This washer is crappy   >:( Far as i can tell it has to be crappyer than a new style ge top loader. It does not agitate at all. Just wobbles and turns slow or dumps water. I ain't got to spin yet. Too many distractions, yard work, granny , and cooking, I cain't get around to sitting there watching a P.O.S. for 40 minutes. Any body know how to force spin on this P.O.S.  :rofl:

But it's a VERY nice looking POS, JW.

This washer is also known as...

A Collapso Washer.

When our "doughboys" were forced to use the Chauchat machine gun during WW1---they tossed 'em into a ditch---straightaway.

It simply did not work.

Yall I have found the problem corrected it and now have an interesting washer. I am upgrading this P.O.S. to P.D.N. OK I figured the wobble was not being effective to the point of discouraging the machine. I saw several CI errors. As you may know a CI error means the machine has met the current limit which means it is over amping because of that stupid wobble jamming the agitator against the tub and locking up. I said to myself this wobble thang don't really do sh!t and when it goes crazy it will allow clothes to get under that fancy agitator base. SOO.... I took the thing back apart and removed the nutation drive. Put it back together to see what it will do. See instead of agitation this washer uses a tiny amount of water and continuously circulates it. The nutation part is just a bunch of BS that makes this washer fail miserably. I ran it on short cycle and watched it throughout with the front panel off. The agitator does wobble even with the gizmo removed. It does better now than it did with it in. Keep in mind I ain't washed any clothes in it yet. But I got that mutha to spin like nobodys business. Here is what it does. It fills up slowly spins, wobbles, and continuously pours water over the tub from several positions. It dumps it floods the detergent dispenser and it sprays. Once I got the nutation gizmo out of it it came to life.
