Hello,
My name is Tommy.  This is only the second forum that I have joined.  I am currently joined with Automatic Washer.org since Sept, 2017.  I currently collect and do limited restoration to vintage automatic washers.  I am a fan of vintage Kenmore, Whirlpool, Maytag, and especially Frigidaire washers from the late 50's to 1965.  My collection currently includes several Speed Queen wringer washers, 1 Kenmore Limited Edition, 1 Maytag A282.  Soon to pick up 2 Frigidaire washers next week.  One is a 1963 WIA-63 then other is a 1968 WAN.  Both do not have the high spin RPM's that I would like, but since vintage Frigidaire's are rare I snapped these up when I had the chance.

BTW, does anyone know why Frigidaire lowered there high spin RPM's?  I have unsuccessful in finding any information on the engineering thinking behind decision.  Any help??
Thanks for listening,
Tommy

I restore 30's 40's and 50's gas ranges and I am the only one in Northern CA. between San Francisco and Willits CA. There only 5 of us in N CA. and have talked to 2 of them. Washers would be harder as not as many around,I admire that.
