Speed queen top load washer does not agitate properly

Speed queen top load washer only goes counter-clockwise during agitate cycle so it essentially just spins. Has a little bit of slow and back to clockwise, but not much.

    I did some further investigating on the washer. I found that if I secure the tub during the agitate cycle, the agitation appears to work fine. My limited knowledge would led me to think the brakes need to be replaced. Is there something that would "apply" the brakes or could the pads just be that worn? Another bit of information -- my wife has commented that the washer takes a long time to stop spinning after being turned off (end of load, lid lifted).

You need to see if the motor turns one direction during wash and the other during the spin. If so, your gearbox is faulty and needs replacement. If motor only goes in one direction at all times, then very possible, the timer is faulty.

How do I remove the agitator on a speed queen washer model # aws17nw


It has a large nut under the cap on the top of the agitator, but it will be the devil to remove due to a tight fit and corrosion.

When the spin cycle begins the washer vibirates and moves on the floor. After the spin cycle reaches the maxium speed it stops. The springs are fine, but what else could be wrong?


The machine is probably not leveled properly. To level the machine, partly fill it with water. Make sure that the drum is standing in the middle of the machine and then adjust the machine until the water is at the same level all around at the nearest set of holes to the water. Check that the drum is still in the center of the outer drum. Make sure that the adjusting feet are all firmly on the floor and that you cannot rock the machine at all by hand. A top loader must be 100% level or it will shake.

My GE Wizard Washer will agitate or spin for a very short time.


replace the transmission. this job is better done after a few dozen bottle of your favorite whiskey. Check the timer controls to ensure timer is advancing properly. tranny's are notorious on ge's for this sort of problem as well as inner basket drive blocks coming loose. ge makes alot of great appliances, this just happens to be one of them that isn't. i trust their jet engines too, although hard to work on them from 30,000ft.

At start of spin cycle water splashes over top and runs down.


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.

Locked up agitator,


If your agitator is a 2 piece, it has a rachet action and turns free counter clockwise and locks to the bottom piece when turning counter clockwise.
The transmission disengages the agitator when it is in the spin mode. If you put the washer in the spin cycle the agitator should free up.
If the washer is spining ok and the agitator is not turning free you have a transmission problem.

Everything is working except the spin cycle


Sounds like the spin coil/brake solenoid is burnt out or broken. This is a coil situated on the motor plate under the machine with a lever attatched to it. When the machine goes into spin cycle, this solenoid pulls the brake away from the outer drum to allow the drum and agitator to spin together. The shaft that goes into this coil should move in and out freely. If tight, replace spin coil/brake solenoid.
