Bought this piece of crap washer in August 2018. Since then I have had service on it 7 times and 2 complete drum and all the inside of tub replaced. Called Speed Queen and they said it was the technicians fault that it was not working right. So they sent another tub and tech replaced that too. This machine sounds like a jet airplane is taking off and you better have headphones when you do the wash. Why bother washing. Youre better off just wearing your clothes inside out as they would be cleaner than what this piece of $1000 crap would get it. Customer service specifically John in residential washers got his feelings hurt when I expressed my animus to him. He acted like a baby and threatened to hang up if I wasnt nice to him. I asked him to call Speedy Appliance and call me back when he did. I was told they had to get approval to call me back from his boss. My comment to him at Alliance was to ask him if he needed permission to use the phone. Please please DO NOT BUY THIS PRODUCT. I feel like throwing it on the highway with a huge sign of do not buy Speed Queen so everyone on the highway can see what a terrible product this is and let them know that Alliance who owns Speed Queen is a consumer nightmare. It appears that our dealer washed his hands of this situation. Why are they still in business if they cannot stand behind their product.

We bought a Speed Queen washer 4.5 years ago. We were told they can last up to 20 years. Imagine my surprise when it started leaking a week and a half ago. We had a certified tech out to look at it 3 days later. They opened it up and said it was shot and closed it back up. Apparently it had been leaking into the motor and transmission. We had no signs of water until 3 days prior to the service call. I called Speed Queen. They said only a 3 year warranty on motor but 15 year warranty in transmission. I was told that possibly parts could be sent out, but I would have to pay labor. Okay, if that’s what I needed to do. After several calls I received a crappy email from them on a Friday at 5 PM, saying the machine is 503 days past the warranty and no parts would be provided. Nothing about the 15 year warranty for the transmission. Their late email prevented me from obtaining a new washer at my local appliance company in a timely matter. I sent an email back saying I would file a complaint with the FTC for fraudulent claims about their product as well as my state attorney general’s office. We spent $900 on this and expected it to last. This is unacceptable on every level.

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.

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.

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.

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!

Speed Queen is the monster washer, it never fails, it handles large and small loads and frequent use, it is not fancy but it is sturdy and reliable and cleans in a much faster time. This washer is made for families with a lot of cleaning needs. These are the same washers that they use in car washes and laundromats, you will spend about 500 more but the machine is superior and saves you on the extended service plan.

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 got this washer because our previous cheap one stopped working after 3 years. We got the very expensive Speed Queen on the advice of the repair technician who didnt think our other relatively new washer was worth the cost of repairing it. So I asked for his advice on the best quality machine with the least problems and this brand was his recommendation. I am SO MAD we wasted so much money on this piece of garbage! Ive had it repaired 3 times already (owned it LESS THAN 1 YEAR) and Im going to have to have it repaired AGAIN because it is not draining water AGAIN. The repairman was literally here 2 days ago. It also doesnt get clothes very clean. DONT BUY IT. For reference I have a Model AWN43RSN115TW01 which is Product Code TR3000WN.

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.

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 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.

Bought matching set in April of 18 after much research. Was not aware of redesign which changed everything! Reviews were based on 17 models and older. This washer is loud... Filling, running, just loud! Does OK job of washing... Just OK. Failed to start several times. Technician says sometimes computer board goes to sleep... Thats nice. Paid way too much to have sub-par performance right away. Better honor that long warranty they have. Thought we had made a long term purchase. Dont take my word for it. Check the web and YouTube videos. Made in U.S.A. used to mean something. Too bad.

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.

My husband and I have been trying to get our dryer fixed for 2 months now.
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.

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.

When washing Speed Queen does an amazing job. Its super fast and has multiple settings for washing. The dryer dries fast and doesnt take a long time to dry. Its just a little too expensive for my taste. This washer and dryer have amazing settings and multiple settings when it comes to washing and drying. One of the favorite things about it is the length of time it takes to dry. The cost of the Speed Queen washer and dryer is on the more expensive side for me. It does a good job but I could find something cheaper that could do the same job just less money.

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.

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.

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.

I purchased a new Speed Queen Commercial Top Load washer and front load dryer in June 2016. Within a week I had service come out to try to fix the thumping in the dryer. Repairman came out 3 times and decided I needed a new drum! That helped but didnt really fix the noise. Today, Dec. 2019, the repairman told me my washer needs a new motor and some other parts, that is why it wont start or just cuts out. It trips the circuit too. Ive had clothes with water sitting in the machine for a week waiting on the repairman to get here to fix it. He had to install new roller bars in the dryer for the thumping, and I guess we will see how long that lasts. I am very disappointed in this set. I want my old Maytag set back that I had been using for 15 years with no issue, but the buyer of my house wanted them so I let them go. I should not have done that. Today I paid $157 and who knows what the washer repair will be.

I used my neighbors brand new Speed Queen top load washer they had just bought to try it out. I was shocked at how really poorly it washed my clothes. The dirt and stains on my clothing were all still there when they came out of their new 2018 washer. There was even some undissolved soap still on my clothes. I immediately went to the local laundromat, which I dread having to ever do and rewashed my clothes to get them clean and took them home to dry them. Needless to say, I will NOT be buying a speed queen when I replace mine. Amazing that Speed Queen would make something that this bad.

Quiet running, cleans well, runs an average load in about 30 minutes. Spin
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.

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.

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.

I purchased a new set of Speed Queens on 2/28/17. These are commercial grade Washers & Dryers. I have NEVER had a problem with other dryers and a friend raved about her new Speed Queen product so we decided to look into them. Since purchasing this “High Efficient” washer and dryer I have had to dry my clothes, towels, etc. twice each time. How efficient is that? I had a repairman come out. He told us the problem was in the vent. My husband had cleaned out the vent before he showed up so afterward he did it again and was given the ‘all clear’ from another service. The Speed Queen repairman came a second time. The only thing he could tell us was that there was nothing more he could do and it’s something we have to put up with. What??? Put Up With??? Not acceptable. Today we had another repairman come out to test the heating element. His answer was the heating element was not running as it should. He will order a new part. WHAT??? A new part on a brand new Dryer? Now I realize I said it was purchased in February and this is November but please take into consideration that we are gone from June-October so this dryer was not in use at that time. This is totally ridiculous. I can’t believe Speed Queen, a company that is supposed to be the Number 1 seller of Washers & Dryers, would not replace this unit. So wrong. I will NEVER buy another one.

I purchased this machine new in late June 2017. However, Monday, August 7, 2017 I put a load in the washer, it gets off-balance and I find my garage full of smoke. The repairman later informs me that a belt broke, wrapped itself around the pulley and broke that as well. Here I am 6 days later, brand new BROKEN washer in my garage next to the growing mountain of dirty linens and clothes. Speed Queen apparently feels little incentive to get the parts to us as the appliance store is still waiting for them to arrive. Wow, I would say this is exactly the circumstance I hoped to avoid by buying this so called reliable brand. Yet it couldnt even handle a small off balanced load. Never been so unhappy with a purchase.

I really don’t want to give this rating a star but I had to select at least one. My one star is under duress. This machine doesn’t even deserve one star. I bought a top load Speed Queen washing machine a year ago and used the “eco” setting which didn’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 “eco” setting is to comply with government regulations and I should not use it and I should always use the “auto fill”. 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... “Don’t use eco setting”. “Small loads won’t get clean if there’s not enough clothes in them”. “The machine is designed so that the clothes rubbing against each other will clean”. In the end after a year of frustration I bought an Electrolux and my clothes are clean again.

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.

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 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.

I really thought I was getting the best! I who worked for Maytag owned a 34 yr old Maytag had no problems. As many folks know, Maytag washers are not the same. And, like many other did some research. Seeing that this units normally cost around $1,000.00 for just the washer, was getting great price of $833.24, Yeah! and that a price is crazy too! When I installed it. (And Ive installed my Maytag and Dryer 34 yrs ago.) I can install appliances. I felt really good. I had it for 10 days and its looks and feels very solid! However, the washer stopped or would not go into a spin mode. Only the two blue lights would flash. Since, I tried calling Speed Queen (no one returned my call). I researched YouTube to see how to do a Force Spin. I also wanted to make sure that my drain line was clear and no clogs. (No Clogs.)The next day, I drove over to the Appliance Factory and Mattress Kingdom Store to explain my Dilemma. I wanted to bring it back and purchase a Classic model and pay the extra $200.00. (My wife thinks Im nuts to stay with Speed Queen.) We cant do that, unless Speed Queen approves the return. So, I thought, Well lets have Speed Queen send someone out to repair it. If they cant repair it, the store will take it back. The store sent out a repair man, and he looked professional. But, I could tell hes never worked on TR3003Wn Speed Queen. After he replaced the door switch, he called Speed Queen. They too thought it had to be clog, but he even said, no it has a good stream of flush water. Seeing that he replaced the door switch, and called to learn how to do a force spin, I thought it was fixed! I felt good.Two days later, at 7 Am. I did another wash. At 7:20 I watched the machine and it seemed like it was trying to go into a spin (click, click, click) And, then the lights (Wash/Spin) switched to blue and began to flash. So, I unplugged it (waited 30 sec.). Powered it back up and after 2 attempts was able to get into a force spin. What a pain in the **! So, I called the repair place again, and explained to the repair man what happened. I explained to the guy, the Store is willing to exchange the unit, provided it cant be fixed! So repairman, says hell will order a complete New Control Panel and New Pump. Thats where we are at as of 3/11.You should know that Im disputing my Credit Card Payment Via US Bank and hope theyll see our side and I plan to just drop off this Washing Machine back to Appliance Factory & Mattress Kingdom off where I bought it. My wife thinks Im nut dealing with this store. Look Lowes has Maytag and Whirpool for only $649.00. Im sure theyd replace it if you had a problem. My wife can not figure out how to put this unit into a spin mode. Too many procedures to follow to get the water out. Bottom line, do not buy this Speed Queen Model TR3003wn, However, if it has to be a Speed Queen, buy the TC5000 Classic. And, your wife and your life will a lot happier.

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 won’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.

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. It’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 it’s hard to even find out where the parts are since there’s no tracking number. Meanwhile every time I do a load of wash there’s white chunks of plastic in my clothes. Oh and I forgot to add the machine makes these horrible clanking noise as well. That’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.

Two weeks after I got the set the washer would randomly not turn on. If I let it sit for awhile it would start but this happened constantly. Turns out this is a known problem with some of the control panels. Why on earth would they continue to sell washers that they knew might not work! I have been waiting almost 3 weeks for a replacement part but no end in sight. If Speed Queen had any integrity they would give me a new machine. Quality workmanship and putting the customer first is a thing of the past.

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!!!

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.

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 had this same washer before they redesigned it and it was the best washer I had ever had, LOVED it! But the redesigned washer is awful. I hate to say that, but it is true. I have had it less than a year and the spin cycle doesnt work. Nor does it clean clothes! It may be easier on clothes, but who cares if they are dirty. It doesnt spin the water out and clothes have to be dried twice. How is this easier on them? I wish they would bring back the old washer! Since my expensive Speed Queen has been a total disappoint, I have purchased a new washer with no computer parts and an agitator that isnt just for looks!

Updated on 04/28/2021: We purchased a TR5 Speed Queen washer/dryer in June
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 I’m wondering if that’s the goal. I will never buy anything from Big Sandy or Speed Queen again. They don’t treat the customers right or back up their product. I’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 I’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 didn’t fix it. Now they’re saying it’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 I’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 I’m deeply regretting it. I will NEVER buy a product from this company again nor will I recommend them to anyone.

Spent a lot of time researching a new gas dryer as I discovered that Samsun
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.

I purchased a TC% washer in October 2019. A couple of weeks ago the machine smoked and had a burnt wire smell. Then the machines drum would not turn. Authorized technicians came out a found a broken belt which they say appeared dry rotted. Replaced the belt and left. 1st load after that the machine would not drain. Techs came back next day and replaced the pump, After replacing the pump I had them try to run a load and the machine would not fill with water. After consulting with Speed Queen authorized techs they then discovered the transmission was locked up and the control board was malfunctioning. Replacing all these parts on a machine that is less than 6 months old is not acceptable, Speed queen needs to replace the machine. Their tech department then tells me I need to go back to the distributor to see what they will do?? Why is that my job? The distributor tells me they cannot do anything unless Speed Queen authorizes them, leaving me in the middle. The machine is junk and the customer service is unacceptable as well.

I “inherited” the Speed Queen dryer with the bed and breakfast business
I “inherited” the Speed Queen dryer with the bed and breakfast business I bought 9 months ago. It’s commercial grade, heavy duty. It drives me to distraction! Despite buttoning up the duvet covers (I live in Australia) things still manage to get caught up inside and from time to time, the duvet cover even manages to get turned inside out, as do the pillow cases. How on earth can this happen??? And then there are the many, many times the sheets get twisted up like corkscrews. How can that happen?? I’ve had many dryers in my lifetime, none as expensive as this one, but every single one of them was 100% better than the Speed Queen. I HATE IT! Do not buy one! Rosie **, Australia.

Agitator is too slow - doesnt clean clothes. Not enough depth on the fins on agitator to move back and forth either.

After being told by several washer repair personnel, and being told by the appliance salesman, that if I wanted to buy the best available washer, even though it was much more expensive, to buy the Speed Queen that they had on display. (Model AWN43RSN115TW01 from Edwards Appliance in Depew, NY). Delivery was made exactly on time and after the installation was completed, the delivery man said load her up and enjoy your new washer. The first several loads were, I would say, average loads, but eventually I loaded her up with a large load of colored clothes. Washing process worked well and the tub drained for the most part but would not spin. Even after removing some of the wet clothes, there is still no spin cycle. I will contact Edwards, (whom I am not blaming for the problem) to send out a repairman. In my opinion, THIS SHOULD NOT BE HAPPENING TO A TOP-RATED, EXPENSIVE WASHER IN THE FIRST MONTH OF USE. I would caution anyone considering this Speed Queen washer. I will gladly change my rating if this situation improves.

We really love how simple this machine is to operate. I love that you can fill up the tub and soak stuff without it automatically getting rid of the water you have in the tub soon as you decide to shut off. The other type that are top-loading but are similar to front loaders they would always empty out the tub in. That isnt what I wanted to do. I love this machine because it works like the machines I grew up on where you can start and stop it wherever you want without it emptying. Does a great job washing our clothes no matter what cycle we use. Definitely would recommend.

They are dependable in getting the clothes washed and cleaned!!

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.

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.

Huge, clean laundromat that has all you need. The staff is extremely friendly and helpful. I highly recommend Speed Queen for your next laundry day. The dryers are huge and the washers cleaned clothes very well.

In April 2021 I bought the top model dryer of Speed Queen to match our new washing machine. I immediately had issues with the dryer taking too long to dry the clothes on lower settings or burning and melting the clothes on the regular and permanent press setting. The technician came out to look at it and said it is a common problem due to how the dryer heats up and the stainless steal vent in the back that get extremely hot so when your clothes brush against it it burns or melts the fabric and leaves an imprint of that vent or black marks on your items. It ruined a new set of sheets, several shirts and a couple of blankets. So my options are to dry clothes on delicate and take twice as long. So disappointed. This was an expensive dryer and the company does not back it up. I would think they would recognize this problem and come up with a solution. Or let me return it.

Wish I had not bought- washer foams out the drain every time- no, I am not using too much soap, no I am not using th wrong kind of soap (tried HE and regular in very small amounts), plumbing is not clogged, no issue with old Maytag for years... Also, you need an instruction guide to understand settings- seems like they just chose random words... Hey SpeedQueen- how about small medium large and cold warm hot... I know you are trying to get around Gov. efficiency standards, but whoever you pay to design these controls should be fired- Its not that difficult people.. Im sure it is made with more metal parts than most washers, but whats the point if it doesnt work? What a mess and a waste of $1,000.

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.

Researched washer and dryers for over 2 years while in the process of savin
Researched washer and dryers for over 2 years while in the process of saving for the new machines, saved a little longer and a little more because the decision was made to get the reputable, American made, commercial quality “Speed Queen” brand. Certain I was getting what I was paying for, boy was I wrong. We settled on the old school simple styled TC5 and DC5 dryer, the washer has been okay but is actually worse than our previous GE top loader as in you can’t fill it with clothes and soap as the machine fills with water, the cavity is smaller and the water level is shorter, not to mention sometimes stains are not being removed and forget about deodorant stains without scrubbing first compared to our old washer, also at times the clothes I put on the top are still on the top at the end of the wash cycle so it’s as if the agitator hadn’t worked.My biggest complaint and problem however has been the dryer, right from day one it took 2 cycles to dry loads. We purchased this set in October 2020 and by March 2021 the dryer is now taking 4 and sometimes 5 restarts to completely dry loads. When I first tried to claim my warranties, which is only online Speed Queens request page was down for maintenance for weeks and I finally had to get through to them via Facebook and email to send me my warranties. In March being fed up with the length and energy it takes to dry a load of clothes we contacted the store we purchased them from “Rochester Appliance” and they said they wouldn’t service us under warranty because we are a county over, then tried saying it was our dryer vent (no) and then gave us a number of another service man.We called him and he won’t service us under warranty because we didn’t buy them from him. Called Speed Queen and they too gave us contact numbers for servicemen that wouldn’t work under warranty or that just didn’t exist. So ended up taking it to Facebook where I’ve met up and actually joined a group of others who have had the same issues, and discovered from them another common problem we all share is a burnt, melty, sharp (from melting/burning) grate at the back of our dryers starting to rip and burn our laundry, so now we also have a potential fire hazard. And many others are experiencing their dryers running and never turning off, sometimes the whole time they’ve been at work, serious scary stuff and absolutely NO help, the warranties are essentially useless. I now despise this company and the dealer.

Ive had this Speed Queen front loader washer for almost ten years. It has never broken down or needed any parts replaced or repaired. I do at least two loads a day and some are heavy towels and sheets. If you want a reliable, energy efficient machine that takes in large loads and gets it done - this is the machine for you!

We LOVE our Speed Queen TR7 washer and dryer system. Dont be misled by negative reactions based on how it washes. This washer does not drag expensive clothing through the washer like machines of the past. Rather, it moves the water at high speed around the tub and through the garments. The end result is the best wash AND gentler on clothing. Weve had fantastic results. Heavily soiled clothes from yard work and gardening came out beautifully.The machine is very sophisticated with so many options for wash settings. Im enjoying the process of discovering how to wash different clothing in the best manner possible - which this machine does. Theres an extended soak option available along with a pre-wash cycle. You can even delay start the machine so that the washer sleeps until you want it to start. This allows for the ability to have the wash finish just as you arrive home which in turn eliminates standing wet clothing. Then just toss the clothes immediately in the dryer and the wash is done! (Not leaving the clothes in the dryer after they dry helps greatly reduce wrinkling.) Thorough cleaning PLUS preserving expensive clothing makes this the best washing system available.

I was shocked to see the low ratings on this site. I breed Golden Retrievers and to put it mildly I wash dirty stuff. From muddy dog towels to poopy puppy pads. Dirty Stuff! My Speed Queen (TC5000WN) does a wonderful job on my dirtiest loads. It washes faster than my old machines, (GE & Maytag) and has an option for a larger fill. It is a workhorse, which is what I want in a washing machine. I had an LG Front Load washer and hated it! You cannot properly soak anything, and I was constantly cleaning the rubber gasket to keep it from smelling.

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.

Prior to purchasing this Speed Queen AFNE9B-AWo1 Front Load Washing Machine
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 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 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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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 material…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 “balancer!” Clothes go out of balance constantly & washer makes a horrible, loud pounding sound & hops 6” 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 “stick” where you want them! Same with dryer….very confusing on how to get it to just dry. It’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!

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.

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.

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!

I bought my Speed Queen Washer and Dryer (TR5) in August 1919 and I’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, it’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 don’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!

We had a Kenmore washer for over 25 years, but had to leave it in the house
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.
