Answer: 
Our black one is textured kinda like vinyl or naugahyde. Ours was delivered while I was at work, so my wife accepted it. The delivery guys brought it in and hooked it up. I believe it came with door change instructions. Although they are not hard to do. Ours requires a philips and a torx screwdriver. It was full and cold when I got home. Sorry I can't be of more help.

Answer: 
Prospectivebuyer,
You can remove the ice maker on this bottom freezer refrigerator. It does come factory installed, so it is not possible to order without. But, whether the ice maker is installed or not, does not affect the performance of the refrigerator. Thank you for viewing this Maytag bottom freezer refrigerator.

How far from the wall does the right side of this refrigerator need to be in order to open the doors wide enough to remove the shelves for cleaning?

The opening in my kitchen is 36 inches wide between the counter and a solid wall. The wall is to the right of the refrigerator. I realize that I could change the direction of the door swing but for convenience sake, I would like the door to swing from right to left.

Answer: 
Judy,
the door swing is factory set to open from left to right with the hinges on the right side. Having 36" in width should be adequate to be able to open the doors enough to put the shelving out. Thank you for viewing this Maytag home appliance.

Customer Reviews

Rated 4.3 out of 5 by 140 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Good Value The refrigerator much larger than I anticipated since I was not able to see it in my local store. The freezer offers a lot of efficient storage space. The door bins are easy to remove. The ice maker is loud enough to startle someone watching tv in the next room. Hopefully we will get used to this. The refrigerator did take nearly a full day to cool down but seems to be maintaining its temperature. The freezer cooled down within an hour. This refrigerator has an excellent set of features for the money. I am glad that I didn't buy a more expensive model. Since the website did not show interior photos of the freezer, I took some and uploaded them. I hope they are helpful February 16, 2012
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Nice fridge for the value This fridge has lots of space within! I love that both compartments have lights and separate thermostat settings (everything is cooled just right). The drawer in the freezer compartment could be better, but it does the job well enough. I do like that you could take it out to clean underneath if something should happen to leak. The fridge is a little awkward for trying to fit tall items without re-arranging and the top shelf then only becomes good enough for short items, but you can fit a 12 pack soda box under the deli drawer. The good news is, the door shelves & glass shelves are easily re-configurable; within a few minutes, you could have a new fridge layout. The ice maker works great. My only wish is that it came in a glossy, smooth black finish rather than a textured finish. Nice mid-range refrigerator, especially if you just don't want a standard freezer on top fridge. Don't forget to wipe the surfaces inside the fridge and freezer compartments down before using and if you don't hook up the ice maker immediately, lift the arm to the OFF position so it's not running without a water supply, otherwise it makes a lot of noise. The only noise I hear is when the water fills up and when the ice drops. (like someone turned on a hose quickly and later rolled yahtzee dice) I've only had the fridge a little over 2 weeks at the time of this review. I've also included 2 photos of the freezer since there is a lack of photos for this fridge, 1 is the whole freezer and how much space there is, the other shows the track on one side. The fridge photo is so you could see my config and how certain things fit within (gives a good feel for the interior size/space) October 9, 2012
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by I LOVE MY BOTTOM FREEZER UNIT BECAUSE I DO LESS BACK BENDING WE USE THE TOP OF THE FRIDGE MOST OFTEN, SO, LESS BENDING. MY BACK SAYS "THANK YOU MAYTAG FOR THE BOTTOM FREEZER UNIT". FOR FOLKS WITH BACK PROBLEMS, THE MAYTAG IS A "WINNER"!!!! , [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] June 26, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by The fridge is just fine. The fridge is doing very well, just have to get used to the bottom freezer. Always had one on top. The black matte surface doesn't show fingerprints or anything else. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] May 2, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Great value for price Read reviews on so many refrigerators! This one turned out to be a great pick. I didn't find the review that there was an "odor" that couldn't be removed held up - per instructions I immediately washed with mild dish soap - gone for good. Also do not find it to be noisy at all. But it's in a basement rec room and we're not there as much, say , as in our kitchen. Didn't want the ice maker (basement - water risk) and instructions for removing it were a cinch. Like the choice of a rounded door (great feature) since we set ours up close to a wall. Overall what we expected and we are very happy with the purchase (we've had it about a month now.) August 14, 2012
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by I've only had it for 2 weeks but so far, so good. Only real dislike is the fact that the light fixture/temperature control unit partially obstructs the top shelf. The unit is about 13.5" wide and hangs down 1.75" and if you want to put something like a Brita pitcher on the top shelf, you only have about 5" on either side of the unit to slide the pitcher in. Yes you could lower the top shelf even more, but then you're wasting space. April 22, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by This is a very good and very serviceable refrigerator. We wanted a somewhat smaller second refrigerator than the wonderful but old Frigidaire refrigerator we had. It doesn't have the fit and finish of the Frigidaire but appears after a month to be a quality product. Although we don't use it it comes with an ice-maker, a very nice feature for a refrigerator of this price. It is too early to determine efficiency of the product. January 1, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by So far so good Refrigerator was used to complete a home bar so the upper refrigerator was a must for me. The only thing to consider is if one is purchasing this as their primary home frig, be sure this will be large enough. Clearly large enough for a couple but if you have a large family I would suggest going up one size. Also this model has a swinging freezer door which is fine for me but if it was my primary frig I might prefer a drawer style freezer. Great value and so far trouble free (1 month). Delivery process was smooth and problem free. March 3, 2012
