This machine premixes the detergent and water in a separate compartment before being delivered to the drum. This results in a more even distribution of the detergent which means better cleaning efficiency. While it may not sound like much, it’s highly effective at improving the washes quality. See More
While the machine offers a lot of flexibility when it comes to customizing the cycles, it will prevent you from making mistakes that can destroy your laundry. For example, it will not allow you to select the hottest water temperature or set very high spin speeds when you are washing your delicates or color-sensitive clothes. See More
This washing machine can ensure quiet and rumble-free running by using sensors that detect unbalanced loads. If it senses a risk of vibration due to uneven load distribution, it will automatically adjust and even out the load throughout the drum. See More
This washing machine has a 6.2 cubic ft drum, which is very large and should make laundry day easier even for very large households that produces lots of dirty laundry. It is one of the largest washing machines available in the market, taking the equivalent of almost two front-loading washer loads in a single cycle. Despite the larger volume, it’s Accela Soak technology ensures cycles don’t take longer than an hour. See More
This machine allows you to change the temperature, soil level, and spin speed. Each can be set to five different levels, adding a lot of flexibility to cycles. It is also possible to add steam treatment, an additional rinse cycle and other options. See More
The 5.0 cubic f. capacity is large enough for 2-3 laundry baskets, which is useful for reducing the number of wash cycles you need for all your family. It’s also good washing large items such as bed sheets, blankets, and comforters. See More
This machine’s most unique feature is that Samsung included a smaller second door with the main door, so you can add forgotten items even when the machine is already running. Obviously, you’ll need to briefly pause the wash cycle before doing so. See More
Even though this machine comes with a companion app, it’s not a very advanced one. It has a troubleshooting feature that can help resolve potential problems, allows you to activate a washing cycle, and monitors the estimated time remaining. Additionally, a lot of users have complained that the app is very buggy. See More
The main LG WM5000HVA unit has a 4.5 cubic ft drum which has a myriad of cycles to choose from. The cycles are quick, taking only approximately 40 minutes for a normal cycle and 80 minutes for a heavy duty cycle. The smaller WD100CV washer has a 1 cubic ft capacity and can work independently from the bigger machine. You can put brightly colored or fragile items separately here to prevent damaging them or the rest of the laundry. Things like cloth diapers can also be washed separately from the rest of the laundry. See More
The doors are very large, which helps make the loading and unloading process easier. In addition, the drum is slightly tilted so it is easier to see and reach the back of the drum. This puts less pressure on your back and minimizes the risk of you forgetting something in the washer. See More
You can set the washer to the most effective settings available for each laundry type and situation. There are four cycles to choose from, ranging from heavy-duty to washing delicate materials. You can save water by changing the water level according to how filled the washer is. The spinner goes up to 800 rpm, which can effectively take moisture out of the laundry. See More
Measuring 35 x 20 x 20 inches, it’s definitely made for places where space isn't freely available. Weighing 61 pounds, it’s also relatively easy to move around. You can, for example, move it from a storage area to a bathroom or kitchen area when it’s time to do the laundry. The capacity of just 1.5 cubic ft is substantially less than what a full-sized washing machine can take, but is still enough to handle your personal laundry with ease. See More
This washing machine can be installed to an existing water hookup, but if you don't have one available, you can also connect it to almost any bathroom or kitchen faucet, using the included adapter. Once you’ve done with your laundry, it is also easy to detach the connection, for storage. See More
With a footprint measuring 24 x 25 inches, this machine is much smaller than standard washing machines. Its size lets you install it in compact apartments without hogging up much space. Despite the small size, its 2.4 cubic ft capacity should be enough to fit the laundry load of 2 people. See More
This washer has a steam feature available, something rarely found in a compact machine. Steam allows you to sanitize and freshen up your clothes in an effective manner. Also, while other washers apply steam from the top, with this unit the steam is applied from the bottom, allowing it to cover the laundry more evenly. See More
While there are lots of cycle customization options available, the machine will not allow you to go overboard and ruin your clothes. For example, you will not be able to use boiling hot water or maximum spinning speed on delicate cycles. See More
This is one of the most complete washer/dryer units available today. While other similar appliances only include the basic washing and drying settings, this unit offers many options. It has 14 different washer cycles and lets you control the temperature and soil level. When it comes to drying, it has various cycles and allows you to set the temperature and drying level: this way, you can safely dry a variety of materials. See More
Like with most combo units, it takes a long time to finish a complete cycle from dirty laundry to ready-to-wear clothes. It can take as long as 4 hours for just one load, as it adjusts the time automatically based on how filled the machine is. On the other hand, you don’t need to transfer the wet laundry from the washer to a dryer. See More
Since this machine can both automatically wash and dry your clothes without your intervention, you can leave it to do full laundry cycles while you sleep. You won't even be disturbed by the sound of the machine running since it has special sensors that detect vibration and, based on their readings, slows down the drum to allow the load to settle out if needed. Also, sound signals are automatically disabled, so you won’t get woken up unexpectedly. See More
