A real Skinny Mini with the Agi-Tub.  A bit too far from me!

Tri-colored: ivory colored doors, more like discolored

with some minor discolorations that should clean up easily!

I'm not so sure about that! And that's if we can say that white that turns yellow (or Ivory!) is discolored!

120 Volt Frigidaire Skinny-Mini

combo52's profile picture
These were slow dryers if you tried to use the dryer while the washer was running, they added a relay that turned off the dryers heater and the dryers timer motor whenever the washers motor was running to keep the electrical load within acceptable limits of a 120 volt outlet.

The discolored washer lid and dryer door may be able to be bleached back toward the orignal white, but it would probably be better to just paint them white. It is interesting to note that this is the ONLY Frigidaire appliance to survive in ANY form after WCI bought the Frigidaire name from GM. It is also interesting that when WCI started selling the up dated version of this machine [ WCI immediately started installing a Franklin washer mechanism in these machines ] to GE that GE insisted that they loose the plastic dryer door and plastic washer lid because of past history of house fires that were caused by these machines. WCI also redesigned a very dangerous dryer heater element design and added a one time thermal cut out on the dryers heater, but even these improvements were not enough to keep all the fire related law suits that these machines caused to go away. WCI finally killed this very popular appliance in 1994.
