I have a Sears unit of about the same vintage. I've had to replace seal/gaskets/o-rings in the rotary valve. Plug the model# into the Sears.com parts section, and you can see exploded rawing of the parts, even get prices.
The hardest part I had was getting the right lube. I wound up contacting Dow for a source for their silicone valve lube, #111 I believe. Great stuff for lubing/sealing other things dealing with potable water (like o-rings on water jugs).
There should also be a tech sheet folder up in the plastic casing that surrounds the valve body. It usually includes troubleshooting steps, too.
