When I was in commercial laundry, I was responsible for about 3000 commercial maytag sets of washers and dryers. I did change quite a few pumps, however, that maytag, in my opinion, was absolutely the best washer ever made. People used to beat the hell out of those in apartments, but the machines held up GREAT! Better than GE's, the OLD Speed queens with the fluid drives (you old timers will remember those", and the old General Motors built Frigidare's , which were a nightmare. The belt drive whirlpools are a close second to the maytags, but I agree that the Maytags were the best.
