#1 Rated Top Load Washer

#1 Rated Top Load Washer

A well-known leading consumer magazine product reviewer has recently put 7 of the best Top Load Washers inLG top load washer rated #1 Canada through their stringent product tests to see who produces the best model, and who delivers the best value for money.

Each Top Load washer selected for testing was subjected to rigorous standardized tests. Each washer was assessed on the following 7 characteristics:


  • Washing Performance
  • Energy Efficiency
  • Water Efficiency
  • Capacity
  • Gentleness
  • Noise
  • Vibration
  • Cycle Time

The models tested were representative of the four main appliance manufacturers in Canada, with entrants from GE, Samsung, Maytag and LG. The prices of all of the models tested were between $700 and $1,000, with LG’s WT1101CW model coming in as the least expensive, and Samsung’s WA484DSHA representing the top end of this price range.

Despite having the most modest price tag the, LG WT1101CW won or tied in all of the categories considered by the testing team, and was elected as the overall winner just ahead of Samsung’s WA422PRHD, which has an MSRP of $100 more than the LG Model. The LG WT1101CW washer was a standout in performance and efficiency in the top load laundry category, and featured a stylish LED interface to select wash cycles and water temperature as opposed to the cumbersome protruding knobs and dials found on most top load washers, especially in this price range.

The auto balancing feature – where by the washer automatically compares the clothing weight on each side of the drum and rebalances it to prevent vibrations – was noted as a real winner and not only keeps the washer quiet while in operation, but should also yield a longer lifespan as the components do not get the rough ride they would in some of the other models tested.

We’re excited to get our own first look at the new top load washers, but we’ll take the experts’ advice on this one. For a closer look at LG's New Top Load Washer visit the LG website here.

*The LG WT1101CW top load washer has been rated #1 in it’s respective category by a leading consumer magazine as of 5/29/2013.
