The Maytag Company was founded in Iowa in the late 1800s as a farm equipment manufacturer. By the 1920s, Maytag was one of the leading producers of washing machines. As of 1927, Maytag had produced more than one million washing machines. Following World War II, Maytag began producing other household appliances like refrigerators. In 1986, Maytag acquired Magic Chef and began offering a full line of home appliances. Other brand names owned by Maytag are Admiral, Amana, Hoover vacuums, Jade and Jenn-Air. In 2006, Whirlpool Corp. acquired Maytag Corp. and integrated the two giant appliance companies.

Maytag currently produces several different lines of washing machines, including: Epic Front-Load Washers, Neptune Washers, Atlantis Washers and their basic washing machines.

Maytag Epic Front-Load Washers are stylish, yet solid. They are constructed of a solid steel baseframe to provide support even when washing heavy loads. This Energy Star rated design saves money on monthly electric bills. QuietSeries Sound Insulation reduces vibration and noise at the same time it keeps loads balanced.

Maytag's front-loading Neptune line are among the largest-capacity washers on the market. It is big enough to wash a King Size comforter. This high efficiency line of washing machines is Energy Star rated.

Top-loading Atlantis Washers have an extra-large 3.2 cu.ft. capacity. Maytag innovations HydroClean and TurboRinse combine to produce better cleaning results. A sloped-front cabinet makes for easy loading and unloading.

Maytag's basic washer line includes both top-loading and front-loading units. Most have super-size capacity up to 3.3 cu.ft. These models include features such as the DependableClean wash system that has a special agitator to create a four-part wash system to thoroughly clean your clothes. Bleach and fabric softener dispensers are integrated so that bleach and softener are released at precisely the right time for best results. An extended spin feature removes more moisture from clothes in the washer to help reduce drying times.

Maytag washers are among the most reliable and durable on the market today. Maytag has made its name in the washer business by building washers that you can depend on. Maytag is the first name in washers for a very good reason.
