I have both but only for two years. I haven't had any real trouble with them. The washer once showed me an error code at the end of a load but whatever the issue was seemed to resolve itself. And it could very well have been caused by something I should do, like replace the lint trap I have on the end of the drain hose.

The only design flaw that I've found is with the washer. After a load, water is left in the tray where you pour detergent, softener and bleach. When I took it out, I noticed mold in the back of the compartment that the tray fits into. So now I usually pull it out and let it dry on top of the washer after a load.

I've had my Duet machine for almost six years. It has been a total failure. It cost me $200 in labor and parts to repair last month, not to mention being without a washer for a week and a half. Now it's telling me the control module is burned out.

washers are the 4.2
dryers are 7.3
pretty much standard sizes.
upgrade would be washers 5.0 to 5.2

I can't find a proper review on these units.

What are the temperature maxes for the cycles? Many dryers tend to run too hot and cause material fatigue.

What about the dryer? Do you also have the Duet Dryer and can comment on it's quality/durability?

Thanks and reps for the reply. With the prices, I went ahead and purchased the gas Duet dryer and the non-matching maytag washer. I will build a sturdy shelf to stack the dryer.

These are near Black Friday prices and just in time for a house I'm restoring.

Thanks OP and spaaarky21!

Can anyone point me in the right direction for getting an electric & ventless dryer? I've been searching for the home for quite a while and can't seem to find clear direction.

Looking at the 7.3 cu. ft. but the home doesn't have any vents.
