The following are photos of a washer that is in a house in Irwin, PA.
It has Westinghouse on it and "Commercial Laudromat".
There is a 10 cent slot on top and a money box
I need to move it or sell it.
And suggestions?

LOL, 10 cents. Last time I washed our quilt it was $7.50, I did select the extra soil and rinses.  Of course the machine was the size of a concrete mixer.  I do remember SQ TL's vended at 25 cents.  That is a nice bolt down WH.    A

The Laundromat

that was in the town where my Grandparents lived had these machines but they cost a quarter. In our town we had TL Speed Queens that cost 20 cents to wash and 25 cents to dry.

Leave the pedestal in place, you will save $250.   You will only need one for the dryer.  These days it might cost more than $250. to have it removed.  A
