I think my Whirlpool top-loading washer had finally gone beyond practical repair. It was in the house when my family purchased it in 1975 and who knows how long it was here before that (see photo). The agitator is moving in slow motion and the water will not empty. After the wash cycle, it just sits there, not doing anything but making a loud humming (with intermittent grating) noise. I am debating whether to get a new washer since I have so few loads (maybe 6 to 8) a year to do now that I'm retired, or just take
it to the nearest laundromat and pay $2 a load.
Maybe you can find an inexpensive one someplace. How do you get by on 6-8 loads a yr? Assuming you're a single woman, changing sheets and towels twice monthly that would be 24 loads, not including clothes. Maybe your pastor would know of someone.
Go to the laundromat.
Maybe you change your sheets more frequently. With only me in bed, they don't get very dirty.
After buying a new washer, I wish I had tried to get mine repaired. New washers do not put very much water into the machine.
Those are the high efficiency washers that don't use much water. they do still sell the regular washers. I don't like my HE...it has issues.
I vote for going to the Laundromat, too for the original poster.
