My brother is giving me an 11-year old Maytag washer which has sat in his basment for 10 years, unused.
Should I expect it to work - or will I need to replace rubber washers which may have dried out due to disuse? And if so, is this something I can do myself?

Maytag Neptune washer motor/motor control circuit board ... my board just fried - is your washer still working? wondering how longthe conversion fix will last. ... Other times it will run a completecycle without any malfunctions.
For being 10 years old...I'd say R.I.P Neptune. A 10-year-old dryer is going to cost you more in repairs than the cost of a new machine! And even if it is cheap enough to fix, the parts may be no longer available. I used to work at the Harrisburg PA Sears Parts/Service Center...trust me...I know.
if you have had this unit for over 5 years Then it is TOTALLY NOT worth the repair - if it is only a year or 2 old then call MAYTAG and they may offer a parts/labor concession. average life is 5-10 years now as sucky as that is!!
Whirlpool is good but Speed Queen is the best with the best warranty in the industry! Tested to wash 8 loads a week for 25 years! 3 years parts and labor compared to all others with only 1 year! And 10 years for the transmission not 1 year like all the rest! only 34 gallons of water used in the top loader and 13.9 gallons in the front loader. I'm 53 and I'm not buying another washer again! YES I SELL THEM AND EVERYONE WORKING IN MY STORE HAS ONE! There are plenty of more features! Speed queen is used in laundry mats all over the world!
So now that I reallllly saved you, GIVE ME THE BEST RATING SCORE HERE AT FIXYA!!
If its 10 years old or more don't put money into it!
The new ones are much more energy efficient!

It was manufactured in May 1993. However, depending on the problem, you may seriously consider a repair. The reason I say this is because this is a GOOD Maytag, before they started going downhill, and will probably last another 10 or more years. If you consider fixing it, post the actual problem it's having and I'll let you know what I think.
