Top Load Washer

  • Design
    Opens from the top. Wash action is driven by an impeller or an agitator. Matching dryers still open from the front.
  • Controls
    Toward the back, on top
  • Capacity
    Top load models have a wide range of capacities based on price points but usually offer the largest capacities available
  • Water Levels
    Many top load washers use lower water levels to meet today’s efficiency standards. However, there are models that let you add more water to select cycles — like the Deep Fill option from Maytag.
  • Comfort
    May be harder to reach the bottom of the wash basket depending on your height or the height of the washer.

Front Load Washer

  • Design
    Reversible door swings open from the front. Pairs are stackable for small or vertical spaces.
  • Controls
    On the front, toward the top
  • Capacity
    Like impeller models, front load washers may provide greater capacity since there is no agitator in the middle.
  • Water Levels
    Models that use HE detergent use lower water levels and concentrated cleaning so you probably don’t need to use as much detergent as you might be used to.
  • Comfort
    May require a bit of bending or reaching. A simple solution: laundry pedestals. Pedestals bring your appliances to a more convenient height and some offer storage for detergent and fabric softener.
