Whirlpool seeks new Maytag Repairman

Whirlpool Corp. is launching a nationwide search for someone to portray the Maytag Repairman — the lonely, iconic character that has represented Maytag for 40 years.

The Repairman has been under new ownership since Whirlpool purchased the Newton-based Maytag in March and announced that all Maytag’s Newton operations would close by the end of 2007.
The new Repairman could be a professional actor, an ordinary guy next door or even a real-life appliance repairman, Whirlpool officials said.

  1. Mike Vrecenar says:

    I would make an excellent Maytag Repair man. I am slightly overweight from not working very hard. Not good looking and not ugly and slightly balding. My laziness would make me the perfect repair guy.

  2. I am a appliance repair person, and I hope I will never be a full time maytag repair person.
    they should just stop makeing that crap, I hope whirlpool turns it around. Its no longer true about maytag.
