We have owned expensive LG front load and numerous top load washers and dryers over the years. I read several negative reviews of the 2018 Speed Queen washers and dryers, following its redesign. Made in America means a lot to me, this along with the 5-year parts and labor warranty is the reason we decided to pay up for the Speed Queen 5000 series washer and dryer and give them a try. We decided to purchase this model because it has 6 cleaning cycles and easy to use knobs vs. the push button control board. We are very pleased with the performance of our new appliances. The washer is quiet, and exceeded our expectations in cleaning our clothes. Every load has came out clean and smells nice. I believe this is the result of adequate water usage and Speed Queens design to push water along with the cleaning agent through the cloths. The only con I see with the washer is it has a safety lock while in use that requires you to pause the cycle to add items to your wash. The dryer is efficient, my clothes are usually dry in 35 minutes.
The Speed Queen was an excellent machine. I never had any problem with it and it cleaned the clothes completely. I liked that it had different levels to choose from. From light to heavy duty. My beddings were cleaned safely. The dryer worked well and dried my clothes quickly which was great for me. I always like to finish with my laundry as fast as possible. I was completely satisfy. The clothes came out great, not too much wrinkles. The dryer did its job and would consider using it again in the future or even buying one for my personal use. For what I needed the Speed Queen delivered. All and all great features.
Best Washer I have ever owned. Washes in 30 min. You can open the lid without pausing the washer. It does not lock!! YAY!! High end in pricing but worth every dime, great warranty. Covers everything. Heavy Duty! These are the kind of washers in laundromat so you know they are durable.
I can choose the amount of water I need for the size of laundry Iâ€™m washing. It cleans a very large or a small delicate load equally! It is quiet and very user friendly. And best of all, itâ€™s faster than the average washer even when I use the twice rinse cycle.
I really donâ€™t want to give this rating a star but I had to select at least one. My one star is under duress. This machine doesnâ€™t even deserve one star. I bought a top load Speed Queen washing machine a year ago and used the â€śecoâ€ť setting which didnâ€™t rinse the soap out of my clothes and I developed a terrible skin rash that I had to treat with **. The customer service rep at Speed Queen said the â€śecoâ€ť setting is to comply with government regulations and I should not use it and I should always use the â€śauto fillâ€ť. My clothes never were clean, in fact they became dingy. The biggest test of all was that none of my dog toys ever came out clean, they came out with the same dirt they had when I put them in the washer. I called customer service at Speed Queen 3 times to discuss the machines disappointing performance... â€śDonâ€™t use eco settingâ€ť. â€śSmall loads wonâ€™t get clean if thereâ€™s not enough clothes in themâ€ť. â€śThe machine is designed so that the clothes rubbing against each other will cleanâ€ť. In the end after a year of frustration I bought an Electrolux and my clothes are clean again.
I purchased a Speed Queen washer and dryer set costing $1500. Reviews were great and thats how I made my choice. After installing the dryer, it never worked - would shut off after 3 minutes. After calls to the retailer and to Speed Queen, I was given, by Speed Queen, the names of 4 service technicians to call to service the dryer, all of whom refused. Speed Queen referred me back to the retailer and said to tell the retailer to contact their distributor. The distributor said they do not offer repair service. The retailer replaced the dryer. New dryer works great. I used the washer 4 times. The 4th time it would not agitate, spin or empty the water. I had to wring out the load of laundry by hand and suck the standing water out with a shop vac, taking about 12 trips to empty it. I am 67 years old-this was not pleasant.Again Speed Queen was contacted, this time by the retailer. Again SQ customer service referred the retailer to the same service technicians who again refused once they found out I live outside their city. Again SQ told the retailer. It would not authorize replacement and honor the SQ warranty which accompanied my washer and dryer. Why is a manufacturers warranty not the responsibility of the manufacturer? $1500 and at this point all I have is a working dryer. This is going all over social media if Speed Queen fails to come through and honor the warranty on this product. This is extremely poor customer service.
Agitator is too slow - doesnt clean clothes. Not enough depth on the fins on agitator to move back and forth either. Spin cycle is too slow - some clothes are dripping wet and other clothes are too wet to put in dryer. I thought with a tall agitator, it would move back and forth quickly to actually get a clean wash. Some of my clothes have residue left.
The Speed Queen is built to last, and doesnâ€™t have all the options that you never use. The machine does a great job washing your clothes and spin drying them. Itâ€™s top loading and has a agitator which I like very much.
Purchased the new 2018 TR7 Speed Queen Top Load Washing Machine after reading rave reviews on the Speed Queen washers. Unfortunately, Speed Queen changed the agitation mechanics of the 2018 models and this machine does a terrible job of washing clothes. It does not remove dirt or stains no matter what cycle you run it on. Ive tried everything to get my clothes clean and bright but after 2 1/2 months of trying, I gave up. The local dealer told me I had to get resolution with Speed Queen. Speed Queen told me I had to get resolution with the local Dealer. I sent pictures, made phone calls to SQ and the dealer, multiple trips to the dealer, comments on SQ Facebook and website etc. Working with the local dealer didnt get me any suitable resolution until I suggested that I would call the BBB and local TV station. Finally, SQ and the dealer got together and they decided to give me a full refund and take back the machine. Warning to anyone planning to buy the 2018 Models of Speed Queen...buy something else.
Updated on 11/05/2020: Three years ago I wrote a comment on this review page about my experience with Speed Queen washers. At that time my Speed Queen was 28 years old and had never had a repair. Its 31 years old now and is still working beautifully. No repairs yet. Id purchased it new in 1989 after having such a good experience with my previous machine which lasted seventeen years of heavy use and was god-knows-how-old when I paid $30.00 for it. I have no idea how good new Speed Queen machines are but Im certainly able to vouch for the older models.Original Review: I checked this site to see if the newer model Speed Queens are as good as the old ones. Kind of mixed reviews here so Im not sure what to think. Im not really in the market for a new washing machine -- the one I have now is absolutely fine and has never had a repair -- but you never know whats in the future. My current machine is 28 years old. My kids are out of the house now so it isnt used daily anymore but I still run it four times a week. Since they took phosphates out of laundry detergent I do notice a lower level of cleaning, but thats certainly not my washing machines fault. My previous machine was also a Speed Queen. I bought it used from a neighbor -- had no idea of its age -- and it ran seventeen years. And I was doing multiple loads in those days! So are the new ones as good? I doubt it. Hope I dont have to find out for a while!
I recently was given an almost new Speed Queen electric dryer that was discarded due to a problem that was going to cost over $400 to repair. The problem was definitely a factory defect. The problem involved the factory leaving a component out when it was assembled. This model ADEE8RGS173TW01 was repaired by me using new parts and now works properly... I have an older Speed Queen washer and gas dryer in my house and they work great but this factory defect situation on an almost new unit makes me wonder if the factory has the proper QC in place to make sure new units will indeed last a long time. I work on washers and dryers daily and I have seen the good, the bad, and the ugly. Hope they correct this type of problem...
My Speed Queen washer is a replacement for a Maytag Neptune that I had for many years. I am very pleased with the performance and especially the amount of water it uses during a cycle. It gets the clothes just as clean using about 1/2 the water, very important as we have well water. It is not as pretty as the Neptune was, but thats extremely low on my list of requirements.
I wanted a good reliable washing machine, like the good old days! It didnâ€™t matter about looks, or fancy stuff, I needed a workhorse that would clean clothes with heavy usage. I couldnâ€™t take a chance. Speed Queen is the brand used in laundromats. I got a Speed Queen, and couldnâ€™t be happier!
We purchased a Speed Queen Stacked Washer Dryer for our business. It is not the first one we purchase this item since we have different locations and until now we hadnt have any issues. This time, 6 weeks after we installed it, the dryer electric panel stop working. Our installer checked it and found out that the panel was defective and need to be replaced; the cost of the new part was covered by the Brand but I need to pay the labor. I contacted Speed Queen and ask them to refund the labor needed to replace a defective part that was supposed to be working for years and just after 6 weeks malfunctioned. I was told that their policy was set and they couldnt cover the labor cost. Well, this has been my last purchase of any Speed Queen product. There is a clear difference between servicing a used dryer and fixing a defective (from origin) product.
Spent a lot of time researching a new gas dryer as I discovered that Samsung & LG are not considered great buys with the service calls that ensue. As a previous Samsung owner I was particularly concerned about quality. Found that Speed Queen had a pretty good reputation, was made in the US (Wisconsin) & had options of 3, 5 or 7 year warranties depending on the model. Chose the 7 year model & was very excited to try my new dryer. It stopped working on day 1. The sensor settings would not work. Called for service & was referred to one of their service companies, they came & assessed the dryer, it needed 4 parts, a board, a thermostat & two sensors. I was told the dryer would work just fine on regular settings until the parts came in. That was not true. A week later it stopped working on any setting. Called the servicer & Speed Queen, another service call, another part, the ignitor was bad. Here is the part that is truly sad. Speed Queen customer service has still not managed to get a manager from their company to give me a call. They are rude, absolutely indifferent to how poorly this looks for their brand. I see no pride in their company name & no effort to attempt to make a customer happy. Its like you are bothering them. I can accept defects, indifference is not acceptable on a 2 day old dryer regardless of the warranty. They could not even be bothered to get the correct parts to the repair team. Im truly disappointed & disgusted at their customer service teams attitude & their management teams inability to actually manage. If you manage by hiding behind your customer service team, you should not be a manager.
Bought a Speed Queen washer in 2013. Just recently started making noise. Called in repairman who found that a bolt had broken causing other damage to the tune of $800. Contacted Speed Queen, and Andrea in Customer Support said sorry, out of warranty, nothing we can do. So, when their website claims they can last for 25 years, Im not sure I believe that. I would think a good quality bolt would last a long time.
Funcionamiento silencioso, limpia bien, hace funcionar una carga media en unos 30 minutos. El centrifugado es especialmente eficaz, por lo que el tiempo de secado es menor que el de nuestra antigua Whirlpool. Tiene un agitador vertical, una caracterĂstica que querĂamos. Como Speed Queen ha eliminado la transmisiĂłn, el agitador es fijo y el tambor se mueve para hacer girar la ropa por el agua. Funciona con un suave sonido de silbido en lugar del antiguo sonido de golpeteo. Hasta ahora, ha funcionado bien. Nuestra mĂˇquina tiene controles analĂłgicos, no el panel de control digital. Todos los controles estĂˇn marcados de forma comprensible y son fĂˇciles de usar. A mi mujer le gustan los ciclos de lavado delicado y a mano, algo que nuestra antigua mĂˇquina no tenĂa.
I know a lot of people start by saying this but, I RARELY write reviews. Good or bad. After becoming frustrated with our Whirlpool Cabrio washers lack of cleaning ability I took the advice of our repairman and purchased a SET of Speed Queens washer and dryer. That was less than 8 months ago. Didnt even NEED the dryer but hey Get the matching set. Speed Queen has always had an impeccable reputation for quality and reliability. Short story about the washer- Speed Queen washer does average to poor at cleaning on any temperature. Control knobs are basic and there is no way of telling how long your cycle will take. I mean NONE. Long story on the dryer- After just a few weeks the dryer knob was not lining up correctly with the corresponding cycle and it was taking a minimum of 2 full cycles to dry most anything. I was literally guessing where I was in a cycle and hoping for the best. The dials are all made of cheap plastic (unlike their older, more reliable models) I have now had the same knob, timer and other parts replaced FOUR TIMES. The last time was one week ago and it has already happened again! FIVE TIMES in 8 months. I am beyond frustrated. Hence my review. I called the only number I can find for Speed Queen that seems to relate to customer service. I was told that to get a replacement machine I had to go to the dealer and not through Speed Queen. No one wants to take responsibility for an obviously defective machine.
I bought my Speed Queen Washer and Dryer (TR5) in August 1919 and Iâ€™m not happy with them! The day they were installed and I was told they were ready to use as they walked out the door, I did a load of laundry and found the control panel loose so I called and said I needed repair to come fix it. Then I threw in the very first load into the dryer and started it up and wow, what a racket it made! So I called service back and told them they needed to repair the dryer too. When service showed up two weeks later, they tried to tell me that the loose control panel was normal! Well, itâ€™s not and amazingly it was fixed! The support rollers and Idler Arm Assembly had to be replaced on the dryer. I had them back to repair the washer last winter, but I donâ€™t remember why. So repair was back again today for my washer that started to walk all over the floor. I was told that it was built up dust! Very little was cleaned out from under the machine!I was told to clean the feet, I needed to push back on that heavy machine to raise it and then put a block under it so I could clean it! Really, I am expected to raise that heavy machine and keep the dust cleaned out from under the feet? As heavy as that machine is, I want to know how dust can vent get under the feet! I am so disappointed in the quality of this expensive Speed Queen Washer and Dryer!
I live in a remote area and have difficulty getting service personnel to come to my location. After reading so many reviews of computer boards failing, mold problems with front loaders, and front loaders failing to clean, I knew I wanted a RELIABLE washer that CLEANED. Speed Queens have an excellent reliability record. Although my washer is only 3 years old and maybe old school with no digital computer boards, it does a great job cleaning.
I purchased a Speed Queen washer 1 year ago. What a disappointment. US made, 3 year parts & labor warranty. Dont fall for it as I did. Have had nothing but problems with this machine since day one. It washes fine but the fabric softener does not dispense properly, is all over the clothes once the cycle has completed. Have been in touch with Alliance which is the warranty service and we have tried several things to correct the issue, such as cleaning the dispenser even though clean, running extra rinse with every wash, avoiding the normal wash cycle, technician came out was not helpful or friendly nor fixed the problem. Have been told by several individuals at Alliance not to use Downy fabric softener. So I have diluted my downy until is it like water and I am still having issues. So I have a washer that I cannot use the normal cycle and I cannot use downy. Also, due to my rural location, they do not have any technicians in my area to fix. I have requested a refund but they refuse. DO NOT BUY SPEED QUEEN.
I love my washer Model # AWN412SP111TW01. It washes great and it is much better than the ones with all the fancy technology features on them. This washer operates more like the washers I used to have and it washes in an appropriate length of time. I love the fact that this washer does not have the feature that locks your lid when you start your wash. My washer is more like the way washers used to be built years ago and not just some fancy technology that quits working right after your warranty goes out. The only thing that could be improved is that the water could be spun out a little more so that the clothes are not quite as damp when the wash cycle is over. This isnt really a problem but just a preference for me.
My husband and I have been trying to get our dryer fixed for 2 months now. Every time I call Speed Queen to get an update, they tell me the part needed is on back order. It has been two months and this situation has forced us to spend lots of unbudgeted money at the laundromat. Speed Queen hasnt tried to offer us any alternatives to our situation. Our washer also had an issue when our dryer stopped heating, as well. It wasnt dispensing fabric softener into our laundry and kept it retained in the area it was poured into. I was able to find someone to fix it rather quickly.These appliances came with a seven year warranty, so I submitted a claim to be reimbursed for the repair on the washer several weeks ago. I have received nothing to date. We have only owned this set for two years. That is SAD, given Speed Queens reputation of having good quality, long-lasting products. This is why we purchased this brand in the first place, but are obviously extremely disappointed that the standards they advertise are inaccurate. We will NEVER own a Speed Queen appliance AGAIN after this horrific experience.Customer service isnt the best either. One of the agents I have spoken with during this long and drawn out ordeal told me that they had changed their policy regarding reimbursements and tried to tell me because I had to get a third-party person to fix my washer, that they werent going to reimburse me. I have emails I have saved which contain another agent telling me I COULD get a third-party person to fix it because the service people they recommended refused to come to my area. How CONFUSING and UNCARING. Even the agents arent on the same page. The one who tried to tell me they wouldnt reimburse saw that the claim for the washer had been approved despite what she had previously told me. Unfortunately, it has taken 2 months for us to realize Speed Queen isnt the company we thought they were and we regret ever doing business with them. Buyers BEWARE.
We bought this because it was big and the salesman said it was reliable and it fit our budget. So far so good. It seems to do a pretty good job cleaning our clothes. Our old washer and dryer were Maytag and they lasted 22 years and cleaned well. At the time we were buying new ones we needed something less expensive. They seem to be doing a good job.
We bought this commercial washer for our apartment complex which we manage. Within 10 days of installation the machine was smoking and flooded the basement. When we contacted customer support, they said they would come out to repair it. It has now taken 3 service trips, and 6 weeks to try and fix the machine. Our tenants have been without a washing machine for nearly 2 months now, and they still refuse to simply replace it. I am extremely dissatisfied with this washer, and believe it is a LEMON! Customer service should replace it, as this is a huge inconvenience for us - but they still refuse! We are very frustrated over here.
In the 2 weeks we have had the front-loader (AFN50RSP113TW01), it has ruined 10 pieces of clothing. It is gentle but doesnt get out the stains produced by our 2 boys. Our previous washer from a big-box store lasted only 8 years, but at least it cleaned the clothes. Now were stuck with this well-built but poor performer for a very long time. The customer service personnel at Speed Queen were very nice, but very disappointed that the company wont replace the machine with a better model at this price point.
My husband surprised me with the Speed Queen washer (TR7) and dryer (DR7). The washer is fabulous. The dryer is awful! The metal plate in the back immediately turned black as it was burning our clothes. We cleaned the vents, replaced the panel and started drying everything on delicate and it is still burning our clothes. Called the store we bought it from and a technician called us and said it would be $150 to come out and basically told my husband it was user error and all the panels turn black. I am not spending a 1/3 of a new LG or Samsung for a tech to come out and tell me user error. All my boys underwear, socks, multiple shirts, countless blankets/comforters and 3 sets of sheets are burnt and ruined. Do not spend the grand on this dryer! My 8 year old Samsung dryer ran circles around this one - we should have never gotten rid of it!
Ive gone as far as to check with engineers at parent company Alliance Laundry. The only water temperature options for regular cycle are HOT and WARM. Up until now, Ive used cold water for most loads for a lot of years and now just waiting for my clothes to disintegrate because they havent figured this out. Absolute worst commercial washer.
Three years old, already washer circuit board replaced twice, now balance sensors and wiring harness await delivery and installation. Dryer belt already replaced, usually after a 10 day wait for service. We are 2 people, 6 loads per week. Cant be that we are using it too much. We were sold on the size (we had a space problem) and the great warranty. Too bad we have to have parts and service on speed dial. Luckily we have a local laundromat. Factory rep says ours is an anomaly but doesnt really have an answer for when the 5 year warranty is up. Make sure you really want this over some other brand, although results could be the same.
DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY. Purchased in October of 2019. From the very beginning there has been an undetermined leak. It appears that when in the spin cycle and the load is not balanced, but that is just my uneducated guess. A service rep has not been able to replicate the leak. I cannot use a spin cycle other than low spin. So much for warranty - the place of business where it was purchased (Dr. Appliance in Delmar, IA) has washed their hands and told me to deal directly with Speed Queen. That is a JOKE. Speed Queen has done NOTHING to resolve the issue - so much for the 10-year warranty! Now the Washing Machine wont even turn on. And by the way, most dealerships who service Speed Queen Appliances wont ever service if it was not purchased by them.
Purchased our washing machine May, 2017. Having problems with the unit. It has been to the service for 2nd time now at the Meyer Appliance where we purchased it. Since the unit is less than one year old, I have called the Speed Queen directly if we can get a new unit, but they denied our request. The unit has been in service since March 22, 2018. The first time was last year October-November, 2017. Very frustrated that we got the defective unit and they are still trying to fix it. Serial No.: 1704003888. Model: AFNE9RSP113TW.
We researched on Consumer Reports, as well as online, to find the best washing machine for our needs - top loader agitator, gentle on clothes, extra spin, easy to use. The Speed Queen TR5 seemed to fit the bill. It comes at a hefty price tag but the 10-year warranty, along with a built-in surge protector was very appealing. Purchased it 11/2019.PROS: if you want a user friendly machine without a bunch of digital malarky, this is it. If you prefer an old-fashioned, simple look, this is it. If you need a top-loader agitator that wont chew up your clothes, consider the TR5. If you like a 45-minute cycle, youve got it. If HE is important, its here. If all you need is small, medium, large loads, check it out. Is a great warranty, excellent reliability and made in the USA important? Speed Queen provides. CONS: if you want to throw in those extra socks, the lid lock does not make it easy. You need to pause the machine, wait for the click, toss in extra item/close and press start again. I was told it was only locked during the spin cycle but thats not true.Speaking of spin cycle, the TR5 doesnt spin strong enough, so I have to do an extra spin (no matter if perm press or heavy duty) and even then, it still feels wetter than my previous GE washer. And the slow agitation is good for the clothes but perhaps not so great in cleaning. Thank god were not miners. The machine is a little noisy.CR did not rank the Speed Queen well (it tested the TR7) and normally I would not even consider anything with such a low score but it gave very high scores in nearly everything except cleaning..and so many other washers had at least something that wasnt rated well. So...our previous GE was a much better washer all-in-all and if I was to grade our Speed Queen TR5 today, it would be a C+.
We purchased the TR5003WN washer and dryer only seven months ago and the washer has already broken down three times and the dryer has also broken down. To make matters worse, the parts they need to fix these machines are on back order indefinitely so we are just without the use of a washer and dryer even though we are under warranty. Speed Queen via their retail partner has been non-responsive in helping to fix these ongoing issues. This is the worst buying experience, donâ€™t go with speed queen.
Moved to new home 4 years ago & bought very expensive SQ commercial-grade washer/dryer set as advertised, #1 recommended in the nation. Thought it would be more durable & last longer. Salesperson said true. Washer literally destroys clothes! Chews materialâ€¦shreds towels, rips seams, trashes underwear, rips out zippers. So much lint removed from items at each washing that lint trap cannot hold it all. And that continues for months, after every washing! No towel in the house has lasted more than 3 months (good-quality towels!)! They look 25 years old!Worse, this model has no â€śbalancer!â€ť Clothes go out of balance constantly & washer makes a horrible, loud pounding sound & hops 6â€ť across the floor! Called recommended repair service & he said nothing he can do! He cannot add one, either. Shortly after we bought this model, the company must have gotten so many complaints, they supposedly added a balancer, but that does nothing to help us. Finally, the controls on both units are annoying beyond words. You set water temp, and the unit changes the load size on its own; or you set load size, and the temperature changes. Have to keep pushing same buttons repeatedly to get them to finally â€śstickâ€ť where you want them! Same with dryerâ€¦.very confusing on how to get it to just dry. Itâ€™s like trying to operate it in a foreign language! Bottom line: this set is a disaster from start to finish! Save your money: do not buy!
Weâ€™ve had the washer since February 2021. It works great. Dont have any problems but the start button. Its the same button to pause it, thatâ€™s ridiculous because its so sensitive you cant even touch it without it going to the pause! Youre supposed to hold it for three seconds to pause but it doesnt matter. It just keeps beeping, so annoying, really think it should be a different button! I dont even want to use. We it paid way too much for it to be like that! I know Im not the only one having problems with that button!!!
I used Speed Queen at a laundromat, and they are amazing! You can get more into your loads without worry. You know all of your clothes will come out clean. Sometimes I go to the laundromat to use their machines for my bedding. With the ones I have used it was nice to have a presoak option. Plus I like the high speed cycle of removing water. You dont have to worry about your clothes being so heavy with water when you go to dry. However, the ones at the laundromat take forever because of the presoak cycle. It would be nice if it went a tad faster and it would be cool if it cleaned itself out after every use LOL!
Prior to purchasing this Speed Queen AFNE9B-AWo1 Front Load Washing Machine we had an old LG 10kg machine and as we are in our 70s decided to pay the $3.5k so the machine would outlast us. Unfortunately lasting ability is no use if it doesnt do the job. IT DOES NOT CLEAN YOUR CLOTHES! This machine has NO lint filter so flecks of lint cover your freshly washed clothes and in the folds of the clothes there is often dirty marks which have to be rubbed off in a clean tub of water despite using the second rinse cycle on the machine. My advice is AVOID THIS MACHINE at all costs.
I think they are very good machines to use. Have used them at same washteria and were excellent in cleaning the clothes. Only once in awhile they were unreliable when were out of order!! They are dependable in getting the clothes washed and cleaned!! The machines are so quiet you dont even know that they are running until the light goes out and know that the clothes are done and ready to be put in dryer!!! The machines are so reliable and dependable that you simply cannot think of anything that will make you dislike the machines. I understand the clothes have to go in different cycles to get cleaned but you have to be patience until the machine stops!!
Updated on 04/28/2021: We purchased a TR5 Speed Queen washer/dryer in June 2020. The washer has never worked right and the place of purchase Big Sandy Dublin, Ohio keeps sending out repairman that cannot fix it. Yesterday we had a 3:00 appointment after waiting another 2 weeks and repairman canceled. Next month the washer warranty will run out and Iâ€™m wondering if thatâ€™s the goal. I will never buy anything from Big Sandy or Speed Queen again. They donâ€™t treat the customers right or back up their product. Iâ€™m reading many customer complaints of these newer speed queen appliances not working so this is definitely an issue they ARE aware of... There needs to be a recall and these customers need refunded the money they spent on these appliance lemons!! I spent the extra money for the speed queen name and quality and Iâ€™m now regretting it!Original Review: BUYER BEWARE???? Warning on buying Speed Queen appliances.??? We purchased the TR5 washer and dryer around this time last year. Almost immediately the washing cycle would stop and 4 lights come on simultaneously. The repairman have been to our house 3 times and the last time they replaced the control board but that didnâ€™t fix it. Now theyâ€™re saying itâ€™s a balance issue. We were sold a lemon and I have asked for a refund since we alerted them to this problem from the very beginning. I was told in an email that the manufacturers warranty covers repairs; there are no provisions for returns/exchanges so Iâ€™ll have to keep the lemon they sold me! I spent the extra money on this set because of the Speed queen name and quality and Iâ€™m deeply regretting it. I will NEVER buy a product from this company again nor will I recommend them to anyone.
Bought a Speed Queen TR7000 top loading washer in Feb 2020, just before the Covid shutdown. After being handed a line about the durability of these washers, little over year later, its not fully draining and leaking. Id give them zero stars if I could.
My Speed Queen washing machine works great! My clothes come out much cleaner than with the last two washers I used. The Speed Queen dryer is fine. I wish it had a moisture sensor to prevent me from over drying my clothes. They could really use a styling makeover for those people who care about the appearance of their washer/dryer.
I really loved Speed Queen. I bought it because that is what my mother used and I am a traditional person, she was so pleased with her machine and is one I knew and grew up with so I knew I would love to be the owner of a Speed Queen washer and dryer. When I married and began my family we used it daily when the children came along and loved the experience of being owners. I enjoy that it is simple to use and so easy to operate, I could hold my child in one arm and add the softener when needed, I could unload and place in dryer with child in my arms, my husband could and was able to use this machine with ease and enjoyed the fact that it was very easy and simple to use, he never messed up the clothes he washes or dried. I was so grateful for that.I would love it to have an alarm or bell to tell when wash is completed and would love a signal for when to add the softener so that I could do other things while waiting for the chance to add. I would love to see it improved for the younger generation and also my two sons will know what brand to purchase when they marry or move out on their own.
I have had several washing machines and dryers in my life. I bought a Speed Queen washer and dryer last month thru recommendation of my appliance repair man. He told me if people would buy them they would never go back, he said I would get at least 20 years out of them. Thank goodness for him. I got the top load commercial and it is wonderful. You can actually adjust from mini loads to extra large loads. It takes 30 minutes to wash a normal soil load of clothes instead of the 116 minutes on the other. The clothes are much cleaner. The energy and water savings are great. You can have any appliance in my house. Just dont take my Speed Queens.
I should have did more research before I bought this product. I was looking for a top loader with an agitator that actually agitated like the washing machines we use to buy back in the 70s & 80s. Machines that were made to wash your clothes and not give them a soothing bath. First of all with this washer the lid locks and I feel that is the most ridiculous thing I have ever seen. I would give anything to break it off and shove it up the persons butt who came up with this stupidity. If parents today cannot control their kids and keep them away from things that are not there for them to play with, then we should not have to have a locking mechanism on the lid. Secondly, I would like to be able to open the lid and see if there is enough soap as the machine is working; this does not happen. And as for cleaning the clothes; not frigging likely. It is a bigger piece of crap than my front loader was. I would gladly send these pieces of garbage back to Speed Queen and get my money back and go and buy back my front loader. I am so upset every time I use this machine it gives me a headache. I am tired of dealing with all the stupidity that there is in this world. Something seriously needs to be told to these so called engineers to try and stop re-inventing the wheel. If it aint broke dont fix it. Leave the damn thing alone. It was working fine without your intervention. As for the dryer; not to impressed with that either. Stupid place for the lint screen; at the front of the door and wide open. Not too bright.
I love Speed Queen. I like all the features. They have advanced in the technology of the world today. They are one of the oldest and new brands of all times. I can wash any size load and the washer and dryer adjust itself to whatever capacity that I have in them. I can never over load or under load using this brand. They have come a long way. I love the fact that it seems like it knows the level of clean that I require. My kids and husband used these items and they are very please each and every time they use it.
My mother normally used the Speed Queen ringer washer to wash clothes for 7 people on a regular basis and there were no problems with it as I recall. She was hospitalized for a while and that was when I used it when I was 18 years old -- Im now 65. It was a pretty basic ringer washer, but its features were fine at the time because me and my family lived on a small farm in the country. There really wasnt space for what was referred to back then as an automatic washer. So the ringer washer suited fine. The main features were a stainless-steel tub and the ringer. It was of course portable (on wheels).
We bought our Speed Queen washer (TR3000WN) through Amazon in Oct. 2016. This is the old school model; not computerized. Formerly we went through several brands and models of different big-name washers, some of which were rather expensive, and most of which lasted only a few years at best. While many of the reviews of the newer Speed Queens seem to indicate that the brand is no longer as good as it once was, I can attest that so far ours has been WONDERFUL. IT WASHES THE CLOTHES. We live on a farm and have lots of dirt. The Speed Queen does not play around, but washes the clothes quickly and gets them clean. Our former eco-friendly washer took FOREVER and still did not do as good a job. I recommend this particular model of Speed Queen, if you can find one.
Tried to wash clothes this week, burning smell is coming from washer. Does not spin. Machine is 4 years old. Bitter Neumann tells me it is no longer under warranty. Warranty should be at least 5 years for this kind of problem. Disappointed. Poor design. Will not buy another Speed Queen. Machine is extremely heavy and very hard to take up and down stairs.
I purchased a TR5 Speed Queen Washer in December 2019. It started malfunctioning even before the delivery truck was out of my driveway. The whole control panel was then replaced at the end of December 2019. Today, January 12, 2020, it is malfunctioning again. The lid locking mechanism works sometimes, but not other times. Im afraid that this will cause the machine to stop working completely as did the prior problem. This machine is not living up to its reputation. Maybe this one is just a lemon, but hopefully I can get a replacement or a working machine at some point. This was a $1,000 machine.
I call myself being smart being buying true iconic American brand washer and dryer set, and to my surprise, my 15 year old Roper I got on Craigslist for $75 out washed this almost $3,000 stainless steel washer. What I immediately noticed that all my clothes were coming out this front loader smelling like Tide pods, after a complete wash cycle. This machine doesnt wash clothes, because it doesnt tumble in enough water. Im a truck driver and travel the country on a regular, and ran across a similar machine at a Flying J, it did the same thing. So I complained and demanded my money back because this machine left my clothes smelling worse, prior to washing. And I was told that the government had decided on how much water is needed to wash your clothes, which is at least two gallons short, therefore, no I find my myself using a extra rinse cycle, which extends my cycle to an hour, just to remove the smell of tide. I tried contacting the manufacturer to figure out some kinda hack to add more water, and was basically told by these people, good luck with that. Ok let get this straight, I paid nearly $6,000 for this washer/dryer combo, and I kid you not, my hundred year old Roper will clean ten times better, and I paid less than $100 bucks, used, over 15 years ago. This doesnt make any sense.
September 2018 we purchased the new washer. We had heard that they were a top notch machine since they were considered commercial. Well last night we had the machine shred plastic into our drum. We have no idea what happened. Today is Sunday so I have to wait until tomorrow to contact the supplier for service. Since the shredding of plastic was so bizarre I decided tonight to read some reviews to see if anyone else had this issue. Lo and behold sure enough Suresha of San Anselmo, CA posted a review about this exact same issue on Jan 20, 2019. Seems this machine is a lemon and defective.I will be taking this information to the store where we purchased our machine. I do not even want to go thru what she already went thru. I will see what our distributor does to correct this problem but I dont see anything other than replacing it with a new machine and even that based on the other reviews I have read about Speed Queen I dont want to stay with Speed Queen but I may have to just to try and get some of my money out of it.
Speed Queen worked quite well for me and for many years. It was an older model which may have been the reason it worked for so long and so well since older things seem to have staying power compared to todayâ€™s appliances. It was nothing special or brag about, just your average washing machine. It washed the clothes and spin them close to dry and thats all I or anyone needs in a washing machine.
Cuando mi lavadora de cinco aĂ±os (Whirlpool) muriĂł la semana pasada, le preguntĂ© al tĂ©cnico que la declarĂł muerta quĂ© tipo de mĂˇquina debĂa comprar. Su respuesta: Speed Queen. Ni siquiera tuvo que pensarlo. SeguĂ su recomendaciĂłn y comprĂ© una Speed Queen TC5 de carga superior. Las opciones son sencillas, pero la limpieza es eficaz. No es necesario que el panel de control de una lavadora parezca un mando de lanzamiento de cohetes. Sin embargo, hay algunos consejos para obtener el mĂˇximo rendimiento de la mĂˇquina.
My 25 yr old Maytag still worked and sold for $100 on Letgo. My washer of 20 yrs was broke and I wanted a matching set. My first in 50 yrs of marriage. $2,000 later what a mistake. The same day the dryer made such a loud banging noise that I called the salesman right away. Got service two days later. It started again. I should have had it replaced then. Because it never waste solved but after warming up it would stop. Now six months after warranty is out the timer wonâ€™t turn off the dryer. It ran for four hours before I realized it. Lakeview Service came out on the washer problem was very rude and abrupt. Do not use them. He wanted to charge me a service call charge. The washer was a yr old and Speed Queen advised me to call them. I am a married 70 yr old only user of this machine and so very disappointed in this Product. Buyer Beware.
Very, Very, Very, Disappointed. Lousy cleaning - Lousy Drying. Terrible, Terrible equipment. Washer and Dryer do not work as I expected. They are noisy, do not wash or dry clothes very well. I have owned FOUR sets of Washer Dryers over the last 30+ years, leaving them in the homes I move from. Washer has ruined some of my clothes, even on the delicate cycle! The clothes are almost dripping when the wash cycle is done. Soap does not get dispersed very well, with soap splotches on cotton items. On top of lousy functioning, the top of the top loading washer is warped. The manufacturer says they make them that way on purpose. WTF For???? GIVE ME A BREAK - BUILT WITH A WARPED TOP??? Most money I ever spent for a washer and dryer and I feel like I have been had.
My husband and I bought a Speed Queen Washer in 2018, might I say it was not cheap. We had heard good reviews and wanted to get one that would last. We have now had it two years and now I am having to wash each load twice to just get most of the stains out of the clothes. My husband is a farmer and can go thru two to three pairs of jeans a day depending on what he is working on. For what we spend I could have bought a cheap one every six months for what this one cost. If you are looking to do heavy duty laundry the Speed Queen is not for the job.
After one year I had to wash my clothes by hand. The Speed Queen model AFNE9BSP116TW13 totally stopped working. It took almost 2 months to get a service person to repair it. Then to add insult to injury the Alliance customer service Chat was a total joke, no response even though I was number 1 and so was trying to get through on their phone number. I hung up after 25 minutes. I need moving bolts and cannot find anywhere to get them. It puts me at risk for totally damaging the machine in my upcoming move. The dealer lied to me about it being a 10 year warrantee. When the machine broke down I opened up the sealed package (no manual) and it said 5 years. The dealer denied he ever claimed it was a 10 year warrantee. What a racket.
I find when using the washer it is extremely noisy. My worst complaint is that even using (1) king size sheet (not the full set) to wash, it comes out in a tied up knot. Its put in loosely. Its really bad if I put in the full set. What in the world is the agitator doing?
It worked great. A super machine that lasted for years with no maintenance and never broke down. It was the perfect machine from day one until it outlived its usefulness. The only reason it was replaced was that it had become out of date. I liked the permanent press cycle. It always was gentle on my clothes and never faded them or caused any tears or rips. I still love it today. I would recommend it to anybody.
This washer was bought in November 2019 and started malfunctioning in June 2020. It refused to go to the rinse cycle. After several calls to Speed Queen they said it needed repair and recommended a repair service. After over 4 months of waiting, the motor has been replace along with a main computer board and still the machine wont work. they are coming to replace a second computer board today. thats three parts being replaced in a machine that is under a year old. Ive had washers over a decade old that never needed parts replaced. Speed queen refuses to replace the machine. Their warranty only covers repairs, not replacements. Even if its made in America its still garbage and a lemon that should never have made it to a showroom. This is what happens when sales top quality control. its the most expensive machine Ive ever owned and the absolute worst. Stick with Samsung, Whirlpool, anything other than Speed Queen. Dont believe the hype and advertising.
We purchased new washer and dryer from Speed Queen base on Old School performance recommendations. The washer seems to get overloaded when there are 2 or more pairs of jeans in the load being laundered.
After trying to find this washer in stock for months I finally found one... They had just received 3 and had 2 people on their way to get one... We jumped in our truck to go purchase one and was the first ones there (an hour away) got it in place and I have been washing everything in site... After going through 5 sets of front loaders of various brands.. GE, Whirlpool, Kenmore, Maytag and LG... what a relief to have a machine that finally gets the clothes clean... I can pre-soak and everything comes out so clean... very basic controls (which is a nice change). We are very impressed with this machine and the quality. Waiting on the matching dryer to come in... But I couldnt be happier with this washer.
Not happy with the washer. Purchased to replace LG that was destroyed when my home burned during the N. Calif wild fires. Completely new home and just moved in. The washer has suds coming up the Drain, stand pipe during the spin cycle which overflow down the wall and onto the floor. The rubber adapter supplied to defuse this problem lessens but does not eliminate it. Online search shows this is a common problem with this washer as does the fact that Speed Queen has developed a adapter to defuse the suds problem. Unfortunately the solution is inadequate. Im considering taking the 2K loss paid for the washer and dryer to save on home repairs down the road. My suggestion is to look elsewhere for your washer.
I used a Speed Queen triple load washer at the laundromat. I think they work well and takes about 25 minutes to wash everything. I like the size of it. I can fit a lot of clothes in the triple size washing machine, and it seems like it holds a good amount of clothes. I try to put as much stuff as possible in there so I dont have to pay as much money. But when its full it doesnt seem to want to wash all the clothes.

I purchase a Speed Queen because I had the last one for over 30 years. I wish I had researched the new machines better. I bought a top load TC5003WN and it is terrible. It has very few options you can choose for yourself. For example, you cannot control the water level. It has a small and large load water level, nothing in between. The autofill barely covers the clothes in the tub. Ive had to wash my clothes twice and we are only 2 adults here who do not get that dirty. Secondly, the fabric softener gets on my clothes and again, I had to wash them again. There is no rinse only cycle on this machine. I have added water to the fabric softener to dilute it, but it still stained a nightgown. I wish I had my old machine back. Id spend whatever it took to get a new tub on it, at least I could control the washings. I really hate this unit. The only good thing I will say is that it is very quiet. Unbelievable that this made in America product from this company is so bad. Sorry to be so negative, but I wish someone had warned me about these details before I bought.
I could not be more disappointed in an appliance, and Ive been buying them for my home for over 40 years. We had our Speed Queen dryer one month (!) and it stopped working. Cracked terminal block. Part not in stock! Long wait for repair.
I have to say something because Im disgusted with this machine. Probably the most sturdy machine out there but simply does not clean good. My wifes dress clothes come out with the white marks on blacks. We have tried different soaps, and every possible setting to no avail. Extra rinses and all. Forget about my work jeans. They come out of this machine looking just as dirty as I put them in. I wish I kept my good perfectly running old washer with the good old agitator. I seriously dont know what Speed Queen was thinking of when they designed this machine. Think about this review before you buy this $1000 machine.
Me gusta mucho mi Speed Queen. Antes tenĂa una nueva lavadora de carga frontal LG. Mi ropa se ensuciaba cada vez mĂˇs. Pero cuando cambiĂ© a Speed Queen estaban mucho mĂˇs limpias. Tiene todos los ajustes que puedas desear. Desde el ciclo suave hasta el planchado permanente y el regular. No hay nada mejor que el viejo agitador.
Speed Queen was front loading and very modern looking, and worked very well. My clothes were very clean and soft. I liked it but it had a lot of different settings which I didnt understand. But for someone who cares it would be a dream to use. I wish it had a just wash the stuff mode. For someone who doesnt get too involved, it would be very confusing to use. Otherwise everything was great.
Este es el segundo juego de lavadora y secadora Speed Queen que hemos comprado. (Vendimos nuestra casa y dejamos el juego para los nuevos compradores.) Speed Queen estĂˇ hecha en los Estados Unidos de acero de alta calidad y productos duraderos. Es la marca que han utilizado en las lavanderĂas durante aĂ±os por su durabilidad. No tiene un montĂłn de campanas y silbatos. Es una lavadora de carga superior y una secadora de fondo frontal. Nunca he tenido problemas de olores, no secado, lavado, etc. Cuestan mĂˇs, pero merecen la pena. No comprarĂa nada mĂˇs de SPEED QUEEN.
Very first use of this dryer with only a light, partial load, and either the belt or the pulley broke! Actually, for the record, not VERY first use, as I tried it briefly after installing it with no load just to make sure all was well. It survived that initial test, but not with clothes in it. Very disappointed. The seller is going to make it good, but thats besides the point. For $950 I expect a product to actually work.
I wanted a heavy duty dryer and bought this on the recommendation of the salesman. It was professionally installed by the dealer who confirmed proper ventilation. Drying takes at least one hour per load. The sensor cycles do not work. The clothes are still damp even when set to dry. After talking to the manufacturers representative, the repairman said the dryer is functioning properly.I contacted the company who wrote, During the first 6 minutes of the cycle the machine takes readings of how wet the load is. During this time the control calculates how much time will be needed to dry the load. It also takes into account, with the current options selected, the average of the last 5 loads with the same settings selected. The time will vary with load size, type of fabric, amount of moisture in the load, air flow and the laundry room environment. After the initial 6 minutes when the time is calculated, the machine then runs for that amount of time.In other words, the sensor does not sense the present load but stops at some predicted time regardless of the dryness of the load. Further, the representative said only delicates should be dried on the delicate setting. Jeans, sweaters, and other items that would shrink at high temperature are not delicates. He suggested drying them on the timer on low temperature. While this does work, it means the sensor settings are useless.
I bought the Speed Queen for several reasons, their reputation, it was made in the USA (I thought) and the reliability. Ive had this washer over two years. It washes without issue. I can wash a large comforter with no problem and I havent had any service needs. HOWEVER, it DOES NOT get clothes clean. Ive tried switching detergents, smaller loads, everything. It simply doesnt get the clothes clean.Also, on Normal Wash, they should tell you that that means COLD WASH. There is no way to wash Normal on hot or warm, even if you have the temperature setting on hot or warm. It washes cold, ice cold. Prior to purchase, I did research and there was another Speed Queen that had reviews of not getting the clothes clean, but it was not this model. Add the TC5 to the list of disappointing washers. This washer was 3 times the price of washer with these options. Speed Queen is very basic. No fancy bells and whistles. What a huge waste of money. I do not recommend this washer and after my experience and I dont recommend Speed Queen.
I made a HUGE mistake not taking my Whirlpool W/D set to my new house. I had heard so many wonderful reviews about Speed Queen - workhorse, great warranties, etc. Now Im stuck with a horrible washer and disgusting mildew smell. I contacted the dealer - the mildew problem is not covered by the warranty. They suggested I contact Speed Queen directly which I did but never received a response. Ive tried everything - vinegar/baking soda, Affresh, always leaving the washer door wide open - nothing works. Twenty years ago I purchased the first front load washer Maytag made. It had the same mildew problem and Maytag contacted me ahead of me contacting them! The problem was fixed at NO CHARGE. My opinion - dont buy Speed Queen.
I bought a stackable Speed Queen after reading about the reliability and longevity of the machines. I had read that they are workhorses and well built. Unfortunately, they are not that well designed and it is a daily frustration when I use mine. First of all, the upper dryer door is not round, it is flat at the bottom. This seems like it is a trivial detail, but because of the shape of the door opening, it is about 2-3 inches higher that I need to reach in the grab the dry clothes and for me at 51 that is the difference between being able to reach the back of the machine or not. Presumably this was done to have a straight edged lint catcher, but that is a foolish compromise.The lint catcher brings me to my next complaint. You cannot remove the lint catcher without unscrewing it! To remove the lint, you just need to swipe your hand and grab the lint - no big deal, BUT if you want to clean it properly with a brush every so often, like I do, you cannot. Most people may not clean the lint catcher and the exhaust tube from there, but I always have and I can see that there is plenty of dust that gets through the catcher and is in the tubing beyond where I can reach without breaking out my screwdriver. That is a fire hazard and a ridiculous inconvenience to the average homemaker, housecleaner or working mother.Next issue is the soap dispenser. It is so poorly designed that unless you close the dispenser immediately it leaks down the front of the machine and not only that, it tracks to yet another spot where it is difficult to reach and clean! When I take my soap dispenser out to clean, about every two weeks, the inside of the space where it fits also has dried liquid detergent in the corners and edges. This is poor design, it is not because I am using too much detergent - I am not. The lower panel at the bottom of the machine also needs to be cleaned/serviced, according to the manual every 6 months. Well this is also a major pain in the neck requiring the machines to be pulled out from their built in cabinetry positions and a couple of hex screws to be undone. Really? Couldnt they make it so the access was all from the front?As for their functionality - it is fine. They are pretty quiet machines, they do the job, though I dont believe the auto-sensor works for dryness, and they certainly havent broken, though I have only been using them for 1 year. Leaving the washing machine door open after using it has prevented any bad odors, BUT the glass insert in the door accumulates a weird soapy grime that requires a scrubby sponge to clean each week. I use the same regular eco-safe detergent (Persil) I used in my previous machine and never had that problem, which makes me believe it is the shape of the glass design. Of course also, these are a bit smaller than many of the big machines out there, but that is well stated in their literature and was no surprise. Realistically, you cannot do two sets of sheets in one load though. The machine is just stuffed then and the dryer takes forever to dry if it is that full. This is an issue if you have a cleaning lady coming to do all the sheets in one day. It will take forever. Luckily, we just change our sheets on different days, but I no longer have a house full of kids - If I did - this would NOT be family functional washing machine and dryer
I had these appliances when my family was young (in diapers through grade school), and found them to be reliable and dependable. They were purchased more than 30 years ago in Columbus, NE and I chose them because the laundromat had that brand. I remember there was an extra prewash cycle that worked well for doing cloth diapers. I really liked the prewash cycle for rinsing diapers before doing their regular wash cycle. Alas! Few people use cloth diapers anymore! Then, as my sons got older, and into sports, I found the prewash cycle handy for tough, messy dirt and spills on their clothes. But when we moved to Sheboygan WI, we decided we would buy new appliances rather than move the ones that were over eight years old. The store in Sheboygan did not carry the Speed Queen brand.
Purchased a matched set Speed Queen washer/dryer in June of 2013. We experienced burning smells from the dryer from day one, but really didnt think much of it. Finally, in September of 2017, the smell got really bad so we called the repairman. When he opened it up, he couldnt believe the mess he saw inside. The machine had bad connectors from day one and they had finally gotten to the point where they burned so badly inside, they almost started a fire. The repairman said it was a manufacturer defect and to contact the company. We did, and they did nothing. They didnt even apologize that they almost burned our house down. Considering I frequently run the dryer during the night, a fire could have easily started while we were sleeping. I am stunned by the lack of customer service and am afraid to continue using the unit. The washing machine has made a noise from day one, as well, but the repairman cannot figure out where its coming from. I am so upset that all my long research to find the best, longest lasting machines still turned up junk.
We bought the SpeedQueen Commercial Heavy - Duty grade Washer (AWNE82SP113TW01) & Dryer (ADGE8RGS113TW01) in Feb 2018. Washer Cons: Short wash cycle does not get clothes clean. Additionally, the timed wash counts down even as it fills. It may use up 5 mins of the wash time before even being full. Cannot chose warm in its default ECO mode- essentially very cold only. Ridiculously loud wash cycle.Dryer Cons: Wetness Sensor doesnt do anything. However wet the clothes are at the end of the timed cycle - thats how theyll sit. Clothes are often damp after cycle finishes. If were not home to immediately start the Fluff cycle, clothes sit damp for hours/days. In short, the limited number of cycle options dont dry clothes. Im very concerned about energy efficiency, but not drying clothes doesnt make it a better unit.I did a good deal of research on this product before purchasing and really hoped for a better than box-store experience. (My wife has been very kind in not complaining about my well-reasoned choice.) Technically, the units work; we have not had any non-functional issues as some have reported here. And we make adjustments to get clothes clean & dry. In short, I wouldnt recommend either product and we regret our purchases. I hope the American made brand can get their act together going forward.
Purchased Speed Queen washer and dryer from Orvilles in Buffalo New York. 4 years later the heating element stopped working. 10 day lead time for part and half the cost of the dryer. Will never purchase a speed queen again, piece of junk.
I had a Speed Queen for many years and I was very happy with its performance. It didnt spin too long like some washers do but it still spun out good. It lasted a good many years without any problems. My Speed Queen washer had just one feature that I really liked and that was the permanent press feature so clothes wouldnt wrinkle. Best as I can tell it would wash in warm and rinse in cold or something to that effect. Its transmission worked fine the entire time I had it.
Our 4 year old Maytag was needing repairs and the repair was about 2/3 the cost of the machine. I did research to find the best reviews for a good quality washer. Speed Queen seemed to have good reviews. I paid the higher cost to get a quality washer. It is less than 5 years and we are having to pay repair bills on this Speed Queen washer. There is no difference in the quality of this machine. It has not lasted any longer than a regular brand washer. Dont waste your money, get the cheaper brand.
We have had both the washer and dryer for seven years with no problems or service calls. Ten year guarantee on the washer is comforting and they both perform at a quality level. The only complaint we have is that the washer does not have a buzzer, but the dryer does.
Our machine is less than eight months old or machine and we have two major problems. First the inner plastic ring is falling apart. We have chunks of plastic in our clothes. Eventually the entire ring is going to break down. Our second problem is we have a internal water leak in the tub. Fortunately we have a plastic liner under the machine, otherwise our wood floors would be ruined. We are called Speed Queen twice and talk to someone by the name of Tim, who seems to have absolutely no information on anything. We had someone come out to repair the machine and we were told we should just get a new one. Itâ€™s in pretty bad shape. He came out again the following week and was told that he had to replace the tub the liner and and find where the leak in the tub is. Today a week later we called Speed Queen. Spoke with Tim once again to find out what the status of our parts and repair was. He knew nothing. We called the appliance repair place directly and they are trying to track our parts but they said Speed Queen sends things through some super cheap delivery service not a UPS or FedEx and itâ€™s hard to even find out where the parts are since thereâ€™s no tracking number. Meanwhile every time I do a load of wash thereâ€™s white chunks of plastic in my clothes. Oh and I forgot to add the machine makes these horrible clanking noise as well. Thatâ€™s important. Anyway I thousand dollars for this machine what a joke customer service from Speed Queen. Disgusting. Do not buy this machine or actually anything from Speed Queen.
Mi familia es muy activa. Mi hija monta a caballo y trabaja en un establo, por lo que tenemos mucha ropa sucia y maloliente, incluidas las mantas de los caballos y las almohadillas de las sillas de montar. Cuando mi Maytag se rompiĂł, fui a una pequeĂ±a tienda local que tenĂa varias marcas de electrodomĂ©sticos a la venta. Le contĂ© al vendedor nuestra situaciĂłn y le dije que no querĂa nada lujoso, que sĂłlo querĂa una lavadora y una secadora que fueran un caballo de batalla. Me recomendĂł Speed Queen. Nunca habĂa oĂdo hablar de Speed Queen, pero confiĂ© en Ă©l e hice la compra.
I recently purchased a 2020 Speed Queen top load washer and matching gas dryer. The products were highly rated and I must say they perform well. I did find an issue with the washer only. When the machine is running it generates an RF field that almost totally interferes with AM radio broadcasts. This happens when a portable (battery powered) or plug in radio is used. This never happened with previous GE washer or Kenmore washer that I owned over the past 40 plus years. I contacted their service dept. online and explained the situation. The response was, We sell a filter kit to remedy this situation but it is not covered by your warranty. I priced the kit at various sites and they run anywhere from $145 on up. Now mind you this is for part only. Installation was not even mentioned. I find this unreasonable as they admit to a problem by offering a fix at the consumers expense.
ComprĂ© mi Speed Queen TR5 en diciembre, despuĂ©s de haber tenido varias Whirlpools mediocres a lo largo de los aĂ±os. Antes de tomar mi decisiĂłn, mirĂ© mĂˇs lavadoras de las que me gustarĂa admitir, leyendo reseĂ±as, comparando caracterĂsticas, viendo vĂdeos de YouTube de gente revisando y lavando ropa en varias mĂˇquinas. De verdad. Mi cabeza se sentĂa como el ciclo de centrifugado.
He pagado un poco mĂˇs, pero me encanta mi Speed Queen. Es fiable, puedo lavar una gran carga y deja mi ropa limpia - se llena de agua. La lavadora que tenĂa antes de esta era un andquot;water saverandquot;, llenando sĂłlo alrededor de la mitad. Mi ropa didnandt olor a limpio, asĂ que empecĂ© a lavar sĂłlo la mitad de una carga a la vez. No mucho en el ahorro de energĂa, Âżeh?
We purchased a Speed Queen washer and dryer for our new home in December 2017. I was surprised to see that were making these for home use as I used to work for a man who had several commercial washing centers in Philadelphia. These were the best machines ever. Now after using this for a few months it takes so long to dry towels and when washing new towels this week they came out with all kinds of pulled loops on towels, hand towels and washcloths. Very disappointed with this dryer. Washer also does not have a longer time to wash. Only 29 minutes max for heavy duty. Whatâ€™s up with that?
The Speed Queen washer is a dependable machine that washes the clothes perfectly and has a large capacity. Its operation is quiet. The large agitator distributes the soap throughout the entire load. It is solidly built and I would highly recommend this manufacturer.
I like the timer on the Speed Queen because it lets you know how long you have left until you have to deal with your laundry. I also like the large size of the machines especially when you go to wash blankets and comforters. But, I hated my washer, nothing came clean and the dryer never dries everything. The only place I have ever used one of these was at the laundromat so it might have been bad up keep on the machine. I would make it that it washed better and maybe increase the heat in the dryers so they dry better. I would also move the area that you add the detergent. It is always on the top and really hard for someone who is not tall to reach it.
Until now, I had been happy with my Speed Queen Washer. It is simple to use and does an okay job cleaning my clothes. However, after just three years of use, one of the plastic arms on the agitator inside the tub broke off after washing three pairs of jeans and a handful of shirts. Upon closer examination, I noticed that the plastic used for the arms is rather thin and flimsy, certainly not the heavy duty commercial quality that I paid a premium price for. I called Speed Queen and was told that the part wasnt under warranty which rather surprised me. So buyer beware.
It has been 4 weeks and still have no working machine. I bought it in 2015 and have had no trouble with it until now. It seems it is impossible to get parts and when Kettle Moraine Appliance gets the parts they are shipped wrong or just cant get them. Not sure who is to blame but going to the laundry when there is a perfectly good washer right here in the house is frustrating and expensive. Machine works good, just POOR service and no help from either company. Would I buy another Speed Queen, NEVER.
I purchased a 2018 Speed Queen washer in Sept of 2018. It was delivered mid October. I have not had a single load of clean clothing since. It has had problem after problem, and the repairman has been out four times in the last month alone. The washer fills with water, but doesnt agitate half of the time. When a load is finished, the soap and scent booster is still on the top of the clothing. We have been working without dealer, and Speed Queen, but so far all I have had is disappointment. I do believe they desire to help, but they have no idea why the machine isnt working, and would rather replace parts weekly than replace the machine. Never again!
We had a Kenmore washer for over 25 years, but had to leave it in the house when we moved. I decided to upgrade to a Speed Queen when replacing the Kenmore. Because I wanted a top-load machine without a computer and many settings, I decided upon the TR3...and am every so disappointed. One problem with this machine is that clothes do not come out clean (too little agitation?), so every little spot or mark or stain must be hand-scrubbed before being put into the washer. A second problem is the minimal number of settings. If the load of clothes seem to need an additional spin, they must go through the entire wash cycle first. There is no way to select just one portion of the cycle. It is all or nothing. I had not noted this feature of the machine before purchasing. I am so very sorry that I spent that amount of money to be so very disappointed. Will be replacing this washer soon with something other than a Speed Queen.
There were SQ washer in a laundromat I visited regularly, plus I owned one-inexpensive to buy. My 3.42 cubic feet washer AWNE92SP113 is dependable, no nonsense and gets the clothes clean. It comes in white which reminds me of clean laundry. It wasnt heavy like some and was easy to move when I moved from an apartment to a house. It also has top loading, two rinse cycles, I could select the water temperature and the agitator strength. I also liked the cycle only took about 20 minutes. The one I had didnt used a timer and I wish it did. I would add a mini-basket. It wastes water when you have a smaller load than the washers select small load. Make sure each Speed Queen washer has a timer.
I purchased this model of Speed Queen Washing machine (as a set with a Speed Queen Dryer) in September of 2011. And almost 9 years to the date, the washing machine bearings froze and burned the belt. The machine cost me $706 in 2011 and another $150 for a technician to determine the bearings were frozen. I wouldnt expect such low life expectancy from such a high end washing machine. And as such, I wouldnt recommend this brand to anyone. My next machine will be a Miele or Bosch. I hear they are still producing high quality and most importantly DURABLE products. Very disappointed!
Bought two new speed queen dryers. Both starter buttons are defective. After time button came apart inside. Tried to repair, but came apart once again. Now have it put together with plastic wire ties.
Tengo una lavadora y secadora comercial Speed Queen. La mejor de todas. Las lavadoras de carga frontal son una mierda. Tuve una Maytag y una Whirlpool Duet. Ambas murieron en 5 aĂ±os. Todas de plĂˇstico. Las lavadoras de carga superior que no tienen agitador no limpian la ropa.
We purchased a new washer and dryer set from Albees appliances in Los Angeles in October of 2018. We have had Speed Queens throughout the years with little issue. Sadly, both the manufacturer and seller no longer stand by their product, 5 months after purchase the washer is not working, they will cover parts, not labor.
