3 Largest Top Load Washer with Agitator Models for 2021

Posted by Jeff Allaire on Feb 25, 2021 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 2021 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!

Maytag vs Samsung Front Load Washer Comparison (Reviews, Ratings, Prices)

Posted by Bob Allaire on Jan 25, 2021 10:00 AM 

 

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! Let's take a look at these two competing models in our Maytag vs Samsung front load washer comparison.
