My filter container likes to bind when I am changing the filter. I smear the threads with pipe dope and it comes apart better.... tightens better too.
Awesome video. Wish I was this brave. Just spent 900 on a Speed Queen washer....

That's the exact model of washer that I've had for many years and have had to work on it 2 times. The way I found out was YouTube. A quick check would have made it much easier with no damage.

Spin down filters are the best of both worlds. Theyre clear so you can see when theyre gunky, and you just turn a valve at the bottom to purge em, no replacing the filter, removing anything, etc.

I like the clear filter as well.. One of my Motorcycle has a clear battery too, 6 volt. I love that thing cuz you can always tell when the electrolyte is low.

You need a water filtration and purification system from the well, they can design a system that can solve all of your problems. I bought one and have had no problems with well water in 20 years!

They didn't design the washer correctly. I am not going to read instructions on how to do something, it should be obvious.

I use two, first is rust & sediment and second, taste and odor in line with clear canisters. However it will decrease your water flow a little depending same time use.

You didn't spray paint the washer, Andrew! 😲😨 Thought this was sorta of a standard part of equipment repair! 😜😄 Two wells! WOW, that is sure smart! Never have to worry about being without I'm sure you have several generators to run the pump(s). Installing the filter was brilliant! 👍👊

This is a video of how not to fix/break your washer, the washer is
supposed to be open true the front, there are many videos here in you tube on how to open your washer, I really smile looking this guy, he has the tools and energy but he need something else, my advise, dont do it in the same way you are braking the washer

Should have turned it to spin to empty water first.
DADoESofTX - 6 måneder siden
OMG this fellow is an idiot. I don't have time to read through all the comments to see if anyone else brought up the fact .... that is NOT how to disassemble that machine. The back panel IS NOT SUPPOSED TO COME OFF. The entire *outer cabinet*, top and lid comes off from the FRONT. The spring clip he tossed away holds the cabinet to the rear panel (there's another clip on the other side that didn't come loose). The water flume attaches to the rear panel, he broke it loose and stuffing it up there from the front won't properly attach it, it's danging loose in there and will knock around all over the place when the tub oscillates during spin, ending up spraying again in the wrong direction. Along with whatever else is broken.

After I've undone 50 screws and the back still won't come off, that's the point when I revert to Andrew's more direct approach at 3:11.

Having fought with many a washer and dryer, I actually appreciate the "excavation" model of disassembly! They hide every fastener (back and front) and make it impossible to figure out depending on the model... I'm going with this technique in the future and just buy a case of self tapping metal screws to put it all back together! Thanks for the vid!

You need to put a 5 micron whole house filter on your input line of the house. Flush your lines through the bath tub faucet (no screen to plug). Once you do all that, go buy a new washing machine! LOL

Do a little research on repairing a top load washing machine. It will save you a lot of frustration, and you won't be breaking things to disassemble it.

Washing machines are designed to be repaired and serviced from the front. That way you don't have to pull them out from the wall, except to unplug and disconnect. If you go about it in the right order it can be done without wrecking the machine.
