Thanks for the ping. I had a washer repairman out on saturday and found out that my washer is on it’s last leg. Just dang, the current market for washers just sucks! The service dude was telling me that the gov’t mandates for efficiency has destroyed the washing machines and that most people hate the new models...

It reminded me of TGO’s statement, “they think we are smart enough to vote for them, but not smart enough to chose the right kind of washer.”

You can get some pretty inexpensive from the Sears Outlet stores. Good luck.

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’ve got another 6 or 7, 23-yr old Builder GE Appliances starting to “go south”, having already replaced old GE furnace w/ hi-eff 96 sear Amana and HD 2-T Amana AC, and Rudd state-of-the-art, point-of-use water hear, over past 3yrs. Others are rapidly coming due for replacement and the costs are going to be very costly, due to ‘Green Energy” mandates/regs/rules. Not much choice, though with EPA etc commies running the gov’t.

I don’t doubt that some of what he said may be true, but I’m still a little skeptical of what washing machine repairmen say—after all, their business is to repair your machine, and not to sell you a new one (usually).

About six years ago, my machine broke down. I didn’t want to replace it at first, so I called a repairman I found on the internet. Big mistake.

He came over and gave me an estimate of $250+ to fix it, and advised strongly that I repair it because “those new models are so inferior.”

Well, I let him do it, and no more than two weeks later, the machine broke again. He never answered my return calls. So I ended up forking over about $300 or so for a new machine, what I should have done in the first place.
