how do I convert a wringer on a wringer washer to hand cranked? Answered

I have an old electric wringer washing machine. I cannot get the wringer to function. I was wondering if any of you can tell me how to either get it working, or how to convert it so I can use it as a hand cranked wringer. Thank you

Its going to depend on the machine. My grandmother's ancient machine had a pair of gears that needed to be aligned before the wringer would work. WHat have you got, what have you tried ? Its quite likely that the thing has a shear pin, to protect the machine, and your fingers from jams. Finding and replacing the pin maybe all you need to do.
