I have an old whirlpool top loading LA8800 (Maytag rebranding?) washer that leaks from the bottom.. is this usually a simple (and cheap) gasket type repair, or would now be a good time to get a more energy (water?) efficient front loading type?
Also, anyone know what the capacity is of my Whirlpool LA8800? I can't seem to find any specs on it, my current washer!)
