I wanted to say the the Golch central washing machine does not have to be replaced. it was repaired for under $ 150.00. turns out the washer lid wsitch was the culprit in the maching failing to operate. we had someone that my BIL Stan Kobus (Celestine’s Brother) recomended to us. the were here today and found the malfunctiong switch.they replaced said switch and our washer is alive!!!!
