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

6 months old I don't know for sure It's basic frt loader no steam no fancy stuff

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

The current Maytag book panel looks like the bottom oneon page 5
