A study found that the most reliable front loader washing machines are LG brand, and the best top loaders are Maytag. Overall, top loading washing machines are found to be more reliable than front loaders.
All washing machines have advantages and disadvantages. The Maytag MHWE250XL is reported to be very reliable but has a low efficiency rating, according to Getprice. The Samsung WF330ANW is sometimes referred to as one of best washing machines available, but it is more expensive than the average machine. The Whirlpool WFW9250WL has only one reported disadvantage: the small size of the machine. This machine is suitable for a small family.
