The POD reminded me that my 56 Whirlpool Imperial set is finally back together again after a lengthy separation.  The dryer had been in deep storage for years due to a timer issue and as part of last year's "trial by dryer", I found a couple of electrical issues.   But all has been resolved and I am finally able to use it again!

The washer, on the other hand, has been in regular service since I got (John and Jeff did the rebuild, hence why it's still working...)

Bonus that both appliances have ozone lamps!

Paul would you mind re-posting these pictures again, I just put in a fix to see if I can conquer the picture rotation issue and I'd like to see what happens. Thank you.

Paul that's the set I remember my Mom having when I was a little kid. I remember the lit up latch on the front.

Paul, does that have the Surgulator or straight vane agitator? I like the light in the tub. Very nice looking set.

A Surgilator agitator---

IS a straight-vane agitator.

Really pretty machines.
