Review The Maytag MVWB765FW is a top-load washer that features an agitator.
The Splendide 2100XC washer dryer combo is made for mobile environments, meaning it has a rugged design for recreational vehicles or campers, though you can still use it in a small apartment. It uses a stability regulator to reduce noise and has simple controls.
The LG WM3488HS washer dryer combo is a compact unit that uses LG’s 6Motion technology, which means the drum combines six different motions during a wash cycle.
The LG WM3997HWA washer dryer combo uses TurboWash technology with high-pressure nozzles. It may be the largest washer dryer we reviewed at 4.2 cubic feet, but its efficient use of space makes it one of the best options out there.
The Haier HLC1700AXW is a compact washer dryer combo with 11 wash cycles and four dryer cycles and an average capacity.
The Summit SPWD2200W washer dryer combo has 2 cubic feet of washing and drying capacity and a big, easy-to-read digital display.
The Deco DC 4000 CV washer dryer combo offers both venting and condensing for the dryer cycle. This means you can vent air to a traditional outlet, which is generally associated with more efficient drying, or have moist air go through a condensing process with no need for venting of any kind.
The Midea US-FC70-DS12DSH washer dryer combo is an affordable, highly functional machine that is compact and easy to use, and it has a few extras like an automatic load sense. This washer dryer is also energy efficient and comes with a generous warranty.
The Haier HLC1700AXS offers what people are seeking in a washer dryer combination – compact convenience. It's also noticeably more energy efficient than many we compared.
Large capacity is generally regarded as a selling point, but not everyone has a sprawling laundry room. If you need a compact front loading washer, we recommend the LG WM1388HW.
The Kenmore 41302 is not the best for energy efficiency, but it has a large capacity and a host of other convenient features. Steam cleaning is one of the standout features. Not everyone considers this a must-have, but it is nice. Steam can be great for getting tough stains out.
A lackluster warranty and energy efficiency score keep the GE GFW450SSMWW from making the top spots in our lineup, but this large capacity front-load washer still has some good things to offer. It has a quick cycle for when you are in a hurry and steam cleaning power for breaking up tough stains.
With an interior capacity of 5 cubic feet, the Samsung WF50K7500AV is a big front load washer. This means you can do fewer loads of laundry, since you can put considerably more items into it for each wash cycle and still have enough room for clothes to get thoroughly cleaned.
The Electrolux EFLW317TIW offers a good combination of features with a great warranty that makes this washer stand out from the group.
The Bosch WAT28402UC is a speedy and compact front load washer that will be ideal for small living quarters since it measures only 24 inches wide. It has a host of convenient features, but they come at a relatively high price.
The Samsung WF5000AW has a big capacity without a big pricetag, and it is very energy efficient compared to other popular models. Based on our research it is an excellent value if you want an upgrade, but do not have an endless budget.
The Maytag MHW3505FW has a stellar warranty and is one of only a handful of washers that clean with steam for less than $1,000. The Steam for Stains wash option can be added to select cycles, and will be a great tool for removing tough stains.
The Kenmore Elite 41072 has a massive 5.2-cubic-foot interior and a host of other family-friendly features. This is the largest front-load washing machine in our comparison so it can hardly be expected to be the most energy efficient, but if you have a big family it is worth a look.
The Black & Decker D6000 iron has average wattage compared to others on our lineup and will work well with many types of garments and fabrics.
