They don't make them like they used to. (That's why I'm on a hunt)
My washer came with the house and is of mid-70's vintage I guess. Anyway, the plastic dail that indicated the different wash cycles (including Permanent Press), has long ago disintegrated. I tried using a old CD disk, with lines drawn to roughly show where the dial marks would be, but that too has crumbled to fragments. I'm seeking for a replacement. Can anyone point me to the right direction? Thanks!

BTW, the 40 year old vintage washer still washing a load in this photo.

I can see it's a one-speed washer.

I think there is a member here with a near mint of this machine. Gordon, perhaps.

if an actual dial can't be found.....

I know someone did an overlay, either on the panel itself, or in using that disc, print out a label, and affix it to the unit....

worst case, find a donor machine, and flip the whole console over....
