Stan, Wilmington, NC. We purchased a Maytag French Door bottom freezer Stainless Steel model MFD2561KES unit with the extended warranty from Home Depot. Shortly after delivery we started hearing a noise probably from the compressor that now lasts about 3 seconds each time the compressor starts. Recently we called the extended warranty number and they told us that it would need to fail before they would do anything. Today I read about all the Maytag problems and have decided that if it stops working I will not even consider fixing it. No more Maytags for us.
