I am slowly cleaning out and moving most of the parts out of my basement that we have saved over the last 50+ years of appliance repairing and collecting, some of these parts were hauled home on my bicycle before I was driving.


If anyone wants to help move and sort parts I will compensate you for your help. A few pictures of the project, I have already moved a lot of it.


See if any one can identify all the DW motors on the work bench, or many other vintage appliance parts.


John L.

I may be able to come up and help for a day in a few weekends John. I have to work this coming one, but I'll let you know.

The d/w motor in picture 2 on the bottom left reminds me of the '55 D&M Kenmore that Paul owns now. It's not exact, but it's very close.

Hi John, if I'm right several of the pumps on the first page are for Frigidaire Spin Tube machines (black housing with side port exit), but I also spot a rare Thermador wash pump from their early spray arm models (the ones with the Z shaped wash tower/arm) It is the one in the middle of pic 1 with two pumps on the motor. The large front pump was for the wash action, the small rear one for draining.

Regarding the Frigidaire pumps, one or two of them might also be for Whirlpools first spray arm machines (like the one Paul just received)? I can't tell from the top angle, but they appear the same.

I also spotted a few GE vertical flow pumps, and a few early KA pumps (KD11-12).

I would love to help out, but cannot make it back there at the moment. I, too, still have a few pieces from my early collecting days! :)

Cleaning Out

If I could make the drive, I would love to come and help out. For me the work would be more than compensation. It would be like working in a candy store. But in lieu of working, I would be willing to buy the shaft seals and bearings for my Kenmore if you so happen to have them. If you have a bearing installer/puller that would be a bonus. If you are in a selling frame of mind, give me a ballpark price. This Kenmore Limited Edition is the last machine I have room for and will own. I so want to get her up and running. Thanks Losangeles

Hi, John! Oh my - I would love to help, but I'm in CA. I would be interested in purchasing any motor, pump or other parts you may have for a Frigidaire Custom Imperial Dishwasher - Model DW-IUF. I'll email you.....

Been a couple decades since I last looked at that shelf.

Pretty sure the aroma of old appliance parts will always be programmed into my brain though!

I am in need of a Speed Wringer washer pump that attaches to the bottom of the motor. I have plenty of the other pumps but need a bottom motor mount pump. Would you happen to have one? If you have one complete I would pay you your asking price plus shipping of course. Thanks Jim
