that was actually pretty awesome and very entertaining.

I actually have seen this one too.

Never go up against a Whirlpool when lolz are on the line!

I lost it when the drum started rolling around the yard.

If I ever win a big lottery I'm not going to buy a Ferrari, I'm going to buy 30 front loading Whirlpool machines, fill 'em full of sparklers and bottle rockets, and then build an electrified pyramid of self-destructive awesomeness.

I wonder what it would have done to a kitchen if it was installed between units and under a worktop? How much of the whole kitchen would it destroy?

Here's the full length video.

Thanks for, uh, informing us of that. I guess.

This should never be tried by anyone, but when I was young at my uncle's farm in Indiana he hooked up the intake hose of an old washer to a 5 gallon can of gasoline and turned it on in the middle of a rinse cycle.

I'm not really sure how to describe it.  Nothing exploded, but it flung lit gasoline out of the canister (it was horizontally mounted) for a good 50 feet.  Like a circle or pinwheel of fire.

That was more fun to watch than I thought it would be.  Makes me want to find a cheap washer on Craigslist.  I noticed that he hooked the motor directly to the power line instead of going through the washer control circuitry.  Smart thinking.

This video needs to be Benny Hillified. Cracked me up, although I worried for a second that the drum was going to roll out and hit something or someone.

/Thanks for that Harlem Shake Washing Machine video. Great!

I wanna see the slow mo guys do this
 
2013-04-22 12:31:01 AM  
I guess its hard to impress me these days. I didn't think much of the video. I guess when youve seen 5 dryers injected with a heavy object and shaken apart... a 6th time is just standard fare.
 
2013-04-22 12:41:52 AM  
Never have quite understood the amusement in destroying things that still work...

Least I assume that thing still worked before he rigged it.

Check that... I 'll build two pyramids of machines...  Should still be cheaper than a Ferrari, but it may cut into my Netjets budget.  At least it will be all kinds American made marvelous!

You do laundry in the kitchen.  Laundry room or garage are more common, but to each his own.

Just make the base of the pyramid with front loading machines and put a top load at the top, with gasoline.  It will look like a Christmas Tree of Redneck Destruction.

Curious. Do you own a washing machine now?

I love how the drum goes rogue toward the end and comes after the camera man.

I really wanted the heavy object to kick out and destroy one of the cars in the background once it started flopping around.
 
2013-04-22 07:28:41 AM  
I was going to say that that's what happens when you have a beltless drive system, but then the entire drum came out and did a 180 and I saw the belt on the back.  Dayum.

Most non-American washing machines are either in the kitchen, under the counter, or in one of the bathrooms.

From TFA: Machine was donated by one of Dad's friends, who happens to be a fan of the channel and wanted to see it die again, it was a power surge victim with a leaky drum unit, so its not a waste to scrap it.

In the UK with our tiny houses it's common for the washer to be in the kitchen.

Actually I've NEVER seen a video of a washing machine self-destructing and for the first one this was great.

Thanks subby!
