Speed Queen washer water fill rate Model HA4591W
« on: August 15, 2020, 03:29:34 PM »

I have an older Speed Queen washer that I am working on that I am  curious as to how long it should take to fill for a typical wash cycle.I replaced the water valve since it had a lot of contamination in the screens I could not clean out. It still takes t l;east 10 minutes to fill even on a small load setting. Is it possible the other item in the fill line which I believe is called an anti siphon device or the spray head is clogged with or limed up causing the slow fill rate ?  Any one have suggestions ?

Recently I was able to check on the fill rate of a newer Speed Queen washer and at the lowest water level setting it took less than 5 minutes

Back flow preventer is plug up or bad NLA. Jump it out and see if it fills faster. Page 23 in service manual.

Just cut the rubber "duckbill" out of the backflow preventer
