Seems that there is some denting in the top of the dryer. Possibly whacked with a hammer at some point?

Malcolm - I think a large number of consumers store detergents, additives, and other such bulky items on the top of the dryer. Slam down a big box powdered detergent or a heavy bottle of liquid and after while they make a dent. It almost seems like undented dryer tops are more unusual than ones that have taken some sort of beating. I think WP dryer tops might be a little more likely to dent because they don't have the indent that the KM dryers did, which help to add a little stiffness to the sheet metal.

Dave - To answer your question, without a detailed panel shot, I can't see what exact features this machine has, BUT, the two knob models with a water level knob AND a water temp knob were available in both capacities at the same time. The standard tub had fewer models than the large, and there were more large capacity machines clustered at the top end, so YES, if this machine is a standard capacity, it would be relatively closer to the high-end than if it is a large capacity.

In the 1982 / 1984 time frame when this panel was WP's standard, in the standard capacity there was an LA3000, LA5300, LA5500, and (this is where my WP knowledge gets a little fuzzy) an LA6000 or LA6300, MAYBE an LA7000. If this is interesting to anyone I will gladly consult the Whirlpool parts manual that has all their models by model year to see just what they offered exactly.

In the large capacity, there was an LA3800, an LA5580 (a 5380 too I think), and lots of models in the LA6000 and LA7000 range, including the very popular LA7680 and LA7800s. There were no equivalents to the LA7680 and 7800 in the standard line, in fact I am not sure any standard models by the mid 1980s had push button temps.

I bought an LA5580 at Circuit City in June 1986 for an August delivery, but canceled them when Sears put a KM set on sale that I really wanted. When shopping at Circuit City, I didn't see any standard tub BDs, or I think I would have grabbed it for nostalgia reasons. To this day though, I have wondered "what if" about that WP pair that wasn't. They were going to be in Toast color --- very rare.

If the washer is a large capacity model, then these are ones just like the pair my sister had in her first house. These would be 1982 models, as in 1983 the cabinets no longer had the extra indents in front.
