look like perforated tub"marathon"machines,possibly early ones-though the one with
the white lid underside might be from the '90s?

I could be wrong....but does not have the features of solid tubs....

the "Q" is not there on the front panel

the splash shield should be attached to the top rim, instead this is a Raytheon machine from the 80's, not McGraw/Edison, outter tub assembly is on a pivot....these also have a self-clean filter ring

also the front panel for front access should have a 2 inch toe kick indent for the screws......these have the flat front all the way down with only 2 access screws

not to mention you can't see the top of the chrome cap for the agitator......the agitators in these commercial machines did not have a post up past the four vanes

but its nice to dream that they would have been Solid Tubs....thanks for the post

The UNBALANCED light on the panel is the tip off. It is a perf tub Marathon machine.
