GE filter-flo

I'd put a classic white 2-speed GE filter-flo matching set. I'd use normal speed 99% of the time.

Fridgidaire Control Tower set would look nice.

GMH Frigidaire washer cause they are just the best (despite mine being in bits at this current moment) and a Simpson Minimax 150, can’t go wrong with Simpson!

What everyone was probably buying at the time--a Sears Lady Kenmore set like maybe today's Pic of the Day...

Copper, Gold or Avocado Green...

Honestly, with me, I would put something a bit unusual

Potentially a semi automatic of some type, a Bock Speedry extractor, and then potentially either a Westinghouse front loading dryer or something like that is available, potentially a laundromat dryer

On a related note, does anybody know how long it takes for laundry to dry in a Westinghouse dryer? Specifically the American 240 V versions as my Australian built. Westinghouse dryer only has a maximum amperage of 10 A and takes about an hour and 30 minutes to dry a 4 1/2 kilogram 10lbs load

A Sears Lady Kenmore Set in Avocado like today’s POD, and a GM Frigidaire Set with a washer that has an Up & Down Agitator. The Frigidaire Set would be a Roller-Matic or a 1970-79 1-18.

I'd choose a 1970's GM Frigidaire 1-18 washer, and matching wide-mouth dryer.
