Jesse White    1967 - 1989  (died 1997, age 78)




Gordon Jump  1997 - 2003  (died a few months later, age 71)

In 2002, Maytag and Chevrolet joined forces to create a commercial

featuring both Maytag Repairmen and Chevy's new Impala.

The ad shows an Impala zig-zag through a highway filled with curves.

Inside the car, the apprentice repairman (who is driving) says to the veteran repairman (Gordon Jump),

"So you sure this is OK? What if someone calls?"

The two look at each other, laugh out loud, eat some jerky and continue to cruise the countryside


Hardy Rawls    2003 - (a former Mr. Goodwrench)

partnered with a younger, eager Maytag apprentice (Mark Devine)


In 2006, Maytag's rival, Whirlpool Corporation offered to buy the company for $1.7 billion.


Clay Jackson 2007

Well my brethren, we bleed Maytag Blue.  I'm afraid the condition is terminal.
