A friend of mine has a Maytag washer that is 25 years old and "on the fritz".
She says that the water pump is "out". Her son is going to replace it and see if that fixes it.
I am not familiar with Maytags so am wondering if one of that vintage is worth repairing.
Experts - your advice, please.
I told her IF she needed to buy a new machine, she should buy a Speed Queen.
I don't have a lot of confidence in the quality or longevity of LG or Samsung machines.
I suppose Miele might also be a good choice for her?
What say you?

"on the fritz" could cover 100 different things. What specifically is it doing, or not doing?

Hi Bill, in order to comment we need a model #, there are just too many possibilities and possible different MT washers built 25 years ago.
