    I really do not see Pathfinder being the simplest tool to create this. Far simpler with the pen tool or maybe create circles and delete certain parts of them and then connect where wanted with the line tool. You can use this drawing as a template.

I wouldn't use Pathfinder here either.. but Shape Builder will help...

Simple line a circle...

enter image description here

Duplicate circle and align things...

enter image description here

Delete half of each circle...

enter image description here

Join the 3 pieces...

enter image description here

Reflect Horizontally as a copy, then reflect vertically to get the circles on the other side of the line.

enter image description here

Join these two pieces, then copy the entire thing to the right...

enter image description here

Using the Direct Selection Tool (White arrow) delete the bottom circles on the right and with the Pen Tool add a horizontal line....

enter image description here

Align the bottom horizontal to the circle on the left. Then draw simple horizontal paths across areas that are currently open but need to be closed....

enter image description here

Select all and use the Shape Builder Tool to combine areas into closed shapes...

enter image description here

Because Shape Builder had some trouble with a few of the line extensions, I used the Direct Selection Tool to zoom in and remove those remnants...

enter image description here

Select all, set the stroke to black and the fill to white...

enter image description here

You can then use the Direct Selection tool to select half the anchors and adjust the width if desired...
