I don't think the picture is set as public, it asked me for a password.

Sorry, I couldn't see the picture.

Is it an automatic or wringer?

Seems to be a 1959 Frog eye Kenmore. Go to sears web site and type in 110.5914500 in the model no box. You can view the breakdown list and diagram. See if this appears to be the model you have.

Thanks Greg! I cannot believe that Sears has that '59 machine available on their web site. Good for Sears!

Robert, I was surprised to find it there myself. There are many early models still there. I noticed though that the transmission section is missing on them. I wonder if there is a reason or if it was just missed when they put it on their web site.

gearcase picture

Nice that the pictures are there, but unfortunately it doesn't mean the parts are available. But at least you get part numbers taht you can use when searching for parts on other sites.

Since they don't service the gearcase parts individually (at least, not anymore) the only picture you'll see is the gearcase assembly, under the "drive" section.
