TOL Model?

Appears to be a 712 but I can't decipher from the agitator shot whether it has an orbital or pitman transmission.

Itís a model above my A612, which of course is a pitman, so I imagine that the washer is a pitman, since it also have the power fin agitator

Glennís pictures show more clearly that it is indeed a pitman transmission machine. I could be wrong but it seems like someone said that the sliding water level switches were only on orbital machines. Maybe this one is a combination of two machines or maybe a mixture of parts from the factory.

I have an LA512 (serial April 1984) with a variable-slider water level and pitman transmission.

Is it just me or does the washer lid look a different color compared to the top? Also the tub looks like the dark tub that was used in the small tubs. Maybe it's just really poor lighting on all.

Sliding infinite water level switch debut in 1980, more than 9 years before the orbital transmission was implement in July/August of 1989.

No worries, I can't remember what I ate 5 minutes after finishing a meal these days.
