About - Maytag M1TXEGMY[W]

The Maytag M1TXEGMY[W] is part of the refrigerator test program at Consumer Reports. In our lab tests, top freezer refrigerator models like the M1TXEGMY[W] are rated on multiple criteria, such as those listed below.


Temperature performance:
This combines results of tests measuring the accuracy of initial temperature settings along with how well a model 1) kept optimum temperatures in the refrigerator and freezer at the same time; 2) kept temperatures even throughout each compartment; 3) kept temperatures constant despite changes in room temperatures; and 4) maintained set temperatures even with very high room temperatures.

Energy efficiency:
This reflects electricity consumption (based on our tests) per cubic foot of measured usable storage space. For example, two refrigerators with the same energy cost per year may have different energy efficiencies -- the unit with more storage space being more efficient.

Noise:
Noise level was measured when the compressor started up and during steady running. Subjective judgments by a panel of listeners supplemented our noise-meter readings.
About This Brand

One of the Whirlpool brands, Maytag is a major player in the bottom-freezer section of the market. The company was one of the first to introduce a French-door model with an external ice-and-water dispenser and a cabinet-depth model with an external dispenser.

Comment:
Purchased to fit the space and I wanted a top freezer. 12 months and 2 weeks the fan for the freezer quit. Was told by service Need to have a heater installed in drain tube, which he did. 8 Months later now the heater for the defroster has died. So did I buy a warrantee, no I had hopes something you buy lasts more than 12 months. NEVER AGAIN A MAYTAG.
How long have you owned it:
More than six months
Bottom Line
No, I would not recommend this to a friend.

Comment:
The first thing I noticed is that it had an interior that was virtually identical to a friends Westinghouse that she bought seven years ago. Then I was told that Maytag isn't Maytag anymore, it was sold off. Then I noticed that the freezer doesn't work nearly as well as my beat up old 20+ year old Kenmore did. I have it on next to the coldest setting and ice cream is soft. I bought this particular model because it fit the space I have in my kitchen. I would not buy this again, but I'm very glad I bought the reasonably priced 5 year warantee from Lowes when I ordered this refrigerator. I'm seriously thinking about putting this one somewhere else as a spare and buying a different model for the kitchen.
How long have you owned it:
One-to-three months
Bottom Line
No, I would not recommend this to a friend.
