Wow, what a washer.Thank you Speed Queen
Clean Clothes Well
Not sure if CR needs to revise their washer test; however, this washer is great!<br />We bought this model and the dryer, which I will make a fast comment on the dryer at the end.<br />This washer washes all of our clothes that our 7 year old front loader did, in half the time. Yes, it uses more water than the HE washer; however, the time and energy you save is well worth it. How valuable is your time? The 7 year old HE washer started to malfunction and the dryer started to eat clothes, which brought me to CR to look for a washer.<br />I was leaning to Kenmore and Maytag brands, due to their reputation, and the fact we had a used Maytag, which was old as dirt, but made the mistake of selling it with the house, a while back. After reading CR reviews, I was a little disappointed. I was about to go with the whirlpool, until I compared the models and noticed the Speed Queen had a lot of reviews. Then after I compared other internet sites, I took a risk on Speed Queen. I haven't more happy with my purchase. It work well with all clothes type. It is a little more noisier in delicate mode, as it using the slower speed, via the transmission, but the other modes are just quite as other washer, just a different harmony.<br />On that note, we are currently between homes and experienced other washers and we are missing our Speed Queen. An older GE, which is loud and HE washers that took 1+ hour and my wife pulled an artical of cloth out, which had dry spots on it.<br />The dryer is just as plan and CR review is almost spot. It does run hot, as my wife uses delicate heat setting for everything and I use medium heat for most of my stuff, unless it towels or jeans. This is a no frills dryer, which I love. Clothes are dried on the less dry or energy saver setting.<br />Final note on the Speed Queen washer... It is a no frills washer that works great. It has a 3 year warranty; however, the transmission has a 10 year warranty. Please verify for your self at the speed queen website. I love this washer and recommend to purchase it. If you don't like it, you could sell it fast on Eb*y. I hope you all enjoy this washer.
