  • HARYE STAVROPOULOS May 27, 2009

    me and my husband took it apart lastnight and the tub does speen but when it comes time to agitate it hums and i do smell something electrical. also the agitator on the other washer has a little play when you move it with your hand but the problem one is stiff and will not move, if this is a transmission problem would it be better to just buy a new washer?I have 2 commercial whirlpools for about 5 years and no problems, these speed queens are about the same age and we are constantly fixing them (dryers also).

Sounds like it is in the gearbox, possible broken gear

    Yes I would advise you to buy a new washer and a different brand as well, it is very expensive to have the gearbox repaired as you basically have to strip the whole machine down to get to the gearbox and the hourly charges these days are just a rip off.

    If you go to the auctions when they are auctioning white goods you will most probably get a new machine with a couple of dints or scratches on it for around half the price.

    hope this has helped you decide.

    all the best with your new machine.

Will not start washing process


Is the belt broke?

If not, will it spin it you put it in spin mode?

If it spins, but not agitates, the transmission is locked up in agitation and needs replaced. This is a major undertaking.

Unscew the cap on the top of the agitator, then hit it back and forth with your hand and it will break loose. I just did it to mine today and it has not been of for twenty years.
