I knew that Apex made washers and dryers, but I had no idea that they also made dishwashers and vacuum cleaners. And check out that top loading portable dishwasher, it has a windowed lid! Every dishwasher should have one as far as I'm concerned.

Contemporary appliances-

are not nearly as entertaining!

What we might have gained in ease of use, versatility, safety, and efficiency, we have surely lost in fun.

Love and laughter!

Great POD; saved this one! Cool washers; I hope someone finds one eventually and saves it!

Robert, was this the Apex machine you had back in '96? Also, how rare are the Apex dryers?

Not just his appliances, his bathrooms have windowed doors, I woke up one night and he and Neal were installing windows on my bedroom door, he put a window on my luggage for the scanners, and wanted to install a window on Aloysius to see inside! I put a stop to that!

First things first--Jon, you're such a good daddy protecting Aloysius. I love the expression on his face in that picture.

Now for the Apex pic. I think the cabinet for the washer & dryer are one of the most dynamic and have such "futuristic" lines I've ever seen. Truely modern for sure.

Jon that is the first picture that I have seen of Al, I can see why you are taken with him. That picture is worth a thousand words. Terry

Awwhttp://www... Al is such a sweetie - looks much calmer tonight than Jack, bouncing off the walls as we speak. I think he's nervous about having four more wars, I mean years!

Back to the POD - notice the portable dishwasher had a water heater with increasing temps as the cycle progresses. I wonder if the user had to plug it in prior to turning it on or if the water heating was automatic? Plug it in set it and it heats the water then runs through the cycle...might have been dependent on 160F incoming water for that first fill too? So many questions - anyone have a users manual out there?

Oh, what a handsome guy!

What a very appealing Bull Terrier!! So nicely marked, too.

(and I am ordinarily a cat guy....)

Spiral Tub Agitator

OK guys, I give! Was the Apex a Agitub? I'm confused!

Hi Austin, yes that was the exact washer I had, but lets not talk about my lost Apex its depressing enough, especially this morning. It was sort of an agi-tub, but it washed by bouncing the tub, not by moving back and forth. What looks like a agitator in the middle was simply a hump to help balance the load.

As for the dishwasher, my guess would be that it runs the heater through the cycle, but only stops to heat the final rinse water. But who knows, maybe it has a seperate water tank for heating and waits to start the wash until the tank is heated.

Slapping? I think not!

You'd better watch it mister Unimatic. I'm very fond of that dog so don't you even think about laying a finger on it!!! You might end up getting a very hard European slap yourself!!! Put a window on your own dog!!!

Slaping Al? Never

unimatic1140's profile picture
Calm down Louis, that slapping isn't meant for Al. It's was meant for Al's owner, and he knows who he is. :)

Thank You All

Al is a real gift! Thank you Peter, you'll have to come up to Boston sometime and meet him in person!

Uncle Louis: Its so nice to see how protective you are towards your nephew! I knew Uni wasn't talking about slapping Al he loves AL too. Its my fabulous collection he's jealous of, poor dear!

Al is going to Vermont for the weekend! As the Beach Boys say "He gets around"!

I didn't think he was going to slap Al but you. But I was quite furious about his vicious plan to put a window on Aloysius!!! When I think of it again.... In the meantime I hope Al has a wonderful time in Vermont. Should be wonderful there this time of the year!
