and replaced the timer and water valve in the washer and it is now running better than new. That is the good news, the bad news is I had him look at the dryer and asked him to lubricate the bearings as they were squeaking again. I have had the bearings greased in the past and figured they just needed some more. He opened the dryer up and said the bearings are completely shot and need to be replaced along with the shaft. Again he is going to have to order the parts and come out next week and install them. The bill that was going to be around $225.00 is going to be a lot more. He did say we are better off repairing the ten plus year old Maytag washer and dryer we have. He said they were built half way decent. He said the units they are selling now are not worth a damn. He said they generally crater after about three years. I guess the Maytag Corporation like everything else in this country has gone to hell in a hand basket.
