VIDEO: Hoovermatic 3301L TwinTub Washing Machine (1964)

This is Hoover UK`s third series of TwinTub, produced in 1964 at the Hoover Washing Machine factory at Merthyr Tydfil, South Wales. It washes 6lbs of clothes and spin dries the same. It uses a spinning pulsator in the side of the tub, which wizzes round at 545rpm, producing active currents of water which move the clothes quite fast around the tub. The maximum wash time is usually 4 mins. The spin dryer spins at 2,100rpm to spin all the water out of the clothes leaving items just damp for ironing. The washtub is capable of being used as a boiler as it has a powerful 3kw heater, this is linked to a heater timer and you can set the temperature and the washing action starts when the correct temp is reached.

This machine has had a complete overhaul, new pump, belts and internal hoses, along with a visit to the “Spar of Neil” where it had the spin lid re-built due to eroding with the caustic soap powder residues and had a cabinet re-spray..Thanks Neil….ready for another 60yrs of Hoover Active water Action!!!
