Best all-around front-load washing machine
The $1,349 Electrolux EFLS627UTT is an exceptional front-load washing machine. It earned the best stain removal score to date and even has a dedicated dispenser for detergent pods.
Best all-around top-load washing machine
The Kenmore Elite 31633 has the best stain removal score of any top-loader we've tested to date and it's currently on sale at Sears for $1,100 -- a great value for a large-capacity washer.
Best washing machine design
It didn't excel at removing stains, but LG's $1,150 WT1801HVA top-load washing machine has a next-gen front-mounted display panel that looks great and is very easy to use.
Best speed cycle washing machine
Not only does Kenmore's $1,100 Elite 41582 washer have 14 cleaning cycles, a steam function and a drum light, it's also equipped with an "Accela" setting that shortens a normal cycle to just 30 minutes.
