Maybe it can still find a loving home and someone willing to care.

It looks like someone in the warehouse hit it with the forklift.

That poor washer reminds me of when I bought televisions for the department store. It was illegal in California to sell a portable or table model TV with even a slight crack in the cabinet. Once the freight company paid the claim or it was written off the set went into the compactor...not as dramatic as when Goldfinger had that very nice Lincoln Continental crushed but equally as sad.

A 4,000+ lb automobile wouldn't ride that well in a 64' Ranchero, no?

Tear up an anvil

That's like someone who could f**k up a two car funeral with the graveyard next to the church. That's a Southernism.

I don't think it was hit by the forklift. I think it fell off of it. Actually- It did more than that-- IT FALL DOWN, GO BOOM! UHOH :-(

Sort of think the 4,000 lb car crushed by the Harris auto baler would weigh MORE than the Ranchero truck trying to carry it!That clip in the James Bond Goldfinger movie was an excellent demo for the Harris car body baler!
Poor SQ washer in that seller listing-wonder how much INTERNAL damage it suffered?
Well, if you had to run unsalable TV's thru the compactor you could get the satisfaction of hearing the picture tubes get popped!See and hear that on the Classic Refuse Trucks videos when the truck compactor munches a TV.And of course with RL trucks YOU control the crusher blade for desired effect!Nowadays in a lot of areas it is VERBOTTEN to crush TV's in compactors and garbage trucks-they have to be sent to the electrical-electronic goods recyclers.The pix tubes contain lead and the chemicals in the phosphors in the screen.

Looks like all it needs is a new front panel.
Mike.............I would offer $99, I think a new panel is about 100 dollars as well.

This pool soldier needs more than a front panel. You MIGHT be able to straighten out the side panel but that base frame needs replacing as well. It is very damaged and the washer will not balance properly as it is. An inspection of the milkstool, or tub support, and rear leveling legs is also needed.

Probably the same people who burn the house down trying to boil water.

My brothers euphenism: @#$%ed up as barbed wire in a boot. This phrase really requires a southern twang :-) Sorry this one went way off topic.
