How to Clean the Exterior

How to clean your  Maytag Refrigeration 

Each type of exterior finish requires a different method of cleaning.  Please see each finish type below for proper cleaning instructions. You can also reference your Use and Care Guide for additional information. 

Painted/Colored Refrigerator

  1. Wash the exterior enamel surfaces and gaskets with warm water and mild soap or detergent.
  2. Wipe and dry.

We recommend using a clean micro fiber cloth or a soft clean cloth to polish and dry.  Using paper towels may scratch and/or dull the clear coat of the painted door. Regular use of a good household appliance cleaner and polish will help protect the finish.

Black Stainless Steel Refrigerator

IMPORTANT: To avoid damage to the finish, do not use soap-filled scouring pads, abrasive or harsh cleaners, any cleaning product containing chlorine bleach, steel-wool pads, gritty wash cloths or paper towels. Using these types of products may scratch and/or dull the clear coat of the black stainless steel door.

  1. Wash the exterior surfaces and gaskets with warm water and mild soap or detergent.
  2. Wipe and dry.

 We recommend using a clean micro fiber cloth or a soft clean cloth to polish and dry.  Ensure to thoroughly dry all surfaces.
