I also found the old fashioned Speed Queen washer/dryer at the Nebraska
Furniture Mart that has stores in Omaha, Kansas City, and Dallas.  

If the LG washer/dryers that I bought generated RFI, they agreed I could
return in exchange for the Speed Queen.  But didn't have to do that since
the LG models where both quiet.

On that note...

After figyhting RFI on multiple washer/dryer sets (adding filters,
re-routing VFD cables,
etc) I was finally able to find what I was looking for all along.

SpeedQueen washer/dryer sets are still made.

While they have VFD type and non VFD with electronic controls, they still
have one model of dryer and one model of washer that are pure old-school
electromechanical.  Straight timers/switches on the dryer, and same on
washer with a classic pressure-column water depth regulator.

They are not available via big-box stores, or in any show-room but 2 of the
local suppliers that deal with commercial/apartment/etc markets stocked

No switchers or electronic controls at all.  (On the electromechanical
models only, they make 30+ models with full electronic controls as well).
