When my five-year old (Whirlpool) top loader died last week, I asked the repairman who pronounced it dead what kind of machine should I buy. His answer: “Speed Queen”. He didn’t even have to think about it. I followed his recommendation and bought a Speed Queen TC5 top loader. The options are simple, but the cleaning is effective. You don’t need the control panel of a washing machine to look like a rocket launch control. There are some hints, however, to get the maximum performance from the machine.
I really like my Speed Queen. I had a new LG front loader before. My clothes just kept getting dingier and dingier. But when I switched to speed Queen they were so much cleaner. It has all the settings you could want. From gentle cycle to permanent press to regular. You just can't beat the good old agitator.
I paid a little more, but I LOVE my Speed Queen. It's reliable, I can wash a big load and it gets my clothes clean - it fills up with water. The washer I had before this one was a "water saver", filling up only about half way. My clothes didn't smell clean, so I started washing only half a load at a time. Not much on energy savings, uh?
This is the second set of Speed Queen Washer/Dryer that we have purchased. (We sold our house and left the set for the new buyers.) Speed Queen is made in the USA of high quality steel and lasting products. It is the brand they have used in laundromats for years for their lasting durability. It doesn't have a lot of bells and whistles. It is a top loader washer and a front bottom dryer. I have never had any problems with smells, not drying, washing etc. They do cost more, but they are well worth it. I WOULDN'T BUY ANYTHING ELSE BY SPEED QUEEN!!!
I have a commercial Speed Queen washer and dryer. Best ever. Front load washers are crap. Had a Maytag and a Whirlpool Duet. Both died within 5 years time. All plastic. The top load washers that don't have an agitator don't clean clothes.
Quiet running, cleans well, runs an average load in about 30 minutes. Spin is especially effective, resulting in shorter drying times as compared to our old Whirlpool. It has an upright agitator, a feature we wanted. Since Speed Queen has done away with the transmission, the agitator is fixed and the drum moves to swirl the clothes thru the water. It runs with a gentle whooshing sound instead of the old thrashing sound. So far, it has worked well. Our machine has analog controls, not the digital control panel. All the controls are marked understandably and are easy to use. My wife likes the delicate and hand wash cycles, something our old machine did not have.
Best washer and dryer ever made - by far superior to any other on the market!! Reliable, dependable product - have had for more than 4 years with no service required. Would purchase another Speed Queen before any other on the market.
I bought my Speed Queen TR5 in December, after having several lackluster Whirlpools over the years. Before I made my decision I looked at more washing machines than I'd like to admit - reading reviews, comparing features, watching YouTube videos of people reviewing and washing clothes in various machines. Really. My head felt like the spin cycle.
My wife & I had a top-load Sears Kenmore (manf. Whirlpool) Heavy Duty Series 60 washer we bought (along with the dryer) 2nd hand & used for 20+yrs, along the way replacing agitator dogs & 2 lid switches, and a couple of other things I can't even remember, keeping it going long after many would've given up & tossed it. Finally, sometime in 2017, it got to where it would cycle fully on only 1 of the main switch settings, so I had to decide whether to chance buying a new main switch at roughly $140 & installing it correctly, or take the plunge & get a new washer entirely.
My family is very active. My daughter rides horses and works in a barn so we have a lot of very dirty, smelly laundry, including horse blankets and saddle pads. When my Maytag broke I went to a small local store that had several brands of appliances for sale. I told the salesman our situation and said I did not want anything fancy, I just wanted a "workhorse" of a washer and dryer. He recommended Speed Queen. I had never heard of Speed Queen but I trusted him and made the purchase.
