So, some of you were naysayers, some said keep it. Keep it I did and installed a repaired control board and new wax motor for about $50.00 total.
It has been relegated to duty out in my garage where is does laundry for myself and some neighbors. I use a garden hose for water the supply. It has endured the freezing temperatures in my unheated garage (5 deg F.) this winter with no complaints.
I have not winterized it but I do have a quick disconnect on the water supply.
This machine is really excellent and gets clothes very clean. I'm glad I kept it.
