Found these on E-bay while surfing today. Appear to be in pretty good shape and I'm fairly certain based on the controls that the washer would be a TOL unit for that time? They also have all the original manuals with them.

Thought someone in that area might be interested. The link is listed below.

Notice that they have the units in their living room... what a dream come true! :)

These babies are from the later 70's - 1980 is when they put the main dial to the right of the console.

Late '70's. I had a gas dryer of this vintage. Gave many years of good service. Nice looking set!

Dave, these were not TOL or 2nd from TOL. This was a one-speed washer. Even blowing up the picture, I can't tell if this was a Fabric-Matic model or just a simple 1-speed washer. Some of the Fabric-Matic models had fabric buttons where the speed buttons would normally be. And other model had the flat "dummy" fill-in on the panel and the fabricmatic cycles were on the timer knob.

Looks like a plain single-speed to me---in any event, a good machine!

In case no one else happened to notice as I did, the Model's of both the Washer and Dryer were listed at the lower part of the listing on E-Bay. IMHO, I don't know why no one else did notice them there. I'm surprised that everyone else missed them. I'm not trying to sound like a jerk about this, I'm just passing on info, that obviously was overlooked, so everyone else would know the info now. There were listed in the area where it says: Ask the owner question's. The Model Number's according to the answer there are:

electric dryer model #DE308 washer model #A107

Maybe and hopefully this will help us all out with knowing at least an approximate age of these machine's. I would certainly like to know for my curiousity...

Peace and best always, Steve

the A107 is the beginner model Maytag Highlander.It's a single speed large capacity washer.Probably one of their best built most dependable models.I still enjoy my avacado green A806 I found at a dealership nearby 4 years ago.It has never been serviced and has no leaking oil anywhere.I did replace the inlet hoses,jet spray nozel and belts.
