Thumbnail Image of Download Your Instruction Book for Fluffy-Clean Clothes with the Apex Wash-a-Matic
Full owners manual and operating instructions that was packed in the very first design of the Apex Automatic Washer. This is the 3000 series (1948-1951) Wash-a-Matic automatic washers, with the spiral-tub bouncing basket.

You are now one of the ultra-modern homemakers who may escape "washday drudgery"! With your beautiful new Apex WASH-A-MATIC, you can look forward each week to extra hours and saved energy for other activities, leisure, or recreation.

The revolutionary action of the WASH-A-MATIC will quickly, thoroughly, and gently wash, triple-rinse, damp-dry, and finally fluff your clothes ... leaving them clean and tangle-free, ready for easy removal from the washer. Your Apex will do all of these things for you 100% automatically! Or, you can shorten, lengthen, or by-pass any of its automatic cycles by merely a flick of the timer control dial-when certain kinds of fabrics, or their condition of soil, require more specialized laundering.

The Apex WASH-A-MATIC is completely your tireless servant. Its unique "gearless" mechanism will give you extremely long, trouble-free service. It is not even necessary to oil the machine, for it is permanently lubricated at the factory.

Be sure to familiarize yourself with the instructions, outlined in this booklet, for using your WASH-A-MATIC. Keep these instructions for ready reference. Following them will enable you to achieve, with the absolute minimum of effort, just the washing results you have always wanted to attain.
