I believe this was the BOL for 1956 or 1957.

BOL's - are these extinct before the TOL's or were there enough similarities in motor, etc, and only features that either could last as long?

Phil, are you asking if both BOL and TOL Hotpoint DWs were made at the same time? There were differences like a timer dial (lighted in TOL), independently rolling racks, the Spots-Away rinse dispenser and probably a few other inor features.

I was asking if BOL's reached extinction(crashed and trashed)before TOL's, possibly due to lesser quality materials used. ? I may be off , but that's why I'm asking. I didn't consider whether they were produced at the same time or spanned by some period of time. If I've learned something hanging out here, it's that BOL units may(?) have as much longevity as the TOL's, and are separated only in features and hence, price?

I want it. But it is on the wrong coast. How much would this be to ship to Arizona?

Before anyone gets serious about this machine, ask the seller for photos of the impeller. While installing a new impeller would give the best performance, if the impeller is damaged in any way, running the machine could damage the motor. The motors in old Hotpoints were very vulnerable because the drive shaft came up through a tube from the motor and the humidity from the tank often contributed to a short motor life.
