Can't help but love a Unimatic.

They have such a soothing sound when Pulsating

I never cease to be amazed at how quickly the water is thrown from the tub when spinning begins. Very cool. Congratulations and here's wishing you many trouble-free loads.

Nice machine, and I especially like the model with the two deep rinses they really rinsed well.

I have also found a dozen or more of these machines over the years that had no major problems, many people stopped using them because of the severe tangling and vibration issues and they got Kenmore or Whirlpool washer.

Love mine too, I put it in the kitchen and it's all I've been using lately.

Pat, I'm glad to see you enjoying your machine. I think John is right. Even though I love an overflow rinse, it makes sense that two separate rinses with extraction in between is going to be thorough.
I use my WO 65-2 all the time.

Hi Frig!cool

Yeah, I think its a neat machine. I like how the transmision works. I also like the double rinse, I think it does better than just the one overflow. Love these Frigidaire washers. I wish I could find a Multi-matic some where, Id love to see how those things work. If anyone knows where a hot/cold valve is for sale for the wo-65 let me know. I had to put a newer set on the machine and it no longer has the warm rinse.

I have a WO-65-2 which is my favorite machine. It's down right now needing a torque spring but can't wait to have it humming again.

Said it before and I'll say it again. IF Frigidaire had made a machine that did not tangle clothes unmercifully from the begining, they could have well been the leader of the industry of appliances. That was the only real objection people had against them. They washed and spun out flawlessly! They were also very well built. What a shame.
