Probably a product of the KLaytheon corporation.

I think so, it looks like an 80's Speed Queen.

Kleenmaid is Speedqueen

At least from 1986 or so.

From 86, the Kleenmaid machines have been available as rebadged Speed Queens. They average a life of around 10-12 years before the lower seals fail, but other than that and the cheap paint rusting off the top, they just keep chugging along.

Before 86, the machines were rebadged Brazillian BD Whirlpools. The Speedqueens start to retail at around $1499 here, the Kleenmaids start at just over $2K. To buy a SQ you need to be able to show that you're a registered business.
