Yeah, with shaded panels.

Hope they go to a good home.

Harvest Gold 806 matched sets in good condition are few and far between.

I believe that's one year only dryer. HOH, with the gold console.

That is correct. 1975 was the only year for HOH and the Sunglow console. An Aunt of mine bought a Maytag set in 1975.

"I believe that's one year only dryer. HOH, with the gold console."


And yet there's another pair like this in Avocado listed in Shoppers Square. What are the odds that two would show up at the same time?

Harvest gold and avocado green are fall colors and that could explain why both of these Maytag A806 popped up for sale at the same time.

Great looking set! And the listing is still up.
I'm surprised they didn't get grabbed fast for that price.
I'd love to have a matching set like that. But, not working on them myself, vintage probably isn't practical for me, realistically.
It pains me though, that my in-laws broke up and gave away a matched harvest gold set like this.
I don't know exactly what models, but they had lighted panels.
Something went wrong with the washer, and their logic was; "It's old. Let's just replace it."
So, they got a new Maytag, which they hated, and let the appliance guys haul away the washer.
The perfectly fine dryer, they gave to a friend to use at their lake house.
