Old Speed Queen Washer

4 posts in this topic

Working on a old Speen Queen washer model # HA5591 in my shop that has a clogged siphon break (pt#34280) wont allow water to pass thru it. I took the siphon break out and replaced it with a pvc pipe to test it and it filled properly. Is this part needed or could I leave the pvc in place? I know the new part is cheep but so is my customer.

You can keep the piece of PVC pipe in place.........It has another siphon break as it fills the tub.........( The municipality's  do not want any used water to get sucked back into the water supply system )..........

Thanks for the reply. Customer purchased this machine used many years ago and it is still running great! I love keeping the older machines out of the landfill for as long as possible

I just pulled a matching pair of COIN OP machines out of the dumpster today at the local Sears catalog store. Washer needed a belt and the dryer needed 2 rollers. I hate to think what they replaced them with!
