Comment:
Mine was delivered 10/30/2014. The doors are extremely hard to open. The surface is impossible to clean. It appears to have oil like stains. <br />This is the frustrating part. I called customer repair. took almost two hours before I was able to get anyone. They asked for the model # and the serial number. I asked where it was located. They said on the door. I could not find it. The rude man kept insisting I couldn't see it. He told me to call back when I found it and hung up. I looked everywhere on that refrigerator for well over one half hour. Could not find it.<br />I called back held another long time. Finally I asked for a supervisor. He said he had absolutely no way to find my number. It was the responsibility of the seller. The seller said it was shipped direct from Maytag on their trucks. Think twice.
How long have you owned it:
A month or less

Comment:
There is a replacement part for this issue through Maytag customer service part # W106119951 called a p-trap drain tube kit. Maytag will supply the part, but installation must be performed by their certified technician, and the cost of service is the responsibility of the consumer. Nice. I'm expecting at least a couple hundred dollars since the entire freezer area has to be disassembled.
How long have you owned it:

Comment:
We selected this model out of 2 options with the dimensions needed in our kitchen remodel. Consumer Reports had favorable rating but I've now learned to double check the Company Reliability rating to make my final selections. Even with good marks from CR - if the company doesn't stand behind their product a higher percentage of the time- you're in for trouble. Shortly after the 1 year warranty expired, our fridge began accumulating sheets of ice under the baskets in the bottom freezer. I called Home Depot where we bought it & was told, Dang, guess you should have paid for the extended warranty. It will cost between $100-$200 to pay a technician to come out & diagnose the problem. Fortunately, I've come across a very helpful site where many other consumers have had this same problem. We're going to try these suggestions: http://www.fixya.com/support/t14104592-water_in_bottom_freezer. Will report back once we check it out.
