Looks like an 80's GE Filter Flo in nice condition on ebay. No mini basket or mini basket setting from what I can see on the control panel. Truly a good workhorse and probably cheap to boot if you are close by.

I saw a very similar model at Salvation Army yesterday, nice condition and very clean...$65. I always check the back panel for signs of oil leaks - a common problem with these era machines. The good thing is, the tranny is fairly easy to replace and inexpensive for a good washer.

(There was also a Duet (blue trim) for $150 and several other SQ, WCI, Etc. )

I looked at a filter flo at a local thrift store last weekend too! It appeared to be a 60S low end and had a V and #14 on the control panel. I passed it up, I would love to find one with lights!

Wow Don, a V-14, I would have picked it up even if it was BOL! Seeing ANY 1960's washer down here in Texas takes a miracle!

Greg!!! Did you grab the Duet?

Hey Greg,
That is wild that you found a Duet at a thrift store for $150.
Did you grab it? Could you see anything wrong with it from looking at it?

Duet at thrift store

As expensive as those thngs are new, you could spend quite a bit of money fixing it and still come out ahead, especially if you fix it yourself.

The Duet looked used, but in reasonably good condition. Being one of the early models, it had the door-window sprayer (discontinued last fall I believe) that left quite a white film of hard water deposits. I didn't bring it home as I already have one and from my experience, not having the matching dryer and being a front-loader takes a little more effort to sell and the profit margin just isn't good enough for that initial investment of $150. I think the average "used appliance shopper" doesn't want to spend upwards of $300 on a washer. When they start showing up behind the stores, the time/parts/profit ratio will be a lot better.
