I have been on this Board off and on for years and I noticed something after we bought a Speed Queen Washer and Dryer.

On many Posts Speed Queen and Amana are used interchangeably as if they are the same thing.

My question is why is that the case?
Are they just remarkably similar in design or is it more Amana's were just re-badged Speed Queens?
I am just curious because many Posts refer to each as if they are the same thing.

Raytheon owned both Speed Queen and Amana appliances for awhile, so that's why they WERE similar.

Now Whirlpool owns Amana.
