The Amana NED4655EW is the least expensive model we considered but it still outranks quite a few others. It does not compare well in all ways but this machine will be just fine for laundry duty in many households.
The Maytag MEDX655DW lacks a lot of the features that are common on newer machines but still has some good capabilities and we found it for as little as $550. That is a great price for a dryer that is relatively large and ready to help tackle large piles of laundry.
With its gigantic capacity and long list of features, the Kenmore Elite 61633 saves you time by doing lots of laundry in one load. It does it efficiently, too, especially considering how large it is.
Review The Whirlpool WTW7500GW top-load washer is a little pricey, but it offers some innovative features that will make it feel like an upgrade rather than just a replacement for your old washing machine.
Review The Frigidaire FFTW4120SW is a top-load washing machine that strikes a good balance between modern and innovative while still being relatively budget friendly.

Review The LG WT7200CV top-load washer offers the right combination of energy efficiency, price, warranty and features. Many competitors we looked at in the same price range had several of those attributes, but this washing machine had all of them together.
Review The Hotpoint HTW240ASKWS is a basic top-load washing machine with only a few extras and only 10 cycles.
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 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 Haier HLC1700AXW is a compact washer dryer combo with 11 wash cycles and four dryer cycles and an average capacity.
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 Summit SPWD2200W washer dryer combo has 2 cubic feet of washing and drying capacity and a big, easy-to-read digital display.
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.
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.
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.
