Handsome looking machines, these - am I right in guessing probably mid-late 1970s build date for these? They'd obviously ditched the "Lady Kenmore" marketing by this point. No heated rinse option, I notice - so presumably this is a middle-of-the-line machine?

Late '70s early 1980s, I believe that Kenmore was still using the Lady Kenmore marque as of this time as well as "Sears Best" for TOL models, this wasn't even close to TOL. This is a rather featured standard capacity model. The Lady K for the year would have been large capacity and used a dual-action agitator. Many say these are fine machines, if you can tolerate the slow spin.

This has to be one of the last belt-drive models from the mid-80ís before they started transitioning to DD. This same model I believe was converted to DD in Ď86. I remember these on the appliance showroom floor when I was a kid growing up Iím Houston. Always loved the brown agitator and the bed-of-nails filter.

With the cycle label 'COTTON/STURDY', this should be between 1981 and 1986.
