    Speed Queen Medium Speed Washer


With a 200G factor across the range this hardmount Speed Queen machine is not only the workhorse of the oldest and largest commercial laundry equipment manufacturer in the world, but represents with it’s true medium speed extraction capabilities, a direct saving on electrical utilities associated with tumble drying. Inverter drive motor, reduced 66dB sound level, 11% water reduction on the industry leading predecessor, flexible programming options with the Quantum microprocessor, a new A frame 20X stronger than the previous model, proven shaft, bearing and seal in a new pillow block design housing and simplified installation.


Quantum™ System

The on-premises laundry business is changing. Managers today must be flexible in adapting quickly to changes to linen processing formulas, while keeping operating costs within budget. Features that a few years ago were considered luxuries are now essential components to doing business.

Speed Queen’s cutting-edge Quantum™ System, gives managers the power to respond instantly to changes in order to produce superior wash quality. Programming ease and user-friendly operation ensure our technology makes your life easier, not more complicated.

Quantum™ Gold Control


Quantum™ Gold offers operations the pinnacle in flexibility with a total of 30 programmable cycles and 30 programmable water levels. Managers can easily program their washer-extractors with the aid of a PC or PDA through an infrared connection. This port also is the manager’s glimpse at the laundry operation as machine audit data can be downloaded to a PC or PDA. A maximum extraction speed of 200 G-Force helps commercial laundries rein in energy costs by reducing drying times.


Classic Durability

For more than 100 years, the Speed Queen name has been synonymous with quality construction. That reputation continues today. All our SC models are built on the proven Gamma A-Frame design for extreme durability. In addition, Speed Queen uses stainless steel inner and outer tubs and adds a high quality stainless steel top for long-lasting defense against corrosive laundry chemicals.



Speed Queen’s new intuitive chemical dispenser is a staff favorite. It enables them to add up to four laundry chemicals at the beginning of the cycle. Then, our machine does the rest, adding the chemicals automatically to the load at exactly the right time. Now staff will never forget to add the softener.



An Easy Open-and-Shut Case

Not only is the SC’s molded rubber door handle easy to grip, open and close, its durable construction, combined with a rugged-reliable door lock, ensures years of worry-free, dependable operation.


Door Opening

A large door opening makes loading and unloading fast and easy. Our heavy-duty stainless steel door features vacuum tight sealing to keep water inside the machine where it belongs. The door lock, as well as the heat treated, shatter-proof circular door glass, helps operators safely view the wash process.

Your Water Guardian

Water is an expensive part of running an on-premises laundry, and can often be wasted when stuck drain valves are undetected for months. Speed Queen’s advanced leak detection system acts as your laundry’s water guardian by monitoring the washer’s drain system. If a leak is detected, staff is alerted to the condition with an indicator light on the display. This guardian also monitors for slow drain conditions that can impact cycle time.


The alternate rotating wash action produces excellent finished wash quality without damaging delicate fabrics.

Superior Serviceability

Speed Queen’s removable top and front panels are designed for minimum down time and ease of service. Now troubleshooting electrical systems as well as
accessing drain valve components is easier than ever.

Low Water Usage

Water is a precious resource and all Speed Queen SC models are designed to curb its use. With Quantum™ Gold, owners can customize 30 water levels in each wash segment.


Triple-up Seal

Heavy-Duty Bearings and Trunnion Assembly

Bearings are perhaps the most important part on a washer extractor and Speed Queen gives them the ultimate in protection with a triple-lip seal. Add to the equation a stainless steel sleeve around our heavy-duty trunnion shaft and your washer extractor is ready for years of worry-free performance.
