Judging by other pictures I have seen I believe I have a 1972 lady kenmore washing machine. I have attached pictures if anyone could verify that. My main question is where can I find a new drive belt for it? I have searched online and havenít found anything.

Serial number says manufactured 44th week (Oct 27-31) of 1969.

Does it take the skinny quiet-pak belt?† Here's an old discussion about it but the part number isn't mentioned, although it is mentioned that at the time (9 years ago) Whirlpool had only 80 of them on-hand.

Iím not sure how to tell but I would guess it is the skinny belt. I was surprised how small it was when I first looked at it

It takes the 96388 belt, there are lots of genuine FSP belts on Ebay for as little as $7.
