Finally, I managed to find the clip with the washing machine that at you can adjust the spining speed while the machine it's spining-drying. I like very much this feature... if you exagerate with the speening speed, you can make it spin slowly while it's working. So, I'm curios how relaible where this machines, if they where made for Continental Europe too and if other brands made machines with this facility too.

Very reliable washing machines by Philips, glad you like it, although its not a good idea to mess with the speed controller as could damage it, I showed that for demonstration purposes, although I suspect many kids did it for fun when mum wasn't looking !!

This feature was made easier to use on the Philips machines as they had a Permanent Magnet Motor , (Permag) developed by them. Its still going strong in its new place of display !!

So it is your washingmachine. I dind't think that the man who posted it on youtube will answer, because on youtube I dind't see no newer answers.
I dond't want to play with the spining speed at every washing, but when I feel necesarly to adjust the speed when the machine is working, to be able to do so.

Uh, you have quyte a lot of machines!

Mike, that Bendix set - I am GREEN with envy!!! Such awesome machines. Also, seeing those boxes of OMO and Radiant has transported me back to my childhood as both were a frequent sight in Mum's kitchen. A box of Tide with the smiley faced woman on the front would be the trifecta!!
