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.

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.

I had a Speed Queen for many years and I was very happy with its performance. It didnt spin too long like some washers do but it still spun out good. It lasted a good many years without any problems. My Speed Queen washer had just one feature that I really liked and that was the permanent press feature so clothes wouldnt wrinkle. Best as I can tell it would wash in warm and rinse in cold or something to that effect. Its transmission worked fine the entire time I had it.

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+.

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.

Until now, I had been happy with my Speed Queen Washer. It is simple to use and does an okay job cleaning my clothes. However, after just three years of use, one of the plastic arms on the agitator inside the tub broke off after washing three pairs of jeans and a handful of shirts. Upon closer examination, I noticed that the plastic used for the arms is rather thin and flimsy, certainly not the heavy duty commercial quality that I paid a premium price for. I called Speed Queen and was told that the part wasnt under warranty which rather surprised me. So buyer beware.

I purchased 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 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 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

I paid a little more, but I LOVE my Speed Queen. It's reliable, I can wash a big load and it gets my clothes clean - it fills up with water. The washer I had before this one was a "water saver", filling up only about half way. My clothes didn't smell clean, so I started washing only half a load at a time. Not much on energy savings, uh?

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.

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.

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.

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).

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!

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 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!!

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.

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

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

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.

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.

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 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?

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!

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).

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!

Purchased a matched set Speed Queen washer/dryer in June of 2013. We experienced burning smells from the dryer from day one, but really didnt think much of it. Finally, in September of 2017, the smell got really bad so we called the repairman. When he opened it up, he couldnt believe the mess he saw inside. The machine had bad connectors from day one and they had finally gotten to the point where they burned so badly inside, they almost started a fire. The repairman said it was a manufacturer defect and to contact the company. We did, and they did nothing. They didnt even apologize that they almost burned our house down. Considering I frequently run the dryer during the night, a fire could have easily started while we were sleeping. I am stunned by the lack of customer service and am afraid to continue using the unit. The washing machine has made a noise from day one, as well, but the repairman cannot figure out where its coming from. I am so upset that all my long research to find the best, longest lasting machines still turned up junk.

We’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!!!

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?

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.

Very first use of this dryer with only a light, partial load, and either the belt or the pulley broke! Actually, for the record, not VERY first use, as I tried it briefly after installing it with no load just to make sure all was well. It survived that initial test, but not with clothes in it. Very disappointed. The seller is going to make it good, but thats besides the point. For $950 I expect a product to actually work.

I 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.

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 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.

I purchased a Speed Queen washer and dryer set costing $1500. Reviews were great and thats how I made my choice. After installing the dryer, it never worked - would shut off after 3 minutes. After calls to the retailer and to Speed Queen, I was given, by Speed Queen, the names of 4 service technicians to call to service the dryer, all of whom refused. Speed Queen referred me back to the retailer and said to tell the retailer to contact their distributor. The distributor said they do not offer repair service. The retailer replaced the dryer. New dryer works great. I used the washer 4 times. The 4th time it would not agitate, spin or empty the water. I had to wring out the load of laundry by hand and suck the standing water out with a shop vac, taking about 12 trips to empty it. I am 67 years old-this was not pleasant.Again Speed Queen was contacted, this time by the retailer. Again SQ customer service referred the retailer to the same service technicians who again refused once they found out I live outside their city. Again SQ told the retailer. It would not authorize replacement and honor the SQ warranty which accompanied my washer and dryer. Why is a manufacturers warranty not the responsibility of the manufacturer? $1500 and at this point all I have is a working dryer. This is going all over social media if Speed Queen fails to come through and honor the warranty on this product. This is extremely poor customer service.

I love my washer Model # AWN412SP111TW01. It washes great and it is much better than the ones with all the fancy technology features on them. This washer operates more like the washers I used to have and it washes in an appropriate length of time. I love the fact that this washer does not have the feature that locks your lid when you start your wash. My washer is more like the way washers used to be built years ago and not just some fancy technology that quits working right after your warranty goes out. The only thing that could be improved is that the water could be spun out a little more so that the clothes are not quite as damp when the wash cycle is over. This isnt really a problem but just a preference for me.

We 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.

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.

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

I know a lot of people start by saying this but, I RARELY write reviews. Good or bad. After becoming frustrated with our Whirlpool Cabrio washers lack of cleaning ability I took the advice of our repairman and purchased a SET of Speed Queens washer and dryer. That was less than 8 months ago. Didnt even NEED the dryer but hey Get the matching set. Speed Queen has always had an impeccable reputation for quality and reliability. Short story about the washer- Speed Queen washer does average to poor at cleaning on any temperature. Control knobs are basic and there is no way of telling how long your cycle will take. I mean NONE. Long story on the dryer- After just a few weeks the dryer knob was not lining up correctly with the corresponding cycle and it was taking a minimum of 2 full cycles to dry most anything. I was literally guessing where I was in a cycle and hoping for the best. The dials are all made of cheap plastic (unlike their older, more reliable models) I have now had the same knob, timer and other parts replaced FOUR TIMES. The last time was one week ago and it has already happened again! FIVE TIMES in 8 months. I am beyond frustrated. Hence my review. I called the only number I can find for Speed Queen that seems to relate to customer service. I was told that to get a replacement machine I had to go to the dealer and not through Speed Queen. No one wants to take responsibility for an obviously defective machine.

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

I 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.

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!

I recently purchased a 2020 Speed Queen top load washer and matching gas dryer. The products were highly rated and I must say they perform well. I did find an issue with the washer only. When the machine is running it generates an RF field that almost totally interferes with AM radio broadcasts. This happens when a portable (battery powered) or plug in radio is used. This never happened with previous GE washer or Kenmore washer that I owned over the past 40 plus years. I contacted their service dept. online and explained the situation. The response was, We sell a filter kit to remedy this situation but it is not covered by your warranty. I priced the kit at various sites and they run anywhere from $145 on up. Now mind you this is for part only. Installation was not even mentioned. I find this unreasonable as they admit to a problem by offering a fix at the consumers expense.

I 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.

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!!!!

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.

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.

We had a Kenmore washer for over 25 years, but had to leave it in the house
We had a Kenmore washer for over 25 years, but had to leave it in the house when we moved. I decided to upgrade to a Speed Queen when replacing the Kenmore. Because I wanted a top-load machine without a computer and many settings, I decided upon the TR3...and am every so disappointed. One problem with this machine is that clothes do not come out clean (too little agitation?), so every little spot or mark or stain must be hand-scrubbed before being put into the washer. A second problem is the minimal number of settings. If the load of clothes seem to need an additional spin, they must go through the entire wash cycle first. There is no way to select just one portion of the cycle. It is all or nothing. I had not noted this feature of the machine before purchasing. I am so very sorry that I spent that amount of money to be so very disappointed. Will be replacing this washer soon with something other than a Speed Queen.

I recently was given an almost new Speed Queen electric dryer that was discarded due to a problem that was going to cost over $400 to repair. The problem was definitely a factory defect. The problem involved the factory leaving a component out when it was assembled. This model ADEE8RGS173TW01 was repaired by me using new parts and now works properly... I have an older Speed Queen washer and gas dryer in my house and they work great but this factory defect situation on an almost new unit makes me wonder if the factory has the proper QC in place to make sure new units will indeed last a long time. I work on washers and dryers daily and I have seen the good, the bad, and the ugly. Hope they correct this type of problem...

I have been waiting for an element for 2 months for my dryer. Of course due to the pandemic it is on back order. I was told when asked about a replacement to contact the retailer I purchased it from. The would not send them a return authorization. When I asked for a manager the rep refused and hung up. I am spending money going to the laundromat when I have a dryer at home. I wish I could give them zero stars at this time. They don’t deserve not 1 star!!!!

I bought a Speed Queen washer in January of 2014. What convinced me was the warranty. But less than 5 years later I need to replace this washer or fix it for 600$. Finding out the bearings were not covered under the warranty. I previously owned a Maytag that lasted 22 years. Replaced it with an LG front loader that was horrific because of the smell but it was running after 7 years at least. The technician told me I just got a dud because this really doesn’t happen with the speed queen but lucky me. Speed queen informed me they could not help. A washing machine should last longer than this so no I can no longer recommend this product.

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 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.

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 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!

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.

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.

Quiet running, cleans well, runs an average load in about 30 minutes. Spin is especially effective, resulting in shorter drying times as compared to our old Whirlpool. It has an upright agitator, a feature we wanted. Since Speed Queen has done away with the transmission, the agitator is fixed and the drum moves to swirl the clothes thru the water. It runs with a gentle whooshing sound instead of the old thrashing sound. So far, it has worked well. Our machine has analog controls, not the digital control panel. All the controls are marked understandably and are easy to use. My wife likes the delicate and hand wash cycles, something our old machine did not have.

I 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 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.

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?

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 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.

After one year I had to wash my clothes by hand. The Speed Queen model AFNE9BSP116TW13 totally stopped working. It took almost 2 months to get a service person to repair it. Then to add insult to injury the Alliance customer service Chat was a total joke, no response even though I was number 1 and so was trying to get through on their phone number. I hung up after 25 minutes. I need moving bolts and cannot find anywhere to get them. It puts me at risk for totally damaging the machine in my upcoming move. The dealer lied to me about it being a 10 year warrantee. When the machine broke down I opened up the sealed package (no manual) and it said 5 years. The dealer denied he ever claimed it was a 10 year warrantee. What a racket.

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.

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.
