I just purchased a 2019 \ 2018 Speed Queen commercial homestyle electronic control panel washer (LWNE22SP115TW01) and converted it to a 2017 residential unit (AWNE92SP113TW01). The commercial washers shares all the same internals as the 2017 residential unit except the control panel so all I had to buy was a 2017 electronic control panel, part number 202769P. This gives me more cycle options and the ability to select water level. Everything seems to work and I am thrilled that I was able to basically make a 2017 Speed Queen unit even though they are no longer in production.

I'm assuming you paid about 1000 bucks for yours, and what, 200 for the panel??? (no idea)

list it on ebay!!! Last awn 'new in box' brought $1875... FOB!!
Man, I'd sit in my shop all day long converting these over for $600 profit... but, before you buy a full semi-load, remember that the ebay one was not paid for 2 or 3 times too. It may be 'up for sale' next week again!!

I paid ~$1260 total.

Washer was $979 delivered

Control panel was $273 plus $9 shipping but is now listed for higher. The control panel was suppose to be new but came in a anti-static bag that was opened (had the tape cut) which had me worried but the panel worked

All in this is a lot of money for what it is, I only resorted to this as after looking for months and not being able to find a relatively new used unit in my area. The other crazy thing about the 2017 Speed Queen unit that sold for $1875 on ebay is that did not even include shipping. I saw some 2017 Speed Queen electronic units sell for $2K on ebay early last year as people found out they were going away.

What did panel add to the LWNE22SP115TW01

Impressive conversion. I've pondered connecting a tablet or laptop up to a SQ TL giving complete control of all settings.

Curious how the LWNE22SP115TW01 compares to the AWNE92SP113TW01 and what features you got with the added panel? I have a 2017 model AWNE92SP I picked up new in early 2018. The level of control over water and no drain on canceled cycle features are a must have for me.

Since SQ's 2018 model changes I've also wondered if the FL LWNE22SP115TW01 and LWN432SP115TW01 and LFNE5BSP115TW01 are any good since SQ residential FL are no more.

Once you swap out the control panel the washers for all intents and purposes are identical. The controls will operate identically. If you dive through the part manuals you will find they share basically all the same parts. The only part number difference I can find is the residential models transmission is part number 203768 and the commercial models part number is 38165P.

The control panel appears to talk to the output board that controls the motor through a simple UART interface. It probably wouldn't be too hard to make your own custom controller with a raspberry pi if you wanted.

Nice way to get great washer in 2019

Thanks Luke. Nice way to get a 2017 series SQ. Custom controller with a raspberry pi is a tempting project for my SQ. Also a great way to bring old machines back to life.
