Hey me out here. These were my first "modern" set that I bought years and years ago. I sold them with a house a long time ago. Well...this set has come up close to me and I would like to get them. Who really made them? Are any parts for these still available if they stop functioning?

I remember really enjoying these.

now those are different!

They were made by Philco in Italy I suspect somewhere in the early 1980s. See my thread in the Pink forum entitled Bendix 7133, Same machines instrisically and cracking performers!

I'd love to have them so badly!
Philco/Kelvinator/Bendix machines made in Italy all were of a such great quality!!

The Bendix or Thor versions come up on ebay in Oz every now and then too....they seem to have been reasonably reliable (weell, the washers were...combo machines less so)

Hi Guy.

I'd say 'go get them!'.

They look great and myself and the other half (he has already commented on this thread - the machines live at his place and I make do with a modern Bosch washer dryer at my place) are enjoying using our Bendix 7133 washer and 7448 dryer.

Machines definitely manufactured by Philco in Italy.

p.s link to Rob's thread attached below and it contains links to my youtube videos of the machines.

I have been e-mail with the guy today. I was only going to take the dryer...but maybe now I'll do both. We will see. How heavy is the washer? Parts availability? I remember that I replaced the pump on my old one a few times!
