Strangely compelling viewing.

Put metal objects in drum, shunt a load of extra current through the machine, stand well back and watch the carnage.

Pretty dangerous but oddly impressive.

I also like the other one in which some guy throws a brick in a fully spinning drum...

It's a testament of how durable those things are, even if these guys just bypass every safety feature and hotwire the drive motor.

My question is WHY?
Take a washing machine in good condition and then destroy it  
He could have given it to a charity or similar.

My guess is that it was suffering from the usual malady of aging front-loading washing machines- water leaks, and that the cost of repair (or the simple unavailability of replacement parts) was high enough to make purchasing a new machine a better proposition.

Yeah, that appears to work too.

But god help him if some part had flown off and injured somebody. You had some pretty serious metal parts spinning with some high intensity.


I was raised by a cup of coffee.

Honestly that's pretty amazing. Would've been awesome if they'd had a Phantom high speed camera to shoot at various points as well.

That was oddly satisfying to watch. I was very surprised how long it kept going relatively intact after the door had fallen off. This would be an awesome high speed camera shot.

Oh –eventually I know why you started that war. Finally you managed to destroy all these WMDs in that evil washing machine.  Smile

This video has some high speed footage of some similar carnage:

That was strangely...satisfying. No doubt this will give a few kids some ideas on how to get back at their parents for grounding them!


So we beat on against the current, borne back ceaselessly into the past.

Do we know what the make and model of the washing-machine was? That video is attest to the quality of the Manufacturer's products. I would think that those who designed/engineered the washing-machine would be proud of how long it stayed intact for.

Heck, I've seen some hottie college girls in Daisy Duke Shorts stuff a washing machine with a 20 lb capacity with 60 lbs worth of skanky laundry including white thong panties with racing stripes and a spent tampon tangled in them. Even the Maytag Repairman would throw his hands up in disgust.
