Question about Washing Machines
Your old Maytag is a much better machine than the new Maytag's, but replacing the drum bearing and seal is a somewhat expensive and rather difficult job, requiring a couple special tools. Not usually a do it yourself job. Unless you really love that machine, it's time for a new one. The average life of a washer is about 9 years. Look into the front load models which use much less water and spin out over twice as fast as your old top load machine. LG is the top rated by consumer reports, but you don't have to buy the top of the line models to get the the direct drive motor with 7 year part warranty. Other companies make a pretty good product also.
Don't bother rating this "solution" as anything but a FixYa lowers my rating.
