I found this poor waif on the side of the road, next to a dumpster. Just couldn't leave it there destined for an uncertain future. Looks to be a mid 70's Hotpoint, in Almond.

It is equipped with the dual agitator. The top agitator is cracked at the bottom, might be a chore to find one. Some lime buildup, not bad.

Clean as a new one. Wonder why someone abandoned it. Probably taken in by the shiny chrome and glitter of a new LG, or Samsung, when this is 10 times the washer! Oh well, their loss!

It doesn't look like it's in bad shape for being 40+ y.o.  Doesn't appear there's oil leak but maybe a slight pump leak at some point.  It still has the back.

But how in the world .......agitator cracked?  Wonder if someone put something they shouldn't have in there.   Or kids standing in it.

I've never seen that kind of damage before.

Nice washer.  Should handle almost all laundry needs of the average family.  Good save!
