Well, after Moostafa skeered me away, I went ahead and bit the bullet and bought a new pair of Maytags.... Vote's not in just yet. I refused to pay a ton of change for a bunch of computer controlled crap that I read horror stories about on my favorite appliance forum, so I wound up with an agitatorless top loader and a new gas dryer to replace my 25+ year old one that still dried like a charm but the drum coating was worn off. Hope I don't live to regret the decision about the dryer... the washer, well, it was time. If for some reason I don't get a dozen or so years outta this one, I'll follow the lead here and refurb me an antique as you suggest. Thanks for all the helpful advice.. and the humor.
