Speed Queen is a longtime trusted source for washers and dryers for homeowners, laundry facilities and multiple-family housing units. After some time, your washer may begin to leak during wash cycles, potentially damaging flooring and requiring constant cleanup. Get to the root of the problem with some simple home repairs and washer part replacements to get your Speed Queen washer working like new again.
If the fill hoses are not securely fastened to the faucet and the washer, they may leak at the connections as water fills the machine. Pull the washer away from the wall, and tighten the connections. Also inspect for tears or cracks, as these washer parts wear out over time and need to be replaced at least once every five years.
Before seeking professional washer repair help, ensure you are washing appropriate load sizes for your washer. If the water is leaking from around the lid, overfilling may be the culprit. If suds accompany the leak, you may be using too much detergent for your wash load. Reduce the amount of detergent or the size of the load to prevent future leaks.
If the water is unable to exit the machine, it may overfill and begin leaking. Disconnect the drain hose, and empty the remaining water before checking for blockages. Use a thin pipe to remove the clog, and reconnect the hose.
