Speed Queen Marathon Heavy Duty Top Load Washer Model: NA8831W33931

Started a load of laundry (it might have been too full)
I had already done about 7 loads that day with hot water
It fill just fine but when it tried to agitate, the washer switched off and when I opened the lid smoke came out. (It smelled electrical.)
I uplugged the waher.
Later I plugged it back in and I tried the spin cycle and it drained out the water from the load. I did not notice a smell.
I unplugged it again.
Do you have any idea what I might have done?

This is from not enough HOT loads.

Fatty deposits gather between the basket and tub during COLD washes.

Then they are being released in large numbers when you do your whites on HOT.

It is recommended to do 1 HOT load per week.

Do an empty load with some degreaser added (like Goo-Gone) on the fullest/hottest setting you have.

It sound like you drain hose is siphoning off the rinse water, It needs a standpipe make sure the drain hose is at about the height of the top of the washer, Make sure the drain hose isnt stuck in the drain it also needs an air cap. the drain hose should not lay on the floor to run to the drain

Please let me know if this doesnt solve your problems

Hi, just fixed the daughters speed queen, same problem. The three brake shoes were worn allowing the tub to spin with the agitator.
replaced the shoes, washer fine. At first I thought it was the top ring. spent 30 dollars for nothing.
good luck

SOURCE: What is the capacity (Size) of the Speed Queen Marathon Washer?

Pi,r,squared times height. Remember math back when we didn't have computers? So that's 3.14 x radius(half the distance across drum)squared(times itself) times height or depth of drum. Remember to do radius times itself first, then Pi, then height.

The water flowing into my speed queen is vert slow


The to ensure that the water valves at the inlets are fully open. If they are, then shut them off and remove the hoses from the supply to the washer. There is usually a small metal screen-type filter in the connection at the back of the washer for each hose. These may be clogging up. They can be carefully removed, cleaned, and reinstalled.
