Another Speed Queen TL member
Had an 8 yr TL Kenmore Super Capacity (appx 3.2 cubic feet) that I inherited with the home I purchased. It recently needed a part and my nephew did the repair. I began noticing my clothes were left with more wetness and figured I'd purchase a new one before this became costly.
My nephew stated to buy simple - no costly circuit boards.
I researched for about 6 weeks and found the horror stories of FL and HE machines of years past. I was also aware that maybe these companies have addressed the problems and now they are improved. However, only time will tell and I didn't want to take the chance.
The many, many positive reviews of SQ TL washers is what sold me. I have only had it 2 weeks, but here's the pro's:
1. Wash almost twice as much in one load and all gets cleans (almost same capacity as older Kenmore TL)
2. Drying time is lessened (although not by much, perhaps 10-15 min).
3. Wash cycle is about 15 min less than old TL and clothes are cleaner.
4. Dried clothes are softer (probably bc it rinses out the soap suds?).
So far, I'm in love! Will update at 6months.
