Question about Frigidaire GLTF2940ES Front Load Washer
Before i start the conversation, i would like to inform you that there is a general thumb rule - ' If the cost of repair is more than half the price of the machine, it is better to switch to the new machine '.
The life of washing machine depends upon many factors. The main factors include the ' usage ' and ' how you maintain ' the machine. The average life of washing machine ( moderate users ) is around 7 years.
Let's suppose you spend $200 and it would be repaired, there is no guarantee that it would not cause any problem in the next couple of years. There would be certain parts that are worn out and needs replacement.
As the new machine is $450, it would also help you in long run. It's an investment of $450 for 5 - 7 years as compare to $200 for a couple of years and then you might need to buy a new one ( who knows ).So, i would agree purchasing the new one is a wise decision ( in long term ).
So, whether it's $200 or $250 - in long run, it would be a loss.
If you still, wanted to repair, revert and i could tell you few pointers how to replace these stuff and what needs to be done.
Let me know,if needed further assistance.
Hope i helped you.
Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!
