they've tried to sell this before on Ebay. They have no mental faculties.

Oops, that's where longevity within helps out. I'll leave it there for humor - or if Robert wants to delete all this, it won't be missed. :-) thanks Bob!

And most anyone who would pay that money for that machine would need to be placed in a mental facility.

That's the same guy who had a beat up turquoise Maytag washer & dryer for $1500 on ebay last year.   I contacted the seller to arrange to come look at them (and make a realistic offer) but the guy was like "unless you are going to buy them at my price, don't waist my time" and very unwilling to budge!   He (surprisingly) relisted them a few months later and came down $500.


He also currently has this ratty old Westinghouse refrigerator he's TRYING to get $1000 for.

This seller definitely has rust on the brain!

I totally agree with Sandy's breakdown!

so one mentioned - is this one of those obscure, cheap (WCI-like or worst) appliances that missed being scrapped when it was discovered in a barn or ? who knows...

Otherwise..if not unmentionable...has anyone seen these restored and working ? I'm curious as to what powered it, how does it sound and how well did it work?

Otherwise, if a POS then and always ....

Pass the ammunition.

Yes,pass the ammo alright for that Launderall-9 bucks would be a fair price-as is-that machine is a range target!Guess it was lovingly removed from the shed or barn.That sellers stock is mostly JUNK!!! at botique prices!

Found this in a search... Five years later, the seller still has this machine. (Not really surprised!)
$499.99 is the current asking price.

I'd love to see someone buy this with eBay's $75.99 SquareTrade warranty and try to make a claim!
