well, they are new and a two speed...and a little dented......not a bad price...I wonder if their stainless or porcelain tubs...looks like the used ones I got from the military, although mine were a single speed, and I only paid 25.00

These are regular home-commercial machines [ they are the same ] these are at least 5 years old but if you can get the washer for any less than $500 and the dryer for up to $350 they are a good buy.

 

This is a two speed washer.

Questions -

If these are at least 5 years old, do they preceed the reduced fill rinse and/or the cooler version of warm - I think I've seen mentioned in other threads? Being they are in KC, worth considering at the right price if able to avoid the reduced fill rinse.

reduced WARM....not controlled by computer, more along the lines of design of the fill valve, the HOT side is a smaller opening than the COLD....a very simple fix with a drill to make them equal....some guys just fill it half way with HOT first, and then turn to WARM for the rest.....

don't let that fill flume fool you....its designed to allow water to enter the tub, and some to go behind the tub.....I altered it by sealing off the back portion so all the water fell on the clothes, especially during the spin spray...but thats just my preference!

my experience with the ones I got, the fill was TOO much, and had to reduce it down about 2 inches.....either way, again, a simple adjustment.....

add a clothes pin to the lid switch, and you have the ultimate machine for a very small fraction of the price....

kicking myself for selling all the ones I had...but I will get more!

Reduced Fill

Only certain models of the coinop machines have the reduced fill rinse as an option. Not sure what you are questioning with the reduced temperature warm. There is no automatic temperature control in these machines.

Thanks

@ Laundress for finding and posting
@ Malcolm, Yogi, & John for all information!

After searching model # online, it appears this unit does not have the SS tub. Any known issues with nonSS tubs? Seems like it would be fine.

Thanks
John

yeah, mine were porcelain too......

not big issue or deal about them.....typical dark speckle.....would have been nice to see a white one.....and prefer the stainless, but at this price, who can complain.....

a stainless one can be swapped out should you come across a donor machine....I think its just 6 bolts....really easy

willing to bet these don't have the softerner dispenser, but can be added in an instant.....

and most likely has the solid vane agitator....definately more water currents

we have a thread about these here somewhere....depending on model number and place you call for parts, prices vary in the extreme

Washer went for a bit over $330 and change! Someone got themselves a bargain.

Got It!

Will pick it up locally and if I can get my camera to work, will post some pics.

 

Thanks Launderess for your expert advice on winning a bid!
