Hey fellas,

I'm having an appliance daydream, but I figured I'd try out the "wanted" list of dream machines. I'm sure we can all appreciate that, just like we can appreciate that I'm not holding my breath. I'm not a stickler on color, just as long as they match each other. I think out of all the machines, these are the "winners" that I don't own in my book.

1) 1962 Kenmore 70 series washer in white to match my dryer.
2) 1956-1957 Kenmore set
3) 1959 Westinghouse L-1000 and D-1000 (I'm not holding my breath).
4) 1955-1963ish Tappan Microwave (or it's rebadged versions)
5) Early 60's Kitchen Aide Superba 14 series... I'd love a portable, but built in would be ok.

Anyone else care to add their dream machines?

Well, I really shouldn't be looking but geez, I'd have to drop everything and run for a Tappan Dual-Drench dishwasher or an early 60s Westinghouse pull-out!  If I bring home another washer this year, I'll be in big trouble... LOL

My folks had a 1960 home with a PINK Ge pullout dishwasher and a PINK GE wall oven WITH ROTISSERRIE, oh would those 2 things bring back memories. And your 1962 Kenmore washer in the first picture----Mom washed my 2 kid brother's diapers in that very model, and I was old enough to remember H stood for HOT, W for warm, since I was SO much older than the diaper boys and I was learning the alphabet!

And while I love Frigidaire 1-18's, a 60's Rollermatic model would be very cool.

D 1000

ClassicCaprice. I have that exact dryer in your wish-list picture. If you want it, it is yours. The dryer operates, the lights work & it has the end-of-cycle chime. The only issue is the control center needs some work & I do not have the expertise to do it myself. If you want it, let me know.

I don't know if the coppertone's I posted are A806's but they could the shaded ones you posted, Will.

Wrong coast, but I have a lead on a pair a bit closer to here.  Will post in a few days, if it works out.

Hey brainardcooper, I emailed your att address on your profile. :) We can make it happen as early as next weekend if you'd like.

This place is unhealthy. Here's another pair I've never seen(nor probably will). Good grief..did the USA actually make machines like this? I thought the Kenmore LK set in pink were gorgeous, as well.

The stars are receding ever so slowly..but these machines are like shooting stars. Too bad there's not a Renaissance in design to bring the beauty back.

But..that would break all the analytic rules, I guess.

Thanks for posting the photos - I'll know what to keep if I see them myself. LOL.

I appreciate you thinking of me BrainardCooper. I've loved that design for years and it's my personal holy grail. Email/call me and I'll be there ASAP.

Phil, That pair is in the combo52 museum in Maryland. They are like new and even better in person.

Something on my "do it or lose it" list

I really hope to see that museum, meet up with the owner(s) one day.

I'll have to get into Navy Seal condition, or the heart won't take the visual

onslaught of vintage goodness. LOL.

Dream List

So many beautiful appliances of yesteryear, so many choices... I would have to say these are the ones I want more than anything:

1. Frigidaire Unimatic and Filtrator Dryer
2. 1958 RCA Whirlpool Timeline Washer
3. 1965 Lady Kenmore set
4. Late 50s early 60s GE Filter Flo, like the one Robert has (drool).
5. Matching Dryer to my 1955 Whirlpool with Suds Saver
6. Matching Washer to my 1956 Whirlpool Gas Dryer
7. Kenmore with the "Lint Waterfall" feature, I think it's quite neat to see.
8. RCA Whirlpool Appliances (I'm a sucker for RCA Whirlpool).

Hey everyone, it's been a while. I got the D-1000, thanks to Brainard. Still looking for the rest.

Now I've got two more Westy dryers (1958)
to find washers to mate with.

Add a L-110 and/or L-112... I'd be willing to combine the two dryers into one or mate them both. I could recreate a westy showroom!

That looks like a pair of 1958 Westinghouse W-1000 and D-1000 machines? I know because a late friend had that same pair 20 years ago. Both were in use but I remember the washer had a bad escapement he said and when he found a NOS one he was too cheap to pay the $100.00 for it. Not sure what happened to them after he died. He was an appliance service tech for 40 years and got them from the original owner. I ended up getting a mint 1962 A101 at the estate sale and didnt think to inquire about the Westys. Prob scrapped.

I Have...

An exact Maytag 806 set - same color - Harvest Gold - gas dryer, in good shape if you're interested. Purchased them 3 years ago, they've been sitting in storage since. With 3 other sets of 806s, not really interested in keeping. Wanting to "thin the herd" at this point. Will be posting others as more progress is made.

Reply #18 - Westinghouse W/D- 1000's

ovrphil's profile picture
John - that photo came from a search I did, but it's actually(as mentioned above) one of many goodies Combo52 has in his collection. Page to see more of these if you're interested: Could these be the same set owned by your friend who didn't want to spend $100 on a NOS part?

If these came from CT years ago they prob are the same ones. My friend passed in 1999 so these went to a dealer that buys estates then either sold or scrapped. My friend had several old washers including Easy, Locomotive, and a 2 tub Westinghouse from the 30's and a Westy L-4-48 so hopefully they knew these late 50's ones were collectable also even though they were his dailys. I think the tub on the washer or dryer was brazed where it mounted because it broke or cracked. Ive never heard of any others.

Oh yeah, I remember to turn the panel light on you held in the "W" badge in front a few seconds LOL

LOL. Robert I have a 68 800. I don't guess I need anoth

classiccaprice's profile picture
Let's see.

John (oldskool)- I found a pair of gold panel 806's in avocado (forgot to mention), but if you were closer I'd recommend you to my friend Evan, he's been lusting over mine.

john (robbinsandmyers)- That would be so sad if they got scrapped. Personally I think they are the most beautiful set of laundry machines ever made.

Jerry- I actually am just about to start the D-1000. It's going to be my February project. I got distracted with the 54-ish Blackstone pair I found. As sometimes we need to temper our dreams, I think I may have to steal some parts off the 58 Custom Imperial (they share the same timer controls) and I think between the two I can make one. I'm starting to debate selling the '62 Kenmore dryer and whatever is left of the 58 Westy dryers when I finish with the D-1000... Limiting my list to a L-1000, the Tappan microwave, A Blackstone mangle to match my washer and dryer and the KDS-14 series (portable or built in) might be the best for my budget and my room. Hmm... I may have to make a revised dream list thread after I get through with the D-1000.
