What's the Difference? Top-Load vs. Front-Load Washers While most name-brand washer manufacturers offer both front-load and top-load machines, the majority of Americans still prefer top-loaders but don't favor agitators.

How I escaped the laundromat and embraced minimalistic laundry Research turned up the Giantex (actually Costway) portable mini compact twin tub washing machine, which I found on a few shopping websites for $110 — if it lasts 22 weeks, or about five months, it's paid for itself. So we rolled the dice and had one [...]

How to wash your down or down-alternative comforter Cleaning a down comforter isn't difficult, but it isn't as straightforward as tossing your jeans in the washer. Since down comforters are large, you'll need a big machine. Front-load washers work best. Since they don't have an agitator, there's less [...]

Trying to tackle the tangle - Observer-Reporter

wood light selfportrait bright basement frombelow ceiling laundry lensflare washingmachine shallowdepthoffield selfie 2015 privpublic Photo by dharder9475 on Flickr

After I’ve unwound my leg, I toss the wraps into the washer with T-shirts and other smallish things. During the 20 minutes in the wash, the wraps snake themselves around everything, including each other, and emerge at the end of the cycle an impossible clump. I toss the clump into the dryer, never losing hope that the warm air will loosen things. Apparently, there are 10 billion different types of knots and tangles, all of which are just hovering there in our washing machines and our pockets and purses, ready to mess with us. According to the theory, every place at which one bit of string... All it takes is a bit of motion to cause the knotting. This is why headset cords get tangled after just a few seconds in your pocket, and why necklace chains cannot be trusted when stored in a box.

Best Washing Machines of 2016 - ConsumerReports.org

Of the 100-plus washing machines in our washer ratings , this was the best. Wash time is 70 minutes using the normal wash, heavy-soil setting, and less time if you use the normal-soil setting. With a claimed capacity of 5. 2 cubic feet, this is among the biggest of the HE top-loaders we've tested, and is larger than many of the front-loaders. You'll be able to wash a king-size comforter in this washer. Our tests have found that king comforters readily fit in washers with a capacity of 4. 5 cubic feet or more. And because the tub spins at a higher speed than an agitator machine's, more water is extracted, shortening dryer time. Wash time is 75 minutes using the normal wash, heavy-soil setting.
