What Are the Best Laundry Appliances?

Different spaces have different needs when it comes to doing laundry. Whether you have a large laundry room in your home or a simple laundry closet, our experts have selected the best washers and dryers of the year to upgrade your home. Whether you're looking for something affordable or something for a rental property, we're confident you'll find the perfect laundry appliances at Abt.

Best Stacked Washer/Dryer

LG WashTower with Center Controls

White LG WashTower with center controls
If your home is fitted with a laundry closet or you're looking to save space, the LG WashTower is a great choice. You don't have to sacrifice stunning design and helpful features to accommodate small spaces, either. We love the sleek, classic look of the white option, but this LG stacked washer/dryer also comes in black and fun, colorful hues. The controls are positioned in the center of the machine, between the washer and dryer compartments, so most people can easily set their desired cycles. Simplify laundry day with the ThinQ® app—you can start laundry while you're at work or running errands or check the remaining cycle time. This appliance also features large washing and drying capacity so you can wash large loads of towels or a king-size duvet without sacrificing space in your home.

Best Front Load Washer & Dryer

LG Smart Front Load Gas Dryer with TurboSteam

White LG front load washer
Pairing a compatible washer and dryer is an easy way to streamline laundry day, and we particularly love this set from LG. Both the front load washer and the dryer offer smart technology that makes this chore feel a little less tedious. Enjoy virtually controlling your washer and dryer so you don't have to worry about coming home to wrinkly clothing. Both machines also feature an extra-large capacity to fit everything from bulky towels to bedding. The washing machine offers TurboWash 360, which uses jet sprays at multiple angles for faster washing, while the dryer offers TurboSteam to refresh or sanitize garments with steam. When paired together, you'll enjoy the convenience of built-in intelligence; each appliance can select the optimal wash and dry settings, and the washer can even auto-select the compatible drying cycle based on what you're cleaning. They're the perfect pair.

Best Top Load Washer & Dryer

GE 7.2 cu. ft. Gas Dryer

White GE Top load washer
If you prefer the classic design and operation of a top-loading washing machine, then this GE set is for you. The GE top load washer features a stainless steel basket that's designed to reduce snagging so your clothes come out clean, not damaged. Convenient features like the Deep Clean Cycle or Speed Wash when you're in a rush gives you more control over laundry day. This GE gas dryer offers helpful features of its own, like the Wrinkle Care extended tumble setting that reduces wrinkling if you can't immediately remove your clothes. You don't have to worry about damaging or shrinking your items either thanks to Auto Dry; this setting monitors the air temperature and sets the optimal drying time accordingly. The best part? You'll save if you buy them together.

Best Impeller Washer

LG Top Load Washer with TurboWash3D™

White LG top load washer
Depending on your laundry needs, you might want the gentler cleaning of an impeller washer. Our favorite washing machine with an impeller is this LG top load washer with TurboWash3D™. TurboWash3D™ combines a powerful water stream, the wash drum's wave design and jet spray rinsing for more thorough cleaning; even the toughest stains are no match for LG's washing technology. This wash cycle also cleans faster, making laundry day more efficient. We also love the simple, straightforward dial control with options for Delicates or Bedding that take the guesswork out of doing laundry. The addition of ThinQ technology means you can connect your washing machine to your home WiFi and control it from your smartphone. You'll receive alerts when the cycle is done or even start it remotely if you're at work or on the go.

Best Compact Washer

Bosch 300 Series Compact Front Load Washer

White Bosch compact front load washer
Small size meets big cleaning power in this Bosch washing machine. This Bosch compact front-loading washing machine is ideal for those looking to save space without sacrificing performance. Its SpeedPerfect™ feature washes your clothing or towels in less time without sacrificing cleaning results so you can spend less time doing laundry. This compact Bosch washer also features a unique wave-shaped drum that's gentle on your most delicate clothing; depending on which cycle you pick, the direction of the drum rotation changes for heavy-duty or delicate washing. Looking to cut back on your energy costs? This laundry appliance is Energy Star® qualified, too, meaning it uses less energy than comparable models. If space is particularly at a premium in your home, this Bosch washing machine can even be stacked on top of a compatible dryer.

Best Commercial Washer

Speed Queen Commercial Top Load Washer

White Speed Queen top load washer with coin slot
If your rental property or commercial space needs to upgrade its laundry room, look no further than Speed Queen. We love this Speed Queen top load washer for its intuitive design and reliable performance. This machine is coin-operated, making it easy for tenants to use, while also being water and energy efficient. Users will easily maneuver the straightforward controls and familiar cycles like Permanent Press and Delicate, which means less service calls. The durable porcelain enamel construction is also ideal for high-traffic laundry rooms typically found in apartments and condo buildings. You'll also love its Automatic Balancing Suspension feature that provides industry-leading out-of-balance handling so that wash cycles aren't interrupted. If you want to install a laundry appliance you can rely on for years, this Speed Queen commercial washer is for you.

Best Value Washer

Samsung Top Load Washer with Vibration Reduction Technology+

White Samsung top load washer with dial control
Shopping on a budget doesn't have to mean you're stuck with a bulky, unsophisticated laundry appliance. Our best value washing machine is this Samsung top load washer with the Vibration Reduction Technology+ system because it offers modern design and smart features. Vibration Reduction Technology+ counterbalances the appliance to prevent noisy operation, especially during the spin cycle. Inside, the diamond drum design doesn't just look cool; its small water holes prevent snagging while still giving clothing a deep clean. We also love that this machine features an impeller, which is also known for it's ability to be gentler on clothes. The addition of a larger capacity means you can wash larger loads so you're doing laundry less often. This Samsung top load washer also offers some smart features, like Smart Care to troubleshoot your appliance from your smartphone.
