    GE Appliances don't have the longevity they once had. For about 40 years
    their washing machines were easy to fix and reliable. Now they aren't as
    good. My parents had a 1956 washer that lasted until they died in 1990.
    The pump was replaced a few times, the fill valve a once or twice, but it
    just kept running. We threw it out because no one wanted it, not because
    it didn't work. That same basic design was used from at least 1956 until
    1994.

    Never throw out working things. Try http://freecycle.org/ first.

    "The worldwide Freecycle™ Network is made up of many individual groups
    across the globe. It's a grassroots movement of people who are giving (&
    getting) stuff for free in their own towns. Each local group is run by a
    local volunteer moderator (them's good people). ...

    One main rule: Everything posted must be free, legal, and appropriate for
    all ages. ... "
