LHE = electric
LHIxxx1 = gas

Probably 5800.  Looks to be a Supreme designation on the console.  There's a 5530 but it likely wouldn't have auto-dry cycles.

Slight oddness with Whirlpool's "pairings" circa this period ... 5800 washer was 18lb capacity but 5800 dryer was regular capacity, it added auto-dry (and a hamper door) to the 5700 feature set.
