If the motor is running then the water pump or the clutch to it has failed. If the motor is not running, the motor has failed. Both fixes are probably too expensive for a 20 year old machine. Unless you are very handy and resourceful it may be time for a new machine.

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 .. :)

What is the capacity (Size) of the Speed Queen Marathon Washer?


Pi,r,squared times height. Remember math back when we didn't have computers? So that's 3.14 x radius(half the distance across drum)squared(times itself) times height or depth of drum. Remember to do radius times itself first, then Pi, then height.

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.
good luck

Amana lw8203w leaking


Your LW8203W is at least 12 years old. It is leaking from the tub seal, Your machine needs to be rebuilt or replaced.

If you have it rebuilt I would also put in a new belt, pump, brake pads, upper tub bearing and the tub seal it needs.

Call and authorized Speed Queen or Amana dealership and ask for a price quote over the phone. Then price out a new machine.

Your choice.

Draining water from inside through center.


The tub seal kit is $85 USD, You will also need a drive bell kit$23 USD, you should replace the upper bearing $?, for a complete rebuilt I would also replace the brake pads all three, and the belt, maybe the pump if it doesnt come off easily. Plus what you break taking it apart, so we are looking @ least $150.

Yes you can do it yourself, you dont need the tub wrench if you can borrow a deep socket, its the drive bell seal tool you really need.

Please let me know if you have additional questions. the serial number will tell you the age first two digits are year next two are month, starts with and R, built in Ripon WI.
