Iíve been looking around and asking a few people about the discontinued Speed Queen Imperial washer/dryer set and thought Iíd ask here too.

Would an Imperial set be a good buy today? I see them pop up every now and then and know a few people here have a set... so Iím curious as to how youíre enjoying them multiple years on now.

Iíve heard some say they had balancing issues so that is a bit of a concern. My current laundry room addition (older home) is going to be torn down and redone but the home is above a crawl space and not on concrete slab. Not sure if that should be an issue if the washer is leveled correctly.

I love the reliability of Speed Queen & the simplicity of the Imperial set...something I struggle to find in todayís front loaders. Iím not a technophobe (right in the middle of the millennial generation) but I love clean lines and physical knobs and buttons.

Anyway, would you guys buy one if available used/new in 2019?

Yes buy a set if you can find one, this last generation washer needs a really solid floor to prevent vibration and possible walking issues, the newer generation washers are much better in this regard + even larger capacity.
