I do not like the fancy electronic controls that take 5 minutes of pre-wash nonsense before they get down to business. I see it as more things to fail. I miss the simplicity of being able to add a dropped sock once washing has started. I know it is still possible with new machines but you have to know the secret handshake and it disrupts the cycle. I get bullied enough by my computer, I like my washing machines stupid and obedient.
I looked up Speed Queen and all I could find were commercial products and a "local" distributor that is at least 2 hours away.
They have them at my local Fred's Appliance. They are pretty cool, all metal parts for gears and stuff. All mechanical option.
I have a White Westinghouse washer and dryer I bought back in the 1980's. They both still work fine and I hope they will outlast me. I have several friends who bought new units and have already had to have repairs done. Put me in the mechanical controls camp also.
I recently replaced a 4-year-old Maytag that the transmission replaced under warranty. This time I bought the extended warranty as I don't expect it to last 5 years. It's the first extended warranty I've ever purchased. Kind of see it as mandatory the way things are built now.
If you purchased the extended warranty you won't need it. The Maytag will work just fine----until the extended warranty runs out.
