Clothing Washing Machines

Washing machines come in three basic categories - Front Loaders, Top Loaders, and High-Efficiency Top Loaders. Each of these categories has their own pros and cons. Front Loaders are likely to be the best value. These are traditional washing machines with center agitators. These are available at the lowest costs ($250 - $750). They do a great job of getting clothes clean and are time proven to be reliable. However, this may not be the best option for you if you have high water or energy costs. They are also quite noisy. High efficiency top loaders solve the issue of high energy consumption. They use less water and extract more water in spin cycles. These tend to be more expensive. Because their technology is quite recent, their reliability is still under question. Front loaders have the best performance. They are quietest, usually have the largest capacity, easy on energy, gentle on clothes, and dry quickly. Front-loaders are also the most expensive and are difficult to load and unload.
