I just replaced our laundry pair. A Speed Queen which was over 28 years old and had given good service all that time. Replaced the pump belt and the water valve in that time and nothing on the dryer. However the washer was getting noisy and the main drive belt was getting worn. The auto moisture sensing on the dryer was not dependable any more.
Purchased a new Speed Queen pair. VERY disappointed! Both the washer and dryer tangle clothes terrible! QC was sleeping the day the washer came through the line as the control console is loose on the top. Also do not like the lid lock but that is a matter of personal opinion.
However! The dryer is no better than the old, worn out one was in the moisture sensing department! Load it and 45 minutes come back and unload it. Sometimes it will be on cool down, other times it will look as the timer never moved! This is actually the second dryer as I refused the keep the first one due to these problems! I let one load run until it finally shut down. One hour and fifteen minutes for that load! Ridiculous. These are electric dryers.
I have little hope these will be around 28 years from now!
