My current daily driver is the Miele W3725 washer and T8423C dryer. Both excellent quality machines and do a very good job.

Perfetct now though!

Maytag Dependable Care Plus washer and electric dryer. Only had this set about 3 months, hope they last as long as our other Maytags. The washer came from a trade in pile, the dryer was off Craigslist.

My daily driver is an LG 2432 whose praises I've sung many times on this site. Daily driving will soon include a gorgeous Poppy Red 1-18(pronounced Uhn a Dees-Wheat)for soaking and entertainment.

Daily dryer

bajaespuma's profile picture
My Maytag 1996 Dryer snapped a belt a month ago so I've been doing my tumble-drying in a vintage DE806 that I have up and running. My LG spins so fast that I usually line-dry at least part of the load. I popped an old Maytag vent screen bag over the vent so I retain the heat and moisture(with a smidgeon of lint) in the basement until the warm season begins. I have to say, there's something wonderfully simple about those old HOH Maytags. I'm usually all about buttons and more buttons, but this appliance is an icon of simplicity. No decisions; just pop the clothes in and push in the dial(usually set on "Regular"). They come out perfectly dry, with just a hint of moisture in them. and I love that cute little "ding" five minutes before the cycle's over.
Good job Maytag!

As soon as I get my big AIG bonus, I'm going to buy a new 7+ cu. ft. GE(or LG, maybe) gas dryer, but until then...

I would love to have this set

Todd (varicyclevoice) gave me this Whirlpool ad, I wouldn't mind having a set of these, love those pushbuttons.

PS: I think that's me in a former life by the stacked set.

Can you do a larger scan of that Whirlpool ad? That's my all-time favorite Whirly pair! The last 3-speed belt drive.

Here is a larger Whirlpool ad.

That's better, the description blurbs are readable. Is the original clear enough and of sufficient size to read the text on the controls? If so, the washer & dryer could be done as separate scans to keep the image size manageable. If not, it's OK as-is. Thanks!

Post# 336072 , Reply# 20   3/17/2009 at 23:39 (4,852 days old) by autowasherfreak ()        

I sent you the larger scans as separate pages. I used PhotoShop to make it one single page and I think it was reduced in size when I saved it. Let me know if you receive the scans and if they need to be larger.


Post# 336073 , Reply# 21   3/17/2009 at 23:41 (4,852 days old) by autowasherfreak ()        

I'm going to try and scan just the controls and make them larger and hopefully they will be readable.

And This Piece Of Utter Crap! - Hoover Vision 9kg sensor Condenser Dryer.

As you can probably tell the condenser unit is not there and im using it as a normal vented dryer. This is because the sump / pump has a lint blockage and it can't pump the water up to the tank. This means the machine thinks the tank is full and so stops. For some reason it is happy when I take the condenser out and run it as a vented dryer.To get to the sump /pump I will need to take out the drum which is not going to be an easy task so at the moment and probably for the forseable future it can stay as it is.
I have had no end of problems with this machine since I got it. What a piece of rubbish.

This has been my primary set for the last 22.5 years

kenmoreguy64's profile picture
I bought these machines brand new at age 21 while I was in college. As soon as I got a place with a connection, I went out and bought these. At the time I didn't know a lot of things, one that this was among the very last belt-drive washers made (mid August, 1986). The other is had I looked at used machines, I probably could have found some neat and plentiful 1960s gems. Delivery day was much more exciting to me than when Mom got her washers, as this one was MINE.

The washer has had a recent vacation due in part to a centerpost seal failing, which I haven't been motivated to fix, mostly because I have been using the machines that I restored this past year.

This machine is not as 'vintage' as a '72 Lady K, a '63 Kenmore 70, or even my '61 Kenmore 70, but it is my pride and joy since I was able at such a young age to buy something new of my very own.

I am a sentimental type guy, and it feels weird posting these here for everyone to see, but hopefully you can tell that I have appreciated them. I hope to have and be using these machines 22.5 years from now!

How do you like your Frigidaire's? I've had mine for almost five years and so far so good.


Post# 336298 , Reply# 41   3/19/2009 at 17:59 (4,851 days old) by toggleswitch2 ()        
May I show you mine?

The sink is to the right of the portable DW (Wood-look over black).

Thw washer uses a quick-connect "portability" fill and rinse coupler with hoses, that I added later.

The dryyer came to me via Connecticut. (The next state). It's a 90's hotpoint electric MOL unit with a procelain drum. New belt. Uses 110v in that my apt does not have 220v available. Uses a "standard" 4 prong/conductor (flex) cord. Made a custom extension cord such that a 110v heavy-duty plug (male) feeds a heavy-duty air-condtioner extension cord. Added a standard 4 hole (female) outlet/socket, in place of the female that was there. By manipulating the conductos itn eh outlet(female) of the extnesioncord, the heating element is fed 110v insted of 220v. (This quarters the heating wattage from 5,000w to circa 1,250w +/-*). Slow, but it works!

When addtinal room humidity is desirable, most of my drying occurs on this drying rack.

But I find a 20 minute heated tumble in the dryer afterwards does wonders for removing creases and wrinkles and really helps get items bone-dry!

I find these to be excellent a great job and have had no problems. I've had them about four years. They replaced a Frigmore front load set that I gave to my son. That ten year old washer has never had a repair and is still going strong.
