I found this dryer but donít know much about it. Looks extremely clean, asking $107. Does anyone know anything about these? I need a dryer as my Maytag is out of service at the moment and wondering if this would be a good buy.

KitchenAids were great laundry machines.

These are really good dryers. I'd buy it if it were near me.

KitchenAid dryers are Whirlpool.

The unit of question is a 1990 model-year (W in 8th position).† 3rd week (Jan 17-21) of 1994 factory production date (serial D03).

It's excellent depending on the overall condition.† Moisture-sensor auto dry (with mechanical timer).† Four heat temperatures (High, Medium, Low, Extra Low), plus Air Tumble on the timer.† A whistler signal when the lint filter gets overly clogged.† Drum light.† Smooth Guard at end of the auto Permanent Press cycle continues intermittent (a few seconds every 5 mins) air tumble for up to 40 mins after the drying cycle otherwise ends to avoid wrinkles if the items aren't unloaded immediately (opening/closing the door to unload ends Smooth Guard, the timer will continue to advance to Off without the machine running any further).

I'd say that's a good price and it appears to be very low use. It's a 29" Whirlpool design that has been around since the mid 1960s but this older one is much better built than models made in the last 20-ish years.

1994 KA Electric Dryer

This is one of the best dryers ever built and certainly better than any Maytag dryer ever built.


I pulled this exact dryer into our shop last week and am going to use the control system from it for a custom Whirlpool dryer I am building for my outdoor laundry.


This KA also has an electronic dry sensor.


Is this dryer at 2nd Chance in Baltimore ?, the price label looks like their 3 level pricing, I love 2nd Chance.

Second chance is my favorite and now I have another reason to go back today! Hopefully somewhere along the way I will be able to come across a matching washer, Iíd really love a set.
