I acquired this set between Christmas and New Years and just had a little time to tinker with the washer today. I replaced the agitator coupling as you could turn the agitator back and forth with your hand due to the rubber separating from the coupling. Cleaned it up a little and ran a few loads. Works great! It has a pinhole in the drain hose but other than that no leaks. I believe the pan and mini basket were probably with the machine, but I believe they were thrown away because the people that bought the house they were in did not know what they were. Thought I had a picture with the matching gas extra large capacity dryer but I guess not.

Washer model: WWA8354VLWH
Serial: HA125369G

Looks great! I always thought the spotscrubber features were more TOL but this is the first time
Iíve seen a MOL model with this option. Looks like a fun and versatile machine!

Cool A Spot-Scrubber

Hi Melvin and Jon, Yes I have never seen a MOL SS before, these were fun washers.

 

Melvin if you need the mini-basket for this washer I probably have an extra I could send, The SS MB is a little different as it does not have holes in the bottom of the MB, but I guess you could use a regular one and seal the holes in the Bottom?

I forgot I had a Spotscrubber, this one looks a little closer to TOL.

GE Extra Capacity Gas Dryer

combo52's profile picture

Hi Melvin, at first you got me excited thinking you had one of the 30" wide 8 CF dryers [ some of these even had a 30,000 BTU burner ] but alas this is just the 27" extra deep dryer.

 

I did not care for these extra deep GE dryers, because of having the heater box underneath they had a rear drum seal and a very sensitive safety thermostat so the heat cycled a lot unless you had a short and perfect vent run so you ended up with a slow dryer.

Kenny, thatís a nice spot scrubber you have there. Thatís the style I remember them being.

John, sorry to disappoint. I see the electric version of the dryer you speak of from time to time but I donít think Iíve seen a gas one. Iíll keep my eyes peeled as now I want one. Were the 30Ē electric ones any good? Iíve worked on a few of those quite a few years ago now. Can you tell if one of these dryers is gas just by looking at the front of them? Was there an access panel?
