Speed Queen top loader leaks from top of tub at large load spin c
Our Speed Queen top loader washing machine leaks from top of tub when a large load goes into the spin cycle. I can see water leaking from around the silver clips that hold the plastic top ring to the black metal outer tub. There is a seal between the plastic top ring and the tub, and no water leaks from that seal. Water also splashes from the top of that plastic as the tub oscillates in the spin cycle

:) 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 .. :)
Are you using front loader only detergent?(oversudsing) Overfilling is either a pressure switch, or pressure chamber is blocked(located toward underside of outer bowl approx 6 inches long) this is only in older machines with extensive cold washes.
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.
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
