I have a Maytag fabric-matic 25-30yrs old model LA209. The Agitator quit working Monday and I really would like to keep it going a little longer if possible. When I flipped on its fron to look at the belts it had chunks missing from the drive belt and a little oil on them. My son cleaned the pullys up and replaced the belts and still no go. Ideas or sources on a manual?

The gearcase is gone on this unit, this is part number W10172458, You can order this part at the following locations online... WWW.APWAGNER.COM, or WWW.REPAIRCLINIC.COM, or WWW.PARTSTORE.COM. All 3 of these places are a good place to order your parts because of thier liberal return policy....


This is a hard repair and expensive one at that...
