Question about Speed Queen AWS52NW Top Load Washer

SPEED QUEEN TOP LOAD WASHER HA4011W. Motor trips at SPIN start

SPEED QUEEN TOP LOAD WASHER HA4011W-3000; a 25 year old M/c.. It had a seal successful seal repair job this week. Now after WASH, the motor is tripping while starting SPIN to drain at the end of WASH cycle and when trying for final SPIN cycle.

Normally the agitator was freely rotating in one direction and now it is not free in either direction. It seems the TRANSMISSION remains in WASH cycle always or brake is active perpetually

I have used the ‘brake action’ to prevent rotation to tighten the large HUB HEX NUT with hammering on spanner.

Was this detrimental and it caused the current condition?

Please help with the remedial action to get the W/M into spinning cycle.

Speed queen top load washer does not agitate properly


you need to see if the motor turns one direction during wash and the other during the spin. If so, your gearbox is faulty and needs replacement. If motor only goes in one direction at all times, then very possible, the timer is faulty.

P.O.S. Whirpool Calypso Washer and Dryer!


:) Hey... The absolute best machine on the market are the ones from SPEED QUEEN. THey wash clothes dependably, are direct dirve, and spin out the water better than any other on the market. THe speed queen machines pump and spin at the same time. THe other brands (including newer maytag-made by whirlpool) don't do this anymore, for they pump the water out, let the clotes go to the bottom of the tub, then attempt to spin causing them to wobble shake and shimmy as they get off balance. Speed Queen, on the other hand spins and pumps at the same time. THis means the clothes are spun out to the sides of the tub from the to to the bottom. MOre water is spun out so less drying time is required. Water is cheap but gas and electricity is expensive. So, if you are going to save one.. i suggest the shorter drying time to be the winner! THe old maytag machines that lasted people 30+ years before they quit had this technology.... Speed Queen still has it! THe warranty on speed queen machines includes 3 years without buying extended warranty.. all others make you purchace this.. SOme of them don't even come with a year! SHAME On you! Find a speed queen dealer and at least go look .. :)

Won't drain - no pumping sounds at all


if agitates an does not spin means is not going to drain, cause for not spinning broken door switch, look an see if you can feel it hanging or loose, if the swtich is broken it will not go into spin mode at all...........door switch is a safety device!

At start of spin cycle water splashes over top and runs down.


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.
