visit home depot,look for business cards of appliance repair guys
pay a couple guys a service call to troubleshoot the problem,,if it is big
says number one,pay him, with thanks for the service call
call number 2,not telling him anyone else looked at it.
might be something simple..toss the card of the first guy.
if both say its smoked,ask if they would transport & install a thrift shop used washer,,,,these can be had for 50 bucks,
some repair guys are slick, like number one telling you its dusted,he carts it away paying only gas to bring it to the shop,install or fix what it needs,, price it as reconditioned like new for 400 bucks.
