30 miles from me....but I am not a fan of avocado. Scarce set for someone up here to get hold of??!!
He's asking $200. for the set or $100 each. I personally wouldn't split them up!

Apache Junction. That is a bit of a drive for me as well. About 30 miles as well. These are nice machines, even the color, but however they aren't special enough to stuff in storage or to move something else out.


If someone is intrested in them, I can pick up and hold. Let me know.

I was about to send you a message about these and realized I am not a special enough member here to send direct messages! You're a good man to offer to pick up and hold....I am sure one of the members on this site will want these.

It is not that you aren't special, you just haven't paid for the extra benefits.

It does, but it is only $12 for the year.(as I recall) Besides, Robert charges just to cover some of his expenses for running this site.

I believe these are 1974 models - Gordon could verify.  My mother had this dryer in  white and my grandmother had this washer in Harvest.

You are probably right. My guess was circa 1968-72ish based on what Kenmore stuff my family had at the time. I'm just glad that colour went away. Never did like it!

People who built the house next to our lake house, bought this set in white in late 1973/early 1974.  My best friend form high, his mom got the washer , to replace a 1960 Kenmore 80 alphabet washer.  It had the quiet pack and was very very quiet.  She got hers in the fall of 1973.  This model replaced the Kenmore 800 I believe.  It has a spotlight over the timer on both models.
