This in from automaticwasher.org but it's so good (or bad) I though I had to share. Who knows what's lurking inside our washers...

Great thread. Makes the Neptune look like a dream machine to work on.
I think this washer must have used the lowest grade of materials possible.
What irks me is that I own this model.
LOL.......That is precisely why I took the money I was going to spend on a front loader and got an imported wringer washer. I just did four loads of clothes in one hour. If one of the very few moving parts goes bad, I could probably have the machine apart and replace it in an hour too.
More power to you. Sometimes a simpler life is good.
