Hello, I have Maytag stacked washer/dryer, Model: LSE7806ACE (a washer and dryer combo). The serial number is 19841386CL which indicates that it is from June 2003- (see website: http://www.managemylife.com/mmh/questions/253979-find-age-maytag-washing-machine).
One of my relatives put a heavy weight on the lid which dented the lid as a whole, which slightly warped the rod connecting to the lid. This rod then rotates and flips up the switch which turns on the water when you shut the lid. To get the switch to flip now, and the water to turn on, we have to slam the lid now.
Question 1: I would assume that we would need a new lid and rod attached to the lid? About how much would this cost?
Question 2: When I opened the front panel to look at the lid mechanism, the washer tub seems to wobble back and forth more than normal, so there must be some stabilizer
that needs to be replaced. About how much would this cost?
Question 3: About How much would the labor for the above parts cost? Would it be worth the money to fix the washer?
