$1400??? Did you shop around at all?? YDI for dropping that much on a washer. I grabbed a washer and dryer for less than $500 by going to a consignment store, and four years later they're still running great.
While I agree, the washer I have is 15 years old, and when I do get a new one, I want a REALLY fancy/nice one with bells and whistles. So I'll get it! I'll get a similar or matching Dryer when that busts too. OP may have been waiting for their appliances to die out to get the new ones shes always wanted. Then when the dryer caught fire (I think it was Lint not ever checked and the exhaust never cleaned, honestly) OP probably wants a matching. Yes its another $1000, but people like matching and treating themselves, it was probably just a bit earlier than expected.
Assuming your lint filter was clear when the dryer caught fire, I have a question. Do you notice your lights getting brighter and dimmer when a high load appliance is turned on? If so, you may be experiencing symptoms of a resistive neutral. In that case, you should call your power provider, describe your symptoms, and ask if they would investigate. Whenever we see multiple appliances failing within a short period of time, we always look for lights getting brighter and dimmer.
