A local appliance dealer (WP/KA/MT, Friedrich window units, few lawn mowers) is shutting down after 40 years, today is the last day for the doors to be open.  I was in there early last year, noticed a Speed Queen banner of possibly late 70s vintage hanging high up on a wall (he may have handled SQ years ago but not recently).  Asked about buying it, he was non-cooperative.  Maybe I should check again.  They no longer carried any appreciable parts stock.  I asked for a WP basket drive block a few years ago, took a worn one along for reference.  The office girlie said she'd been there for 10+ years and had never seen one but could probably order it.

With that attitude, closing is no mystery.

Did you by chance inquire about their stashes of service literature?
