Full Answer

According to Lehmans, the Home Queen wringer washer is the only wringer washing machine available to consumers, as of 2014. The wringer washer, including the Home Queen model, requires draining used water into buckets or into a floor drain. The washer is filled using buckets or a hose. Each article of clothing must be manually pushed through the rolling wringer, after both the wash and rinse cycles to remove excess water. When used outside, the gray water may be drained in buckets or a drainage system can be constructed for convenience. Most people prefer to use wringer washing machines outdoors to prevent spills inside the home.
