Speed Queen: The Champion of Reliable Home Laundry
Speed Queen takes its humble beginnings back to 1908, when a pair of hardware store owners purchased the rights to manufacture a washing machine line that they felt they could build in a more reliable and efficient way. Building upon these values, Speed Queen has continued to add innovation to their washers and dryers while holding true to the desire to build something better, more energy-friendly, and more efficient. With over 100 years of commercial laundry experience, Speed Queen is sure to stand the test of time.
One thing that stands out when looking at Speed Queen’s models is their capacity. With top-load washing machines coming in at only 3.2 cubic feet, many people falsely assume that Speed Queen cannot hold as much laundry, and this is not entirely true. While there are limitations, one thing that is important to note is that the cubic foot measurement we see listed on units is rated for the raw capacity of the wash tub, which does not factor in how much of the tub is actually usable once you’ve added clothes, water, and the wash mechanism like an agitator or impeller. Here’s a video from Speed Queen to demonstrate what we mean and how their units hold up to other appliance brands:
Speed Queen Top Load Washer Capacity
As you can see, Speed Queen can still hold a substantial amount of laundry, and will wash it well. It’s easy to look at the contrast in cubic footage and assume it can’t hold up, but there’s more than meets the eye here.
Speed Queen uses commercial-grade materials in their suspension systems which means you are getting a washer that is tough on your dirty clothes and durable. This advanced suspension also means that there is generally less vibration coming from your washing machine. Less vibration makes the machine quieter than other models, so you don’t have to put up with any ruckus coming from your laundry room. What’s not to love about a washing machine that works hard while also working quietly?
Taking the lead in many consumer reviews and getting featured in Good Housekeeping, Speed Queen is as reliable as they come in the world of laundry. They have remained true to their principles for over a century, maintaining quality and efficiency, and they show no signs of slowing down. Speed Queen is built to last and is sure to help take away some of the hassle in your day-to-day life by making laundry a breeze.
Speed Queen offers a large selection of washer and dryer sets. They offer both front and top-loading units as well as stacked laundry centers for an all-in-one style unit. Additionally, they produce gas and electric dryers to suit whatever fuel type you use in your home. Speed Queen does not offer a ventless dryer at this time.
