Speed Queen Introduces DOE-compliant Top Load Washer


RIPON, Wis. -Speed Queen®, a 100-year-old iconic commercial laundry brand known for reliable and durable equipment, is introducing a top load washing machine with water-saving features for vended laundry.

"Speed Queen is passionate about the consistently powerful performance of its machines, which is why we can provide a superior product," said Dan Bowe, Speed Queen's North American Sales Manager. "This top load washer offers worry-free operation and is built to last."

The washer incorporates operational and functional modifications that reduce water usage and improve the Modified Energy Factor (MEF). These features ensure the machine meets Department of Energy regulations that went into effect this year. Just as important, the new top load machine has not compromised superior wash performance to comply with the regulations. It continues to deliver Speed Queen's recognized superior washability.

The 2013 top load washing machines will reduce water consumption by up to seven gallons per load. A new mixing valve helps to regulate water flow, providing an optimal rinse pattern across a wide range of inlet pressures. Optimizing the rinse cycle allows laundromat owners to reduce utility costs, a significant benefit for those businesses are in municipalities where water costs have doubled in recent years.

Other features of the 2013 top load washing machine include:

  • A curved, four van agitator to deliver a 210 degree stroke - the longest in the industry - for superb washing results,
  • An exclusive stainless steel washtub that won't corrode, chip, crack or pit in normal use,
  • A six "V" mounted suspension for superior handling of unbalanced loads which helps reduce wear and tear,
  • A commercial grade porcelain enamel top and lid for optimum durability

Quantum® Gold is also available on the 2013 top load washer. It allows customers to customize their wash with 31 cycle options. The controls offers a digital display for vend price, and cycle time countdown, as well as three temperature selections for hot, warm or cold water, plus three fabric selections for normal, permanent press or delicate, as well as solid modifier levels.
