Title: Speed Queen Top Load Washer - Model #AWN412SP111TW01
Post by: cseitz71690 on July 19, 2021, 09:40:40 AM
Hello,

So I have a nice speed queen washer that is now making a very loud firecracker kind of sound during the spin cycle. Also when I open the lid during the spin cycle, it is spinning very slowly which I'm sure is why the clothes are soaking wet when the cycle finishes.

Does anyone know the reasoning behind this issue and what I would need to purchase in order to repair this? Thanks in advance for all of your help!

***I am currently working on uploading the short video clip I have of the loud sound.***

I am unsure how to edit the above post but I am unable to post the video since it is larger than 5000k. It is only a 6 second video so I am not sure why it will not attach. Sorry guys, I figured a video would be much more helpful to diagnose this issue. :(

If you have not already done so, You need to dismantle the dryer starting with the wash basket .  This is not an easy job and takes a few special  tools.  another possibility is to remove the belt and the pump  and check for damage . It sounds like the problem is in the brake rotor area but this is just a guess. Be prepared for some expensive repair cost.

there is video on U tube showing how to dismantle  this unit

Hi Thorning,

Thanks for your help! I plan on repairing this myself so I am hoping to locate the exact problem. Once I tear it apart I will post back here and keep you updated. I just want to make sure I am ordering the correct parts based on the diagnosis. :)
