Also I'm trying to locate a three solenoid water inlet valve for my white Maytag a700. Can't seem to find one anywhere was hoping someone on here might be able to give me some insight as to where I might locate one.

Hello Jason....and welcome to the club.....

well, unfortunately you just missed a pink dryer that was advertised for sale.....yeah, it was just the dryer, but would have been a start.....you never know, things pop up all the time.....we all wish for them in our backyard locations, but sometimes we have to travel or have them shipped.....its all part of the adventure.....


as for the valve, heres a link to a past thread.....apparently there is a part number change that will yield a replacement valve......


I think there is also a rebuild kit available too.....

Pink washer

Hey thanks yogitunes. Yeah I actually seen that dryer on eBay and have been watching it. But decided against getting it because it would've been a 2000 mile round-trip for me. But I almost did Bid on it.

you may have missed the post by Kenny, as you both posted at the same time.....

his is pink....and restoration is right up your alley.....

just a thought......


tip from personal experience, when your not looking for something, is when it pops up.....but don't give up hope, your will find your dream set....

Kenny's set is a great starting point, and the dryer can be converted to electric if you are so inclined. While they aren't a 700 series set, the 142 is what the 700 became.

There is also another pink set that may be for sale soon, and not too far up in Minnesota, that has been restored.

Good luck!

Ben

Hi Ben, I never knew you could convert a gas dryer to an electric. Interesting. Is there a thread or a vid the shows the process?

1958 TOL MT Gas Dryer [ pink ]

combo52's profile picture

I have a dryer like Kenny Goatfarmers that is nearly restored [ already done mechanically, belts, front seals, cleaned and reassembled ] I was in the process of converting to electric ignition, the parts are all here that I want to get rid of [ found another MT HOH dryer for the museum and do not need two.

 

I don't want any more than the parts I put into it.

 

I also have a top and lid for a pink MT washer like Kenneys that you can have.

 

You or someone else please contact me otherwise when I have time I am going to just take the good parts from the dryer and scrap to rest.

 

John L.

JOHN / ELECTRIC IGNITION...

newvista58's profile picture
Hi John,

The electric ignition you mentioned,
would that fit a Maytag 701 dryer?
I would rather have electric ignition
in place of the standing pilot.

If it would fit, and you end up
parting this out, would you please
let me know? Thank you.

Louis
