Types of Washing Machine

You will be easily dazzled by enormous categories of washing machines when we select and purchase washing machines on Amazon or Walmart. Now with the washing machine guide and explanation below you will no longer be confused. Most washing machines are sorted out according to their operating pattern: front-loading washing machines, top-loading washing machines, and dryers. There are also some portable washing machines, zoned washing machines, commercial washers, etc. If you are still difficult in making choices between various types of washers, you can also consult us for further advice.

  • Front Load Washing Machine for Sale

Front-Load washing machines, or so-called drum type washers, work resembling the traditional hand-washing pattern by using internal pressure to slam the laundry, just like a mallet repeatedly slapping the laundry to clean. It is observed and found out that laundries disposed by front-load washers are usually less wear and tear, more clean and tidy. The front door is open for putting in and removing the laundry. Unlike traditional top-load washers, front door automatic washing machines are not occupied, which can often be placed with the matching dryer overlapping or can be used to store other things.

  • Types of Top Loading Washing Machine

Top-Load washing machines, most of which are classified into the wave wheel type, are driven by electric motors to drive the wave wheel rotates and produces a vortex, which makes the laundry tumble, bump and recycle for several times to remove stains as far as possible. The upper door makes it convenient to put in and remove clothes, frees people from bending down, and occupies a relatively small area.

Heating is done through heating tubes at the bottom, and the water temperature can reach up to 80 degrees. Hot water can effectively dissolve oil and dirt stains and can increase the effect of active enzymes in detergents. Therefore, Heat Wash can ensure better cleaning performance.

ENERGY STAR can help families cut their related energy and water costs. ENERGY STAR certified clothes washers use about 25% less energy and 33% less water than regular washers.
