The easiest away to compare different washing machine brands is to search websites of retail outlets, such as the Home Depot or Lowe's, and use the compare washer options. Depending on the company, prices, specifications and customer reviews may also be compared.
The Home Depot allows up to four different washers to be compared at once. The user checks the "Select to Compare" box on the top left of each washer offered, then clicks on the top "Compare" button. The selected washers pull up on a separate screen. More information is found by clicking on each washer. Once in the individual washer screen, a zip code may be entered to check availability in local stores. The user may narrow the search by specifying items such as brands, types of washer or colors.
Lowe's works much the same as the Home Depot except this website requests a zip code entry on the right hand side of each machine description. Add the zip code and click the "Compare" button under the washer picture. Once up to four washers are chosen, click the "Compare" button on the right above the washer listings. The Lowe's comparison assistant places the washers and all information side-by-side in an easy to use chart form.
