LG Wave Series WT5170HV Graphite Steel Washer
My next selection is my favorite on the list, and my favorite to suggest to customers. Using only 5-10 gallons per load, this LG washer can barely be called a top-loader. Its fantastic design, excellent durability, and 4.7 Cu. Ft. tub size make it a favorite among my customers who prefer the top-loading style, but are not willing to give up efficiency. 14 wash cycles, 5 spin speeds, and even a child safety lock are only a couple of the features of this washer.
Despite all of this, the controls are simplistic once operation has begun. For those interested in a top-loading machine that is quiet, stylish, and affordable, you can't beat the LG, coming in at just over $1,000. It is also available in white, which will bring the cost down by around $80, but the graphite steel is eye-catching and simply fantastic.
