Posted by Bob Allaire on Nov 24, 2020 8:00 AM

Should You Buy the LG WashTower?

Posted by Jeff Allaire on Nov 18, 2020 2:41 PM 

 

LG is not the first manufacturer to combine a washer and dryer into a single unit - there are all-in-one washer dryer combos that wash and dry in the same drum, unitized front load washer and dryer units from brands like Speed Queen, and even laundry centers that unitize a top load washer and dryer, like Frigidaire's washer dryer combo. LG's WashTower is new for 2020, and it unifies a front load washer with a matching front load dryer, with the control panel conveniently sandwiched in the middle.

Where does this machine really shine? Why should you buy the WashTower rather than a stackable front load washer and dryer pair? Let's dig into the details!

3 Largest Top Load Washer with Agitator Models for 2020

Posted by Jeff Allaire on Nov 16, 2020 8:30 AM 

 

Although front load washers are becoming more common on the market today, many people stand by the tried-and-true top load washer design. If you're looking for the largest top load washer with an agitator, you're in the right place. We've written about agitator washing machines before, but the main reason why people go for them is they use more water and can handle heavy soils better as a result, ideal for busy households and handling seriously dirty clothes! And if you want to wash a king-sized comforter, big loads of towels, and more, the larger the washing machine, the better! (For more info on choosing a new washer, check out our washing machine buying guide.)

In this article, we'll go over our top picks for the largest top load washer models with agitators on the market for 2020 to help you choose the best option for your needs. Remember: these XL models tend to have larger dimensions than standard models, so check that you have enough space in your laundry area and that your doors are wide enough to fit these models into your home!

Posted by Bob Allaire on Nov 13, 2020 10:30 AM 

 

When searching for a new washing machine, there are many different factors, styles, and options you can take into account (which you can learn more about in our washing machine buying guide), but sometimes, tub size is what you are really focused on. If you are looking for the single largest washing machine on the market, we've got good news for you: LG makes the largest washing machine in both the top and front load category as of this writing.

We won't keep you hanging: the LG WT7800CW is the top load model and the LG WM9500HKA is the front load model (you can compare top load vs front load washers in our article). Samsung is a close second in the front load category with model WV60M9900AV, a washer with a 5.0 cubic foot main tub and a 1.0 cubic foot upper washer for small loads. We'll take a closer look at tub size in general and explore the details of these behemoths from LG. Let's dig in!

Quiet Washing Machine - How to Find a Quiet Model

Posted by Meredith Czymmek on Nov 13, 2020 9:00 AM 

 

More and more, consumers are interested in finding appliances with quiet operation. Noisy refrigerators, dishwashers, and laundry appliances can be especially intrusive in apartments, or homes with open floor plans. If you have a second-floor laundry room or laundry closet, a quiet washing machine might be crucial for your sanity!

Normal sounds in new washing machines include clicking and humming, gurgling or running water sounds as the washer fills and drains, and the sound of the basket spinning up and down in short or long bursts. One of the major factors tied to noise reduction is vibration reduction - the two go hand in hand! Although it's unlikely that you'll find decibel levels for most washing machines (unlike with dishwashers, where there is plenty of competition to be the quietest dishwasher), there are several key features you can look for from different brands that will help you find quiet washing machine models.

Agitator Washing Machines - Learn the Pros and Cons

Posted by Bob Allaire on Oct 30, 2020 8:30 AM 

  

If you are in the market for a new washer, you are probably trying to learn about every style and option available to you. One option worth exploring is the agitator washing machine (discover more of your choices in our washing machine buying guide).

With all the modern front load washers and top load impeller style washers on the market, traditional agitator washing machines can be easily overlooked. However, some manufacturers are still making traditional top load washers with agitators in the tubs to clean the clothes. These washers generally use more water and are smaller in capacity than newer models. However, the pros are many. Chief among them are wash performance with certain types of loads and durability.

How can this be when their old machines, apart from the occasional repair, hardly caused any issues for over two decades?
