I took delivery of a gas dryer today. It is replacing another
Speed Queen dryer. When my old unit took its last breath a week
ago, there was no doubt in my mind what brand would replace it. You
see, the old one was purchased in 1994. Since it's now 2013, that
makes it 19 years old!!! When you say "commercial grade", you mean
Elmwood Park, NJ
Thanks for a great product. And, that it is made in USA. We're
replacing Kenmore Elite Oasis HE washer, dryer after 6 yrs of
repairs, dissatisfaction. I washed, dried several loads of laundry
with our new Speed Queens, the day they were delivered. Much
cleaner clothes, drying time much less also. I like the option of
choosing wash temperature, load size (water level), fabric
selector. No more HE for me.
We rec'd our speed queen dryer from my brother in law "used" in
1992... I don't know how long he had it... but it has run perfect
for us for 21 years... I replaced the door handle...I don't even
know how old it is... from the 80's maybe? Satisfied
I am so sad. My nearly 30 year old Speed Queen washer (not the
dryer) is losing its transmission. I have never had to have a
repair done on the washer, only once on the dryer which was last
year and all the repairman did was oil, tighten belts, and give it
a good cleaning inside. I feel like I am losing an old friend. It
is still working, spitting some water out but I will use it until
it stops. I am so grateful for a company that builds things to
last. We are such a disposable society these days. I am not. I
treasure the things that I buy and always buy the best. It may cost
us more, but over the years we have not had to replace many things.
I thank you for my wonderful washer and dryer that has lasted all
About five years ago I bought a GE front load washer and dryer
it barely lasted two years. So then I bought a LG front load washer
and dryer and started having problems almost right away. Not to
mention that my laundry stunk. I had to add water every time I did
a load to get them clean .Customer support was the worst. I look
around for an American made washer and dryer and found Speed Queen
and I bought them. What a difference. My laundry comes out clean
every time. They work great and they are a little noisy but thats
OK . The only option that I wish it had is a buzzer to let you know
when its done.Its nice to know that you can still buy Quality thats
Made in America.
My Amana unit, after 11 years had a problem with the
transmission bearing. A repair man came out and found that it would
cost too much to repair. I looked at many front loaders and I am 70
years old so I don't need a computer masquerading as a washing
machine. I was ready to walk out of my local appliance store when a
Speed Queen caught my eye. I saw the simple, easy to understand
controls. I saw the large stainless tub. I saw that it was made in
USA. That sealed the deal. I ordered it, had it in stalled, and was
washing laundry that very same day. The machine is sturdy, USA
made, and easy to use. It also does a fantastic job cleaning
laundry. For those who do NOT want to mess around with complex,
expensive, high maintenance front loaders, the top loading Speed
Queen is the ticket to laundry simplicity.

I spent 3 weeks searching for a washer and dryer to replace my
13 year old set which died. I wanted a simple set like my old set
and simple to operate. Wanted a machine that would do what I wanted
it to - not what it wanted to do. I settled for a new set and had
it delivered. I was told there was a delicate cycle - there was
not. Then in the course of operation I discovered it did not spin
after draining the dirty wash water out. I could not have that. So
the set went back to the store where I settled on another set,
different brand. Next day I found out the water temperature on it
is not what it says. If the machine decides I need warm water it
comes in with the cold. Additionally if the washer thinks I do not
have a full load it will not fill to maximum. I was furious and
thoroughly confused. That second set was not for me. Next day I
went to local dealer to have my old washer repaired at any cost.
Telling him my problems he showed me the Speed Queen set and saying
it did everything I wanted - just like the old set. I have found
that to be true - just like the dealer said. I am very happy with
my choice and my dealer. I urge you to never stop making the
simple, "what the customer wants" washer and dryer. I don't need or
want a washer that has a back splash that looks like the cockpit in
a commercial airliner. Simple and quality - that's what I want and
what I got. I AM HAPPY.
My second washing machine lasted 7 years. In an effort to find a
washer that just might be worth the money, I did lots of research.
It was my sister in law who told me to buy a Speed Queen. Her logic
was that if these last in laundromats, just think how long they'd
last in the house. I found a dealer, went to look at them and was
astounded at the difference between Speed Queen and other brands. I
admit the price was a little scary, but you get what you pay for,
and my second washer was proof of that. I was sold on Speed Queen
after the first load of wash. The washer was so quiet I kept
checking on it. The clothes came out well spun and reduced my
drying time. It is simple to operate, doesn't require an
engineering degree to do a load of wash and actually fills the tub
with water ( unlike those high efficiency ones). I tell everyone to
make the investment in a Speed Queen. Made in USA no less. Can't
After 7 years of funny smelling clothes from a Kenmore Front
load washer and clothes not being dry, we switched to a Speed
Queen. We purchased the AWN542 washer and a ADG3LR dryer. we LOVE
our new machines. The washer washes fast and gets the clothes clean
(old machine used to take about an hour). The dryer just flat out
dries quickly. THANK YOU SPEED QUEEN!! we will do word of mouth
advertising what a great product you have.
Just purchased a Speed Queen washer for my home, and so far I
just love it. I can add a piece of forgotten laundry, or interrupt
the cycle and change the load size, etc....so different from the
other washers I looked at. Am glad I made this choice, even though
it cost much more than I had anticipated spending. Hope it gives me
many, many years of trouble-free service.
I purchased a Speed Queen Washer and Dryer 12 months ago. I
cannot say enough about the product. The washer and dryer are work
horses. The performance and capacity are stellar. By far the best
washer and dryer I have ever owned. Thank you.
Nov. 2012 purchased speed queen washer after (89yr) owner
(peters and fosters) told me it is a good washer and made in
America. I have used almost every day for 3mos. and I love my
washer. If I did not know speed queen was built in America, I am
sure there are millions of Americans that do not know either.
However, I plan to spread the news....
I bought my Speed Queen topload washer and dryer 2 months ago. I
am very satisfied. It was well worth the 25 mile drive to my local
dealer. This is by far one of the best washer and dryers I have
ever owned. I too was fooled by these new flashy front loaders that
sip water and don't clean clothes well. Instead of two hours
cycles, wet clothes, out of balance loads, and smelly clothes I now
can wash loads in about 30 minutes or less and they are cleaner and
smell clean too. Thanks Speed for building a great product in the
I used to always buy Kenmore appliances until my last Kenmore
washer broke after only one year. It was my first experience with
HE, electronic washing machines, and hopefully my last. The last
day I did laundry it took me all day to do two loads, and I told my
husband I was buying a new machine on Monday! After much internet
searching I typed in "traditional top load" and Speed Queen came
up! I read many reviews and decided that this was the machine I
wanted. The thing that really sold me was that it was made in the
USA! I went to Appliance and TV Center in Eugene, Oregon and they
were great! I ended up buying a dryer, too. The day my new set was
delivered I did about 5 loads of wash. These machines perform
perfectly in the manner they were intended- which is to wash and
dry your clothes, in a timely manner! I couldn't be happier with my
purchase. Thanks Speed Queen for a quality product.
We just replaced our 12 year old washer and dryer with our first
Speed Queen washer , dryer. We actually tried two other brands
before we bought our set from Speed Queen. Both of those sets were
terrible and had to be returned within a week. Luckily, on our
third attempt we discovered Speed Queen. Let me tell you it is real
nice to still find a quality made product that does what it suppose
to do. Great to still have a washer with an agitator where we can
still adjust the water temperature and water level that we want for
every type wash cycle. I am very thankful that the manufacturers of
Speed Queen are still building washing machines like we use to have
years ago - seems to be built like a tank. GREAT PRODUCTS! Thanks
Speed Queen, keep up the good work.
We purchased a Speed Queen washer about a year ago and this was
one of the best purchases that we have ever made. We already take
for granted having a worry-free; problem-free washer. When our
dryer goes out... you all will be the only ones we call. We are no
officially looking for you all to come out with... microwaves,
Ever since I have owned my own home I have had over 20 washers
and they all needed repair or would not do the job of getting
clothes clean. Now that I own a Speed Queen that has not been an
issue. I wash every day and it is the best washer that I have ever
owned. My clothes are now clean and not destroyed like they can be
using a direct drive washer. My mother has the same washer an we
were talking the other day and she was telling me how she liked
hers. I just think that it is the best keep up the good work
On November 20th,2012, I purchased the AWN542 top load washer,
and the ADG4BR, front load gas dryer, after extensive review and
research of home laundry options. I selected Speed Queen (Alliance
Corp) due to construction, warranty, and durability. Since Speed
Queen is used by laundromats (and those machines take quite a
pounding), coupled with my research, I chose the aforementioned
models. I have yet to be disappointed. The free dryer rack allows
me to use my gas dryer for drip dry items that cannot take the
typical pounding from the vanes in the dryer. It works beautifully.
I have known about Speed Queen all of my life, and I finally took
the plunge and purchased this pair. Again, the washer and dryer
have not disappointed me. Excellent product, and I have recommended
Speed Queen since to everyone that talks to me about home laundry
appliances. Thank you, Speed Queen for not wavering on your Quality
Control, and your commitment to maintain higher than normal
standards for your products!
I love, love, LOVE this machine!! After wrestling since 2007
with out-of-balance loads in my top of the line GE front loader,
and never being satisfied with how the HE machine failed to get my
clothes as clean as previous machines, I had to make a decision
when the front gasket tore and it started leaking. After reading
online stories of other customers, I found almost all Speed Queen
owners were loyal, happy campers. I wanted a machine that allowed
me to choose how much water I needed for the load I was washing. I
was impressed with the warranty, and looked up on the Speed Queen
webpage to find where I could buy them locally. I called a
salesperson I knew at the store, asked him to sell it to me, and
the transaction was taken care of over the phone. He said it was a
"really good machine...most people don't know about it." The
delivery guy also said he thought it was the best machine out
there. I've been using it a week, and am thrilled with the product.
I've been able to wash bathmats I couldn't wash at home with the
old machine because it couldn't balance the load. Love this
Thank you for selling top load commercial washers for home use.
I am so thrilled to have it. We had a top of the line Bosch front
loader that died after 3 years and when we took it apart to scrap I
was filled with thick mold, mildew and some other awful substance.
Thanks again, I no longer have to waste money on washer cleaners
that don't work. My clothes are smelling clean again, and I no
longer have to untangle clothes any more. So glad you are made in
Love the machine! I like the old school simple proven design.
Very quiet and it cleans well. Thanks for employing hard working
Americans to build this solid dependable machine.
I purchased a Speed Queen washer/dryer set in 1986 and am just
now starting to look at replacing them. They are running fine-I am
just getting nervous because the washer is starting to make some
noises and I fear it leaking on the recently replaces floor I had
installed. I thought I'd write to you to tell you of the amazing
longevity of your product but upon looking at your website, I see
that my experience is not all that unusual. The only work I've had
done on this set is to replace the agitator on the washing machine
when I loaded some tennis shoes in it (completely my fault) and
replacing some dryer parts when a squirrel chewed his way in one
year! I have moved this pair with me from the original house to two
other houses. Amazing product. I will be looking at Speed Queen as
my first choice when replacing! Thanks for a great product
20 months ago I bought a Maytag Bravos. Biggest piece of junk
I've ever seen or used! Wouldn't clean clothes. What's energy
efficient low water use about re-washing clothes just to get them
clean and it took forever to get a load washed. All kinds of things
started going wrong with it. We pushed it out the door and bought
the heavy duty commercial Speed Queen. Absolutely thrilled with it.
It cleans everything like a dream (once) and in a short amount of
time. You can have your energy efficiency, just give me my Speed
We purchased the Speed Queen front load washer and dryer about a
year ago and we wanted to let you know that it has been an
excellent purchase for us. The cleaning quality has been great, the
drying time has been cut in half, which leads to electricity
savings for us. The initial cost was more than I had wanted to
spend, but I am glad that I did. The payback should be about 4
years for us in energy savings. Again, thank you for continuing to
make a quality product.

I am firm believer of patting someone on the back for a job well
done and the manufacturers of Speed Queen laundry appliances
deserve a huge pat on the back. My wife and I purchased a new Speed
Queen washer and dryer when we bought our first home back in 1989
and they are still going strong. I am considering replacing them
because the lid on the washer is starting to rust heavily. It is
amazing to me that the outer panels of the wash machine are failing
before the inner mechanical parts. I have experienced ZERO problems
with either machine. The light bulb in the dryer is still the
original bulb. This is exactly what I had in mind when I purchased
them almost twenty years ago. My logic......what brand name of
washers and dryers are in just about every laundromat that I've
ever been in? Speed Queen. So that's what I bought and almost
twenty years later, I'm considering buying my second set of
machines. Job well done!
Picked up a Speed Queen pair today from Alexander & Ray in
Olathe, KS. Managed to move out my old 15-year-old unit and get the
new units in and going by 10 p.m. Very impressed with the ease of
installation and smooth, quiet running characteristics of both
units, and for not that much more than (if any more than) a
similarly-equipped "other" brand. All the negative reviews on other
manufacturer units were really getting me worried, so when I found
Speed Queen in a Google search of washers, I knew right away that
there was hope of finding a decent set of machines. The 3-year
warranty alone stands out among the crowd as something remarkable.
Also that they are still made in the USA is a huge plus. The idea
of doing things for the greater good of our society is apparently
no longer in fashion, except at a very few companies like
Alliance/Speed Queen! Keep it up!

I am happy to tell you that I purchased a Speed Queen top loader
washer and a dryer yesterday afternoon at Eden Prairie Appliance.
It was one of the easiest decisions I have ever made on an
appliance! They will be installed tomorrow. I had a competing
brand's front loader, which lasted only 8 years. I am happy to be
going back to simple, washing with a solid machine.
P.S. Your web site was great and helped me feel well prepared
before I went to the store.
"Only the truth!"
I should have known better, I only just recently purchased the
heavy duty Speed queen washer and dryer. In 1972, I was attending
San Diego City College training in major appliance repair and air
conditioning and refrigeration and I remember my instructor Mr.
Jones saying, "if you can afford a Speed Queen buy it, with its
stainless steel tub it is the best washer money can buy!" (I
remembered his wedding band hitting the interior tub and the
ringing of the metal.
Unfortunately, though the years I have bought some "pretty
machines." Five years ago I purchased my parents and myself another
brand. Last year, while I was in the parts store picking up parts
for the washer I saw the Speed Queen displayed; I could hardly
compose myself. I called my parents and told them I was buying them
a new washer and dryer! I replaced their set with a Speed Queen
They were thrilled, I am thrilled. This is the best machine on
the market. Today, I only recommend Speed Queen products to friends
and family asking for my advice. I soon will replace my laundry
equipment with new Speed Queens, too. Thanks for the great washer
and dryer set. I am glad to see them on the market!

Hello, I purchased a new Speed Queen washer and
dryer this past April and am thoroughly pleased with them. They are
great quality - always known for Speed Queen - and they are super
capacity and quiet machines! The new white set replaced our old
AWE931L, since the main seal started leaking when a fabric softener
dispenser got stuck underneath the agitator. We still have that
matching dryer (AGE939L) though, and it is working great!
I wasn't upset at all since this washer was 16 years old and
really didn't owe us anything! So, we started looking around and I
found out that Speed Queens were available for consumer/home use
once again. I went to your Web site and saw the models I wanted -
the AWS76NW washer and the AGS68AWF dryer. I was really surprised
by the bigger wash tub over the old models and the fact that my
loads of wash have been cut since buying this pair of laundry
I always hated doing laundry, that's why we have two sets of
washers and dryers hooked up and ready to go. Our old set of Speed
Queens (HA7001L - washer & HG7009L dryer) from 1983 and 1984
respectively, still are working great! I figure if the Speed Queens
are good enough for commercial laundry, they are good enough for my
home as well. No need to convince me - I know a quality product
when I see one! These machines are built well to take on the tough
loads week after week, year after year!
My Mom had an old Speed Queen washer from 1964 that I grew up
with. We sold the house when we moved and unfortunately that washer
was sold with the house. I would've loved to have that old machine
here now - just for the looks and sounds of it!
Thank you for making such a great product and keep up the good
work! You have a loyal customer here.
I just wanted to thank you for making such a great product. I
purchased a Marathon washer and dryer in the fall of 1987. We have
a family of 6 so your machines have been used non stop for almost
Two years ago I had my first failure. I had to replace a gas
valve in the dryer. I have not even had a belt break in the dryer.
I am hopeful that now that we are at the stage in our lives that
our children our leaving the nest, that the machines will last the
rest of our lives. They owe us nothing, so anything from this point
on is pure gravy. My wife's brother, who is 7 years younger than
her has already gone through 3 washers, so they are now
investigating Speed Queen. I have always raved about your
reliability, and always recommend you to all that I know.
Jon and Laura K.,
Purchased our stainless steel, heavy-duty Speed
Queen washer from Sears in 1989. Should have purchased a dryer as
well, but didn't and had to replace the other brand in 1994.
The washer is simply indestructible. Heavy duty steel, takes any
kind of load including blankets/comforters etc. Still looks
storeroom new. Put a mirror underneath it this week out of
curiosity. NO RUST. We finally replaced the hoses just because we
thought it wouldn't hurt. Bought the reinforced braided kind.
Just for kicks looked at other washers on the market now and
chatted with people. Very upsetting conversations: One lady
replaced a PLASTIC BALL BEARING 3 times in 4 years to the tune of
100 bucks each time. The electronic controls/computer chips etc.
mean only one thing to me: costly repairs. The new washers also
have way too many options. They are too light, made of plastic and,
from what I have heard, guaranteed to break down within 5
How complicated is washing clothes? Select water temp. and
quantity, add a bit of soap and Oxy-Clean and in under half an hour
you got clean clothes.
We have had not one problem with our Speed Queen. I hope that we
can get at least another 15 years out of it. I am also happy to see
that there is a dealer in the area who sells them. (25 miles away,
but well worth the trip.)
Thank you for something you just don't find anymore: a product
that is built to last.
Just wanted to let you know, I bought a Speed Queen in
Sheboygan, WI in the mid '80s and it's still going strong after all
these years. Good job!!!
Rapid City, SD
I've had my Speed Queen washer & dryer since 1993 and have
never had to call a repairman on the washer and on the dryer, only
once. Now the washer is making a funny noise and I want to replace
it with only a Speed Queen. I wouldn't have anything else.
Congratulations on probably the finest washing appliances I have
ever heard about.

After decades of service, it looks like our Speed
Queen Model 108 dryer will receive a well-deserved retirement. My
wife and I live in what was my wife's grandparents' house and this
dryer has been here since either of us can remember. We believe the
dryer has been here since my wife's grandparents purchased the
house in the '60s. I find it amazing this dryer has faithfully
served the same family for over 40 years! I'm holding out hope I
can repair the Speed Queen, because it still heats up great.
However it turns out, this Speed Queen has served our family
Glenn and Karen,
My mother had a Speed Queen washer when I was growing up. I
recently gave up my toploading Whirlpool for a frontloading Speed
I am very happy with it. It is still a good sturdy product. And
as an added note, I want to say that my water usage was cut in half
these last two months and the new washer is the only change. Plus
the time savings, since I can get a load of clothes in, out, and
dried in less than 35 minutes. Thanks.
Fort Gay, West Virginia
I have a Speed Queen washer and dryer that is at least 26 years
old and is still going strong. I am amazed at the durability of
both units. The dryer has never had a repair and the washer has
only had the hose repaired. I have washed large bedspreads and
many, many loads over the years with no problems at all. I was glad
to find that Speed Queen still makes products. I had heard that you
could no longer purchase them.
When my washer and dryer plays out (which may be never), I will
again purchase a Speed Queen. Thanks for making such quality
We're taking a trip down to Albany and Scotia tomorrow. I have
had so very much luck with Speed Queen, as had my mother, and now
my daughter, I have to buy another one! This one lasted us 20
years, would you believe it?
I think I have spent my life washing clothes. I raised four sons
and between their sports and other activities, I was always washing
clothes. They are now grown and have children of their own. I
recently purchased your Speed Queen washer and dryer and I regret
that I never had the opportunity to have such a great washer and
dryer when my children were at home. Hopefully, one day they will
be able to have a great Speed Queen washer and dryer in their homes
for their families.
It is absolutely the greatest washer and dryer I have ever
Thanks for a great product.
I just had to write to someone in connection with my (home)
Speed Queen dryer!! After 44 years, it quit!! This has to be some
kind of record! My husband bought it and installed it when our twin
daughters were born, Oct. 1, 1962. The first dryer ever for us!
Just thought Speed Queen would like to know ... That Speed Queen
served us well through FOUR daughters ... Our house has a wonderful
laundry chute to the laundry room, where the dryer sits. I had a
clothes basket on top of the trusty Speed Queen to catch the
clothes, as well as some little kids who tried out the chute! Oh
yes, many fond memories!

In the early 1980s, I bought a Speed Queen washer and dryer in
Peoria, IL. I used it briefly, then moved and took the combination
to my folk's house for them to use. As my mother now plans to move
and won't keep the house and appliances, I decided to look at the
washer and dryer today.
I was impressed. They looked fairly new. And I think they have
operated without problems or repairs since they were installed. As
I now have an old washer (M) that is leaking water, and a gas dryer
(M) that has a non-functioning timer switch, I believe my best
choice is to retrieve the Speed Queen pair and use them.
East Peoria, IL
I wanted to say thank you for a wonderful product. I have had
our super capacity Speed Queen washer and dryer for 9 years. In
that time I have had a service man come out once. The only thing
wrong with it then was the belt had to be changed on the dryer. We
are so happy with the Speed Queen washer and dryer we have. We have
done many, many loads of clothes in them, and they have held up
very well. I was doing up to 5 loads of clothes every other day,
and they are still working great. The only reason we are looking
for a new dryer is because we are in the process of switching from
electric to gas in the laundry room. We are looking forward to
making the new gas dryer a Speed Queen, too. We looked everywhere,
or so I thought, for a store in our area who sold Speed Queens. I'm
glad I found your website. My husband and I will be visiting the
stores your website located for me. Thank you for making such a
Melody And John Erdwein
I am thrilled with my new Speed Queen gas dryer. It works great.
I can't believe how fast my clothes dry! Thank you again for making
such great products.
"I've just ordered a Speed Queen for our rental house from
Bernie's Appliance in Ketchikan, Alaska from Julie. I compared
Kenmore, Whirlpool, and (cough, yuk) Crosley (which a local
hardware store stocks). Bernie's will ship the Speed Queen on the
AML barge & I expect to pick it up in Petersburg next Mon or
Tues. I'm excited. The things that sold me on Speed Queen are: 1.
Your solid reputation. What do laundromats use? Speed Queen! 2. The
fact that you still manufacture in USA. That goes a long ways with
me. I'm very angry with all the US corporations who've outsourced
to China & Mexico. I'm proud of you at Speed Queen & please
continue to make your machines in our country. 3. Price. A base
model in white with a 3 yr & 5 yr (motor) warranty will cost
less than Whirlpool, Kenmore, & Crosley machines i've looked
at. I've talked to too many Petersburg folks who only got two or
three yrs of service outa a Crosley appliance. I will let you know
how I like the new dryer after my renter & I install it &
his wife uses it awhile. Again, thanks for continuing to
manufacture in our country with American labor! Take care"
"Thank you for your email regarding my search for a Speed Queen
dealer. I ordered the AWN542 & ADG4BR just today from one of
the dealers you suggested in my area.
I have to tell you that I have spent the last entire week
reading countless reviews online from various sites. I visited
Lowes, Home Depot, Sears, etc. with my head whirling from
information that I had read. I did not find one single appliance
that had overwhelming favorable testimony about it. Most of the
time the feedback was so extreme in opposite directions that you
wondered ""are these people talking about the same machine?""
After having owned a brand new set of Maytags that I bought in
1970 that lasted me 18 years without a service call, I was spoiled.
My new set of Maytags lasted 4 years on the washer and 7 on the
dryer....no more maytags for me. A Kenmore Elite washer had
problems right after the one year warranty went out and I continued
to use it for 3 more years but ONLY on the delicate setting and
slow spin. A set of KitchenAids lasted about 4 years. I think you
get my drift.
Now that I have recently retired and need both a new washer and
dryer I was determined to find a set that would hopefully be my
last.... or at least give me the kind of service I got with my
first set of Maytags.
Luckily, during my hours of reading customer reviews on their
purchases I ran across about 3 people who mentioned they were
giving up and going to find a Speed Queen dealer. One was going to
toss a $3000 set of front loaders that had been a nightmare for
less than 2 years.
I thought okay lets look at the Speed Queen site. OMG.... still
made in the USA !!! 3 year warranty....YES! Nice to look at and
simple with big knobs for my weaker hands. After talking on the
phone with the nice man at Roberts's in Oxnard CA I was sold and
ordered them sight unseen. I have a very good feeling about this
purchase and am looking forward to getting them next Tuesday. I
think I found what I was looking for and if I am right, I will TELL
THE WORLD! :O)
Thank you Speed Queen for not selling out and still building
with pride in the USA."
"I just want to inform the Speed Queen MFG that our 1st speed
queen dryer was purchased in March of 1964 & I just replaced
it. The cost was $150 in 1964 & I'm sure that if my husband was
alive he would have been able to repair whatever was wrong. I
needless to say purchased another Speed Queen dryer for
replacement. I hope that your name continues with quality items
& that it will now service me for many yrs to come.
Thank You for the quality of your gas dryer in the past, I hope
it continues today."
I wanted to let you know that I purchased one of your Speed
Queen dryers, Model FE4230W, way back on July 17, 1977 when I first
moved into my new home. So now its 2009 and I am still using your
outstanding dryer and believe it or not, it has never had any kind
of repair or replacement part. How's that for quality???? So much
for planned obsolescence! By the way, that dryer cost me $268.00
brand new. I was 31 years old when I made that purchase and now I'm
63!! Needless to say, if I ever need another dryer it will be a
Speed Queen. Thanks for the wonderful product.
I am not contacting you about a new dryer. I am contacting you
because iI thought you would like to know that my 93 yro
grandmother just replaced her dryer. The dryer she replaced was a
1950 speed queen. Yes just replaced. It was purchased in the
Knoxville Tn area in 1950 and still works today. If you lift the
top there is a list of repairs my grand father made to the dryer
over the years. I do have this dryer if your company is

"Just completed the registration of my new Speed Queen washer.
One of the questions was what influenced my purchase. One of the
choices should be because the product is made in the United States.
A year ago we wore out our 70's model Speed Queen washer and
replaced it with a used Roper machine purchased in the local paper.
When we decided to purchase a new washing machine, Speed Queen
instantly came to mind. We were determined to buy a washing machine
made in the USA and were delighted to find out that Speed queen is
still made here. Thank you for continuing to manufacture in the
O.K.-we are ABOUT to take the plunge and buy a S.Q. TOMORROW!
(Oct 29, 2009) Our Whirlpool has required just TOO many (major)
parts/repairs. Now, it will cost more to fix it yet again, than to
buy a brand-new, identical Whirlpool. Husband and I decided: don't
WANT another Whirlpool/similar junk.! Mr.Martin at Martin Family
Appliance in Gainesville FL, sold me on the S.Q . based on the
needs of our LARGE (7 people) family, daily laundry (garments) PLUS
Lots of towels, comfortors, all sorts of dirty stuff! (dirty,
smelly boys and two less-dirty girls). I literally have laundry
piled up all over this house right now, and cannot WAIT to tackle
it (for once) with my NEW washer! I almost wish our (Whirlpool
elec) dryer would go, so I can get a S.Q. dryer as well! Anyway, a
bit of a unexpected punch to our budget this is, but, I am
heartened by the all-metal construction and the lengthy warranties,
and the recommendation by Mr.Martin AND the customer comments on
your website. So: I will let you know how it goes!
"Just wanted to send a note telling about the two Speed Queen
washers that we own. We have an automatic washer that we bought 26
years ago and it is still working like a charm. We also have a
wringer washer that we bought used a number of years ago that still
works every week washing lots of heavy clothes and rugs. It is a
model 91 serial #3295854. Could you tell me how old this machine
might be? We are very pleased with your products and will probably
buy a Speed Queen again if and when these fine machines need
replacing. Thank you very much."
"I just wanted you to know that i have owned over 50 speed
queens at one time between the years of 1991 - 2001. Very pleased
with the machines. The performance and the ability to fix them
easily. American pride is not dead. I have replaced inferior
Kenmore machines in 3 other places since that time with Speed Queen
top loaders. Regards, Richard"
Thank you for your prompt e-mail. I purchased a Speedqueen
washing machine from Gerrit's Appliance Store in Wyoming, MI. I was
so happy to see that Speedqueen was still making their machines in
the United States with high quality parts. This will be our 3rd
Speedqueen washer. The first two each lasted 15 years. I like the
stainless still tub and porcelain rather than plastic parts that a
lot of the manufacturers are using. We are on our 2nd Speedqueen
Dryer and it is still working well so we did not replace it. My
mother-in-law had a Speedqueen when she was raising her six
children so I thought that was a good enough reason to buy my 1st
one. The warranty that you offer is better than the other brands
probably because you build your machines better than the other
brands. I have a good feeling about purchasing your brand!
Hi, Chuck.....I just talked to our renter about a hot water
heater problem in the rental house we own and he said that on the
bright side, he & his wife love the Speed Queen clothes dryer I
bought last month. He says it dries clothes faster than the old
dryer it replaced and is super quiet. When we installed it last
month, Gary & I commented about the obvious design quality we
noticed when handling the new machine. We are both journey level
mechanics and are used to seeing the cheaper, lighter gadgets our
new age has switched over to. I thought I'd follow up & give
you the feedback. Thanks again for keeping manufacturing jobs in
our country and building good machines!........

Iron Mountain, MI
I just purchased an AW412SP. Great machine. Quality that I have
not seen in years. I want to thank you for manufacturing this
product here in the USA. You should put an American flag sticker on
the front of your machines. I am proud to buy an American product
of such quality and am telling all of my friends. We need more
companies like yours to turn this country around.
"Just wanted you to know that we bought our Speed Queen dryer in
September of 1965 and are still using it. I put a new belt and
heater on it years ago, that is the only repair its had. It is a
Model # 120-AF Serial # 599188. Last week the tub wouldn't spin, I
took it out of the utility room, said a few magic words apparently
and its working again.
When we bought our last washer thought about a new dryer, but
really saw no reason to get one. Know we'll never have another one

We raised 4 kids so you know it got lots of use. Thank you very
much for a good dryer."
"Just wanted to say we decided to purchase our speed queen
washer and dryer because it is made in the U.S.A. and locally in

Digital Store in Frankfort, IL that they were visiting
They bought the washer and dryer. Than we wanted a new washer

In January of 2008 my wife and I needed a new washer so we
headed to the local Lowes (since I use to work there) and bought a
GE. Well about 6 months later we had to have it repaired. Then
about 3 months after that another repair. Then in February 2009
(one month out of warranty) we needed another repair, but they (GE)
covered it. Finally this past June it (the washer) broke for good
and GE bought it back. We decided no more GE washers. We went to a
local store here in Fort Wayne (Stuckey's) and he told us we needed
a Speed Queen if we wanted "THE BEST". We never heard of Speed
Queen so I was a little skeptical. Then when he (the salesman) said
"have you ever been to a laundry mat?" Then it clicked "That's
where i've seen the name". Well we left with a "scratch and dent"
Speed Queen washer. It was a little more expensive then the other
washers we were looking at but from what i've seen in the first 4
months of owning it I would have spent 2 to 3 times more for it.
When it is running we can't even tell its going unlike the piece of
GE washer that shook and rattled and drove us crazy. Thank you for
building the "GREATEST WASHERS ON EARTH". I almost can't wait for
our Maytag dryer to die so I can get a Speed Queen dryer. I will
never own another brand of washer and dryer other than Speed Queen.
We tell everybody about our Speed Queen. I just hope they

"Thank you for the product you make. After much research on
washers, I bought a speed queen washer. I wanted a dependale
product that I will not have to replace in two years and the fact
that this washer was made in the USA clinched the deal for me.
After I made the decision to spend the money on a spped queen, I
Thank you again for making such a great product and for making
you product in the USA. You should be commended."
"Thanks for responding to my request. I had originally received
a message that there were no dealers in my area. Before I check
with one though, I want to let you know that I only found Speed
queen after hours and hours of grueling online research to find the
combination that I want and need. I have a four month old GE
infusor top loader, that I can't bear to look at let alone use any
longer. I'm infuriated at being foolish enough to buy something
that I should have instinctively known could not deliver. My
experience has left me very very apprehensive and in disbelief at
the attempts by ""blame the victim"" manufacturers and salespeople
to convince people who discover what I have, (you can't wash a full
load in a gallon of water) that they are wrong and therefore
responsible for misusing the machine, or worse, stuck in the past
and can't adjust to new technology. Everything I have read in
reviews about Speed Queen indicates that the washer to meet the
expectations I have. Thanks very much"
About six years ago, I purchased a new washer and dryer, GE
Profile series which according to their website, was considered
second to their flagship washer and dryer. Fast-forward to today
where I just had them replaced with a Speed Queen washer and dryer
and have no regrets in doing so due to the washer failing for
bearings and suspension and the dryer not drying as it should have
been. I did my research prior to purchasing the new Speed Queen
set, as there are so many different models and brands now that it
becomes overwhelming. I was on the Amazon website, reading the
negative reviews of each and every brand that I was looking at, and
in each there was one person responding stating that no brand beats
Speed Queen for reliability, warranty and build quality. Plus the
fact that they were built in the USA made a huge difference to me,
as I am tired of everything being made outside our country. I made
up my mind that buying a Speed Queen washer and Dryer was going to
be the right decision, I just had to go see the machines in person
for myself. The moment I saw the build quality, and the features,
plus the simplicity of the controls, I was sold. Funny thing is
that the salesperson watched me when I entered the store; he
noticed how I knocked on the body of all the different brands,
looked inside the tub and moved them back and forth via the
agitator, and without any hesitation, asked him to write me up for
the set. His words to me were that I made the right choice. I just
finished washing and drying my second load of clothes and I am very
impressed with the results of both the laundry and the quality and
operation of your product within a few hours of using your
machines. I should have brought this brand initially but was not
aware that they made home versions of their commercial products but
we are all entitled to make one mistake. I have already praised
them to my friends and family without question as being the only
washer and dryer that they should by and need for years to come.
Thanks for making built in America a standard again. Now if you
could only manufacture every other appliance as well.
After an epic failure with a Kenmore washer, we switched to
Speedqueen. The Kenmore had little irritants such a locking
lid that once locked would only unlock at the push of a button.
After you would toss in that missing sock and close the lid
you had to push the restart button and the washer would begin the
cycle all over again. With SQ, you just open the lid and toss
in the sock, close the lid and let it finish the cycle.
Kenmore, took one hour for a load of clothes. SQ, 30 minutes.
Kenmore, required two rinse cycles to thoroughly rinse dark
clothing. SQ, does it in one rinse. What ever savings in
water the Kenmore was supposed to save was lost because it required
two rinse.The big irritant was the Kenmore started it epic failure
one month after the warranty expired. Troubleshooting the
Kenmore was a nightmare. Diagnosis checks and re-calibration
of the machine were easy but never diagnosed the problem.
Calls to small appliance repair shops all said it was a
difficult machine to diagnose and repair. By comparison, SQ is
simple, efficient, and functions as a washing machine should. I
hate having to badmouth another brand but sometimes you have to
experience poor quality to appreciate excellent quality is.
If it was a contest I would have to say in political
correctness that Kenmore is first place loser. Speedqueen for the

My husband and I just purchased our first Speed Queen and are so
very excited by finally having a solid washing machine. We
wanted a washer that was just that....a washing machine, with none
of the bells and whistles that come with a repair man attached.
We were lucky enough to get her used, which is a miricle in
it's self, since most owners keep their machines for years and
years. We live on a small ranch in Northern NV and getting
dirty is a part of our everyday life, we have never owned a washing
machine that cleans our cloths as if they were new, but she does.
I named our wonderful machine Beauty because that is what she
looks like and that is what she makes our cloths look
like....beautiful. To anyone out there looking to buy a new washer
or dryer this is the only brand to have in your home!!!!!! It gives
me great pride and releif to know that Beauty will be cleaning our
cloths for the next 20 plus years! The added bonus is the fact that
we bought USA made!!!!
After 5 yrs struggling with a low-water Whirlpool washer, we
gave up and bought an AWN432 and it is SUPURB! Hasn't gone
off balance once! Do not ever give up your time clock
control - my wife HATES the computerized controls that try to think
for you! Keep up the good work!
Just purchased a new Speed Queen Set after my May*,g had to be
replace after only 6 yrs and many repairs.I am confident that after
reading all the Outstanding reviews, that I made the best
investment for my large family.
I recently purchased a new Speed Queen washer and dryer from
Daum Appliance in Peotone, Il. First of all the washer and dryer
are great!! Extremely quiet my wash is extremely clean and
the clothes are dry in a reasonable time. Pay attention to the man-
uals and you will not go wrong! Also the young lady in customer
service@ Speed Queen is most helpful.I purchased the AWN432 Washer
and the ADG4BR gas Dryer. And...anyone living in the south suburbs
of Chicago should deal with Daum Appliance In Peotone, Il. They are
most accommodating from accepting your order thru the delivery
process. I doubt that I will deal with Best Buy again.
Blue Island, IL
I'm not sure if this is the right place to send this, but I
wanted to send you some fan mail. We have had a domestic gas dryer
for about six years now, and we just bought an electric model for
our daughter for Christmas. When I installed the gas dryer I was
highly impressed with the design, the quality of the materials, and
the quality of assembly. This is an incredibly well made appliance
where it counts, and we were happy to buy another for our kids (we
fully expect the one we have will outlive us). In an era where
appliance manufacturers seem to all be involved in a race to the
bottom, it is great to know that such a great product is still
being made. Pats on the back to all involved in designing and
manufacturing. Please keep up the good work.
I wanted to let you know just how impressed I am with your
product. I own a speed queen washer & dryer bought in 1987.
They are both still running strong doing the job I bought
them for. I just thought you'd like to hear from us happy customers
every now and then, Thank you for making quality machines.
Purchased my speed queen washer from a local dealer after my
19yo maytag died. After exhaustive research, and a trip to the
Laundromat (where they have speed queens) I was sold. I've had it
for 6 mos, and couldn't be happier. Will purchase the dryer
San Antonio, TX
I purchased my AWS17NW washer in May 2008 after going through 3
Whirlpools and my 21 year old Maytag. Almost 6 years later my
washer still runs like brand new with no problems. Thank you Speed
Queen for continuing to build quality machines.
Our Speed Queen washer died this weekend...installed in our
first home on 10/22/1983. That's right, 31 years ago. Rest
assured we are lookixng at nothing other than a Speed Queen to
replace it. Who could ask for more? Our matching dryer
is still working. We have our fingers crossed. Thanks for
making such a wonderful product!
Ellicott City, MD
This machine does everything I need a machine to do, When
you fill it for a full load, it FILLS! When you want hot
water, you get HOT water! Has a nice deep stainless steel
tub. The controls are easy to use and mechanical. My
repair guy recommends ONLY Speed Queen. If you are looking
for a machine that washes your clothes like a washing machine
should, this is it. No fancy colors, no fancy electronics,
all the cycles you need and built to last in Wisconsin. Great
I am in love with my Speed Queen Washer and dryer. I dont think
my clothes have ever looked so good.After 40 years of buying
the "pretty" Kenmore and Maytag top and front loading machines with
all the bells and whistles that were always in need of some
repair.I decided to go back to the basic washer and dryer, no need
for extras to break down and plastic parts that wear out every
year.. YES and after reading all the wonderful reviews I decided to
buy the basic Speed Queen set from Watt Appliances in Van Nuys,
Ca.1,200 for the set. One of the evry Best investments I have made
for my family !!!! Thank you Speed Queen.
One day my Maytag Neptune that I got back in 1998 died. I
looked everywhere for another front load washer and every consumer
review I read told me I wouldn't probably ever find another good
washer and dryer. Then it dawned on me that relatives I have
who owned several coin laundry mats always used Speed Queens.
So I checked the Speed Queen website and saw they sold units
for homes. I located a nearby dealer and I wrote the check
for the new washer and dryer. Still made in the USA.
Delivery day was quite a feat getting the heavy washer down
the stairs. A very well built unit that does the work it is
supposed to do. Also if I should ever need service the dealer
I bought it from services. Try getting that from some box
store. We are so glad to own a Speed Queen washer and dryer.
We couldn't ask for anything better and dependable too.
I have my SQ washer, so that I am not in the market to replace
it; I only want to say THANK YOU for making a commercial grade
machine available for home use. I wanted a stainless steel drum
without a raised seam that would catch on clothes (like Sears
brand), that would allow me to wash WHATEVER (unlike the GE, Sears,
etc.), meaning bathroom throw rugs, comforter, bedspread, etc. YAY
for Speed Queen and for having SMART, simple, practical controls! I
needed a solid, reliable, well-built, practical, easy-to-use
top-loading machine, and you delivered! Thank you to the design and
production teams! I will hands-down always recommend a Speed Queen!
Thank goodness these are available for the home!
I read some of the other success stories and feel so fortunate!
We bought a pair of Speed Queens 25 years ago when our first
child was a baby. We picked them because they were in every
laundromat around,as I see others have said! My old machines did
exactly what they were supposed to do: clean the clothes in a
reasonable amount of time and with no worries on my part. The
washer started showing signs of age and I didn't want to replace it
because I was under the impression that Speed Queen was out of
business. We found a high efficiency front loading washer and
matching dryer that I thought I could tolerate. The night
after we ordered it, I came home and did one more search
online...and found that Speed Queen is alive and well! I
gleefully cancelled the other order and kept my loyal pair for a
couple more months. We're waiting for the washer to be
delivered but the dryer is here and works beautifully and even more
quietly than my old one. They do what washers and dryers are
supposed to do: get clothes clean on the first try. It's nice
to have machines that are entirely mechanical, from the ground up.
There are no computerized parts at all in these, so IF they
need repair, the parts are less expensive. I'm pleased to
know that I will have a reliable laundry pair for decades to
Purchased our top-loading model in November and wanted to wait
before posting a review. After four months we still love this
washer and are please with the purchase. Well worth the
price. Solidly built in the U.S.A. with quality materials-no
computer boards to worry about! This machine cleans much better
than the Whirlpool that it replaced. Oversize loads never run
out-of-balance- even while washing sleeping bags. Very
pleased with the product.
Villa Park, IL
I have been a washing machinerepairman for 42 years and have
always enjoyed it until about 5 years ago when the government and
the appliance manufacturers destroyed the washing machine. Almost
all are junk,they don't wash clothes,hard to diagnose and repair
expensive to buy and repair. It's embarassing for me when I have to
tell my customers it can't be fixed or it will cost too much.
Sometimes I can't bear to charge a service call! It's hurt my
business.For some time now I could'nt recommend any machine to buy
and keep a clear conscious.Then I discovered SPEED QUEEN! Believe
me folks,I know,this is the only company that still builds a
washing machine that still can wash clothes! I hope ,that the
government doesn't shut them down for not saving the planet from us
stupid consumers. Keep up the good work SPEED QUEEN and don't
I bought an LG top loading HE washer about 3 years ago. The
washer had a glass top and played a catchy tune at the end of the
cycle. It had all the bells and whistles. After about 6 months, I
noticed that my bath towels started to smell funky. I changed
detergents, tried a vinegar rinse, used additives. Nothing worked.
My clothes also were looking dingy. Finally, I sold my 2 1/2 year
old washer on Craig's list and researched washers online. Clearly,
Speed Queen was what I wanted. A simple, dependable washer that
cleans clothes well. Not only does it clean well, but it takes half
the time of the HE. The simple dryer does a fine job, as well. But
I'm writing about the Customer Service. Last Saturday, I heard a
clunking in the dryer. The lint filter cover was tossing around
with the clothing and had broken. I sent an email to Speed Queen
Customer Service asking where I could buy a replacement. Monday
morning I got an email telling me one was in the mail. Today is
Tuesday, and I have my new lint filter cover. This is the
most amazing service I have ever received in my entire life, and
After reading your customer reviews I had to contact you to also
say how much I love my Speed Queen washer. We purchased it a year
ago. I live in Canada, and after reading the reviews about your
appliances my husband drove 3 hours each way to Crosby N.D. to
purchase a washer. I was so frustrated with the last two Whirlpool
washers we had owned I just couldn't face buying another one of
their junky products. Together they lasted less than 8 years and it
just wasn't worth investing any more in repairs to keep either of
them. My Speed Queen cleans so well - it gets out absolutely every
stain that I throw into it and my husband has some really dirty and
greasy work clothes. It is fast. I love the simplicity of it and
even though it may be a bit noisier than my old models - who cares
- its noisy because it is working so hard to clean our clothes -
which is what we paid for it to do!! When my current dryer quits we
will travel again the 6 hours to buy your dryer. My ONLY wishes are
that you manufactured dishwashers because it is impossible to
find a decent one of those, and that you sold your products in
Canada. Thanks for your great products!
I would like to say this product is so much better then any of
the machines that i have had in the past. i just purchased a
washer dryer set and what a surprise!! very simple to use
and it actually uses enough water to get clothes clean, unlike my
last high efficiency washing machine. my clothes do not come
out wrinkled at all like other sets and that was a big complaint
from alot of my friends so it was a concern for me when purchasing.
the only complaint i could muster up ( AND THIS IS REALLY
NOT A COMPLAINT FOR ME ) is it only fits a queen size comforter
which i dont have so it does not really apply to me at all but you
should be aware of that if you have a king size comforter to wash.
if i were to rate the washer and dryer i purchased
1-10 i would give speed queen 9.9 out of 10. dump your
china made cheap high efficiency washers and dryers and never
complain again !!! BRAVO SPEED!! many thanks to the
staff at speed queen for such a nice easy product to use.
Deer Park, NY
I purchased my Speed Queen washer after my Whirlpool Cabrio died
after 23 months of use! what a pile of garbage. The machine started
sounding like a jet plane during the rinse cycle so I placed a
service call and after 4 weeks of waiting for parts my extended
warranty company decided it would cost more to fix the machine than
what it was worth so they gave me 550.00 and it was to be scrapped.
I figured maybe I got a lemon then I figured why throw good money
away after bad? During those four weeks I was going to the
Laundromat and it was full of speedqueens, so I decided to do a
little research and discovered I can purchase one for my home. I
walked into the dealer and told the salesman I need to wash clothes
that's it! I don't need to hear my machine whistling Dixie when its
done washing, By the way I don't believe my clothes were getting
cleaned properly, and he told me the speed queen is a work horse
and has the quality like the machines my mother used to buy. I
thought o.k it looked a little old fashioned but I"ll try it. What
a dream! I can open the door and see water inside, My clothes come
out clean and done in about 30 minutes. I can use regular detergent
and I don't have to wait for a door to unlock just to throw a sock
in that fell on the floor. Thank You for still making a great
product! Very Happy!
I love love love my Speed Queen washer and dryer. I have
always been a kenmore person. Never again. The first
kenmore lasted me over 20 years, the second not even 3 years.
Then the next one the salesman told me all washers are water
savers now. Hated it! Now I had a salesmen who told me
that speed queen was the only one that had the features I
love....enough water, load done in 30 minutes as compared to one
hour. You can lift the lid to throw in a dishtowel unlike the
locked lid that takes 2 minutes to unlock. The machine starts
immediately. And CLEAN clothes!!! The set was a little
pricier but so well worth it. I have told everyone don't mess
with these modern models. Speed queen, so worth every
After suffering with dirty smelly clothes and washer for 8 years
I finally have clean white good smelling clothes again. We
have a timeshare in CA and the resort uses Speed Queen machines in
their customer use laundry. With sand in the machines
because they are a beach resort my clothes were cleaner then when I
washed in my top of the line Maytag Neptune at home. I went home
and began researching how and where I could acquire a Speed Queen.
The reviews only reinforced my desire to get rid of my
machine and buy a Speed Queen. I've had it for 6 months now
and I am in laundry heaven. I expect this to be my last ever
washing machine but if for some reason I needed to purchase
another one it would only be a Speed Queen. I'm just waiting
now to replace my dryer with a Speed Queen. Thank you for
making a quality machine!
First I must tell you that I had a maytag Atlantis for 11yrs and
it developed a bearing noise and found out it wasn't cost effective
to repair so I replaced it with a G.E.washer that was a nightmare.
First it took almost 90min. To do a load of laundry and still
didn't clean the clothes( guess he machines use a tiny amount of
water) second it had an automatic sensor to measure the precise
amount of water to use. Well it took 17 min to sense before it
started a wash cycle and still not enough water to clean the
clothes. I returned the washer completely frustrated and
unhappy so from the big box store I went to a small appliance store
and bought a speed queen washer, what a joy I didn't think I could
get so excited about a washing machine but believe me it's a joy.
Complete load of wash done and clean in 25min, true fill up of
water,quiet and extremely sturdy awesome! This truly is the best
washer on the market today and speed queen has made a customer for
life. Thank you speed queen for making such a truly wonderful
