Our faithful Maytag washing machine.

West Hartford, CT USA

I helped my mother pick out this Maytag automatic washing machine about 40 years ago. She gave it to us when she sold her house. It has been repaired only once, about 4 years ago when we replaced the control dial. Last year it strted leaking a littl water, but suddenly the leak stopped. This year a load got out of kilter and the washing machine toppled over off its stand onto the cement floor. No damage and it is still working fine. :)

They certainly don't make things like that now day. Super shot too with great lighting. V

Great story and shot of this excellent wash machine. Quality like this does not exist much these days. V

Can you imagine anything manufactured these days that would do as well for as long...and when it is done I'm sure there would be a museum somewhere that would be grateful for it...!!

They were built to last in those days :o)
