Maytag Neptune Washer
« on: January 24, 2009, 03:52:56 PM »
Bought this washer in February 1999.  The drive motor broke yesterday and it will cost $470.00 to repair, according to the service technician.  I am wondering in light of the machine being 10 years old, if I should invest this money toward repair or toward the purchase of a new machine.  This is the first time the machine has ever given us a problem.  

Model MAH3000AWW

Actually the motor is only about $200. For a 10 year old Neptune, which is kind of rare, it is about ready for the Smithsonian.      ;)

So your Neptune will be 10 years old in Feb. Then your motor is still in warranty. It is warranted for 10 years. They furnish a new motor but you pay the labor which should be less than $4oo whatever the amount was. As in the post before Yes you could get the motor and do it yourself for $200. if you want to keep the machine.
