Sounds like you are looking for a record changer that washes both sides and dries them. It's called an employee.
Record cleaning is a three-stage process. The machines wet the records. The brush gets the liquid into the nooks and crannies. The vacuum dries them.
I gave up on washing machines a while ago. I use Disc Doctor, properly diluted, in a spray mist. I wipe with a microfiber cloth, the rough side to wipe the surface, the smoother one to get into the grooves. If you really need to be sure to get into the grooves, use one of Duane's (the Dr) micro fibre brushed.
Doing the dishes in thus way has been part of my regular routine here almost since the product came out. It looks expensive, but, once diluted, is compatible with most other such products. It works on LPs, 78s, etc. I use it to get fingerprints off CD surfaces.
I find my method works fine. I can concentrate on spots where the problem is more profound and be sure that, if it doesn't yield to treatment, the issue is other than dirt and/or mold. Some scuffing yield to it, most doesn't.
I also use Ronson lighter fluid for adhesive labels. Others use a hair drier which is ok for LP covers but re4cords do warp and melt.
I suppose ARSC could use a workshop on record cleaning, both to prepare a record for resale and for playing, especially for dubbing.
Anyway my \devalued $ .02.

Apologies for cross-posting.
I would be very interested in any opinions on and reviews of the better record washing devices on the market, such as the Monks and VPI units. Personal experience and online links both very welcome. I need to clean and digitize a few hundred 78s so a machine that is at least semi-automated would be great.
Thanks in advance for your insights and help,
