Speed Queen Appliances
No other laundry equipment is built tougher to last longer. And their machines are only the beginning. From their dedicated workforce to their top-rated distribution partners, no one is committed to clean like 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!
We purchased the TR5003WN washer and dryer only seven months ago and the washer has already broken down three times and the dryer has also broken down. To make matters worse, the parts they need to fix these machines are on back order indefinitely so we are just without the use of a washer and dryer even though we are under warranty. Speed Queen via their retail partner has been non-responsive in helping to fix these ongoing issues. This is the worst buying experience, don’t go with speed queen.
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 used a Speed Queen triple load washer at the laundromat. I think they work well and takes about 25 minutes to wash everything. I like the size of it. I can fit a lot of clothes in the triple size washing machine, and it seems like it holds a good amount of clothes. I try to put as much stuff as possible in there so I dont have to pay as much money. But when its full it doesnt seem to want to wash all the clothes.
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.
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!
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.
Our Speed Queen washer and dryer are separate units, bought at different times (washer 4 yrs, dryer 2 yrs). Both very ample capacity, perform well, and have been reliable so far. The only negative thing is they are more expensive than many other brands, but maybe they will last longer, too.
Tried to wash clothes this week, burning smell is coming from washer. Does not spin. Machine is 4 years old. Bitter Neumann tells me it is no longer under warranty. Warranty should be at least 5 years for this kind of problem. Disappointed. Poor design. Will not buy another Speed Queen. Machine is extremely heavy and very hard to take up and down stairs.
I 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.
It has been 4 weeks and still have no working machine. I bought it in 2015 and have had no trouble with it until now. It seems it is impossible to get parts and when Kettle Moraine Appliance gets the parts they are shipped wrong or just cant get them. Not sure who is to blame but going to the laundry when there is a perfectly good washer right here in the house is frustrating and expensive. Machine works good, just POOR service and no help from either company. Would I buy another Speed Queen, NEVER.
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.
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 live in a remote area and have difficulty getting service personnel to come to my location. After reading so many reviews of computer boards failing, mold problems with front loaders, and front loaders failing to clean, I knew I wanted a RELIABLE washer that CLEANED. Speed Queens have an excellent reliability record. Although my washer is only 3 years old and maybe old school with no digital computer boards, it does a great job cleaning.
My Speed Queen is built like a tank and has a 10 year warranty. Shes definitely speedy and has the usual options. She has a Large stainless top loading tank. I liked her so much I bought the dryer as well which has the same warranty.
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.
We bought this because it was big and the salesman said it was reliable and it fit our budget. So far so good. It seems to do a pretty good job cleaning our clothes. Our old washer and dryer were Maytag and they lasted 22 years and cleaned well. At the time we were buying new ones we needed something less expensive. They seem to be doing a good job.
I could not be more disappointed in an appliance, and Ive been buying them for my home for over 40 years. We had our Speed Queen dryer one month (!) and it stopped working. Cracked terminal block. Part not in stock! Long wait for repair.
Purchased Speed Queen washer and dryer from Orvilles in Buffalo New York. 4 years later the heating element stopped working. 10 day lead time for part and half the cost of the dryer. Will never purchase a speed queen again, piece of junk.
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.
We bought the Speed Queen front load washer and dryer in the fall of 2017. Its now almost a year later and we are absolutely as pleased as is humanly possible with them. The washer is fast and quiet and the dryer does an amazing job of drying. Doing laundry has never gone this fast! Zero problems, using less detergent than ever and saving $$$. Thank you Speed Queen!
We bought our Speed Queen washer (TR3000WN) through Amazon in Oct. 2016. This is the old school model; not computerized. Formerly we went through several brands and models of different big-name washers, some of which were rather expensive, and most of which lasted only a few years at best. While many of the reviews of the newer Speed Queens seem to indicate that the brand is no longer as good as it once was, I can attest that so far ours has been WONDERFUL. IT WASHES THE CLOTHES. We live on a farm and have lots of dirt. The Speed Queen does not play around, but washes the clothes quickly and gets them clean. Our former eco-friendly washer took FOREVER and still did not do as good a job. I recommend this particular model of Speed Queen, if you can find one.
Bought it yesterday at the largest hardware stores in Ohio... Hartville Hardware, after our front loader developed a motor board problem and didnt want to put any more $$ into it... Picked it up and dropped off our old one - nice to not have to worry about getting rid of it!!! Installation was easy - hose gaskets included - mesh screen for the inlet and standard for the machine attachment... no leaks - thats rare for me!!! Seven loads - various sizes - all washed very well - stains out (we have a 10 year-old so we do Spray-N-wash - have since she was 1... LOL) several pair of jeans along with towels in a load - no problem... Bought it on the recommendation of the service tech who was looking at the front loader... After reading all the comments on here - will give an update in six months... Thanks to all of you for your comments!!!!
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.
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 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!
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.
The Speed Queen washer that we purchased at Warners Stellian, is model #AWN432SP113TWD4. Had repair person out 3 times due to water on floor after washing. Unable to determine problem. Problem continues daily, leaking water on rugs and shoes. Contacted Warners Stellian and they want their repair person coming out a 4th time. Company will not issued a new washer due to daily leaking from this Speed Queen washer.
We purchased a Speed Queen washer and dryer for our new home in December 2017. I was surprised to see that were making these for home use as I used to work for a man who had several commercial washing centers in Philadelphia. These were the best machines ever. Now after using this for a few months it takes so long to dry towels and when washing new towels this week they came out with all kinds of pulled loops on towels, hand towels and washcloths. Very disappointed with this dryer. Washer also does not have a longer time to wash. Only 29 minutes max for heavy duty. What’s up with that?
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.
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.
I love Speed Queen. I like all the features. They have advanced in the technology of the world today. They are one of the oldest and new brands of all times. I can wash any size load and the washer and dryer adjust itself to whatever capacity that I have in them. I can never over load or under load using this brand. They have come a long way. I love the fact that it seems like it knows the level of clean that I require. My kids and husband used these items and they are very please each and every time they use it.
My mother normally used the Speed Queen ringer washer to wash clothes for 7 people on a regular basis and there were no problems with it as I recall. She was hospitalized for a while and that was when I used it when I was 18 years old -- Im now 65. It was a pretty basic ringer washer, but its features were fine at the time because me and my family lived on a small farm in the country. There really wasnt space for what was referred to back then as an automatic washer. So the ringer washer suited fine. The main features were a stainless-steel tub and the ringer. It was of course portable (on wheels).
Bought two new speed queen dryers. Both starter buttons are defective. After time button came apart inside. Tried to repair, but came apart once again. Now have it put together with plastic wire ties.
May 2021 bought a brand new washer and dryer Speed Queen. Did a read a reviews and heard how great it is. Washer won’t even get a little dirt out. I washed twice and still dirty. Try so many times to called Customer Service. Cannot get a hold of no one. Only auto play of computer voice telling you to hold on. Nobody ever answer t by e called of mine. Horrible customer service. I regret buying Speed Queen! I paid $1,000 for washer alone. I just lost $1,000 down the drain! I’m so mad and sad. DO NOT BUY SPEED QUEEN!!! Good getting a hold of customer service!!!
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 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.
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.
We researched on Consumer Reports, as well as online, to find the best washing machine for our needs - top loader agitator, gentle on clothes, extra spin, easy to use. The Speed Queen TR5 seemed to fit the bill. It comes at a hefty price tag but the 10-year warranty, along with a built-in surge protector was very appealing. Purchased it 11/2019.PROS: if you want a user friendly machine without a bunch of digital malarky, this is it. If you prefer an old-fashioned, simple look, this is it. If you need a top-loader agitator that wont chew up your clothes, consider the TR5. If you like a 45-minute cycle, youve got it. If HE is important, its here. If all you need is small, medium, large loads, check it out. Is a great warranty, excellent reliability and made in the USA important? Speed Queen provides. CONS: if you want to throw in those extra socks, the lid lock does not make it easy. You need to pause the machine, wait for the click, toss in extra item/close and press start again. I was told it was only locked during the spin cycle but thats not true.Speaking of spin cycle, the TR5 doesnt spin strong enough, so I have to do an extra spin (no matter if perm press or heavy duty) and even then, it still feels wetter than my previous GE washer. And the slow agitation is good for the clothes but perhaps not so great in cleaning. Thank god were not miners. The machine is a little noisy.CR did not rank the Speed Queen well (it tested the TR7) and normally I would not even consider anything with such a low score but it gave very high scores in nearly everything except cleaning..and so many other washers had at least something that wasnt rated well. So...our previous GE was a much better washer all-in-all and if I was to grade our Speed Queen TR5 today, it would be a C+.
We 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.
2018 washer redesign has destroyed a once-great brand. Agree with all the other reviewers who are horrified at Speed Queens stupidity in turning their backs on their many years of embracing the traditional agitator washing machine design. Had a new model for a couple days and sent it back. Was lucky to find an old 2017 model. Its sad to see a great thing end. What were they thinking?
Speed Queen was front loading and very modern looking, and worked very well. My clothes were very clean and soft. I liked it but it had a lot of different settings which I didnt understand. But for someone who cares it would be a dream to use. I wish it had a just wash the stuff mode. For someone who doesnt get too involved, it would be very confusing to use. Otherwise everything was great.
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.
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 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.
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.
Purchased our Speed Queen top load washing machine based on reviews and the excellent recommendation from our expert neighborhood appliance store. This has been the worst purchase. I agree with the other reviews. Great - wash cycle is only 30 minutes but the clothes are not clean which is unacceptable. I have been left with smelly kids clothing, stains and loads. 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).
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.
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.
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.
Thought I was buying a quality product, it definitely is not! Was told it will last 25 years. Wrong! Lucky if it makes it to six. Had nothing but problems with this Speed Queen Dryer since we purchased it in 2014. The thermal fuse 4 times, the thermostat, the timer. It doesnt dry clothes. Had it fixed 3 times in the last few months. Twice within 10 days and now it isnt drying my clothes again. Sick of this piece of crap. Do not buy a Speed Queen nothing but trouble!!
Since day one the speed queen has had issues. Lately it stops all lights flashing. Takes repairman a week then another week for parts. Wash one load without issue then it start yet again. The lid lock was said to be issue last time but clearly has more issues. Big mistake purchase.
The Speed Queen is built to last, and doesn’t have all the options that you never use. The machine does a great job washing your clothes and spin drying them. It’s top loading and has a agitator which I like very much.
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.
Not happy with the washer. Purchased to replace LG that was destroyed when my home burned during the N. Calif wild fires. Completely new home and just moved in. The washer has suds coming up the Drain, stand pipe during the spin cycle which overflow down the wall and onto the floor. The rubber adapter supplied to defuse this problem lessens but does not eliminate it. Online search shows this is a common problem with this washer as does the fact that Speed Queen has developed a adapter to defuse the suds problem. Unfortunately the solution is inadequate. Im considering taking the 2K loss paid for the washer and dryer to save on home repairs down the road. My suggestion is to look elsewhere for your washer.
I have used this washer for over a year. The tub barely fills to 2/3 and I was told by customer service this is because of government regulations. Very annoying if you would like to wash what is normally considered a full load. My MAIN COMPLAINT is the problem I have with bedsheets becoming literally knotted and twisted so badly that I must continually monitor my washer as if a naughty child! I’m over babysitting my washer.I have tried so many techniques when washing bedsheets, one at a time with small miscellaneous clothing or pillowcases, a top and bottom sheet with a few other items. Ninety percent of the time I’m untangling sopping wet clothes so they will at least be clean, as well as monitoring the rinse cycle. Has anyone found an answer for this problem?
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 at Tasco Brampton in 2018 and its broken down 3 times. Under warranty repairs take at least 3 days for the repair technician to contact me and then over a week to actually attempt to repair. Will never deal with tasco or speed queen ever again.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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!
We purchased new washer and dryer from Speed Queen base on Old School performance recommendations. The washer seems to get overloaded when there are 2 or more pairs of jeans in the load being laundered.
I have a commercial Speed Queen washer and dryer. Best ever. Front load washers are crap. Had a Maytag and a Whirlpool Duet. Both died within 5 years time. All plastic. The top load washers that don't have an agitator don't clean clothes.
Bought above S Queen washer and dryer almost five years at the strong suggestion of the appliance store owner here in Tucson. AZ. Almost five years later we are in the midst of renovation from water damage in the walls in our utility room, kitchen, guest bedroom. How long has the washer been spewing suds out of the washer drain? No answer, quiet and continual lethal damage sums it up.Three plumbers verify our house plumbing is A OK! Speed Queen appliance service manager and general manager defend the washer; problem is not the washer they say. One month of chaos from an overflowing drain pipe and still torn up. I hope other Speed Queen owners never experience this situation caused by “a top model washing machine”
My family is very active. My daughter rides horses and works in a barn so we have a lot of very dirty, smelly laundry, including horse blankets and saddle pads. When my Maytag broke I went to a small local store that had several brands of appliances for sale. I told the salesman our situation and said I did not want anything fancy, I just wanted a "workhorse" of a washer and dryer. He recommended Speed Queen. I had never heard of Speed Queen but I trusted him and made the purchase.
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.
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.
I wanted a heavy duty dryer and bought this on the recommendation of the salesman. It was professionally installed by the dealer who confirmed proper ventilation. Drying takes at least one hour per load. The sensor cycles do not work. The clothes are still damp even when set to dry. After talking to the manufacturers representative, the repairman said the dryer is functioning properly.I contacted the company who wrote, During the first 6 minutes of the cycle the machine takes readings of how wet the load is. During this time the control calculates how much time will be needed to dry the load. It also takes into account, with the current options selected, the average of the last 5 loads with the same settings selected. The time will vary with load size, type of fabric, amount of moisture in the load, air flow and the laundry room environment. After the initial 6 minutes when the time is calculated, the machine then runs for that amount of time.In other words, the sensor does not sense the present load but stops at some predicted time regardless of the dryness of the load. Further, the representative said only delicates should be dried on the delicate setting. Jeans, sweaters, and other items that would shrink at high temperature are not delicates. He suggested drying them on the timer on low temperature. While this does work, it means the sensor settings are useless.
I “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.
This washer was bought in November 2019 and started malfunctioning in June 2020. It refused to go to the rinse cycle. After several calls to Speed Queen they said it needed repair and recommended a repair service. After over 4 months of waiting, the motor has been replace along with a main computer board and still the machine wont work. they are coming to replace a second computer board today. thats three parts being replaced in a machine that is under a year old. Ive had washers over a decade old that never needed parts replaced. Speed queen refuses to replace the machine. Their warranty only covers repairs, not replacements. Even if its made in America its still garbage and a lemon that should never have made it to a showroom. This is what happens when sales top quality control. its the most expensive machine Ive ever owned and the absolute worst. Stick with Samsung, Whirlpool, anything other than Speed Queen. Dont believe the hype and advertising.
After doing much research I wanted a modern somewhat efficient washing machine but with better build quality and durability than the big box stores. I love the fact that the new washing action is easier on my clothes. Some people are having a hard time with that, but this is the future. Sure the washing machines in the 70s lasted forever BUT they beat up clothes, cleaned yes, but beat up in the process. I also like the fact that they removed the transmission, one less failure point in the future. This is also the most quiet washing machine Ive ever experienced. Looking forward to getting many years of service from this unit.
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.
Updated on 10/06/2020: Hello, this is an update to my first review, July 2020, after three washers in a week, (all had a loose control panel) then told by manufacturer to schedule a repair date (for the new washer), this is the rest of the story, to quote Paul **... so in addition to the control panel being loose, the tub was always tilted and setting off the switches for unbalanced load. As I mentioned in the first review, I will be wondering what else will go wrong...turns out the tub was always tilted because the wrong type of springs were installed when built (green v.s. blue, if that helps anyone). They have been replaced. So the new machine was delivered july-23-2020 and finally fixed on sept 5, 2020.... or until something happens for being poorly assembled / built.Original Review: I purchased a Speed Queen washing machine, tr5003wn, a month ago. There was a 3 week back-log for delivery. In the past week, I have had 3 of these machines. On the first one delivered, the control board, the part with all the knobs was very loose and wiggled. I called the appliance company, they sent a replacement 4 days later, out of the box, the second one, same problem, I said take it back. The 3rd one, delivered today, July 28, 2020, has the same issue but not as severe, so I kept it. I called speed queen, they said call for a repair, but I will need to register it online first, then schedule a repair. I was told that management will be informed and call the factory. My concern is, what else was not screwed/bolted together properly? Now left wondering what else will go wrong? A leak, a loose wire to cause a fire or blow a fuse? Whats the point of buying made in America, when built like, made in China, ggrrrrrr. There was nothing wrong with the way machines were built 20 years ago. I miss my old Fisher & Paykel, but now they are owned by China. I realize companies had a down-time due to covid, and companies are trying to build things so fast and get them out the door for a back log of orders, someone forgot to tighten down the screws? I purchased this brand based on reading a lot of reviews, hoping to get machine that will last many years, now I will just wonder/worry, for how many years, when will something go wrong with this machine. :-(
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 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.
We have had both the washer and dryer for seven years with no problems or service calls. Ten year guarantee on the washer is comforting and they both perform at a quality level. The only complaint we have is that the washer does not have a buzzer, but the dryer does.
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.
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 bought my Speed Queen TR5 in December, after having several lackluster Whirlpools over the years. Before I made my decision I looked at more washing machines than I'd like to admit - reading reviews, comparing features, watching YouTube videos of people reviewing and washing clothes in various machines. Really. My head felt like the spin cycle.
I purchased a New Speed Queen Electronic Front Load Washer and matching dryer in 12/16. I have had problems with them since day 1. The washer is not wringing out the clothes causing issues with the dryer. The washer drops fabric softener into the wash cycle so the clothes do not come out soft. I have had 8 service calls so far and they have fixed NOTHING! I am getting ready to contact the Attorney Generals Office to see what can be done. This washer is supposed to last for 25 years and be fully warrantied for 5. I am so unhappy with Speed Queen and Freds Appliance who sold me this JUNK.
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.
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.
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.
I am less than impressed with my Speed Queen washing machine. It was not cheap and it should of been better engineered, especially the electric part of it. It blows the breaker seven times, every load and it pisses me off. It is out of warranty and the customer service is a joke. What happened to the days when a machine lasted forever. This isn’t cool and I bought an American made appliance intentionally. Think twice, Suzanne.
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!
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?
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.
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.
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.
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.
Best Washer I have ever owned. Washes in 30 min. You can open the lid without pausing the washer. It does not lock!! YAY!! High end in pricing but worth every dime, great warranty. Covers everything. Heavy Duty! These are the kind of washers in laundromat so you know they are durable.
Purchased a matched set Speed Queen washer/dryer in June of 2013. We experienced burning smells from the dryer from day one, but really didnt think much of it. Finally, in September of 2017, the smell got really bad so we called the repairman. When he opened it up, he couldnt believe the mess he saw inside. The machine had bad connectors from day one and they had finally gotten to the point where they burned so badly inside, they almost started a fire. The repairman said it was a manufacturer defect and to contact the company. We did, and they did nothing. They didnt even apologize that they almost burned our house down. Considering I frequently run the dryer during the night, a fire could have easily started while we were sleeping. I am stunned by the lack of customer service and am afraid to continue using the unit. The washing machine has made a noise from day one, as well, but the repairman cannot figure out where its coming from. I am so upset that all my long research to find the best, longest lasting machines still turned up junk.
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 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 Speed Queen washing machine works great! My clothes come out much cleaner than with the last two washers I used. The Speed Queen dryer is fine. I wish it had a moisture sensor to prevent me from over drying my clothes. They could really use a styling makeover for those people who care about the appearance of their washer/dryer.
I 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.
