The price of a Speed Queen wringer washer depends on the age of the washer, but as of September 2014, a new one costs nearly $1,000. A used Speed Queen wringer washer might cost as little as $150 if it is being sold for parts.
The Speed Queen brand came into existence in 1928, but stopped production of its popular washing machines during World War II to manufacture war-related items, including 20 mm shells and parts for military equipment. When the war ended, the company went back to manufacturing exclusively laundry equipment. As of 2014, the Speed Queen brand is one of the only brands that still manufactures wringer washing machines.
