The Maytag under counter trash compactor is a perennial best seller due to its impressive list of features and reliability.
The reliability aspect of Maytag trash compactors is due to the commercial grade parts which Maytag use in their appliances. This is something that Maytag has been doing for over 100 years and Maytag products enjoy a reputation for dependability.
Maytag Trash Compactor 4″ Console
One of the most impressive features of the Maytag under counter trash compactor is its famous 4 inch console.
The console employs all the controls needed for quick and efficient operation of the machine, including the removable key knob which provides a safety aspect, especially if there are children in the household.
The air filter button controls the fan which moves air through the charcoal filter for odor removal. It can be activated even when the Maytag trash compactor is OFF.
There are two options for the Compact operation – either Normal or Solid. In the case of Solid (Locked), the compacting ram stays in the down position and so adds extra compacting to the trash when used for at least thirty minutes.
Maytag Trash Compactor Bag Removal
When the time comes for trash compactor bags to be removed and replaced, nothing could be easier than the arrangement on the Maytag trash compactor.
Slide out the trash compactor drawer and push the side lock latch downwards as shown. This allows the drawer to tilt for simple removal without the need for lifting, strain or stress.
