The Electrolux Wave-Touch EWFLS70JIW is the best front-loading washer, according to TopTenReviews, which reports that users can choose from 12 options and 20 cycles for each load of laundry. The machine has energy-saving features and a large tub, making it useful for a family.
The large-capacity tub can save energy by allowing for fewer loads, TopTenReviews notes, adding that the machine consumes only 118 kilowatt hours annually and costs an estimated $13 per year to operate, as of 2014. The machine includes six soil levels along with six water temperatures for rinsing or washing. Specialty cycles include those for steam pretreatment, kid's wear, wool items, pet beds, stuffed toys and fast sanitize.
