Hello all,
I have what I believe is a 1960ís brown Whirlpool RCA electric dryer.
Model #LPE5610E0
I recently removed it from our family ski cabin where it has been seldom used for the last 40 years. It is in pretty good shape.
I wondered if it had any value as a vintage collectible? I couldnít find much info, but if it had value to someone I didnít want to just haul it away.

Thanks for any info and help

Thatís a nice looking whirlpool dryer you have there. According to the serial number it was built in 1966. If you are looking to get rid of it hopefully it will go to someone who would appreciate it. As far as value goes, in my opinion, itís worth what a working dryer would sell for. It is in nice condition for sure and parts are still available for it.

If anyone would like to have it for its vintage nature, you are welcome to have it.
We are located in South Lake Tahoe.
It works well and I would be happy if it went to someone who wanted it rather than just haul it away.

I hope someone can save this vintage Whirlpool dryer.

Thank you for offering it here first and not just getting rid of it! That was very thoughtful of you.
