National Geographic : 1980 Feb
In 1973, Mrs.Whatley challenged her Maytag Dryer to prove it's as good as we said. Five years later she wrote, cMy Maytag Dryer is doing great and we added a Maytag Washer and Maytag Dishwasher":' Mrs. Joyce Whatley was skep tical when she got her Maytag Dryer in 1973. "I will let you know in 5 years if your prod uct is as good as your advertis ing," she wrote from Irving, Texas. True to her word, she has written to say her dryer has made a believer out of her. With a young family, the laun dry never seems to end. But her Maytag keeps drying away, and it's only had one re pair through the years. She was so impressed that about a year after purchasing her dryer, she got a Maytag Washer and a Maytag Dish washer, too. Both are delights, states Mrs. Whatley. Left to right: Jon, 15; Jeff, 18; James, 14; Mrs. Whatley; her husband, Jerry; Jason, 19; Julie, 12; and Jake, the family dog. Maytag is the Official Dryer of the 1980 Winter Olympic Games. We don't say all Maytag Dryers will equal that record. But long life with few repairs is what we try to build into every Maytag product. lMAYAG THE DEPENDABILITY PEOPLE Nobody builds'em like Maytag. A My Maytag Dishwasher does a super job of getting dishes clean, and it's so easy to load, states Mrs. Whatley.
