RUN to get these, anyone who is looking for 806's.

AD: "Vintage Avocado green Maytag automatic washer and dryer set. Both work great, although the dryer is noisy and squeaky. Dryer cord is updated to 4 prong plug. Set dates back to the mid 60s to early 70s. Back panel lighting still works!

Washer -- A806
Dryer -- DE806

Asking $175 OBO, cash only. Must pick up (both appliances are heavy!) "

Hello @ovrphil

I was wondering if the "A806 Washer and other dryer - $150 (Bethlehem)" had been sold, as following the Craigslist link leads to post not found page. If not, I would be interested in knowing more about them.

Thank you

If I owned or knew what happened to my postings I'd either be a huge warehouse alongside Combo52, or be accused of being invasive, following the buyers of the appliances.

I still get emails from people who ask if I have these postings for sale.

It's a life.

Well said, Phil

And worse, some of us who have benefited from you labors can't even remember which machine you found for them. Like me! Can you remember which machine you posted that I bought? Was it the Lady K with the clear pushbutton tabs, LOL. Can't bet the farm on it, but think so.

Another warehouse next to John's--now there's a wild thought for Friday fun.

Mickeyd - I wish I had a photo of the stuff with those who decided to adopt($)the appliances and things found through hours of searching. At least I know, thanks to your comment, there are plenty of others who added to their hobby value. There were some pretty good finds, I know Combo52 decided on a red Frigidaire stove that I won't forget...and the Maytag set that was rare to find. I love your Lady Kenmore! Thanks for commenting. Stay safe and I guess, wash and dry when there's nothing going on elsewhere, right? :-)
