If you're going to part it out, then I'd suggest saving everything and selling all the parts that you don't need/want. There might be someone out there trying to restore an old Maytag but the tub is rusted through and he or she needs a new one, or maybe the agitator is broken or the cabinet is damaged.


Basically, just trash nothing. Parts for these things are getting increasingly more difficult to come by, and donor machines like this are what allows them to still be serviceable. Who knows, maybe someone can fix that transmission.
