I like that first one; a good cleaning would really make it look nice!

what brand is that first dryer? Does anyone have any ideas? It's kind of hard to make out the decal on the front right corner.

And the poor Kenmore dryer. It definitely has seen better days. Have never seen that kind of control knob on a Kenmore before.

Is that first dryer a Norge??  Well, that's my scientific wild guess... LOL

Dryer number one reminds me of something from the days of Western Auto or some such ilk of a Wizzard Citation dryer.  Speed Queen would never have so many buttons.  But it kind of reminds me of a "Beam" dryer.

i was going to say like appnut, the control panel does have the wizard/bradford look to it. same style of buttons and the light across the bottom.

if i would have to guess (& i don't know much here) i would say either wizard citation or a bradford.

I think the first dryer is a Franklin based product. Could be Gibson, Kelvinator, Hamilton, or Wizard or some other store brand.

Hmmmmm...the mystery brand is probably, given that it's not too well-known, is likely to remain Washer-less....

Unless, and until, someone can find a suitable suitor for...

Yup, the first one is a Franklin built. Western Auto Citation or Gambles Coronado, etc.
