No longer will you need to put aside one day each week, to tire yourself out doing a whopping big wash.

The Laundromat is that revolutionary new Westinghouse contribution to better living. It reduces clothes washing to three simple steps-"put 'em in-set the dials-take 'em out" .

Thumbnail Image of Download Servicing Solid State Controls on the Lady Kenmore Washer
Here is an important manual for anyone who has vintage electronic control Kenmore or Whirlpool belt-drive washers. The manual specifically covers the 1980 Lady Kenmore, but I suspect many of the theories and processes extended out to other electronic control Whirlpool and Kenmore washers around this period.

Pictures and explanations go along with each section. Sections include Operating the Machine, Cycle charts, explanations of how each button effects the cycle, how the system and relays work, diagnosing trouble and servicing. Also tips on how to run the hidden test cycles and tips such as: The machine suds saver saves only 18 gallons of suds or rinse water unless converted. Because this machine is equipped with a suds level pressure switch, only 18 gallons of water will be saved, both suds and rinse. If the customer wants all of the water saved, the suds level switch must be bypassed . We will cover that in later frames.
