Posted November 23rd, 2022

Speed queen top load washers are built to last and handle large loads of laundry. These washers utilize heavy-duty components and minimal electronics which makes them easy to repair and last longer.

The Speed Queen company was founded in Ripon, Wisconsin in 1908 as Barlow & Seeling Manufacturing. It was not until 1928 that they adopted the name “Speed Queen.” Today, a little over a 110 years later, the company is primarily run from Ripon, Wisconsin.

Over the course of the years Speed Queen has pursued two goals:

1. Making the best washing machines in the world.

2. Serving the communities in which the brand is evolving.

Over the past century, Speed Queen has become known for having the most durable and long-lasting washers on the market. Each washing machine made by Speed Queen is designed to last for 10,400 wash cycles, which equates to approximately 25 years of use!
