RingwoodLive: Thanks for this ! My wife was so fed up with the performance of this new machine and this tweak really made a big improvement. If you have ANY ideas on how to get around the idiotic "internal lint filter" design they all seem to have moved to? We had SO MUCH BETTER performance from our old washer with the agitator mounted lint trap you could clean between each load.
HowsaBowsaYowsa: I bought the AWN432 mechanical controls a month ago and because of this video I was confident in being able to adjust my water level....thanks so much....my machine looks slightly different than yours when I removed the top parts but it is basically the same. I think I had to turn the little screw about one rotation only to get the Ex-large setting to fill to just above the top row of holes. I also defeated the operating mechanism by clamping the metal tab on the back based on another video I watched.
basil1026: Thank you for the demonstration! Got my new washer a couple months ago. How were you able to keep the water running while the lid was open?
Damaris Vazquez: Do you know if all the knob washer models has the reset on the water level knob specially the model AWN432SP113TW04 ?
Anita Langley: Can you also fix a speed queen with electronic controls?
mra57: Ta-daaahh! Success! Unplug. My new AWN432... has two flat head screws, take off metal piece, followed by three 1/4" hex screws, pulling control panel? forward. The adjust knob was small, more like 3/16" or 1/8". Using a crescent wrench seemed to work best. At first, pulling the timer knob started the water automatically (after plugging back in), but after more than one turn, I needed to push to the reset position before more water came out. One 360 degree turn equaled one level of holes higher, but start with less as your mileage may vary. Thank you alitak!
alitak: I was referring to the competition, I should've clarified that! :-) I think all the speed Queens are regular transmissions not direct drive, but you'd want to refer to the manufacturers specifications sheets.
Connie Krandall: Looking to purchase this washer. Do you know if we can adjust the water level on the electronic panel? or only the dial panel?
bran nips420: I am thinking of buying a Speed Queen but I wanted the one with the electronic buttons instead of the dials. Would I be able to fix the water level on this type? It does not have a reset button. AWNE82SP
Miller Sharona: Wow thanks for the video. Been trying to figure out what I could do other than stand there holding the reset knob. I just love YouTube!
Janice Fox: I have a twenty something year old Montgomery Ward washer and this is just what I needed. Thank you so much. I now have a full tub without having to hold the valve over to reset...takes a lot of time to do that. Blessings.
hawknives: Exactly what I was searching for! Thank you! You said "for Gods Sake" God Bless you man! For those that do not know. Seek the TRUTH and HE will set you Free! HIS Name is Jesus Christ!
Mike A: I think their customer service is great. You have to ask for TECHNICAL service - those guys are great. Told him I didn't like the way the way the Signal Knob was working and they sent me a new part out, had it in two days.
yogitunes: this is an informative and quick fix......can be done as described in less than ten minutes, once done, it will fill to that level for all loads......just viewing so many videos of this, which are helpful, but if you have to ask so many questions, and are not mechanically inclined, this may be something you should NOT get into.....this is not rocket science, its a simple adjustment.....open the unit, turn the screw, check your level, close the machine, DONE!!!......and you should not have to be told to unplug the machine, that's common sense.....
Zuni Harper: I noticed they all are 3.3 cu ft washtub, but they have different amounts of water, 20 gal, 24 gal and 31 gal. Does this mean they all can be safely changed to say 28? The motor size is all the 1/2 hp, so heavier amount of water, it will go out sooner, right?
Michael Green: Alitak: do I need to have a full batch of clothing inside the machine when I do this procedure, so that it won't overflow when i do have a full load of clothes?
Steven Pregozen: Sir,
A few of questions for you:
1. Can the adjustment be made with the machine off? I only ask because another video shows the adjustment being made when the machine is on. I assuming this is done for convenience purposes (not plugging in/out to see new water level)
2. Does the machine need to be filled with water at the extra large level when making the adjustment or is it sufficient to have the selector at the extra large level with the machine unplugged?
3. Do you need to select reset after each screw turn?
4. Are the other water levels affected (mini, small, medium)? That is since the extra large level is higher are the smaller levels bumped up?
Thank you for your time and effort!!
Rivergull: Why do you have to take the header off? I just watched another SQ youtube video (by either Ted Walker or Rocking Dustpan) where, to add more water to the tub, you just twist one of the knobs (holding it in place until the water reaches the level you want). Does your model not have that?
Mary Carpenter: Alitak: Do you know how to do this for the 2014 front loader (AFN50R)? We took the top off and it looks nothing like your top loader inside--just a lot of wires. If you can help, we would be grateful. It's the only drawback to my machine. Thanks!
Charles Wright: Great tip thnx. I just turned mine 1 1/2 turns and was good to go
