In Topic: Service Manual Request Whirlpool Washer LA5558XTW2

Muchas gracias!

Not to look a gift horse in the mouth, but... document #5, the Care and Use Manual, has a title page, a page of Whirlpool copyright drivel, and then 2 pages containing naught but the word "blank".

Would a non-blank version perchance be available?

In Topic: Manual request for Whirlpool Model LPA4505W0

Belt drive. Bigger than 24". The serial number definitely begins with LPA, not LPR.

I notice the tag says it was made by "Whirlpool Corporation, Benton Harbor, Michigan, USA." No zip code! Is it possible this machine predates the imposition of zip codes?

Hi Willie.

We probably bought our old Whirlpool machine about 24 years ago when you were a noviate appliantologist. It was then undoubtedly old enough to vote. So, even the old outmoded held-together-with-baling-wire washers back then had this same style of fill valve?

I suppose I could take the fill valve off the old machine and dissect it in the name of Science...

That's what I said, LPA4505W0.

I have stumped a Sublime Master?

We bought this machine 25 years ago for about $50, and it was no spring chicken then. It served us faithfully for years (if one mercifully forgets the vocabulary-building hours I spent laying under the thing with a trouble light). A few months ago it suddenly flooded the floor, with a pretty hefty stream of water coming out the center of the tub, around the main shaft. I figured it was either a seal, or a hole in the tub, and that it was not worth fixing. Or is it?

Speaking of theft prevention tricks, I was talking to Jasper the Potter as he packed up his pots and clay etc. after an old-timey-crafts demonstration thingy. Inside his authentic period white canvas wall tent were hidden the heavy duty plastic boxes he hauls his wares in. But among said boxes was a plastic bucket of the sort kitty litter is sold in, still prominently labeled as such. I asked what he used the kitty litter for. Jasper looked around to see if anyone else was listening, then told me in a conspiratorial whisper, "That's my camera case. I've had several cameras stolen, but never since I started using this for the case."
