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 would be the modern machines with a washing machine impeller versus an agitator. You can check out our washing machine buying guide for even more information!
These new high-efficiency top load washers do not have the traditional agitator in the tub. The agitator has been replaced with an impeller device that is designed to move the clothes to the bottom of the tub and do the washing. The impeller is like a very short, flat agitator in a cone shape. The beauty of it is that it opens up a ton of space in the tub for extra washing.
