Replacing parts does not lower the products standards. It is the same unit even enhanced and improved with something new. It can be comparable to a turkey filled with stuffing for Thanksgiving. It is the same fowl animal with something better inside. The outer covering remains the same despite changes inside.
Do not be one of those who utilize second hand washing machine spare parts. You already save hundreds of dollars for repair rather than purchasing a new one. Do not fall short in picking less expensive spare parts. Used parts no longer have the quality, durability and effectiveness which new parts possess.
