Testimony to Speed Queen Washing Machine’s Durability

speed-queen-washing-machine-flooded-in-jhbThis is an amazing story! Kathy Pederson wrote to tell us about her Speed Queen washing machine that survived Johannesburg’s torrential November 2016 storm. This is what she had to say…

“I bought my Speed Queen many years ago – last week we had a flood and the machine was waist deep in water !!!!
I opened the front, dried it out – and it WORKED….. amazing.”


100 years. It’s a long time for any company to be at the forefront of an industry. And you’d think that a company that’s been able to lead for that long must have a finely honed craft — a premier product. Well, you’d be right.

For more than a century, Speed Queen has built a legacy on providing equipment that stands up to any commercial laundry challenge. We make no compromises in performance. We refuse to be outdone in reliability and efficiency. Some of our competitors may think that a residential machine wrapped in a rugged exterior passes for commercial grade. We believe that strength comes from within.

Speed Queen machines are built specifically for the commercial environment. We use metal where others use plastic. Our world-class Test Lab rigorously pushes our products far beyond the conditions they’ll face in the field. We believe in being there when our customers need us most. And we work hard at every point of our manufacturing process to ensure that our machines reflect that belief.
