After all these years there's only one thing wrong with Mrs. Krane's Maytag: it's still avocado. SIt's not often we report that people have problems with our washers, but Mrs. Kathy Krane of Western Springs, Illinois, is an exception. , In all the time she's had her Maytag washer, she's only had one repair. The fact is, her washer shows no signs of giving out any time soon. And that's just the problem, because it's avocado. J Mrs. Krane didn't choose the color, her washer was a gift. Besides, back in the '70s, avocado was very popular. She always figured in ten, maybe twelve years, she'd have to replace it. Then she'd be able to choose a new color. Sorry, Mrs. Krane, but this isn't just any old avocado washer, it's a Maytag. We can't promise that every Maytag washer will last this long, but all our washers are built to last longer and need fewer repairs. B In her letter Mrs. Krane included some advice for anyone looking for a new washer: make it a Maytag. Better still, she suggests, just make it a plain white Maytag.
