Wow, that's pretty cool.  A late one too - either a '78 or a '79 model.

The seller responded with the serial number: 80EM3582.  Model Number WS-8G (for the archives, and the Serial Project!)


If this washer was within a few hundred miles, I'd certainly pick it up...

Hey Joelippard-------any chance of a better view of the timer? IT looks like 4 cycles?

I blew up the pic, but still fuzzy and it would be great to see a better shot.

It looks like the regular cycle starts on the lower right, moves acorss the bottom, and up the lower left. So 3 cycles total--------I wonder what the KNITS cooldown cycles has different than the PERMPress CoolDown cycle?

... for the closeups, but probably gotya run it through the cycles to find the difference between KNITS and PermPress

Why of course, here you go.  I really only use the regular cycle on this one.

That's a great looking machine! Do you have any vid's of that beauty in action?
Would be nice to see it running.

Thanks guys, no I don't have any videos of it.  What I can tell you is that when I got it most of the beauty had been preserved by dust and dirt and it had a broken belt on it.  It would seem this machine was low mileage because it is very quiet for a 1-18.  Getting it going was basically turn key because it just took a little sprucing up.  I use this one more as my daily driver while preserving the Poppy 1-18 for occasional usage.
