This machine needs no routine maintenance. If it's lasted 15 years, then you have treated it well, not overloading it with too many clothes and putting a strain on it. The tub rusting out may be your biggest worry. The schematic for the electric wiring, the diagram for the machine layout and the tub will be in the owner's manual.

If the motor is running then the water pump or the clutch to it has failed. If the motor is not running, the motor has failed. Both fixes are probably too expensive for a 20 year old machine. Unless you are very handy and resourceful it may be time for a new machine.

The KitchenAid is an excellent washing machine and I would recommend keeping it going as long as possible. The most probable cause is a broken motor couple and the cost to repair is around $100
