Saw an ad for this JCPenney set this weekend on the Facebook marketplace.

Hopefully someone can save them.

I'd love to have the washer, as it matches my JCPenney dryer, just don't have the availability or means this week to go get them.

I believe they are in Wilkinsburg

Always enjoyed perusing the appliances @ JCP, 2nd floor.  The salespeeps occasionally got concerned about a youngster moseying around the area.

This looks like a TOL or near TOL set. Programmed washer cycles and I believe JCP called their quick cycle Rapid Wash which used the handwash agitator and water level but shortened the regular cycle.

Extra BIG 8 CF Dryer

combo52's profile picture

These were cool dryers, and some of these even had a 30,000 BTU gas burner, GE downsized their extra large dryers to a 27" wide 7 CF machine that never worked as well because these huge dryers were too expensive to build and would not fit through the doors of many buyers homes and thus got returned.


But these were probably about the best dryers that GE ever built, the huge diameter drum really allowed things like jeans to dry without wrinkles. And the good news is they mostly use standard GE dryer parts so they are easy to fix and keep running.

John, when were these produced and when did GE reduce the size to 27" wide 7 cu. ft. dryers?  Curious as to which category my spring 1978 dryer fell into? I do remember realizing the dryer was wider than the washer.
