I am the wonderful owner of these amazing PINK Multi-MATICS - - Now the problem starts - The impeller Fin on the pump broke loose and came thru the plastic housing on the pump. I'm looking for a housing or either a total pump assembly for this machine. Any help will be much appreciated = Let me know if anyone has any part that will make this machine run again.
Thanks !!!!

Awesome Frigidaire and hope youíre able to get a pump for it soon.

Also: Is the stacked front-load pair branded Westinghouse? I had the same pair, but mine were branded as Gibsons. My next pair was the Frigidaire front-loader pictured in white.

I recall the Gibson would pause and the buzzer would sound so you could add fabric softener when it had filled for the final rinse.

Congratulations Bob!!!! That's a beautiful set. If you can't find a pump you can always use either a floor drain for draining or if you don't have a floor drain you can wire in an electric pump. I can help you with that if you need worse comes to worse.

Iím almost positive that thatís the model washer I grew up with, though ours was white instead of pink. Iíve been looking for one for years. I came home from the Army back in 1984 and found that my parents had replaced it with a Filter Flow. They kept the dryer out in the garage where it still sits to this day, but the washer was carted away by the delivery guys that brought the GE set. Unfortunately the dryer is a lesser model with no lighted console.
