Best of all our electric bill is lower.

Simple, clean, reliable
Wanted to go back to a basic refrig, that works, is easy to keep clean, and runs quietly.

This product has most of all the good features of an expensive one.
This is a refrigerator, with a comfortable price I can afford. It is energy saving, adjustable spill-catcher shelves, factory installed automatic ice maker, freshlock crispers with humidity control, gallon-plus door bins, reversible doors, cool flow ventilation. I can enjoy this refrigerator with money budget. The outside of it is bisque coloured which matches my kitchen color scheme.

Best deal in the price range
This is a good fridge design within it's price range. It is very similar to a certain well-rated Kenmore but was less expensive. It is quieter than our previous model.
We have not had it long enough to vouch for it's reliability.

Unsatisfactory. Single control does not allow proper temperatures at freezer and refrigertor at the same time.
No matter how the single control is set, either the temperature in the freezer or the refrigerator is wrong. If the freezer is properly cold the products in the refrigerator freeze. If the refrigerator is at the proper temperature the items in the freezer are not cold enough. For example, ice cream becomes almost soupy and cubes in the holding container are covered with liquid water. An attempt at repair was undertaken promptly by a Maytag authorized technician but the conditions remain.
A secondary complaint; The drawer beneath the upper refrigerator shelf is too easily pulled out or dislodged.

Nice appliance for the price
Easy installation no problems so far after a month. Would be nice if you could buy it without an ice maker.

Good capacity, basic fridge
We upgraded from a 1989 fridge, so this was fantastic! Good capacity, does the job. Fruits keep well in the bottom drawers. My only complaint is that I wish it came with a built-in water filter so the ice is filtered.

Our old fridge was 35 yrs old. so, I am so in love with this new one.
Our new Maytag refridgerator is very nice in every feature. I was worried about getting a black one, but it looks great. it is so quiet, we don't hear it at all when it is on. It is easier to keep clean.
The drawers have lots of space for fruit and vegetables.
Ice machine is so handy. Better than those old ice trays.
This refrigerator is one of the only NEW appliances I have ever bought and I am 74 years old. So, I am thrilled with it.

Not a bad fridge!
My only issue is I need more room for gallon milk jugs. Which I can get if I take out a shelf and do some re-arranging of existing shelves, but then I loose shelf space...

Great refrigerator. Great price.
This is a nice family size fridge that is so versatile with several options for shelf and drawer spacing. I also love the fact that I have many side door options for storage. It basically lets you choose how you want to set it up. The freezer section is large without compromising the fridge section. Nice quality, it doesn't have "that cheap look". It is also nice and quiet. Best of all the door handles are just right so that my service dog can easily open and close the door.
A full 5 stars for this one.

Freezer never gets cold
The ice cream is always soft and the ice cubes tend to look like they've melted. Other than that the frig is fine. It is noiser than my other one which I'm not excited about.

I have owned Maytag products for over thirty years, The are reliable and are top quality!!!! I would not buy ant other brand!!!!!!
