Speed Queen washer washing area rugs. Washed on XL load, Fuller 86 detergent, Purex Softener Crystals, and warm water. The rugs become unbalanced in the final spin cycle. Will the washer do the washer dance? Will it even spin? Tune in to see!

    I am about to have a speed queen this week. I am SOOOO excited. Can NOT wait.

    Sorry for the delayed reply – was on vacation. Yes, it should spin freely. The dryer is also a push-to-start, vs. a sep button – nice! Congrats on your new Speed Queens – may they bring you many years of service!

    My new AWN 542 was delivered today (thanks to your “laundry day” video)! A question for you … should the timer/starter knob spin freely around after I have pulled it out to start the machine? I don’t think I’ve ever had a washer do that … is it to keep me from inadvertently turning the knob in case I forget to push it in first?

    Lulu, the rubber flange is built into the drain pipe that is supplied with the washer. It does a good job of holding the drain pipe in the standpipe. It does not “seal it off” — if it did, water would not be able to drain down. Overflowing suds? Only if they over filled with detergent (quite possible), or have slow pipes. Never had any issues with mine. Sounds like that reviewer had a special situation with the water softener. Congrats on your purchase!

    Dan, today I bought the SQ AWN542. Saw this on a review: “the drain output on this is very strong. There is water/suds coming out of the stand-pipe. I had to re-plumb so that my water softener had it’s own drain. The washer needs its own stand-pipe and you really do need to use the rubber end-piece that comes with it so that you don’t get back-up. The rubber piece fits on the end of the drain pipe and creates a seal as well as holds it in place very nicely”. Do I need to do this? Tnx Lulu

    Sorry for the delayed reply…I actually have 2 sets of these now and love them. I moved from Whirlpools to Speed Queens and have been completely satisfied for my needs.

    Thanks for the compliment…and no, nothing from SQ on my videos – I’ve made them for folks like me that were searching for information on this great company – SQ does not advertise, so I thought I would “pay it forward” and make them to help others out in learning about the machines. I had some extra time to put into this video, and wish I had more time to do others. Enjoy!

    Love this video. Your creativity is blossoming with the music and comments. Is Speed Queen aware of your promotional campaign on their behalf? If not, they should be and if they are aware, I hope you’re being rewarded.

    I saw a couple in home improvement store looking at washers and dryers. I walked up to them and told them not to waste their time with the brands offered. I told them Speed Queen was the best and where they could purchase SQ. I’m sure they thought I was nuts.

    How much would you recommend a speed queen? i was going to spend about 1100 and a whirlpool tomorrow but these things look like they are built to last. Im looking for a washer that really cleans things. They are a tad expensive but it seems likes it might be a better investment. would you recommend?

    Nice a gentle cycle washing those rugs.

  14. DanManTN on Fri, 10th Aug 2012 7:54 am

    Yep, and always dry your rugs outside – or drip dry and it will spare the rubber backing.

    - thanks Merker!

    Great SQ! I always enjoy full water and small loads.

    compliments 4 your fantastic vid 🙂

    We had the “Super Surgulator” on our 1984 Whirlpool…was the supreme agitator. Nothing is as soothing as a belt-drive washer. 🙂

    Very nice wash Dan. Very good turnover and on low speed! The action of this machine reminds me alot of an old Whirlpool/Kenmore with the long arc and gentle yet powerful agitation. I like how it pauses to let the dirt settle. My Maytag Atlantis does this and of course My Whirlpool has a neutral drain. Amazing how well that balances.

    Thanks – counting the days till Spring as well.  At least a little “Spring Cleaning” can make it seem a bit like Spring. 🙂

    Nice video – quite dirty water too, I always enjoy dirty wash water. I can’t wait for spring when I do my area rugs and clean carpets!
