Don't get rid of that machine. Those can last 30 years easily, and the stuff you get today cannot compare. You got a bad seal going from the basket to the outside tub. If left go, the motor eventually will short out. You will need to remove the adgitator first, by pulling up hard on it. Then grease the spline before you put it back. A 13mm metric socket (12 point) to take out the bolts holding down the basket. That rubber boot you will see in there is about 12" inches across at the bottom, and about 8" at the top, and looks like that funny hat Goober used to wear on Andy Griffith. The bottom band goes to the tub bottom, and the top goes up against the transmission. The clamps are reuseable, and the boot should be less than $30.00.

Q - My washer will not fill with cold water
A - More often than not, this is a bad fill valve. Please see the filling section.
There's no cold water Some washing machines allow cold water to enter only during certain cycles. Others intermittently allow hot and cold to enter, to temper the temperature of the water. Consult your owner's manual if you are unsure about whether the machine is acting abnormally.
If you're sure the machine is not working the way it used to--or should--check the following.

This sounds like a faulty lid switch. The washer will do nothing if the lid is open. It is to prevent someone from reaching into the washer while it is washing and spinning. If it is a mechanical switch, you should heara "click" when the lid is opened and closed (almost closed is where it will click). There is a "stub" sticking out on the lid which will operate the switch. Make sure it is not broken off or otherwise too short to push on the switch. If it is a magnetic switch, you'll need to disassemble the unit to get access to it. We will need your make and model to be sure though.

Testimonial: "Thanks. It is the lid switch."
Your problem could be one of 2 things either the base is pushed up in the center or the front apron is bent. The apron is the piece of metal that runs across under the top cover. To remove the front cover to see either use a putty knife to release the catch between the top and the front cover and pull front outward one side at a time.
