Ok - that is about a 10 year old Kenmore unit - too old for me to conveniently find out who made it, but likely Whirlpool. I would contact Whirlpool, or a local Appliance Repair - Large (the Search the List category) outfit which also sells washers and dryers, and find out if there is a compatible washer to match up to your dryer. Seriously, I have never heard of being able to buy only have a duo unit - one of the reasons many people do not like them, though they are compact.

Sears MIGHT have a compatibility list - but I VERY seriously doubt it, especially with the way they are dive-bombing into bankruptcy. That also is a consideration - if you expect your warranty on a new unit to be honored, I would get a Whirlpool, not a Kenmore.

Though that appears to be a front-loader - personally (if the duo configuration allows that I would recommend going with a top-loader to avoid the chronic front-loader leakage issues.

One other possibility - on some duo's the upper unit connecting arm is designed to be removeable, leaving you with just a small upper unit - so you might be able to get a heavy-duty shelf built for it to sit over a new standard washer.
