Check out this portable washer I listed on eBay.

I figured someone on here may want this.

The base needs some work but otherwise it is in good condition.

And it works!

Neat. A Washer disguised as a sump pump!

oh myyyyyy, it's so portable, too. Fits in my work drawer with the tools and other pumps. To think, these were made so recently, too!

Still trying to move that AMI washer! *LOL*

Have one as well (purchased NIB) but rarely use.

Kidding aside where do you think GM got the idea for their "jet action" washing machines? If you look at GM's patents they reference the original AMI washer patents.

Just as with GM's pulsator washers these AMI units kick up tons of froth. As such they recommended using a low suds product.

The wash action is really rather through, in many ways just like the Frigidaire.
