The Maytag Repairman has recently been nominated for the Madison Avenue
Established in 1967, the Maytag Repairman has become an iconic marketing figure. The current character is played by Clay Jackson. The character first appeared on American TV screens in 1967.
Jackson is one of only four people to portray the Maytag Repairman since its creation: Jesse White retired from the role in 1988 after playing the part for 21 years; Gordon Jump retired in 2003 after starring in the role for 15 years; and Hardy Rawls took Jump's place in 2003 and played the part through 2007.
The winner of the contest will be announced Sept. 22 at a press conference at 10 a.m. EDT on the corner of 42nd and Madison Avenue. The program is conducted by Advertising Week in partnership with the Advertising Icon Museum, which opens in 2009 in Kansas City, MO, U.S.

A Quick Tip that will prove EXTREMELY important in extending the life of your washing machine.
If your washing machine is not level, it can vibrate strongly during the spin cycle. This can also happen if you have a large rug, towel or blanket that is bundling up on one side of the machine. It can also happen if you overload the machine.
But if your washing machine is not perfectly level--with all four legs touching the floor--it can bang and rock back and forth, and even begin to "walk" across the room. Keeping the machine level can really prevent a TON of damage.
This type of walking isn't good for the machine and may damage anything near the machine. Use the adjustable front and/or back leveling legs on the washer to adjust the machine to the proper height, then tighten the lock nut up against the body of the machine to keep the leg from rotating.
Most washing machines have "self-adjusting" rear legs. You set these legs by tilting the entire machine forward onto its front legs (with the rear legs 3 to 4 inches off the floor) and then setting the machine back down. The legs should adjust automatically.
If they don't, you may need to tilt the machine forward and rap on the rear legs with the handle of a hammer to loosen them--a procedure that's easier to accomplish with a helper.
Place a carpenter's level across the front of the clothes washer and check to see if the machine is level side to side. If it isn't, use adjustable pliers to rotate one front leveling foot or the other until the washer is level.
