Also included is the complete owners manual and operating instruction to this machine.

Thumbnail Image of Download How to Repair Appliances
Here is a wonderful book full of pictures and information of vintage washing machines and other vintage 1950's major and small appliances.

This is the most complete book on appliance repair ever prepared for the home handyman. Automatic Washers, Dryers, Refrigerators, Vacuum Cleaners, Fans, Mixers, Toasters as well as special chapters are devoted to the proper use and repair of freezers, air conditioners, rotary ironers, waffle irons, grills and heating units.

Before plunging into the repair of specific items, the author introduces the reader to the sources of power—electricity-—then covers the manner in which this power is transported to the home in a chapter on House Wiring. Safety measures, too, are outlined and the reader is cautioned on how to protect himself and his family both in the repair and use of these handy—but sometimes dangerous—electric assistants.
Since the most used home appliance is the modern washing machine, a greater coverage is offered, with special field reports by a group of well known writers and photographers. Profusely illustrated with photos, diagrams and charts, the section covers trouble shooting for all makes of washers— with specific information on:
