My neighbor's elderly aunt passed away recently and the contents of her house are being distributed among her relatives. The neighbor's current washer and dryer are a 15 year old Hotpoint washer and an older Kenmore dryer. Both work fine and he and his wife are satisfied with them. However, if they wish to pick them up, they can have the aunt's matched Maytag "Quiet Plus II" set. Nobody seems to remember how old they are, but they are in mint shape.

Does anyone here know when Maytag used the "Quiet Plus II" name, and if they're good quality traditional Maytags or the later Amanatags? He doesn't own a truck so if he gets them he'll have to pay to have them delivered across the city, which he is willing to do if they're good machines.

Thanks to those who answer!

My 1997 Dependable Cares

are "Quiet Plus II"s, and they have been very good.

I bought in 1995. I have never had a problem with mine. I will assume the Quiet Plus II are newer than mine.

Quiet Plus II

I have a TOL 9806 matched pair, worked perfect since new. Will keep them forever!

Thanks very much guys . . .

I've passed this information along to my neighbor and I think he'll end up getting them. He's going to check the model numbers just to be sure. The nice thing is that his aunt lived alone for the entire time she had the machines, so they have been very lightly used.

BTW Emilio, my neighbor's name is Emil!

Wonderful picture Emilio. When I got internet in 1997 these machines were on the Maytag site. I started browsing American websites with laundry equipment, I was totally fascinated by these machines. A lot happened since!

Thank you, Emilio!

I have the exact same models. I love them almost as much as if they were human.

Thank you for posting.

I have the gas heated dryer. I love the end-of-cycle chime, and have been known to use the Permanent Press cycle and the extended no-heat tumble, just to hear the chime. :)

Loved the indicator lights!

I passed up this same TOL washer behind Lowes a couple of years ago, went back later in the day and it was gone. There was another lower-end model of this era behind the store today, but it was beat to hell and back so I left it.
