Question about Speed Queen AWS52NW Top Load Washer

2 Answers

Kelvinator or (Speed Queen Top Load washing machine)

We have replaced the belt on this machine because the technician said it needed replacing, but now the machine stops ans starts taking forever to complete the spin cycle. It is as if there is a cutout switch, when it starts again you hear a quite loud click, then the machine will spin for just a few seconds and then stop.

I have a Speed Queen AWM373W top loader with the same problem. We recently had the kit and belt replaced because it was leaking water. That is fixed now but it takes forever. The other night I tutned the drum by hand and it worked fine. Did not had the same problem since but I am watching it.

You probably have the wrong belt, and its to small? Go to or google Kelvinator parts. Order the correct belt.

Will not spin fast, when it spins you can rase lidmby pass door switch and stop itfrom spinning

  • The motor coupler may be broken. Many Whirlpool®-manufactured washers use a small, relatively inexpensive motor coupling. It's plastic and rubber and is mounted to the shaft of the motor on one side, and to the transmission on the other. Over time, the coupler wears out and fails. You may need to replace it.

  • A belt may be broken. Many washing machines have one or two belts. If a belt is broken or badly worn, you need to replace it with a genuine belt from the manufacturer. (Some washing machine belts are designed with special characteristics not found in automotive belts.)

  • The clutch may be worn. If your washer is a GE, it may use a clutch to come up to the proper spin speed. As the clutch wears out, it may prevent the unit from spinning well or at all. If the clutch is worn, you need to replace it. For this job, you probably want to hire a qualified appliance repair technician.

  • The drive motor may be defective. Many washer brands use a reversing motor. For agitation the motor runs in one direction, for spinning and draining, the other. It's possible for a motor to burn out in one direction and continue to operate in the other. If this happens, you need to replace the entire motor.

  • The transmission may not be shifting properly. Older washers produced by Whirlpool® have a transmission with an electro-mechanical shifter. If the shifter becomes even partially defective, the unit may drain the water but not spin. This is a complex system, if your washer has a shifter problem, you may want to hire a qualified appliance repair technician to repair it.

  • The spin bearing or basket drive may be worn or seized. These components allow the inner tub to spin freely inside the outer tub. When this is the problem, you usually hear a loud sound during the spin cycle. Call a qualified appliance repair technician.

    Good Afternoon Shae, thanks for your post!

    From what the information you have provided your Frigidaire washer will start, then stop and take a long time to resume the cycle. It sounds like you could have an issue with your control panel, door latch, or sensor. Since it could be anyone of these underlying issues I would suggest contacting a professional technician for a proper diagnosis and repair. This will help you avoid any unnecessary part purchases. Hopefully this information is helpful. -Matt

    Why did Craftsman LT2000 stopped moving? Engine starts and blade engages fine.

    The transmission drive belt is a separate one from the blade belt. The clutch pedal when released puts tension on the transmission drive belt so it tightens up and drives the gearbox pulley by way of a large spring. Make sure the spring is ok. The belts don't last forever and probably needs replacing looking at the age of the machine. That is a fun job as it is right up under the machine and runs from the engine pulley right back to the top of the transmission. You have to drop the deck right off and I usually find a tree with a large branch and haul the front up with a rope or winch so the mower is vertical. Makes it easier to work on. Drain petrol first though. Hope this helps otherwise get a mower shop to do it for you if you feel it's to much of a task. Good luck.

    First check the drive belts for wear and replace them if necessary. It is important that the belts have neither too little nor too much grip. If they are fine,then check the bearings of the motor and the drum. Lastly check the motor, it may need to be replaced.
