Steam Cycle Washer Technology - These Washers Have Awesome Cleaning Power!

Posted by Bob Allaire on Jan 16, 2019 11:00:00 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 a steam cycle washer - and you can find more features to consider in our washing machine buying guide, too. These cutting-edge washing machines feature a steam cycle in addition to traditional water cycles.

Steam in a washer provides improved stain removal and can help eliminate odors and prevent wrinkles. It works similarly to a garment steamer. Steam powerfully penetrates the fabrics, and the heat can help sanitize items as well. If you love cleaning with steam, there are also steam dryer models so you can purchase a steam-cleaning pair.

Speed Queen Washer Reviews (Built to Last 25 Years)

Posted by Alex Frank on Jan 16, 2019 10:00:00 AM

 

After 20 years of use, it isn’t uncommon for an old washer or dryer to bite the dust, leaving the owner scrambling to research new options. Once they start reading reviews online, however, the unsuspecting shopper may be dismayed with how many customers say that their laundry machines died after only 6-10 years, or sometimes even less! How can this be when their old machines, apart from an occasional repair, hardly caused any issues for over two decades?

Well, the answer is simple: They just don’t make things like they used to... BUT WAIT! Not all hope is lost, for we still have Speed Queen in our midst. They're still making machines just as durable as the good ol’ days! (Plus: Discover even more information on choosing a new washing machine in our washing machine buying guide!)

Top Loading Washers - Discover the Benefits

Posted by Bob Allaire on Jan 14, 2019 8:30:00 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!)

Amana Front Load Washer - Does Amana Produce a Front Loader?

Posted by Bob Allaire on Jan 13, 2019 9:00:00 AM

Many consumers have come to love the Amana brand for both kitchen and laundry appliances. Amana has been manufacturing appliances in the US since the 1930s and their products are well-known for quality and value. They produce solid products with good basic features at very affordable prices. Some consumers just love them!  

If you are in the market and doing your research on new washers, you may be looking for an Amana front load washer. As of this writing, Amana produces one 3.5 cubic foot top load model, and one 4.2 cubic foot front load washing machine. However, it is being discontinued, so it may become harder to find in the future. When this blog was initially published, Amana did not produce front load models. We'll review the Amana front load washer, plus the top load model just for ease of comparison. Check out our washing machine buying guide for more information on buying a new clothes washer!

Commercial Washing Machines For Home Use - Durable & Reliable

Posted by Bob Allaire on Jan 12, 2019 10:30:00 AM

 

Are you looking for the most dependable, longest-lasting washing machine on the market? If so, then you're probably looking at commercial washing machines for home use. These models are rare in the home appliances market, but they're out there. These washers are made with heavy-duty construction and often do not have the energy efficiency of consumer-grade models. They are priced similarly to many high efficiency top load washers but don't have as many of the modern "bells and whistles."  You will have to make some trade-offs if you want one of these models, but if durability is your most important criteria, a commercial washing machine made for home use is a great choice.

When it comes to the best makers of commercial washing machines for home use, the brand that most often comes to mind is Speed Queen. When researching a new washing machine, you'll certainly want to consider the Speed Queen brand - and check out our washing machine buying guide for even more information! 

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 - that's a pretty solid reputation right off the bat!
