      [Webinar] Appliantology Workshop   11/09/2017

      Information is the name of the game in the appliance repair trade today. Appliantology is a powerful information tool for the professional appliance repair technician. But just like with any of the more capable tools in your tool bag, many of the more powerful features are hidden from you unless you "read the manual." Ugh! Who wants to do that? Well, this is one time when you don't have to! In this webinar, Team Samurai will personally walk you through the site and show you many of the useful and powerful features that even long-time users probably never knew existed.

Maytag washer and dryer

Hi everyone.  I picked up a Maytag model #142 and it's mate, dryer model #641C this past week.  Both are in very good condition but need a thorough look over.  

 

I'm trying to obtain their service manuals and or parts list for these two appliances.  I understand that parts are scarce but I have read that later models used the same parts.  Any help would be appreciated.  Thanks

I think parts are readily available for those models.  Belts, rollers, felt, seal, motor, pump, elements or burner parts.  If I can find them down here in Costa Rica I'm sure that parts select will have them.

Great machines. These were made when the Maytag repairman supposedly had nothing to do... I wonder why we don't see similar commercials today? I also wonder why we don't wear bow ties and those snazzy uniforms anymore?
