The LG WT1701CV is one of the most attractive washers around, reviewers agree, thanks to a high-tech-looking front control panel that's also easy to use. But it doesn't get ugly when it comes to performance, earning raves for that from experts and owners alike. At 4.9 cubic feet, it's a great fit for all but the fluffiest king-sized comforters, and its self-balancing technology means you don't have to rebalance big loads as often. See our full review »
You'd think at this price the most the GE GTW680BSJWS can offer is a few basic features, but you'd be wrong. Loaded with enough cycle options to suit any laundry fanatic, it's also super simple to use, making it a great choice for the dump-in-and-wash crowd as well. The GTW680BSJWS gets good ratings for its cleaning performance and cleans clothes faster than practically any other top-loader on the market. See our full review »
The Kenmore Elite 31633 is a great choice for big families because it holds a LOT of clothes -- its 6.2 cubic foot washing basket is currently the largest of any residential machine. And, in spite of its massive capacity, Kenmore's Accela Wash technology means its cycles are pretty dang speedy. The Kenmore Elite 31633 is well-featured too, with plenty of cycle options and an internal water heater. The washer comes in metallic silver or in white as the Kenmore Elite 31632 (Est. $1,100).

No washing machine draws more praise than the giant, 5.2 cubic foot Kenmore Elite 41072 (offered in white) or its metallic silver identical twin, the Kenmore Elite 41073 (Est. $1,100). It's packed with features to make cleaning clothes easier than ever, including a lightning-fast, 15-minute Express Wash (although the Normal cycle takes only 38 minutes). Cleaning performance is excellent on all cycles, and the washer earns a 2016 Energy Star Most Efficient designation. See our full review »
The Maytag MHW3505FW lacks some high end features found in more upscale front-load washers, but it also lacks their high price. Expert reviewers give it solid ratings across the board, and owners rave about it, saying its cleaning performance is excellent. They also say it's very easy to use and its 4.3 cubic foot capacity is a good choice for standard laundry room setups where a higher capacity washer may be a squeeze.
