WORLD'S FIRST WASHING MACHINE
THE LONGEST LIST OF THE LONGEST STUFF AT THE LONGEST DOMAIN NAME AT LONG LAST

What was the world's first washing machine?

No we are not going to say the wife, in all likelihood it was a rock.

In 1782 H. Sidgier of Great Britain built a cage full of rods and a handle to turn it, creating what may be the world's first attempt at a washing machine.

In 1797 the scrub board was invented.

The next evolution in washing machines came in 1851 when James King patented a washing machine with a drum.

In 1858 Hamilton Smith came out with the reverse action revolving drum.

Somewhere around 1900, with the help of drive belts, the first powered washing machines came into use, being driven by a gas or steam engine.

In 1906 A.J. Fisher came out with the first electric washing machine, although this is in dispute as at least one earlier patent does exist.

In 1937 the Bendix Corporation introduced the world's first automatic washing machine and the lives of housewives was made easier from that day on.
