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

Hi, The washing machine that I have has stopped working during a washing cycle and refuses to come back on. This was during a large wash cycle.

first place we start is checking the lid switch to make sure its working slowly lift tub lid lower slow and you should here a click if not its snapped if yes have it checked to see if blown. appart from that it would be an internal fault the capacitors in these machines dont last too long

Squeaking washing Machine during spin cycle

Loks that your machine is pretty old and hence the belt has hardened making a squeaking noise.
Good fix is get a new drive belt.
Quick fix is you could put some oil on the drive belt..... it will work for now but not a permenant solution.

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.
