    Maytag front loader commercial duty with water saver. Then I toss them into the dryer on permanent press cycle.

    East Street Gallery washer. Older than dirt, but it works fine :-)

    I just developed (pardon the pun) my own washer that is not the simplest system, but it is fairly efficient and can be had for only ~$10. I bought an adapter from a hardware store that I can screw a length of plastic hose with a connector onto. The opposite end of the hose lies in the bottom of a bucket that I allow to overflow. After 10 min. without wash aid, I hang to dry in the shower. There's no slots so the print(s) float around in the bucket.

    I hope that you're not completely serious about that. I'd feel queasy about having my prints tumble dry.
    If you are considering switching to digital, ask yourself this: What would Ansel do?

    I use button magnets to hold them on the drum, set timer for 30 mins, and kick back to watch them dry.

    I wash mine in a Gravity Works 11x14 print washer. It is expensive but light enough to mount on the wall and seems to be pretty efficient. I dry them in the dryer, no starch but some fabric softener . The dryer fortunately has a drying cabinet with a half dozen racks ready for prints.

    Zone VI 16x20, but I need to cement some kind of valve and hose connector on the drain plug thing at the bottom. I cannot drain it from the cart on which it lives.

    Sounds like a sledge hammer to kill a fly.

    Interesting name 'Gravity Works'. By the way, when it comes to print washing, gravity does not work! Contrary to popular believe, fixer does not sink to the bottom of the washer.

    Just checking to see if anyone REALLY pays attention to the posts, or if they are here to toot their own horn.

    BTW I wash in the bath tub like most folks do(I loves that shower action)---But really--I use a large tray to wash my prints. kodak recommends using a 'fast' water flow of water at a rate of 12 complete changes per hour, so I soak for 5 min. intervals, with 12 changes.

    I second that. I wish I could have gotten the 20x24.
