This is the washing machine that awakened my love for washing machines when I was 5 years old. My favorite Aunt had a matched set of Westinghouse slant fronts just like this ad. I still think they have a beauty in their simplicity.

I know many think they didnít extract well enough due to the somewhat slow spin speed. But I know my Aunt loved hers. And she had 3 kids and washed several times a week for 10 years with this machine, never had a repair, sold them with the house and the new owners used them for years too.

If I ever had a vintage set, these would be it.

However my experience was the early 70's. Much newer model at that point. Any was the neighbors machines. Loved them.

I, too, had an aunt who had these machines. When I was a little kid, my family lived in an apartment complex, and occasionally, my aunt would invite my mom over to do laundry; we made a day out of it.

BTW, can anyone explain the difference between an L-6 and an LB-6?
