Folks have different personalities, folks have different perspectives, therefore people are funny.
ie: I repaired an old beat up Maytag Neptune that had 2 previous control board replacements. I replaced the MCU & motor kit at 10% less than BB price. Customer sais it was better than buying new machine. This unit has been to hell & back, in use on a oil drilling platform. The beat up machine is showing no sign of bearing failure.
Saw a newer Maytag Neptune that looked like it would still be under warranty, so clean. It has a MCU that had a heck of a surge that a relay was blown to pieces & other parts burnt. Customer received this machine from ailing grandfather who is in a nursing home. This unit sits in a house that is used as a fishing camp recreation.
Same repair same 10% off quote. They declined repair, rather go out & buy new. Go figure.
