I vaguely remember reading that some of the Maytag dryers had door windows available on the commercial models?

Window On MT SOH Dryer Door

It is either a commercial MTD or the windowed door from one.

This is an HOH, not a SOH. Pretty cool. What tv show was this from?

My favorite episode is " End Game ". The ending shocked me for a TV show of that era. I finished the box set a few months back now I'm watching Barnaby Jones. I'm looking for Quincy M.E and Land of The Giants boxed sets next.

Oh how wonderful! Would love to have a windowed door on my DE806.

I've got a window

In my DE808 dryer.
But my dryer is HARVEST GOLD and the windowed door is ALMOND. It sort of reminds me of the Westinghouse space-savers (kinda).
Excuse the mess on top of the dryer. It is currently sitting on the sidelines waiting to be used, because we are currently using my mom's modern Whirlpool dryer.

Very cool!

Why didn't Maytag offer that as an option on residential units??

Are there windowed doors that would fit earlier DE806's (blue panel)?

Sorry but I can't answer that question for you because I don't know the answer

I don't know if Maytag offered a halo-of-heat style dryer commercially? And then, if they did have commercial HOH dryers, did they offer a windowed door?

That would have to be answered by our Maytag experts here.
I'd love to know the answer too.

I'm pretty sure they did, because I remember someone (John?) saying that they were problematic in laundromats due to the lint filter design...

(edit: I should clarify - problems getting the USERS to actually empty the lint filters, not necessarily problems with the lint filters themselves.)

Hey, no worries Christina. While I'm pretty sure Maytag offered a commercial version of a HOH dryer. the question is did it come with a windowed door? I gotta' say, your dryer with the porthole looks great! Gives it that extra "luxe" touch.

I'm curious to know too, if there was windowed doors for the commercial HOH Maytag dryers.

Thanks Louis... when I seen that Maytag had windowed doors for commercial dryers, I HAD to get one! So much so that, even if the door doesn't matched the cabinet, I don't care, I got one. I look forward to using my Maytag DE808 dryer and glancing over to the window & being able to see the clothes tumbling in the drum!
