Default Maytag Gears, What are these?

Found these while cleaning out my shop. What do I have ??
#1 has 2 -10050 cast on it, 4 3/4" outer diameter, 3/4" inner diameter, 2 1/4" eccentric.

#2 has 2 - 10052 cast on it,_ 7" overall length, 5/8" offset in arm, 1" dia hole on arm, 2 1/4" opening on end that fits offset shoulder of #1.

#3 has 2-10049 cast on it, compound spur gear, 4 3/4" outer diameter, 3/4" inner diameter, other is 1 1/2" gear.

Gears have Maytag script letters & appear to be NOS parts.

What you have there is my FRUSTRATION! I just tore down my washer to find 'these' gears with teeth broken off. They may be NLA. Your gears are about 95% identical down to most of the digits of the part #. But the tooth count is wrong. SO CLOSE!

Point is..
I have no need of these items, just hoping someone else is interested in them.
Do you know about what model washer or year they were used?

Marvin, I have an old washer parts book. I'll look in there this evening to see if they show up in there.

Regards, Kevin

Thanks, my parts book starts with the model 80 & 90 washers. I feel these gears may be older than that.

Marvin,
The gears you have are for automatic washer transmissions. What model of wringer machine are you needing gears for ? I have some gears for wringer washers and may have what you need. The 2- numbers indicate automatic washer parts, 3- is dryer parts. Most wringer parts will be stamped with a K prefix but in some cases even if a part has the k prefix it may be an A- number with another part installed with it such as a gear that has a shaft pressed into it. The A prefix indicates an assembly.

Parts are after 1948. But they sure look older than that. Would have to be one of the first models of automatic washers.

I am not sure these are wringer washer parts, they may be early automatic. MY washer is made in 1989, but the gears and action in it are identical right down to the shaft and gear diameters. However my tooth count is a bit different. And the part numbers are literally 1 digit off. My gears are sintered but these are cast. I was hoping these were just older identical gears made when casting was the preferred process.

My washer isn't exactly a collectible antique but it's one of the last of the bulletproof Maytags. It lasted 29 years and it has only needed a set of belts, the drain pump, and a drain valve, till now. I should of tore it down and done a preventative maintenance on it, but a pin broke and fell into the gears, ruining them. My mother gave me this set about 15 years ago when she moved, she just wanted a new set with the new house. These were her second Maytags, the others were at least 25 years old when they left.(Bought in the 60's) They still worked but they had some issues. Hey a mom can get a new washer every 25 or 30 years right?. Naturally when she gave me this set she went and got another set of Maytags. Her new washer was dead within 3 years. She is now on her 3rd washer since then, getting about 3 years each out of them. I might have to start hunting down old Maytag washers and dryers behind big box stores, ETC. You know I'd go out and buy a new one, if I knew it would last. Speed Queen seems to be the last of the good ones, maybe. About $1000 new.

These gears were used in the early design helical drive transmission, early 1960's vintage. 2-10050 is called Pitman Gear, 2-10052 is called Pitman and 2-10049 Intermediate Gear. The 2-10049 was used until the Power Fin Adgitator was introduced late 1960's (?). 2-10050 was replaced by 2-10670 late 1960's, I have one of these N.O.S. if anybody needs one (cheap).
