Providing you unplug the unit first all should go smoothly...lol. If you own a digital camera doing this job will be much simpler. Take a picture of the belt configuration, the wiring harness, and the basic motor position regarding 12:00 *** point north. Upon reassembly just look at your pix and all will go smoothely. Most important is that you drain down the tub section of the washer. To do this, take a five gallon bucket and lower the drainhose to it. There is always a reserve inside the washer to keep the pump primed. this consists of a little over a gallon of water. After you have reached the point where no more water comes from the hose tip the machine onto a small piece of carpet or a doormat to prevent scatching and grab a mop for any residual water that may escape. Remove any mounting bolts that secure the motor and it should slide out of the transmission. Some machines use a coupler which should be photographed.to allow ease of reassembly. Reverse what you've read(except for the water...lol) to reassemble the machine. Good luck, Dana

Generic comment:

My friend, you cannot say 'easy' and 'remove a washer motor' in the same breath. It is not impossible, but neither is it EASY. First you have to get the stuff off the top of the machine then pull it out ... then spray water all over you as you disconnet the hoses - remember to turn them off. Then there are the screws --- best removed with a nut driver ... probably 5/16 ... forget a regular screw driver. When you get the back off, now the fun begins. Stand on your head and try to find how it mounts. Some are on a bracket some are solid mounted with an idler.

If you have all the CORRECT parts and the CORRECT tools and a supply of band aids, Id say you should expect to spend most of a Saturday on this project.

It is not my intention to disuade you from this ... but rather to offer some insight to the task at hand and bring a smile to your face.

Good luck with your project.

I NEED TO REPLACE THE BELT ON A SPEED QUEEN TOP LOADER,HOW DO YOU TAKE OFF THE PLASTIC WHITE WATER PUMP HOUSING TO BET TO THE BELT?


You have to remove the entire motor/pump assembly. Two screws in the front, and two on the rear of the metal mount bracket. There are 3 screws holding the pump on you can get to once it is removed.

My speed queen washer made a high pitch noise when spinning. i took the front off and saw the belt was almost cut in half. how do i replace it?


Easy,It just slips over the fluid drive after disconnecting the link to the spin solenoid, then on to the pump pulley.
Adjustment is made by the motor mount.adjustment bolt.
Good luck.

I need to fit a new v-belt to my top loader speed queen. Ho do I get the belt over the motor pulley?


If it has the pump on the bottom of the motor, you have to remove that first. There is either (3) T25 screws holding it on, or 3 clips.

I always replace the pump when I do the belt.

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.
