You can still buy a new direct drive
« on: April 19, 2013, 10:06:34 AM »
Thats right. You read it correctly. Unfortunately it will cost you $800. I installed a new commercial set this week. Couldn't hardly wait for Lowes to deliver it so I could look underneath and see if that familiar transmission was still there. It was. Ever since the VMW came out, I was thinking that they couldn't sell that as a commercial washer. I imagine one day the coin ops will only be available as a front loader.

When did they changed the seal and bearing on a Speed Queen ? It is twice the labor to repair now. 2 hours is my average labor now. Great machine but can you justify that repair on a 4 year old washer? The only way it is worth doing is on a coin op. Miss the Maytag and the direct drive.
