Best Top Load Washers for 2022

P140645 29z

Since washers sell for anywhere from $275 to $2,500, you are probably wanting to research what is out there so you can get the best one for your needs. The trend for front load washers has gone down slightly over the years mainly due to consumer concern with mold issues and the price tends to be higher than top load washers. A top load washer is a good choice because the water drains down and out, making it less likely for them to develop mold and odors than front-loaders. Home-Tech has been repairing and installing appliances since 1981. We know what is currently performing well with little need for repair so we put together a list for you to check into.

First you will want to decide on the type of top load washer you would like: an agitator top load washing machine or a high efficiency non-agitator top load washing machine.

Best Top Load Agitator Washers for 2022

If you are interested in a top load washer you aren’t alone. We are noticing more and more people going back to the good old standard in washing clothes for a number of reasons. They typically are easier to use as they tend to have less complex control panels, they are more ergonomically designed – you don’t have to bend over or stoop down to get your laundry in, and typically cost less than their front-load counterparts. Home-Tech not only repairs washers and dryers, we also sell them. So if you see any that you like on this list, click on the links for more information and contact us to purchase and install it for you.

Best Top Load High Efficiency Non-Agitator Washers

Top load washers without an agitator have impellers instead. So what’s the difference between agitators and impellers? Washing machines with agitators use a central post that twists back and forth rubbing against clothes to help break apart stains. In contrast, washing machines with impellers use a low-profile disc that spins/rotates the tub so the clothes rub against each other to get clean. This helps deliver gentle, efficient and thorough cleaning and helps clothing last longer. Of course, without an agitator, there is much more room in the tub making it easier to clean bulky articles as well. Home-Tech not only repairs washers and dryers, we also sell them.
