Thumbnail Image of Download The Owners Manual To The Very First Automatic Washer
How To Do Your Week's Wash Automatically

Here is true automatic washer history. This owners manual is what was packed with every Bendix Home Laundry in 1937, they year Bendix introduced the automatic washer to the world!

"Gone are the days when everything had to be washed, rinsed, wrung and ironed by hand. Gone is the back-breaking toil that made clean towels and sheets a luxury-that made an abundance of daily changes of body linen an extravagance almost unheard of. The housewife of today can be lavish with cleanliness. She can give her family plenty of fresh white linens-plenty of bright, clean clothes; for modern appliances have remade washday. Swift, scientific methods have replaced the long hours of drudgery that were once associated with the washing and ironing of clothes."

Congratulations on the addition of the new Westinghouse Electric
Range to your kitchen. You will find it one of the most responsive
and efficient electric servants you have ever owned ... You will
love the speed, accuracy and ease of use.

You'll find that many cooking operations that once took a lot of
time can now be done automatically. No longer will you have to
stand at the range and stir foods while they cook ... or lift lids
to see whether water has boiled away. No longer will you have to
guess when food is done. The accurate, automatic controls of
your Westinghouse Electric Range will give you the same fine
results, day in and day out, with a minimum of effort on your part.
Probably you have a fine reputation for your skill in baking. The
Miracle-Sealed Oven of your Westinghouse Range will delight
you ... it will give you perfect results every time ... without worry
on your part.

Perhaps, too, you have several pet recipes for foods cooked on
the Range surface . . . foods done exactly to the degree of doneness
that you prefer. Because your Westinghouse Range surface
units will deliver any degree of heat you select, you can cook
these dishes to perfection every time.

To get the results your Westinghouse is capable of giving, it is
important that you read this book carefully. In it you will find
detailed instructions on the care and use of your range. If you
follow these instructions carefully, your range will' give you many
years of trouble free service and you and your range will become
wonderful cooking partners.

Here is the complete owners manual to Sears Kenmore's second generation of automatic washers which were produced by Whirlpool. The manual covers both models available from 1950 through 1952, the "Deluxe" model and the "Standard" model.

The Deluxe model was Kenmore's first automatic washer with a suspension system which means no bolting down was necessary and had a suds-saver system. The Standard model was similar to Kenmore's original 1947 bolt-down style washer, but with the suds-saver system removed and bolting down was required.
