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

He tub will not spin


If you hear the motor running, then possibly the brake is not releasing.

These models have brake issues, typically which start with a screech when the spin stops, and often wet and/or smelly washer issues due to poor spin speed.

Most likely either part of the brake release mechanism is jamme, the thrust bearing is bad, or the reversing switch.
