I've heard stories that my great aunt had a dryer that would play "How Dry I Am" in lieu of a buzzer when the clothes were dry. The only reference I was able to find was that this might have been a Westinghouse. Has anyone heard about this model?

Cory, yes it was a Westinghouse dryer that matched their front load washer. I believe it was on the market around 1952 or 1955 at the very latest. If the date is incorrect, someone will correct me.

Yes there was the DeLuxe Laundromat twins available around 1955-1956 that had in the base of the dryer in front of the blower a small little xylophone with a switch connected to the timer.When the dryer was ready to shut off,the timer started the xylophone and it would play "How Dry I Am" to let you know your load was ready to put away."You can be sure.....if it's WESTINGHOUSE.

Would anyone happen to have a pic of this machine (or the dryer itself)? Sounds interesting...
