  • (soft upbeat music)

  • - Everybody's got their favorite part of the cycle.

  • There are people that love the wash,

  • they love the rinse, or the spin, or the drain.

  • I'm a spin guy.

  • I love the spin.

  • My name is Jon Charles, and

  • I'm a washer collector enthusiast.

  • - Laundry day.

  • - [Jon] The club got started around 1987, I think,

  • and now we have, like, 3,000 members from all over the world.

  • We get together for washes.

  • You do laundry 'til like four in the morning,

  • you do your margaritas and you launder together.

  • - To laundry.

  • - To laundry.

  • - [Jon] We watch the cycles, you'll see a lot of us

  • just stand there and watch the whole cycle go through.

  • - Oh, oh my God.

  • - All 3,000 of us come in with a story like

  • I thought I was the only one,

  • I thought I was the only person in the world that did this.

  • In the collection, I've got 59 machines,

  • and I've got 22 hooked up and running

  • down here in the basement.

  • (knocking)

  • I have a good representation of everything

  • that was made, from 1938 to today.

  • And I take them all apart and I restore them 'cause

  • I wanna know how everything works inside the machine.

  • And then the laundry is for me,

  • it's sorta like the frosting on the cake.

  • These machines represent a lot of ways

  • of doing things in each decade that changed,

  • that we no longer do.

  • And I think it's something that should be

  • preserved for other people,

  • if we can get them interested.

  • I just can't go to a cocktail party

  • and say, “How's your washer doing?”

  • They'd look at me like I was crazy.

  • But I can get together with these guys,

  • let my hair down, uh, it's just so much fun

  • to be able to have a conversation about it,

  • 'cause I know laundry's a chore for everybody else,

  • but for us it's play.
