Thumbnail Image of Download Beautiful 1962 Kelvinator Washer Brochures
Here are some wonderful brochures highlighting the 1962 line of Kelvinator Automatic Washers. Full images, control panel view for top of the line model and specifications for each model include. Models highlighted: W-942DD, W-982DD, W-742D, W-782D, W-502, W-522, W-552, W-572 and W-302.

Kelvinator has used the name "Golden Touch" to describe its remarkable and exclusive agitator action which combines vigorous water turbulence with gentle handling of clothes to produce the cleanest washing available to the modern housewife. The Kelvinator agitator moves with an eccentric motion in one direction only, as 180 scientifically placed holes in the agitator create thousands of jets of sudsy water per minute. This combination of one-direction agitator motion and water-jet turbulence produces the tremendous agitator action we call the "Golden Touch."
