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."
