Honestly Iíd say the price is worth it since it comes with a matching dryer. The person selling it said it was only used a couple of times. It also has a later model straight vane agitator. If anyone wants these, get them, and if theyíre left over, then I think Iíll buy them

Washer was built in January 1979 and dryer in November 1978. Dryer is the super capacity and a gas one at that! Iíve really wanted one of these for a long time but my experiences with multiple shippers lately has been terrible due to their unreliability and lack of communication.

That was my washer and dryer pair I bought April 1978, probably produced late 1977 or very early 1978. Mine had a different sequence on the perm press cycle--it did a partial spin drain, fill, and 8 minute agitation like WP did with their PP cycle. This particular model does a continuous cold spray once the pressure switch is reset. I had a coworker get this exact set in 1979 with my suggestion.

At $375 for set someone really should get those machines.

Yeah, if you really want to waste a lot of water, that is the washer to get. The only way I use a top loader now is if I can drain it into another machine to get two uses out of the wash water then drain the rinse water out into the yard. I saved a young dogwood tree during a hot drought one summer doing that.  I put a sump pump in the bottom of a 32 gallon container and ran the water out to the tree.

Will, have you had any luck acquiring this set?

I donít know

The thing is that I had a deal with my mom. If she could get a puppy, I could get another washer and dryer. I have to wait until the end of June to get it. Honestly, Iím not gonna be too sad about losing it, but still, itís in pristine condition. So if anyone wants it, Iíd say come now!

Is that a mini basket setting on the washer? A very useful feature if it is.

Yes this is a mini basket washer. With these machines in the great condition that they are I would think the mini basket and filter pan are still there unless someone threw them out not knowing what they were as Iíve seen happen often. While I havenít intentionally looked for one I havenít seen a straight vane mini basket pop up for sale in 5 or 6 years.

Iíd really like to get this set. Iíve messaged the seller multiple times with no response although the message shows to have been seen. I even sent my phone number to no avail. Is there anyone near these who would be willing to pick these up and hold them for my shipper to get them. My shipper tells me heíll be in Michigan in the next 2 weeks. Iím willing to pay anyone for their trouble. If interested, my email is in my profile. Thanks.

Iíll try

He has been responding to me, Iíll see if I can get his attention for now, since he has been responding to me. If he says no, I canít guarantee it, but Iíd see if I could possibly hold them for you.

That would be very generous of you. Since this was an estate deal supposedly I was hoping that the mini basket and filter pan werenít tossed out yet.

Answer is no

Iím not allowed to hold the washer and dryer for you, sadly, but check to see if they are still available, the person who sold the Norge washer to me still has an ad up on FB marketplace.
