I am replacing my Maytag steam front loading washer and

I am replacing my Maytag steam front loading washer and dryer with new Maytag steam washer/dryer. I don't want to pay $500.00 to replace my perfectly good pedestals. Can I use them with a few adjustments?JA: Can you guesstimate how old your Maytag is? And just to clarify, what's the exact model?Customer: 7 years old and they are Maytag Performance Series 5000. The book has W10176966A and W10207213-SPJA: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?Customer: Yes. My husband is a contractorJA: Anything else we should know to help you best?Customer: I just have seen different answers. obviously Maytag will say no because they want us to purchase new. I would rather spend that money to get the upgraded models of both machines. The control board went out on the dryer and the technician told my husband that the part is $500.00 and we are already into the repair $100.00 so he recommended and we decided it would be better to replace and we will sell the washer.

i have a 50 gallon State Appliance electric storage tank water heater and am contemplating conversion to a tankless water heater. i live in a full 4 seasons climate and so I have heard that I can't rely on an electric tankless because the groundwater will be too cool at times. What is involved with switching over to a natural gas tankless (and does it matter if it is an indoor or outdoor install). Thank you.
