Two long vertical rows of buttons like that is new to me. Last year of that style?

Definitely an early 90s washer. I have a similar but higher end model to that. It has the short stroke orbital transmission, but still a true Maytag. Excellent performer.

the two long rows of buttons are easy to explain left row is water levels (low, medium, large, and ex. large) and the right row is your temp selections which you have 4 comb. (H/W, H/C, W/C, C/C)

I would settle for the Washer being H & Dryer being M!

Unusual to see lid instructions under there like that... Around the time I bought my late-Mom's 1992 Maytag washer, I had a brochure that I don't remember that washer or any like that being in--Heck, you can give me just the OPPOSITE, as I've seen that Hotpoint dryer very recently at my wife's friend's trailer...! It's a TOL, model...

Don't those two look like orphans in that bare white room?

Lack of Delicate/Gentle cycle and speed selector

Is this a one-speed washer?

Yup - one speed motor.   I never caught the bug for these washers with the orbital transmission, just didn't do much for me until they added the auger (Load Sensor agitator) to make turnover of larger loads more effective.  Still a good washer, if limited in options. 


You can see where the washer has likely been carted from the front by the dents at the lower part of the front panel.  Oops.   They do look lonely and unloved in the bare room, a pretty bleak existence.

Here's the top of the line with mechanical buttons from that era. Last step up was electronic control.

I love the stone/tile floors. Probably a snow bird condo--just a place sort of like when a house is not a home.
