My son just got back from a 10 day backpacking trip in New Mexico. His
clothes were black with dirt.
After she washed them (in our 10 year old Magic Chef", my wife ran a load of
water and clorox on "gentle" to clean the washing machine.
I then found that water was leaking down into the basement, and found that
the washing machine was on "spin", but wasn't spinning. I turned it off, and
on. It slowly spun. It was partly full of water. I bailed most of the
water out and tried again. After that I turned it on again. After humming
for a few minutes it suddenly started working properly.
I put the towels in that I used to clean up the leak and tried a load of
laundry. It ran okay for a few minutes, and then started humming on moving
sluggishly. I moved it to "spin". It was like the last time.
What do I do?
Is it worth calling a repairman in on a 10 year old machine?
