Looks like late 90s dependable care.

The year built would be 1994 or 1995. The control panel design changed to the more rounded ones around 1997. Iím sure others can give you the exact model numbers.

Bob, they are not. They are true Mytag Dependable Care. Just has the unusual brown panel, most were the white-on-white panels. These were probably early in the Dependable Care line that was brought out. I saw one of these a friend had. And it was afteer I'd gotten my Dependable Care dryer exactly 26 years ago today.

looks to be TOL of the time....

definitely Maytags....and of course orbital drive

may even have the Load Sensor agitator....

they claim both went out at the same time.....could be the internal fuse/lid switch setup...

The washer looks like a black face version of an LAT9824. I can't decipher what the dryer is.

It's the first year for that design. The first year they were all "black face" and quickly introduced the white face that became much more common. When I moved to ATL in 1991, these were in all the big box stores. These were pre-LoadSensor.
