I purchased Speed Queen front load washer and the companion driver with electronic panels in November 2015. I have had some performance concerns with both the washer and dryer that have not been adequately addressed but what is most disturbing is that the door on the washer fell off its plastic hinge and it's not covered under warranty. I had to pay $250 to replace the plastic hinge. For a company that claims that their products are built to last "25 years" and charges more than double their competitors is a huge shame. We used to have a front loading machine and drier for 11 years with only one repair.
