1951 Kenmore Washer Owners Manual


Published by Kenmore in 1951-- 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.
