If you have an old Maytag (15 yrs old or more), it’s worth it to get it repaired no matter what the cost.
Your other option is to find another working old Maytag, and repair it when needed.
New washers, and dishwashers, combine “water saving” which is enviro b.s. with no-phosphate detergents to produce lousy results IMHO.
I have found a couple of 3.4 cu ft washers that are very basic and look like just a standard model. One is a maytag, the other is a whirlpool and both are around $450. I have to check the size of my current one this evening, but I am very tempted to just go with one of these anyway.
I am hearing nothing but bad about the new high efficiency models!
