Question about Washing Machines
How to remove Speed Queen washer motor, easy or hard?
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

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.
