I kept the magnets, several short hoses, wire clamps, etc from ours. All in a box that I will one day pitch I think. In ours, the failure was the 3-armed piece that connected drum to the machine (can’t recall the part name). Seemed to react to the stainless drum (dissimilar metals), and after 4 or 5 years just crumbled. The first time we were able to repair. The second time some screw holes on the drum wallowed out before it shut itself down. Seems like the drum was not available, but if it had been i’d have been at 60% on buying new—which we did.

Used all the right detergents, did the recommended stuff, etc—but after 2 failures it was time to move on. We’re on softened well water, so our iron content may have contributed to the failure—but I think that assembly should have been insulated from the steel or made from a high performance non-metal material.
