Speed Queen is a commercial supplier of laundry equipment like washers and dryers. It is one of the most eﬃcient brands on the market when considering a commercial grade white goods for your home. Although Speed Queen’s products are usually found in commercial settings such as hotels, dry cleaners and pre-schools, the need for that “professional finish” within our own homes, is making a comeback. As stated on Speed Queens Instagram page, “The most memorable days end with the dirtiest clothes…”. Any family poor on time and hungry to save on extra house work, would defiantly love to have a commercial quality washer and dryer in their laundry that not only promises to be cost eﬀective, but also time eﬀective too.
Speed Queen is an American company founded in 1808, with its headquarters in Ripon Wisconsin. Speed Queen is part of the largest manufacturer of commercial laundry equipment, with a very loyal fan base following and for good reason. As a brand Speed Queen oﬀer two diﬀerent types of, wash system technologies. Introduced back in 2018 Speed Queen provides their customers with two options, classic clean washing machine system, or the perfect washing machine system technology. So what are the diﬀerence between the pair, well the technology found in the Classic Clean is for all the old school, die hard fans and lovers of Speed Queens transmission driven wash. Just like your American muscle car, the classic wash system oﬀers a louder but faster wash cycle. Using its transmission system the clothes are pulled towards an independently rotating agitator, bearing a two hundred and ten degrees stroke, which removes the grim and dirt oﬀ your clothes. It also has a no lock lid, so you can pop items of clothing in mid cycle. It’s tub brake stops your washing washing cycle within two seconds of having opened the lid.
When it comes to the Perfect Clean technology systems, there are a few little mechanical diﬀerence that separate it from the traditional wash system. The Perfect Wash does not have a rotation agitator, it relies on the natural direction and force of the water within the machine to wash, remove stains and dirt from clothing. It has been proven to be more gentle on the clothes it washes and is quieter when running. Although quieter, it is not as fast, as it has a longer washing cycle compared to the the Traditional Wash action system. The water funnel spin ensures that your clothes will come out dryer, after a washing cycle is completed, taking less time to dry out in your dryer. The Traditional Wash technology washing machines, come in a few diﬀerent models where as the Traditional Wash washing machines only has one option to chose from. You can also purchase front load washing machines swell as you top load washing machine. Your front load washer have a great capacity allowing for 10kg of weight to be thrown around where as your top load washer had a 8.5kg capacity. There is no doubt that Speed Queen not only has plenty to oﬀer, but it has adapted the mentally, “built to last”. The rigorous five stage process testing, according to Designer Appliances, Speed Queen has undergone “10, 400 cycles test which equals eight average loads per week, lasting twenty five years in a home, which makes it two to three times longer than your average brands.” Oﬀering a three year warranty on their entry level products and a seven-year warranty on their high end products, truly providing that reassurance that customers look for and need in any purchase.
Furthermore, it uses minimal electronics in the engineering makeup and thus has less parts to service, over the life of the product. It truly does oﬀer peace of mind when purchasing a Speed Queen white goods and in a throwaway society such as ours, we have a product that challenges this very notion, a product that is, dare I say, made to last?
