Question about Speed Queen Washing Machines
Washer fills up but won't start washing. I can manually turn the knob to different functions, but the only one that works is the spin function in all three settings. The machine will not run at wash or rinse.
You could have a couple problems, it could be the timer, motor or Transmission.
Start by removing unplugging the washer,
Now remove the front panel, two 5/16" screws at the bottom of the front panel. the front panel will either drop off or you have to turn it up to remove it
In the front on the bottom is the motor, on the bottom of the motor is the belt. This belt drives the pulley on the bottom of the transmission. It should turn both directions. in one direction the transmission will ramp up and unlock the brakes letting the unit spin. The other direction the transmission will cause the agitator to turn back and forth. you may need two people one to watcht the agitator and one to turn the belt, Now if the transmission does not turn at all you have what is known as a locked transmission. This is a major expense. Look for a new machine.
If the machine does actually agitate and spin when you move the pulley it could be as simple as a motor or timer. Please let me know what you find and we can go further.
