Hi, I purchased this washer new, over 20 years ago and last week, it gave me the first problems ever! Hubby took a look and said the leak was caused by a bad water pump, so ordered one online. Since it's never had any service or maintenance, I figured now would be a good time to try to get rid of some of the squeaks and noises it has when washing and spinning. It could use a good cleaning and probably oiling or something.

This is the exact machine that was posted by macboy91si on one of his threads. I tried to post on that thread, but guess it is closed now. If anyone can give maintenance and cleaning advise, I'd love it. Macboy got his gleaming and I'd like this one to look good too (and sound better if possible)!

Thanks for any help you can offer. Oh, and if Macboy is still around here, I have the owners manual for this machine if you would like a copy.
