just seen this posting....

hippiedoll's profile picture
i just checked out the listing and it says in there that these are yellow. but in the pictures, they look more like the avocado green?? what do you guys think??

and can you please tell me the options of a 606?? i see that it does have the regular & gentle speeds. so, i'm assuming this is a 2-speed? correct me if i'm wrong. and also, being that there are the only 3 temperature selections, am i right in thinking that this washer is a cold rinse only?? and is the "red" side of the timer control a permanent press was cycle or a soak cycle??

i'll be waiting to hear back from anyone who can tell me these details.

thank you....

On my 3 temp set, they were hot/warm, warm/cold, and cold/cold.. I expect this model to be the same...

do you have or had a 606?? if so, did it have the 2 speed/gentle agitation? or is it regular agitation with pauses in it??

A606 will be a 2 speed.

thank you for confirming that with me.

i SWEAR all these different model numbers have me so confused. i was just reading another thread where i basically asked the same question. and i see that it was answered on that other thread too.

i apologize for any repeat questions. i wish i could retain all this different information!!!

thank you again for verifying it's a 2-speed, goatfarmer.

lots of love...

cycles are Perm Press & Regular and possibly a prewash or soak. Regular and gentle speeds. Small, Medium, Large, Ex Large Water levels. Hot/Warm; Warm/Cold; and Cold/Cold. All 06 Electronic control dryers used an all-fabric temperature (read this as meaning low/delicate). Control dial cycles were regular (3-5 minute cool down); Perm Press (about an 8-10 minute cool down and the moisture sensor was equivalent to extra dry--this is cycle you used to dry extra heavy things too. The end of cycle chime chimed several times during the cool down on Regular it chimed just as the dryer shut off); Damp Dry and Air Fluff.

No need to apologize. It's so easy to get overwhelmed and confused. Glad we can all help keep you on track and hopefully help you find what you really want.

One thing you could do to help yourself keep the models straight -

Create a folder and save pictures of Maytags to it. You could give each photo a name based on the model number (like 'A806.jpg), or if you have the computer skills, you could also put the model numbers right on the photo.

Another way to do it would be a Pinterest account, where you can save and label photos of interest to you.

If you have materials to refer to, it all becomes much clearer.

This is a somewhat rare set set in that it is a 606 washer with the sun-glow trim and aluminum cycle dial paired WITH a Halo of heat 606 dryer.  That puts production of the pair between about March of 1975 and September of 1975.

very interesting....

hippiedoll's profile picture
kenmore71. so than, this set is definitely from 1975. that is cool.
is "halo of heat" the dryer with no drum light? i know on one thread someone posted a picture of 2 versions of the maytag dryers. one was halo of heat and i think the other one was called stream of heat, or something like that??

appnut & danemodsandy...

thank you for beaking down the timer cycles of the 606 washer & dryer, for me. i really appreciate you telling me the details and especially for having patience with me & all my questions!!!


i'm not sure i know exactly how to make a folder? i'm not really hip to computering. i just know how to get on here, ebay, my emails, youtube, & like store websites. when it comes to anything else, i'm not that up on things. :o/

but one thing i do know how to do is "bookmark" things, from the toolbar at the top of the screen!!! LOL...
so, i will be bookmarking this thread so that i can always use it to refer to the 606 washer & dryer timer cycles & look at the pictures posted in this thread.

thank you guys so much for everything. you guys are truly the BEST & KINDEST!!!

lots of love...

The Halo of heat dryers are the ones with the smaller door and the heating element at the front.

thanks for posting that vintage ad.

i was thinking it was probably the one with the smaller door. does that mean that it has a smaller capacity drum, than the bigger doored maytag dryers??

Halo versus stream

akronman's profile picture
Halo Of Heat is the small door, small drum machine. Referred to on this website often as HOH. Really really small drum.

Stream of Heat has a much larger door and much larger drum, though the cabinet is almost exactly as big.

I had an awesome A207 for a year or so. Great machine.

Hippiedoll, "Halo of heat machines" have a lint screen in the center of the drum you have to stoop and reach in and pull it out. The "big load" or "stream of heat" machnines have the filter up front on the left hand side. You can see the filter in reply #14. The "SOH" filter is much easier to reach, for a daily driver machine.

They look kinda beat up. Did you all see the gouge/dent in the front of that washer. Scratches can be fixed, but a gouge/dent. Hard to fix. At least in my experience.

What damage would lurk behind that gouge or dent?
