We have spent more than 40 hours researching and comparing the size, features, functionality and specifications of washing machines – front-loaders, top-loaders, portable washers and washer-dryer combos – to uncover the best machines. While the best choice for you depends on your living space and the needs of your household, our research has identified the best products in every category of clean.
Prices varies greatly across categories, but as we researched we found that the best-selling washers on sites like Home Depot, Lowe's and Best Buy cost about $600. When we averaged the price of the premium units, they cost about $1,000. We researched and highlighted products from many price points so you can make a decision that balances what you value most, whether that be price, quality, capacity or other features.
