Question about Speed Queen AWS52NW Top Load Washer
Believe from main seal water pours from bottom
Is it a bad leak like it will not fill up with water or just a small leak.
If it will not fill up it most likely is the tub seal. If it is a small leak it might be the water pump seal. There are two screws at the base of the machine that takes a 5/16" or a 8mm socket to remove them.
remove the front cover and start the machine filling and watch for the water DO NOT STICK YOUR HAND IN SIDE THERE WHILE THE MACHINE IS ON!!!! Here is the repair manual for your machine.
If I was you I would repair the machine instead of replacing it. these are awesome machines I have 20 of them in my laundromat that are 19 years old and still trucking every day. the seal is some work you will need some tools and a 3 jaw puller to replace it but you can rent them at most auto parts stores. If it is the pump that is a simple fix just remember to clean and grease the end of the shaft .
here is the repair manual for your machine and the number should be AWZS52
here is the seal kit
here is the water pump

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.

Well, the only time the washer (speedqueen) is noisy on spin is if one or both the bearings are faulty. Normally when you get a leak, it means the hub/flange and seal kit need replacement and this also includes the top bearing because when soap suds leak past the seal assembly it drips directly onto the bearing. The acidic properties in the soap suds eats the grease in the bearing which ends up becoming defective. One can also get an anoying squeek if a bottom base gasket is worn or removed. This would be audible even on wash cycle.Conclusion, check the bearing on top of gearbox.
