That's what I planned. I bought a Duet last year with a pedastal for $100 and the guy said it worked just needed a knob. Once I got it home and took it apart there was alot more than that wrong. The inner user interface black frame was cracked where towo screws mounted it to the frame, the drum seal was bad, etc. I decided to part it out to make my money back, I've used the motor, and heating element so far. Now this. I think I have recovered the money I lost.
