Washer score!

Posted by annkh (My Page) on

DH and I bought a Maytag washer and dryer 20 years ago, when we found out we were having twins. Over the years we have had repairs done on both - we are blessed with a wonderful appliance repair company nearby.

Over the weekend, the washer leaked water all over the floor. Monday afternoon, Repair Guy came out and fixed it, for $168 (total - parts + labor + service call).

If I can get a few more years out of the old girl, I'll be a happy camper!

Great! If only the kids were that easy to take care of.

I grew up with Maytags. They certainly don't make them like that anymore.

RE: Washer score!

Some machines are worth every penny of their repair costs. What I wouldnt give to have the Maytag 712 pair back we once had, though the dryers Maytag made all the way up till Whirlpool took over were very good.

RE: Washer score!

The only company that comes closest to the old maytags is Speed Queen. Traditional belt driven top load washers with no electronic sensors; just old fashioned dials and a full wash done in about 35 minutes.

RE: Washer score!

Oh yeah, and the best warranty out there. I'm not affiliated with Speed Queen, just a satisfied customer after 2 months of ownership. We'll see in the long haul.
