Front load washers have become very popular in the US market since the early 2000s. Many consumers are drawn to these machines due to their large wash capacity and relatively low water usage. While top loading machines are making a resurgence in the market (in particular high efficiency impeller models), there is still a great deal of demand for front load machines. The cheapest front load washers start at around $700 to $900 before any promotional pricing or package deals kick in and come with advanced control panels and great wash options - so even these "entry level" models are high-quality.
If you are researching new washing machines, want to go with front load, and don't want to break the bank, you have options. Reputable manufacturers Samsung and Maytag both offer inexpensive front load washers priced under $900!
