3 Largest Top Load Washer with Agitator Models for 2023

Posted by Jeff Allaire on Dec 21, 2022 12:00 PM 

 

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 2023 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!

Should You Buy the LG WashTower?

Posted by Jeff Allaire on Dec 12, 2022 10:00 AM 

 

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!

Washing Machine Impeller - A Great Feature Giving You Extra Capacity

Posted by Bob Allaire on Aug 3, 2022 9:30 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 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.
