The Speed Queen TC5 - Features & Comparison vs the TR5

Posted by Meredith Czymmek on Apr 21, 2021 9:00 AM 

 

If you aren't deep in the laundry industry or a hardcore Speed Queen fan, you might have missed the controversy over Speed Queen's new top load models released in 2018. They had to make changes to meet energy efficiency requirements, and some of those changes involved the wash action of their top load models. This departure from what their fans were used to resulted in some backlash. Long story short, the new wash action is gentler overall, which is not necessarily a bad thing - but it wasn't ideal for some of Speed Queen's customer base. (Despite this controversy, as of this writing all of the TR series of washers have over 4.5 stars from customer ratings on their website.)

The TC5 is a return to tradition with a lot of the features that people loved about Speed Queen's 2017 and earlier washers. It was updated in 2021 from the TC5000WN to the TC5003WN.  We'll compare in-depth the differences between the TR5 model and the TC5 model below! (Speed Queen also released a front load model in 2019 - click the link to read our review!)

Posted by Jeff Allaire on Feb 25, 2021 8:30 AM 

 

Although front load washers are becoming more common on the market today, many people stand by the tried-and-true top load washer design. If you're looking for the largest top load washer with an agitator, you're in the right place. We've written about agitator washing machines before, but the main reason why people go for them is they use more water and can handle heavy soils better as a result, ideal for busy households and handling seriously dirty clothes!

(For more info on choosing a new washer, check out our washing machine buying guide.)
