We’ve had to replace our six-and-half year old (!) GE washer and dryer, as the washer was working poorly and the dryer control broke. Honestly, we’ve never been that happy with them, but they were on sale…
After doing the research, we decided on a Speed Queen washer and dryer. It’s a brand I’d not heard of until we read Consumer Reports and other research sites.
So we bought the made-in-America Speed Queen model RSP113TW01 (top of the residential line) front loading washer and it’s companion electric dryer. Speed Queen exclusively made commercial washers and dryers (the company has no other product lines), until about 5 years ago, when they moved into the residential market. They’re top rated for reliability and durability ever since.
These units are pricey, but we decided quality and durability were more important than price in this instance. They come with a 5 year warranty and are expected to last five times that long. These days that’s a lot. We should have them installed in about 10 days.
