I would check on that warantee Kugie. If that is the old orbital style
transmission, it used to be guaranteed for much longer. If I recall
correctly, it was at least a 10 year warranty on the transmission.
If you need a new transmission, I would contact Dasa Manufacturing in
Ontario. They rebuild washing transmissions. If you don't live in
Canada, Dasa would probably know who does the same kind of rebuilds in
'DASA Manufacturing Ltd.' (http://dasa.ca /)
I've used their rebuilt transmissions before and they seem to be as good
as the OEM part, or at least that's been my experience. They're also
considerably less expensive than the OEM parts.
Also, you should be aware that if this is a Maytag orbital transmission,
there are two different kinds; the "short" transmission and the "long"
transmission. The difference is in the length of one of the shafts on
each side of the orbital transmission housing. Make sure you order the
kind you need. Best to take a picture of the existing transmission and
take it down to any Maytag repair depot and they should be able to
identify what kind it is for you.
