This washer is just coming up to 8 years old. We've already replaced the motor (at 7 years in) and now it's leaking out the bottom and making a horrible noise in the final spin. Something must have come loose.
We're limping along with it, using towels to sop up the water underneath it and stopping it before it goes into the final spin. As far as I'm concerned it's not worth fixing it (although we haven't gotten an estimate yet) and we're looking to replace.
I expected this to last for at least 15 years without major issues. I believe this is one of the Frigidaire models that Sears sold back in 2001 and I understand there are major problems with these units.
