Find the Washing Machine that's perfect for you

Make an informed decision before you buy. A ConsumerReports.org subscription provides you with:

Recommended Washing Machines: As with clothes dryers, our tests revealed models that lower priced models were just as capable and efficient as models costing hundreds more.

Buying guide: We’ll help you decide which types (front-loading vs. top-loading) and features (dial vs. touchpad controls) will serve you best over the other options.

Where to shop: We surveyed readers and asked them to rate the best places to shop, online and off, for large and small appliances.

Ratings & Reliability: Our trained testers tried over 110 washing machines so you wouldn't have to. We evaluated for performance including: water and energy efficiency, noise, capacity, cycle time, and more.

Sampling of Brands Tested: Amana, Bosch, Electrolux, Fisher & Paykel, Frigidaire, GE, Kenmore, LG, Maytag, Miele, Samsung, Whirlpool
