I have a MAH3000 that came down with with a bad drum bearing. I was going to fix it, but then saw a MAH5500BWW on craigslist for $100. (I may be a glutton for punishment here, but the evil you know seems safer than the evil you don't know) It seems to work fine so I am going with it.
My question is, what parts from the MAH3000 should I salvage and which ones are compatible with the MAH5500? It looks like the door boot is compatible. Mine was replaced years ago for free by Maytag and has remained mildew free ever since. The one I just got is blackish grey. What about the drive motor, solenoid valves, pump, etc? And does the control board still have any value?
