Thumbnail Image of Download The Maytag Dependability Story
This is another wonderful and rare piece of history. It was produced to explain the many proceeses involved in producing an automatic washer, dryer and combination washer-dryer utilized at Maytag's Newton, IA factory. This large format book (8.5 x 9) is filled with 20 rare full size photos of the major processes in the factory along with full descriptions of what you are seeing, such as:

Maytag wash baskets must be properly balanced so they will spin smoothly during the water extraction phase of the cycle.

The balancer, shown in this photograph, will indicate on a dial just where the additional weights must be added to the balancing ring to provide the specified smooth spin. No guess work here; every Maytag tub is scientifically balanced.

MAYTAG DEPENDABILITY means accuracy and precision in every step of the manufacturing process.

Thumbnail Image of Download Laundry Equipment Electric Motor Service Manual
From the first page: The motor service manual has been prepared by Westinghouse Laundry Service with a threefold purpose. First - to explain the motor thoroughly so you will better understand its operation. Second - to show you how to use this information to diagnose motor failures and third, to make use of the diagnosis by repairing the inoperative motor rather than replacing it.

Studies indicate that nearly 70% of all laundry equipment fractional HP motor failures can be repaired (and put back into service in the appliance) on the first call to the customers home. These same studies show that, more often than not, the inoperative motor is replaced rather than repaired and that it requires more than one call to perform the job.

This book is not intended to be a one volume course on all fractional horsepower electric motors. Its intent is to help you to better perform your job as it applies to laundry equipment drive, pump and fan motors. Failures that occur on laundry equipment motors and which can economically and profitably be repaired are such parts as terminal boards, end bells, switches, thermoguard and capacitors (when they are used). There are also a number of adjustments that can be made to get the motor back into operation.
