SOURCE: How do I change the transmission in a speed queen

here is a breakdown diagram if you need it.

Step 1 Cut off all power to the machine

Step 2 Turn off water supply
Step 3 - Drain Line If removing the drain and water lines provide more access to replacing the washing machine transmission, go ahead and remove it.
Step 4 - Water Turn off the water supply knob. In case you cannot find it then turn off the water supply lines till the job is completed.
Step 5 - Control Panel Take off the screws at the front end of the control panel. Use a screwdriver. Once the screws are removed, pull out the console and flip it free.
Step 6 - Unplug the Wires Locate the wires that act as harness. You need to unplug these wires. Use a flat ended blade to push the clips that hold the wires in place. This will release the wires.
Step 7 - Cabinet The next step in the washing machine transmission replacement process is, to lift up the lid and pull out the cabinet from the washing machine by tilting the machine towards you.
Step 8 - Screws After you remove the cabinet you will find an agitator cap. Below the cap are screws and bolts which are protected by a plastic cover. Unscrew the bolts and the screw to remove the agitator. This will reveal the shaft where the transmission is located.
Step 9 - Pump Remove the spring clips that hold the pump in place. Remove the two additional screws on the motor as well. There is no need to remove the hoses.
Step 10 - Freeing the Unit With the help of a flat tip screwdriver, take off the clip at the bottom. Make sure the motor doesn't fall off. Releasing the clip at the top will free the motor and the coupling from the washing machine transmission unit.
Step 11 - Installation Free the washing machine transmission from the frame. Make sure to remove the two bolts. Tilt and slide the unit at the bottom. Make sure not to damage any washers in the process.
Step 12 - Final Step After removing the old, place the new washing machine transmission in place by following the steps above in reverse order. Reconnect all the pipes and fitting. urn on the power supply, open the water supply and test the machine

Make sure that the lid switch is working as it can make the program from advancing forward. So check the continuity of the switch that goes to trigger the main board.
If Ok then the program controller is not functioning, if you can try to change manually then the control board is faulty.

Machine making loud noise on spins cycle

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.

My speed queen top loader is leaking water during the washing period. Water is coming out of the bottom of the washing machine while it is washing

It is probably the pump. Run the washer with the front off of it. The pump is on the bottom of the motor.

Easy repair.
