Description

Thor washers quickly became a staple in American households and established the Thor brand as a symbol of quality and innovation. The Thor washer made life easier by taking much of the labour out of a once arduous task. A machine could now handle the washing duties, freeing up many hours that before had been spent scrubbing laundry.
