I just found this website/story b/c my washer *just* "died" today.....the
motor seems fine, but it won't spin, so I thought I'd check into new ones -
just in case it's not worth fixing....... Anyway, hope the link/info helps.
If your washer is one of the Whirlpool types, it probably has a
direct drive arrangement. These couple the power through a rubber
drive block. It has probably failed (normal wear and tear). The
part is less than $10, the labor to get there , , , , ,
Here is some more information:
Keep the whole world singing. . . .
I don't know if you are looking for one machine that washes and dries the
clothes, or a stacking washer and dryer, however we have a Maytag Neptune
super stacker and love it! The washer is better than a full size top
loader, and the dryer is full size as well.
I've heard some noise about reliability problems with Neptunes, but we have
had no trouble.
