Speed Queen owner: questions
After struggling for six years with a GE FL that is now on its last legs, I've decided to go back to a basic top loader. After much research, I've settled on the Speed Queen, based mostly on its simplicity but also that I didn't find much negative about it.
Which model did you get? I'm leaning toward to the AWN432 since it's two-speed and has the extra rinse switch (my kids have sensitive skin).
Were you able to get a deal? There are only a couple of dealers in my area, and the lowest price I found was $649.
Any with a second-floor installation? With my GE, it's hard to know if it's the bearings or an unstable floor or a combo of both that causes the super loud spinning. My kids can't sleep down the hall if the washer is going. And with the looooong cycle times, it's hard to plan the day with naps and laundry.
