Death of a Washing Machine

(YouTube link)

An expensive-looking front loader gives its all. It does not go gently ...but keeps up the good fight astonishingly long after its parts begin to fly off. This would make a decent ad for the make and model, much better than the washing machine destroyed previously. You have to start feeling sorry for the little machine that just kept going and going and going. -via The Daily What

Update: The original video, uploaded last fall by Aussie50, has more information:

Concrete counterweights and good spare parts were removed from this before doing this test :D

Kudos to Photonicinduction for inspiring/encouraging me to perfect the washing machine kill cycle!

and if you have any doubts about what went in around the 3:40 mark, it was a motor from a similar machine, not a cat or dog like some idiots are claiming!.... sicko's!

Thanks, Croccydile!

Just to be sure no one is scared: They must have disarmed the Unbalanced Load sensor. Unaltered washing machines would have stopped at the first serious shake.
