This video was just uploaded to YouTube, from an archive youtube channel.

The washer and dryer are the top of the line models, with the wood panels on the front.

Really cool video. Great quality too.

Wow, that's great! The washer/dryer pair appear to be 1970 models.

Thanks for pointing that out... and far less corny than earlier promotions.

It ain't fitting for a lady to bend over like that when wearing short skirts. *LOL*

Looks like one of those 3-speed washers with the agitation and spin speed selectors. When did Whirlpool first make those?

Neat self clean controls. We had a new then condo that had the same appliance except the stove which was  'one' oven self clean and the clean controls were built into the clock/thermo.

She did a lot in one day. Laundry, cooked a roast, a chicken, compacted garbage, cleaned the oven, a huge load of dishes. I’d be exhausted. I wish it was in color. Wondering if the appliances are avocado or harvest gold.

Fun video.  I watched all 4 parts.  The last of half of part 4 is really corny with the couple in their "Star Trek" uniforms in their Jetson's kitchen!

Interesting film. Looks like it was probably an Eastmancolor print; too bad it wasn't a Technicolor dye tranfer print instead, which wouldn't have faded out to almost a BW image.

I had a double oven Connoisseur electric like that, but in lovely Harvest Gold from 1973 and matching Whirlpool "No Frost" fridge.
