Maytag refrigerators typically feature a stainless steel outer design with two or three doors. The traditional freezer-on-top design has the door handle on the right or left side. The bottom-freezer-door model exceeds standard energy efficiency requirements. This model also allows users to view food in the freezer without bending. The side-by-side and French door models feature a built-in ice and water machine.
Maytag started out as a family-owned business, and the main product was washing machines. In the late 1890s, the company successfully developed a safer washer, which was called a threshing machine at the time. In the 1900s, Maytag continued innovating the washing machine and created the Pastime model, its first electric-motor washer. Gradually, Maytag branched out into designing and manufacturing other home appliances, such as dishwashers, ovens and refrigerators. The Maytag repairman, a long-time advertising character associated with the brand, has also evolved over the years. As of 2014, the Maytag repairman character is younger and more energized than the original.Learn more about Refrigerators & Freezers
