This is an old Maytag washer. The control panel quit so we "hacked" it. The dipole controls the agitate and spin cycles. The other switches control hot or cold water. I really liked that I could customize my loads for specific load size, water temperature, and length of agitation or spin time. It worked really great for both delicate bedding and heavily soiled work clothes. Could also work well for horse tack or pet bedding. $20 OBO. Its a fun washer.
