Professional delivery and installation is available for every product we sell. We would be happy to coordinate delivery and installation for you.

Extended warranties are usually very inexpensive and can save you thousands in the future. Some can even cover extra costs that result, such as cost of food that spoils when your fridge dies. It's simple and inexpensive to purchase extended warranties and one of the smartest ways to protect your investment.

Appliances can be large, heavy and expensive. You probably don't have the special tools or expertise needed to fix them in a crisis. If you can spare a few thousand dollars without batting an eyelash for new appliances should they break tomorrow, don't buy a warranty. But if you're like most of us, protect yourself by purchasing inexpensive extended warranties when you buy a new product and save yourself big money in the long run.

Still new, so far very happy

Robbyr 8/12/2022

Nice to make a major purchase of a product MADE IN AMERICA! We would be MUCH better off if we'd shut down trade and bring it all back home. Well known reputation for quality. The 5 year warranty is great - if it gets through the first five, they'll probably out live us. Dryer works just as one would expect - goes in wet, comes out dry! Easily clean lint trap. We're very happy with this and our new washer....

Just another tech guy 8/9/2022

I don't know if it's the commercial nature or what, but this one is quite loud to operate. Otherwise, it does a really good job. The auto-sense drying is much better than the LG's it replaced.

Caution 8/8/2022

Three months after installation our dryer experienced a meltdown. The door ajar alarm came on and stays on, the dryer can't be shutoff, the heat doesn't work nor do any of the controls. Customer service has been virtually no help and we've since gone back to the source of purchase for recommendation for repair service. Extremely disappointing as we purchased Speed Queen because of its reputation for reliability and durability.

Best quality and value.

Anne50 7/26/2022

Not too long ago we had purchased our Speed Queen washer (the companion model to the DR5003WE dryer), and I love it. It's simple to use, convenient, works well and American made, too! Once our old dryer became obsolete, we knew we wanted a Speed Queen dryer, and just as I am with our washer, I am well pleased with our new dryer. Again, it's simple to use (no dizzying array of buttons to push for features I would never use), reliable, and works well. We had friends recommend Speed Queen washers and dryers to us, and we would do the same for others.

This dryer has been broken most of the time I have owned it. Burns my clothes and does dry completely all at the same time. Speed queen has been terrible about fixing the issue. So disappointed with speed queen and the dryer.

buyer be aware...

lifeisgood21 7/19/2022

This dryer has only has two timed drying settings: 30 minutes and 60 minutes, there is nothing in between. And since the dial does not move down to zero/shut off, you have no way of knowing how much time is left on the cycle. Looking at the dryer in the store I had no idea, nor was it obvious, that the dial did not slowly move down to zero. Also the cool down period only lasts three minutes. If you use the auto-sensing feature, you have no idea when the clothes are done except for minimally audible beeping are the end of the cycle. So while it functions as the manual explains, it is not a very user friendly dryer. For those reasons I would not purchase it again or recommend it.

Not worth the money

bevg 7/8/2022

From day one my Speed Queen dryer did not dry as well as my old Maytag. At four years the heat board died. Due to a national shortage, it was repaired until a new heating element was available. With that now replaced, it is working fine.

BrandyW 6/28/2022

Had for 2 months and quit heating. That was 8 months ago and we are just now able to get parts. The warranty company is different than the place we purchased it and they are worthless. Had to buy a new dryer after spending so much. Now it's in storage and we have to get it out and move our other dryer out for them to come service this one. Very disappointed. Love my Speedqueen washer but will not buy this brand again.

A solid unit

mortthesport 6/2/2022

I know this is a well made unit and a good warranty. However, after only 4 months we had to replace two electronic boards. I wish I had bought the DR7. Having timed cycles limited to 30 and 60 minutes is not efficient as you sometimes either under or over dry the clothes. Oftentimes you only need 5 more minutes. The same for sensor dry. It can over dry the clothes, causing shrinkage.

Solid Dryer

Kim22 5/31/2022

This dryer seems to dry our clothes quickly. I wish it had a time setting between 30-60 minutes. Now on to our first repair. After only using the dryer for 1 week, we started hearing what sounded like a coin in the dryer. I removed the clothing to check for a coin..No coin, so I kept the clothing out and turned it back on, and still heard the sound. When the service person came, he noticed when the dryer was built, the upper bulkhead sheet metal was caught on the door panel frame, pushing top inward into the drum. It's was not aligned correctly when built. The service person had to bend it to adjust and reinstalled. We are very disappointed in paying this much money for a dryer and to have it build like that

Why I bought a new Speed Queen dryer.

Ronnie DeFord 5/24/2022

I bought a new Speed Queen dryer because the other Speed Queen dryer I bought 9 months ago with a 5 year warranty has a defective heating element. The defective heating element part is on back order. So, to continue to have dry clothes for my 2 toddlers I thought it was appropriate to buy a dryer that matches my washer. Whenever the replacement part arrives and is repaired, I will have a backup dryer. What a convenience!

Don't be fooled by speed queen

Mosie 3/15/2022

Owned a speed queen dryer for three months. Broke twice first time was repaired in four days. Two weeks later heating element went again. A month now waiting for heating element. So we have not been able to use our brand new speed queen dryer. Don't be fooled that this is the best on the market. Their excuse is supply chains. Their excuse is that this is how America works right now. When I asked for them extending my warranty for lack of use they said they don't do that. When I asked for an exchange they said they don't do that. So buyer beware speed queen it's not what you think it is. They are basically saying f u we have your money and we'll get to you when we can

Currently sitting in a laundromat

MS21 3/14/2022

I have had my brand new Speed Queen dryer for less than 1 year and have been nothing but disappointed with this machine. It was installed dented and now the heating element is broken and because of supply issues, I cannot get a new heater. I have been without a dryer now for 20 days with no solution in sight and not a lot of support from Speed Queen. It's been pathetic. I'm grateful for shoddy laundromats that cost an arm and leg that I never thought I'd frequent - but have working machines to help me get my family of 6 laundry done.

Our heating element just went out at the three year point. We are now awaiting warranty service to fix so will see how that process goes. We love the dryer; however, hoping the next element lasts the duration we were hoping for from a Speed Queen product.
