So, trying to get a vintage laundry center set up once again. Got this all put together today. After losing my beloved collection in 2015 in a wildfire, am trying to rebuild. Not the greatest collection, but thankfully have an extra over-sized two-car garage (in addtion to attached over-sized two-car garage with room for more machines). Plan to get it insulated and sheetrocked in the distant future. Thankfully live in NorCal with mild climate so no urgent need to get it finished yet. Just wanted to share a very rough and humble rebuild...

Looking good, Todd!  I see the new Montgomery Ward set is very much at home.

Nice Start

Looks to me like you are on the right path for a nice collection. I love your MW washer, I'm so jealous. I had a 20lb Norge that I would have put up against any washer. It washed with a vengeance. Dirt could not hide. My mother, who was a Kenmore fan, Used mine, and swore it was the best cleaning washer, she had ever used. Will be interested in seeing what else you add to your collection.

Hey Todd, that Whirlpool set...

Are they an Imperial 70 set? My mom had a white 1979 Whirlpool Imperial70 Gas dryer for 22 years that looked just like the one you have in your garage. I agree with David, you are on a great path to rebuilding your awesome collection. PAT COFFEY

Yeah, but I lost a ‘66 Whirlpool set along with a ‘62 Maytag Highlander set (both in turquoise) and I do miss my Frigidaire 1-18s, the ‘71 Lady Kenmore, and the ‘65 Norge. The search continues as I’m bound and determined to find something close to those!

Looks like you're getting a nice collection going there Washerlover/Todd!

I see the GE filter-flo,the Whirlpool, the Maytags, and is that a Montgomery Ward next to the 806?

It'll take time, but you'll have your laundryroom full once again
