Hello Dominic, I have also been wondering the same thing for a long time. I have never seen a GM Frigidaire in person.

GM of Venezuela never sold the 1-18 here, the last washing machines that arrived here were the towers from 1957 and they were very few.

By the way, would anyone be interested in selling a 1-18 at a good price? Having one is one of the dreams that I would like to fulfill before I die.

I will try this once again. I lost all of the text the first time. Unlike the Three Ring agitators that used a dispenser that sat inside, the jet cone agitators used a hard plastic dispenser that sat on top. The first ones were a cylinder-shape about 4" X 4". Unfortunately, the cycles with the slowest spin did not spin fast enough to drive the softener up and out of the cup. The dispenser was redesigned into a flatter, saucer shape. Both had a blue plastic cap that protected the softener during agitation. Unfortunately, the hard plastic body of the dispenser did not deal well with the agitation and the screws that anchored the brackets to the agitator broke loose and no glue that I used held the screws for the metal brackets very long.
