Washing machines Buying Guides

Getting started

Stricter standards for Energy Star washers are the latest in a long line of efficiency improvements. But you can still pay top dollar for machines that left our test loads nearly as stained after washing as they were when we put them in. Indeed, we continue to find huge differences in performance among the models we test. Some of the models we've reviewed earned mediocre scores for washing. Some manufacturers also charge a premium for features and claims that didn't necessarily wash in our tests.

Fortunately, our tests also revealed washers that are both capable and efficient. Improvements include mid-wash soaking and more aggressive agitation. You'll also find more programmable wash menus and even built-in USB ports that allow for future software upgrades. See our Ratings.

Use our washing machine guide to find the right machine for your home.
