Question about Washing Machines

1 Answer

My bauknecht washing machine is 20 years old and still works fine, except it will not shut off the water. I have to do this manually when we get to the spin cycle. It also doesn't send the water into the fabric softner compartment. Are the two connected and what part do I need to fix these problems? Thanks

ngfam1 At your service!

I threw mine in the trash and bought a Speed Queen Commercial grade washer and thats the last one I will ever by!
8 loads a week for 25 years!!!!!!!

The washers and dryers today use so much less water,electricity,and detergent that they pay for them selves after a only a few years.
My advise is, do not put good money into a washer that is 20 years old! it is cheaper to buy, run, and operate a new efficient machine! You will see you water and electric bill reduced!!!!!!!!!
Speed Queen commercial grade top loader uses only 34 gallon of water compared to the others at 48-54 gallons!
Their front load washer uses, (GET THIS) ONLY 13.9 GALLONS of water and washes in 35 minutes and the clothes are cleaner and last longer cause it uses water agitation instead of a vain to wear out your clothes! How about spinning at 750 RPM and the clothes come out so dry they are only in the dryer half the time than all the other machines! Thus half the gas or electric bill!!
All my employees have replaced their laundry pairs with Speed Queen!
My Guys call it the, "No Brainer Machine!"

I hope you can utilize the good advice I so enjoy sharing with all the good people we talk to!

    Peace friend,
    Go to in the home for the washers and dryers that I spoke of!

    Here is a letter from a Speed Queen customer !
    I just wanted to thank you for making such a great product. I
    purchased a Marathon washer and dryer in the fall of 1987. We have a
    family of 6 so your machines have been used non stop for almost 23

    Two years ago I had my first failure. I had to
    replace a gas valve in the dryer. I have not even had a belt break in
    the dryer. I am hopeful that now that we are at the stage in our lives
    that our children our leaving the nest, that the machines will last the
    rest of our lives. They owe us nothing, so anything from this point on
    is pure gravy. My wife's brother, who is 7 years younger than her has
    already gone through 3 washers, so they are now investigating Speed
    Queen. I have always raved about your reliability, and always recommend
    you to all that I know.

    Jon and Laura K.,

    Littleton, Colo

    Bless you

Hot water is coming out full strenght through hose but coming real slow into machine. It is a kenmore 110 about 20 years old and still working great except the slow hot water filling the tub.

could be your fill valve plugged up with sediment,remove your hose from the rear of unit and look at the screen inside see if it is plugged up!

Queen marathon 20 years old does not pump the

If the motor is running then the water pump or the clutch to it has failed. If the motor is not running, the motor has failed. Both fixes are probably too expensive for a 20 year old machine. Unless you are very handy and resourceful it may be time for a new machine.
