I have found the Washer of my dreams :)

This is the best washing machine I have ever used it is fast, thorough and has a huge capacity. I have a family of 6 and spend alot of my time washing, it is a thankless job. I have been struggling for the last few years with a good looking front loader that was terrible and it didn't clean the clothes properly, so with this I feel I have gotten my life back with the Speed Queen. I have two regrets though, the first is that I didn't spend the extra $200 and get the electronic version as it has more cycles (I would like to be able to soak my clothes) and two, I didn't get it sooner. Show details

Great Machine, Great Service!

I was use to having a Maytag for 20 years. Speed Queen was the only equivalent replacement. Clothes I wash vary from delicates to tiling trade work clothes. Have had the new machine for a few months now, can't fault it. It's easy to use, cycles are quick, no residue left in the bowl. Installation was great too, installer took the time to go over the machine functions in a bit more detail than the standard brochure. Show details

Absolutely the best

I had a speed queen washing machine for just over thirty years. Only had one minor repair until I had a house fire. There was only one option to replace it another speed queen washer. Absolutely the best washer. Show details

Best washing machine

We have recently replaced our washing machine as it was about 20 years old. The new Speed Queen we have now is fantastic!! It is very easy to use, holds a lot, does a brilliant wash and spins well so that the clothes dry quicker than with our old machine. It fits perfectly into the space left by the old machine. It was installed very professionally. We are so glad we chose the Speed Queen. Show details

Well worth the investment!

Well worth the investment.
My first SpeedQueen top loader I had for over 20 years and serviced a growing family of 7. Takes on the heavy items and was very reliable.
Just purchased my second one, similar model. Quiet and quick cycle. Efficient delivery, lovely guy came installed the new one with no hassle and took away the old one at no extra cost. Show details

I love this machine

I replaced my faithful Maytag with a Speed Queen because a Maytag wasn't available at the time. I am super happy with my Speed Queen and I'm glad the Maytag was out of stock. The Speed Queen has a much bigger bowl and takes less time to do a full load than the Maytag. The only thing I miss about my Maytag is that it had a timer where you could tell how far through the wash it was. The Speed Queen gives no clue about this and if you stop the wash for some reason, you really need to start the whole cycle again to make sure you don't miss part of it. Show details

Built to last

I am very happy with my robust washing machine!

I like the way the switches ease into position.

Very deep fits a lot in. Simplicity of use.

It stays put while spinning.

No annoying electronic jingles.

(Less can go wrong, if you don’t have complex digital electronics which cost $700 to
replace.) Show details

Absolute workhorse

This washing machine can handle anything I throw at it. Greasy, muddy work clothes are no issue. A full set of sheets/doona cover all in one load without throwing a hissy fit. I can smash through the washing in no time at all! Show details

Should be Called Speed Clean!

What I love the most is the size and solid build of the Speed Queen washers and dryers. The capacity is fantastic creating less washes saving us power, wear tear & money. The simplicity of controls also makes for a fuss free washing job. It should be called ‘Speed Clean’ because that how I get through the washing (and drying) at our home with the Speed Queen range. Show details

Great machine

Browsing local store cast eyes upon the Speed Queen machine was very impressed quite expensive but having purchased have no regrets. Easy to use washes very well no problems with different materials. Cycle times good and great results on all programmes looks very basic but don’t be deceived Show details

Best Washing Machine

We bought Speed Queen washing Machine AWNA62 in July 2022, so we had enough time to make assessment of it. It is an excellent machine, the best so far we have used, and we had used quite a few others of different makes. Our thanks to sales staff of Harvey Norman of Caste Hill for advising to buy this machine and technician of Costello & Co. of Auburn for installing it. They did a great job.

The machine is very efficient, all clothes of different kinds, including delicates, are washed very well and it runs smoothly. Very pleased and very highly recommended.

We love our machine but are having problems periodically with the machine stopping working when it's full of water, and also not spinning out very well so the clothes are still left fairly damp. It does not happen every time but every 4 or 5 loads.....after stopping and restarting it work but takes a few times before it does. Has anyone got any suggestions to the cause?

Hi Daniel B. Curiously I can't suggest a reason why, but would recommend that if you give 1300 927 437 while in front of your washer and they can troubleshoot over the phone and if necessary arrange a service call.
