I *ALMOST* called about this set when I thought I might need to replace my washer. Since I rectified my issue here, I won't be chasing up on these. It's a fairly rare set--I used to own this type back in the mid 90s. I know they're newer than most people up here have any interest in....but if still available, I suspect the price may have come down in the last 2 weeks....they sure look awfully clean!

I have the washer, would like the dryer. And that set has a decent looking control pad, not worn like many of them.

Control Pads:

It would help a lot if people would learn to press button pads with the fleshy pad of the fingertip instead of with their nails.

I tried to teach my mom that, but she would not do it, with the result that her button pad-equipped appliances always had wear-through of the pad in pretty short order.

I know someone with the same microwave I use as a daily driver, whose button pad wore through in months. Mine is pristine after a couple of years.

Can't teach some folks....

seem to be a problem for a lot of people, right? All my stuff which has those is still immaculate. It's like people think they have to punch and pound on those things to make sure the setting is gonna take :p

three of those membranes are pushed thru on the washer. (temp, water level, and regular cycle) people just don't learn

were something which prompted me to search online for control boards and trim pieces for this model....there sure isn't much out there~but I figured SOMEONE up here more than likely has a pile of replacement parts "just in case"....!
