Maytag Pro Pet Washer & Dryer Raffle

Sat. December 03, 2022

Start and end times vary depending on day.

Enter to win a Maytag Pro Pet Washer & Dryer! St. Joe Today (SJT) hosts a raffle December 3, 2022 - February 6, 2023.  Raffle tickets are just $5/ticket and are available for purchase at the SJT Welcome Center (301 State Street, St. Joseph, MI 49085). See an SJT staff member for more details on how to enter. Includes installation and set up. 

Must be 18+ to enter. Winner will be drawn at 12:00p on Monday, February 6, 2023. 


Key features of the Maytag Pro Pet System:

- Pet Pro option in washer: Unleashes additional water and a deep rinse to activate the Pet Pro Filter, which lifts and captures pet hair from clothes. Once removed, pet hair is caught in the built-in Pet Pro Filter for a clean you can see.

- Deep Fill option in washer: Provides extra water working with robust wash action to saturate loads, loosen stains and help soak away tough messes.

- Built-in water faucet in washer: Rinses, spot treats or soaks clothes right in the washer - no extra steps needed. After three hours, the water drains, leaving clothes ready for the wash cycle.

- Pet Pro option in dryer: Uses a no-heat, extended dry time to lift pet hair from clothes and capture it in the XL lint trap.

- Steam-enhanced dryer: Harnesses the power of steam to help prevent wrinkles and refresh clothes.

- Wrinkle Prevent option in dryer: Tumbles clothes for up to 150 minutes after the cycle ends to help prevent wrinkles from forming.


Thank you to Maytag for donating the Maytag Pro Pet System!
