The first one on the left ...

looks to be a 1965 Kenmore 800 washer.

Parents had that one back in the day.

A nice 1965-1968 Kenmore 600 or 70 series.  Very nice looking still.  Ugh!!!

The range I think might be a Roper made one from the early 90s. Probably electronic ignition.

I know it's how the world works... but that listing title of "Scrap Metal" vs "Vintage Appliances" or something similar is rough.

That's how the Facebook world works around here. No interest in anything vintage unless it's a car, truck or some kind of vintage home decor made from pallets.

If anything old involved it's mostly "Gee how much scrap is it worth or can it make me any money without doing any work?"

If they have been on the curb this long, they are probably gone by now. Unless someone here already grabbed them... what a shame

Kenmore Washer

lotsosudz's profile picture
The washer is a 1967, 600 Series washer, with a fountain filter, and a straight vane agi. 3 cycles, Normal, PP, and delicate. 3 water levels, hot/cold warm/cold, cold/cold, any other combination, you had to wait for the wash fill and change the temp manually. Parents had one. Turned out to be a lemon right out of the gates.

Exactly what I was looking for, lemon or not...

Kenmore washer:

Actually that's a 1966 Model 70 with the black Super Rotoswirl and scrubber cap as well as self clean filter. The differences in control panel aesthetics are very very subtle, but you can see that the part of the console behind the dial is slightly indented, allowing for the fixture for the backlit dial.
