DES MOINES, Iowa - Whirlpool Corp. completed its acquisition of Maytag Corp. on Friday and said it will immediately begin integrating the two appliance companies.

..."The addition of the Maytag, Jenn-Air, Amana and other brands, and the people who support those brands, will allow Whirlpool to more fully deploy our innovation capability across a wide assortment of high-quality products and services," said Jeff M. Fettig, Whirlpool's chairman and CEO. "The combined companies will create substantial benefits for consumers, trade customers and shareholders through continued development of innovative products, improved quality and service, and cost efficiencies."...

This is quite a stunner for those of us from the washing machine hobbyist and collector communities. Can you just imagine the hum of a Whirlpool motor, now combined with sleek Maytag lines and stylings? We knew that the rumours had been floating about for quite awhile now, but to actually see this day...well,..it's just a little bit emotional...

Some say that collecting washing machine motors, and thinking about the new chassis possibilities coming out, is a calling of sorts. I just say that God touched me, in the head, with such a gift.
