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.

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 can choose the amount of water I need for the size of laundry I’m washing. It cleans a very large or a small delicate load equally! It is quiet and very user friendly. And best of all, it’s faster than the average washer even when I use the twice rinse cycle.

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.

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.

Our Maytag dryer died & they could no longer get a circuit board for it
Our Maytag dryer died & they could no longer get a circuit board for it. It was the 2nd time in 5 years to need service. We had the top of a line Maytag washer & dryer. I asked the repairperson what brand he would recommend & he stated SPEED QUEEN. He said they cost more but are very well built. They are the same ones in laundromats. I read the reviews & found the TC5 model. This is an old school, simple controls & will last 20 years washing machine. We bought the set - Washer & Dryer. The appliance person mentioned they are hard to keep in stock because of their reputation.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Purchased a washing machine in September 2020. Upon the first use, the machine made this horrible annoying knocking noise. It is now February 2021 and after multiple service calls, we still have this machine with its horrible annoying knocking noise! A local technician was just here yet again today, and was even on the phone with Speed Queen for over an hour trying to get help to repair it, and still nothing. No one seems to know what is causing the noise, or how to fix it. Wouldnt it make sense to replace the machine? Perhaps its defective? Or am I just suppose to take multiple more days off work to accommodate technicians until they get it fixed?

We’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, that’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!!!

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.

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.

I love this washer. It is the same washer they put in coin operator cleaners. The drum is made of steel and takes a lot of heavy clothes. I am amazed at how quiet it is. What I like best is that if I forget to add something, I can open the top and add it. Many washers lock the door once it starts. This washer is the only one made totally in the USA and comes with a three year guarantee. I have heard people say that their Speed Queen has lasted the 20 or more years.

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.

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 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.

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.

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.

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.

Purchased a Speed Queen washer & dryer from Gerrits Appliance in Grand Rapids Michigan. Both appliances have all of these light brown spots on them. Gerrits came out once to clean them but they only returned. Have been trying to get Speed Queen/Gerrits to take them back to no avail. Also, when drying clothes when you open the dryer door the lint gets all over the clothes. SQ sent me something but I already had one which does not work. Also, the timers are so quiet you cannot hear them when the cycle is done on either the washer or dryer. I have never had such poor service from either place, but especially SQ. I spoke with a man by the name of John and he did absolutely nothing. I then left two messages for him but he never returned my calls. I would not buy another SQ. Both appliances and customer service are worthless. Be very careful before you buy.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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 today’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.

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 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.

We bought this washer January 18, 2021. Have had the repair man out 5 times, they have replaced the lid lock, the main board, and a part in the back of the machine and it still does not work! I wanted a speed queen and got a horrible product!! We have tried to call the number for support and it keeps hanging up on us or the call just won’t go through. PLEASE DONT WASTE YOUR MONEY ON SPEED QUEEN PRODUCTS! They won’t answer the phone so I’m assuming we wasted over a thousand dollars!

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.

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 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.

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.

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.

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.

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!!!

Purchased a pair of coin-operated commercial washer and dryers both back in
Purchased a pair of coin-operated commercial washer and dryers both back in 2016 and had to return both after the washer started giving away free washes. All you had to do was press the button and it would start up again without coins. Service operators came out repeatedly until the west coast regional manager for Speed Queen came out: the mother board was even entirely replaced and still the washer would give away free wash. The dryer started out with a swishing noise with each revolution and would not stop. The entire drum was removed and replaced and the same thing repeated itself. It was rubbing somewhere but the service and SQ rep couldnt figure it out. Both machines were returned.Fast forward, November 2019 and my son buys Speed Queen washer and dryer hoping for the best. The washer fills with hot water to about 1/8 of the drum and then stops. Then the cold water fills the drum and by the time the wash starts, its not a hot wash, it is barely a warm wash. The hot water is shutting off too soon. And the dryer is doing the same thing again, it is rubbing somewhere as it makes it revolution. WHAT IS THE MATTER WITH ALLIANCE/Speed Queen products?!?! There seems to be no quality control. These are brand new machines with problems already out of the manufacturing company and theyre brand new? We are not pleased with these machines at all.

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.

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!

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 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 Speed Queen washer fall 2020 based on its stellar reputation. I was sorely mistaken. I’ve had the tide pods not devolve and clothes come out with dirt still on them—-dirt —like something as simple as milk that should have easily washed out. Someone on these reviews correctly called the wash cycle a “soothing bath.” The drum does not agitate. Often the clothes are weakly spun and too wet for the dryer. The lid lock is a complete nuisance. They put that on there so you can’t see how feeble the agitation cycle is! The plastic bleach dispenser discolored after 1 month of use. The cycles are awful and LONG, which wouldn’t be bad if it were doing something. I have to agree with Every one-star review on here—HEED THE WARNING! The machine makes doing laundry an even worse task than it is. SHAME ON YOU SPEED QUEEN...SHAME SHAME SHAME...OR SHAM SHAM SHAM!

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.

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.

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.

This time, 6 weeks after we installed it, the dryer electric panel stop working.

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.

We bought our Speed Queen washer & dryer in 2016. We were looking for something that would last & be durable. Even though the speed queen was smaller than other washers we thought the durability would be worth doing smaller loads. We were wrong! We have had numerous issues. In the beginning we would call customer support with no help. We needed to get a technician. We called several places, but only certain people work on them. I finally found a ace close, but because I did not buy it from them they would not repair it.The washer constantly leaks. Socks are constantly getting stuck in the rubber ring where it’s suppose to drain water. It’s disgusting! When you pull them out they are soaking wet & grimy. The little holes where the water drains get clogged so they have to be cleaned out constantly. There is an odor that lingers. We have tried to switch detergent to see if it helps which it does not. You can’t do many towels or blankets because it will throw an error code & water won’t drain. You have to unplug it to reset it. This usually leads to flipping the breaker because can’t get it pulled out to unplug it.The dryer is supposed to have an auto shut off when the clothes are dry, but it does not work. I was told to get it fixed I would have to pull it out in a regular basis & reset the auto sensor. Sometimes the clothes are dry & sometimes they are still damp. It takes over an hour to dry a normal load of clothes. Please don’t make the same mistake we did. Buy something else, anything else! A wash board would be better.

I couldnt tell have even been through a wash cycle, plus it’s noisy. There are even times when globs of the detergent have been left on the clothing. Not sure about the previous history of Speed Queen (which apparently was great at one time) as some have mentioned a contrast between older and newer versions. Our old front load Maytag cleaned just fine. Wouldn’t recommend but if you insist, you can buy mine (humor).

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.

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.

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!

I inherited my dryer with my house 22 years ago, and I love its simplicity and reliability. However, its starting to need replacing. Now, sometimes a piece will get caught in the exhaust filter now, and I doubt that there will be replacement parts available for this antique. I like its simple dial for time and/or cycle, clothes get dry, and the lint trap is in the front and very easy to clean out. I also like that its a gas dryer and not an electric. I wish that I had a separate lower heat setting for delicates - the air-only setting gets nothing dry. Other than that I wouldnt change a thing, and when I get a new dryer, I will definitely get another Speed Queen.

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.

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.

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.

After buying washers from big-box stores and poor service/quality, I elected to purchase a 2018 top load washer from Speed Queen. Decided to support products made in USA and a brand known for quality and integrity. Within 2 weeks after purchase of new washer, it would not turn on. Started keeping log of events and now (week later) the same occurrence. It has been reported there are known issues with control panel and I am very disappointed that Speed Queen would sell washers under this circumstance. I only hope that I can get a repair or a refund.

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 bought the SpeedQueen Commercial Heavy - Duty grade Washer (AWNE82SP113T
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 my set 1-8-18, was told by the salesman this set is laundry mat quality and it’s backed by a 10 yr warranty. If it breaks Speed Queen will have a repairman in your house the next day. I said man that’s good, the set was pricey but I liked the warranty. Well, as usual that turned out to be horse **, the dryer went out. I called Speed Queen and was told, “We don’t fix nothing.” We look for somebody local to fix. Speed Queen should pay me the 3000, I have in their overpriced fake warranty that they are selling.

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!!

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.

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 didnt 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 dont 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 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.

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.

TR3 and DR3 washer and dryer. Told the sale man we are farmers and get pretty dirty at times. He said Speed Queen without a doubt, which was the most expensive. Well it cant clean worth a **. Found out the drum and agitator are one and locked together, so no agitating. Just spins the drum back a forth. My pant legs come out dirty in the folds. Went as far as stapling, yes stapling the fold open and re-washing again. I find more dirt in the lint trap of the dryer then lint itself. Speed queen calls it gentle I call it **. Replaced it with a used dual agitator washing machine for 1/5th the cost and now just lint in the dryer and way, way, way cleaner clothes. The dryer has needed to be serviced twice with all this being less then a year old. Things get caught between the spinning drum and the seal and some load sensor turns the dryer off. Feel completely ripped off. Now Im going to sell it cheap and honestly cause cant stand seeing it sitting there unused.

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!

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 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 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!

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.

I bought a stackable Speed Queen after reading about the reliability and lo
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

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.

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.
