I'm in the middle of an overhaul of a Maytag E2. My pump sat full of water for years and is beyond repair. Phil does not have one in stock.

Does anybody have one for sale? I'd prefer one in good condition that didn't need a rebuild.

Don't make me buy another washer just for the pump...

I've found often seaching places like eBay using the par

Brings something. I may not be 100%, but you never know.

Many persons put things up on eBay without knowing what they've got. There are hundreds of appliance parts listed currently with nothing more than a picture of the thing or container. No part number and or mention of where it belongs.

Sadly if you do not wish to wait around and hope, purchasing another unit just for the parts may be the fastest way to go.

Thank you Laundress for your sage advice...

I only discovered last month (to my profound embarrassment for my fellow Americans)that I could double my eBay/craigslist search results if I looked under "ringer washers".

I wonder if British ringer washers have that funny double-buzz like their phones do.

I think it's a crazy price - not sure how much you are willing to spend - but have you seen this one on eBay?

Takes my breath away...

Thanks Ted for remembering my poor pumpless E2, but that price is astonishing. I think it's more than I paid for my entire collection of vintage washers...

Ha! Astonishing is almost an understatement, Bill! Laundress says, "sometimes you gotta do what you gotta do!" I think (and hope) you'll find something more reasonable sooner or later!

You know what the nicest thing about a Maytag ringer is?

You don't need a pump.

I have a pumpless N2 and NX that are my daily drivers, and they do just fine draining into the floor sump in the cellar. I love Victorian plumbing.

I bought the E2LP to retire the NX, since I feel it's too rare to be using as a daily. So what I'll do is just hook the hose up to the tank, and dump away as before until I spot a more reasonably priced pump.

I'm just flabbergasted because there was ALWAYS a pump available on eBay, and now that I need it, they're gone.

Isn't that....

about the way it goes? One will come along. ...and you're right - you absolutely do not need a pump. My grandmothers never had pumps on theirs and got along very well. As long as there is a floor drain, they work well.

You might want to see if there is a way to install one of the self-powered electric drain pumps used in modern automatics in the machine. I would not be stock, but if you don't have a floor drain, it could save draining the water into a bucket and pouring it into the sink.
