We get service calls regularly from customers that ask if they should repair or replace their appliance. Specifically regarding older Maytag’s built in 2004 or earlier, usually it is best to repair them. These machines were built to last! We often refurbish them for customers, because new machines built today are having their first failures between 1-3 years.
Here is a repaired Maytag washer and some pics of repair in process.
