I recently was given the above model Speed Queen washer at scrap price due to an internal water leak. The internal parts were all provided to me free gratis  by the factory as it was very close to the warranty end period. All the new parts which included a new outer tub with seal and bearing installed were put into the machine by the local dealer. I hope to be able to use the outer tub to repair another machine but will need a new seal and bearing kit. I cannot find a parts breakdown for this machine however. Also in checking the tub I found some (2) very small radial cracks in the inner diameter metal where the seal assembly fits . I think these can be sealed using RTV as they are very small and extend outward  about 1/2 inch but am asking other techs if they have seen this before and how they repaired it. Also need assistance on the parts breakdown. HELP

I did not see it before but a small locator pin  spot welded on the underside of the outer tub to locate the seal has broken off. This pin is about 1/4" in diameter as best as I can determine and sticks up about 5/16" from the surface. Also according to the factory the root cause of the seal leakage problem is abrasion and wear on the inside of the balance ring  on the top of the tub. This unit shows that problem for about 6 or 8 inches of the ID . It is not severe but cannot be repaired.

Hi Thorning,


What did you end up doing with the washer?

New parts were installed and the unit was sold.
