Filter Flo washers are my all time favorite washing machines. As a child having Autism, I was always fascinated with the 6 holes right at the top of the tub, that the plastic rim fits into.

I no longer have a Filter Flo washer, but I am wondering if I could get some closeup photos of these holes from you guys that still own a Filter Flo? I have attached a couple of photos of the holes that I am talking about, and have pointed them out with an arrow and a blue circle.

Thanks so much, and long live the Filter Flo!

Well, then, what is the significance of those holes up there? What do they do?

Well, I always believed that these holes held this plastic ring into place, but maybe they served a purpose other than this? Anybody have any closeup shots of these holes on your Filter Flo?

Would love to see them!

Here is a 1990 model WWA5800GBLWH project in the works. It is now mechanically sound but needs some cosmetic work. I have a much nicer one but this one still had the top up so it made for easy picture taking. This was a garbage find that looked like it had sat in a dirty garage unused for quite some time. It had with it all of the hoses, the filter pan, the mini basket, and a Downey ball. Itís been a while since Iíve tinkered with it but I believe all I did was seal holes in the outer tub. Itís a standard capacity single speed model that doesnít wash a lot at one time but nothing is coming out dirty.

Repairguy, nice! Any way you can get some photos of the holes on your other machine?

The other machine is buried in a sea of many machines at the moment.
