Speed Queen Washing Machines - Recent Questions, Troubleshooting & Support

2018 Speed Queens did not have lid locks. The 2019 machines do. The lid lock can not be disabled. If the lid is stuck closed, you can, with 30 pounds of pressure, raise the lid without damaging the lock. (unlike any other machine on the market)

Change out the water valve. The water valve is what the water hoses are hooked up to on the rear of the machine. This is a pretty easy replacement. The new one goes on like the old one comes off. Turn the water off and disconnect the water hoses from the back of the machine. Sometimes there is one hex head that is removed and the valve tips out for replacement. Depends on the year and model.

Around the white plastic rim right above the steel tub, link gets caught. I have only been able to remove it with my fingers every week or so and this seems to stop the "spotting/striping" of stains on my cloths. I would also like to know the RIGHT answer to this one. Thanks
