How to Install Trash Compactor Bag

How to Install the Bag on My Maytag Trash Compactor

Do not use any kind of bag other than those designed especially for use in your trash compactor. Before installing a new bag, make sure that the drawer side is securely locked and the container is clean and free of debris. 

  1. Place folded bag into the drawer.
  2. Open bag and pull top edges over the drawer top.
  3. Lock bag in place by pulling the four prepunched holes over the bag retainer buttons. Holes will expand over the buttons without damaging the bag.
  4. Press inside of bag against the drawer bottom, sides and corners for a smooth fit.
