I accidentally sent a...

I accidentally sent a bag of cat litter through my front loading washer with a load of rags. The machine overflowed, obviously. I didn't know why at first--just figure it out. I've got the water out of the basin. Question is: can this be repaired, or should I just buy a new one? The machine is about 15 years old.

Contractor's Assistant: What's the make and model of your washing machine? And can you guesstimate how old it is?

Model number on iside door is MAH6500AWW. Problyn15 yrs old. I can't see wher it says the make,sorry.

Contractor's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

Repair work? no no no no no. i'd call someone.

Contractor's Assistant: Anything else we should know to help you best?

I'm going out of town for all of next week, so ideally this will be taken care of tomorrow. I'm not thrilled with leaving water standing around inside the machine for a week or more.
