Replace the belt and that machine will probably last another 30 yrs. They definitely don't build them like that anymore.

Colors for Phil

This style cabinet - with other styles of control panels - was offered in White, Turquiose, Yellow, Pink, (all unshaded.) Also Coppertone, Avocado, Fawn, Sapphire Blue, Harvest Gold, (all shaded), and Almond, Coffee, unshaded Avocado, unshaded Harvest. After the cabinet front indentations were removed they also came in Toast and Platinum. No shortage of colors to choose from. I don't think I missed any.

they came in many colors......harvest gold, white, avocado were most popular, brown may have still been available, don't think almond was yet....

this would be a cool machine to add to a collection....standard capacity, manual filter for drama....

most likely 4 cycles....Normal, PermPress, Knits, Gentle.....

only 2 water levels for this one....

otherwise looks to be a clean machine....

Amazing

Imagine having color options today - anything close to what was desribed,....it's really amazing.
Thanks Tom and Martin . I've been admiring some of the older Whirlpools, BD's that they are.
One such pair, not exactly this model, I've attached, belonging to one of the aw.org members. I like certain solid colors as well as certain shaded, too.

Replace The Belt and It Will Probably Last Another 30 Years

These were great washers, BUT there is no possible way that just replacing the belt will make it last anywhere close to another 30 years.

If this washer was to be used 5-10 times per week you would be very lucky to get even 5 more years use out of it.

Many NEW washers will last 30 years, you have to remember that this WP BD Washer had VERY LIGHT use to have lasted this long and the New WP BD Washers used in a similar light usage situation will easily last 30 years.

I was hypothetically speaking. I wouldn't expect any machine of that age to last that long without doing a complete overhaul. I was trying to emphasize what I felt that it was a decent built machine. Wasn't my intention to mislead and make you think that it would.

Hey Arris -

ovrphil's profile picture
maybe it's actually gone and they haven 't deleted the ad? This happened to me with a couple CL ads.

In fact, I bought a integrated stereo unit from a man, and he left the ad in CL for at least 2-3 weeks or more after I bought it from him.

Sorry no one got back to you, Jim.
