Customer Question
Looking for a maytag...

Looking for a maytag manual for model LA512 series 4 serial 156653 XC

Contractor's Assistant: Can you guesstimate how old your Maytag is? And just to clarify, what's the exact model?

Model LA512...it is old...it was used when i got it 12 years ago. possible 15-20 years old?

Contractor's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

Yes..however, i have already broken the drain connector which fit inside the hose.....might be the syphon break kit...? sorry...not an expert here.

Contractor's Assistant: Anything else we should know to help you best?

Welll i was trying to get the top off to check on a leak. It looks like one of the hoses in the back, but of course I complicated things when trying to move the machine out to work on it. thus the borke connector... so ow have two problems
