The Perfect Wash

Speed Queen top load washers feature a one of a kind wash system that not only delivers the best wash available, but also takes care of clothes. Our auto fill system guarantees that every load uses the optimal amount of water for an effective wash. The tub and agitator work together to create a gentle wash action that moves the optimal amount of water through the clothes providing the customer both a premium wash and premium level of fabric care.


Auto Fill: Designed not just to do laundry, but to know laundry.

Each load of laundry is unique: different fabrics, different soil levels and different sizes all mean different wash settings. Until now, it was your job to memorize them. Not anymore. Our unique Auto Fill feature checks that every load uses the right amount of water for an effective wash. Engineered with patent-pending sensing technology, Speed Queen® top load washers account for fabric type, absorbency—even the sizes of items being washed—to determine optimal water levels for better wash results.


Reinventing the Agitator

In the 2018 top load washer, even the agitator serves a new purpose: a power source to push water through laundry. This revolutionary redesign means cleaner clothes, fewer tangled messes, and minimized damage to delicate fabrics—in other words, the Wash advantages of a front load washer in a commercial-grade, top load design.

Protecting your Clothes

Commercial laundry technology gets quality results. Our new 2018 top load washer proves that—not only in a superior wash, but by the way clothing itself is treated. Fabrics sustain less wear and tear. In fact, our results show significant enhancement in damage prevention as compared to previous Speed Queen models.

Customise your Wash

Speed Queen top load washers have the most customisable controls on the market, giving you flexibility to do your laundry your way.


This cycle is the best choice for sturdy fabrics, heavily soiled fabrics, and stains. Combine it with a higher soil level for more stain removal.


Save energy with this cycle designed for everyday, lightly soiled garments. It uses less water—and less hot water.


Choose your own water temperature. On non-ECO cycles, the water temperature is determined by the temperature of the incoming water supply.


Choose your own water level—or set it to Auto Fill for the perfect amount of water for your fabric and load size.


Our commercial laundry experience tells us that sorting the load by type and then by soil level is the optimal way to wash. The TR6 provides the flexibility to add or subtract agitation time depending on each load’s soil level.


Choose a wash cycle designed for specific fabrics types, save energy, or increase your wash action for the ultimate control over your laundry.
