Hello all, I just had a question regarding this model dryer I have. I was told it was a 1990 model, but with this style control panel with the straight pattern lines for ďstyleĒ, Iíve never seen a matching washer with the same matching control panel as my dryer has. Iíve seen the black ones and the clean touch ones but never this.

If anyone knows if this machine was produced with a matching washer let me know, just curious thatís all. Iíll post the model number and several photos below. Thanks!!

1990 model-year.

Serial 40th week (Oct 28 - Nov 2) of 1992.

There was an LA8860XWQ washer, which would be a reasonable match per the model.

Electric dryer version is LE8860XWQ vs. gas being LG8861XWQ.

They must be super rare, cause I cannot find a photo anywhere of a matching set.

Iím pretty sure I have the matching washer. Picked it up for parts as I believe itís been out of operation for quite some time. Itís the extra large=standard capacity version with the dual action agitator.

Can you post a photo of it in here? Iíll be able to tell if it is or isnít I just wondered and was curious because Iíve never seen a photo of a matching one to the dryer.
