My lid switch failed today. The unit is ancient, (20 years). The inner workings are also getting to be noisy, (per repairman). I would just like to know what size this unit is, and what would be comparable in todays marketplace?

Hank M. for Model Number Maytag Washer #A612

ANSWER Hello Hank, There are no longer any good top load machines since the manufacturers have gone to high efficiency top loaders. The best machine in my personal opinion is a front load by Whirlpool. The full sized Duet. I've been a technician for a long time and the only machines I "love" are the ones I don't have to work on. I've had my Duet for over two years and have never had to do a thing to it. Out of probably 20 washers I have owned, this is the first one that has not failed even in warranty.
