Let us now praise Maytag

The other day, sifting through a kitchen drawer where I keep my appliance manuals and whatnot, I happened on those for my Maytag washer and dryer (above).

I was gobsmacked when I looked at the purchase receipt: it was from August 16, 1986 (below).

32 years? These machines have done what they're supposed to do without ever needing service for thirty-two years?

How is that possible?'

Tell you one thing: there is NO washer/dryer for sale today that will still be functioning at all — much less properly and without a service call — in 2050.

You can take that to the bank.
