How can I find out the capacity of an older Kenmore Advantage gas dryer model # 79801? I need a new dryer but want a larger capacity than my old one.

    You do some fairly simple math: V=πr²h – isherwood Jan 22 at 19:00
  • Is there a longer model # somewhere? Maybe on the back near the power cord, or possibly a metal plate inside the door? – manassehkatz-Reinstate Monica Jan 22 at 19:11
  • Instead of spending all this time looking up the model, why not just pull out a simple tape measure and figure out the volume like isherwood suggested? Seems it would have taken 1 minute to do that vs an hour + looking for the model online – Eric F Jan 22 at 19:35

    I tried googling and found this: shopyourway.com/questions/1149637 which is the identical question you are asking. The answerer stated that the full model number is 110.87980100. Based on that and searching again I get shopyourway.com/questions/1149653 which states for model 110.87980100 the capacity is 7.0 cu ft – Eric F Jan 22 at 19:45
