It was a tough (and stressful to an extent) decision...

My decision was pretty much at the time based on a local appliance parts place that told me Maytag was starting to discontinue parts... 

And again to me it was a gamble - invest some money and a lot of time to fix it myself (or pay someone a lot of money to repair), and then something else goes.  And I really could not have another leak event.

In the end, $900 for the washer + 5 year warranty was worth it to me for my perception of the lower risk of leaking due to the next thing failing.  (Versus $100 parts & tools (guess), plus hours of my time, with the likelihood that something else would go bad in the next couple of years)

I don't know if there is any "right" answer here to be honest.  (Although had I known about washing machine drip pans I MIGHT have gone a different way)

So I have my new LG, and it does clean very well actually.  It is not light on water usage either - which was one of my big concerns, so many HE washers use so little water.

I have water pressure problems, which complicate things - but am working to get those fixed.
