Peace of mind!
Had a Kleenmaid for many years, which is a rebadged Speed Queen. The time had come to replace it, went through the process of researching various models built for the mass market and reading so many reviews. Came to the conclusion that I would get a lot of gimmicks and a machine that wouldn't last. Then wondered why I had wasted my time, as you get what you pay for! So pleased that I spent more and got a good quality product. Delivered and set up by Speed Queen with no fuss at all.

User review of Speed Queen for domestic use by satisfied customer with engineering background
We purchased a Speed Queen ( electronic controls ) from Harvey Norman this year .
Expensive but worth it !
We bought it for domestic use, even though it is renowned for commercial quality & long life
We decided to write a review as we think it satisfies all our needs including reliability and value for money We have NEVER written a review before this. We have NO links to the manufacturer
We thought the price was high until I saw the display unit , cut out to show internal parts , at Harvey Norman Taren Point
I am sure we will get ...

the story continues
We had a Kleenmaid for nearly 20 hard years of washing. We were very pleased to be able to buy the new model for another 20 years! Purchase, service, installation all good.
Money very well spent
Don't research any other type of washing machine as this is the best. The options for washing cycles, load sizes, water temp and extras such as soaking and rinse cycles are numerous. The option for a short efficient cycle is perfect. We are very happy with the overall performance of the machine, how it looks in our black and white laundry and the service and installation were spot on. Definitely would recommend this machine.

An excellent product!
Delighted with our new washer! Surprised at how spotlessly clean everything is after such short cycles. Very user friendly and the level of service received was excellent. Thank you Speed Queen.

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.

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.

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!

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.

Questions & Answers
How long is the fastest load
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
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
Hi Ange, I was advised that the electronic panel is just as reliable as the manual dial, so I paid the extra and so far so good, love all the extra washing options and the push-button ease.
Can you leave the lid up while machine fills up with the AWNE92BLACK machine?
No the lid must be closed it has a sensor that pauses machine when lid is lifted.
