If you buy Maytag, buy extended warranty
I purchased Maytag bottom-freezer-drawer fridge #MBL2256KES5 a little over a year ago online from HomeDepot.com. Top part stopped cooling 26 days past warranty date. 26 DAYS!
Really? This is the best they can do? Yes, it is. Oh, they did offer to schedule a repair - with what must be a very-very-very-busy Maytag repairman, not the "lonely" one you may have seen on their ads.
Now that I'm reading various websites, I see our scenario is actually better than average, with most having all sorts of problems with Maytag during the one-year warranty period. (Didn't buy the extended warranty since consumers' advocate groups consistently recommend against it.) Shame on me for not paying attention to these published horror stories BEFORE I bought. I will never, ever consider buying a Maytag appliance again and will discourage everyone I know from doing so.
