Well that's depressing. Two days, and 70 views, and no recommendations for a comparably sized replacement.
So, if this unit had such a good reputation, and I went looking for a used one, a gas version an SG1000, what would I be looking to fail?
Does the burner or flame chamber rust out? Do relays specific to the gas dryer give out? What's prone to fail and are those parts still available and should I get backups now, if I find one?
Could I just look for the (gas) dryer unit? - with the electric dryer version (SE1000) we have now, the dryer is on it's own stand, separate from the washer. If I could find just the gas dryer, could I just swap it out with the electric dryer?
