Hi everyone.  I need to do some downsizing and have decided to part with this.   It's in great shape and runs fine.  The fill valve sticks and closes very slowly so it will need to be cleaned or replaced.  The hoses are intact but really stiff.  They do not leak and hold fine under pressure.  The control dial has a small piece of the plastic cover missing.  


It is free to whoever would like it.  I also have several parts from a doner machine that  I will include (timer, pushbutton switch, wiring harness, motor & pump, washarm, tower, and washarm support) You just have to arrange shipping.   I need to have it gone by mid-July.   Pics are attached.

Nice!  Looks like a '63 model - an early TOL 'Maid for sure.   


Those hoses always seem to be brittle, but they can be replaced.  Just don't ask me for advice... otherwise it'll take you three tries to get it right... LOL

DIY jobs are often rated by the number of trips to Home Depot that are required AFTER you went there the first time and bought everything you thought you would need; you know the things that go SNAP while you are removing them or that just fall off as they are being unscrewed. Been there; done that. Have the ruined shirts as proof.

Does this machine have a Rinse dispenser?

Resurrecting this thread

First, my apologies Ken;  I never answered your question.  No, there is no rinse dispenser on this model.  


This machine is still available.  I was able to find a place to "hide" it for a while, but now it really does have to go.  It is in really good shape.    I won't scrap it, but I hate to give it to someone who won't appreciate it (& then may scrap it).


The offer for all the additional parts is still included.   I hope someone will treat themselves to a holiday gift!  I'm willing to assist with a U-Ship, C&F, etc. shipping arrangement.   


Happy holidays everyone!  :)

You are not missing much by no having one.

Mine leaked from the start and never bothered again. Simply wait until final rinse then add squirt of Jet Dry.

Suppose you can also go with the old stand buy of those Jet Dry solid in little hanging baskets.

I wish I was able to get to you, I'd definitely give it a great home! Sadly I'm up in Spokane, WA. Hope you find a home for it soon, it's beautiful!
