Professional delivery and installation is available for every product we sell. We would be happy to coordinate delivery and installation for you.

Extended warranties are usually very inexpensive and can save you thousands in the future. Some can even cover extra costs that result, such as cost of food that spoils when your fridge dies. It's simple and inexpensive to purchase extended warranties and one of the smartest ways to protect your investment.

Appliances can be large, heavy and expensive. You probably don't have the special tools or expertise needed to fix them in a crisis. If you can spare a few thousand dollars without batting an eyelash for new appliances should they break tomorrow, don't buy a warranty. But if you're like most of us, protect yourself by purchasing inexpensive extended warranties when you buy a new product and save yourself big money in the long run.

I appreciate the lighted interior as the Whirlpool it replaces had none. Also, the floor of the drum feels a bit higher, which is handy. The dryer has all the features I need without being overly complicated.

Not Happy with this Dryer!

Jayem 9/4/2021

So sorry I replaced my 7 yr. old Speed Queen Dryer with this new one, without even trying to have the old one repaired. I loved my old one. How could you possibly do away with one of the most needed features on a dryer -- namely a buzzer to tell me when the dryer has completed its cycle? My old dryer had a knob that moved throughout the cycle, so that I could check to see how far along it was in the drying cycle, and then when it was ready to turn off, it sounded a buzzer to let me know. And the volume of the buzzer was also adjustable to my needs. With this dryer, I have to keep going into my laundry room and checking to see if the dryer is still in the "heating" stage or has moved to the "cooling" stage. I usually find it in the "heating" stage, but have no idea how close it may be to moving to the "cooling" stage. And when I'm busy with other things (like most of the time) and forget to keep checking on it, I go into the laundry room to find it has already turned off without my knowing it and the items inside are just laying in the dryer getting wrinkled. In my opinion, whoever designed this dryer should be fired. And whoever approved this flawed design should be fired too! Mechanically, I've had no problems with the dryer yet, but the frustration I have every single time I use this dryer is not good. It definitely does not allow me to recommend this current crop of Speed Queen dryers to any potential buyers.

I wish there was a wrinkle release dial. When I try to reheat to get the wrinkles out, I'm having trouble getting to the clothes in time. Any suggestions? Sometimes I need more than 30 minutes and less than 60 minutes. There's no in between dial to give those minutes. Thank you

It's Speed Queen. You know what you're gonna get.

haikufive 8/16/2021

No frills, a nice clean design, and a dryer that will probably last longer than your marriage. I mean... I don't know you, but let's be honest, your relationship is probably based on lies. However, one thing y'all won't have to argue over is how great this dryer is. It works very well, it's nice and quiet, and it does what it's supposed to do. It doesn't really have any fancy bells, whistles, or touchscreens, so that's one less thing you'll have to fix.

WELCOME BACK BASICS AND COMFORT

IFLYMAUI 7/28/2021

Analog dials and knobs are the primary decision we decided upon. We had LG Front Loads that sang us songs and played music when done (before the Speed Queens). The Speed Queens allow me to control the wash cycle overall. How much water, how much soap. The build quality isn't what I expected. Dryer doors are thin and flex. Washer lid tops do the same. Paint is a bit sub-par. The end result is a far superior wash than our former Maytag or LG units. The dryer is even better.

Kind of disappointed

NellieB 7/2/2021

I'm having a hard time figuring this dryer out. If I could I would return it. Sometimes it works ok and sometimes it does not dry at all. I ran it three times to dry a small load of medium size towels. When they were finally dry they were wrinkled. I have never had a dryer that leaves towels wrinkled. I also had dish towels come out wrinkled. I have not tried the steam because it needs to be connected to a water source. When they installed it they did not do that and it was never mentioned to us. Now we have to figure out how to connect it to water. Until then that feature is worthless. Is there a way to run it with low heat? I have never had a dryer that did not have a choice of heat settings. Unfortunately the store where we bought it did not have one on display or I would have noticed the lack of heat choices and would not have ordered it. I heard great things about Speed Queen and expected to love this dryer but I really don't. It is by far the most expensive dryer we have ever purchased in the last 49+ years and so far I don't think it's worth the price. Maybe I just don't know how to use it. I also have a very hard time opening the door. You can't get a good grip on the handle and it's very awkward. I would love feedback from Speed Queen. I would really like to be pleased with our purchase. We spent a lot of money on it.

Waiting to decide

McGs 6/16/2021

I've owned two SQ washer and dryers in the past 10 years. My first set was outstanding and led to ordering our most recent set in March. The first set back was when they arrived almost a month later than promised. The second disappointment was that the washer was dented, although this was addressed by switching out the machine. The third and biggest issue was that the dryer started making great marks on my clothes and the dryer timer when out. I calendar SQ and they sent me to a local service company. The dealer service department couldn't get it to for close to a month. A second local appliance service company was able to come out the next day. They reset the felt in the back of the dryer and ordered parts. The parts came in within a week. The service man just left today and we'll see if the problems have been addressed. I'm hoping to find this was a hiccup and that we will be as happy as we were with the our first ones.
