Seller makes no mention of operational condition, but is looking for best offer.  $25 perhaps??


It's a bolt-down model, which can be a pain for installation, but on a positive note it doesn't need the door boot!

Primitive and built like a tank, IMO. At least its automatic. Owner should not have arthritic hands and fingers because there is going to be a lot of tangles to undo. IIRC there is a red bakelite knob on top that you can start for either a hot or warm wash. Just turn to set and pull up on knob.

Neat looking beast

It's cool looking although for me, it has memories of the "iron lung" which some of my mom and dad's friend's kids were confined to.

I bought that machine and am sending transit Systems to fetch it.Hose the seller,said he plugged it in and it would tumble and spin so the changer is good for starters.I have always wanted one of these so it will be a nice addition to the E-Z Sudsit Laundromat at my future home in Woburn the Hotel Costa Plente. I wanted to thank Paul the turqoisedude dude for posting this it was a pleasure hanging out with you at Jons house back when and now you have gone and done me this major solid thanks so much if you are ever in the hood you can come see it.

Great and congrats, benidxmark. Though my associations are not intended to bring any offsets to the excitement of the acquisition, I'm hoping people will laugh at my associations and not look too much further. Cool machine! It also reminds me of something of a diving bell. If I was a kid and could haul it to the water....I'd drown in it, for sure, pretending I was deep sea diving.

...will be looking for your videos on it ...if I don't get too distracted with posting in S. Square!

These have always caught my eye! I like the rounded top and of course, who doesn't like that round window!

Can't wait for the videos & pics.
