(More customer reviews)I am the proud owner of a washing machine built in Wisconsin.
That's right. The Good Ole USA does still build some great things and this is one of them. The Speed Queen top loader represents (in my words) a winner and the most refined development of a classic top load washing machine. It is clearly the result of Speed Queen's many decades of experience buiding and selling machines to American families and launder mats across this wide world. This machine is refined to the nth degree to do nothing but produce clean soft clothes day in and day out over the years and do it with a few simple settings and no worries or front loader musty smells and expensive service agreements. Use the money you would have spent in the service agreement for that front loader from oversees you are eyeing and buy a solid washer from the USA.
Mine is white. They all are. Her paint job has three different coats. I swear the last must be a clear coat because she shines like a soft pearl in our laundry. She has no lights or buttons and she needs none.
She is undemanding. To start, I set the water level (yes, I do that, not the machine), select one of three cycles, measure the detergent and toss it into her beautifully made stainless steel wash tub and maybe add some softener into the best and most effective agitator available in a washer. Then close the lid, start the washer and walk away worry free about the result.
I can hear it run softly. It is a sound much like the soothing sound of a window fan on a hot summer day. It does not disturb but instead reassures that all is going well with the wash. Soon enough you learn her songs and can tell where the she is in the wash cycle just from the sound with no fancy and soon to be broken status lights or a chime to tell me when she's finished doing what she does best, what she does better than any washer in the world.
She is simple yet refined to the nth degree in that simple purpose.
She is an American built washing machine doing what she does best in an American Home.
What more do you want, steam?
