I think it's plain white in a very drab laundry room.

Almost looks like platinum. Could be the lighting though.

It looks like a plain white and BOL Kenmore. Never been really cleaned up. I doubt you could get almond on those BOL models.

Unless they are referring to the control panel color which would resemble almond, or maybe the body is faded. But it looks quite white to me. And no, these didn't come in almond. This is bol.

I remember seeing these in ads and in the Sears store branded as Galaxy and with a brown control panel and black knobs.

fans- that was in the late 80s and 90s.

Before that they would have some with the beige control panel and chrome knobs like they used on belt-drive models of the time.

In the 70s, they would put a wood panel insert in the boxed in area for decorative purposes. And the original models in the mid 70s were color coordinated with the harvest gold and avocado models.

I find it hard to believe the ad would even say this is in color...

BOL Laundry never boasted any colors except white...
