Craigs List Free!!!
« on: February 26, 2014, 08:40:40 PM »
Nice Maytag.  Almost virgin, it looks like it has never been used.  Given away free on Craigslist. 

How old is it?

Any idea if it is worth anything?

It runs, but the rollers are kinda dried up. 

If I ever have a shop, it'll be a mascot.

Very nice looking, so you picked it up off of Craigslist for free?
Hope you find our site helpful.

I got it off a craiglist ad in Monterey.  The guy was moving and couldn't store it anymore.  He gave it to me 'cause I'm an appliance guy.

Thanks schleven, I did not think it was that old.  It is really in great shape.

If anybody is jealous, they can still buy wringer washers.  Here is one made in Saudi Arabia.

Great pic's,  love to see the old stuff in mint condition.  My son and me got in a mint condition one, with a seized pump, driven by the belt.   We ended up installing a newer style electric pump, and installed a on/off switch to activate it.   She uses it all the time.

 

Whats on your Christmas wish list this year?
