Well, the Splendide washer discharge pump finally gave up the ghost. It lived a long 26 years. Since Splendide thinks that just not selling the pump anymore will get me to buy a whole new unit, I ordered the newer different discharge pump and modified the washer to use it. Basically the new pump combines the filter and pump into one unit. I made a mounting plate for the new pump and mounted it where the filter was. The mount allowed me to cant the pump since the hoses are at 90' instead of 180' as the original. I had to make an extension power line to the pump. Tested and it all works great for 10% the cost of the unit. Not that we use it that often, but I like having the option.

I'll snap a few tomorrow. I need to adjust the discharge hose and test it out one more time. Seems like the pump has a hard time getting the water out of the hose and since the hose is longer it keeps trying to run the pump. I might put a check valve in there or lengthen the discharge hose so that it will siphon into the drain.
