Speed Queen Commercial Heavy Duty model

I don't have a model number at this time, I'm at work. I will look for it when I get home. I'll send it from my home computer.

Thanks.

I'm not sure of the age, it came with the house. I'll be able to get more info after I get home. I will reply when I have the information.

Thanks.

This is probably your washer, if its leaking from the tank seals from right under the tank, its a big job

The model # XXXXX 392W

Serial # XXXXX 582B

 

I need to know if its repairable, an estimate of that cost if I hire a repairman to do the job,

and if I could fix it myself?

If it cost over $150 considering the age of the machine I will just buy a new machine.

Expert:  John replied 7 years ago.

My suggestion. Buy a new washer.

Buy ROPER by Whirlpool Its a nice cheap washer you can repair yourself

Customer: replied 7 years ago.

The cost of a new washer is not in question. I will pay for a quality product. I want something that will last and not need repair in 5 years!

My wife does 365 loads of laundry a year.....!

Does the ROPER have a great track record, or should I consider a differant machine?

Expert:  John replied 7 years ago.
The Roper Is a Whirlpool Its has the same parts as the most expensive , Just no bells. Its not a cheap washer .It should last you 15 yrs
