If Mrs. Hunk, I mean Howard, needed a machine to handle heavy mud, she should have purchased a Westinghouse tumbler which was much better at disposing of heavier than water soil than the solid tub Easy-made WH with soil ejector. Of course, she would have had to use a low or controlled suds detergent instead of Tide, but they could clean well, too.

What year(s) did they have Easy make top loaders for them before they came up with their own? I did see one of these many years ago and wondered...

One of my classmates had this washer when we were in early elementary school. Her mom would occasionally wash a load of clothes and not take it out. The clothes would actually dry in the washtub over a few days. Needless to say, the machine had an overwhelming sour stench to it.

When this happened, I was allowed to run the load through another wash cycle, so you can bet your bottom dollar that was the first thing I checked whenever I visited, LOL.

They also had one of those little round bolt-down Westinghouse front-loaders often found in laundromats in the 1960s. It had been moved to a corner of the basement and wasn’t hooked up.
