Speed Queen Clothes Washer Water Level Problem And How To Fix It




What do you think about this video?

jam12588: As a appliance repairman for over 40 years i can tell you do not do this because it is not necessary. if you think you need a little more water which most of the time you don't you just hold the reset until the water level reaches your desired level. plus changing this setting by adjusting this factory set screw can cause your washer to overflow under certain load conditions as i have seen happen more than once.

E Gold: I would read directions on the comforter you are trying to clean. Queen size comforters are not recommended for any toploader. Best professionally cleaned.

Snoo Lee: You're directions on the screw setting are incoherent and not specific.

bt1940 bt1940: Thanks for showing how to adjust it... but I am very concerned about the extra gallons of water that you add, and the extra weight effect on the Belt(s)... I broke the outside knob which controls the water level, and I couldn't find that parts ID/reference to order a new one (it is a special knob different from the others on the Washer and Dryer... it has a metal wire inside)... My washer is the same : AWN432 SP111 TW01 , and I really appreciate it if you happen to know what that part SKU is... broke (cracked the knob housing) when it was forced beyond its stop. 9-20-2016

1949sorful: How do you replace the drain hose on a speed queen top load model awn412sp111two1, it is similar  to your model that you used to fix the water level problem.thanks  if you could  show how it is done.

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?

Build a burger: 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!

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?
