Why You Should Consider Large Capacity Top Load Washers

A large capacity top load washer is anything over 4.8 cubic feet, minimizing your laundry faster as you work through piles of clothes, comforters, and towels. You can fit about 12 pounds of laundry or bulky items like a king-sized comforter in the washer drum. A standard top load washer can be 8 inches taller and have slightly more capacity than front load washers, creating more space to pair a front load dryer in your laundry room.

How We Chose Our Top Picks

When choosing our top picks, we narrowed down our requirements to laundry room space and washing performance.

Drum Size

How much space you have in your home for a top load washer will factor into the drum size you are looking for. Based on your needs, the drum size should be considered: are you washing a king-sized comforter or a twin-sized one? Do you wash a week’s worth of laundry or two days’ worth? What about bulky items?

Agitator VS. Impeller

Most top load washers have a central agitator or impeller plates, moving your clothes and mixing them with soap and water. But the traditional central agitator is a column with attached fans meant to shift clothes in the washer’s drum. In comparison, an impeller plate is built into the bottom of the drum and is better for delicate cycles and fabrics.
