Photo Maytag Washer ID

Hey all looking for the model # of this Maytag Washer. Just picked it up has an electric motor on it right now....with a flat belt drive....

Can I put a Maytag Motor on this washer...I know Maytag made a lot of Washer and the Same ones used the electric motor and the gas engine...I was thinking a model 82 would look good on here, but would have a problem starting her...

What is the paint job on this washer....seen gray like Navy ship on the drive gear housing....was the tub different as it look like bare metal????

The SN# 769010, does someone have the year for this one???

I got this one as I have Meat Grinder with the drive head, but the gear and handles are this will be a great fit....for my collection...

Can't wait to hear from all of you!!!!

Don't quote me here but I'm almost positive that the washer you have is a model 80. I don't know as much about washers as I do engines but I'm pretty sure, that is the model of your washer. Hope this helps.

Your washer is a model 80 or 82. Built from April 1922 to September 1927.

Yes you have a model 80 washer. Note that it has a flat belt drive, riveted tub, 80 series wringer and late 80 series base for electric motor. From Larry Benton's book "Maytag Conventional Washers Volume # 2" it show serial numbers 708,388 to 788,535 were made July, August and September of 1926. If you break these numbers down in to 3 periods of time it would seem your washer was built in September of 1926. There was a lot of changes in the model 80 series washers. First model had low post gyrator and a cast iron motor base. Three different tub styles were also used with the differences being in how hose was held in up position and shifter attachment to tub. The very latest ones used v belt drive. On the Multi-Motor washers with the model 82 engine, the starter pedal parts were part of the washer. Maytag had change over kits to update the the flat belt to v belt and to change from model 80 electric power to 82 gas engine and back the other way. The 90 and later wringers also could be bought to update the wringer. Looks like you have found on in good condition. The model 80 meat grinder was different then the later grinders in as the grinder was mounted on an L shaped plate.
