Okay guys, seems like my luck is still holding out. The crusher arrives tomorrow afternoon, but I hope to save this one before it shows. I managed to snag the top/console that was loose, the rest of the machine..with chrome trimmed door and giant oval window, will hopefully come home tomorrow when I get off work. The button that activates the panel light also says Tub Light, is it true? Is there actually a tub light?! Any guesses on the year, or does someone else in the club have one?

This is my first front-loader and first Westy to boot, so I'm eager to know everything about it! (Assuming the recycler doesn't show early)

You really are having good luck Cory! Yes, there would be a tub light in this one. My guess is early 70's but some members will know the exact year. I haven't found any westy's yet :-( Hope you get the machine tomorrow, keep us posted!

My college room-mate had this very same machine at his parents home. It was harvest gold and they had the matching dryer. They got them in the fall of 1970. I always thought they were so beautiful....

Excellent find! Keep us posted on the rest of the machine, I hope it's in as good of shape as this top looks. This looks like a very similar machine to the one I found (top-load) this summer which was about a '68. They made this panel style for several years and the TOL is wonderful looking. Parts are still readily available so it should be easy to get back to
