Wascomat commercial washer – 44 years old and still going strong

Take a look at this clip sent in by one of our satisfied customers! It’s a testament to the strength and reliability of Wascomat coin laundry equipment. Pat Hays, owner of Dukes Coin Laundry, still has an old Wascomat Blue Top washer in her store, going strong since 1970.  Serviceman Keith Long’s dad sold the laundromat to Pat about 32 years ago and he remains Pat’s serviceman today.

“I have customers that specifically want to use that machine,” states Pat. “It’s still kicking and doing a great job 44 years later. Works great, cleans great, and still has the old style timer.  I believe in Wascomats. They can really take the abuse of a coin laundry environment.”

“I couldn’t agree more,” shares Keith. “It’s in really great shape. Works like it’s brand new.”

We thank Keith and Pat for sharing this story with us.
