Still a single speed machine.  Has anyone seen that timer dial with the setting for the wash time at the hub? It sort of reminds me of the way the dry time was set on the central hub of the single dial of the first WP combos.

We have a pink set of these in the museum with the water cooled condensing dryer, I have never tried out the Sounder-Rinse feature.

It "actually rinses newness into the clothes." The rhetoric is so over the top, it leaves you breathless. All the grand hype for this secret
"rinse chemical" aka, the dawn of fabric softener, but that reservoir and the button to choose its use is so cool. I love it.

Yeah, wonder what the miracle of science was...could be fatty acid (i.e. softener), starch, or bentonite...all have some of the characteristic qualities.

Yeah, Jamie, the ad copy is a stunner.

Tom, are you remembering the "See it Wash" Wonderdial. It won't link; I tried, but you know how to find it on the Aworg homepage. The memory came to me in one of those Eureka moments. Just reviewed it--really fun. Thanks.
