I found this on Facebook market place.
I think itís close to 20 years old. Is this a good set? Did I read somewhere on here the RPMS on the washer is higher since itís a smaller tub?
Capacity isnít an issue- I would use it for my window business as most loads are small.
My other thought is to buy a combo compact washer/dryer. Again most loads are washed and air dried.
I have a 240v available.

The few I've picked up over the years have been decent.

This machine would be around 20 years old. The same machine was in production from 1987 through 2017.

These were quite good machines overall they had a few week spots but weíre easy to fix both the washer and dryer are very rugged and use most of the same parts from the full sized whirlpool washers and dryerís

This has the same spin speed as a regular direct drive top load washer you could figure about 640 to 50 RPMs so the water extraction is actually a little poor because of the smaller diameter of the tub than the full sized whirlpool top load washer of the time.
