No commercial guys out there , my situation is Speed Queen is no longer making the residential front load washers which is what I have been putting in this facility so Im going to have to go with something else but it needs to be a 27" model due to space limitations . I have tried some GE and Whirlpool residential washers but they didnt hold up well , I had a lot of issues with the consoles , the start and power buttons breaking because of cheap plastic stuff . We do laundry 24/7

Why don't you get the commercial Speedqueen and set it up for no pay?
I can't believe they discontinued the residential frontloader and now their residential toploader is crap too. There's nothing left to recommend.

I'm looking at the Speed Queen SYN20 , I would like some more info on it if anybody has experience with this model and maybe even a service / parts manual and what they cost . I got the basic stuff off the Speed Queen web site  .

Just discovered the Speed Queen SYN020 needs a 240v power source so I guess I will forget about that one . Looks like I may be going with the Speed Queen LFNE5BSP115TW01

Almost feels like they're making you jump through hoops to use their product. Why would they do that... haha
