Answer Dave, Did you also check, clean and lubricate the idler pulley and assembly, and adjust the idler spring tension ? You'll also need to remove and check the brake pads R0000014 for cracks, warpage or excessive wear, indicating the brake pulley R9900474 may be "dragging" due to worn out "fingers" on the plate, or worn washers between the drive pulley 40047102 and brake pulley.
I have an old speedqueen washing machine that does not spin out anymore. it will start to but then the motor gets hot an shuts down. About a minute later it does it again. This cycle continues indefinatly. Any suggestions? Thanks.
Answer Jbob,You're most likely correct, a weak or faulty motor winding, but First check and make sure there is nothing stuck between the tubs or tub cover. Check and make sure the voltage at the outlet maintains at least 105-108 VAC, when the motor starts in the spin cycle, low voltage will stall and cause the motor to smoke and not run. Presumably you've already checked the belt, and idler pulley assembly, as well. If the washer fills and agitates, and the other checks are proper, suspect the timer as the culprit.
