Love our new addition
Very impressed with the way the Speed Queen cleans so well in such a short time. I'll love using it in winter when balancing the time between the solar panels producing energy, washing on, done and out, and dry has been a challenge, but not now.
Purchased in December 2020 for $2,865.00.
The Speed Queen AWNE92 Black is just what we were looking for. It's solid, well built and performs perfectly. Our previous other brand machine could not take more than two towels without stopping on spin cycle and requiring us to rearrange the load. Speed Queen doesn't miss a beat.
I love my Speed Queen!!
When my old faithful 21 year old Kleenmaid (Speed Queen) washing machine started getting noisy I knew it was time to sadly say goodbye and look for a replacement. After looking at all the cheaper brands and reading all of the bad reviews, I was ecstatic to discover I could buy another Kleenmaid (Speed Queen) machine. I opted for the digital version as I am getting older and may get arthritis in the next 20 years. I love this machine. It's so easy to use, just put in your powder, then your clothes, shut the lid and choose your water level, w...ater temperature and dirtiness. Lots of wash options too, from a delicate rinse to a nearly 3 hour super wash. The timer is a bonus so you know when to come back and hang your washing out. I love that I can fit all my sheets or towels in the one load. It's built like a tank and it's comforting to know I'll never need to buy another machine, as this one will probably outlive me.

Love it, great machine
Easy to use and lots of choices for wash cycles, from general short cycle to long cycle and delay start, washes large loads easily, washes greasy clothes very well, use it every day, great for delicate loads also
Wonderful Washing Machine
We love our Speed Queen washing machine. So many wash options with this model. The electronic control panel is brilliant.
The length of each type of cycle is precise and easy to work out the best cycle for many various wash type loads. From the most delicate to very heavy duty and bulky (Quilt covers, ugg boots, sports runners and lace tablecloths).
Our last Speed Queen machine went for over 16 years without a single service call. This machine is worth every cent over the life we expect from it. Highly recommend this machine.
Based on our washing machine experiences with Speed Queen, our daughter bought the same model and loves hers too.
This current machine is the second one we have purchased. The Speed Queen is noticeably a good product.
It is very strong and is well finished. It is very easy to use and no problems with washing times etc. Normal household manchester and daily and specialty clothing, all are accommodated. Heavy duty clothing very good as well.
Purchased in July 2020 at Winnings for $2,895.00.
Best Machine by far
Our clothes have come out much cleaner and towels much softer. The clothes are no longer tangled.
A great investment I can’t believe that we wasted money on other machines in the past.
A great washing machine
I purchased the Speedqueen AWNE92 washing machine in July 2020 (delivered by Michael's Appliances). After many years of using another US-made machine it was time to replace. The Speedqueen definitely fits the bill. Great machine! and great service!
Purchased in July 2020.
If you are reading washing machine reviews like myself you have most likely tried all the made in China and Korea brands. This machine is built like a tank and everything comes out spotlessly clean. I can honesty say it has zero vibration you could place a crystal glass on the lid and it wouldn’t move. It’s definitely a case of spending a little extra money for quality. Thank you Speed Queen.
Speed queen is king
Replaced my old Kleenmaid ( SpeedQueen) washing machine after more than 20 years of faithful multiple loads per day duty. So it was a no brainer to replace it with a Speed Queen even though they are quite pricey. You get what you pay for. Great delivery service too.
Purchased in June 2020.
Absolutely love my Speed Queen, could not default it in anyway
Had a Maytag for 17 years and loved it. No longer available and no spares when we had a minor fault. Bought a very expensive top loader and hated it. Sold it after 6 months and bought the Speed Queen (commercial brand of Maytag)which I should have done in the first place, best machine ever
A happy and consistent maid for our clothes.
Bought 3 years ago
Hasn't skipped a beat
She's a workhorse and happy slave to our weekly, often daily watching piles.
The touchpad can be finicky at times
Touchpad did stop at one point, but this was repaired quickly and haven't had a problem since.
My sister recently stayed at our home and commented that she missed using our machine, it is that good.
Businesses with Integrity
Prior to 2 years of constant use, our Speed Queen was an absolute write off. We then contacted the original store that we had purchased from, Harvey Norman Everton Park and spoke to the owner Craig. On our behalf, Craig contacted Mark from Speed Queen. Mark completely replaced our machine at no charge. I would highly recommend any consumers to purchase from these two companies/men (mentioned above). They are men who have shown great integrity, old fashioned service and guarantees their products.

Replacement Speedqueen after 20 years, 1 year into it's life.
Went for the Second SQ after the old Kleenmaid leaked right on the 20 year mark (gearbox was noisy and timer dodgy) which considering it had moved house several time and only ever had one service for a broken belt was pretty good. Especially given the baby clothes, nappies and then Uniforms and teenage sports gear .
One year it is clear that it is essentially the same machine with the electronic panel being the difference. I went that way for the timed start to take advantage of Solar power during the day. Only complaint is that you cannot...leave the lid up and fill it. Appreciate it is nanny state regulations but I would pay money to be able to disable that particular feature. As for others opinion, a close friend saw it in action shortly after I bought it and will be buying one when his Samsung Front loader (which he reckons does not leave clothes smelling "washed") dies. He liked it as it cleans and is built like a tank. As for me, I do not expect to buy a new Speed Queen until after I'm dead.

Easy to use washing machine
This is a great washing machine, easy to use for everyone in the family. It has short and long cycles to suit your needs and cleans clothes professionally. The staff at Speed Queen were very helpful and emailed me specifications to ensure it was exactly what I wanted. Thanks!! We love the machine and are very happy with its capabilities.
Review collected in partnership with Speed Queen
Do any of the people praising this machine actually check what's going on in their machine. The wash cycle isn't long enough in my view so I have to re start the machine in order to get a longer wash. If you check the rinse water during the rinse cycle (lift the lid and look) there are still suds there, so I have to put it on an extra rinse cycle (towels are the worst sometimes needing 3 rinses). Yes I use 1/4 of recommended wash liquid and yes I have had technicians here thinking that suds in the rinse water is acceptable. All in all this was a dud purchase as it wastes electricity, water and time...Not Happy
Well built, cleans well, fast washing machine
I spent a large amount of time reading reviews and debating with friends and relatives the merits of spending $2,500 on a Speed Queen washing machine.
In summary: It was worth it, and I would not hesitate to buy this again.
If you're reading this then you've probably done your research and already know about the multitude of praise this machine garners on the internet.
I am comparing this to an 8 year old F&P 5kg top loader my parents own
- Built like a tank. Weighs 90kg and does not vibrate when washing ...
Very pleased with our new Speed Queen washing machine. Clothes are nice and clean and love the many options available to us. Fast and efficient. These machines are built to last and go the distant. Have been the owners of Kleenmaid and Maytag machines before purchasing our new Speed Queen. Would recommend these machines to everyone. Happy washing

I am so annoyed with myself for being sucked in to buying this lint machine! Nearly $3000 & all of our clothes are covered in fluff. I wish I'd researched better & realised that there is no lint fliter on this. How is this even possible on such an expensive machine?!
It's also very loud, but that's the least of the problems. How hard is it to just get a machine that washes clothes without fuss (and fluff!) & lasts longer that a few years?!
I've also noticed that it sometimes requires me to press the on/off button a couple of times before it turns on.
I wouldn't recommend this machine.
Solid, well built. Get's the job done!
Bought a Speed Queen AWNE92 on the advice of an older gentleman who had his (different model)for about 25 years. I'm impressed by how solidly this thing is built. Purchased over phone with a call the SQ office, was quickly processed and despatched and installed next day. It is definitely pricey, hoping to have it last for the next 25 years. Made in USA.
Now to find a solid and well built air con unit that will last 25 years.
Questions & Answers
Hi I'm about to purchase another machine had a Kleenmaid Industrial for years loved it . Eventually went water all over my floors so insurance claim and I was in a hurry and purchased a Simpson Ezy 11kg options annoy me only have 1 short cycle 20min but can only have it with a small load. Temperature spin and water levels are preprogrammed and top lid has lock once down hard to add more clothes in, now water leak do not want to replace flooring again just want a refund and put it towards another machine.
Liking the sound of Speed Queen especially after having a Kleenmaid: MY QUESTION IS: Do I do a manual dial or electronic panel advise please, thought about one persons comment that with arthritis dials were hard to turn later in life but are you prone to have more problems with electronics than dial?
Will purchase through Harvey Norman Ange
Craige C.Speed Queen
Hi Ange, We have both dial and touch control model which are equally easy to use. The touch control model has more cycle add options like prewash, soak, extra rinse and delay start which when programmed can be control by pressing one button, There is information on both @ speedqueen.com.au
does the Speed Queen model AWNA62 have a lint remover
Craige C.Speed Queen
The Speed Queen Home Range of top load washers have a neutral draining system which allows any lint to be drained away when the wash and rinse water is pumped from the machine making a lint filter unnecessary.
