hello to all aw members,

in your hunt for old vintage machines aspecaly inglis whirlpool wasing machines has any members seen inglis whirlpool washers with simply a wash rinse temp knob no water level, because if i base myself from my childhood memory of my grandmother old inglis liberator washer it was a3 cycle push to start model it only had a wash rinse temp knob no waterlevel selector so was wondering if members have everseen older inglis whirlpool washers like this because from what i think my grandmother washer must of been pretty basic at the time if it did not have a water level selector?

Thank you for any answers

I know that my Aunt had a Kenmore like that. It had a regular, delicate & wash 'n wear cycle, a knob for hot, warm or cold water, but no level control. It filled up completely for every cycle.

Interesting, and seems an odd feature-set.  One would expect a simple hot-warm-cold temp control.

the '58 Inglis I grew up with (it died in 1975) was 1 cycle & 2 wash temps, hot or warm. No water level control, but you could move the timer ahead and around the 10 minute mark it would start agitating at whatever level the water happened to be at.
