Written by Appliance Dude on 08.01.17

For decades Speed Queen washers have been the gold standard for laundry, both in the home and laundromats. Almost 20 years after frontload washers were introduced to the US market we are seeing a surge in Speed Queen interest.

Here's why you should be thinking about buying a Speed Queen washer.


The Speed Queen warranty is the best in the business, adding two additional years beyond what a typical residential washer warranty is. They do this for one reason - they have the utmost confidence in their product.


Many people are complaining about washers inability to provide deep water fills due to current Dept of Energy standard. With the Speed Queen AWN432 washer, the water level in the washer fits the size of the wash load. Small loads will use lower water levels. There must be enough water in the washtub to allow items to move and turn over freely. Full Tub Wash & Rinse fills the entire tub with water to achieve maximum cleanliness. The Speed Queen AWN432 also uses an agitator which will move clothes around and under the water, ensuring that the fabric is saturated with water and detergent.


Speaking of the agitator, the flexible one that the AWN432 top load washer uses rotates 210° at 68 strokes per minute. This moves the clothes through the water—and water through the clothes—for a more thorough wash, providing a better clean that’s gentle on the clothes.


As is the case with dishwashers, the use of a stainless tub is more hygienic as it will eradicate odors and other byproducts of dirty clothes. The stainless steel tub is gentler on your clothes and ensures long-lasting, dependable performance. The smooth stainless steel wash tub is easier on linens when they brush against it, Speed Queen washers don't wear on fabric. Load after load, the Speed Queen machines deliver an impeccable wash while also protecting the laundry. Saving not only money by not having to buy new machines but by not having to buy new clothes.


As washers, particularly front loaders, continue to have more and more electronics and technology  built into them, there is an increase in service incidents as there are now more things to break. Also as the machines become more laden with features, it complicates the control panel which many people find confusing. This has lead to a resurgence in stripped down, analog. agitator machines and the Speed Queen AWN432 top load washer is at the forefront of that movement. When you look at the machine it's simple and straightforward. Knobs, a few buttons and the same decades-old reliability that the Speed Queen brand is known for. Curto's Speed Queen washer
