I called Lucky Buy when I realized it was more than the drain hose.I asked if they would install for the same $55 if I got the parts online for less than their price & they said yes.Once the parts came, they came back (Initial call was $20) for the $55 part replacement call.At one point he said he had to leave & came back in 20 mins with the pump sawed off (into pieces - it was frozen on the base!)...He also installed a new belt (Also ordered here for less than their quote!) +I got braided steel hoses and (3) sets of screens (I'll start changing them annually!) ~The washer now fills AT LEAST 4x as quickly with new hoses & screens!The clothing comes out MUCH LESS DAMP with the new belt!+ it is FAR QUIETER with the new belt!We're in HEAVEN over here! :-)ONE THING:One that first load after the repair, I noticed the water level (Set, as always, to XL) was over halfway UP the side of the agitator's fabric softner dispenser, but thought MAYBE I was "misremembering", but nooo, I don't think I was because LOTS of water spilled out the MIDDLE FRONT BOTTOM once it did the cycle...(This did not happen when he tested it before leaving - on the SMALL cycle (Which we NEVER use)...SO!QUICK FIX:We set the water level to "LARGE" and all's been fine ever since! :-)Anyone know whick part we need for the water to stop UNDER the bottom of the fabric softner, like it used to?I am VERY PLEASED to have found this site and Lucky Buy - I am _SURE_ I saved WAY OVER $100 total (Parts & Labor) & my 15-year old machine is AS GOOD AS NEW NOW (almost - that leak's got to GO! :-)
