We have gone 19 years on a Duet stack

Every 3-4 years I have to open up the washer and soak the valve assembly in vinegar for 48 hours to demineralize them or water leaks into the drum.

And I had to replace the door seal gasket which got too stiff, and the washer plastic handle which broke from fatigue (once for each).

All of those were on the washer. Dryer has needed almost zero maintenance except I had to replace the light bulb once.

At this point I am sort of curious how much longer they can last. They could have died at 10 or 12 years and I would have bought another set in appreciation.
