I got a free Maytag washer and dryer set. All I had to do was put a new coil and start switch and it works. I did double check the wiring with the diagram behind the control panel. Everything went smooth...very easy repair. Thanks partselect for the quick shipping and parts. I can know save my money from the laundromat which is so expensive these days. Easy fix..just make sure the wiring is good before making these repairs.
