I replaced a 22 year old Kenmore (20cu') that was purchased new in 1994. My children were 8 and 11, they now are 33 and 30. Around 2013 Old Betsy started "takin loud" to me. I must have put in minimum 60 hours of research to replace. The HUGE problem is my small kitchen and the depth needed to fit. I even considered taking off handles. I gave up and "she" continues to run with a "cough" here and there, until finally "she got real "tired". I went online again and only after several minutes, this Maytag showed up with recessed handles and I did not have to sacrifice cubic feet, which also was a big problem with the old one as to not sacrifice space for depth needed. Right after I ordered this Maytag, old Betsy started runnin like a clock, as if to say don't let me go, we have seen so much i.e. holidays, birthdays and such together. When the delivery men came, I explained my feelings to the older fellow and gave the fridge a HUG on the way out to the amazement of the young fellow. Funny stuff. I did keep some things like the ice holder from the old one. This one not only fits perfect but seems to run perfect. I've never had a light in the freezer and also been able to see everything inside the new one. The movement of the door shelves id also a big plus. Many units do not have a lower shelf on the door, this does. I am retired after 20 plus years in our local school systems and also sadly divorced and now disabled. In 1991 I installed (myself) a dishwasher that ran up until a couple of years ago and it was not the motor but the seal that began to leak, plus the handle finally came off after many years of rough use by my kids. It still sits there though I just wash by hand since I'm now alone here at a place I bought when I was 28 and just turned 68. I'll get a new one someday, maybe??? I don't expect much of anything to last like they use to but I must say this fridge was a "lifesaver"Thanks Bill

Freezer has ice build up the first week. It took one week to get the warranty service company. They said that air must be getting into the freezer but couldn't see where so they ordered a new door. Will see if this fix works in 2 to 3 weeks.The deli drawer is also very cheaply made. The freezer and refrigerator door handles are not aligned but the salesperson did point this out when purchasing. I should have seen that the overall quality was poor. My bad!

It is very spacious
from Lawrenceville, GA
Comments about Maytag 21 Cu. Ft. White Top-Freezer Refrigerator:
I have had the fridge for about a month and a half, and I really do like it. It's very spacious, and easy to keep organized. The freezer is huge. I only have two complaints: the middle pull out clear drawer can't hold much weight, and the refrigerator makes gurgling noises and a whining noise sometimes. I know the noises are defrost, but still kinda weird when you have company. I would still buy this product.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Great Accessibility With Metal and Glass Interior
from Fair Oaks, CA
We first bought a side-by-side from another maker but were very dissatisfied. We decided to return to this traditional style and are very happy with all the dedicated freezer space and the metal and glass interior that affords easy access to all the areas. Maytag has built the ideal refrigerator for our needs.
from St. Charles, Missouri
The freezer has issues with icing around the edges of the freezer door. If this continues I'm sure it will affect how well the door seals.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Nice Replacement Refrigerator
By The ps of CT
We needed to replace our 16 year old Maytag refrigerator. This one was the one that would fit in our space. So far we love the new one. It's the same cubic feet but seems much larger. Love the full size drawer in the fridge.
So far so good
from Portage, Michagan
I bought this a few weeks ago, replacing a 3year old refrigerator that broke and was unrepairable. So far so good. I hope this one lasts more than 3 years.
I love it
from Waterman, IL
I really love that there is a light in the freezer and the drawer for cheeses and cold-cuts is shallower and all the way across the frig.; it makes it a lot easier to see what I have.
Great, running small fridge .
I purchased this unit in November. Saw lots of reviews, some saying not so good. i.e. Noise, small, shelves break. Everyone has different views. Mine is Simply For a small unit this is then for me. Not Noisy, runs and functions as a Maytag should.
Saves Lots of Energy but Needs a Few Design Changes
from Great Falls
We have had our new refrigerator for about two months. We think it is saving us a lot of money on our electric bill. Our old refrigerator was over thirty years old and was an energy hog.However, a couple things disappointed us immediately about the new unit.Foremost was that it had glass shelves that were limited in their adjustability. However, all the refrigerators at the dealer - except the really cheap ones - had glass shelves and limited adjustability so we had no choice.One was the inability to move the unit easily any direction - except forward and backward - making it difficult to position for pushing it into the opening between kitchen cabinets.Another was the full width storage tray - even when empty - initially kept falling off its support slides and scratching the interior sidewall of the refrigerator on one end. After a few days of fighting the tray, we complained to our local dealer and, after a short wait for replacement parts to be shipped, the tray and its slides were replaced by a service person under warranty. After struggling for most of an hour to properly assemble the replacement tray & slides, which seems to work perfectly once properly installed, both the service person and we concluded that the original tray and its slides either had manufacturing defects or were mis-assembled.Third, the door storage was inadequate and inefficient. We decided that both problems could be remedied by adding to fourth bin to the three supplied door bins; we ordered, bought for about $50, and installed an additional door bin, which solved both problems. The dealer's parts department told us that most purchasers end up buying an additional door bin or two depending on the refrigerator size - something perhaps Maytag should considered including with the original unit.Our dealer has always been responsive immediately to our complaints and needs.

Needed a new frig for our weekend lodge, didn't want to spend a lot. This frig was perfect.

Have not had this for very long. My wife bought this without going to the store (bought on-line) and getting a real feel for the unit. I like the unit well enough, does what is meant to do. We are still getting use to the doors not having handles on the front, only pockets on the edge. Time will tell if this is a good unit in respect to quality.
