I repaired one I got for $25.00. The guy said it had bad tranny. I just bought it because I had not seen one before and it looked pristine. I wanted the experience. Did not have trouble getting parts, but did'nt need triple seal. My wife loves it. I will see how long it lasts. I told her not to overload and I will do inspection once a year. Four months since repair so far so good.

So how is the washer in the long run......? Is it still in service?

Still running great. My wife loves it and I guess that is what matters. I told her not to overload it and I will inspect it once a year and hope for the best. Good luck to you.

Well just put a SAV in service here @ the house I did complete replacement from inside seal on down......guess I will see if it's money well spent.

 

I found this washer on CL for $20 the guy claims he had it for 6 years and 4 of them were in storage...The condition of the washer is predestine and 2 years ago he took it out of storage to run it and claims it was getting louder and louder during the spin cycle.....hence a leaking tub seal destroyed inner tub bearing. 

 

My wife likes it so far....she says clothes are not as damp after the spin cycle compared to our other washer..... I will contribute that to the 710 RPM motor.

 

QUESTION: Since SQ bought this line can any one tell me the differences that SQ changed to improve this machine? Seems like a sound machine except for earlier comments

 

I will keep thread posted....thx all for the help.

Came home and found some water on floor......I expected the worst (tub seals)......turned out the pump stripped and was not pumping like it should. The basket was spinning and centrifugal force forced some of the water up over the outer tub and found its way on to the floor. Replaced pump and off and running again!
