I don't know about anyone else's machine, but the first issue on mine was a crack in the drum, at the top. I had a devil of a time figuring that out--it would leak water only occasionally, and that turned out to be because it was flinging it out the top during the spin cycle, and coming out at the bottom. Fixed it with some JB Weld.

The second thing that happened was the motor (mentioned above); replaced it with a used one that cost $125.

The third thing was a bearing going bad, and that's pretty much unfixable. That's when I bought the lightly used Splendide 2100 (which turned out to be $250, not the $500 I thought, which makes my vexations with the machine more palatable).

Because of that, I am not willing to take the risk it is OK.

Just very hard to justify spending $400 on a 20 year old machine that is obsolete.
I hear ya. I think I'm lucky that the bearing on mine went bad, because it would have been an enormous job to try to figure out a replacement part but I might have attempted it anyway if the $250 Splendide hadn't dropped in my lap.

The motor went bad after 12 years, and the bearing after 16 years, all of it fulltiming, so it got a lot of use.
