Nicole Potgieter Buyers info ADEE8 Tumble Drier Eastern Cape I've owned a SQ washer + dryer for well over 20yrs. I have 2 children + am a farmer's wife so you can imagine the MANY dirty overalls + shirts with mud grease blood etc that needs cleaning regularly. We own a sand stone quarry + are on a gravel road -thus tons of dust. I also have always had dogs and cats, whose blankets + beds need washing weekly. My machines are used almost daily + with large unusual loads but carry on regardless!! I have never owned another brand + will not change!! Nicole Potgieter Alison Russel Buyers info ADEE8 Tumble Drier Kwa-Zulu Natal I bought my Speed Queen 27 years ago and it was an enormous purchase for me. This machine, however, has never let me down and does not owe me a cent! Therefore, it turned out to be a phenomenal buy! Alison Russel Bruno Dinino Buyers info ADEE8 Tumble Drier Gauteng We've had our Speed Queen for nearly 30 years!!! Had repairs only twice since we bought it. It is an easy understanding, very reliable washing machine. After all these years, our machine still looks good and works well. We would NEVER have any other washing machine, but a Speed Queen!!! Bruno Dinino Melvin Dodgen Buyers info ADEE8 Tumble Drier Western Cape
Twenty one years ago, my wife and I decided to buy two SPEED QUEEN machines a washer and a dryer. The machines never failed or disappointed us and whenever we walk into a shop that sells speed queens we would just stand there and admire it. We can honestly say SPEED QUEEN laundry machines really deserve it's name.

Jean Sleigh Buyers info ADEE8 Tumble Drier Western Cape My speed queen washer is by no doubt the very best of ALL my electrical appliance we have ever bought. In 38yrs of marriage its travelled from Jhb to Cape Town. Washed my babies’ clothes and my parents’. It’s a part of our family. Jean Sleigh At Davel Buyers info ADEE8 Tumble Drier Kwa-Zulu Natal We bought the machine about 25/26 years ago because we still used cotton nappies for both our children. After they grew up, we started a guesthouse and the big tub machine came in handy to do the daily washing for all the guest rooms. A home appliance that you can rely on. At Davel Martin Prinsloo Buyers info ADEE8 Tumble Drier Free State This is indeed a very good appliance to have in any household. It just doesn't break. Martin Prinsloo Karin Kahn Buyers info ADEE8 Tumble Drier Western Cape A note of appreciation to your company for producing such an amazing washing machine. I purchased my SQ about 15yrs ago (2nd hand) but even so, I have never been happier. She truly is a work horse of note, in fact she seems to function better under a heavy load. I have had many different makes of washing machines over the years, but can say without a doubt that the SQ out performs all of them. It is very reliable + for me, the best washing machine on the market, I would recommend it to anyone.

Elizabeth Swart Buyers info ADEE8 Tumble Drier Gauteng I bought my Speed Queen washing machine and Tumble Dryer at the end of 1995. Since then it has been working real hard. It started back then washing and drying my sons nappies and now it is washing and drying their overalls!! In all this time I can count on one hand the number of times that a call had to be logged for repairs and then I would not even use all fingers. I would not consider buying any other make as the service and work that these machines have done over the years were beyond excellent. Elizabeth Swart Deborah Whitfield Buyers info ADEE8 Tumble Drier Gauteng Without a doubt, my washing machine has been the most steady and hassle-free purchase of my life. It has ALWAYS been there for me and has NEVER let me down and is still going strong. I use my washing machine virtually everyday [for 21 years] and have never ever had any clothing ruined or spoiled by it. If only All purchases in life could be this great, wouldn't life be wonderful!!! Deborah Whitfield Lynne Lewis Buyers info ADEE8 Tumble Drier Western Cape My beloved Speed Queen washing machine is about 25 years old. What I love most about my Speed Queen is that you can pause the wash at any point in the cycle if necessary or add an item that should have gone in but was overlooked - even once the machine has filled with water! There is really nothing to beat a top-loading, large capacity Speed Queen washing machine. Lynne Lewis Beryl Fraser Buyers info ADEE8 Tumble Drier Mpumalanga Our journey with Speedqueen started with a large family gathering on the farm in Zimbabwe '91 - our new acquisition contributed hugely to the success of the festivities. This machine was a vital part of our essential furniture when we relocated. We have built up a 24 bed B&B business + expanded the laundry to 5 top loaders + 1 dryer, all essential. We love the simplicity of operating these machines especially for staff. We have been blessed by the longevity of our Speedqueens and their wonderful service. Beryl Fraser Lea Downing Buyers info ADEE8 Tumble Drier Garden Route I had it for over 20 years and I have never had a problem with it. Subsequently I moved to a retirement village cottage where I only had place for an undercounter, so I gave this 22 year old Speedqueen to my daughter who needed it to do the laundry of the 5 self-catering cottages. Lea Downing Susan Carlson Buyers info ADEE8 Tumble Drier Kwa-Zulu Natal Our Speed Queen has undoubtedly been one of the most important investments in our 48 years together. Both my husband and I and the three daughters we have raised have been fully involved in sporting and outdoor activities. To cater for all the washing our Speed Queen has been a loyal servant. She certainly has been a QUEEN in our life. Susan Carlson Yvonne Bertasso Buyers info ADEE8 Tumble Drier Gauteng I am the proud owner of my Speed Queen Washer for over 20 years now. Her High Capacity Load is fantastic as she gets used 3 times a week without fail. She is certainly "THE QUEEN" of Washing Machines - That I can certainly vouch for. Yvonne Bertasso Lyndsay Jackson Buyers info ADEE8 Tumble Drier Western Cape My husband bought these two trusty old ladies circa 1995, when he opened his guest house. No matter what, they just keep going. They've seamlessly moved from servicing guests, to coping with our family of 4 and now they're still happily working for just my husband and me. They've definitely grown older more gracefully than we have. Best of all, they require minimal attention, with very few call-outs - so un-demanding! Gotta love my Speed Queens! Lyndsay Jackson Martie Jacobs Buyers info ADEE8 Tumble Drier Gauteng We purchased our machine in 1995. This machine has never given any problems and I have never been disappointed in any way with this unit. Martie Jacobs Dewald Niemand Buyers info ADEE8 Tumble Drier Gauteng Best machine ever. Old, got it in 1985. One service and still running one or two times a week. Dewald Niemand Jonathan Hericourt Buyers info ADEE8 Tumble Drier Gauteng When I bought my current house 10yrs ago, the owner included the washer & dryer in the purchase price. The machines were already very old, at least 15yrs & I was a bit dubious about whether this was a good deal. However, since then both machines have been a fantastic bonus & have given me another 10yrs of excellent service. I had previously heard of the reputation of Speed Queen, but I can now safely say that it is a reputation very well justified. I will never go with another make. Jonathan Hericourt Albie Cabrita Buyers info ADEE8 Tumble Drier Gauteng I bought my Speed Queen washing machine in 1995/6 and it has proved to be absolutely reliable. It has worked relentlessly all these years. It has only needed a call out once - about 18months ago and it is still going strong. My next Speed Queen (if I need one) will probably outlive me. Albie Cabrita Michelle Brits Buyers info ADEE8 Tumble Drier Gauteng I bought my Speed Queen 30 years ago. Not one day has my Speed Queen disappointed me, when my kids were still home I did a couple of loads a week, to present day I am still washing with my trusted Queen. My machine has moved with me from South Africa to Botswana and back, I always just connect and have the confidence that my washing will be done. Everyone should know what a amazing product you sell, 30 years old, never broken down and still going strong. Speed Queen fan for life. Michelle Brits Debbie Farr Buyers info ADEE8 Tumble Drier Gauteng Hi, I am Debbie's Speed Queen tumble dryer...'I am 27 yrs old!!!

Reginald Els Buyers info ADEE8 Tumble Drier KwaZulu-Natal My speed Queen is the best washing machine I've ever had, got it for more than 20 years now and it just keep going. Reginald Els Rita Lowrie Buyers info ADEE8 Tumble Drier Gauteng I’m very happy with my Speed Queen washer and dryer. I have had my washer and dryer now for +-25 years. They do work hard as we are a family of four, with two teenage girls. I would never have any other brand but Speed Queen. Rita Lowrie Dale Gauldie Buyers info ADEE8 Tumble Drier Gauteng We bought our washer + dryer soon after my first child was born 1988/1989. I am so totally impressed with the reliability, durability and consistent smooth running of my machines. Now that I have a grandchild it has gone full circle with the baby stuff and frequent washes. Dale Gauldie Elzahn Krause Buyers info ADEE8 Tumble Drier Gauteng I got the speedqueen washing machine from my parents in law as a wedding gift. I was very upset that they did not give me an opportunity to choose my own washing machine... Now after 27 years of washing I am so thankful they did not let me choose and that they bought a speedqueen. The wisdom of older people. My speedqueen is still going strong and washes the washing for a family of 5. No hiccups. Elzahn Krause Awie Bosman Buyers info ADEE8 Tumble Drier Gauteng Our Speed Queen washing machine and dryer are the second generation after Noah. At least 30+++ years. They reared two children and are still going strong with a call out to rejuvenate some minor parts. Our machines are family. Awie Bosman Marie’Lise Ferreira Buyers info ADEE8 Tumble Drier Gauteng I have had my Speed Queen for more than twenty years. It is the best washing machine by far. It is versatile, from large pieces of linen and blankets to baby clothes! My Speed Queen is part of the family and will follow where ever life might lead us. Marie'Lise Ferreira Cathy Bothma Buyers info ADEE8 Tumble Drier Western Cape In 2007 I was looking to own property. There was no ways that I was going to buy the house if my SPEED QUEEN could not go with me. After much precise measuring... It's a tight fit, but she is still there where she was placed 13 years ago!! Obviously I bought the house. So on the 25th January 2021 I will be celebrating my 25th SILVER ANNIVERSARY my amazing Speed Queen. AMAZING!!! I will not buy any other brand should I ever need a new washing machine. Cathy Bothma Elizabeth Woolls Buyers info ADEE8 Tumble Drier Gauteng I have had my speed queen for nearly 30 years. My joke has always been that if I ever get divorced, my speed queen will be the first to go with me. Elizabeth Woolls Hennie vd Walt Buyers info ADEE8 Tumble Drier Free State Ons Speed Queen is waarlik 'n "Queen. Sy is tussen 35 en 40 jaar in ons diens. Geen probleem, altyd skoon en netjies gewas. Ons is baie gelukkig en tevrede met ons "Queen". Hennie vd Walt Caron Langley Buyers info ADEE8 Tumble Drier Gauteng Never been happier. I have both a washing machine and a dryer. I had a problem just once in the 20 years I have owned them with the washing machine, but not serious. Would recommend them to anyone, they both still going strong. Caron Langley Evelyn McCulloch Buyers info ADEE8 Tumble Drier Gauteng You ask how I feel about my Speed Queen ..... Well after 40 odd years of regular usage and very few call outs I reckon my answer is GRATEFUL!!! Evelyn McCulloch Wilco Meyer Buyers info ADEE8 Tumble Drier Mpumalanga I bought a Speed Queen washing machine in 2007. We used it in our house until 2015. In the meanwhile I was asked to start an anti poaching operation to help protect the Rhino's. I then moved my Speed Queen washing machine to the camp. We were 9 people that used the machine. That machine was working every day. The machine was standing under a little roof on a pallet. The machine worked until June 2020. What an amazing piece of equipment. Wilco Meyer Steyn Verster Buyers info ADEE8 Tumble Drier Gauteng We bought our Speed Queen washing machine more than 20 years ago. Over the years our machine washed load after load after load after load of washing, with the barest minimal of maintenance, and absolute reliability. Its still going strong every day, and we love it! Steyn Verster Rina Erasmus Buyers info ADEE8 Tumble Drier Gauteng I can declare that these are the most reliable machines ever made. There is just no other machine that can beat a Speed Queen and I am proud to be associated with the Speed Queen family. Rina Erasmus Peter Hall Buyers info ADEE8 Tumble Drier Gauteng After two home moves and 27 years of washing, my Speed Queen needed its first service. After full inspection from the technician, I decided to rather acquire a new Speed Queen. Within a day, the technician arrived at my home and installed a new machine which will do the laundry ‘twist’ for the next 27 years. Thank you Speed Queen for reliability, durability and service. It has been a real treat. Peter Hall Rhenier Kleyn Buyers info ADEE8 Tumble Drier Free State Although ageing, like her Royal Highness, Queen Elizabeth, our Speed Queen remains hardworking + loyal to her people. She never complain, always gives her best + never disappoints. She has been with us for 24yrs + over this period, have washed an astounding nearly 7000 bundles. Although break pads, a water pump + the likes were replaced, she still is an original beauty, which we really appreciate. Thank you Speed Queen for building these great machines, for adding value to our lives. Rhenier Kleyn Basil Dakes Buyers info ADEE8 Tumble Drier Gauteng Our Speed Queen has been with us since July 1994. What a fantastic machine that is so easy to use and always does a great job. We use the washer at least twice a week and considering that it is over 26 years old it has only been serviced 3 times. This is an amazing performance record from an appliance that makes life easier for us. Basil Dakes Elmarie Krige Buyers info ADEE8 Tumble Drier Gauteng I LOVE my Speedqueen; she is a TRUE and worthy "queen" and is worthy of her "crown" and has served me loyally for over 25 years! She is a indestructible lady who is not afraid of ANYTHING, just load her belly full and she gets on with the job - whether it is a blanket or dirty jeans or dainty ladies' stuff, she does it cleanly every time! Elmarie Krige Melinda Abbey Buyers info ADEE8 Tumble Drier Gauteng My machine is now 28 - perhaps a few more- years old and has been used non stop. All I can say is that this machine has been the best purchase I ever made, it has been a loyal work horse with no problems and I would buy another without hesitation. My family has often said that they would have to bury the machine with me when the time came but are also hoping to inherit it - bit of a dilemma! Melinda Abbey Peter Lloyd Buyers info ADEE8 Tumble Drier Gauteng The best machines. Bought my first machines during 1987. Then new ones during 2004. There is no alternative to Speed Queen. Peter Lloyd
