Hello folks:

After 32+ years, this machine has finally going to be replaced (appears to have a rotted tub and leaks water). So, I will be likely looking to part it out.

I have an NOS #303650 Whirlpool water inlet valve for it. All controls and the timer still work fine. The pump is OK as well. Racks are in OK shape, will need some refinishing and I have other racks that fit it that I salvaged from other machines.

If there's any interest in some parts, drop me a line at and we'll try to work something out.

Bump, it's a 1987

Running the numbers, it turns out this is a September 1987 made unit, assembled at Whirlpool's Findlay, OH facility (which I understand it still in business).

If anyone is in need of parts, drop me a line at before it eventually winds up at the curb.....

Bump. Machine is gone, but I salvaged some parts from it:

Door switch
Float switch
Push button assembly
Heater element (have two, the original and an NOS one I installed around 2013).

Any interest, please email

Well Joe, it's been 4 months.... I think it might be safe to say.... if you haven't had any takers yet.... the odds are you may not.


Just sayin'.....

True, But....

I just sold a dairy door on Ebay that I salvaged a few years back. Sometimes, it just takes the right buyer that has the need for it. Otherwise, once they are gone, they are gone, because we all know that WLP isn't making them anymore....
