I have heard great things about the old Maytags but do the old Whirlpool washer and dryers have a good rep as well? I grew up not far from there. I have been trying to find the old Maytags like the above but would like to get a matched set.

Whirlpool, who also built Sears Kenmore washers and dryers for over 60 years, is a very good brand. They sold zillions, so lots of them are on the market still, and lots of parts are still available.

The washers are darn good and solidly built, various ones are from low-end up to the most options avaialable at the time.

The dryers are nearly indestructible--and also available with no options or all the bells and whistles you can think of. Any of those with the lint filter at the rear right of the top of the machine, parts are available, they are efficient, well-built dryers.

With Maytag, do some searching in the "searchilator" here on this website---Yes the washers have a well-deserved reputation for long-lasting, sturdy design. The dryers are solid performers, but check before you buy----the "x06" have a VERY small drum, while the "X08" series are a tremendous enlargement in size.

There are a lot of different opinions here, more folks will also post and you can search through the site for more knowledge--
