I think those were some of the best machines ever made. The only thing I ever changed on them was belts.
Well over the years I replaced the water inlet valve 3 times. The first time I got a used water valve free from the local Maytag repairman. Unfortunately he has passed on. And the third time I replaced it is now.
About 12 years ago I replaced the motor but kept the old one so I can rebuild it. The commutator and brushes need to be fixed. And I replaced the belt. Other than that, this has been a great washer.
