10 months and leaking water in bottom freezer
4 Star Review   By CCARA777 on Home Depot - May 29, 2013   

Sad to say only having this Refrigerator for 10 months it is leaking water into the bottom of the freezer and then leaking out onto floor. Maytag said that they think its a frozen restriction in the drain tube. I have my service appointment in two days so will see. Maytag online chat was very very helpful but dont call there 1-800 number you will be on hold forever. With this said about the Refrigerator I still love it I just hope it last....... Oh buy the extended warranty it looks like not much is made to last anymore !

Nice to see small fridge with features I wanted
5 Star Review   By Reindeer on Home Depot - May 19, 2013   

Overall I am happy with the fridge. The size is perfect fo two people. I like all the options available for shelf and drawer space. As others said, the suction when opening the door is significant and causes my wine bottles on door to fall over sometimes. Its quiet so far but I don't have the ice maker hooked up yet. Web site suggests the delivery guys will do that if water source is 6 ft from fridge but they said I needed to hired separate plumber.

larger fridge, smaller freezer.
4 Star Review   By debbie on Home Depot - May 15, 2013   

freezer is smaller than our 18 cubic, but fridge is larger. quiet and i love it. decided not to have water hookup for ice maker. i open a little too often just to open it. the two bins we had before were bigger than the ones we have now, but have 3 instead of 2, so it works out okay. delivery guys didn't remind us to level it, so opening the freezer or fridge it kept moving forward.

Nice and quite
5 Star Review   By TRose on Home Depot - May 14, 2013   

Was looking for a quite, efficient fridge. This one is great. It's in a small open house and I only here it running when it cycles (still quite).

Terrific Bottom Freezer Fridge!
5 Star Review   By Johnnyg on Home Depot - May 14, 2013

Okay for money
3 Star Review   By NATripper on Home Depot - Apr 23, 2013   

Less than a month old. The freezer space is limited especially coming from a top-freezer model. The build seems okay but inside feels cheap. The refrigerator part has big enough space. Again, I think it is a good buy for the money.

Great Quality for Price
5 Star Review   By Bunny on Home Depot - Feb 26, 2013   

I love this refrigerator!! It has clean lines, plenty of storage in fresh food and freezer sections, with lighting that allows me to easily keep track of what I have on hand. Its quiet and doesn't seem to run often. It maintains temperatures well. I've had GE freezer on top, Whirlpool Gold freezer on bottom, and Kenmore freezer on the bottom, as well as an LG top freezer refrigerators over the years... does that make me an expert? :-) Out of all those, this Maytag one is my favorite!

Love this Frig!
4 Star Review   By Dinneepa on Home Depot - Feb 12, 2013   

This refrigerator is Huge and i love that! It just fit in the space between our cabinets and I couldn't be happier with it. The adjustable shelves make configuring it to my needs so simple, and there is so much space on the door, most of the time i have empty areas because I just don't have enough stuff. The only minor thing is that the weight on the door sometimes causes the door to remain open. You just have to be mindful that you are pushing the door sufficiently to make sure it has closed properly. I love love love the freezer on the bottom with slide out drawer. Overall, for the price and quality this refrigerator is a winner!

Very Happy
5 Star Review   By NJbornandraised on Home Depot - Feb 8, 2013   

We've had this frig for about 1 month and so far, so good ... it replaced a 15 year old kitchen aid w/ freezer on top which was still working ok but making noise ... the freezer on the bottom is great and better yet is the frig on the top works out great ... no more kneeling on the floor to see whats on the bottom shelf of the frig! It's not silent but it's fairly quiet ... ice maker works well, plenty of ice ... the layout is very nice also w/ lots of space ... the freezer seemed a little smaller (old frig was 22 cu ft) but it's just the different layout of the freezer ... sliding door? Overall, very happy w/ this frig!

Much louder than expected
3 Star Review   By clarkjd1 on Home Depot - Jan 25, 2013   

This model is much louder than a 18 year old model it replaced. The Maytag representative said it normal for newer energy efficient refrigerators to be louder. On the plus side it has a lot of space and the shelves are really nice. It is less than one week old and is cooling well up to this point. Only negative is the noise while running. No clunking just a constant noise...

Good Value, low envergy, decent looks, good use of space, could be quieter
4 Star Review   By CLoch on Home Depot - Dec 18, 2012   

Refrigerator has a nice appearance, runs very little, and is relatively quiet, but I was hoping for quieter. Ice maker is very noisy when it cycles. It could use another set of shelves in the refrigerator section and moveable dividers in the freezer section. Refrigerator humps up about 1/4" in the middel top, so if you are close on height measurements, consider this possibility. No filter on ice maker, despite conflicting info from Home Depot.

Great Frig!!
5 Star Review   By Pamela on Home Depot - Dec 11, 2012   

Love the bottom freezer, no more bending over to get to the crispers! Very roomy, well laid out, very well lighted. Some have complained that it is noisy but it is much quieter that the 1995 model I just got rid of which never stopped running.

A great purchase!
5 Star Review   By NewDad on Home Depot - Dec 11, 2012   

It may not have a lot of bells and whistles, but it sure has a lot of room! Probably sounds like an insult to some, but this fridge has just blended into the background. It works very well, and is nearly silent. Just like a good appliance should! The only worry I have is the durability of the shelves in the door. They seem a little flimsy. But they haven't broken yet!

The appliance was exactly what we were looking for.
5 Star Review   By Stacy73 on Home Depot - Dec 4, 2012   

We searched several stores for a refrigerator with the freezer on the bottom and WITHOUT the water/ice in the door. We found this one AND was very impressed with the price, quality and customer service!

Replacement Fridge
4 Star Review   By BeagleBoy on Home Depot - Nov 10, 2012   

I bought this fridge after a thorough web search for a dying unit. My wife and I were more amused than impressed with the freezer unit being on the bottom, but it's turned into a useful alternative vs the top freezer. The single door unit seems to have more space than the double unit but you have to totally open the door to get to items in the back. The ice maker is very efficient and the freezer location is a plus. The only negative so far, is that after the installer and I both balanced the unit, the door won't shut unless you almost completely shut it as it swings back open. Thought maybe too much weight in the door, but no difference.

Great product at a great price!
5 Star Review   By Mary on Home Depot - Nov 4, 2012   

This refrigerator is exactly what I wanted - light, spacious and well organized. The delivery was timely, set up easy, and everything works as expected. I've only had it a few weeks, but so far so good! It even kept the ice cubes completely frozen for 3 full days after Hurricane Sandy knocked the power out!

Worked OK until it turned 18 months old
2 Star Review   By mcjodi on Home Depot - Oct 29, 2012   

I selected this model because it was the largest one I could get given space limitations. Although it seemed noisy (when the fan would kick on it would make a noise as if a woodpecker were trapped inside for about 10 seconds), I was not about to make an issue of it since it was tough enough getting this delivered. Perhaps I should have because now, at 18 months old, the fridge has stopped working. The freezer is OK, but the fridge won't get below 65 degrees. Maytag told me "too bad" since I am out of warranty.

Don't think twice...just get this!
5 Star Review   By ZooPah on Home Depot - Oct 3, 2012   

This is a beauty! Stylish appliance that goes perfect with my black dishwasher and stove. Love the gleaming stainless door -so easy to keep shiny. I don't usually get excited about an appliance - but the style plus the quality of the shelving, crisper drawers etc make this a 'luxury' fridge. It has loads more space than my old 18 cu ft model, yet recesses back 3 inches more than old one, due to the new slim door design. The freezer drawer glides effortlessly as do the interior freezer drawers. I received a "12 mos no interest coupon' with my HD credit card statement so that sweetened the deal. HD installer very professional. (He remarked on my beautiful floor - an HD 'floating floor' with travertine vinyl planks that fit together like a puzzle and don't need a subfloor) I always check out HD first, compare, then come back to HD to purchase.

Great refrigerator!!!
5 Star Review   By Samnsug on Home Depot - Aug 28, 2012   

We bought this frig after much research. I love not having to bend over the get in the veggie drawer or wipe it down. The freezer is spacious, have yet to fill either top of bottom, there is so much space. It is alo so attractive, really dressed up our kitchen! Delivery was prompt. I love the fact this refrigerator has an ice cube maker!

Read this before buying any Maytag/Whirlpool products!
1 Star Review   By dstrob on Home Depot - Aug 24, 2012   

I enjoyed my refrigerator for 6 weeks until the compressor went out! I know that could be a fluke...but...the reason I am writing such a bad review is the Maytag/Whirlpool (Whirlpool now owns Maytag) customer service!!! I was told that it would take 3 WEEKS to be a part for my new refrigerator which had only worked for 50 days. Home Depot, where I had bought it, pushed Maytag/Whirlpool to agree to replace the product, but they could not replace it until the paperwork came from Maytag/Whirlpool. We were told by their customer service that it would take 4 DAYS to process the papers!!!! That's working days, and this was on a Friday! This company offers terrible support for their products and I would not suggest that anyone purchase ANY product from this company. BUYER BEWARE!!!

Almost Excellent. But there this...
3 Star Review   By coalex on Home Depot - Aug 21, 2012   

Over all this is a good Refrigerator/Freezer. It is a really great value, especially if you get it on sale as I did. It seems to be energy efficient which is important to me and overall I'm happy with it. But! (why you’re reading this): The inside layout ships kooky from the factory: The layout on the inside of the refrigerator and freezer takes some tweaking and getting used to. The standard layout (from the factory) was all wrong for me. I had to move almost every shelf and space divider to fit my various food items. If you like order in the refrigerator, be ready to completely rearrange the inside shelves and dividers. A ridiculous example of this was the stock layout in the freezer. It did not allow me to put a frozen pizza in there without removing the plastic space divider. Now I have a piece of plastic from the freezer in my cabinet for the life of the appliance. Who needs that? More on that: The refrigerator is large but the Freezer is surprisingly small. I would not recommend this model if you need a large spacious freezer. We hunt and fish, and the freezer does not have adequate space for our meats. The freezer is divided into two levels with shelves that pull out for access with the ice maker on the top shelf. This functions ok but these shelves effectively cut the storage space in half so you must stack items instead of aligning them. We used to align our meats like books on a shelf. Now we must stack them, and you can only stack them so high without affecting the movement of the shelves. Loud ice maker: The ice maker cranks out ice, which we like, but it is loud when the tray is filling with water. Every once in a while (couple times a day) it sounds like opening a can of soup with an automatic can opener and lasts about 3 seconds. Not a big deal but our last ice maker was quiet. Takes a strong pull to open it initially: The refrigerator door has a heck of a seal. Great for keeping it cold inside and energy efficient, but is difficult to open for younger children (might be a good thing) and elderly people. The cold cut drawer is too shallow: I don’t know if we eat a lot of meat and cheese but the cold cut draw (where we keep sandwich stuff) is too shallow. We are constantly pulling it out completely to get at things. Overall the little things take away from unit, which is otherwise bright and efficient.

Very nice refrigerator, quiet and plenty of space.
5 Star Review   By CliffT on Home Depot - Aug 11, 2012   

The refrigerator was installed earlier this week, no problems getting it up to the second floor and through all the passageways after removing the refrigerator doors. The 9.99 water connection kit suggested at check out is much too short and had to be replaced with a 7 foot version and a 1/4 inch to 1/4 inch coupler with two compression fittings to connect the refrigerator (the coupler and compression fittings were not supplied with the "connection kit"). I like keeping the copper line tethered to the wall and letting the plastic line stretch out for moving and cleaning. The installer was courteous and businesslike, and explained some of the settings for the new fridge. He stated that it would take 24 hours for the fridge to get cold, but I found that the refrigerator portion was down to 37 degrees F within three hours and that the ice maker had already made the first batch of ice! Impressive to say the least. The refrigerator is also very quiet and runs a lot less than my previous one. It also looks great inside and out. Love the bottom freezer and top fridge; this if the first of this type owned. My previous fridge was a side by side and although the freezer was convenient for stacking small frozen items never like the fact that it was too narrow to allowing large turkeys to fit. Overall I would highly recommend this appliance.

Maytag Bottom Freezer Refrigerator MBF2258XEW
5 Star Review   By 1RTR on Home Depot - Jul 21, 2012   

I love this refrigerator!! It has a super large fresh food section and an ample frozen food section. The clear glass adjustable shelves are great as are the adjustable bins in the door. Love, love the gallon door storage! The clear crisper drawers are plenty big as is the clear deli drawer. You can see what is in them! It is extremely well designed and it just works for me, which is my bottom line, rather than making my life so difficult. Having the fresh food at eye level is such a wonderful thing, since that is the area you access so much. Lots of light in both compartments and it is very cold at the #4 setting. I did several days of internet research before I even checked out this appliance in person. On this site and another retailer, this model was rated 4 1/2 stars by 77 reviewers. A former appliance technician for another brand rated it 5 stars. I was impressed by that. I have had it for almost 2 months and it is running great. It is very quiet. Here is my experience for the first day: It was delivered and turned on at 9:30 am. Within 2 hrs. it was cold enough, at the #4 factory setting, to put my food into it. All my food was cold when it was put in and some had been frozen overnight, so nothing went in that was room temp. At 11:37 am the ice maker received water and at 12:37, only one hour later, the first ice had been made. I did throw that ice out, as instructed, and the appliance continued to make ice several more times until the bin was filled. That might have taken the rest of the day. I really didn't pay much attention to that. The ice maker is quiet. Initially, until the bin has one layer of ice, you will hear the ice as it falls into the bin, but, after that, you won't hear it if that is a concern. I was also very glad to find an appliance that was "assembled" in the USA. You will not be disappointed with your purchase of this excellent refrigerator. I would give it 10 stars!!

Better than a side by side
5 Star Review   By Rick585 on Home Depot - Jul 10, 2012   

I recently moved and left behind an Amana side by side with an ice maker and water at the door. I like this Maytag much more. I thought I would miss the ice and water outside the door, but I really don't. This Maytag is an ice making animal. It has way more room than the side by side and I love it so far. I have only had it a week, but I am thrilled that I chose this model and so is the Mrs.

So much quieter than my old GE standard fridge
5 Star Review   By Camryone on Home Depot - Jul 9, 2012   

I purchased this refrigerator last month and am totally satisfied with my purchase. The delivery was on time, the installers were professional and had the installation down to a science. They moved my old fridge into the garage for me. This refrigerator is very quiet compared to my old fridge (which was only 7 years old). I purchased in black to go with my bistro themed kitchen and it looks very modern. The bottom freezer is great for me as I suffer from hip issues and hardly use the freezer anyway - so compared to the old freezer up top has been great on my back. Would highly recommend this Maytag fridge. In fact, my s/o is considering purchasing the same unit for his home. Thanks Maytag.

very quiet machine
5 Star Review   By MLB01 on Home Depot - Jun 3, 2012   

This is not my first experience with Maytag, but the first bottom freezer unit I have owned. And I really like this feature! I had the delivery men put the handle on the right, to swing left side, which is best for my floorplan, and the conveniece is amazing. If you could call a big white box beautiful, then this machine IS beautiful....it is quiet, fits my 33" opening, and operates well. Glad I choose it!

This is a great refrigerator. Quiet and efficient. Nice streamlined look. But my favorite part is how the refrigerator part is configured, with deep doors and rather shallow inner part, so that it is easy to store full gallons of milk or orange juice in the doors as well as cheese, eggs and condiments, and easy to see what you have in the main body of the fridge.( In my old side-by-side, the doors were shallow and the fridge part narrow and deep, which was a pain. I would find nasty leftovers way in the back..) Both the fridge and the freezer portions are well-lit as well. The only part I don't like is that it has a built-in ice cube maker and there is no way to shut it off permanently. I have had nothing but trouble with those and did not have the water hooked up. The only way to keep it off is to be sure the wire arm is always up. It is important to keep the ice cube maker off if not connected, because if it is on, the motor will grind away trying to make ice cubes and eventually the motor will burn out! This happened to my sister so I was alert to the potential problem. I know, you are thinking, well, get a model with no icemaker, but let me tell you, there are hardly any, and the ones that are that way are mainly small ones for dorms. I only bought this last month so it is too early to tell about longevity, but so far I am very pleased.

Great price and easy delivery
4 Star Review   By Bill on Home Depot - Apr 17, 2012   

So far so good. This thing is as quiet as a mouse. Haven't had it long enough to see a difference in my electric bill yet, but I'm betting it will. This fridge is 100% better than our old one that we bought in '96. I really have no complaints so far. Ice maker makes adequate amount of ice. Delivery was easy.

Energy efficient. Wonder if interior fitting will hold up.
4 Star Review   By Kite on Home Depot - Apr 17, 2012   

It's quiet and bright. I think it will save us on electricity. Freezer on the bottom is ergonomic. A little smaller on the interior than last fridge of nominally the same size. Drawers seem flimsy and the storage on the door wastes space.

This product has great features.
5 Star Review   By momof2 on Home Depot - Apr 10, 2012   

I love the pull-out freezer drawers. the icemaker makes ice really quickly so you never are short on ice cubes. The refrigerator being on top is nice, everything is right eye level.

Great buy
5 Star Review   By bearsis on Home Depot - Apr 10, 2012   

This replaced an 18+ year old refrigerator. Love the lights in both refrigerator and freezer. Doors close solidly, very quiet when running. Don't have the ice maker hooked up as we don't have a water line for it. Not a big deal, I'm used to making ice cubes. Taller than I thought, but it's not in an enclosed space so that's no problem. Very roomy in the refrigerator, a bit smaller in the freezer but we make it work. Am curious to see if there's a noticeable difference in the energy bill. Delivery men did a nice job with taking the old one out and installing the new one. They did bend the handles on our gate backing the truck into the yard, but we were going to replace them anyway.......LOL. Two calls to let us know when they would be there, and actually arrived earlier than the time given.

I have no complaints about this refrigerator. It runs silently. The doors open and shut easily. The entire unit stores a LOT!

I love my new bottom freezer refrigerator
5 Star Review   By Wenonah on Home Depot - Mar 6, 2012   

I love my new refrigerator I have always wanted to have the freezer at the bottom. It is so much easier to see what is in the top of refrigerator now that you don't have to bend over to see what is on the bottom self. I love the ice maker in the freezer. Never had one before and I love not having to fill ice trays.

Overall this product is good.
4 Star Review   By Luey on Home Depot - Feb 28, 2012   

So far the refrigerator has been dependable. It is attractive with clean lines. One draw back is the piece that covers the upper door hinge is almost impossible to position when installing the refrigerator. I have been pleased with the operation and for the money it is definitely a good deal. Home Depot installers were here on time and worked quickly and efficiently.

Maytag Bottom freezer
4 Star Review   By BBopper on Home Depot - Feb 14, 2012   

Big, sturdy, nicely arranged. Did't know that Amanda and Maytag are the same company. Bought his on ratings from other reviews. I am please with it's sturdiness and appearance/performance. does what it should. Ice maker works great. I will say that it is a bit noisy when it makes ice. I sometimes sleep in the LR because of snoring and I hear it, but I am very close to the kitchen in our open home. Not a problem in the day- don't hear it above other ambient noise.

Excellent Value - Energy Efficient - I highly recommend this refrigerator !
5 Star Review   By solarman on Home Depot - Jan 24, 2012   

This Maytag fridge replaced a 17-year old Freezer on top model. I chose this model because I wanted an energy efficient, bottom freezer, single door fridge. This model had the best energy guide energy use rating (404 kwH per Year!). I am monitoring its energy usage with a Kill-A-Watt meter and I'm really impressed - it uses 50% less energy than my old fridge even though this new model is 4 cu.ft larger. After years of using a freezer on top model, I really appreciate having everything in the fridge section at eye level and accessible. It really makes sense to have the less often opened freezer on the bottom. shelves and door bins are configurable. It is very spacious and quiet. If you're looking for an energy efficient, no frills model with good value this is the model for you. It is made by Whirlpool and basically the same fridge as the Whirlpool version which is sold at a higher price. A couple of things Whirlpool should change on this fridge: make the drain pan removable for easier cleaning, replace the incandescent bulbs with LED lamps. So far I am very pleased and looking forward to many years of energy savings.

Good product but somewhat loud
4 Star Review   By Tucsonreviewer on Home Depot - Jan 20, 2012   

Pros: Very efficient; sturdy adjustable shelving Con: It's noisier than I expected although probably no louder than the 25 year old side-by-side that it replaced.

good for what we were looking for
4 Star Review   By jnhg on Home Depot - Jan 3, 2012   

So far so good with this fridge. We wanted something with bottom freezer and that was an energy efficient model. The fridge door is a bit heavy, you really have to pull to get it open which is hard for my 3 year old (maybe a good thing!). The bottom freezer takes some getting used to since we have never had one like that, but I like it much better than our old side by side model. I had to add in some additional dividers so I could organize the bins a little more and not have to dig through everything every time I needed something out of there.

BAD ICE MAKER
2 Star Review   By BKWI on Home Depot - Dec 29, 2011   

I have only had this a week and they are coming to fix the ice maker. The fridge and freezer work great but the ice maker is a lemon.

Great design
5 Star Review   By Mission on Home Depot - Nov 17, 2011   

Love the layout as well as size. Footprint is the same as my old unit, they just made it taller to fit in the extra cubic feet. Ice maker filled up the tray in less than 24 hours.

It's noisy
3 Star Review   By etgreenbean on Home Depot - Nov 2, 2011   

It may be that it is in a tile kitchen but I am sure that is only half of the problem. It squeaks and gurgles more than most. The ice cubes are coming out half frozen. I'm not at all pleased. I do.n't have time to mess with it

I love this fridge.
5 Star Review   By Kelsy on Home Depot - Oct 29, 2011   

The good: quiet, efficient, bright, door bins nice and deep, bottom freezer drawers pull out smoothly, shelves and bins very sturdy The bad: produce drawers are too shallow (half my produce ends up in the main fridge), cheese drawer is too small (we get those giant blocks of cheese from Costco and they almost don't fit), ice maker is not removable (takes up space I could be using), and there could be one more bin for the door (spare ones cost $$$) Overall, a very nice fridge for the price.

Alot of room
4 Star Review   By Randy on Home Depot - Oct 22, 2011   

Great frig. alot of room and shelf space the only real draw back is how light the drawers are. Seem to be made of a cheep plastic you think they could have spent a little more on the thickness of them, to make less flimsley

This product has great features and is very roomy. It is noisy, however.
5 Star Review   By chopsticks05 on Home Depot - Oct 11, 2011   

Bought this fridge online for a great price due to an online special plus an instant rebate. Stays very cold and has lots of easy to access space. I especially love the milk jugs in the door. It was easy to move (wheels are very smooth) but haven't discovered how to lock the wheels yet so it rolls forward when I open the door! Right now there is a buzz that seems to come from the door and it stops when I push the door- perhaps a screw needs tightening. Overall, I am very happy with this fridge.

So far so good
5 Star Review   By noisyfridgeii on Home Depot - Sep 27, 2011   

Had the appliance for about a month - no problems - love the size and layout - the lower freeze is soooo much better than a side by side. Ice maker works great. Need to run a few more months to see if it saves us any energy costs. SO far we are very happy with the unit and the process of ordering from Home Depot.

5 Star Review   By cookieconnie on Home Depot - Aug 15, 2011   

I LOVE THIS REFRIGERATOR! I can see EVERYTHING that is in the fridge no matter what shelf it is on. It is extremely quiet!!! Having the freezer on the bottom works so well. I've been wondering why I waited so long to purchase. I highly reccomemend this product.

A Beauty! Just Bought It
5 Star Review   By azj42 on Home Depot - Nov 17, 2010   

I am so happy the Sales Associate at my local Home Depot called this bottom freezer beauty to my attention! A true pull out freezer at the bottom. Drawer glides out easily. Upper and lower freezer baskets that glide out. I can look down and see clearly what is in my freezer. No more mystery food forgotten in my freezer. Spacious refrigerator section, above the freezer. Beautiful glass shelves--compartments thoughtfully organized. A delight to open and use.
