Somehow or other I get the feeling this is a WCI special. I could be wrong! Any other input.

Anyone know what company made this washer & dryer?
Looks like Montgomery Wards

"Continuous Cleaning Lint Filter" - not to be confused with an oven from this era, you still had to clean it manually. (ha! just like the ovens!)

WCI made - Franklin design. I've seen this washer in Avocado at a junkyard about an hour from here... I remember a couple of these, mostly lower end models from when I was a kid. Virtually the same washer came in lots of brands, Gibson, Kelvinator, Coronado, etc.

Did they also make washers for the WT Grant chain- as Bradford?

hey Jerry

Well, they sure look identical to the Bradfords. I always did wonder who made those and the Wizards as well. Sheesh, I haven't seen many of those ever and certainly not nowdays. They were all Franklin WCI products I'm assuming.
