Speed Queen top load washer model AWM 472W2 with s/n 9604021989
« on: November 10, 2019, 03:16:21 PM »

 I was just given this washer for possible repair .It has a significant knock internally( ?) when it starts into the wash cycle. I have checked under the tub and cannot find any broken springs or other damaged items except the belt is  in bad condition and has a torn section that may be flapping  against the  motor support legs as it rotates. If I advance it to the rinse section the noise is diminshed considerably. Is there any other area I should be looking at in addition to the belt ? No leaks of water or oil are evident. Need help ASAP.

I replaced the belt and the problem is cured. The belt was only in one piece by a few threads. Belt p/n is WP28808
