I currently have a fairly new Speed Queen gas dryer with the electronic control panel. This is the newer design that replaces the older rotary dial type control. I am looking to buy a used but almost new condition washer with the same type control panel at about half the price of a new one. I am looking for some opinions as to whether this type of machine is as good as the older design unit with the rotary dial control. I am not in a hurry but at $400 it seems tobe a good unit to buy. Presumably the guts of the unit are as good as the older design. Any comments will be appreciated .
