We Love Steve aka the nearly departed. Occasionally he has time to arise from his life of luxury as a live-in pool boy for a rich benefactor in Westchester county and bless us with his presence.

The original WASHING MACHINE Picture Thread, Part I:
www.automaticwasher.org/c...
has over 6700 views and nearly 200 replies as of this date.

Several posts have been made with a similar title (by date started).

part II: www.automaticwasher.org/c...

part III: www.automaticwasher.org/c...

part IV: www.automaticwasher.org/c...

In the spirit that only Steve can give it:

"Thought I'd start a pic thread-- of the kind we are all interested in.

Let's try to include the name-brand of the washer and a brief description. Full-frontal preferred!

Please~ The image of your pussy-gato, dog, car, etc. are appreciated, but maybe not in this thread! :-)"

"oh girls, I am not at TOTAL tyrant, I was simply suggesting we keep one thread, light , focused and fabulous!

What fabulous shots!

Jeff, is that supermarket-brand watery softener I see? YAY! MY HERO!

LOVE all the machines, but CENTER-DIAL MAYTAGS....
THUD ...FAINT.. madam has the vapours!"

The Whirlpool panel profile looks similar but... this one appears to have grown ears.

Platinum is rare. I love that WP.

I found a mid 70s KM like #5 only it was white. It was at a Goodwill when they still sold appliances. It was in really good condition accept it wouldn't spin. It kept going in and coming back out.
The only problem: one of the wig-wag wires was mysteriously damaged. It think it was the yellow one.
Made a simple splice or replaced the wire and the machine worked perfect.

Yours looks great with the original label and a color coordinated bleach dispenser. love it.

I have a 24" Kenmore 110.81156100 that was known working when I got it in May 2010 but I have not ever run it.† It (hopefully) just needs some clean-up from 11 years of garage storage.

Glenn that Ď81 24Ē Kenmore belt drive is a rare machine. For some reason around here the 24Ē belt drives werenít popular. The 24Ē direct drives were very popular and used to be everywhere but they are gone now. I have a Kenmore 24Ē belt drive and itís been sitting since the early 2000ís and looks bad now. I got it from some folks who moved here from Michigan to work. I never checked it but Iím sure the tub had a hole in it because all of the incoming water hit the floor immediately from underneath.

I forget that I also have a 24Ē Whirlpool belt drive from the late sixties or early seventies and itís been sitting for over 20 years.

The belt drive Kenmore is a 1986 Kenmore 70 Series! However I have modified it slightly in the years Iíve owned it, with a waterfall style manual clean lint filter, and a double duty Super Surgilator. I do still have the original Dual-Action agitator too.

Since you mentioned incoming water hit the floor, the pump guard could have worked itís way loose or is cracked hence the leak. Someone who ended up getting the 1981 Whirlpool belt drive washer that Lorain Furniture gave away in a raffle 3 years ago had water gushing out from the pump area whenever they tried filling it with water and turns out the freezing Michigan winters caused the water to freeze and the ice popped the pump guard off from the drain port seal.

Henry thanks for showing off the Kenmore. All of your machines are nice. I believe there were 4 70 series models in 1986 and yours would have been the second from the top. The top of the line 70 series had 5 water levels and the 2 upper line 70 series models had porcelain tops and lids while the others had the dynaguard finish. The step up to the 80 series gave you infinite water levels.

Changing out the agitator is easy enough though I'm clutching the pearls at the idea of this Kenmore defiled with a Whirlpool surgilator. lol

How did you add a waterfall style manual clean lint filter?

Any pictures?
Did you remove the tub side filter or did this have a basket mounted filter?

Lint filter addition

drummerboy928's profile picture
This washer originally came with a self cleaning lint filter mounted to the bottom of the basket. When I removed the basket of the machine to patch rust, I notified the lint filter was not looking too good, so I removed it from the machine, and I still have it hanging up on the wall. Wanting some form of lint filter, and since Iíve always liked the waterfall style, I decided to convert it, I put a new tub cover in, which was needed anyway as the old one was missing the metal snubber plate, and when the original pump failed several years back, I had mistakenly ordered a three port pump. I swapped in the three port pump in place of the other two port pump that was already in the machine, and connected some clear hose I bought at Home Depot. Now the Manual Clean lint filter works as it should, and IMHO collects more lint than the self cleaning lint filter did.

As for the Whirlpool agitator, I still have the dual action agitator for this machine, as well as the proper fabric softener dispenser for it. That is the current agitator that is in the machine, I just didnít have a recent enough picture with both the Dual-action and the lint filter :-)

My Siemens washer and dryer in the laundryroom. And the LG Turbodrum in the bathroom that I use as an extra laundry basket. Once a year it gets used to wash electric blankets.

Not in the pictures the little dancing AEG Lavamat 220 that resides in the basement. Still not unpacked after almost 4 years I moved here. Yes, I know!

Louis I vaguely remember an h axis washer here over 20 years ago. It was not a combo. It had a plastic top that lifted up to access a stainless basket with a trap door for loading. I want to say it was branded Eco something but thatís been a long time ago and never saw another.

Thanks! Iíve been into collecting these machines my whole life. Since discovering this site it has gotten out of control. Lol! I do have a large space but there are so many machines in there now itís not easy to maneuver in there anymore. I do have plans to get it cleaned up though.

I made a 6 hour round trip for the avocado 806 and missed them having the matching dryer by a couple of years. They said the dryer had caught fire. They told me the machines belonged to the grandmother who purchased them new.

I've been there. ... a couple of times. I started when I was about 14.

Felt like a kid in a candy store. At one point (2002) I bought another house because the house I was living in was mostly filled. Not just washers and dryers but also dishwashers, a few refrigerators, and lost of canister vacuums. Plus retro furniture and decor.

You have washer gold there.

I actually had the TOL Kitchenaid washer that matched yours, also in almond. It was a self-advancing electro-mechanical timer and the panel had a row of small (60s GE stove styled) buttons. That was 2002. I think I paid $150 for it. It worked fine and it had a green agitator.

That LK I picked up for free, in white, when I was first starting out around 1984. It worked fine but it needed a new pulley for the transmission. The odd noise is the reason the person wanted to get a new washer. I'm fairly certain it had a sudsaver.

In fact, Iíve got several. Unfortunately, all of the machines shown above arenít mine. The Ď89 kenmore were in my grandmaís old house she moved out of in 2017, the Ď93 kenmore is my great auntís. The only ones that are mine are the Speed Queen and the Maytag. Unfortunately, I was forced to sell the rimflo to make room for the Maytag. The longer itís been, the more I regret selling it, but I didnít have much of a choice. I did rescue the rimflo from going to the scrapyard, though, and it went to someone who could use it. Like I said, I regret selling it, but there was no way around it. Here are the pics.

Reply 56 ... I almost had a '65 LK ... sort of.† More years ago than I can say we were driving through the home-neighborhood and I spied a white specimen disconnected in a garage.† I was *sure* it was headed to the dump and managed to convince dad to stop there to inquire if I can have it.† Turned out the machine had a spin problem that they had fixed, just hadn't moved the machine back into the laundry room.

Those rim flows were great washers. Your model in particular was a workhorse, still found in use in apartments and condos. Yours might have been a single speed, which extended the life of the clutch. Simple, durable, and great wash results. I miss using one as much as you miss yours, if not more.

I always wanted that pink one too, but instead on Christmas and Birthdays, I got a tonka truck because that is what boys play with. Thanks to our Webmasters posting, I scored a Sears Lady Kenmore Rite Hite washer from 1962 Sears Wishbook. Only thing is the 3 vane agitator goes up and down instead of back and forth. Sorry, no pictures because camera wont send pictures, but Roberts posting must be in the archives.

I too would have loved having those toy washers.  The closest I came is receiving a 18" square wooden box on wheels my neighbor made and painted gray.  It was about 30" tall and had a piece of cove molding on the back edge giving the top a control panel look.  The top was also hinged to the back.  

To me it was washer.  I even painted on three colored buttons on the "panel" for hot-warm-cold.  Also took a piece of black rubber tubing that was about 3' long and stuck it in the back to give it a drain hose.

Do we think it's:

Poppy originally? ( doubt it)

painted poppy? ...and they seem to do a good job.

or is it shaded Coffee (or whatever MT called it 'Aztec blah-bid-de-blah') and the picture processing has distorted the color? The more I look....

I remember that style of Asko. I worked for an appliance company that was selling them at the time and had never heard of the brand before then. The company relocated around 2008 and I havenít seen any Asko machines since the early 2000ís.

So this dryer is a condenser dryer?

 

How does that work?

Do you have to empty water?

Yes itís a condenser heatpump dryer.
It gives you the option to empty the tray with the water or let it drain somewhere with a hose (like your washer).
In my case I let it drain.

Extremely efficient . Only 1000W compared to the 5000+ W for a regular dryer.
No need to deal with vents and all the fire hazard , no need for 220v (itís running on standard 110v 15Amps outlet).
Itís taking slightly longer when I dry a full load of heavy cotton towels (around 80-90 mins) but this is nothing crazy compared to my whirlpool which took an hour.
Also really cheap to run (electricity in NYC is expensive).

WOW ! you did really good there.

bradfordwhite's profile picture

That is awesome!  I just learned of these a couple months ago and what a great idea. 

 

It's an understatement to say that they are energy savers.  With a typical vented dryer that takes it's intake air from an interior space, and they all do, there is a tremendous waste of energy in two ways.   

 

First is the obvious high output 5000 watt (or more) electric element, or a gas heater element that's running for up to an hour per load and all that heat is vented outside, so you don't see any benefit indoors.

 

Second is the fact that the dryer uses INDOOR air to vent out all the exhaust INCLUDING all the heat the dryer is making.  So the heat your furnace makes or the cool air your air conditioner makes in the summer gets wasted by being quickly sucked out of your house.  

 

Having the self empty option with that tiny mini drain hose makes using this dryer just about as hassle free as any other dryer. 

 

As for the lint clean out, is it true there are actually two filters?  One inside the drum and one underneath?

 

Also wonder how it sounds compared to a typical vented dryer?  This doesn't have a huge fan in it like the vented dryer but it does have a refrigeration unit in the bottom.  Does the dryer make more noise or just a different noise?

 

Another great thing about these condenser dryers is if one had their own solar electric system it would be relatively easy to power this 110 volt item. 

 

 

Either way, one is saving A LOT of energy by using a condenser dryer.

Actually there are 3+1 filters.
2 at the door (one sliding one sitting) 1 plinth folder and one filter for the compressor cooling system (which is not a filter by itself just the condenser)

I clean the 2 door filters after each use.
The plinth filter almost every 2 weeks ( I get a warning that it needs cleaning) and the compressor condenser once a year.
People thinking itís too much maintenance but thats not true. The plinth filter I clean it with my dyson vacuum (I use the regular brush) and the compressor with the vacuum and some compressed air.

The most important is that the dryer doesnít get hot at all and itís not releasing heat or lint in the room.

This is totally cool.  Having easy to access filters and even a monitor to tell one when to clean them is perfect.

 

Messy lint build up is another problem with the vented dryers.  How often do we hear in the news about a house fire caused by a build up of lint from a vented dryer.   Either the lint is in the bottom of the dryer, built up in an attic or crawl space, or it's in the ducting, or it's even the plastic ducting itself that some people use.  It's a terrible safety risk.

 

There are entire businesses of people who do nothing else but clean out vent pipes for dryers and exhaust ducting.

 

A condenser dryer eliminates all that.   

 

If it were me, I'd just have a Wallyflex in the laundry area. 

Connects into ones central vacuum system.  Makes quick work of lint.

Unfortunately Miele is the only one running on 110 :(
If you check the specs all of them are running on 220

I know another couple in NYC they got the Miele set due to the 110v

I'll have to research that. Like I said... just a couple of months for me.

I wonder why they would have them at 220. I mean the components of the machine must be a motor for the drum, a small compressor, and a small heater. I don't see why that couldn't run on 110.

You said yours in 1000 watts which sounds about right. It wouldn't take a very big heater to heat up a dryer drum that's not venting out any of the heat.

Next door neighbors bought a matching Whirlpool front load stack set and both run on 110. Washer has a heater and only cold water hookup, dryer takes 2 hours to dry towels and fills a big container with water to be emptied. Cost was way too much. I'll keep my 1984 Maytags.

Oh Wow, $50 for the set. What a deal.

A washer belt isn't too big a deal on this. ...if you know the correct bolts and spacer to remove. lol

Am I correct in seeing this has the Super Surgilator which means this was super capacity?

Is the bleach gravity or timed?

Does it have a wash basket ring filter or the trad. tub filter?

Super Surgilator has the three lower fins extending a bit past the skirt.† It was on both standard and 18lb models.

that door provides the seamless, inegral look some consumers seek in their appliances. Athough there are probably other brands that offer(ed) models with this aesthetic design, it was quiite prevalent with Asko washers and some Miele models.

The machine in the middle with the drop down door is an AEG.

Machines with an extra door are out of fashion, but in the past there were plenty of them.

1. AEG washer/dryer combo (made by Lepper)

2. A Philips washing built-in washing machine in the kitchen of a vacation home.
