Thanks Gyrafoam, Lighted controls if you would post a pic one day. I would like to see this one, of course if you still have it. That one must be very rare. I dont beleive i have ever seen an e-bay advertisement from a magazine for this machine. Thanks in advance alr 2903.

When is this machine from? Must be pre-automatic days?

Maytag produced a tumble-action wringer washer for several years also. I believe it was in the early 1920s.

I ran across this 1921 Maytag tumble-action wringer washer ad today...speak of the devil! This looks like the same one you linked to in Lee Maxwell's collection, Louis. I can't wait to see the Westinghouse.
