couldn’t get through the whole video…. that voice was grating on my nerves! consumers needs a new voice. I felt like I was watching keeping up with the kardashians

Joey Suggs says:

Front loaders are prone to bacteria build up and stink. They also tend to break down more often and vibrate horribly. HE top loaders tend to wear clothes out excessively if they are near the bottom and leave clothes at the top uncleaned. Best option is still the top loader with agitator.

You have to be carefull when getting a machine,,especially if it’s going into the basement,,,stairway widths are barely 30 inches wide,,,doorways into the laundry rooms are 30 inches wide,,,if the machine is wider than 30 inches,,and you can’t turn it sideways because its too wide also,,your screwd,,,before you buy a machine,,,measure the area it has to pass through to make sure it will fit in your home,,,older machines were narrower ,,now the new machines are bigger and wider.

I am brought here by tyler oakley. and this vid is weirdly hilarious.

Wolf Plato says:

The very best thing about a front loader is that your clothes last sooooo much longer!

craigsclocks says:

Get the best and go with speed queen.

Russell Musick says:

I really wanted an HE washer because my water bill is pure robbery but from what I am finding out they are all expensive junky and don’t clean well.

Joan Hammond says:

DEFINITELY DON’T BUY MAYTAG DEEP FILL. DOES NOT WORK. DON’T BUY FROM SEARS. NO CUSTOMER SUPPORT. Josh is right. Buy SPEED QUEEN. Maytag is made by Whirlpool now and is not your old Maytag. Maytag service will tell you a broken machine is working AS DESIGNED.

yiyangcheng says:

Comforters are not made for these kind of washers at all

Josh says:

Get a speed queen

fucking Samsung explosive washing machine.

mangreat71 says:

I want to know the best name brand washing machines that can use any soap to clean clothes ? Give me the names of the portable ones that can do that to ?

POL128 says:

Are there any Front Loader washers that don’t use an aluminum “spider”? There seems to be lots of bad reports on galvanic corrosion on all manufacturers. Why don’t they use a stainless steel spider?

Alessandro says:

I am sorry for you living in the us. You are being ripped off. Here in Europe front loaders start at 150€ (they can wash only 12 pounds of clothes). I got a washing machine that can handle 20 pounds of clothes at a time, with the spin cycle up to 1600 rpm for only 450€. Clothes come out clean, very dry, and using very little water and electricity.

Growrena Russell says:

Turn down the music and report the details only

moretacos1 says:

Great, all I need is a hacker to take over my high tech washing machine and flood the house.

Emph Squee says:

Your clothes will come out dryer with these “high efficiency” washers because they barely get wet to begin with.

hogensan says:

Electronics tend to be crap.

Robin Red says:

why can i not get a phone number

RevolutionsPerMinute says:

Does Consumer Reports actually observe washers in operation? I purchased a previously top-rated top-loader LG and in the normal cycle it usually does not even cover the clothes with water when filling! There is no way to set the water level higher except to use the bulky/bedding setting which completely fills the tub unnecessarily. Multiple warranty service calls provided no help–it’s obvious that water conservation goals over-rode clothes cleaning goals.
