I must be getting old . I remember changing the bellows on those Frigidiare Unimatic washers . When they got torn socks etc would get sucked right in . I still have the tools . The large bellows tool is a great jar opener and the small bellows tool makes a good nutcracker. Just shows you how far a giant manufacturer can fall. G.M . made some pretty innovative stuff .
