Was browsing Facebook ads and seen this lovely Filter Flo for sale in Ohio. Looks to be in fairly decent shape, with filter pan and softener dispenser.

I am planning on buying it

Yes I saw this earlier today, and I'm going to try to get it this weekend. I know it's first come first serve, but I really hope nobody swipes this from me.

Sure thing! Fortunately, it appears it can be shipped to me. I just don't have a facebook account so I have to buy this through a relative. Hopefully I'll have it by the end of the month!

I have this same exact machine and it is a great little washer.  I use my every week.

"little" is not the way to sum up the water usage of this.

A GE FF/Hotpoint RF/ or JCPenny RF can use upwards of 50 gallons of water on a typical load. Its'w one the most wasteful washer designs.

Compare that to 10-12 gallons for a large capacity front load washer.

But they are fun to watch. Especially the Filter flo models with the filter pan in place.

well what do you want...

we have people complaining that this is a water hog.....that cleans and rinses very well...

and we have people complaining of not enough water used in todays machines....and running loads through the cycle several times to get them clean....

you can't have it both ways....

I know people who bought HE machines, and are going back to these types of machines....

and that 35 year old GE will still outlast most anything you find on the market today....

Well, you see, I don't care. It does a fantastic job cleaning and rinsing, so it can have as much water as it wants.

I only mention this not to knock a particular brand or line of product. It's just a fact that these do use a lot of water because of the way the outside tub is situated with relation to the inner tub. Some people may not be aware of that.

Because they use a lot of water they will require more detergents and will run up a water bill, electric bill, water softening bills and equipment usage.

Also, to note, some people have this image that cleanliness equals using A LOT of water, making certain noises, sudsy soap and splashing. Those are preconceptions and don't necessarily mean something is getting clean because you have those elements.

But what ever your thing is. It's no problem.

I like the outer design of GE FFs from the 60s to the mid 80s, and of course the recirculating water is fun. GE was my fav. brand for many years. In fact, it was my first washer many years ago. An avocado 1969 with sudsaver, flourescent panel light, and separate wash/spin speed switches.

Yes I know what you mean. I didn't mean that in a condescending way so sorry if that's how I came off. I do agree that it does use a bit more water than other machines of similar capacity, but water is incredibly cheap where I live so that is no concern to me.

Bad news

Someone bought it out from under me!! Man I am so disappointed! I knew a nice machine like this for such a low price was definitely going to sell fast but darn it's so frustrating when you miss out on your dream machine like this.

All part of the experience I suppose...
