I would NOT ditch the Duet washer for the POS Speed Queen... if the dryer is beyond repair (unlikely!) then just get another dryer.

Seriously - don't do it! The Duet will wash circles round the SQ. If you must have a matched set with a new top-loader, go for the new commercial Maytag.

Did he clean out any lint? The thermal fuse blows for a reason. (Overheating)

Loraine furniture the tech said it was normal use no over heating nothing just the fuse just went out normal since its a 13 year old dryer dating back from 2005 and 2 years ago the dryer underwent a cleanup by the same service tech that repaired the dryer today
