Speed queen washing machine fills water but does not agitate but all other cycles spin and rinse working perfect. i took out the belt and started the cycle and the motor was moving fine.


the motor spins with out the belt , makes me tend to discount the capacitor
I would be looking for a tub brake that is not being opened to allow the tub to agitate
there are solenoid activated brake under the machine the applies a brake when you lift the lid during wash, when the program is finished
have a technician check it out

When the spin cycle begins the washer vibirates and moves on the floor. After the spin cycle reaches the maxium speed it stops. The springs are fine, but what else could be wrong?


The machine is probably not leveled properly. To level the machine, partly fill it with water. Make sure that the drum is standing in the middle of the machine and then adjust the machine until the water is at the same level all around at the nearest set of holes to the water. Check that the drum is still in the center of the outer drum. Make sure that the adjusting feet are all firmly on the floor and that you cannot rock the machine at all by hand. A top loader must be 100% level or it will shake.

I have a speed queen top loader domestic washer about 15 years old. It fills with water but when it does over to the wash cycle the drum does not turn and there is then a squealing sound, then the motor...


Thane, you know I was thinking about this dilemma and one more crazy idea came to mind.. What if you simply flipped the machine upside down and with it inverted, try to rotate the drive pulley.. Maybe this would work the same as the other technique...?
Would love to know how you made out with this one.

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.

I have a 1.5 yr old Fisher Paykel ecosmart washing machine. During the past 2 loads there has been a notable water leak (significant puddling on the floor). I haven't witnessed the problem, but there is...


the play in the tub in normal, it sounds like you have an over sudsing issue, run an empty load with 3 cups of vinager in the tub, set the water temp to hot, cut way down on soap, if you use liquid dont even fill the cup 1/3 of the way, I know this sounds dumb but try it, I have one and this happened to me

Washer shakes on spin cycle


2 possible causes 1 cleanout filter and check water is pumping out properly before spinning

2 check the suspension legs at the base of the tub for wear or damage.

28+ year old- Speed Queen Heavy Duty top loader


It sound like you drain hose is siphoning off the rinse water, It needs a standpipe make sure the drain hose is at about the height of the top of the washer, Make sure the drain hose isnt stuck in the drain it also needs an air cap. the drain hose should not lay on the floor to run to the drain

Please let me know if this doesnt solve your problems
