Has anyone ever seen this automatic washer or had any experience with it? It seems like a saner approach than the bouncing basket. Thank you.

That thing just screams cheap, canít imagine one lasted long enough for anyone to have any real experience with it, did Consumer Reports ever test it?

Wasn't this the design that Wards used for their TLs in the late 50s? Fiberglass tub and separate aluminum agitator? They were ride-or-die Westinghouse, but not everyone wanted a FL.

I guess this was the first major appliance company for what was to become WCI. Several years before they bought Gibson, Kelvinator, Hamilton, Westinghouse, and Frigidaire.
