I replaced a basket drive and drive block on a 3 year old Whirlpool direct drive top load washer today. Customer originally wanted to get rid of it and buy a new washer due to the $372.00 repair quote I gave them. I convinced them it was worth the money to get it fixed because they no longer make these washers and that they won't find another top load washer as durable and dependable as this washer. I also told them it is rare on these for the drive block to get stripped enough to ruin the basket drive. To me it is worth saving these washers from the junkyards no matter how much money is spent repairing them.
