DH and I bought a Maytag washer and dryer 20 years ago, when we found out we were having twins. Over the years we have had repairs done on both - we are blessed with a wonderful appliance repair company nearby.
Over the weekend, the washer leaked water all over the floor. Monday afternoon, Repair Guy came out and fixed it, for $168 (total - parts + labor + service call).
If I can get a few more years out of the old girl, I'll be a happy camper!
