Afternoon Bill,

interesting that you mention the Electrolux washer, W20 was Electrolux's first entry into the washing machine market in 1951 and was a twin tub style machine, it was unique in the fact that it had a revolutionary washing method by means of a "Floating water wing" the machine was such a success that there was a club created called "the friends of the W20"

I have never seen one, but about 18mths ago one came up in Holland was I was going to try and get exported to the UK, unfortunately it didn't happen. Not sure if they made it on to the US market.
