We purchased this in January 2017 based on the outstanding reviews it received. We liked the available mini and small water fills. But we noticed it seemed to have a minimum fill, no matter what we set it on. Calling Speed Queen, I was told they basically have two fill levels, no matter what you set it on. 8 inches and 12 inches of water. Per the manual, two dress shirts would clean nicely on the mini setting. That's way too much water. On mini, it still fills to 8 inches and I can do queen sheets and pillow cases. Also it is fairly noisy through the cycles. Yes, it is level. The spin cycle is not great. Heavy items like jeans and towels are still too damp. Lighter items are as expected. We can start a fill and it can become sudsy when agitated (and empty of clothing and no detergent added). So I know it is not fully draining. And I 'cut' my detergent with water; so 'no' I am not using too much detergent. We are seniors and know of the reliability of this brand name. We paid $250 more for this over other highly rated brands. It probably will last our life time mechanically, but wastes water. We got conned !!

I absolutely love this washer! We do animal rescue and have been through 3 washing machines in the last 10 years. I did a little research this time, looking for a machine with an actual full size agitator and found the Speed Queen! I do a minimum of 20 loads a week and this machine has been a work-horse! Blankets, towels, dog toys come out cleaner than I've ever seen them! I love that it only takes 30 minutes per "Heavy" cycle, and I can open the lid and add items once the cycle has started! My daughter just bought her first home and asked for a washer and dryer like mine as a house warming present! And the warranty on these washers is better than you can get from any other brand!

My family has preferred Speed Queen products for years. The current model we love has simple retro-look and is easy to use. Because it does not have fancy electronic controls, it WORKS and clothes are really clean when they come out.

I'm a mechanic and I really dislike poorly designed products...this isn't one of them! Tried, true, durable parts like the old days. And if you call the company, they actually answer the phone! I never heard of Speed Queen until I was searching for a new machine. I was explaining to a salesman that I had a competitors machine that used a cup of water, teaspoon of soap and ran for 2+hrs...the clothes weren't clean and the machine smelled. Just awful stuff. I had it for 2 yrs until I couldn't stand it anymore. I took it to the metal recyclers and just kicked it off the truck, felt so good. The salesman knew exactly what I was saying and explained to me how the whole industry has changed...and then he told me about Speed Queen and how they're made. He owned one but didn't sell them though, so off I went. I found 2 dealers nearby and checked the machines out. Basic design, you can control the water level and you can even open the lid and drop in that sock left on the floor. The cycle time is fast, about 15-20 min, and guess what... it cleans your clothes! What a concept! I bought this machine for my mom and I have last years model which lets the tub fill with the lid open, this one the water stops. This whole industry has gone crazy, but thank you Speed Queen for continuing to make a reliable, excellent product without all that useless nonsense... and for saving my sanity! You offer us a choice rather than those "other machines" that the rest of the industry offers. I've spread the word and my friends have bought several!

BEST USES

Comments:

As long as you don't care about the bells and whistles it's probably the best most durable washer money can buy. It soaks your clothes, unlike most residential washers today, has a full sized agitator instead of a little nub. Lets be honest, it's the agitation that gets clothes clean, not simply the sanitizing hot water, it's why we didn't just toss our clothes into a pot of boiling water to clean before, and even that would probably use more water than modern washers do. I stopped smoking recently, and I work in a factory, and with the old washer (a newer hi efficiency model), I could still smell oil on my clothes after I quit, sometimes, if my wife did laundry and mixed mine with hers in the load I could even smell the oil on her clothes afterwards. With 7his one I can't and I don't even have to use the extra rinse option. It's amazing what using common sense, and filling the washer tub to a level just above the top of the clothes can do. There's fewer sensors to wear out also, and it does everything it's supposed to. Extremely happy with it. Word of note though, having to get it into a very poorly designed laundry room, where we had to pull the dryer out, lift the washer through the doorway with the door removed and simultaneously over piping to the furnace, the thing is a lot heavier than a normal washer. A lot probably being about 50 pounds heavier, but as long as I never have to remove it from that room and replace ever again, I'm happy.

The washer is built like a tank, very solid. Can do a load of wash from start to finish in 25 min. Spin cycle super quiet, no more washer walking across floor. No problem washing full load of jeans to sheets. Clothes come out clean. If you want a washer to simply wash clothes fast, clean, without having a smart phone to do it this washer is for you. No problems in water level of washer rinse clothes fine.
