Disconnect the drain line from the wall, place a bucket under the line as you lower it. Gravity will drain the tub.

If you are sepaking of the lid switch, simply remove the two wires going to the switch and connect them together. Otherwise, remove the front cover and then remove the hose from the pump and place the hose in a large bucket....When full put the hose back on the pump and repeat until empty......

Vibration


With the age of the machine, although Speed Queen's are built like a tank, the suspension systems are one of the most worked systems on a clothes washer,so, that being said, I would check all related parts of the suspension system, springs,pivot,etc,.these parts do get tired, think of the amount of loads of clothes that you have run through the washer over those 15 years.

Good Luck !

Washer wont spin in the spin cycle.Washer was full of water and making a buzzing noise.If you have any suggestions what it might be that would be great. Kenmore 80 series washer about 11 years old.


sounds like the lower bearing on the trans mission shaft is seizing up on you. had a frigedair that did the same thing. i took it apart to replace, but could not buy separate. it only came with a purchase of a new transmission,which ran $175- 275. so i junked it out. washer was only 5 years old.

Maytag Performa - Loud Noises during Spin Cycle


This washer is JUNK!!!!!! We have the same washer (2 1/2 years old) and same problem. Tried to replace the bearing myself, no luck. So I called a repair man to come out and look at it. As soon as i told him the model number, they would'nt even come out. Very common problem for this washer. We are on our way to Sears to purchase a Kenmore.....GOOD LUCK
