I have a number of older appliances I pickup over the years.  Need to clean house and make some room.  They are decent items, all have an issue or two, but want to get a fair price for them.  Really not sure what a"fair" price is.


I'm in Mid Michigan so it's not close to many collectors here so that limits the market, don't want to see them go to scrap.  Got a Maytag washer from the early 80s, a Whirlpool washer with the angel wing agitator and brush style filter, a Ge Americana range and a Lady Kenmore gas dryer with the garage door from '73, a Whirlpool dishwasher from late 80's- single wash arm with tower.


I'll have to go and collect model numbers and get some pictures at some point, just getting started with the idea.

Please post pictures; I might be interested in the Whirlpool washer and the Whirlpool dishwasher if I could see what they look like.

I'll try and get some pictures in a few days, working this weekend.  Had some interest in the washer, Whirlpool LA6580XKNI  LA58BK are the best I can decipher off the tags in the current location.  Was working prior to storage, will have to pull out and clean up a bit to get a better idea.  Issue was stress on wiring at I believe the wig wag under the machine.  I have zero experience with belt drive units but that is my recollection, belonged to a relative.


Dishwasher is a Whirlpool DW910PFGBO black, working before I pulled it out of the install in the house I'm flipping.  Was my aunts, older lady low to moderate use I'd say, i did the original install odds are early 90's.  Ran it before I disconnected good water sounds and drained fine.


Dryer is gas, from '73, has the burled walnut door, not wood grain.  It is harvest gold was part of a set, I am the original owner.  Was in use at a relatives prior to storage, was working at that point.  Missing gold colored handle for the door, NLA, had white one, now missing.


Maytag is A209, in very good condition.  I used it a few times works well.  No rust in tub - still shiny, aqua blue agitator.


Ge range is a P7.  Upper oven has the removable panels for cleaning.  It also has the integrated hood attached.  Was working when pulled, issue is missing bottom drawer.  Customer had a matching cabinet panel in it's place for a more "built in" look I'd guess.  Cannot get to model number at the moment.


I'll try and post some pictures soon since there is some interest.  Not looking to get rich off these, reasonable offers accepted, just want them not to go to scrap.
