Hi Everyone!

(feel free to skip the story!)
Recently, Miele came out to replace the struts and rubber gasket on my 10 year old Miele W4840 washing machine. After this work, the inner drum was rubbing up against the new gasket, so we suspected the bearing was shot, and Miele refused to fix the bearings. I took it apart to prove to myself the bearing was shot (the inner bearing was, and the spider was rusted through at one point), and now I need to get rid of all these parts!

The following parts are nearly new:

1. 3 struts/shocks: $75/piece, or $200 for all three
2. Rubber gasket, with light rubbing that I can't find: $100

Everything else in the machine was working without issue before disassembly, and is ready to box and ship! That means the motor, any wiring harnesses, detergent drawer (there are non-functional small pieces of plastic missing), glass door, and anything else you can think of is available. Name your price, and I'll let you know if the price works.

I also have the original frame, panels, tub, plinth/drawer (front doesn't attach securely, but that's an easy "order a small plastic bit from Miele" fix), and suds bucket. I doubt anyone wants these since the bearings and spider are shot. These are big and bulky, so I'm probably just going to take them to a scrap yard. If you're in Houston, and want to pick these up, offer a price quick before I find my friend with a truck to scrap it.

Buyer will need to pay actual shipping. Drop me an email if you're interested! I can only hold onto this stuff for a week or so, so please move quick.
