Top of the line with a lighted control panel. This isn't a Halo of Heat machine but I'll leave it to the experts here to figure out which model it is. Starting bid is only one dollar.

Would this be the rare "condenser" model?? Also looks like a 1959, if I'm not mistaken.

That's what I was wondering as well, but all of my manuals are still in boxes somewhere from the move so I can't easily look it up. I was hoping someone else would have the answer.

That must be a Maytag 740C electric dryer. That is a lint drawer in the right corner. I know someone has the same dryer here on has the same dryer, but in gas.

Electric dryer

I have this exact dryer in white but it is gas. This one appears to be electric as there is no opening on the top right side where the gas controls are located.
Can't tell if this is a condenser or not as we would need to see the back to tell that. John L. has the condenser model of this dryer.

I believe this is the standard airflow electric dryer, pre-HOH from 1957 - 640C. The condensing dryer (640W) had the water inlet just above the belt line to the blower on the rear of the dryer.

The 740 model number was designated for the gas version of the dryer, 640 for electric.

It is definitely a pre HOH dryer

If it were a HOH dryer there would be the lint filter disc in the rear if the drum but as you can see in the picture there is not lint filer disc...PAT COFFEY

The thing that is hanging off of the back is the terminal block for a 240V plug. This could either be a rare condenser model, or it could be a rare vented 640C vented electric dryer. There is a hook up for a vent on the back. It has to be a 640C vented electric dryer.

Its not a condenser model

appliguy's profile picture
If it were a condenser model it would have a pipe sticking out the back to connect to a water line. Maytag condenser dryers used water as part of the process unlike he Frigidaire FiltraMatic dryers of the same a matter of fact a Maytag condenser dryer will not run unless it is hooked to a water line and the water is turned on. A switch in the condenser chamber prohibits the operation of then dryer unless the water is on....PAT COFFEY
