The washer was going to be thrown away because of the leak, a new one was purchased. I said I would take the old washer and look into repairing it.I went online and saw a video on how to replace these defective parts, upon seeing how quick and easy this repair could be made, paired with the extremely small expense for parts ( 48.00 including shipping!), I chose to repair the washing machine. After the repair was completed, I donated the machine to a friend and spiritual advisor, an Orthodox Bishop.
