About the icons: The beer is tip link, if a tech saves ya some money buy em a 6 pack. The small green square=personal message. The green dot is a link to my web page on appliance repair and other general BS I love to post. The letter sends me email.
I love fan letters! LOL

Hello and welcome!

I found the link to the serbvice repair manual to be dead.

Some things have changed recently with a lot of the maytag and whirlpool service manuals.

I need to go through some of the links on this site and repair them yet.

I have set up a second site for just service manuals that you maybe interested in at http://appliancedigest.com

Hope you find our site helpful.
