Extended warranties are usually very inexpensive and can save you thousands in the future. Some can even cover extra costs that result, such as cost of food that spoils when your fridge dies. It's simple and inexpensive to purchase extended warranties and one of the smartest ways to protect your investment.

Appliances can be large, heavy and expensive. You probably don't have the special tools or expertise needed to fix them in a crisis. If you can spare a few thousand dollars without batting an eyelash for new appliances should they break tomorrow, don't buy a warranty. But if you're like most of us, protect yourself by purchasing inexpensive extended warranties when you buy a new product and save yourself big money in the long run.

Happy when working

SamBL 1/19/2022

The machine works great but 3 months after purchase went out. Took 3 weeks for warranty repair service out to look at and was told fuse went and would be up to six additional weeks for replacement part. Luckily the retailer provided replacement so we wouldn't have wait another 6 weeks to do laundry.

Heating element failed after 1.5 months.

Tony01 1/17/2022

The heating element failed after only one and a half months of normal use. We chose Speed Queen for their reputation for quality and durability, so this is particularly distressing. The new parts won't be shipped for another 4 weeks and repair scheduled some time after that.

DublNikl 1/15/2022

We thought we'd save money with another brand a few years ago and we got what we paid for....headaches!! Should have known that this is the best brand on the market...after all we see Speed Queen machines in laundromats all over the country! They have to be tough to take that kind of use and abuse.

My second speed queen

Steph10 1/12/2022

I have a 12 year old speed queen dryer that quit working. Repairman said it was the timer. And basically said "Good luck finding one." I had him order the part and also ordered one hoping for the best. 4 long weeks and later we gave up and bought a new dryer. The lint filter in the new dryer came with the edges frayed. Found that out when we cleaned lint trap and came away with scraped fingers. Our retailer sent repairman right away, he ordered the part and three weeks later it is up and running. The repairman was helpful and professional and even told my husband to pull the part out of the other dryer and use it until the part came in. My only reason for taking one star off was that speed queen's reputation as highest quality and dependability is hurt by the lack of quality control when a machine comes delivered with something so damaged.

Really good

MagicCorndog 12/29/2021

I got this as part of the Speed Queen set I've been wanting. I love the stainless tub and simple controls. I was a little surprised that the on switch is a touch sensor as opposed to a button, since Speed Queen built these to be simple. The lint trap is fixed so you clean it out in-place. The auto-dry feature leaves clothes damp so I just use the 60 minute setting - a common complaint with almost any new Energy Star dryer that my old commercial GE didn't have. All in all, it's a fine dryer as a companion to the washer for a matching set.

BBob2021 11/3/2021

It was time to replace our 20 year old Maytag washer & dryer. When we looked at their current models, we were disappointed by their flimsy and light manufacturing. We looked at the Speed Queen models and were immediately impressed by their sturdy, no-nonsense construction and design. We knew of their long-standing, unparalleled reputation and decided to purchase both the Speed Queen washer & dryer. We love how quietly they perform.

Door Open Error After Only 3 Months

Kelsey C 10/20/2021

My machine thinks my door is opened despite it not being opened. I regularly clean out the lint filter and take great care with my new dryer. Thankful it is under warranty HOWEVER the door latch that needs replaced is on back order and my vendor has no idea when it will come in. Meanwhile I am spending $70/week to dry our large family's laundry at the local laundry mat. It would be more but the washer is working just fine. So I have to load up many baskets several times per week of heavy, WET clothing to take to my local laundry mat which is a 10 minute drive. Thinking of getting a refurbished dryer from a resale shop just to get me through because this is ridiculous. It will probably be faster to get an entire new machine replacement but they won't allow that. My machine is only 3 months old!

Very unhappy buyer

RickyJ50 10/19/2021

I used my dryer 4 or 5 times.The dryer stopped heating.Only cold air blowing out the vent system that vents to my patio.I never got a product manuel with my machine.I called the dealer where I bought the machines.He told me to go on line to find a service center near my home. I did that and then called the service center.I got the meanest rudest person in captivity on the other end.After a long time on hold the rude person came back and barked an appointment date 3 weeks out.Then after 2.5 weeks and 3 days before my appointment a nicer lady called me to cancel my appointment and said that they didn't have the part to fix it.I have no clue how they knew that unless this is a common problem with this dryer.She changed my appointment another 12 days out.Now i'm a month without a dryer.No attempt to help me as a new customer.Actually now I'm trying to figure out what I got myself into for almost 2500.00 bucks.I 'm waiting for this service companies next call to give me another excuse why they can't fix my dryer.

Died an untimely death

Winnie 10/16/2021

I bought a Speed Queen washer and dryer because of the history of reliability. Apparently, my dryer was the exception. The dryer seemed to work fine at the start, but it did make a constant loud ticking noise. A service tech came out and said it was being caused by the tensioner and a bad ball bearing and that he needed to order a part. He said it was ok to use the dryer in the meantime, so I washed a load after he left. The dryer stopped after about 10 minutes and completely died. Tried plugging/rep lugging and turning breaker off and on. Nothing. No lights, no power. The appliance center offered to replace with the same model but that it would take 6 months. I opted for getting a different brand. When the dryer worked, it did a good job…I particularly liked the steam function. And the company did stand by its warranty. I kept the washer and have my fingers crossed that it's not a lemon, too.
