I have had my speed queen for 5 months now and am so happy to have this washer. I wish speed queen made dishwashers too. (Where can I find an old school dishwasher?) Had I purchased this machine right after my old clothes washer (25 year old) died, I probably would have given it 3 or 4 stars only because of a couple insignificant cons (see cons). But I purchased this after spending a miserable year with a brand new top of the line high efficiency washer that wore out and destroyed hundreds of dollars worth of clothes. And I saw zero difference in my water and electric bills. Thanks to Uncle Sam, they donít make washer like they used to. My advice to anyone looking for a new machine Ė If you have an old washer from the 1980ís, fix it. Buy a new drum if you need toÖ buy a new motor. As far as shipping with appliance connections, it was extremely fast. It took 4 days for processing and then shipped and arrived in a blink of an eye. Somehow they transported it cross country in only 2 days. Shipping will be different for everyone depending on the local delivery company that contracts with appliances connection.

Pros: No more damaged clothes! Old school = No electronics to break and a ton of flexibility. I can start in the middle of any cycle, change cycles in the middle of a cycle, and add as many clothes as I like any time I want. I can change temperature anytime. I can fill the washer a little with a few clothes that need to soak overnight then fill the rest in the morning and add more clothes. Oh, there are so many things I can do with this washer that I canít with a high efficiency. This machine can wash just as big a load as the 5.0 high efficiency, even slightly bigger because of the superior design. I choose the water level, which is extremely important for delicate clothes. More water equals less friction which can damage clothing. I can wash jeans with delicates without damaging my clothes because of the agitator technology as compare to a high efficiency that rubs clothing together. No more wrinkled twisted clothes! I can smash my clothes in the washer then smash them in the drier. No more shaking out each individual piece of clothing between wash and dry to minimize wrinkles. No more zipping up zippers. No more catching the high efficiency washer before it spins to get all the air that it pumps into some clothing and pillows. (In high efficiencies the air fills up the pillows/ jackets, etc. Then, when it spins, the pillow rips. - thatís with high efficiency not this wonderful speed queen.) I suspect that is what also ripped my sheets in my high efficiency. This speed queen cycle is much quicker than high efficiency even though actual wash time is the same or longer. Oh, the time I save.

I was much of a technology person. It was all about the quality of the washer beacuse I've had at lest one good washer that lasted me for a good 16 years, why? It was built to last and not packed full of technology were it can break down and mess up the washer.

Love our new Speed Queen machines! Was considering buying fancy front-end loaders til my husband pointed out all the ways they would not suit our needs (mildewing unless pampered, inability to soak or add to loads, delicate & complicated electronic boards).

Pros: BIG capacity, simple operation, and super-steady operation.

Cons: Will not win a beauty contest (but that's not what we need them to do)!

Great washer. Searched all over before I found this brand. Love that I can choose the water level myself and that there are no electronic settings. Solid construction. Fantastic warranty.

Cons: None

My brother recommended the Speed Queen line of products when we were searching for a new washer. It was easy to install and works great. Our clothes are coming out cleaner than they were with our last washer!

The speed queen brand is great! My Mom had one when we were kids and I thought they stopped making them. I had a top of the line Bosch washer that was complicated and broke down on me and I needed a easy to use and durable washer and I read about the Speed Queen. I researched the brand and found the Appliances Connection website. I am very happy on my purchase, though the shipping/freight company changed the date of delivery without letting me know, but over all I made a great decision. Thanks Appliances Connection. I am looking to get the matching dryer and pehaps some kitchen appliances in the future from you guys!

My mother had a Speed Queen washer for ages. It has lasted her many years. Now that I finally moved into my own home, an affordable washer that works great is what I got. That is why I chose this item
