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

Let me check-- ill be back

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

I would like to try if it s possible but it s gas

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

It s new but in the sense that we recently installed it but it sa an old model.. ill be back with the model number --
