Some of the parts used in old Maytag washers can be used on similar models. In addition, the screws, bolts and other components used to construct the machine can be reused.
Because washing machines and other large appliances take up so much space, it can be difficult to store a large supply of used parts. However, some online dealers specialize in used parts and might be willing to purchase model-specific components. Some manufacturers also use similar parts in different models, although this information can be difficult to find, especially for older appliances. Even after useful parts are removed from a washing machine, much of the metal scrap is reusable, especially if the machine contains copper.
