Would love to have another set

This was on the same street we just moved from in LA to Pasadena!
Oh well. Using the LK 800 in Pasadena. But this would be a good back up set for there.

Well I got them!

They ended giving them to me for free as they had to get them out. I had a hard time finding someone to get them and paid $200 for them to pickup and deliver and setup. So I'm happy and the couple who bought the house didn't want them trashed. So everyone is happy.

A single woman had them and lived in a beautiful tudor for the last 65 years.

She had all the original paper work and books as well as all service records since the purchase in 1979 of the set.

So they had very minamal use and excellent care!

Have a great holiday weekend there in California too!

I wish I could have gotten them, but at least they went to a good home. I am having trouble trying to sell the 2006 Kenmore FL set. The Kenmore FL set is in okay shape, but I need to install the new control panel since the one that is on there got a little damaged from the wind storms last December. I also have a early 90's Maytag electric dryer I also need to sell.

I would have gotten that A806 set, but the dryer unfortunately wasn't a Halo Of Heat model. The Stream Of Heat dryer design isn't a bad design, but it isnt as interesting as a Halo Of Heat dryer.

One day I'll own a Maytag Halo Of Heat dryer, but I don't know if I'll get one anytime soon.
