Welcome to our website! As we have the ability to list over one million items on our website (our selection changes all of the time), it is not feasible for a company our size to record and playback the descriptions on every item on our website.
We’ve all said it – "they just don’t make things like they used to." Well, the truth is, most appliance companies don’t…but Speed Queen isn’t most companies. Our commercial quality pedigree has been built over more than 110 years in Ripon, Wisconsin. While you might buy on that pedigree, true peace of mind comes in performance and reliability. We believe that when you spend hard-earned dollars on a major appliance it should reward you with decades of even harder work. Rest assured; Speed Queen will deliver nothing short of that.
You think your laundry day is hectic? Imagine the demands of Speed Queen washers and dryers in a busy laundromat. Eight to 10 cycles a day often is the norm. This is where our commercial quality is put to the test and has been since we started. While we’ve domesticated our commercial machines a bit for your home and removed the coin box, they are every bit as heavy duty. We test our commercial quality machines to 10,400 cycles or roughly 25 years of life in an average household. As for that coin box, well, if you choose to do it, you can always add that back on yourself if you want to charge your college student returning home on the weekend with a giant pile of dirty clothes.
Still waiting on the ultra-creative Speed Queen commercial to run during football’s big game in February or during the Academy Awards? Yeah, about that… it’s not happening any time soon. Our
story is best told by your friends and neighbors who own Speed Queens and those who test them. Not that we’ re against awards and championships. Over the years, we’ve received our fair share including:
Kudos from the folks at Good Housekeeping who recently performed testing on our TR7. Read more here.
We’ve been a Women’s Choice Award recipient the last several years. Most recently, in 2021 we were the most recommended luxury washer and dryer. Read more here.
Best of all, when appliance owners are surveyed by a leading consumer organization, we are rated the most reliable major appliance brand. Read more here.
Pop quiz: what happens when 3,000+ employees unite in one mission to produce the highest quality laundry equipment on the planet? The answer: 10,400+ cycles of performance. It might seem like just washing and drying to others, but for us, laundry is all we do, and we are committed to giving you nothing but the pinnacle of quality. Do we have to dry giant rolls of duct tape continuously for hundreds of hours in our test lab? Well, the lab techs who must listen to that thumping, would say no…or at least not every day. As a company, however, we know that pushing limits is how we deliver the highest quality products. Oh, and it’s kind of cool to see what happens to those rolls of tape.
Want to have some fun with the appliance salesperson at a big box retailer? Tell them you want a seven-year warranty. Then tell them you want it to cover not just parts, but IN-HOME labor. That conversation will be entertaining, but not very fruitful. We have always taken the lead in providing the industry’s best warranties. Today, that means three-, five-, and seven-year bonds. You buy Speed Queen for peace of mind and performance. We want to make sure you feel comfortable and supported for the long haul.
We can walk you through all the details on our five-step product development process and the gates along the way. But let’s face it, you would rather hear about how we make sure our commercial quality products live up to the legend. You want to know that we use fluid-filled balance rings, heavy-duty springs and a solid-steel base to ensure the best out-of-balance tolerance on our top load washers. You probably want to hear that we test our electronic controls to one million depressions…yes, we actually do. We engineer for the harshest environments then beat the heck out of the machines in our world-class test lab.
SOLUTIONS FOR PETS
We love our pets, but we don’t need to wear that love on our sleeve…literally…like in the form of pet hair or smell on our clothes. Our approach in designing solutions for pet items was simple: keep the love, but remove the hair and odors, all while saving you time. Your pet ownership experience just got a little more carefree and hair free.
If you’re part of the roughly 67 percent of U.S. households owning at least one pet, you know that when it comes to pet hair on clothing – the struggle is real. And that struggle is more than your dollar store lint roller is going to manage. We get it. Our employees have pets too and asked why can’t we develop cycles specifically for pet items. Especially, knowing that 43 percent of pet owners use pet hair on clothes as a barometer of their cleanliness. Speed Queen’s Pet Plus cycles offer consumers a highly effective solution for removing hair and keeping all items looking…and smelling great. We’ve put these cycles to the test in animal shelters, service dog facilities and the most challenging, a Great Pyrenees rescue. Bottom line: these cycles delivered in pilot testing in commercial environments and they will for you as well. Come on, is your pet hair situation going to top the challenge of laundry from eight Great Pyrenees?
EXPERTS IN FABRIC CARE
It’s only washing and drying; it’s not rocket science. Ummm, ya, let’s have that conversation when your favorite pair of skinny jeans emerge from the washer trashed or your favorite vintage concert t-shirt…you know, the one from the Bon Jovi Slippery When Wet Tour becomes a thread-bare disaster. Fabric Care matters. And when it comes to fabric care, Speed Queen delivers.
Speed Queen Perfect Wash™
The average family spends almost $2,000 a year on clothing. By anyone’s viewpoint, that’s not a throwaway spend; that’s an investment. So, why would you opt for anything less than the best care possible for that investment? Speed Queen Perfect Wash™ provides a better clean that’s gentle on your clothes. This innovative system links the agitator and tub to provide a gentle, but highly effective, wash action that leverages the power of water to clean. Essentially, it moves water through the clothes…providing a premium wash that safeguards your family’s clothing investment, keeping items looking good for years to come.
Speed Queen Classic Clean™
Grandma had laundry day down cold. Loads flowed from that old Speed Queen as swiftly as pouring glasses of her famous lemonade. Times were simpler then and fabric less technical. But if your fabric care needs lean toward the basic, this 30-year-old classic wash action produces faster cycles (roughly 30 minutes), while delivering clean results equal to Speed Queen Perfect Wash. You’ll get a 210-degree agitation stroke, 60 strokes per minute and a deep fill option that fills the tub. Classic things are classic for a reason – they just work. Sorry, no tailfins option on this classic TC5 beauty.
We get it, there’s nothing more annoying than opening the dryer door and finding the load isn’t dry. That’s why for years, many of us have dried to the maximum time to head off that scenario. Problem is that over-drying is not good for your laundry. With our Over-Dry Protection feature, we take all we’ve learned on the commercial side and apply it to our Consumer model. That means drying to a set level and then deploying our commercial cooldown technology. Bottom line: better care for your clothes and linens, thereby extending their lives.
CARE FOR ALL LIFESTYLES
Life is about having options. But you must strike a balance. You must ask, do the options simplify my life and bring peace of mind or are they fluff? Our focus is bringing you the former through features that fit your lifestyle and make a difference in your day-to-day. So, if you’re wondering about a red or blue Speed Queen machine to fit your laundry décor…nope. But if you want features to help give your shirt a quick wrinkle-free refresh or bring peace of mind linen has been cleaned at the highest level, that we can do.
The highest level of clean has never been more important. We have made this a priority. So, our highest level of clean starts with temperature in the washer. When you want "hot," you get exactly that – a hot water wash. Other manufacturers might still mix water for a "hot" wash. Speed Queen gives you a true hot water wash – as hot as it comes out of your water heater – because we know hot temps are the best line of defense in killing bacteria. We take it even further by giving you a sanitize cycle on the dryer and a steam sanitize (DR7 model).
Worst parts of doing laundry? Folding and ironing. Well, our steam feature can help you with half of that. Our DR7 model leverages the power of steam and offers a variety of life-simplifying features. From a steam refresh to get you out the door fast in a shirt that looks and smells good, to static reduction (toss those dryer sheets in the garbage) to steam boost and steam sanitize, we’ve got so many challenges met. As for the folding…well, at least you won’t find socks stuck to things when you’re doing it…you know, because of the no-static thing.
Front Load Washer Efficiency and Convenience
A front load washer that has fast cycle times…sounds like an oxymoron, right? Well, not with Speed Queen. We know you are busy and want to get to the important stuff…binge watching reality TV…so, our front load washer gives you everything you want, plus fast cycles. With nine preset cycles and special and favorite cycle flexibility, you’ll breeze through laundry day and get back to the (oxy)morons on reality TV.
