Having suffered for 5 years with a stylish French Door/Bottom Freezer of another brand, I decided to return to a Side by Side. My previous appliance was always having temperature control problems, ice build up, and track alignment problems of drawers and the door of the freezer. Although the refrigerator section had great accessibility, capacity, and flexibility, the freezer design made finding items difficult. The side by side has no drawer alignment problems and much better freezer item visibility and access. This model has great capacity and one of the best ice/ water dispensers I have seen with the ice maker in the door so there is no shelf volume loss and a recessed fill area enabling support of the container one is filling. There is very little shelf arrangement adjustability possible, but this model is designed well enough that one does not need it. The only slight criticism I have is that the LED lighting although effective is not bright and extensive resulting in the interior being somewhat darker than it should be.

Grreat Fridge, bad icemaker

I loved the space, shelving, and lighting within the fridge model and it also had very clean lines. I was also drawn to the indoor ice-maker which freed up allot more freezer space. Unfortunately, the in-door capacity of the ice maker is smaller than expected and it runs out of ice very quickly. In addition the ice-making is very slow even with the "quick ice" option feature turned on. Noise is also a factor when ice is being produced.Overall the fridge side is awesome but the ice-maker in-door system needs re-engineering to produce larger quantities for a typical household.

Comments about Maytag Black Side-By-Side Refrigerator:
When we switched out the dishwasher we decided to to all the appliances since they were fourteen years old. It fit our price range and somewhat matched to other appliances. It is very noisy at times (I think when making ice) and sometimes things on the left side of the fridge freeze so I've learned not to put eggs up against that side. We have it set to the manufacturers settings and for the most part it's running well.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

So far so good. LED lights are a little dim but other then that we really like it! Love how the ice maker is in the door which gives a lot more shelf room in the freezer!
Maytag's appliances = QUALITY
from Charlotte, NC
We are enjoying our new refrigerator so much. We compared a lot of brands before purchasing and Maytag won. The inside is more spacious than our old one and better designed for all items.
from Little Rock, AR
This is a very good appliance. It keeps food cold and it has plenty of storage. If I had one complaint that I would like purchasers to know about it would be the ice maker. After a couple months of owning this refrigeraor the ice maker stopped producing ice. A repair man said this is common among in-door ice makers. Since it has been fixed everything is working just fine.
efficiency plus style
from fayetteville, Ga
I have had many different Maytag appliances throughout my lifetime and have always been very pleased with the functionality and dependability of each one of those appliances. That is why I will always purchase Maytag applicances. Quality workmanship, reliability and style is what gives trust to a name.

Maytag MSB27C2XAM 26 cu. ft. Side-by-Side Refriger
not enough options to adjust the shelving
from Oak Ridge North, Tx
I bought this refrigerator a month ago. A floor model was not available so I ordered it online. I did not get a chance to look inside so see that the shelves are not conveniently spaced. There are not enough options to adjust the shelving. There is a shelf below the middle drawer that allows only 3 inches of room so I can't even get my arm in there to reach to the back. Anything back on that shelf wouldn't be seen anyway so it is a wasted space. Had I known this ahead of time, I would not have bought this particular model. Otherwise, I am very happy with the refrigerator
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Really BIG refrigerator!
from Newport, Tennessee
It didn't look that big in the store! The price was great and everyone knows about the Maytag reputation. When they delivered it, I was amazed at the size! The room inside is amazing! I am so pleased with this refrigerator.
Love the fridge!
from Carlsbad, CA
I've had a 3 door/French door fridge since they came out. I wanted something different with more space for fresh produce. I checked out about 15 new models and decided on this model. I read a bunch of reviews which didn't deter me because people, well let's say are people. This refrigerator did not let me down. It holds all my fresh produce, different types of milks, jelly, condiments and when I switched over, I had a whole lot of space to fill because there was room. I didn't have to squish everything into a smaller space. Great design and lots of space on the door for extras. I never purchased a Whirlpool refrigerator before and I highly recommend it. The "fast ice" option is a must in my house because we use lots and lots of ice and is a great feature. Thanks Whirlpool. Almost forgot, you can put magnets on the front of the fridge, yippee.

Near 90% satisfied----the vegie bin has sticking issuse when pulling it out and some difficulty pushing back in--poor roller assembly. Also the ICE / WATER lettering on the dispensing tabs has rubbed off already.
