This is a 1940s Maytag Gyratator - the first agitating washing machine/wringer-dryer. I found one like it on Craigslist over a year ago and it took almost that long to finally get it working. I love it now and keep it on my back patio. I used to say if I couldn't get it working I would turn it into a planter. I happened to see this passing by a laundromat the other day and had a good laugh. :D
