$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.

No. They're literally designed to fail. If you have them fixed it'll still cost at a minimum hundreds, and it'll keep happening. Those new machines will last about as long as their warranty period, and then they're garbage.

I was thinking the same thing. There is no need to spend that much on just a washer when it will work just as good as a 300, 400 dollar one.

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.

Yeah I guess you can do that if you like. But. Someone who CHOOSES to indulge themselves in an unecessary luxury shouldn't be going around whining about the tragic economic impact they "had to" endure.

I hate to be captain obvious, but the internet has taught me that there are an unreasonable amount of people that don't know you have to empty the lint trap on your dryer to keep it from going up in flames. So start there.

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.
