Sears (or Wards? one of the catalog merchandisers) sold this unit and a matching washer back in the day, presumably labeled for Kenmore.

Now and then those PS dryers show up on fleaPay. Like a host of similar units from the same period they are designed for those living in tight living quarters but wanted a washer and or dryer.

Yes, both the dryer and matching washing machine were also sold under the Kenmore brand. Our own Red Carpet Drew has a set.

You've got to be kidding! But then again when we were cleaning out my aunt's storage room on the back of the carport we came across a Sunbeam lawnmower.

The old man who lived next door when I was a kid had a Sunbeam lawn mower. 


I could never warm up to the idea of an electric lawn mower.  My experience with unruly garden hoses and extension cords put the kibosh on a corded mower.

....To find a Sunbeam mower! I had one once, but let it go with the house I had at the time when I sold it.

Dumb. DUMB.

We got a Sunbeam electric mower when I was about 10 or so. My dad's uncle had bought it, but then decided he would hire someone to mow for them, so he gave it to us.

I think I only cut the extension cord once. The cord didn't really get in the way, as the handle pivoted. When I got to one end of the yard, I pulled the handle back and continued mowing. I would start out nearest the outlet, and work my way across to the other side of the yard.

I usually only did the front yard with it, but sometimes the back. It worked well for about 4 or 5 years, until the motor burned out while mowing the back yard. We had a shed about 75' from the house, that had electric, and it was plugged in there. I think the wiring was too small, and there was a lot of voltage drop, causing the motor to overheat.
