I'll sell you a good used motor for $8.00 plus
shipping. I restore/repair Maytag wringer
washers for a living. Many parts for these
machines are NLA (no longer available) and
Maytag keeps raising their prices for parts still
available. Soon to come : Maytag wringer
washer replacement parts web-site.

call a matag repair shop, they either have the motor in stock or can have it in just a few days.

Matag is sort of like John Deere-it is amazing how many parts are available for old items they manufactured

I have one in my shed that works that you can have.
Wringers need to be replaced and there are two or three dings in the porcelain on the lid.
Other than that it is in great shape.
10 miles south of Burlington, VT.
Come get it...

Any competent electric motor/starter/generator/alternator repair shop should be able to repair/rewind or replace the motor from your washer.

I remember back around 48 or 49 that dad brought home a brand new one of those for Mom. Had a gasoline kick start engine.A couple of years later they replaced the gas motor with an electric as we had just electricity to our part of the country.Mom used it untill she passed away. Take your motor to an electric motor rebuild shop and they will fix you right up. pay a little extra to keep the original motor if you have to. Thanks for the memory.

There you go that is a good 50+ year sound. I think I am beginning to revert to my childhood.
