Maytag Washer and Dryer

Suzi AKA DesertDance Zone 9bJuly 8, 2013

There were commercials a while back about the poor, underworked Maytag repairman. Not much to do. He lazes around.........

In the early 70's we bought a Maytag washer and dryer.

In the 90's I had a problem, and called that lazy Maytag repair man. He came out and said, "Never sell these things. Only 3 things can go wrong!" Keep them till your dying day.

So now it's 2013, and the dryer wasn't beeping. Same story from the repairman. "These are gold. DO NOT GET RID OF THEM!"

Took him 5 minutes to fix the problem.

What I need is some of that porcelain paint to patch the chips!

Old isn't bad. Sometimes it's just better!

I had a Maytag Washer that was 35 years old, still worked great, & never had a repair.

I also had a very old Hotpoint gas dryer but quite often it would not light without fiddling with it.

So we replaced them both probably about 5 years with a "Matching Pair" of Maytag front loaders. Both have been trouble free.
