REPLACED THE MODEL #70 THE FIRST MODEL 80 WAS SERIAL # 219785. HOWEVER THE FIRST PRODUCTION MODEL 80 WAS SERIAL # 219920.WHILE THE MODEL 70 CONTINUED TO USE A " MILK STOOL" AGITATOR IN THE LID OF THE MACHINE. THE MODEL 80 SERIES INTRODUCED AN AGITATOR DRIVEN BY A RACK BAR UNDERNEATH THE TUB. THE MODEL 80 MACHINES CONSISTED OF A LOW-TYPE GYRATATOR. THIS HAD LEAKAGE PROBLEMS FROM THE WATER PRESSURE SO IN 1925 THE GYRATATOR WAS CHANGED TO A HIGH CENTER GYRATATOR SERIAL # 382877. SEE CHANGE RECORDS FOR THE FOUR TUB VARIATIONS. THE FLAT DRIVE TYPE BELT WAS CHANGED TO V TYPE BELT ON AUGUST 2, 1927 AN ARTICLE IN THE MAYTAG ELECTRIC MOTOR IN THE JUNE, 1927 PROFIT NEWS ASSERTED THAT MAYTAG USED THE GENERAL ELECTRIC MOTOR ON ALL THEIR MACHINES " EXCEPT IN A FEW CASE'S WHEN ODD FREQUENCY MOTORS CANNOT BE SECURED IN THE NECESSARY QUANTITY". THE "GYRAFOAM" WASHER USED THE G.E. TYPE AS SPLIT PHASE, ALTERNATING CURRENT INDUCTION MOTOR WHICH DIFFERED FROM CONVENTIONAL SPLIT PHASE INDUCTION MOTORS IN THAT THE SECONDARY MEMBER WAS MADE THE STATIONARY MEMBER KNOWN AS THE STATOR WHILE THE PRIMARY MEMBER WAS MADE THE ROTOR. THIS ALLOWED FOR GREATER DISSIPATION OF HEAT INHIBITING TENDENCY FOR THE MOTOR TO OVERHEAT. THERE ARE FOUR DIFFERENT CROWNS USED IN THE MODEL 80 SERIES WASHERS- THE CROWN IS THE TRIM ON THE TOP OF THE TUB.THE MODEL 80 SERIES ALSO INTRODUCED IN 1927 THE NEW BALLOON WRINGER.
