Thumbnail Image of Download 1959 Easy Automatic Washer Service Manual
Here is the service manual introducing the very first Velva-Power Easy Washers. The 1959 Easy Automatic Washer series Golden Regent and Riviera. Models ADK and ABK.

Sections include full specifications, Installation, Operating Instructions, Cycle of Operation Charts, Tools, Dismantling, Reassembly, Replacement of Parts, Adjustment, Troubleshooting Charts and Wiring Diagrams/Schematics.

The 1959 Automatic Washers Models ADK and ABK are equipped with a completely new, revolutionized, sealed transmission. This new "Velva Powered" transmission (equipped with a direct drive motor) has been thoroughly field tested commercially and in homes. It requires no belts, pulleys, solenoids, or other devices, such as "cut off" switches.

The limited out-put torque clutch in the transmission accomplishes two definite purposes. It permits gradual acceleration of the wash tub without overloading the motor and controls the spin speed, preventing the tub from reaching high r.p.m. when subjected to extremely unbalanced loads, eliminating the need for any cut-off device. An internal brake applied automatically at the end of the cycle allows the spin tub to come to a smooth gliding stop.

Automatic shifting from agitation to spin is accomplished by means of a two-speed, heavy duty, reversible, :Y3 H.P., 115 V., 60 cycle motor. An overload protector built into the motor prevents motor "burn-out."

A completely new type of discharge pump directly driven by the motor further eliminates pulleys and belts.

Thumbnail Image of Download The New Naturals
Beautiful sales literature brochure highlighting the new colors in the GE appliance line.

In the 1950s, General Electric was first with Mix-and-Match, an innovative color concept that allowed homemakers to combine pastel appliance shades for an exciting, modern look. In the 1960s, GE was first to bring you Harvest and Avocado, the trend-setting decorator colors that brought kitchens alive with rich new tones. And now, GE is first again with The New Naturals, the widest range of colors ever offered by General Electric.

Now you can get the natural look with the all-new appliance color Almond, a subtle shade that blends beautifully with almost any other color. Or choose one of the five other New Naturals, all in a high-gloss finish and all designed for maximum decorating versatility: Coffee, Fresh Avocado, Harvest Wheat, Onyx, and Snow.
