I have an older Maytag stacked W/D electric dryer setup (SE1000) that has worked very well for many years. I've had to replace the dryer belt and a timer relay, as well as the drum roller (bearings) and support shafts, but that was years ago. It currently has a short vent run to an exterior wall. I want to move the dryer to a location where I would not be able to vent it to the outside. How bad of an idea is this? Is there a "best" solution for electric dryer indoor venting?
In the future it may be possible to run a vent up through a chimney 18' to the outside, and as I have a gas line already run to this new location for the W/D, I'd like to switch to a gas dryer, as gas is MUCH less expensive. As there was a gas version of this Maytag W/D (SG1000), if I could come across just the dryer portion, would it be possible to just swap out my electric dryer and use the gas dryer with my washer?
