Bye Samsung :(

Yup you washed my stinky bike clothes for 10 years and all other things that stunk. And right when the 10 year warranty was due you died on me. Replacing with a LG but have to wait two weeks. Good thing Iím looking after neighborís house and I can use their washer. Should I use it for target practice? Or a redneck table? Or just let Home Depot haul it off when the new one finally arrives? Storage? An addition to the junk collection? Iím going on a beer run and going to smoke some pig later on. I donít think Iím going to to ride in muggy 101 degree weather today. Getting heatstroke is below average. Maybe I will fill aluminum cans up with water and target practice with my Daisy BB gun .. Dang Iím Bored!

Hello... Maytag. Why Samsung, Why LG? Better yet, how about good old fashion SpeedQueen.
Why are you, a Texan, buying offshore crap, that apparently doesn't do the job?

You brag about John Deere... and then buy "Lucky Goldstar?" Hondo, Hondo, Hondo... take thee behind the woodshed!

Top 5 Washing Machines Made in USA
  • Whirlpool. Whirlpool Corporation was founded in 1911, at Michigan, USA by Louis Upton and Emory Upton. ...
  • General Electric (GE) General Electric (GE) is a US-based multinational company formed in New York and headquartered in Boston, Massachusetts. ...
  • SpeedQueen. ...
  • Amana Corporation. ...
  • Hotpoint.
BTW I would never buy a Hotpoint refrigerator or washer... stove, sure. Also, not all Maytag is made in America... but Lowes and HD carry models that are.

I bought a new Maytag washer and dryer about 1.5 years ago from Home Depot. Both came with the ambiguous sticker shown below on both of them. No mention elsewhere on the machines where they were actually made. The new gas dryer is okay, but the new washer is a gear clunking machine and is noisier than the Admiral machine it replaced.

I learned that the Maytag group was purchased by Whirlpool AFTER having purchased a matched set of their Industrial Strength Anniversary Issue some mess or another high capacity washer and dryer. It broke twice within the first year while under warranty...I still had to pay the labor. It is broken, again, now and will run forever if you don't set a timer. I had a Roper contractor grade that I so wish I had kept. Owned it for 15 years and only had to replace a tub seal.
As a side note the Maytag oven we purchased also broke twice in two years, only once under warranty, have replaced the oven element twice, and the door handle is basically epoxied on now cause the handle randomly wants to fall off.

^All of these appliances are under 7 years old. The issues presented within months of ownership.
Pass on Maytag. (I'm not going to talk about my POS Samsung fridge)

We got a new Maytag about 2 years ago... also from HD. Giant 5.0 cu ft model... yes you can wash sleeping bags in it, and other large loads. No center spindle. Wife was disappointed at first when she tried to do several large heavy towels at once...

"It doesn't work... just cycles and cycles."
"OK, what setting did you use?"
"Normal"
"Uh, see this linen setting... try that."

Has worked perfectly every time.

My wife has this strange quirk (I love her, so don't get me wrong) She wants all the bells and whistles... and then just wants to just push "start." She never sets the dryer for the load (permanent press, colors, etc) All wash gets the same manual setting. (hot, rough, spin fast) And she never uses cruise control... "Don't like it." I keep telling her they make stuff for her... IE Speed Queen; but she wants bells and whistles... Oy! (She has never read the 450 page manual for her fancy car... )

Our Maytag has the vertical agitator. It's just for show, since the splines on it don't go all the way to the bottom.

When you load up a large load, the fabric will get up high enough to engage the splines. But once the fabric gets wet, it all sinks below the splines and the fabric only gets rubbed around on the bottom like a modern machine with no vertical agitator.

I feel hoodwinked, I tell ya.

Now if my old 2006 fire breathing 90hp If it doesn’t start this evening during its checkup I will, be very very sad.. Now for you 250 Yahama snobs out there and you know who you are. I get to the fishing hole just 5 minutes later But yeah my friend has a 250 Yahama and I admit it’s a sweet ride at 75mph if I can go 45mph I’m lucky, it’s getting FRIKIN hot and this summer I’m going to get on the water fishing and snorkeling.Power washed the old boat and letting the sun do the drying. I’m itching to do some fishing.



The toll is a cold 6 pack.


Cold beer break. The locals say the fishing is great right now.

YES! later on will post a pick of what we call the boneyard. In a remote corner of my place where it is hidden it has all kinds of spent equipment that gets picked. It’s a system here we all share parts a neighbor a few weeks ago got a hard to find power washer part from the boneyard. The system works..

Bad Azz! Love the video especially the MILF those jet driven boats are awesome they were going places I wouldnít dare because it would be some major $ when the lower until gets sheered off. My family missed PA when we had to move on. I cruised the GAP back in 2017 it was awesome. The Susquehanna known for its smallmouth bass. And smallmouth bass pack a punch those fish can pull. Now I got the fishing bug!

That would be cool. I donít know how do make it into an aquarium. I have seen old fashion gas pumps made into aquariums and that was ingenious. A washer converted into an aquarium would be one of a kind.

Lessee... front loader... is it water tight? if so, find the drain pump out line and cap it off, or valve it. Then find the water inlet and fill it. Kinda big for such a tiny window... but hey, you can put flowers on the top.

Downsides... this thing has had soap in it for years... not good for fish. And somehow you need to rig a filter pump and bubbler. Often the tops of these washers opens up for service... so you may be able to access things that way. Oh and to ensure seal, you need to find the latching solenoid and at least manually engage it.

This may be at least a 2 six pack project.

The bus sitting in the field between Castroville and Hondo, Texas off Highway 90 is a shrine to Ms Garza who drove bus number 7 for 50 years. Taking kids to school rain or shine and on the very rare occasion snow A nice garden is planted next to the bus she drove for years. She passed away back in the 90s but everyone remembers her.

You can buy those without the coin system, too. I got one at Lowes, cost me about $700 and its a blessing to use. Simple controls, washes a load in 20-25 minutes (longer if you want more wash time), no fancy settings. Perfect.

In answer to your original question. Get them to take it away when they bring the new one and it'll get recycled. 7 years is how long they keep parts for washing machines and the like generally, might be 10 years because you have a 10 year warranty. But I bet there are no OEM parts for it now, unless there is some cross over with a newer model. Good work on getting a front loader. They do a much better job of washing and use about a quarter of the water. Ours is an 8kg (17lbs?), The sink is a 10 gallon one, you can leave the plug in the sink on a full load and it doesn't fill it up after a full cycle. I like ones with a hot water inlet hose, hot water is cheaper than heating cold water on the domestic tariff where I am.
