The repair guy came over and gave me an estimate
of $250.00 to fix the seal and put in a new belt.
That seems like a lot, but I don't know. If it
really costs that much, I'll just get a new washer.
Is it a stainless steel interior? if it isn't, i don't think it's
worth fixing. dishwashers with a stainless interior are generally
more well made. I got a used bosch for that price(250$). It's a
champ, and very quiet.
While not specifically stated, it sounded like the OP means a clothes
In any case, $250 is about half, maybe more, of the purchase price of
a new machine. Not counting the over the moon kind of appliance (Sub
Zero, ect.) When that happens to me, it's time for a new one.
With one exception - if I know exactly what to fix and can do it and
the availability and cost of parts is good, then I'll try fixing.
Put it in a jig and run it thru the table saw a few times. If this
doesn't fix it, swing the drill press table out of the way and drill
many holes in it.
If it still doesn't work, take it totally apart and see if there if it
is made out of any WOOD. If not, you must have posted it to the wrong
