The 5 Largest Front Load Washer Models for 2020

Posted by Bob Allaire on Jan 2, 2020 9:00 AM 

 

There are a lot of factors to consider when buying a new washing machine. If you've decided you prefer a front load washer and are looking for the largest model you can find, you're in the right place! In this article, we'll review the largest front load washer models of 2020 from a few great brands. Samsung made a strong attempt in this niche with the FlexWash front load washers with 5.5-6.0 cubic feet of total capacity, but reviews have been mixed on their reliability. So although Samsung offers the absolute largest front load washers on the market, at this time we will only recommend one of their highly rated non-FlexWash models, as well as models from LG, Maytag, and Whirlpool. 

Our reviews are numbered for your convenience but are listed in no particular order, and include models from 5.0-5.2 cubic feet. If you're looking for more information on choosing a new washer, check out our washing machine buying guide

3 Largest Top Load Washer with Agitator Models for 2020

Posted by Jeff Allaire on Dec 19, 2019 10:00 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!

Speed Queen vs Fisher & Paykel Washer - Alternatives for 2020

Posted by Todd Buehler on Nov 27, 2019 10:00 AM 

 

If you are looking to compare two awesome washing machine options that won't break the bank, you're in luck. We've singled out two great top loading agitator models from two niche brands that may be just what you are looking for when shopping for a new machine. Unfortunately, Fisher & Paykel has discontinued their popular agitator washer as of late 2019, so this article has become an "in memoriam." Don't worry - we'll give you other agitator washer brands to consider!

Speed Queen and Fisher & Paykel are not quite as well known as some of the other juggernaut appliance brands like Whirlpool, Frigidaire and GE, but that doesn't mean they don't deliver great products. Speed Queen is a specialty laundry manufacturer headquartered in Wisconsin that has been making great laundry products for both the commercial and domestic markets in the US for over 100 years. Fisher & Paykel is based in New Zealand and has been in operation since 1934. They have gained wide exposure in the US in the past 20 years and introduced many innovative products to the market, including a one-of-a-kind dish drawer dishwasher that made them famous with US consumers. Their agitator washer was a surprising hit when it came out a few years ago.

Best Top Loading Washer - GE vs Maytag (Agitator Models)

Posted by Bob Allaire on Nov 18, 2019 10:00 AM 

 

Many of the new highest capacity and most energy efficient washers have impellers in the bottom of the wash tub that perform the wash action and clean the clothes. These washers look enormous because they have no obstructions in the tub, but they have to be loaded properly to avoid tangling and to allow the clothes to be cleaned properly.

If you are not sold on the performance of these new designs, GE and Maytag still make agitator models that are very energy efficient and have big tub capacities. These are just a few of the factors to consider when researching a new washing machine (check out our washing machine buying guide for more info).  Most of the new washing machines are very different in design with direct drive motors and load sensors to control water usage, but GE and Maytag have packed most of this new technology into these models while sticking with the traditional agitator design that some people prefer.  

Let’s try to determine the best top loading washer for you by comparing two of their best agitator washer models.

Top Loading Washers - Discover the Benefits

Posted by Bob Allaire on Nov 18, 2019 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 top loading washers.

Top load washers offer a variety of tub sizes and offer a similar water and energy-saving story to that of front loaders. They load from the top so you don't have to bend over when loading and unloading the washer. This also eliminates the need for costly bases. Some don’t have agitators, giving you more room in the tub, allowing you to wash larger items such as quilts and bed spreads. (Side note: You can find even more information on washing machines in our washing machine buying guide!)
