Would anyone have a pump for the Lady Kenmore Wringer pictured below? It is circa 1964 (approx)
Would like to use the washer inside but can't without the ability to pump the water out of the machine.
Many thanks and Happy New Year!!

What is wrong with the current pump?

These washers IIRC were made by Whirlpool, and you can find the service manual in the library here in the group courtesy of our Fearless Leader.

One purchased a copy of same when considering a WP wringer being offered for sale locally, but never followed up and eventually went with a Maytag.

Service manual details how to "fix" a pump not working due to inoperable impeller and other problems. The two port pump does not look like any of the ones used for Whirlpool automatics one has seen. That being said do have a two port NOS WP pump lying about spare if that is of any use.

My '48 Kenmore wringer would gravity drain fine but not pump. Thanks to a Canadian member that had an identical that one found out it was a disintegrated rubber on the friction wheel. Vacuum belts work perfect, as I doubt that Sears part has been available for many years.

The pump was not the strong part of these machines and they have not been available for decades, if I were you I would install an electric drain from modern TL washer like GE or FD.
