I was just minding my business, waiting for the light to change when I spotted it at the curb. Never seen one in person in the toast color, so, yeah, in the truck it went. But wait, there's more, along with the dryer, was a matching Kenmore 24"washer,  the rarer model with the control panel on top. I couldn't fit it in the truck along with the dryer, I had a bunch of other stuff. So I thought, OK, I'll race home, drop of the dryer, come back and pick up the washer. I got back, and some ass had gotten to the washer, removed all the knobs, ripped open the back, took the timer, water pump, did a real hatchet job. Damn, and I was only away 20 minutes. Oh well at least I saved the dryer.

I'm guessing 1983-85?

The knobs are definitely not original.

well it comes up as April, 1975? or 1985?.....

1975 would match the woodgrain control panel....

yet 1985 would match the color...I would go with this one.....

looks to be in great shape for 32 years old......

You know Martin, I was a bit confused when I saw the trim, which suggested an older machine, but it was painted toast, that suggests a newer machine. I wonder if this was tinkered with far more than I originally thought. As I mentioned, the knobs are not of this machine. Let's see what it says when I open it up. But I really think this is more like an '85.

Model year

This is definitely an 80s model, the first 8 in the model number after the 110. indicates the decade.

This is an '83 model made the 18th week of 1985. The Lady K portables did have all that fake wood on them in this period.

The knobs were a medium brown color, even on those with a white cabinet, and had a chromed center insert.

Good luck with the dryer, it looks lightly used.

Hey thanks Gordon for the clarification. It does seem to be in good shape, just really dirty as usual. I can imagine the horrors that await when I open it up. I imagine it's going to be a complete tear down, clean up job.
