Default Maytag Motor Question

Do any maytag experts out there know if they ever made a DC motor for the washers? It would be fun to use my vintage 110V DC generator to run a washer at shows.
Thanks.

Yes Maytag sold washers with 110 DC motors. They also could be had in 220 volt DC, 32 volt DC as well as AC motors in 220 and 110 volt in 25 cycle, 30 cycle, 40 cycle , 50 cycle and 60 cycle versions. The 110 DC motor assembly was part number A-4066 that came with a K-994 pulley (3 inch with i/2 inch bore).

I have a 125 volt dc generator also and bought a bodine dc electric motor for my model 31 Maytag washer off Ebay they are black and look similar to the original motors.
I've seen one on Ebay recently

I think any make of motor of the proper DC voltage would be appropriate. AC motors of the early years were GE and Delco. Odd voltages, odd frequencies and DC were sourced from these two and several other manufactures. 1950's, and newer AC motors were also sourced from Westinghouse and Emerson. Maytag tried to always have two sources of parts they did not make themselves. This way if one of the companies could not deliver the part for some reason, strike or equipment problems, the other company could deliver the parts. This meant Maytag did not have to shut down due to lack of a part. Maytag did make almost every part for the washers except for the motors and lubricants. They molded most of their rubber parts also.

They didn't make the electric motors, but they did make engines, and good ones at that!
