Are you looking for a Top Loader OR a Front Loader ?

Direct Drive Top Loaders are still around (for a while)
There are some direct drive front loaders

You may not find one quite the same as you have - the toploading (w/direct drive transmission) has been phased out, there still may be some around in stocks, but they will be more "H.E." than the one you have (modified fill levels/ rinse temp selections etc). The Frontloading "direct drive" technology refers to the fact that the outer tub itself in effect becomes the stationary poles of the motor; thus it drives the drum directly and is also beltless.
Personally, I wouldn't think twice at rebuilding my topload direct-drive.

<<<i visited the home depot only to discover that if i buy a washer most of them are belt driven and need to use H e detergent.>>>

*****************************

Only top loading washers *without* an agitator require "HE" (High Efficiency/LOW SUDS) type detergent.

None are belt-driven (Direct drive).

LG
Samsung
Whirlpool
Maytag
Kenmore
GE

*****************************

<<<i dont understand why i cant just buy a washer and use the frikkin detergent i got already>>>

*****************************

Top load ***agitatorless*** washers use a fraction of water compared to top load washers that use an agitator.

A *low-suds/suds inhibiting* type detergent is **required** in order for the laundry to become clean in a washer that uses very,very small amounts of water.

*****************************

<<<the salesman also informs me that most of us that buy a new washer need service 3 times in the first year! uuuugggh>>>

*****************************

If the saleman was describing 3 warranty calls per year---because he neglected to inform his customers that using HE detergent in the following amounts is IMPERATIVE...

HE: (2) Tablespoons Per Washload (regardless of load size)

HE 2X: (1) Tablespoon

HE 3X: (1) Teaspoon

He's problably correct :)
To eliminate:

Musty odor

L-O-N-G cycle times

Dingy/yellowing whites

Suds error message

Slow spin speeds

Intermittent water leaks (from rear of washer)

And other annoying symptoms which vary brand-to brand.

Read below:

The *correct* amount of HE (High Efficiency) detergent that should be used in any front load or agitatorless top load washer with tub sizes 3.0 cu ft and larger is as follows:

HE: (2) Tablespoons Per Wash Load

HE 2X: (1) Tablespoon

HE 3X: (1) Teaspoon

Perform a TUB CLEAN CYCLE every (4) months.

Use: "Tide Washing Machine Cleaner"
