My rather old Maytag SE1000 washer dryer combo is acting up in the spin cycle. The washer slowly agitates to and fro but never gets to spinning and draining the water.
I checked the lid switch (lid open - does not work; while lid open stuck a screwdriver in the slot to press the switch - heard a clicking sound and the washer powered up). So my guess is that the lid switch is not the problem.
Can someone help me with the following questions
(1) what may be the problem.
(2) if this something that I can repair. I am pretty handy with tools and mechanical and electric assembly/disaasembly but don't have any specialized tools and probably don't have the physical strength to be able to turn the darn thing upside down.
(3) how much it might cost me to get it repaired - just a rough estimate? I am tight on money but if this number is too much I just may have to swallow a bitter pill and buy a new unit).
Many thanks in advance.
